We started this book with a very clear idea of the story that we wanted to tell, ie how our fledgling games company was set on a road that would ultimately become the multi-national business that it is today with a market capitalisation of over £1 billion on the London Stock Exchange! We began our journey in 1975, and whilst the major events are easy to recall, the details require a lot of research and fact-checking.
Since it is so important to tell the real story of the first years of Games Workshop, we have spent much more time than planned verifying our own recollections. We also wanted to share as many photos and images as possible and we have gone to great lengths to find images from sources other than our own, and we are delighted to say that there will be over 200 photos and images which will appear in the book.
Most importantly, we are pleased to say that the bulk of the writing is now done and we are now in the final editing/revision stage. We hope to hand over the manuscript to Unbound in November for publication in due course. Apologies again for the delay. Dice Men will appear 45 years after Games Workshop was founded, and we hope the wait for the book will have been worth it.
