View Full Version : Games Workshop Man O' War Timeline

09-10-2011, 22:41
Well, I've incorporated most of the discontinued (Warhammer) GW game releases into other timelines, but Man O' War doesn't really fit elsewhere. And what better time to add this last one than with the release of Dreadfleet? ;)

This is a list I’ve compiled (with help) of Games Workshop’s releases over the years, split by game system. I stress this is a work in progress; it is far from complete or comprehensive. It’s based on a mix of info from these forums, fellow forumites help and my White Dwarf collection. I never collected the specialist games magazines, so there are currently a lot of gaps for those.

I'm sure there will be errors: things mis-categorised as plastic/metal kits, models in the wrong month, and some just plain missing. If you can help out with further info to improve this it would be greatly appreciated :)

Magazines, books, terrain, tools, paints and so on aren’t included: this is focused on models alone.

I hope it might be an interesting or helpful resource for others. Many thanks to Tarax, Tae, Scryer in the Darkness, mrtn, gunmonkey, Ghudra, someone2040, Daniel36, coyote1066, Coach, MarcoSkoll, AsleepByDay, ADF, Balerion and imcdonnell for all their help.

Red = Metal/Resin
Blue = Plastic

Note on *: I would like one day to give this a site of it's own, and as part of that I was to add images of models for easy identification. At the moment that project is firmly on hold for various reasons, but I'm still collecting images here and there. The asterisks mean I have an image for that thing.
