Last Saturday saw myself and Dave Luff (with my son Josh in tow) attend the Ex-illis intro day at the Totalwargamer shop in Blackminster, Evesham.
The shop is quite large, with space for several gaming tables and a hobby bench. It also sells refreshments, and even has it’s own toilet (a very important detail not to be overlooked for those all-day tournamnets).
The shop has quite a large selection of different games, including Games Workshop, Mantic, Ex Illis, Flames of War, Avatars of War, Spartan Games & Malifaux (plus several others) as well as a reasonable selection of boardgames and the ever-present Magic CCG.
It’s well lit, has plenty of space, and so is a very comfortable environment in which to spend a day gaming.
We had a great day gaming, although it has to said that the turnout for the event was somewhat disappointing.
However, those that came seemed interested and impressed with Ex-illis, which can’t be a bad thing, and simply the opportunity to help run an event like this was very well received on Dave & my part.
Special mention must be made of Leigh, who is, amongst other things, an avid listener of the podcast, who travelled down from (of all places) Coventry. If we’d have known, we could have given him a lift! It looks like we’ve now got a local opponent for the game…
Thanks once again to Paul and the crew at TotalWargamer for inviting us down – hopefully we can do something like this again in the near future.
