John Blanche undead diorama at Warhammer World Nottingham

I visited the "Enter the Citadel" event at Warhammer World Nottingham last Saturday at took some pics of various figures including some wonderful conversions by John Blanche and others in the style of Blanche. More on those soon but in the meantime here's a quickie post of some pics of John's famous undead diorama.

  2. It's one of the things I MUST see before I die.

  3. I too must see this model one day. So influential in so many ways. I do wonder how it manages to pass the 'GW models only' rule that GW stores promote considering there are some many none Citadel models in there (;

    More NOW Steve!

  4. My all time favourite diorama. I think Dave King from Bederken minis is attempting to recreate it.

  6. Such a great and classic piece. I often wonder if any of the figures here are going to start cracking from lead rot like some of my painted pieces....grrrrrrr.

  8. Thank you for putting on the photographs.
    It's a wonderful diorama, I always loved looking at it, and it is very evocative of fantasy settings and of 1980's Warhammer.
