US Game Day 2011 – Black Library Q&A

Well howdy folks, I’ve got plenty to show you today. This past weekend was Games Workshop’s US Games Day. :) While i did record a few other videos, the one i wanted to upload was the Black Library Q&A session in the late morning of that Saturday. The only video of the session was taken by me, so you can’t find this anywhere else. :) Please enjoy, i will include the show notes for your convenience.
