New Year’s Open Day 2018: The Archive

In this news update for the New Year’s Open Day on January 6th 2018, we’re looking at the always popular Archive display, and seeing what it’s bringing you for 2018.

There’s something warm, fuzzy and a bit terrifying when you start to look back through your years with the Games Workshop hobby, a mix of happy nostalgia and “wow, was it really that long ago?…”

For 2018 we’re not sticking with one theme, but jumping back through time to 2008, 1998, 1988 and 1987! The Exhibitions Curator has been rifling through White Dwarf, picking out some of the announcements and releases from those years, to see which ones you remember.

The Archive display combines miniatures, products and publications from throughout the years with a timeline of memorable moments, and you can add your own memorable moment, letting us know on our timeline poster what and when your first miniature was!

This is only one of the great displays and activities to enjoy at the New Year’s Open Day, so get your tickets now and get ready to enjoy a great start to 2018!


Warhammer World’s New Year’s Open Day is a celebration of the amazing Citadel and Forge World models we’ve produced over the years, as well as giving you a chance to look at what is to come. It’s a fantastic way to start your year!
