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.

Baltimore Games Day 2010 – Free ticket!

A member of Heresy-Online is giving away a ticket to the Baltimore Games Day & Golden Demon 2010.  Its legit, and were i not in such dire financial straits, i would have traveled out there myself (i live in Chicago)!  Its a great way to meet a bunch of your favorite Black Library authors and get some books signed.  I’ll be there next year for sure.  I’ve posted the link below.
