2018’s Events Calendar Revealed

A new year means a new set of awesome events, and to make planning which ones you attend this year easy, today, we’re announcing EVERYTHING we’ve got planned for 2018 – from Warhammer Fest, to the next season of Grand Tournaments, to Warhammer World’s first Grand Clash! You can check out the full events calendar here, while we’re picking out some of the most exciting upcoming attractions.

Warhammer Fest

Warhammer Fest is the largest official Games Workshop event in the world, and attendees have the opportunity to rub shoulders with the people that make the games they love, check out awesome previews, compete in the Golden Demon and more – take a look at our report from last year’s for an impression of what you might expect! This year’s Warhammer Fest will be on the 12th and 13th of May.

Meanwhile, we know our fans in continental Europe have been clamouring for a Warhammer Fest of their own, and we’re very excited to announce that this year, you’ll be able to attend Warhammer Fest in Düsseldorf. If you’re interested, make sure to keep the 18th and 19th of August free! Tickets for Warhammer Fest aren’t on sale yet, but will be shortly, so keep your eyes peeled for further announcements. 

Grand Tournaments for 2019

This year will also see the 2019 Grand Tournament season kick off for Warhammer 40,000. In 2017, the tickets for the first ever Warhammer 40,000 Grand Tournament went on sale, with spaces selling out almost immediately. The next Grand Tournament promises to be a major event – especially with an even wider pool of codexes for players to draw from!

Open Days

We’ll also be seeing a host of Open Days in 2018. Warhammer World Open Days are great for any kind of fan. If you’re interested in the rules and setting, there’s the opportunity to speak to your favourite designers and writers, while miniatures fans can chat to designers and take a close look at upcoming releases. If this past weekend’s Open Day is anything to go by, we imagine we might make some pretty exciting reveals too…

The next Open Day this year will be on the 3rd of March, with the Warhammer Age of Sigmar Open Day. Tickets for this will be on sale soon, so watch this space.

Coming Soon

In the short run, there’s a series of events coming very soon, the first of which is the Warhammer Age of Sigmar Doubles Tournament! Doubles is one of the most enjoyable formats to play Warhammer in, not just putting your tactical skill to the test, but your bonds of brotherhood (or sisterhood) with a friend.

On the other hand, if you’re more interested in narrative play, March’s Campaign Weekend is a great way to test your forces in an ongoing collaborative narrative across two days of gaming.

The Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire Grand Clash

Finally, the Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire Grand Clash is coming home! Throughout the year, you’ll have the chance to put your deck-building and skirmish skills to the ultimate test. As with the other Grand Clashes, there’s a whole host of prizes to be won, not least of which is the coveted Grand Clash trophy. The first Warhammer World Grand Clash will be held on the 3rd of March, alongside the Warhammer Age of Sigmar Open Day – you’ll be able to get a combined ticket for both for only £25.

Conclusion

We’ll be highlighting some of the most exciting events of the year as they get closer – in the meantime, if you’re based in the U.S. and don’t fancy making the pilgrimage to Nottingham, we’ll also be attending a host of events in America this year, starting with the Las Vegas Open at the end of this month. We hope to see you soon!
