Its deffo the 11th and 12th, i do my usual of phoning the hotel events team and asking, just saying i'm part of set up team and been given 2 dates etc, can they confirm.

As its expensive enough booking the trip so early booking is best.

The guy on the phone confirmed its the 10th for setup and sat sunday is the event :)

The main issue is if the painting comp is on the sat or the sunday, as they have mucked about with this recently.

Yeah was the Ricoh arena events, general enquiry line.

I don't see it as cheeky, i'm fed up of GW being super secret squirrel with regards to event dates, these event hall hires are usually blocks of 5 year contracts and when travel and hotel costs only get dearer closer to the events, they know ages in advance, and telling folk the event date less than 5 months before it is infuriating, especially as other events are often around this time and i have to budget out trips.

The fact they moved Euro from september to the same weekend/month as WF is so annoying, they know many people go to both events, so now they are forcing folk to choose one.  I really want to go the Euro, but my first aim is to win a G demon so WF will always win out, especially as GW have scrapped the mini demons now.

I am going to contact Max falej and ask if the Golden demon at WF 2019 is on the sunday as if they swap it round for this year the hotel booking swap could be fun.

It was the same with the EM masterclass event, it was something like 6 weeks before the event they suddenly had tickets out, which sold out in minutes, and i cant pluck some 600 out of thin air for 3 nights hotel, flight and the ticket they need to be planning stuff out in terms of telling folk, not releasing the ticket, but advertising dates.

However i realise GW doesnt need to care as they get the ticket money and its not their issue.

There is an annoying lack of info on any of their events. You'd think a company as successful as gw could hire some personnel to do some event management/promotion.

Well, I dont think they will be changing the main categories so I'm just painting entries for single now  ;D

I think we can be almost certain that the WHF UK will be on May 11th and 12th. I have even booked my holiday at work for that date :D

I am aiming for 40k single, AoS single, and vehicle.  However i would like them to pull finger out with the masters category as almost less than 4 months to go.
