I haven't been to any abroad, but I've been to a fair few around the UK.

Bournemouth
Sheffield
Coventry
Birmingham
Derby
Warhammer World
Oxford
Covent Garden
Burton
Oxford St

Though that's just a few of the top of my head. If I see one when out during the day I'll often pop in just to see the tables/cabinets, but that's only o a few occasions. Though most of the time it's actually been to buy something, often WD.

Check this out:
*Leipzig (1st: buying a Carnifex and an old WD; 2nd: got a left Carnifex leg because the box had only two right; 3rd: buying a techpriest)
*Erfurt (opening, so the usual buy 3, pay 2)
*London (buying a WD)

Impressive.:cool:

Counting Sydney as one for Australia, only one somewhere in London years ago (1990).
I don't think the US had many stores at the time, and certainly none on the west coast when I was there.
- I was about to add - when it was about half the price to buy it direct from a GW store in the UK - but that much hasn't changed in all this time.
We just don't have the option to do so unless we happen to BE there.

Orange, ca, usa
Westminster, ca, usa (battle bunker)
Ontario, ca, Usa
Denver, co, usa (I'm sure this one closed down)
Somewhere in Texas, don't remember the city as I just saw it whilst passing through and popped in.

Never was to impressed with the actual GW stores. The ones I've been to here in the states were all just small stores in malls without gaming room. The battle bunker has gaming room, but not much more than most indie game stores. It also bothers me that the battle bunker is refered to as the "L.A" battle bunker when it is not in Los angeles city nor even Los Angeles County, it's in Orange county. Just like Games day L.A was in Riverside (San Bernadino?) County. I *********** hate L.A (from san diego so it's a give in) and there tends to be this issue with people considering all of Southern California that isn't san diego as L.A..... rant over.

Liffey Street and Blanchardstown (RIP) - Ireland
Oxford Street and Covent Garden - UK
As well as the one (or one of if there's >1) in Paris, Brussels, Luxembourg and a little one somewhere in Virginia (USA) when I was much younger.

Favourite was GW Blanchardstown, which is sadly no longer there. Was my 'local' one in that it was only about 3/4 of an hour drive away, and where I made most of my first purchases in the hobby. Next up Warhammer World hopefully, or a Games Day.

If I remember right, I've visited:
Merry Hill, UK
Birmingham, UK
Northampton, UK
Bristol, UK
Shrewsbury, UK
Amsterdam, NL
Sydney, Aus
Lyon, Fr

Merry Hill was by far the most fun back in the 90's, listening to heavy metal and sword fighting with one of the staff using the 18" range rulers when our lords meet in a challenge.

Berlin, London, Copenhagen, Tokyo.

Each and every time I've entered one, I've fled right away. It always feels like a 40year old nerds moms basement, and the staff is equally void of any social skills.

I'm quite the fan of GWs online customer service however and I find it stellar :)
