I managed to get there before he left, and he suggested a warmachine model for me to build to represent him when we're watching Vikes games at my local. Very nice guy, signed my football and a Vikings nutcracker that currently comes to all Vikes games with me. Met his brother Greg as well, and Jeff at the shop. All three went out of their way to help me, despite me having almost no knowledge of tabletop gaming. It was a long drive, but I'm so glad I went.
