Warhammer 40K Open Day – 2019

I love going to open days. I love the atmosphere, meeting the design and studio teams and seeing people that I don’t see any other time of the year. The exhibition had changed somewhat and I took a lot of pictures as we discovered new pieces. I’ll start with those and then look at the design studio stuff!

Highlights of the exhibition include: Imperial Fist and Crimson Fist guts, Space Marines on dinosaurs, Sanguinius beating up daemons and the Bonereaper display in general.

The best part about these days, is being able to speak to and interact with the design teams. Seeing the concept art – with actual artiss working as we speak – is a real treat and the enthusiasm shared with them is infectious. Being able to share how evokative and inspiring some of the art work is a delight to them, and to share experiences is really lovely. This was gifted to my by Lewis Jones, one of the artists, and it shall take a place of pride in the house, once framed of course:

I need to name this cheerful fellow…

I also managed to look at a lot of new releases and future plans, I have seen the brand new Sisters of Battle box adn the miniatures it contains as well. We also managed to talk to the designers of the new Necromunda box set and scenary. I congratulated the maker on how disgustingly gross it was too. There are a lot of pictures here as well, and a lot I was excited about!

I was not allowed to look inside this shiny new book.
New Admech fliers look really cool!


Goggles man is the king of vision!


The digusto-pit, or corpse-starch factory…


And a final mention for this larger fellow, who I cannot wait to get my dirty heretic hands on and have my way with…


Spikes are a bit chaosy… But also this guy is so cool!!

  1. I wasn’t too sure about the new Mephiston model until I saw your photo of the model. It looks way better than the Warhammer community post photo! I think it’s because the model is in a shadowed spot so it makes it look more grim dark. The community version looks too clean and bright.

    I prefer the pose he has with his glove wiping off the blood from his face, it looks more badass and sinister. Just a shame I’m not a Blood Angels collector!

    You’ve done a lot of fantastic photos! 🙂


    1. Thank you. I love taking pictures when I am there, as there is so much to be excited about and see, I want to share it with everyone.

      Mephiston’s new mini is great, I really like it and look forward to painting him next week when he is released. I wasn’t a collector of Blood Angels, but I seem to have acquired a few now… they keep appearing…
