Talking Miniatures - a great back history to Citadel and Games workshop

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!

Sadly too pricey for me.

It's not cheap but I ended up biting the bullet... or, to be fair, the credit card did.
