Today's picture gallery celebrates one of Games Workshop's gems lost in time: the Epic (6mm scale) series of games. Thanks in large part to lower cost of introducing new models they expanded enormously the fluff of Warhammer 40k. »

Originally designed to fill gaps in failed finecast miniatures it does a really bad job at that. However it works great for adding texture to models and fixing problems with the "Chinese import" quality Games Workshop terrain »

Most fantasy and SF wargames are accused of being nothing more than glorified dice games. Whether this is true or not, dice are really the number one game pieces you will hold in your hand. They better be good then! The new dice from GW are great - if you handle them right, that is. »

Games Workshop produced an enticing-looking kit of dark future cityscape gubbinz to help you decorate bases of larger models. Unfortunately they took the low road and made a cheap rip-off of their true Warhammer 40k City Buildings line »

During the April 16-17, 2016 Weekend at Games Workshop stores you had a chance to get a special edition remake of the original 1985 Space Marine model.

As official sources at Games Workshop claim it has been exactly 30 years since the first Space Marine hit the stores. Catalogues published in the 90s and 00s claimed 1984 but its not important as every day is a good excuse to drink to the health of Imperial Space Marines! Read on to see the very first models as well as all 8 Space Marine Power Armour variants. »

Back in 2001 Games Workshop had a nice Albion-themed giants as well as all the Dogs of War craziness at its height »

One of the problems with the Dwarves is their lack of mobility. I like all the contraptions miniature designers come up with to fix this problem -- usually with something completely loco »
