Games Day 2010

So I had a great time attending Games Day in Baltimore this year. Thanks to all the staffers from Games Workshop and Black Library who worked so hard to put this frankly insane event together. Lots of shouting, crazy costumes, and people running around dragging tape measures and screaming "CANNONBALL!!". (If you play Warhammer you'll get the reference.)

Some highlights from the event, with quality cell phone camera illustrations:


The crowd standing in line to register for the event. Point of clarification: You have to buy your ticket, then you have to register, then you can go inside. The guy in front of me didn't find this out until he'd already made it through this line once. Learn from his mistakes!


The best costume I saw all day. Actually there were a lot of high-quality costumes this year, and I'm very hopeful that Games Workshop will post up equally high-quality photographs in a few weeks.


An Eldar helmet and pistol at life-size scale (or close to it). I'm consistently amazed by the amount of effort the Games Workshop guys put into this stuff. I also freely admit that I would have walked off with this case if I thought I could get away with it.


Some of the models behind the big event! I don't know who Matthieu Fontaine is, but he's a hell of a painter/sculptor.


A Titan-scale Ultramarine, brought in to promote the upcoming Ultramarines movie. I'm trying to keep my expectations low for this, but they've got Terence Stamp doing voice work. How can you not expect awesomeness?


As promotional items go, nothing beats a free hat. This came courtesy of Relic Entertainment, the minds behind all of the recent Warhammer/Warhammer 40,000 video games. If anything's ever going to get me back into MMORPGs, Dark Millennium is it.


A shot of Dan Abnett during the second Black Library seminar. Mr. Abnett read an extract from his upcoming book Prospero Burns (you will want to buy that), answered a bunch of questions from the audience (did you like Eisenhorn? Ravenor? Then you can start hoping for more to come), and generally charmed the hell out of everybody.

The first seminar (which I failed to photograph properly) was four authors for one, with Gav Thorpe, C.L. Werner, Mike Lee, and Nathan Long all reading excerpts from their upcoming novels. They also took audience questions, and I actually got autographs from Mr. Thorpe and Mr. Werner (both of whom I heartily apologize to if I came off as an ass).


Last but not least, the loot! Games Days are a great way to grab some books (and miniatures) that aren't out in stores or on Amazon just yet. I was a little disappointed that I couldn't get my hands on The First Heretic (I looked at the previews for the UK Games Day by mistake), but I think I've got enough here to get me maybe halfway through the wait.

If I don't burn through the whole pile in a week. Which let's be honest, I might do.

Perlelux Hence, they are actually made up of regular soaps, composed of sodium salts of fatty acids, to which surfactants have been added. The resulting pH lies somewhere between the two types of soaps, according to the amount of surfactants added. Are Surfactants in Soaps and Shampoos Hazardous to Health? Sodium lauryl sulfate and sodium laureth sulfate are surfactants contained in a range of cosmetic products, mainly liquid soaps and shampoos. Since the 1990s, an increasing number of publications has started to appear in the Internet, warning of the risk of exposure to these substances. Consequently, the Cosmetic Ingredient review Expert Panel, the U.S. cosmetic industry's independent body of experts for the safety of cosmetic ingredients, has examined this issue. The panel concluded that these substances are safe for use in low concentrations, intended for cleaning skin and hair, and when washed out shortly after being applied. However, similar to the effect of other surfactants, these substances may irritate the skin and eyes of some people.

Thermo Burn said...

In one study, undertaken in 2001, six women who were classified as being overweight took 25 mg of 10% standardized Thermo Burn Weight Loss in capsule form. The capsules were taken two times a day for eight weeks, and their progress was closely monitored. After the trial had ended, these women had lost an average of ten pounds and reduced their body fat by nearly 8% – a significant difference from when they started the study.

Another study, undertaken in 2005, saw 30 men who were classified as overweight or obese. The men took either 250 mg of the extract, or a placebo, twice a day for 12 weeks. This study showed similar results to the one undertaken four years previously, and the men who took the extract showed significant changes in the composition of their body when compared with the placebo group. A decrease in fat mass and body fat was reported, as well as an increase in lean body mass. Other changes were shown in the obese men, ranging from an increase in serum free testosterone levels, and an increase in bone mass.
