Those big displays look ace, but those smaller classic pieces are what stick in my mind.
The Emperor vs Horus is one of my favourites. A real classic piece. I've still got the White Dwarf issue where they take you through the construction of it.
My two favorite on the little ones are the lizardmen versus conquistadors. And the old space hulk one
I remember seeing a bunch of those in White Dwarf, or various Supplements over the years. Must be awesome to get to see them in person. Especially for the big dioramas, photosets can never capture all the cool bits.I hope I manage to get back there some day. It wasn't nearly as impressive when I visited. Partly just because there wasn't as much to work with back in 2005, but it also ended up being a terrible weekend to visit, with many of the displays being changed out, and a GT going on, so the place was completely packed.I love how some of them are so epic that they mess with your sense of scale. Like in the Valedor one, I was looking through the pics and thinking "OK, there's a Harpy and a WraithKnight--wait. *That* is a Harpy. Those little guys are WraithKnights. Those two are a Harridan and a god damn Phantom Titan!"On the one with the Khorne Daemons assaulting the Ultramarines, are the different coloured pics a filter, or do they vary the lighting on that display or something? Also, I have the supplement that was made for, and they didn't include two of the coolest pics you have here: The Soul Grinder clambering up the outer wall, and the Kharybdis getting ready to just bust through into the Hive, while the Assault Marines swarm around trying to stop it. They didn't have any shots that showed off the full scale of the piece as well, either.Thanks for sharing!
It is certainly very impressive now. Only the 40k section was open as they were renovating the Age of Sigmar section. The scale of some of them is amazing, it's a real accomplishment. The Khorne Daemon display had different lighting effects on it and some sound effects too. The full piece is massive, about 10 feet high, reaching between two floors of the building. It is so easy to miss all the little details on the board until you take the time to look over it.
It’s great isn’t it! Everytime I make the trip I visit the exhibition halls if I can. Amazing inspiration
Love the exhibition. Would recommend it to any visitors to Warhammer World. Really like how it's included in the price of a Warhammer World event.
Wow I didn’t realise they still had so many of the classics on display. One day I’ll finally make the trip upThanks for sharing
