|Always so much to discover on the Spiel convention...|
Under the sign of our upcoming Ancient Imagi-Nation project I visited the Warlord Games booth to buy one of their excellent Celt Warriors boxed sets and a can Army Painter Quick Shade. Now I've got everything that I need to start a small Celtic army. As a stand-alone army or perhaps as allies for greater Carthaginian, Roman or Greek army?

Later I went to the Prodos Games booth and discovered a prototype of their upcoming Aliens vs. Predator boardgame. The announcement of this game was actually the reason why I stopped my own Aliens vs. Predator project. I wanted to wait for the new miniatures. And what I saw looked very promising. The Prodos Games miniatures are superb and the gaming material of the boardgame also looked very good. Hopefully the rules will have the same quality.
|Aliens vs. Predator: The Hunt Begins looks very promising.|
I was very happy to get the new Tactics and Strategy Guide for Memoir'44, one of my all-time favourite boardgames. It only took two days to read the more than 500 pages of this excellent written book. I can highly recommend it. If you are interested in Memoir'44 or other Command & Colors games don't hesitate to get a copy.
Bettina took many pictures. Andi and Krüger couldn't resist to buy a big plastic bag full of cheap boardgames each. And I got everything I was looking for. At the end everybody was happy. See you again on next years' Spiel in Essen.
