Durban hosted it’s first gaming convention in a while over the weekend of 10-12 April 2015.
We had an absolute blast and will definitely be back next year.
Thanks to all the gamers and exhibitors that came down from Joburg and up from Cape Town to support it!
But exhibitor stands are boring. The gaming tables were awesome though.

The container docks table was a highlight of the tournament. Apart from featuring plenty of examples of our shipping container range, it also featured a container ship AND an escort destroyer. The destroyer had three basilisks on it, each of which could be fired once per game.
The Necron table represented the surface of a world totally given over to a data matrix and featured an example of every single item in our Cyborg range
The “Infinity” table represented something unfamiliar to most 40k players: unruined buildings. It had all our Futurehab range on it
The art deco ruins table was a big favourite with all the players, being dominated by a huge skyscraper that had special rules attached to it. This used multiple versions of our art deco ruins
The ork table used all of our existing Orc range as well as our soon-to-be-released orc fort.

Unfortunately I did not get to photograph all the models – only these four. Still – they are stunning.
