If you live near Birmingham or can get there over the next three days I highly recommend this show. We loved last year and it is eating us up we can’t be there this year.

Glad to see you talking a bit of Gaslands – I’ve not managed to give it a shot yet, but it looks a lot of fun. I mean who wouldn’t want to convert up some old Hot Wheels to game with?

I have found the secret to success!

Spray paint random stuff with silver and brass tones spraypaint and call it “Steam Punk”………

Otherwise everything looks pretty awesome at this years Con!

For some reason Gaslands reminds of an old game Battle Cattle where you up-armoured bovines in to a mighty fighting moochines 🙂
