I have to say this was an excellenty run event. For starters a great venue combined with ease of transport and a super cheap ticket price with inclusive miniature already puts Gamesday in a bad light.
The variety of manufacturers and there how approachable and friendly are is where this event really shines. They talk freely about where they came from and where they want the business to go in the future. They happily speak about upcoming releases and eat up feedback of all kinds, GW could learn a lot from this approach. With all this variety the day feels too short to take everything in and you are constantly on the go, not like at Gamesday where I often find myself bored and having covered everything by 2 o'clock.
Other refreshing things was just the variety of different things on display entered in the painting competition, after all it gets a bit boring after the 100th marine in Golden Demon. Here are some examples of entries on the day.
