Gamesday America in Chicago this year. This will be the first time I have attended Gamesday and the first time I have ever been to a "Con". Normally the cost and time involved has prevented me from attending conventions. But, Gamesday is cheap, lasts one day and Chicago is close enough to drive. So, I have purchased my tickets, reserved a hotel room and I am counting down the days. I am even RSVP'ed via the Facebook event listing.
The primary reason I am going will be to see the Black Library team that will be attending. I am a huge fan of the Warhammer 40K universe. I have been enjoying the Horus Heresy series immensely. I plan on taking a lot of photos and a couple videos that I will share with my readers. I am hoping to snag a copy of Promethean Sun by Nick Kyme. I wanted to purchase a copy of the book but the cost of shipping from the UK put it out of reach for me.
I don't play Warhammer Fantasy or Warhammer 40K but not for a lack of desire. I just simply don't have the time or space. But, I am still excited to see all of the miniatures and the Golden Demon painting competition.
So, I look forward to going and meeting some interesting people.
