Warhammer Day 2019 in Koblenz

Yesterday was Warhammer Day in every Warhammer Store all over the world and I took the chance due to proximity, to stop by at the store in Koblenz.

What's the idea of Warhammer Day? Games Workshop has a larger marketing plan, making it easier to recognise the brand and to enter the hobby. So if most people already call it Warhammer and don't connect it that strongly with Games Workshop (especially like friends or family trying to buy items for you as a hobbyist), it makes sense to bring up the Warhammer brand stronger / more present. Similar with smaller scale games, with less miniatures, offering them as easy to build / faster to assembly kits and products like contrast paint, to cut down the time it takes to put them on the table. Oh and just to point out, Warhammer Day is not Warhammer Fest. We're still waiting for the announcement of the date in Europe / Germany.

The "party guests" were welcomed with cake, cup cakes and cold drinks, along with the Warhammer Day exclusives. Those were a Battle Sister Superior, a store exclusive Funko Pop! Primaris marine that is primed so you can paint it in your own style, a set of 6 strategic markers and a special Warhammer Day pin.

Adeptus Titanicus – Titan bases

In december of last year I did a solid theme week on Adeptus Titanicus. I covered the two Warlord Battle Titans, the Reaver Battle Titan in both variants as well.

They stand proud and tall, I've just ordered a box of Questoris Knights and Cerastus Knights, and can't wait for the Acastus Knight, that was teasered on Warhammer Fest.

CONflict Rhineland 2019

Today and tomorrow the CONflict Rheinland (Rhineland) will be held in Langenfeld near Leverkusen, between Cologne and Dusseldorf. As such it was a short and straight trip for me, 5 minutes to the Autobahn, 1 hour on it (just the A3, no changes...) and roughly 5 minutes to get from the exit to the venue.

The venue is the marksmen's club house St. Sebastianus Reusrath. Tickets are 5 EUR for a single day ticket and 8 EUR for both. Parking is free and available plenty right in front of the venue. As a club house, it has a bar counter, where drinks and snacks are available and as a marksmen's club house, it has a small shooting range, that was repurposed as an additional gaming area.

Munchkin Warhammer 40,000

Games Workshop does not make all their profits by selling miniatures, a solid part of the revenue is generated by licensed products. Those are not just video games, but board games as well. I showed you the Monopoly variant of Warhammer 40,000 already on this blog, and today I'd like to share the new Munchkin Warhammer 40,000 card game by Steve Jackson Games / Pegasus Spiele.

Munchkin began as a fun card game, with classic fantasy elements that you will know from Dungeon Crawlers and Role Playing games. Multiple supplements were released, adding more items, treasures and monters to the game. But multiple spin-offs, sometimes using licenses or specific themes like Pathfinder, Sci-Fi, Cthulhu or Superheroes. So going further and do a crossover with the Warhammer universe isn't far fetched.

Back to the Bunker

Picking up a classic, Back to the Future, I bought the bundle blister Heroes 4 by Crooked Dice at Salute last year covering a not-Marty-McFly and not-Michael Knight (the later of course has nothing to do with BTTF). As I thought these would make a great addition to Zombie Survivors.

Ad Arma Con 2019 Part II

And as mentioned, a lot of the German tabletop community joined in this event, so you've seen some that you've met at other shows earlier this year.

Rhein Main Tabletop brought their Battlefleet Gothic table with them.

Ad Arma Con 2019 Part I

As promised, I headed down into the "Palz" to Meckenheim, to visit the Ad Arma Convention 2019. New location, moved from the Sportshall in Speyer to the Gymnasium in Meckenheim.

Parking was a bit of an issue, if you came a bit late, you had to park along side the road or on the otherside on the parking lot of a Greek restaurant. After you've paid the 6 EUR entry fee, added one of the show miniatures to it, received your wrist band and were handed the ballot for "best table of the show", you could enter the hall itself through those roll ups.

May Dance

Just before German Labour Day, May 1st, the White Dwarf arrived along with the latest two warbands for Nightvault.

Games Workshop - May Releases

In addition I picked up the Citadel water pot at my local Warhammer store. If you're wondering about the cover, that's a subscription issue, where the artwork covers the whole front as a special service for the subscribers.

7th Rhein Main Multiversum 2019

Due to the so-so weather, I didn't take the scenic route through the Taunus towards Nidderau, just north-east of Frankfurt, but the Autobahn. Because once again and for the 7th time, the Tabletop Club Rhein-Main hosted their Rhein-Main Multiversum at the Willi-Salzmann hall during the whole weekend.
