Games Workshop continues growth

UK-based miniature war-game retailer Games Workshop has continued the stellar growth seen in its last financial year through to its first quarter.

In a trading update the retailer announced its profits and sales for the first quarter were “well above the same period in the prior year”.

Games Workshop said this was driven by sales of popular figurines Gutrot Spume, the Great Unclean One and Festus the Leechlord.

The retailer, which trades from nearly 500 stores in 23 countries alongside mail order and trade channels, is currently rebranding its retail estate to Warhammer.

In its last financial year Games Workshop posted skyrocketing growth, seeing pre-tax profits jump by 126 per cent to £38.4 million.
