Warhammer Fest 2019

Recommended Posts

So tickets for Warhammer Fest go up for purchase tomorrow!  The event is the 11th/12th May once again at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry.

They've been listed on Eventbrite as available from 10am GMT and prices are as follows:

Adult Saturday/Sunday - £20 per day

Child* Saturday/Sunday - £10 per day

Adult all weekend £37.50

Child* all weekend £17.50

The event will have a number of skirmish sized participation games going on (Kill Team, Underworlds etc), but no 40k or AoS games.

This is also the only UK event with a Golden Demon!  So even more kudos if you manage to pick up one of these coveted trophies**

This is being hyped as having some "revolutionary" changes so should be well worth the effort of going along.

 

 

* 11 years and over - under 11 are free

** don't feel you have to - less competition for me isn't an issue 😂

I wish I lived a lot closer cause I'd rather spend the travel and overnight money on more models ;) Otherwise I'd love to attend since I'd wager this could be pretty big for AoS in terms of revealing things.

Pretty sure I can’t swing the day off work or I’d be going to the Sunday for Golden Daemon.

There are many times I wish somebody would invent an instant teleportation device - although I then have visions of scenes from The Fly combined with massively overweight people from Wall-E

hmmm, it's my birthday that weekend. Interested to see the reaction if I tell my wife that maybe we should put that weekend in Rome on hold and go to Coventry instead.

I'm going to be there (followed by a trip to Warhammer World a week and a bit afterwards :p)

I'm meeting up with some of our listeners, who I've become friends with online over the last year - it's going to be awesome!

Hoping for some nice tasty reveals....

Forgive the ignorance of someone who was out of the hobby for a decade... is this the same as what used to be called Games Day, or is this a different thing?

I'd settle for rail fairs 1/3 of what they are now! At least then rail and a night over somewhere wouldn't cripple the bank!

It is indeed the "new version" of Games Day.  Better structured, more content and ran over an entire weekend.  It's moved to a much nicer venue too and although the food isn't cheap it's better value than a fiver for a slice of pizza...

Rail fairs are crippling - think if I was going by train it'd be around the £60 mark.  Hotel wise a friend normally sorts it and I think it's normally a Premier Inn - £50 for the Saturday night - but there's 4 of us in total so we can share which helps massively.

I'm going.  Deffo there for the friday evening and Saturday.  Might make a full weekend of it.

Would be good to have a TGA meet up.

What’s Rome got that Coventry doesn’t?  Cathedrals both got them, part of the former Roman Empire, both were.

I say just take her to Coventry and it will be hard to even notice the difference 😂

Might buy myself a ticket to this, don't think I'll be able to get the whole weekend away from my duties but I could negotiate a day I'm sure...

What reveals for AOS does everyone expect  to see?
