This is your spoiler alert. Warhammer World has a new exhibition hall which is best viewed not knowing what to expect. If you’re planning a trip don’t read this post. However if curiosity has got the better of you, check out over 80 photos after the jump!
You walk through the entrance and up the stairs and the first thing you enter is a Games Workshop store.
Black Library and Forgeworld get their own permanent stores!
Exclusive to the reopening weekend is the Design Studio area. Lots of people from Phil Kelly, Jes Goodwin, Matt Holland, Darren Latham, Alan Bligh, Darren Parwood, Mark Bedford and many many more were there to chat and answer your questions. I had really enjoyable chats with Phil Kelly and Jes Goodwin. Phil remembered me from Warhammer Fest (might have something to do with the Tale of Painters shirt I was wearing). Both Phil and Jes are my hobby idols and I’m so happy to have met them and chatted to them. I also enjoyed distracting Matt Holland who was frantically trying to paint an Mechanicus Knight in a single day – legend!.
