A Grand Opening and a Grander Exposition

Two big announcements from the Warhammer Citadel this week – exciting news for anyone planning a visit to the new home of Warhammer in North America.

Grand Opening

Store Grand Openings are always a major occasion, and the debut of this all-new breed of store is especially momentous. We’re delighted to announce that the Warhammer Citadel will be opening its doors to customers on the 9th and 10th of June with a weekend of celebrations, and we want you to come on down and join the party.

To kick off, the Warhammer Citadel will be playing host to games galore, staying open for Warhammer Age of Sigmar and Warhammer 40,000 battles late into the night and offering you the chance to test your competitive gaming skills with a Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire tournament.

As with all store Grand Openings, you’ll be able to get your hands on the exclusive store-opening Space Marine Captain.

This isn’t just any store, though – there will also be Forge World models in stock and available from this weekend, and forever more, as well as Warhammer Citadel exclusives available nowhere else!

The Warhammer Expo

We’ve got loads of events planned for the Warhammer Citadel, and tickets for a particularly awesome one will be available very soon.

On October 27th and 28th, the Warhammer Citadel is organizing a Warhammer Expo – a celebration of the world’s greatest hobby that’s designed especially for new hobbyists and those who wish to introduce their friends to the worlds of Warhammer. The Expo will be situated a stone’s throw away from the Warhammer Citadel itself – perfect if you’re looking for an excuse to visit or just want to fit more hobby into your weekend.

Attendees can look forward to painting tutorials, competitions, gaming and more, in the first event of its kind hosted anywhere in the world. Tickets will be free, but limited, and available exclusively to new players or those who have earned a “Lord of Recruits” Citadel Crusader card.

You can earn your tickets at any local Warhammer or Games Workshop store in North America – check in with your local store later this month for details on how.

So, if you’re a long-time Warhammer fan in North America, and you want a good day to visit the new Warhammer Citadel, join us for the Grand Opening, and if you’re still pretty new to Warhammer but fancy joining us for a fun weekend, the Warhammer Expo is for you.
