The Games Day season has started and it's time for our hobbyists down under to get excited. If you're in Australia or New Zealand, make sure you head down to your nearest Hobby Centre this weekend to get your hands on tickets for Games Day Australia 2012, and check out the in-store posters containing the guest list for the day.
Australian Games Day will be on September 9th, 2012, from 10:00am to 4:00pm at the Australian Technology Park, Redfern, NSW. Tickets will be available from Australian and New Zealand Games Workshop Hobby Centres and, of course, on www.games-workshop.com.
The available floor space has been expanded, so this is physically an even bigger show than last year. There's a huge 'Intense Gaming area', Golden Demon, Armies on Parade, authors from Black Library, guest seminars, the crew from Forge World, and a massive store zone. There's even a banner competition. The exclusive Games Day Blood Angels Captain will be available at the venue, and is included in the price of entry. It promises to be an incredible event.
To get you in the mood, here are a few highlights from last year's Golden Demon and Armies on Parade. The Diorama was painted by Aidan Runagall-McNaull; the Warhammer 40,000 Large Monster was painted by Kyle Morgan; the Warhammer Monster was painted by Greg Lovegrove; and the stunning Ork army that won Armies on Parade was built by Dave Wright (you can see an expanded feature on that here).
