UK Games Expo 2013 (2)

This weekend (Saturday 25th – Sunday 26th May)ย  we were at the UK Games Expo 2013 in Birmingham. It was quite a large venue in the swanky Metropole and was packed out, especially on Saturday.

All quiet before the chaos begins.

It was a family crowd with an emphasis on independent board games and card games but still plenty of RPG and even some terrain such as Mantic‘s Deadzone and Warmill‘s rather nifty SF collection.

DLC layout looking good.

New line looking good as well.

We met a lot of nice people, made some important business type contacts and sold a good number of disks. It’s gratifying to know that our DLC range is still so popular although we were there to primarily whip up interest for our new line (and whip we did, a lot of Infinity players in particular got quite excited).

We sold the entire DLC catalogue on disk for a ludicrous ยฃ8 a pop (if you bought a disk but haven’t received a link for the Battle Bunker set please email us at info@battlesytems.co.uk).

Colin also got to show off a hush hush prototype he’s been working on which got a lot of approving noises. We were impressed with the event and will be back next year.

UK Games Expo 2013

We will be at the UK Games Expo 2013 in Birmingham this weekend, Saturday 25th May – Sunday 26th.

We’ll be selling our DLC line at 50% discount and we’ll have the prototype for our new line on display so come and have a look and a bit of an old chat.

Look out for our banner ๐Ÿ™‚

Even more more words and pictures

Our Facebook followers might have noticed that we’ve started using our new acrylic clips, phasing out the card prototypes. ย They’re amazing, much better then we could have hoped for, these clips really keep the whole thing together. Errant dogs, children or clumsy spouses bearing cups of tea aren’t shifting these babies. That guy who ‘accidently’ knocks the scenery when the game’s not going his way? He can suck it up ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s a few up to date pics to mull over.

If you can’t see the new clips then they’re doing their job ๐Ÿ™‚

I like to lurk behind cover and ambush people. But enough about my weekend.

If you’re not excited by this you must be pushing up daisies. My condolences.

I used to be happy with a single level. Battle Systems has ruined that for me ๐Ÿ˜›

Meanwhile, we’ve been making new prototypes of the stuff we’re going to offer as stretch goals and specials. We’ll be sneak peeking some of those in the next few weeks.

Here’s a vid showing a fly around animation so you can have a good boggle at the scenery. Nice, eh? Wondering how much it costs, I bet and whether you can blag to your other half how absolutely vital it is to have a set? Good on ya, mate. Battle Systems salutes you.

The figures shown come courtesy of the guys at Mantic Games and are painted by Rich at Sabre Minatures.ย  Also, thanks to Andy Slater for his tireless work in bringing our little plastic dreams to the masses.
