As normal, I'll be going with my local GW store. Really great, good banter on the bus, etc....

How much are the tickets and what's the 'free' mini?

 

If you've got your WD mine should turn up sometime randomly next week :rolleyes:

 

No idea on price, just give the date. I'd guess the same as last year. Limited ed model is a Skaven which was on the what new today a while back.

 

As for arrive unsure. Just mine arrive today, but last month did not arrive until the Mon after the offical release. While BA version arrive the Wed before offical date, one before that arrive on the day of offical release. While other near by me got there earily/later than me.

I'm going too.

Decided to make a weekend of it and travel up on the Saturday before - I can't stand coach travel so opted to go on the train instead and book myself into the Travelodge about a mile and a half away from the NEC.

 

It's going to be a very expensive weekend, but well worth it!

My girlfriend and I are going this year, just got the tickets in the post today :P. Have to admit, I'm fairly excited, this is the first time in 6 years that I've been, last time was the first year it was on in the NEC. Does anyone know if there's a floor plan for this years event anywhere?

Here a copy & peaste post by Philbrad over on warseer

 

http://www.warseer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=306211

 

June already, doesn't seem 5 mins since I posted the 2010 thread...

 

Tickets for the event are on sale to all and sundry now via the GW Website and GW have put up a holding page for the event here.

 

The event is as ever being held at the newly refurbed LG Arena at the NEC in Birmingham

 

If you've never been its worth attending at least one of these events in your gaming lifetime. For me this might be my last UKGD with my sons, one is leaving college and may be (in the interim) working for the 'evil empire' whilst he gets employment, the other is about to leave school, end of an era in PhilB household this been taking them to UKGD for about the past 5-6 years. Anyway enough of that, I'll use this thread to keep everyone up to date with goings on approaching the day as well as the usual Warseer 'whose coming' list. There will be the usual WS meet up which is usually 1pm by the SM statue, I'll be resplendent in my WS or rapidly disintegrating Portent T-shirt. all those attending the meet post below and I'll kick of the list.

 

The LG Arenas at the NEC is on Google Maps HERE minutes from the M42 Junction 6. Those not heading to it on the motorway you need to be on the A45 out of B'ham City Centre towards the International airport it's very well sign posted but watch the feeder roads between the NEC and airport they can be a bit confusing. If you're coming from further afield the site is right next to the airport and the Crowne Plaza is right on the NEC site.

 

Please (I say this every year) don't confuse the NIA (where GD used to be held) with the NEC, they are about 15 miles apart on separate sides of the city. The NEC is on the door step of Birmingham Intl Airport and Birmingham Intl Rail Station. If travelling by train, there are regular bus and rail links from Birmingham New St station or Solihull station if you can't get to the NEC directly.

 

If you need to get to the NEC from Birmingham or nearby Solihull I suggest you check out the NETWORKWESTMIDLANDS website for timetables of services.

 

Be seeing you ... :cool:

Games Day on the 25th Sept, a week from this Sunday. Belive this is the last week Games Day tickets will be on sale, you can not buy these that the door this year

 

http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/content/...p?aId=18200002a

 

So, on with today's news. First up is Games Day UK, which is now less than two weeks away (it's Sunday 25th September for those of you that don't know). Games Day is the biggest event in the Games Workshop calendar and none are bigger then Games Day UK. With around 10,000 fanatical hobbyists storming the NEC in Birmingham, it really is an event not to be missed. This week is the last week to buy your ticket for the event and unlike previous years we will NOT be selling tickets on the door. The simple reason for this is that we've nearly sold out - we only have a couple of hundred left in the warehouse and the few that are available in our Hobby Centres. So if you want to go, make sure that you ask, plead, beg or pester your significant other, parents or long-suffering partner if you can go and get your tickets before they run out!

 

I could talk for hours about Games Day UK, but the easiest way to find out more is to head over to this article, where you can find out what's going on. Even the What's New Today team will be there taking pictures of your models and getting videos of the event. Sadly I won't be there to enjoy the madness due to a badly scheduled holiday, but don't worry because my diminutive co-pilot, James (also known as 'Hobbit' due to his short stature and furry feet) will be there running about with Jim doing the videos instead. If you see them around, make sure you head over and say hello.

Now do you mean the place where they make sarnies or the local underground station?

 

If it's the second one, there are a couple of train stations near by if thats any help.

there is a subway within the nec complex but not within the LG arena itself..

 

http://www.thenec.co.uk/travel/Documents/nec-site-map.pdf

 

the plazza is your best chance for non overpriced stuff (subway etc are there) try and steer clear of buying anything from the LG itself its all massively overpriced (think theyre running a 100% markup on 500ml drinks still)

 

if anyone can get hold of the floor plan for this year, im interested to see how theyve set it out. last year wasnt that great imho, prefered the setup in hall 1 and 2 to the lg/pavilion setup they had.

 

hope all that helps.
