GW: Warhammer Studio Dioramas for Warhammer Fest

The Warhammer World Studio team makes amazing dioramas, check out what they’re bringing to Warhammer Fest…

Warhammer Fest is around the corner, and this year looks like it’ll be a pretty great one. In addition to the new Golden Demon categories that they’re introducing, they’re also bringing some fantastic looking Dioramas from the Warhammer World Studio team, whose collective work you can see at Warhammer World, predictably.

A good diorama uses miniatures and scenery to capture a moment, or multiple moments, within in a bigger event, and the Warhammer World Studio team are no strangers to creating evocative dioramas packed with miniatures and narrative.

We caught up with Warhammer World Studio manager James Karch, as he let us take some photos of their current work in progress.

“We have a few dioramas on the go right now, as we’re planning to take four complete and one work-in-progress diorama to Warhammer Fest in May. It’ll be like a mini Warhammer World Exhibition area. Ferro-Giant Alphus is complete, but the others are all in different stages!”


I love the little Prometheum Cache carts motoring around…also is that Malcador the Sigillite on the landing pad?

“I know the team will get them done in good time, and we want to take more dioramas to Warhammer Fest this year than we have before, to really give people a variety to look at. It’s cracking to chat with folks, as we often put a diorama on display in Warhammer World but don’t get to see how people react to it, or get chance to answer their questions about it.”

Forge World’s Mark Bedford and Phil Stutcinskas are also working on a detailed new diorama for the Warhammer World Exhibition, and we got privileged access for a closer look.

Kind of reminds me of that car tunnel in the Redwood Forest…

As always, you can find more information on Warhammer Fest at their website, but here’s a brief reminder of what you can expect to find there:

  • Shop from the largest collection of products at any Warhammer show in the world, including brand new and First Access models, plus New Event Exclusives.
  • Meet members of the Forge World, Citadel, White Dwarf, Army Painter and ‘Eavy Metal Teams, and other creative folks from Games Workshop.
  • Admire hundreds of beautifully painted miniatures, and enter yours in the world famous Golden Demon painting competition.
  • Learn more at one of the in-depth seminars and hobby Demo Pods.
  • Take part in the first ever Warhammer Fest Grand Tournaments.

Okay sure, but what would be on display in YOUR favorite diorama?
