We all know that Genoside has a problem with Games Workshop products...he frickin owns them all. I'm here to say that my name is Chad and I have Army Attention Deficit Disorder. (Hi Chad...) I will, however, refuse to speak my latest crazy idea out loud for fear that I might actually start working on it. I really need help.
He is only a plastic statue after all...or is he? In any event, with various GW gamesdays coming up, this is my public service announcement opportunity. Just say "No" when it comes to Games Days. Yes, the Golden Daemon stuff looks cool. Yes, they purpusely put that damn plexiglass at the perfect angle to prevent folks from touching the art...and ruining any pictures you try and take. Yes, the line to the forgeworld counter is too long and slow. No, there aren't any games worth playing. Yes, you get better deals on merchandise from any internet retailer or FLGS. Basically, for us, the drive is long, the cost is high, and the reward is severely lacking. If you have family in the area or if you're a fan of the host city, then have at it. Just consider GW's "Lame-Day" a temporary diversion to your regular trip. My recommendation? Independent conventions all the way.
This is for the three of you who may read this blog...I'm in the progress of updating the layout of the blog to a three column format and I lost all of my links and such to do so. Will rebuild as time permits.
