Hairy Ray Enterprises

I will be bringing along a whole bunch of stuff that may be of interest – old CCG’s (Star Wars, Star Trek, Rage!, Battletech and many others), books, comics, kits and bitz.

As someone who has been collecting gaming stuff and associated materials for nearly 40 years, I can guarantee you that there will be stuff on my table older than many of you!

But STILL cool.

Hope to see you there and if you want to pm me with any enquiries about things you want, that’s fine as I can then make sure it’s there on the day.

Hairy Ray Enterprises – ah, go on. You want to. You know you do.

Untitled Orphan Black fanzine

And then there were two…

SCGC regret to announce that, due to personal circumstances and other commitments, Dark Blade Creations have had to withdraw from the organisation of the event. 

Don’t worry though, their withdrawal won’t affect the running of the Convention, it’s still going ahead as planned on Saturday 28th May.

We’re very sad to see the guys at DBC go, as their input was invaluable in getting SCGC up and running this year, and we wish them all the best at the UK Games Expo and beyond.

Fingers crossed that the stars will align correctly next year and they’ll be able to jump back on board.

Richard Harris Miniature Painting

Richard says” I started playing with and painting Games Workshop miniatures in 1997. My first commission came a year or two later when I painted a school friend’s Dwarf army for £5 per regiment. I later got a Saturday job at Cyberdyne in Stroud demonstrating games and I became a store painter. This drove me to improve my painting. I slowly found that I was gaming less and buying miniatures just to paint. I have made the final cut at Golden Demon five times. Most recently I have picked up some commercial work and I have begun sculpting my own miniatures.”

Megaera’s Realm

 

Megaera’s Realm was started as a way to market my fantasy and horror books, by using the cover images in pendants and bracelets. It expanded to pay homage to a range of films and books, including Alice in Wonderland, Watership Down, Labyrinth and Dawn of the Dead, as well as a range of steampunk, fantasy, mythology and macabre pieces. Everything is handmade and a few pieces are one of a kind.
