On August 21st 2010, Forge World attended Games Day Baltimore, in sunny (and quite humid) Maryland, USA. With a record attendance, this was the busiest US Games Day ever, and the Forge World team had a fantastic day.
Owen Branham, Forge World's Studio Manager, and Paul Rudge, Book Production Manager, were joined on our Design stand by Tony Cottrell, Head of Forge World, who delivered an exclusive seminar to a lucky few.
In addition to showing off work-in-progress projects including Imperial Armour Volume 9: The Badab War Part I, our three intrepid designers had the difficult task of selecting a model worthy of the coveted Forge World Best In Show trophy from amongst the impressive Golden Daemon entries, and they chose Nicolas Rouanet's fantastic Tauros Assault Vehicle:
In addition to the Forge World Trophy, and a Gold in the Vehicle Category for this diorama, Nicolas collected another Gold trophy in the Diorama category and a Bronze Golden Daemon from the Warhammer Single Miniature category - as you can see, it was quite a haul!
Over on the Sales stand, resin kits and Imperial Armour books were flying off the shelves - as you can see here, strict crowd control was provided by a specially trained communication servitor!
Games Day customers admire the many pre-release displays on our Studio Stand, including an exclusive unveiling of Lugft Huron, Sevrin Loth and Badab Part I.
Meanwhile, Rudgie (left), a native of the North of England, struggles to translate the American accent!
The queue for the Sales stand, shortly after the doors opened. No-one is sure exactly what the intrepid staff member with the trolley of models is pointing at, but it clearly captured several people's attention!
