What is Warhammer?

Warhammer 40,000 and Warhammer Age of Sigmar are two of the most popular tabletop games in the world. Players enact an exciting battle using miniature models that represent warriors, vehicles, or monsters. Games are exciting and fun, and backed up by a deep and rich universe for you to explore and enjoy.

Whether you enjoy gaming, painting your models, or creating your own stories, Warhammer has something for you.

You can play games on the custom gaming tables in our shop or at home - any flat surface can be a battlefield!
