My trip to Warhammer World


Recommended Posts

As part of the annual celebration of my emergence from the spawning pool, me and my family visited Warhammer World. I’ve not been for a while and with restrictions lifting in the UK, I thought I would just go through my thoughts and of course drop some photos. 
 

The Good

Its Warhammer World and basically Warhammer Mecca and I’d say if you can, go visit it. There’s loads of cool stuff to see and it’s really nice to have inspiration all around you. The venue is nice, Bugmans has nice food and drink and from a Covid point of view, I felt they were doing a good job. 
 

The Ugly

The exhibition hall is amazing but it’s not great value for money. It’s £7.50 each person but I felt it should be a bit cheaper or you got some extras. Might be me being a parent and seeing things a bit differently now. Also you need to book for everything. This is Ugly as if you don’t know this, you aren’t going have a good visit.
 

The Bad

Its not child friendly, especially a child with SEN, so please have a rethink if you want to bring a child who’s not playing the game or a teenager. Also I’m quite annoyed about a member of staff being a jobsworth and not letting me wife and son into Bugmans to go to the toilet. I get covid restrictions but this is a child who needs the toilet. My wife had to go round the one way system back to the entrance to use them.

Anyway some photos, not going to be everything as you need to see some stuff if you can visit:

I loved the Lustria diorama,it brings back old memories from when they first created it.It was in the old 5th edition Lizardmen book.Funny thing is that I have a few of the human figures from it and just finished repainting them for my COS army.Wow that sure makes me feel old.Thanks for showing all your pictures as I don’t think I’ll ever get to see them in person.

Thanks for the write up. With it needing to be pre-booked, was it fairly quiet? 

Seeing the old dioramas in person, that I used to drool over in White Dwarf as a kid is always a treat. I haven't been for a couple of years, so will try and get a trip planned for later this year.

I thought it was but all the gaming tables were in use. No where near as busy as it used to be. But I would recommend you book, even with what happens next week as I suspect GW will continue with their system for a few more weeks.

No worries and that’s why I did it. If you ever get chance, I would recommend it as Nottingham has a few tourist bits which are okay and there’s plenty of stuff in the area.

Great photos Gaz, thanks for sharing.

What other stuff would you recommend in Nottingham, to make a trip of it?  Sherwood Forest?

I will only mention stuff I’ve been to and disclaimer, it’s been a few years! Nottingham Castle is well worth a trip and whilst you are there, you might as well visit the oldest pub - Ye Olde Trip To Jerusalem. The Robin Hood experience was good but that was a few years ago! Not sure about other stuff as bit fuzzy in my memory. Warhammer World is not by the City Centre but the tram runs past it so you should be able get to it. When me and my wife last stayed, we were in a hotel on Phoenix parkway (Junction 26 of M1 outside city) and caught tram everywhere. This was good as no stress of driving and we could drink. Can’t do that now with a five year old!
