A Visit To Games Workshop 1979 via David Wood!

David Wood from the Dear Tony Blair blog has shared this today. After the Bolt Thrower Goblin mash up, talk about two great finds from old magazines and newspapers in a single day! Anyway, David's post contains a fascinating article from a Military Modelling from 1979, which chronicles a visit to Games Workshop, including some very rare photographs of Dalling Road and Citadel Miniatures!

Go check out David's blog, as there is more to see there, and don't forget to follow him and show your support of a fellow blogger. 

Here's the rest of the article that would interest us here...

Yes, your eyes are not deceiving you... That gentleman bottom left is the Mighty Avenger, Bryan Ansell, circa 1979!

Thanks to David Wood!


  1. Spread the word! Some great articles in the old modelling press. Quite a few more on the blog over the years.... in theory the tags on the right should help anyone interested.

  2. Narcopaths (malignant narcissists, narcissistic sociopath) are masters at playing mind games. They play to win and take no prisoners. They are sore losers and if they don't win they will often react in a fit of rage and stomp away like a little child. I have to say upfront, I am not comfortable calling what a narcopath does to us as games, but I can't think of a better alternative. I used manipulation characterized as games, but that's a mouthful. Anyway, every therapist I've talked with uses the term, so I will, too. When I think of games, I think of fun, laughter and enjoying myself. Nothing about my experience with the narcopath comes even close, so it's hard for me to think of the narcopath and games in the same setting. Polar opposites in my mind. เว็บนี้เลย
