Mission: Games Workshop - Brighton

So, I was down in sunny Brighton this weekend for FantasyCon 2011 and on the Saturday (after socialising into the early hours with old friends and new at the con) I headed into town for some fresh salt-sea air and to make sure I didn't come away from a couple of days at the seaside having only seen the inside of the Royal Albion Hotel.

Hence, employing some unerring sixth sense I appear to possess, I came at last to that refuges of buccaneers, brigands and bootleggers that is Brighton's GW store. And it was packed to the rafters with corsairs, swashbucklers and all manner of ne'er-do-wells, for it was on this day that the good ship Dreadfleet was launched...

Anyway, enough of that - it's not International Talk Like a Pirate Day!

To cut a long story short, key-timer Jenny Northeast - a fearsome wench with a compass direction for a surname - persuaded me to buy a copy of Dreadfleet when I'd only gone in to pick up the new Tomb Kings army book (research for another new secret project). But then being a salty old sea-dog myself, I've always found a pretty smile and a couple of loaded cannon highly persuasive.
