Last time i was there was 3 years ago (It conflicts with the Fantasy South Coast GT, and i'd been particularly active on the fantasy tournament scene over the last 2 years) and i'd agree that compared to then there did seem to be quite a bit more space in there.
Sadly didn't spot that many folks, mainly due to the game we were running being rather time consuming, with just a few dashes out to go buy stuff. Still, Did see Chris and Dave there and Chris' new 'Punishment of the Dice Gods' book is very good
One thing that did surprise me though was that last time the main craziness was around the Forgeworld stand, while this time the busiest overall (when i did get off our table) seemed to be the Gripping Beast stand. How times change!
Games wise, a lot seemed pretty quiet as well - although again i only have the ones near us to really go by that much on, and they were rather sad looking naval combat games which no-one seemed to want to play. Happily ours was pretty rammed, but that did mean it was a pretty knackering day!
