Can you hear me at the back?

I wouldn't blame you if you couldn't, as I'm a little hoarse. "Naaayyy!"I hear you say.

I do the jokes, buddy.

Games Day. Well, that happened. It was great too, but the sheer scale of it was so vast and the ambient noise so loud, I had to shout to make myself heard all day and was left with little or no ability to speak ("Hoorah!" they cry). Thank you in huge great big dollops to everyone who came and queued for the signings, everyone who had a question or a comment, everyone who said hello, and everyone, basically. Also an especially shout out to Steve, who brought his custom built Blood Pact army to show me. Pictures of this must be distributed to all immediately. It was fantastic. Badger Guy Haley at White Dwarf until he does a feature on it (well, don't ACTUALLY badger him, just an odd email request, maybe).

There are pictures of Games Day and a report on the BL boards. Go look.

*laughs and continues to laugh in a suitably evil manner*

But 'twas a brilliant day. And I lost my vioce too. Only not to shouting but to endless chatter.

Now I just have to come up with something as devilishly fiendish for next year. Though in truth you all brought it upon yourselves.

So there! :P

Love n lembas
From me!!!

Oh I have to see this Blood Pact army! My friend (who has a gigantic Tanith army) and myself are working on a Blood Pact army together now, and inspiration would be awesome. How do I badger this Guy Haley? I must see it!

A little hoarse you say?

Ah, so that explains the long face!

(Boom-tish etc! Hmm. Maybe I should leave the jokes to you...)

One of my friends at my store is making a Blood Pact army, using normal Guard rules. I keep telling myself I'm going to start a Bluebloods army, but...haven't yet.

Just wanted to say big thanks for keeping me immersed in your Eisenhorn books for way too much time again and again and again. Actually bought all three books in the series three times now... all but one time intentionally.

Suprised you could stand the noise, to be honest. Or the smell (Ohhh, the stench of a thousand damp nerds). Or the humidity. I knew by the end of the day it was driving me nuts. That being said, I proceeded to catch something vile and have spent the past week being ill.

But then again, you did get to hang around in the VIP lounge, which no doubt had fagrant palms, and drinks cooled by ice brought in from space.

Hmmm. Maybe they'll publish pics of that Blood Pact army on one of the websites? As much as I'd love to see it (Can't get enough Blood Pact. Might even roll them in Aeronautica Imperialis), I can't bring myself to buy another White Dwarf, even if it does contain some hot, Dan Abentt-based action.

So it was Games Day gave me this illness. Someone else has been struck down with it too.

I knew people were bad and such be avoided.
