Warhammer world has changed a bit in the past few years.
There is, in short a visitor centre for fans of Games Workshop- Bugmans bar, the museum/miniatures, original art, gaming tables and Hobby Bar. Plus the store.
The museum is gone, but the new thing - The Citadel Miniatures Hall is a bit of a jawdropper. The miniatures are the big thing so rather than displays and stuff, they have stripped out the room and put lush cabinets with all the professionally painted miniatures on display. Seen it in books? bit differnt seeing it for real.
The museumy bit now i guess is the displays of old product and original art they put in the main hall. It takes what is usually just seen in books and puts the real stuff on show. Never knew they had their own artists work in the building but apparently so. Quite cool to know it's not photoshop!
Gaming tables rock. They have a room which is A. big B. designed to look like a castle courtyard. there's lot of tables with scenery which are free to use and some of the special stuff you can only do at home if mad. There's one set up which I've been told is worth about £8,000! that's what having access to Forgeworld does!
The hobby bar is a thing which was shut when we went but opens on weekends and school hols. For a price on par with what kits cost to purcahse anyway you get to build miniatures and stuff with a tutor giving advice. Seems like a nice idea for people beginning the hobby and along with mates.
The best bits are Bugmans and the store. Both have great staff and look after people really well. The store will order anything in stock and get it to you in two hours (i think that's the deal) so although they can't make old miniatures they can grab stuff from the warehouse. Also if you order Forgeworld it's free p&p and they tend to have some bits in stock as well.
Bugmans is nice mix of bar/cafe with comfy chillout seats being used by parents who had coffee and books. Kids were playing games and one lot of guys were even role playing. Not many bars are cool with that but this is a place that gets gamers and people not wanting loud music but a chance to interact. Great nosh too! even plenty for a veggie.
Overall, hobbyists will love it and the staff tend to be good enough for none hobbyists to feel welcome too. take an army and get a table to play games with mates (you can also drink beer while playing!)
Summary: worth a visit if you live far out- -every hobbyists should make the trip - notts also has lost to do
