Forge World at Games Day UK

Forge World have posted details of the games and displays they will have at Games Day UK 2010.

From their announcement:

Games Day this year will see the return of our ever-popular Warhammer 40,000-scale Aeronautica Imperialis participation game, and the second outing of our awesome Warhammer 40,000 Apocalypse participation game:

Super-Heavy Metal
A Titan Maniple of the Legio Gryphonicus strides into desperate battle against a mighty Ork Stompa Mob, also featuring an Armoured Battlegroup and up-gunned Orky Trukks and Wagons. This game is an awesome spectacle and terrific fun to play – if you’ve ever wanted to unleash the city-slaying firepower of a Reaver Titan, or pound one of a dozen mighty Stompas into brutal close combat, this is the game for you.

Aeronautica 40K
The elite squadrons of the Imperial Navy struggle for dominance against the foul Xenos pilots of the Tau Empire and the brutal Skwadrons of the Orks in this high-speed game of aerial combat, which up-scales our popular Aeronautica Imperialis rules for use with the finely-detailed Warhammer 40,000-scale aircraft kits in the Forge World range. Chalk your kill tally up on the Dispersal board and shoot down your opponents to become the first Ace pilot in this dramatic game of high-altitude combat.

Both of these games can be found on your Games Day map. To play, simply turn up at any point over the day, and our dedicated team of volunteers will ensure that you are thrust straight into the action.

Forge World Studio Displays
As usual, our entire Studio Design Team will be present at Games Day, showing off work-in-progress projects as well as displays of their recent work, and answering your questions on anything from ‘wish list’ models that they’d love to sculpt to the process of creating our master models.

Will Hayes will be proudly displaying a large Eldar project that he has been working on for quite some time now – in fact it’s a very large Eldar project. Will has recently been responsible for many of the popular Space Marine Armour and Weapons packs that Forge World has released, as well as the Elysian Tauros and Tauros Venator assault vehicles.

Phil Stutcinskas has been deeply involved with our new range of Space Marine Armour and Weapons packs, and as well as offering tips and hints on the finer arts of painting and weathering Forge World models he will be displaying a work-in-progress Dreadnought model, along with some of the exquisitely painted kits featured in Imperial Armour Model Masterclass Volume I.

Stuart Williamson, whose recent work includes the Ork Stompa Upgrade kits and Battlewagon Lifta-Droppa, will be showcasing a forthcoming, brand new Land Raider variant as well as explaining the finer points of vehicle modelling.

Daren Parrwood, the talented designer behind the fantastic Grot Tanks and Caestus Assault Ram has recently been hard at work on another Eldar project that he will be unveiling exclusively at Games Day.

We are still tracking down details of what else our Studio team will be showcasing at Games Day; look out for future Newsletters to hear more.
