Hey Lupercal

Sounds pretty interesting though somewhere near London is bit too far for me and i probably won't have any spare cash for 2-way train fare to watford since i'm struggling to get enough cash for a Warmachine/hordes tournament list in Manchester on the 17th. Having to sell quite a few models as well including £101 of WHFB Dark Elves for £40 bounce
Is anyone else going?
