Visit to Wayland Games for PRODOS Open Day

As many readers and followers will be aware yesterday Tris Taylor & I (The Hairy Gamers) went on a little roadtrip to Essex to visit the Wayland Games Centre in Hockley, Essex for a PRODOS Games Open Day.

It was a very early start…….6am as we set-off to do battle with the M1 and M25 on a Saturday morning.

Upon arrival we were greeted by Rob Alderman and Matthew Edgeworth promoing both the AvP:The Hunt Begins and Mutant Chronicles:Warzone Resurrection.  We had a look through the game contents although it was only a promo/prototype copy the quality was undeniably good.  The resin models had such sharp details even down to the bootlaces on the Colonial Marines and the images used for the board tiles were excellently rendered.  After many photos were taken a game was started.  Tris took control of the Xenomorphs (Aliens) against the Colonial Marines and Predators.

Following the game itself we wandered around the retail venue and gaming tables at Wayland Games.  I can heartily recommend anyone visit Wayland as the facilities are great and the range of products every bit as good as any FLGS you may be using.

Our VIP tickets got us a lunch and access to the Q&A session in the afternoon so we had a spot of lunch which was ok.  Then we headed upstairs to participate in the Q&A with Rob Alderman.  We took recordings of the videos linked below:-

After the Q&A we all ventured back downstairs for a second game of AvP.  This time I had command of the three Predator Warriors against the Xeno menace and Colonial Marines whilst Tris took pictures.

Once we’d finished we had a chat about all sorts with Matthew Edgeworth.  Some Star Wars:X-Wing chat, some Star Trek Attack Wing, other similar games in style to AvP which we can use scenery and ideas from for homebrew scenarios.

All in all it was a fantastic day, great guys at PRODOS, great guys and facilities at Wayland and it looks like a great supporterbase/community for AvP.  Im massively keen for the game now and cannot wait for my Kickstarter to drop.DSC00756 DSC00757 DSC00758 DSC00759 DSC00760 DSC00761 DSC00762 DSC00763 DSC00764 DSC00765 DSC00766 DSC00767 DSC00768 DSC00769 DSC00770 DSC00771 DSC00772 DSC00773 DSC00774 SDC10654 SDC10655 SDC10656 SDC10657 SDC10658 SDC10659 SDC10660 SDC10661 SDC10662 SDC10663 SDC10664 SDC10665 SDC10666 SDC10667 SDC10668 SDC10669 SDC10670 SDC10671 SDC10672 SDC10673 SDC10675 SDC10676 SDC10677 SDC10678 SDC10679 SDC10681 SDC10682 SDC10683 SDC10684 SDC10686 SDC10687 SDC10688 SDC10689 SDC10690 SDC10691 SDC10692 SDC10693 SDC10695 SDC10697 SDC10703 SDC10704 SDC10705 SDC10706 SDC10708 SDC10709 SDC10710 SDC10711 SDC10714 SDC10716 SDC10717 SDC10718 SDC10719 SDC10720 SDC10721 SDC10722
