Salute, spoils and never drinking again.

So we all got in to London at about half sevenish on Friday night sat down in The Fox (I think) for something to eat, started on the beer…and then it got a bit fuzzy. A great night and a shity morning. We got back to the hotel room at about half two and I was up at just gone five with that lovely ‘oww I dodged a hangover’ feeling, sat down for breakfast and then I hit me, I was still a bit pissed and ready to blow.
Meany manic hangover cures later and we shuffled over to Salute, it was quite clear we were not signing up for the marathon.

Got in before the show opened and had a quick walk around and picked up the 7TV rule book for a mate of mine and had a chat with the guys at Crooked Dice then straight over to Black Hat to scoop up Strange Aeons (looks amazing, more stuff up about it soon!) and had a fragile sit down (I was still feeling a bit rough) then the show opened up, josh and I ran some demos and chatted to fellow gamers, occasionally you get a few people that like to get narky but this at this show everyone we talked to were straight up down to earth folk so that was cool.


The day went on, the hangover left and I bumped in to an old mate of mine (who had been up all night on some kind of hallucinogenic cacti) and I picked up some stuff I liked the look of, EDEN starter set/books/limited edition Malifaux and such like (I got Hive of the Dead signed!) .

All in all a bloody good weekend out in London playing with miniatures, drinking and seeing friends.


  1. Good to hear you also got a good haul at Salute. Thankfully I managed to dodge the hangover, though 3 pints of cider before having anything to eat at dinner is not the best idea I've had.
