The company's British operating subsidiary company is Games Workshop Limited.Overview and historyFounded in 1975 at 15 Bolingbroke Road, London by John Peake, Ian Livingstone, and Steve Jackson (not to be confused with U.S. game designer Steve Jackson), Games Workshop was originally a manufacturer of wooden boards for games such as backgammon, mancala, Nine Men's Morris, and Go. It later became an importer of the U.S. role-playing game Dungeons & Dragons and then a publisher of wargames and role-playing games in its own right, expanding from a bedroom mail-order company in the process.In order to promote their business and postal games, create a games club, and provide an alternative source for games news, the newsletter Owl and Weasel was founded in February 1975. This was superseded in June 1977 by White Dwarf.

    We stopped off here on our way into Nottingham - simply because it was the only place I'd heard of where I knew we could eat in the area. Turned out to be a good choice - the food in Bugman's was tast...  more »

    Great Staff at the store who were always ready to assist and answer questions. The dioramas were well worth the museum entry fee. The only issue that I had was not seeing a lot more of the older model...  more »

  • Another codex full of needless spelling errors. I ring to offer them my services as a professional proof reader, because of my concerns for the quality of the product. They dont want to ring you back or record your number. Just pathetic.
  • This place is amazing. friendly staff, huge playing area with the highest quality tables I have ever seen, shop with worldwide exclusives. Everything warhammer fan need in one place. As for "Warhammer World" I got only one word to say - majestic. Dioramas that were presented were amazing, with the main one containing over 6000 figures. It was so big that it was almost impossible to get a picture of it! It was definitely one of the kind experience and I would recommend to visit this museum even for non wargamers as ticket price is cheap (~£7.50 for adult ticket).
  • Has anything you may need for your Warhammer hobby: paints, brushes, a variety of models! Go there also for help and advice on painting and game tactics.
  • Always so awesome. Great staff. My kids say it is better than disneyland
  • Always a pleasure to go to the staff are so helpful and always willing to help or just chat with. Love the theme thought-out always something for your eyes to feast on
