Back from the pilgrimage – A few photos from BOYL ’14

Hey folks. Claus and I went to this year’s BOYL in Stoke on Trent and what a trip! It was absolutely great to see all the oldhammerers again and be a witness to all the creativity unleashed during the weekend. I managed to get a few games played, had time to follow even more games, buy some old Citadel lead and loads of Foundry minis, drink a lot of pints and get a tour by the man himself in the Ansell mansion of Stoke Hall and see Bryan’s enormous cabinets of vintage gold. Wow.

A hilarious moment was when a small group of us found ourselves kneeling in almost religious reverence, studying Ivan Bartlett’s classic ‘chalice diorama’ in first person. The very idea of actually seeing this stuff in real life is mind boggling and my 15-year old self would probably laugh in disbelief if told that this would one day happen.

The photos you see here are more or less random shots I took when I remembered that I had a camera with me. So much was going on and I only captured a small part of it. Would I come back next year? If possible without a doubt.

Cheers to all the participants!
