aha! good to hear from you dude, I'm not sure you'd recognize me in person, its been a while! (I sure as hell didn't recognize some of the people down at GW when I first went in. Infact, Lian didn't recognize me haha)

Yeah I'll talk to Lian about it. Me and Luke were talking about going to Total Wargamer, its only like half an hours drive so it could be good. Its a tough one. I am really disappointed with GW attitude at the moment. I can understand they're probably feeling pretty down (the staff members) but they're lack of enthusiasm will definitely put people off. That's one of the most important things that a GW staff member has to be is enthusiastic. When Dan (manager) used to run the store I can remeber, even though he wasn't the best of managers, he would always make everything about the hobby feel important.

Me and Luke wen't down the last 2 saturdays because they were running a two part tournament. I think we both did well (I won 5/6 games and drew the other, Luke Won like 4/6, but he was playing 250 points down in the last 3 games for fun) but we we both pretty disappointed because they didn't announce the results in store, they said they would do it over face book and they never did. With that and the downstairs area being shut and there being no gaming night any more it feels what has always been the core of the hobby, what gives the rules meaning and what motivates people to buy models and spent time painting them is certainly not what it used to be.

On the bright side I suppose its a perfect time to set up a gaming club with other people who feel the same.

I think birmingham is too far for me at the moment because I don't drive, but I'm taking my test soon and then (as long as insurance isn't a fortune... who am I kidding) I'll be a lot more mobile.

Add me on facebook if you like: Ben Walker and invite me to the page you were talking about.

Yeah, I can't actually remember the last time I took my army to GW to get a game... and then the only games I could get were 1k WFB or 2*1K doubles (we're all obsessed with the WFB doubles tournies).

Dan is still the manager: Lian is back, but only as a blue shirt. Both have kids and are married/engaged... so I'm guessing life is getting in the way more then it used to.
