A World of Warhammer
I decided to take a trip to Warhammer World in Nottingham with my step son as a way of further introducing him to the hobby. The best way to describe our collective experience is to say that our minds were completely blown.
It is remarkable how far Games Workshop has come in the years that I lost touch with the hobby. The miniatures are far more complex and intricate than the simple push together single pose models of Warhammer 40,000 second edition circa 1993. But I already knew this after having started collecting the new Primaris marines from 40Ks 8th edition earlier this year. That being said, I don't think I was quite prepared for the grand scale battles scenes that were on show in the exhibition halls. Of course, Ben wanted one of most things, especially the biggest most expensive items.
It's been a few weeks now since the trip, but I still don't think my mind has fully come to terms with what we saw, I'm even finding it difficult to choose some pictures from the day, there were that many amazing things. We spent a large portion of our day there and could have easily spent more time, and that's without booking some tables to play some games.
If anybody feels the need to surprise me with some Warhammer miniatures, both myself and my step son are putting together Space Marine armies.
