Just finished reading this. Excellent history of Citadel / Games Workshop from the miniatures point of view... missing a few people but brought back lots of memories of good times from those halcyon days. I was a mere sales assistant in the Manchester shop in the early/mid 80's but at least I was in charge of miniatures and got to order off John Stallard... had some great conversations and I'm sure he nicked all my ideas for future Citadel ranges 🙂
You can pick a copy up from Amazon here (link opens in a new page to Amazon)
The book itself is two softback volumes in a hardcover storage sleeve. Great for the bookshelf. You really need to read the interviews with the Perry Twins, Rick Priestley and Alan Merrett. God alone knows what they've all forgotten over the years and how many sculpts will be hanging around somewhere having never been cast up...
Let me know what you think!

I was passed this lovely little mini that has appeared on a mould. Problem is we don't know where it has come from? Does anyone recognise it? Personally it looks like one of Bob's sculpts however I have been wrong before...
Edit; identified by Jacob Fathbruckner - it's a dwarf from the Ral Partha box set 'Durin's Doom'. Thanks Jacob!
(and it is a Bob Olley sculpt!)
Some of the range is pictured here;
Any missing images - let me know if you have them and I'll get them posted for posterity on the WIKI.

I have to admit that I haven't been to Partizan in a few years... my last one, in fact, was at the old Kelham Hall venue... insert sheepish grin etc. I travelled with a view to spending little to no money, due to that being my current budget, and left my hound in the charge of my daughter. It's a two hour drive over to Newark Showground but it's quite a pleasant one on a Sunday generally. For once the satnav guided me well... it's been known to take me on interesting routes over the years however I turned it off once the Partizan signs appeared (and it did try to take me down a circuitous journey just before I stopped using it)...
The car parking was plentiful and free... always a good thing.
