Well, on Saturday we went up to London for Salute (in a visitors capacity) and had a very good day.. though we (well, I) might have spent a bit too much.
It was really busy this year.. much more so than I remember it being the last couple of years, so hopefully thats a good sign of the times and means that our hobby is doing well. I really think advances in technology have helped this, there was lots of MDF modular terrain using these new laser cutting techniques, 3D printing and Kickstarters and crowdsourced games all over the place - I think this last one has had the biggest impact on the gaming community ensuring that companies don't need to source their funds up front is a major boon to the smaller companies with tight margins.
Salute proved a very good opportunity for us to engage (sorry shameless plug) with other companies in a more business capacity as well as look at all the good and bad points for all the stand present so we can really make the most of ours when we get to Valhalla.
So yeah, all is going well. We got through our draft copy of Engage, which has taught us a lot and also made us realise how tight the deadlines are before we pack up the car so the show.
Anyway, I leave you with a couple of images from Salute.
