Default Warhammer World/GW HQ in Nottingham

Hello friendly fellow forum goers,

Next week I'm going to be in London for about five days. I've never been before and I'm very much looking forward to it. One of the things I'd like to do while I'm in the UK is visit GW HQ in Nottingham.

I have a couple of questions for anyone who has been there before or goes there on a regular basis:

1 - Is it worth? If I do go that will basically be one whole day of my trip, so I don't want to waste my time.

2 - Is there open gaming on Saturdays? Is it hard to find an opponent for a pick up game? Is there any way to sign up for a game so I have a guaranteed opponent?

Any advice or information would be great.

Thanks everyone!

Definately worth it. I loved it, and its great to gaze at the models. There is a room in which it contains literally hundreds of painted models, all in glass cabinets. Its great!

Not sure about the gaming day, but im sure you could find at least one opponent. The battle room is awesome, the room is made to look like the exterior of a castle!

I'm going to be there on Saturday the 13th of January.

I'm bringing my 1000 point Tau army. If anyone would like to play a game against some Canadian Tau I'd be more than happy to oblige.

I'm quite looking forward to checking out the game room, the museum and bugmans. Though I hope their ale ain't to terrible...

unfortunatley I have only got 400 points of 40K at the moment (I hae a thousand sons army but-suffice to say its a good thing that they are only spirits in armour :'( :'( :'()

Though my friends do go down at the weekend quite often, so there should be opponents there-post people go with friends though and play each other
