I've got to paint roughly a quarter of my army on the train up to Manchester, could be a challenge!

Yeah, Mark and I were following them while playing guildball this afternoon! Looks like a really tight tournament!

Thanks to Dave and the BHGS for running another great tournament and to Glyn, Tim, Mike, Richard, Tom and Dave for 6 fun games.
Can't recommend Britcon enough to anybody thinking about it for next year

There is a good chance I'm on my own here but I would prefer Britcon to be a 3 game tournament, with fun stuff around it.

I really respect the current format - I just don't have the energy for an (admittedly very impressive and substantial) endurance event.

Two games on the Saturday and one on Sunday would increase attendance, as Friday and arguably also Monday would not need to be taken off work.

P.S. what a line-up - no easy games there!

We are guests of the BHGS at Britcon and it's their big event for the year.

Personally I doubt many more people would pay £50 to play three games over two days. And 'fun' events don't seem to interest many people, look at the campaign days and team events.

Personally Britcon remains my favorite event of the year. Only place were you get to play six games at four thousand points. Is it a bit of a slog, sure, but that's part of the appeal.

As ever ymmv.

Thanks for a great weekend guys :)

I like the current format - both in terms of the number and size of the games. It's my favourite tournament of the year too and I wouldn't want to travel all the way up to Manchester just for 3 games over two days.
