We had a good turnout early on for the X-Wing tournament.
The Arena Rex demo was quite popular.
The paint and take table.
Nick's self contained Broken Contract demo table is really cool.
I supplied the Bushido terrain, and Aaron ran some great demos.
Tim and Vandy are discussing the differences between Song of Blades and Heroes and Blood Bowl.
Anton showcased the finer points of Wreck-Age.
The Shadow War Armageddon table was eye catching.
Karl ran plenty of Runewars demos after performing with his band earlier in the day.
Greg set up a spectacular Frostgrave demo table.
