How we helped

Games Workshop is the largest and most successful hobby miniatures company in the world, with its major brands, Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000. The business was founded in 1975 by three game fanatics, in in 1991 we backed Tom Kirby the Group’s Chairman in a management buyout. During our investment the group refocused on a younger, more family-oriented market, which met with significant success and enabled the group to expand internationally into new territories. In 1994 the company was floated, and since then has turned into a great public market success, with a current market capitalisation of £3.8bn (as at September 2021).
