Nerdcation Part 3 - In the Grim Darkness of the Far Future

There Is Only Models. Lots. And Lots. Of Models.

Holy sugar-shit, these displays. While I love fantasy and Age of Sigmar, the Warhammer 40,000 universe really lends itself to epic, over-the-top scenes. And the 40k section of Warhammer World did not disappoint.

Tyranids assault a Space Wolf stronghold.
Love that defense laser.
Astra Militarum entrenched and ready to defend.
All the Shadow War Scenery in one place!
I can't even imagine reaching into to play a game.
An Inquisitorial team arrives to a Genestealer cult welcome!
Prospero Burns!
Love the Egyptian-style scenery.
So much battle. Very carnage. Wow.

Every Guard player's dream.
I love the armored train in the background.

Iron Hands vs. The Emporer's Children

Last Stand.
Land Raider Assault.
Ferrus Manus and Fulgrim battle it out in the center. 
The battle of Rynn's World - and classic cover of Rogue Trader!
We have a Valkyrie down. We have a Valkyrie down.
Skitarii and Titans flush out a nest of Tau.
Hold the line!
Love the lava effects.

This display took up a whole room and almost 2 floors.
Lighting effects cycled throughout the display.
Clash of Titans.
Sieze the bridge!
Not picture: a LOT of DO NOT TOUCH signs.

The cityscape was breath-taking.
This could almost be mistaken for a 6mm Epic game.
Blood fer da Blood Gerd!
Drop Pods smash into the tower.
A view from on high.
Heading down the stairs.
The Ultramarines stem the tide.
You can see a woman resting on the stairs for scale.

Love the colors.

The carnage! The carnage!

There was so much more to see. This is just a fraction of what was there. It was truly a magnificent exhibition. If I get the chance to return, I would certainly budget more time in Nottingham. It is a lovely city and the people were kinder to me than I could have imagined. I managed to meet some folks in the industry and they treated me like a prodigal son. I can't thank them enough.
