Community member @deadave has headed up to Nottingham for the Forge World Open Day! He will be dashing around grabbing pictures of all the awesome models and seeing what tasty morsels he can get out of the designers there too!

Of course there is more to the event than just the new models so keep an eye out for some cool stuff.

Will you be there? If so, say hello to deaddave.

Blogging At This Event:

The New and Improved Warhammer World!

Attending my first Forge World open day at the recently refitted Warhammer World! Has a swanky new entrance and reception area. Also new are the individual stores for Black Library and Forge World.

And now the much vaunted Forge World Studio area! Where you have access to the sculptors, digital artists, writers and all the other people that bring Forge World to life. Also at this event, early access and sneak peeks of upcoming miniatures (more on this later).

Here's some pictures from first of the new exhibition halls at the newly revamped Warhammer World. There is so much on display this is only a fraction of what's to view!

Exhibition Hall One

The Black Library Store

No Comments

The new Black Library store is looking pretty snazzy, with an extensive selection of books and even a store exclusive book (which has annoyingly sold out!).

Upcoming tank, the Mastodon!

One of the main attractions of the FW open day is the previews of work in progress miniatures, here we have the legion heavy transport, the Mastodon, what a beast!

Here's the second of the exhibition halls, again, this is a small selection of how much is on display, but I'm trying to get a varied selection.

Time for a spot of lunch, for those who have never been, this is the awesome Bugmans Bar! Does some epic grub.

Perturabo!

Here we have the father of the Iron Warriors. It's an absolutely cracking miniature. Love the sculpt on the face, and I'm totally in love with the ammo belts feeding the rather awesome looking gauntlet mounted guns!

For the first time, you can now pick up FW items off the shelf, this is good for locals in Nottingham, but unfortunately for me, I'll still be buying online or at events!

last time I was there I got a Migraine which completely sucked, i don’t think my eyes liked the lights in the FW store.

The additions to Warhammer World are absolutely brilliant and are well worth a visit.
