Warhammer 40,000 Vigilus Weekender
Become part of the story on Vigilus at the Warhammer 40,000 Weekender! The embattled sentinel world stands guard at the mouth of the Nachmund Gauntlet – the only stable route through the Great Rift – and its strategic importance is all but unrivalled. Come and join in the fun as Warhammer World plays host to an exciting celebration of the latest seismic events that are taking place in the 41st Millennium. Here’s what you can look forward to:
Saturday 24th November 2018 – Open Day
We have a wide selection of seminars over the course of the Open Day on Saturday, including the ever-popular Warhammer Community and Design Studio seminar, which discusses the latest releases and, if you’re lucky, some early reveals! There is also a seminar with the ’Eavy Metal team, who will be fielding questions and discussing how the miniatures for Warhammer Quest: Blackstone Fortress were painted, as well a session with the Design Studio’s artists focusing on drawing sketches. There will also be a seminar introducing the latest exciting updates to the events calendar.
Meet the brains behind the dark millennium. Our Warhammer 40,000 rules and background writers will be joined by the army painters and artists responsible for the wonderful armies and artwork in the rulebooks and codexes. You will also be able to meet the scenery designers and painters, as well as members of the Specialist Games, Horus Heresy and Warhammer World studios.
Have you played Speed Freeks yet? What about Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team? Our demo area will cater for these games and more, including Necromunda, Adeptus Titanicus and, of course, Warhammer 40,000 itself. You can even try out Warhammer Quest: Blackstone Fortress!
We’ll also be joined by some of the creative teams behind a few of our most popular licensed games set in the 41st Millennium – including Kasedo Games, the designers of Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus. There will be a number of exciting interactive events and demos to try out, so be sure to stop by.
Black Library Meet & Greet:
A selection of Black Library authors will be making an appearance, including Blackstone Fortress writer Darius Hinks. Why not have a quick chat and get your books signed while you’re at it?
Open Hobby Area:
A pre-prepared area that caters for bring-and-battle games on our open or themed battlefields, as well as dedicated stations at which you can build or paint your miniatures.
And last, but not least…
Everyone’s favourite painting competition! The last Open Day Golden Demon will feature the following Warhammer 40,000 categories: Single Miniature, Squad, Vehicle/Monster, Large Model, Duel, Youngbloods and the Unbound, plus a Staff Category.
The Events Hall, hosting the Warhammer 40,000 Vigilus Open Day, will require a ticket for entry, but the stores, Exhibition and Bugman’s bar will all be open to visitors as usual.
Sunday 25th November 2018 – Vigilus Tournament
Take part in epic battles across the war-torn surface of Vigilus itself in our Sunday Tournament. It’s a 1,000-point matched play event, including 3 battles over the course of the day, and even includes lunch! Once all of the results have been gathered at the end of the day, prizes will be awarded for the overall winner and the two runners-up, as well for the coveted Best Army painting award.
