Warhammer World Visit

In November, my favourite band Pitchshifter ended a 10 year hiaitus to go touring and recognise the 20th anniversary of their [arguably] most successful album www.pitchshifter.com [they since relinquished their own URL]. This manifested in five or 6 shows, culminating in a home town blow out in of all places - Nottingham. Our original plans were to see them 3 times on the tour but obviously things changed and it was only my brother and I who went to the final gig, so I had to drag him to Warhammer World for breakfast and the obligatory Rhino shot [he does NOT like having his picture taken].


Typically we also got there too late for breakfast but we enjoyed a sandwich in Bugman's


This was day 2 of the Vigilus weekender so the hall was packed.


But this Titan Battle was also going on.


Couple of Warlords facing off against each other.


And plenty of Knights too.



The highly intricate and claustraphobic Kill Team table



Adeptus Titanicus!


Deja vu of the battle going on in the main hall!


Knight Castellan and the new Necron Heavy Construct


and painted too.


Eavy Metal studio Speed Freeeeeeeeeeeeeks




Blackstone Fortress minis.



A big dragon!


Far from the weekend originally planned but these guys [who I haven't seen in so long] were amazing. Both my sons have middle names of Clayden, Mark and Jon Clayden [left and right] are the bass player and lead singer. It was amazing that my eldest got to meet his namesakes and alongside Dan and Tim they were all so supportive during the initial hardships of my youngest's treatment.

Left to right: Mark Clayden, Dan Rayner, Tyler Edward Clayden Weston, Tim Rayner, me, Jon Clayden - the mighty, mighty Pitchshifter [and fans ;) ]
