Games Workshop

Games Workshop are the largest producer of miniatures and wargames in the world, having created the absolutely colossal Warhammer franchise. Games Workshop opened its doors in 1975 when they were the first UK based retailer to sell Dungeons & Dragons. Soon after this, they developed their own range of miniatures and eventually exploded into the global company they are now. The grim dark sci-fi game Warhammer 40K leads the pack as their most popular title, though they now create a variety of different wargames, including Age of Sigmar, The Horus Heresy, Blood Bowl and much more.

Top Picks for 2024

Warhammer 40K: With a recent transition into the 10th edition of the Warhammer 40K ruleset, frequent new models and kits are being made available for all of the major factions. While the Battleforce box sets are undeniably the highest value, the combat patrols are the best option to dip your toes into an army. Chaos Space Marines, T’au Empire, Orks, Adeptus Custodes, Dark Angels, Adeptus Mechanicus and Necrons have all received brand new combat patrols with roughly 500 points of models to kickstart your new 10th edition Warhammer 40K army.

Warhammer The Old World: The Orcs & Goblin Tribes received a variety of models to start your Old World army with but the Battalion box set is the best bang for your buck collection that will kick start your Orc army.

Kill Team: The flagship GW skirmish game has a lot of teams to choose from. Each has a unique playstyle that defines them, though the Scout Squad and Blades of Khaine are some of the most powerful and fun to play yet.
