As one of the largest wargaming companies in the world, Games Workshop has a staggering number of stores across the UK. Some of these stores include a Games Workshop Hobby Centre where people can try the games for free and get advice from dedicated staff.
The company started life in 1975 as a producer of wooden board games - but soon moved into the area of wargames and role-playing games of which it continues to be the UK's leader.
Games Workshop strives to develop the community aspect of wargaming through a variety of workshops, clubs and conventions. The company also publishes White Dwarf, a dedicated gaming magazine that focuses on Games Workshop's two primary gaming systems - Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000.
The incredibly detailed figurines, vehicles and playsets all come to life when carefully painted with Games Workshop’s own brand of paints, some of which are scaringly named Bubonic Brown or Red Gore! A series of books explain possible battle scenarios in great detail, and some games can take enthusiasts several days to complete.
