I didn't need to worry. Primarily the event is for collectors of military action figures and other military collectibles (although this year they had a large Airsoft attendance too), and everyone seemed over the moon to see Osprey there in force. In fact, I nipped out of the convention centre to try and grab some lunch at one point, and was stopped by someone just walking down the road who had spotted my Osprey shirt and confessed to being a huge fan!
It was great to meet up with a different group of Osprey readers...chat to them, pick up on their likes / dislikes and hear their suggestions. In fact, we also bumped into Gene - a prospective Osprey author and regular visitor to the blog, who had prepared a MASSIVE list of title suggestions, which our commissioning editors are poring over as I write this....thanks Gene!
As ever, we always look forward to meeting with any of our readers, and just so you know, this year Osprey will have a stand at Military Odyssey (23rd, 24th and 25th August) and at Euro Militaire (21st and 22nd September). Our stands at both events are in exactly the same place as last year - and we may have a very special guest appearance at our stand in Folkestone...so keep an eye out for more details here at the Osprey blog!
Here are a few photos of A weekend of Heroes...enjoy!
