Well CTA was the first convention that I'd been to in decades and I must say that I enjoyed it immensely. Everyone was very friendly and the displays were fun. All the trade stands were full and the staff informative and helpful. Just some photos for you to look at.
A very good SCW set up. Unfortunately the chap's opponent 'cried off' that morning, but he just set it up for eye candy. Nice guy and chatty, just what you want when you march into the hall.
Ancient Greece was popular.

Another two cheerful chappies informed and willing to share their game with an inquisitive tyro with a camera.

Newbury & Reading Scale Modellers Club. My photos really don't display the skills and detail in this selection, many others were just too blurred.
Two traditional chaps. Drew up two Medieval Armies on either side of the table and slugged it out!
There were two participation SciFi games this one based loosely on 'Full Thrust'. I've never seen a space game before and it was spectacular in its simplicity.

The above are pictures from a trade stand, I'm not advertising these guys but the display featured our favourite characters, ZEDS. Saying that the resin based scenery was very well made and VERY reasonably priced. So much so I bought a couple of pieces. If you don't want to see their stand miss out the next pic.
