Are there many BAF writers/artists still alive to ask? And are there any former Palitoy employees that can be contacted to have a Q&A session with?

I would definitely like to think those two would both go as they did run or do still run WildFur Productions on-line. I would love to see Geoff Senior who was cover artist on Action Force weekly and maybe Bryan Hitch who drew some of AF monthly (European Missions to those of you from the US). The only BAF writer I can think of who might be alive still is Gerry Finley-Day.

John Cooper is alive and well - he draws Armitage for the Judge Dredd Megazine.

Beats me where they are holding it, I know there is a youtube vid with a toy ravage going to a location, so if you know the area, you might recognise it.

In terms of Roll Call 2/ Roll Out 2, it'll be held at:

Town Hall
63 High Street
Fordingbridge
Hampshire
SP6 1AS

so start planning your trip already :)

Okay, tell me when the con' exclusive charas are designed for the custom classes, send me their designs and profiles, and get me a penciler and an inker.
That means: I volunteer to write the convention comic!
