!!Tropes Associated with Games Workshop

* CrapsackWorld: GW has created two of the greatest examples of this trope ever. ''Warhammer Fantasy Battle'' emphasizes the [[TheDungAges worst]] [[EverythingTryingToKillYou aspects]] [[GrayAndBlackMorality of]] living in a LowFantasy world, while ''Warhammer 40k'' takes it to such extremes that it has become the TropeNamer for GrimDark.
** ''Warhammer Age of Sigmar'', however, averts the trope to a degree; while there's still a lot of GrayAndBlackMorality, it is a ''FAR'' better world to live in than ''Fantasy Battle''. In fact, it is the one of GW's original properties that gives you a chance for a better future.
* TheFace: Duncan Rhodes, who hosts the painting tutorials on the company's YouTube channel.
* FriendlyRival: What the players will be engaging in. Under normal circumstances, you and your friends will use the game as an excuse to get together to have fun and chat, while watching your armies batter each other's faces in.

Games Workshop (GW) is the massive British juggernaut of miniature models...while that may seem like an oxymoron, it's true. The company is behind the popular ''[[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}} Warhammer Fantasy Battle]]'' series along with ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}''; the former being replaced by ''TabletopGame/WarhammerAgeOfSigmar'' in 2015. It also boasts a licensed ''[[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings The Lord of The Rings: Strategy Battle Game]]'' an has at times held the UK publishing rights for ''TabletopGame/CallOfCthulhu'', ''TabletopGame/{{Runequest}}'' and ''Middle-Earth Role Playing'' -- although it is no longer directly involved with tabletop roleplaying games.

Games Workshop isn't limited to models though, and in other years has released numerous board games including; Series/DoctorWho (1980s), ''TabletopGame/DarkFuture ComicBook/JudgeDredd'' and, of course, ''TabletopGame/SpaceHulk''. It's had numerous third parties create computer games based off various Warhammer and 40k stories. On top of that they also have several books and comics based off their series and have entered the film industry with ''Film/{{Ultramarines}}: [[TitleTheAdaptation The Movie]]''.

And of course with all this going on it's hard to keep the fans informed, so they also publish their own magazine, ''Magazine/WhiteDwarf'', which currently focuses solely on the core three miniature model series (Warhammer, 40k and [=LOTR=]:SBG).

If you're interested in Games Workshop miniatures, you can normally expect two things: 1) a very friendly (if not nerdy) group of people that will be more than willing to help put together the models, paint the models and then play a game with you; and 2) [[CrackIsCheaper having no money]]. Along with their now aggressive stance on [[DisneyOwnsThisTrope intellectual property rights]] (where before they were quite lax), constant price hikes far beyond inflation rates, and embargo on sales to the Southern Hemisphere in an attempt to force people there to pay further inflated prices, it has managed to attain a reputation of being, well, {{evil|Inc}}. That being said, GW changed CEOs in 2015, and has slowly but surely began an overhaul of its public image, focusing on stepping up its communication with the fanbase and incorporating their feedback into its rules releases and other output, and even developing a sense of humor about themselves.

--> ''It is the 3rd Millennium. For more than a hundred months Games Workshop has sat immobile on the Golden Throne of Nottingham. It is the foremost of wargames by the will of the neckbeards, and master of a million tabletops by the might of their inexhaustible wallets. It is a rotting carcass writhing invisibly with business strategies from the early Industrial Revolution Age. It is the Carrion Lord of the wargaming scene for whom a thousand veteran players are sacrificed every day, so that it may never truly die.\\
