From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.
There are thousands of miniatures on display in the Warhammer World exhibitions. From painted examples of everything in the current range, to huge dioramas showcasing epic battles in Games Workshops two main game systems.
What caught my eye on my recent visit to Warhammer World were the classic dioramas. From the late 80s to the mid 90s, Mike McVey brought the Warhammer worlds to life with his vivid dioramas. These were featured in past issues of White Dwarf and it was great to see them in the flesh.
This tiered diorama shows action over multiple levels of dungeon. Sadly my shots of the final level did not come out.
The Emperor versus Horus
A Games Workshop classic, showing a pivotal background moment. This predates the Forgeworld range by many years.
Dark Angel sanctum
A more contained diorama showing a warrior readying himself for battle.
Lizardmen versus ‘adventurers’
Another diorama where I am still holding on to the original White Dwarf. Face to face, the colours are still vivid after all these years.
Another diorama which has stood the test of time. The miniatures look so crisp!
Wood Elves versus undead
Wood Elves burst from the trees to ambush invading undead forces in another great diorama. This one emphasises action with the models clearly interacting, from the skeleton being lanced, to the other being crushed by Durthu (yes, that s Durthu!) to the arrows striking the skeletons behind. This helps convey the feeling of an ambush unfolding.
I hope you enjoyed these photos, and if you get the chance to see them in person, I recommend it!
