Our friends at Games Workshop are hard at work preparing for Games Day 2011, the premier hobby gaming convention in the United Kingdom! If you’re going to be near the Birmingham NEC LG Arena, stop by and experience this ultimate celebration of gaming. Check out the details from GW’s website:
Games Day is the ultimate celebration of our hobby; a day to meet up with old friends and a chance to bump into a few of the famous faces from around the Studio and the creators of your favourite Citadel miniatures, books and games. Hobbyists travel from across the world and each year's show features a multitude of participation games that you can dive into and take part in; from quick-play skirmishes to full-on grand battles, and all the miniatures are provided. All you have to do is turn up and play.
Games Day is also home to Golden Demon, the most prestigious miniatures painting competition in the world. Every year, thousands take part in the hope of winning one of the prized Golden Demon trophies, and for the ultimate winner, the Slayer Sword. But for those of us who can only aspire to paint to the level of Golden Demon, it is a fabulous opportunity to see some of the finest examples of converted and painted Citadel miniatures anywhere in the world.
Come see us
And once again, Games Workshop will be hosting the FFG demo team as we offer demos of Blood Bowl: Team Manager – The Card Game, Space Hulk: Death Angel – The Card Game, Chaos in the Old World, and Warhammer: Invasion The Card Game. We will also have a limited quantity of the highly anticipated Black Crusade and Blood Bowl: Team Manager – The Card Game for sale. Stop by to check out these exciting games, chat with us about our latest titles, or pick up a few of your favorites!
This excited event has proven so popular that tickets have sold out, but if you’re among the lucky attendees, stop by and see us!
Couldn't they have given us more than 5 days notice?
Wow... if I had heard about this in advance I might even be able to attend it. Oh well I shall just endeavour to get a couple dozen of my friends together to play Space Hulk, and go through Chains of Torment again since Black Crusade isn't out yet.
Does anyone please have any information regarding which Warhammer Invasion packs will be available on the day? Specifically, will any of the Capital Cycle be available?
Shame it's such short notice.
I'll be there, probably hanging around the FFG and Focus (Blood Bowl) stands!
