Warhammer World Open Day: Offizielle Bilder
Games Workshop haben weitere Bilder zum Open Day nachgereicht.
Warhammer World’s regular Open Days are a great excuse (as if any were needed) to visit the home of Warhammer in Nottingham.
Yesterday was one such occasion as hundreds of eager hobbyists roused themselves from a New Year stupor to make the pilgrimage. But for those of you who couldn’t make it, here are a few of the highlights:
One of the best bits about these events is the chance to meet the people behind the miniatures and books that make the hobby what it is. The Citadel Army and Battlefield Painters, for example, were showing off a few techniques and some of their personal collections (some of which we hope to bring you in the future). Also in attendance was Simon Grant, one of the writing team behind the new Gathering Storm. He was eagerly explaining to everyone that Saint Celestine is a combat monster who can carve a Helbrute in half. (We’ll maybe put that to the test in a future Warhammer Live game…)
For White Dwarf, 2017 represents a mighty 40th birthday (meanwhile Warhammer 40,000, celebrating it’s 30th birthday is a mere spring-cockatrice by comparison).
There were a few examples of the miniature making process on show too. Here are a couple of the stages the Tau Empire XV95 Ghostkeel Battlesuit went through on it’s way to becoming the iconic miniature we see on Warhammer 40,000 battlefields today.
There was plenty on display from Forge World.
We saw some incredible new Legio Custodes vehicles and Dreadnoughts, new warriors of Middle-earth and an enormous Chaos Dragon.
Blood Bowl, still just a few short months old, is already set to receive a raft of miniatures in the form of star players, ogres and a new Dwarf Team, including the triumphant return of the questionably legal Deathroller.
All in, it was a great day.
Warhammer World hold similar events regularly, so keep an eye out for news of more like this. There’s also Warhammer Fest, our annual convention on its way in Coventry this May.
For those of you who live in the States, we realise it might not be practical to get to Nottingham, so we’re coming to you! Some of our studio staff will be attending the AdeptiCon event near Chicago in March this year, along with Warhammer TV and Forge World, so be sure to stop in and say ‘Hi’.
Bei der Gelegenheit können wir gleich noch die News zum erweiterten Speiseangebot bei Bugman’s unterbringen.
Bugman’s Bar have recently had the pleasure of feeding Bob Bifford, the well known Blood Bowl commentator, while he’s been promoting Blitzer’s Best. As none of our ample meals measured up to his very healthy appetite, the kitchen-slaves put in a huge effort and created the Ogre Burger and Ogre Breakfast in his honour.*
Now both available on Bugman’s menu, Bob is so amused at the idea of a mere human brave enough to wade into an Ogre Burger, that anyone who finishes the whole Ogre Burger Challenge meal will get a certificate signed by him!
There’s no certificate for finishing the Ogre Breakfast, because Bob thinks that with all the veg on it, it’s not really a challenge. (Mushrooms, Baked Beans, Eggs. No, we’re not willing to correct an Ogre on what eggs are.)
* Their exact words were “This shouldn’t kill ‘im, on our honour. Mind if we ‘ave the rest of the day off?… er, no reason.”
