Games? What Games?

GW Investor report is out - http://investor.games-workshop.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/2013-14-Press-statement-final-website.pdf

This will get pored over and torn to pieces on all the usual boards but for me the following is the really interesting part and it speaks volumes.

In about 3491 words (depending upon how you count it, including titles etc.) Kirby says the word "miniature" (or "miniatures") thirteen times.

Outside of the title "Games Workshop" and one dismissive reference to computer games, the word "game" (or "games") is never mentioned.


  1. Well, since their 'games' haven't been much but a way to push the toys for a long time now I suppose it's no surprise.

    1. True dat, but I really didn't expect it to be so obvious by it's absence in what is probably the only communication shareholders ever receive from them.

    2. Maybe they figure it's right there in the name of the company... and that should be good enough?

    3. If an automobile manufacturer named Auto Forge spent 3400 words telling you all about tires and seat covers and never mentioned the Autos that should make you wonder about the quality of their cars.

  2. To be honest, it's got to the stage now that I'm impressed they are still with us.
