It started as a rumble and is turning into into a roar as the date for Salute 2012 approaches. On Saturday, thousands of gamers and miniature painters will assemble at ExCel, London to feed the inner hunger that can only be satisfied by one thing--buying figures, paints, varnishes, bases, and anything else associated with gaming and painting.
For those who don't know, Salute is a convention where vendors from all over the world come to sell their products, where demo games are played and where gamers and painters can meet and come to know each other. For those of you who don't know what Salute is, just imagine a convention where Gucci, Ferragamo and Prada all came together under one roof and have the best deals of the year.
The excitement on the blogoshphere is palpable and I wish I could go with you guys, but since I can't I thought I'd give you a little advice before Saturday.
Whatever you do, DON'T tell your wife or girlfriend how much you really bought at the convention.
Make sure you come back with some of this in your pocket, because if you don't.....
You won't be doing any of this, for a while.
And what will I be doing while you guys are having the time of your lives at Salute? Well, I'll be mowing the lawn (a thinly veiled attempt to make you all feel guilty). Have a wonderful time at Salute 2012!!!
