Action 2009 Demo

Well, it's been a (very very busy) week, and I finally have a bit of time to sit down and write the report on Action 2009 and our demo there.

Unfortunately I did not grab the opportunity to go out and take pictures of some of the excellent other demos there. I am in particular looking forward to seeing the ace Nosferatu demo that will be completely finished for Crisis in Antwerp. I WILL take pictures in Antwerp.

The event was a lot quieter than in previous times I had been attending. It is very obvious that the amount of UK troops deployed to Germany has dropped a great deal; it was new for me to run into more Germans and Dutch than English, at Action Rheindahlen.

Trader selection was fair, but not much to tempt my wallet this time. I did splurge on paint though, should have most of the deficiencies in my stock sorted again.

As for our own games, we got a fair amount of interest - but primarily in the miniatures and painting, not quite as much in the rules themselves. I think we must have created some name recognition though, as the plates were hard to miss:

I'll be posting a further report from our demo at Action 2009 lateron. For now here's just a quick copy of the posters I used to put on the promo board - A2 this time, I'm looking at A1 or A0 next time.

I'll be re-evaluating what to put on them text-wise. But I'm quite happy with the graphics as they stand, got lots of nice feedback on it too.

First, I'll be off to bed though.

Action 2009: T-1 days

I've been quite busy the last couple of days. Good news is I'm nearly
ready for the demo game tomorrow:

- Cards are all done
- Quick Ref sheets are all done (Thanks for the help, Lorne!)
- Built my whopping big promo board (2x 1.20x60cm), and it's actually stable and holding together ;)
- Just got back from the copy shop with oodles of copies to go onto the promo board
- Army List Dwarves is done

- Still need to do: Army List Orcs, Army List Elves (Plains + Mountain)

This means I might get some sleep tonight ;)
