So with only a day to go before myself and Bull set off for Salute I'm feeling rather upbeat – if I can just get through Friday's work day unscathed…ha!
We're meeting up at the Bluewater shopping centre for some breakfast before heading off to Excel. It's become a bit of a ritual now and makes a surprisingly good meeting place, albeit half an hour away from the venue, plus breakfast is a must before a big event like this. We should get to Salute around 11am, depends how well the tea and bacon sarnies are going down!
If you can spot this funny guy…
|Six glasses of wine for breakfast makes you look like this!|
…wearing this t-shirt…
|The real one will actually be ironed on the day!|
…with a camera around his neck most likely, you've found me!
If you don't want to shout "Dark Templar!" across the hall to get my attention try "Mike!" – although you may find a dozen blokes turn around at the same time!
The shopping list is looking a tad more sensible.

Cryx Warwitch Siren character;

In fact, anything really.
Other things to do:Catch up with the Critical Mass Games crew;

Have a demo game of anything else that looks interesting;
Not buy any more Malifaux – my shelves are creaking;
Not buy any 40k or Forgeworld – it'll end up on Ebay in a week;
Not buy any more dice… unless they're really, really good;
See if I can spot any bloggers…
Hope to see a few of you there tomorrow. For those of you not going I hope to take a few pics – if I don't get too distracted!
