I have a number of routes home, and one of them takes me past this magnificent statue of an Age if Sigmar Liberator outside Games Workshop. I’ve taken a photo of this before, but it was rather dark, so here’s another when the sun was shining.
Teen-nerd me would have loved this kind of thing, but Warhammer and its kind came too late. These days I have other priorities, but if I had the time and cash to buy the figures I would be spending a lot of money in the shop at Warhammer World.
I work nearby to Games Workshop, those magnificent bastards that make Warhammer. I have a few routes home, and I chose to walk past here today.
Outside is this massive statue of one of their figures from their Age of Sigmar range, a Liberator. I had to look that up.
I’ve never played 40k or any other Games Workshop game, but I did do some roleplaying with figures similar to this in my teens. A friend and I made a nice diorama to battle on – I had an Orc army (with a bloody marvellous Balrog) and he had a Dwarf army. I’ve always been a bit ‘Horde’ (mixing it up with some Warcraft terminology there).
It was pretty dark when I walked past, so the photo lacks detail – better suited to this silhouette treatment
