Last year was the first time I attended Vapnartak in York and I was glad to go back. The atmosphere was good and as with a lot of these events, there was plenty of inspiration to be had too. What I like about this event is that it is not limited to ‘just’ Games Workshop. There is a wide range of scales, miniatures and scenery to look at and buy!
There were games to demo, and although I am far too scared to do such things, everyone was really nice.
In the end, I bought a lot of bits for scenery and basing. I picked up a leaf cutter which will make my swamp bases look ever more swampier and some UV resin water effect stuff which is supposed to instantly dry when blasted with a special torch – more of that when I get to trying it out.
There seemed to be a lot less people this year as well, which I found better. Not once did I end up with my nose in some nerd’s stinky armpit, which is a blessing. All in all. It was worth a visit to get ideas and see cool new games.
