Blood and Glory poster

The wonderful Steve Wren had made us a poster so gaming stores can display them for us to get the word out about the event.

If you run a store or a gaming centre ad would like to help us out by displaying a poster please let me know and I will get one shipped out.


Warhammer TV appearance.

This afternoon I am heading over to Warhammer World to talk to Ceri on Warhammer TV about one of my favourite hobby topics, community building.

Myself and Ben Johnson from the Design studio will be talking about our experiences in the hobby setting up our local Age of Sigmar games club and give Ing ideas on how you can do similar.

Check out the show at 4pm on Wednesday at or subscribe to watch back later.

The Blood and Glory Bar

This year at Blood and Glory we are opening a bar area where you can hang out away from the event and chill out without being confined to the gaming areas.

Just down the corridor from gaming hall, we have arranged with the venue to have food and drink served in their on-site restaurant

Located in the converted old Engine Shed house of Derby’s historic Roundhouse, the Engine Shed Restaurant boasts a handsome environment, steeped in railway history, creating a spacious and contemporary area.

we have access here through out the weekend so if you are planning on heading out for drinks why not stay on site instead.

WiP Wednesday


#WiPWednesday is how we will be showing the progress made each week with the event.

From terrain builds, to rules pack progress and table layouts each we we will be using the Hashtag #WiPWednesday and #BloodandGlory to put out an update about the Blood and Glory event.

Feel free to join in the fun and share with us what you have been doing in the hobby and also in preparation for Blood and Glory.
