An added bonus was that the Edinburgh League of Gamers (or at least one representative) had made the journey up the road with his Space Crusade participation game that we'd missed at Claymore. The game ( as ever for an ELG PP game) looked great, played simply and was great fun (it received the best PP game award I seem to remember).

The tables on demo tables were all looking great. I only managed a few pictures I'm afraid. I had a interesting chat with members of "The Iron Brigade" about their Viking Raid table. They had been playing the raid earlier in the day using the SAGA ruleset, but had set it up afterwards as a visual piece. Great (SKELP prize winning) table with not only the main battle going on but loads of interesting side stories.
The other table I spend a good while looking round was the RAF Leuchars Normandy campaign table. I'd had a good chat at Carronade with these guys. They were touring the shows following the campaign trail of the US Airborne on (and following) D-Day.
More pictures of the other tables are available on via the Pendraken Forum (not my photo's I must say).
The Traders seemed to all be happy enough, but after unexpectedly buying some armour last week I wasn't there to buy much. Still picked up a handful of civilian looking Heroclix for modern gaming and managed to put myself in a fuzz as ever looking at the Crooked Dice and getting trapped between the old want/can't do yet gamer spin (after 2 visits and promises of returning later I had to remove myself from the hall with promises that I'd buy when I was nearer ready to look at the game).
A grand way to spend a couple of hours anyway, and I'll be giving it good thought about going next year.
