What’s that, you haven’t heard about Warhammer Fest yet? You clearly need to visit this page more often…
Warhammer Fest is the biggest event of the Games Workshop calendar. Taking place at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry on Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th October, it’s a celebration of everything Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000. You can find out more about the event here and purchase tickets using the links to the right – red ones for Saturday, green ones for Sunday.
But what, I hear you cry, will Forge World and Black Library be up to at Warhammer Fest?
A team of Black Library authors will be there over the weekend. While some of them will be busy chairing seminars, others will be on hand to sign your favourite books and chat about their latest works. Andy Smillie, Guy Hayley, Nick Kyme and James Swallow are all attending, as is cover artist Neil Roberts.
The Black Library team will also be bringing exclusive merchandise with them, including T-shirts, posters, art prints, an event exclusive novel (Sedition’s Gate) and the brand new Horus Heresy anthology Death and Defiance.
The Forge World design team will also be at Warhammer Fest to talk about their latest projects. Matt Murphy-Kane, Mark Bedford, Keith Robertson and Phil Stutcinskas will be running demo pods throughout the weekend showing you how to paint everything from dirt to zenithal highlights.
There will also be a truck-load (no exaggeration) of Forge World merchandise on sale, from T-shirts, hoodies and bags, to event-exclusive miniatures. Warhammer Fest will also be the first time you can pick up models from their new Solar Auxilia range, two of which can be seen above.
You can find out more about Warhammer Fest, including other events and activities taking place throughout the weekend, on the Warhammer World website.
