Games Workshop!

By Nimah Crowley

COLLECT – BUILD – PAINT – PLAY

The Games Workshop hobby is collecting, building, painting and playing games with Citadel miniatures.
Some devote all of their time to one of these aspects, others enjoy them all. The only correct way is the one that is best suited to you!

COLLECT
A collection of Citadel miniatures is a very personal possession.
No two collections come about in exactly the same way, and every journey is unique. With new miniatures added to our range almost every week, no collection is ever complete!
On top of this you can come to the store where you can get help, advice and support with painting, building, playing games and choosing the right products for you!

BUILD
Building your miniatures is a very enjoyable experience, seeing them take shape as you assemble them however you see fit.
All of our miniatures come with detailed instructions covering the multiple building options and we sell an exclusive range of tools to allow you to get the best possible results.
The large number of extra components provided in our kits means no two collections are ever the same. And as your collection grows, the possibilities to personalise it are almost endless!

PAINT
Painting is an immensely satisfying part of many people’s hobby.
It’s an opportunity to lavish attention on your collection, to personalise your miniatures and – as you grown in skill and confidence – to display your skills.
We have an exclusive range of paints and brushes designed specifically for painting Citadel miniatures and an extensive range of books, videos and tutorials that show you how to get great results!

PLAY
Your miniatures aren’t just a labour of love and a thing of beauty – they are also a mighty army!
Whether you want to refight famous battles, or write new stories of epic victory (or defeat), Warhammer Age of Sigmar and Warhammer 40,000 have complete rules to help you wage war on the tabletop.
This is a gaming experience unlike any other: a social event, part game, part storytelling as you become immersed in the world, shaping its destiny by your choices, risking the fate of entire worlds on the roll of the dice!
