    Hey all

    I have today been to Warhammer World, the headquarters of the Games Workshop Organisation In Nottingham UK. They have a large gaming arena and a shop which you can order from and get your mail order 30 mins later (something I took advantage of), if its not in the shop.

    There is also the jewel in the crown, The museum as its called which is basically all the box top art with guest stuff done by Golden Demon Winners. Its a gem of a place all those mininatures done to such a high standard. If you are wondering about a day out then this is the place to visit.

    If anyone is wondering about whether we should allow these peope to show at Euro and such like they should visit too, thier illuisions would disappear, the standard is fantastic.

    Please see pics below for a flavour of what is there.

    Robin, Thanks for the great posting. What an awesome place. The gaming hall is really neat and I'm sure enhances the gaming experience. I own some Warhammer figures and have some of the books and had more of an interest in the miniatures than the game.~Gary

    Hi

    Well its teh figures for me too, though its more of a way of getting my Big lad interested in painting without pushing him if you know what I mean. Hes the lad in the top pic (my eldest hes 8, I am a proud dad) Digital camera in hand.

    Must admit I am a bit hooked on the figures, I have more pics I will post some if you want?

    I don't have any of these, but from time to time I have a look in a local shop, and the standard of the figures is always impressive. They always appear well made and are often well painted, especially considering their small size etc. Shame that our branch of the hobby doesn't show the same breadth of imagination.

    Thanks for the additional photos Robin. Looks like a great place to visit and get motivated regardless of what genre you paint in.
