That's right, tomorrow is the biggest day of the UK wargames calendar and thousands of gamers will be heading to Excel in the Docklands to hand over lots of money to hundreds of traders, look at some very nice games, get sore feet from the concrete floor, get eye-strain from the lighting (unless they've improved it), suffer olfactory assault from some gamers and those who have significant others will be trying to work out how to get their huge stashes of acquisitions home without arousing comments about how much they've spent and why on earth have they bought more figures when they have a whole room full of ones that they haven't painted yet.
Following the tradition of the last couple of years, there will be a meet-up of bloggers at 1pm in the centre of the hall - see the map below (the red dot indicates the meeting place).
We got quite a crowd last year and I hope that we will see even more people this year.
I'm intending to be very restrained and not part with lots of cash this year. I'll still have a very big and heavy bag to take home though as I will be collecting some pre-orders.

Donnington (paid already) - some Bulgar cavalry
