Games and Good Times!


Setting Sail into the Blackest of Waters


We had a whale of a time previewing our new naval combat game Black Seas.

Demos in full swing


Author of Black Seas, Gabrio Tolentino and studio head Paul Sawyer also sat down to discuss some of the mechanics of the forthcoming Napoleonic Naval Combat Game:


Look for more on Black Seas in the coming weeks!


MiGs and Sabres


We were also showcasing our first foray into the jet age with MiG Alley! for Blood Red Skies.


The introduction of jets in MiG Alley seriously changes the dynamic of dogfights. The set is available for pre-order now and in local stockists this August!

In Full Swing


Open Day in full swing


The event wasn’t limited to playing games. There were seminars, tours, studio previews and all manner of hobbyists to interact with. Whether they be gamers, painters, designers or writers; they truly showcased what makes this hobby so fantastic.

The below video gives a brief overview of the day; and also contains some cheeky sneak peeks at things to come! We hope you don’t find them ‘Dredd’ful – sorry.


The Studio Team


Our illustrious studio team were on hand demonstrating painting, sculpting and the design work that goes into creating all our miniatures.


They were only too happy to help in showcasing techniques and offering advice, as well as showing off a few things that we have in the pipeline!

The law is coming – look for it towards the end of the year!


Open Day Seminars 2019


A number of Seminars took place over the course of the day. A couple were even live-streamed! As well as the Black Seas seminar linked above, you can also see Warlord co-founders John Stallard and Paul Sawyer delve into our humble beginnings and answer questions on what’s to come for Warlord Games.

Phew! That’s it for one year. We would like to thank everyone who made this an epic day for all.

Let’s do it again next year!
