Event description


For fans of the Horus Heresy and Adeptus Titanicus, the Horus Heresy Weekender is the ultimate event not to be missed. Prepare to immerse yourself fully as you explore every detail of these worlds. Chat with the masterminds who created them, see the latest miniatures, and uncover what the future holds for the hobby you love. If you want a dedicated weekend that leaves no stone unturned, then the Horus Heresy Weekender is for you. Here’s what’s in store:

Seminars: We have a wide selection of seminars over the course of the weekend. Delve into the detail of recent releases and the journey the team embarked upon to bring these fantastic miniatures and publications into being. Take a glimpse into the future as Forge World’s coming plans are revealed for the first time…

Studio Area: Meet the brains behind your favourite games in person. The people who produce the Horus Heresy and Adeptus Titanicus will be on hand, along with the talented teams of painters, sculptors and artists who bring these worlds to life. Ask them the questions you’ve always wanted to ask, see them in action, and get a few tips along the way for your next project. It’s also a great chance to see up-close the latest and greatest work they’ve been doing.

Black Library – Meet and Greet: A selection of Black Library authors will be making an appearance, including the writers of the latest Horus Heresy stories. Chat with the authors to get first-hand insight into their work, and get your books signed in the process.

Hobby Clinics: For those of you wanting to scratch your hobby itch, these clinics are not to be missed. Receive first-class guidance on your next hobby project from the professionals, including how to work with resin and how to achieve the techniques you see across our range of miniatures.

Painting Competition: Have a particular model you are proud of? Bring it along and enter it into the Horus Heresy Weekender painting competition. Our team of expert judges will then pick their favourites, with the winners earning an award for their efforts. Not quite ready to enter yet? Don’t worry – it’s a fantastic chance to see some amazing work from fellow hobbyists and be inspired for your next project.

Organised Play: If you want to battle it out on the tabletop, the event will host a series of organised play games so you can wage war. Game across fully painted tables created by the Warhammer World Design Studio, meet new people and reignite old grudges from previous campaigns. There will also be a series of ‘open gaming’ tables for those of you wanting to play ad-hoc games with friends.

Latest Releases: Want to be the very first to get your hands on the latest releases? The Horus Heresy Weekender will give you the opportunity to get your hands on the models, books and boxed sets of your favourite games. If it sells out, we will ship it anywhere in the world free of charge.
