Warhammer World

Again as part of Euro Assault 2009, I was fortunate enough to be able to visit "Warhammer World" in Nottingham. WW is the worldwide public headquarters of Games Workshop and somewhat of a mecca for people like me who are long time Warhammer/Warhammer 40K/Lord of the Rings/Epic/Warmaster/Necromunda/Mordheim etc etc fans. As much as I love to hate GW for their asinine business practices I really wanted to go to Warhammer World. So here are some pictures and a brief report on WW itself.

The place itself was easy to find in a light industrial section of Nottingham and consists of several discrete areas. There is a spacious playing area with excellent terrain, Bugman's Bar and restaurant, the Citadel museum display upstairs, and of course an amply-stocked retail facility with Warhammer, 40K, and LotR stuff.

The quality of some of the terrain tables was amazing - you would recognize some of these from reports in the White Dwarf.
Loads of fantastic figures in the cases at the Citadel Museum.
Had to take some photos of the Studio Chaos Dwarf army from the '90s - "Big Hats" were my first Warhammer army!
Directions to the retail store are clearly marked... just as you'd expect ;-)
Highly recommended for Warhammer fans!
