Mad Jock Games

Mad Jock Games was founded in 2011 with the help of the GamesLab knowledge transfer centre collaborating with the University of Wales Trinity Saint David. 
The studio is run by an angry Scotsman, a jaded Welshman and a drunk Englishman in a blatant attempt to get a grant; the members of the team have however previously been involved with Bafta Cymru nominated and winning projects.
You’re Doomed represents the studio’s first self-published and internal project.

Deadstar Publishing

Six years ago Deadstar Publishing was launched with the intention of showcasing new talent by publishing books, comics and graphic novels with a focus on horror, science fiction and fantasy. We wanted to help creators get noticed and started with Rising Stars volume 1 – alumni from which have gone on to make comics their full time career. Our current flagship titles are Dexter’s Half Dozen (nominated in 2014 for a Stan Lee True Believers Award) and our family friendly Dolphin Squad graphic novel.

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.”

Everything is handmade and a few pieces are one of a kind.
