GW Annouces Warhammer Fest




GW just annouced a new event.

Saturday 11th & Sunday 12th October 2014
Ricoh Arena, Coventry, UK

Warhammer Fest is a celebration of everything about the worlds of Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000; the miniatures, the backgrounds, the stories and the games. Whatever you love about the hobby, you’ll be spoilt for choice at Games Workshop’s largest event of 2014.

At Warhammer Fest you’ll encounter fantastic miniatures displays, seminars by our design teams, in-depth hobby demonstrations and inspiring Design Studio displays.

You’ll also be able to pick up the latest releases from Games Workshop, Forge World and Black Library, including many items available for the first time over the weekend, along with exclusive event only merchandise. With such a wide range of activities, you can plan your day around specific elements, or just enjoy whatever grabs your attention.



Things to See and Do

Demo Pods, Talks and Demonstrations

A brand new feature for our events! Demo Pods are dedicated areas spread throughout the venue, each with a busy schedule of diverse activities, talks and demonstrations. The limited number of places set aside for each means you can get the most out of the experience, so why not plan your day around a specific feature, such as painting demonstrations or gaming tactics, or enjoy a series of presentations covering a range of subjects.

Seminars

Focusing on specific topics with panels of experts, our seminars are always popular. So popular that we’ll be running more at Warhammer Fest than at any previous event! To give you as much opportunity to go to the seminars as possible, we’ll be repeating certain ones each day, so you can choose to attend them when it best suits your plans.

Design Teams

Black Library, Forge World and the Games Workshop Design Studios will all have areas at Warhammer Fest so you can meet the dedicated teams that bring to life the worlds we all love. This is your chance to chat with them and ask any burning questions about Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000, as well as seeing their work up close and personal.

Golden Demon (Sunday 12th Oct only)
On Sunday, Warhammer Fest will be hosting the 2014 Golden Demon Miniatures Painting Competition, the calendar highlight for miniatures painters throughout the world. If you want to compete and showcase your painting skills, or be a spectator to this extravaganza of miniatures, then make sure you get a Sunday ticket fast!

Archives
The miniatures we love today have a rich history behind them, so dig into the Games Workshop Archives with us to see how they’ve developed over the years. We’ll have a variety of displays on show so you can get nostalgic over classic miniatures, art and publications, and debate with your mates about your old favourites.

Things to take Home


Forge World

Visit the popular Forge World sales area for pre-release items, including a brand new book and new models not on release anywhere else yet; more details will be revealed nearer the event. Over the weekend you can also buy from Forge World’s vast range of models and books as well as event only miniatures, t-shirts, hoodies, bags and mugs.

Black Library

Death and Defiance is a brand new Horus Heresy book, on sale at Warhammer Fest for the first time anywhere in the world. This anthology collects together five stories set across the battlefields of the Horus Heresy, and includes brand new fiction from Aaron Dembski-Bowden, Nick Kyme, James Swallow, Andy Smillie and Guy Haley. Pick up Death and Defiance at the event and you can also take the opportunity to get your copy signed by all five authors, and the cover artist Neil Roberts. As well as that, there will be a range of pre-release titles, event exclusive art prints and more to buy too.

Citadel

You’ll have access to the Games Workshop range at Warhammer Fest, enabling you to add the latest Citadel miniatures, books and other products to your collections.

Art Prints
Admire a gallery of art prints celebrating the stunning visual work of our design teams, with artwork showing detail beyond what you see in our publications. And if there’s something you really like, you’ll be able to buy exclusive prints of many of the pieces over the weekend.

Looks like Games Day, sounds like Games Day,
But it's not Games Day because they are a 'miniature company'

Quite the corporate push on the not a game company thing it seems.

I guess they changed the name after all the flack they got for Games Day not actually having any games taking place.
