So Sunday morning Team Coventry (Allan Powell & I) headed off to Abingdon in deepest darkest Oxfordshire with an ex-alumnus of Abingdon Games Club, Rob Alderman of PRODOS to run some demos and generate more interest in PRODOS’s fantastic game Warzone Resurrection.
It was a long day, a hard day but all in all I feel a very successful day. There were a steady stream of visitors through the shows doors from 10-00am (opening) to roughly 3-00pm when the show started to quieten down. The stall had a lot of visitors and people looking for demo games and Allan & I duly obliged.
I came away with the Cybertronic Mega deck and some new dice for demos.
I think all in all we ran 6 demos to new players of various ages and levels of experience. A great day and we would definitiely do it again!
Same time next year chaps?
Lessons learnt as follows:-
Rob Alderman has an unhealthy addiction to jaffa cakes
when asking a younger player to roll small you mean numbers not how far the dice rolls *LOL*
children with a will to defeat their parents can miraculously pay very close attention, be very focussed and make amazing rolls!
for some reason I am considered a bit of an SME on Cybertronic (maybe I buy too much?)
I need to make so much more terrain than I currently own but not nearly as huge ideas as my current plans
There is always room for more dice!
I love demoing!
The demo table. Dark Legion vs Imperials.
The PRODOS stall.
A display case full of WZR minis. Top to bottom – Bauhaus, Brotherhood, Cybertronic and Capitol.
A display case full of WZR minis. Top to bottom – Dark Legion, Mishima then Imperial.
The PRODOS stock. I think we only left with 3 starter boxes in the end.

The crowd gathers. The little lad in the front then had a demo and won resoundingly.
Some Imperial trenchers in a crater fire upon Dark Legion Undead Legionnaires.
A wounded Razide emerges from the crater to attack the Imperial Trenchers holding the left flank.
A WZR game in all its demoing glory.
The game in progress as Rob sells on the stall.
Deep in thought pondering his next actions
“Fire, Fire Fire!” orders Brigadier Rist to the Trenchers as they open up on Alakhai, the Warlord from Dark Legion
