As an update, the organisers are fine with us doing an ad like that with a game picture and logo, so we're at least not wasting time barking up the wrong tree.
S.Sgt Silva Birgen: "Good evening, we're here from the Adeptus Defenestratus."
Captain L. Rollin: "Nonsense. Never heard of it."
Birgen: "Pick a window. I'll demonstrate".

No-one has loudly complained about that image, and no-one has thrust me a particularly good image to use, so I'm assuming we're going ahead with that one.

Here's four variants of me trying to layer the logo in - tell me which you think is best.

The final one for me.

I'd hoped for a bit more feedback, but I've already dawdled over this too long, so unless I hear any resounding complaints by the middle of tomorrow (Tuesday, for clarity), I'll be going with Van Helser's vote and running the last of those.

I second the Van Helser vote.
Just beginning to wish I had a better camera, and more Inquisitor games under my belt with better scenery/photographs.

Of the options I'd agree that the last is the best.

To remind anyone who's forgotten, don't forget to buy your tickets for this event!

Based on the list of people I'm expecting and the latest sales numbers from the GT organisers, it seems like not everyone has remembered!

~~~~~

Also, unfortunately, I have to set a final deadline of 31st March 23:59 BST to hear from enough 28mm players to be able to expand the event.
More players will be able to sign up after this if it goes ahead, but if I haven't got a bare minimum by then, I won't have a safe 28mm event, won't have time to plan and will have to only go ahead with 54mm scale.

It feels wrong to be going to such a large show and not showcasing everything that Inquisitor can be, so if you're reading this as a 28mm player and would be interested in attending, please comment below and help bring 28mm to the London GT.

Totalling up all the responses I had across sites at the deadline, unfortunately I haven't got enough to add 28mm to the event.

After throwing out the "yes" responses on the Facebook poll that seem to be people not particularly reading the poll (such as people in the US), adding in answers I've had elsewhere and doing my best to make sure I'm not counting anyone twice, the numbers are just too few for me to be sure of a safe event.
 
The problem is that the majority of my answers are from FB, but my previous experience with FB is that player take-up is not at all reliable (particularly when I've only got a "tick yes" answer rather than someone actually engaging with comments). If I'd had the same number of responses but they were all from The Conclave or Ammobunker, I'd be going ahead right now, but poor attendance would cause a massive headache when I've got two scales to deal with, so there's just not enough to open ticket sales to 28mm.

If the LGT invites us back next year, I'll try for dual scale again (as one of the problems seems to be that several major 28mm community members have other things on for that weekend and can't join us), but this year players are going to have to attend at 54mm.

(However, should anyone have both 54mm and 28mm collections, they are absolutely welcome to bring both - if enough people did that, then we might be able to run some of the games at 28mm, but people will need to assume we'll be primarily playing 54mm).

As the e-mail newsletter I've just sent around says, the "drop dead" date for sign-ups for the event is the end of April, as after this the LGT organisers need to start making final arrangements.

If you want to join us, and you've been procrastinating over it, you'll need your tickets before the start of May!
