In 2019 we brought you news about the ArcWorld Second edition Kickstarter. Well, Warploque Miniatures was successful with its campaign and Alex and the team are well on their way to filling pledges.

If you can’t wait until the spring when pledges are expected to be filled, Alex and the team will be heading to Nottingham on 11-12 January 2020 for the ArcWorlde Weekender. Taking place at the Backlit Gallery, the 2-day event gives new and old fans the opportunity to get their paint on, while learning from the masters themselves. There will be a number of talks from Alex about his inspiration for the game as well as plenty of opportunities to play ArcWorlde as well.

What to Bring
Although you don’t need to bring anything to have fun, to get the most out of the weekend they recommend you bring along your ArcWorlde collection, as well as any terrain or scenery you have. If you would like to enjoy the painting activities, please bring your paints and brushes, as well as any painting mats or other hobby materials.
