Everyone in this picture is a long-standing KM forum member! Alex_Smith the dungeoneer, and clockwise from top left we have JamesA, Pooka, Mashibinbin...and doing that weird hand thing at the bottom left is yours truly. :)

It's slightly deceptive in that despite how it looks, we're all actually just frozen in a pretend "frantic guiding" pose, the screen/blade was completely still and Alex was just leaning to the left to give the impression of movement, but it makes a fun pic all the same and it feels very awesome (or should I say epic) indeed to see it on that page. Excellent article!

If you wanted it to look like classic Knightmare, one of you should really have been pointing a pencil thoughtfully at the screen as you froze. :D
Funny pic, though - it's like the perfect illustration of how NOT to guide someone in the Corridor of Blades!

The article was posted on my news feed on Sunday morning, and it was great to see another press photographer present on the dsy :)

Oh yes! I can't believe that out of all the teams that played that day, we happened to be playing when the photographer turned up! And thanks so much for poaching me from the earlier time slot to be on your team :)

Yes me too apparently, according to Lord Fear anyway...

I'm still so freaking PROUD of this whole convention and being a part of such an amazing fandom, these articles and photos just make me want to hug you all yet again.

Love that photo, it's like you're all so mad at poor Alex for getting sliced!

Lol, it does, doesn't it?
