Collect Build Paint Play

The Games Workshop hobby is collecting, building, painting and playing games with Citadel miniatures.

Some devote all of their time to one of these aspects, others enjoy them all. The only correct way is the one that is best suited to you.

Below are a series of short videos demonstrating how easy it is to get started. True mastery however takes time and dedication.


A collection of Citadel miniatures is a very personal posession.

No two collections come about in exactly the same way, and every journey is unique. With new miniatures added to our range almost every week, no collection is ever complete.

There are over 4,000 stores in over 50 countries selling miniatures, paints, books and accessories from the worlds of Warhammer.

In hundreds of these stores – including over 430 dedicated Games Workshop and Warhammer stores – you can get help, advice and support with painting, building, playing games and choosing the right products for you.

If you can’t get to a store, the complete range of Games Workshop products is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week here at


Building your miniatures is a very enjoyable experience, seeing them take shape as you assemble them however you see fit.

All of our miniatures come with detailed instructions covering the multiple building options and we sell an exclusive range of tools to allow you to get the best possible results.

The large number of extra components provided in our kits means no two collections are ever the same. And as your collection grows, the possibilities to personalise it are almost endless.


Painting is an immensely satisfying part of many people’s hobby.

It’s an opportunity to lavish attention on your collection, to personalise your miniatures and – as you grow in skill and confidence – to display your skills.

We have an exclusive range of paints and brushes designed specifically for painting Citadel miniatures and an extensive range of books, videos and tutorials that show you how to get great results.


Your miniatures aren’t just a labour of love and a thing of beauty – they are also a mighty army!

Whether you want to refight famous battles, or write new stories of epic victory (or defeat), Warhammer Age of Sigmar and Warhammer 40,000 have complete rules to help you wage war on the tabletop.

This is a gaming experience unlike any other: a social event, part game, part storytelling as you become immersed in the world, shaping its destiny by your choices, risking the fate of entire worlds on the roll of the dice!

Warhammer Age of Sigmar is an epic, swords and sorcery tale of heroes, gods and monsters fighting a desperate battle for the fate of the Mortal Realms.

The Realms of Warhammer Age of Sigmar are filled with the savage battle cries of warring armies.

Will you lead a numinous host of avenging heroes, a stalwart band of doughty Duardin, a mystical clique of haughty Aelf or a warrior hoard of Bloodbound? The choice is yours!
