Horus Heresy Weekender Preview

Tomorrow is the start of the first (and no doubt soon to be annual) Horus Heresy Weekender and yours truly is going to be very much in attendance!

I've been quite excited about this event since it was announced a few months ago. I wasn't all that surprised that GW out the event on as 30K is clearly a very lucrative line that goes beyond the remit of 'specialist game'. Having only ever been to a biomedical conference before this (FYI, I was an ultrasound model) I'm not really sure what to expect. There are seminars, lectures and signings - usual stuff  plus demonstrations and participative stuff which intrigues me. Tickets were advertised as "extremely limited" but only sold out last week having been on the FW homepage for a long time so I have no idea how many people will be there. The full range of HH stuff will be on sale plus some new (Fulgrim!!!) and exclusive (Davin cultist) models as well as the usual one of t-shirts, prints and novellas. I'd been meaning to save up a wad of cash to blow on stuff but I just spent £750 on a puppy and £200,000 on a house so I'm not exactly flush with cash at the moment...still, that's what credit cards are for.

I will be taking notes all weekend and in NATFKA's continued absence I'll see if I can get some juicy gossip for my followers, all thirty-something of you.

If there is anything you want me to keep an eye out for, please drop me a message or send me a tweet using @Calthburns or #CBHHW
