Why does this page exist?

1.

I believe Games Workshop makes some of the most fantastic hobby products and games in the world.

2.

I also believe that Games Workshop is very bad at making it easy to get into the Warhammer hobby and providing enough information about products and rules.

My goal:

Is to fill that information gap by providing quality in-depth content about rules, products and the Warhammer hobby.

The hope:

Is that you enjoy what you read, find it informative and feel inspired.
