Nerdy Niches – Games Workshop

Ramblings Pop Culture News News Nerdy Niches

What is the nerdiest place that I can think of? Probably Games Workshop. Don’t know about it? Well you’re about to 😀  It’s a place where you make, paint and battle with figures.

Here is some helpful information:

What: Games Workshop

• And so much more….

The Good:

The figures can be god damn awesome. They have great detail and imagination to them; I honestly have been very tempted to buy some myself.
The games workshop is a great community place. The games workshop is a good place to meet other people just like yourself that love to play warcraft and probably love lots of other geeky stuff that you love as well.

The Bad:
Everything seems so expensive there. That might just be me because I’m a giant cheap skate but I’m sure lots of everyone else feels the same way.
No photos are allowed at the games workshop. I was sadly not allowed to take photos of the wonderful figurines that were at the Hornsby Games Workshop. This must really make advertising and articles of Games Workshops hard to do for lots of people such as me.

My silly own opinion:

Well I can easily say that warcraft is not exactly my thing, I see it as a bit too nerdy for me. Then again I guess others would just see it as a different kind of nerdy. I mean my friend has tonnes of warcraft models but there’s no way he would cosplay. Anyway I believe that some figures are honestly really damn awesome but I couldn’t be bothered to spend that much money on figures to fight with people step by step. I guess I just feel like half way through the ‘fight’ I would just end up destroying the landscape or my enemy’s troops by standing on them.

It’s quite interesting and some of the figures are really really well made. Check it out 😀

    While I probably wouldn’t play the games, I think I would have a blast painting the figures.

    I’m going out this weekend to find some old beat up toys to repaint and make awesome.
