About War Head

The War Head crew is passionate about Warhammer 40K, Classic Warhammer Fantasy Battle, historical wargames and visual arts. The author and the founder of the site is a wargamer whose interests also include modern military re-enactment, cinematography, literature, chips and the United States.

War Head is a miniature wargaming site, but also a tight-knit team. Our website is a way for us to convey the passion and excitement of our hobby adventures, be it a scenery workshop, a long-planned battle or an exciting tournament journey. War Head is all about sharing experiences, interacting with fellow hobbyists and giving something back to the community - and to the dear hobby of ours.

War Head organizes tournament events, hobby meetings, participation battles and does commission work in painting single figures and armies as well as creating wargaming terrain for the use of companies and individual gamers. Our hobby experiences, work in progress pics and battle reports are documented here on our website.

Most of this blog is in Finnish but we are happy to discuss hobby matters in English as well. Easiest way to contact the crew is to leave a comment below or to email us at contact@gowarhead.com! You can also follow us on our Facebook channel - the content is entirely in english.

Associates and partners

Poromagia is a rising star, coordinating their retail operation through the popular webstore and a colourful store location in Pasila. Specialising in Magic the Gathering and other Trading Card Games along with a great selection of traditional boardgames, Poromagia has chosen to expand their range with Games Workshop miniature wargames. With loads to offer for active gamers in the form of gaming space, events and competitive pricing, Poromagia is War Head's prime associate and we are thrilled to be deployed to work with their wargaming events.

Puolenkuun Pelit is a vivid and dynamic gaming retailer chain and we have been lucky to get to work with them in the past. By the opening of the Puolenkuun Pelit Tampere we have regrouped and have good friends among their staff. Tampere has a great hobby scene with loads of talent and excitement and War Head hopes to participate and contribute in the local circles through the city's best gaming store. Our joint operations with PKP include the Operation Arrowhead, which aims to promote the artistic side of the wargaming hobby!

Oh My Game is something that springs out of a love for the hobby. We were delighted to hear the news when our former co-worker Supi told us he had decided to start his own retail company. His long-time fondness for the universe of gaming both on screen and on the tables is a strong foundation for the store and Oh My Game's presence in Kauppakeskus Myyrmanni is an impressive fruit of the young entrepreneurs' labor. It's a service from players to players and it's also something we're proud to be associated with.

Sotakone Miniatures is our latest associate, a young pioneer in the Finnish wargames retail scene. Sotakone specializes in alternative miniature manufacturers and offers a wide selection of characteristic and distinctive models from several smaller producers. Their selection is well worth checking out, as uncommon manufacturers such as The Russian Alternative might be inspiring surprises for many! Adding some model variety and character to your army was never easier and these guys are keen to deliver.
Head Hunter Store is a whirlwind of amazing craftsmanship and imagination. It offers a selection of custom-made and hand-finished statues, prop replicas and dioramas of movie, game and comic icons. When not amidst another crazy modelling project, Head Hunter is constantly on the road presenting their latest stuff in events and exhibitions. The manager (and our good friend) Dean can also be visited in his inspiring studio-store location in Pasila. Check out his website for the unique products and the events calendar!

Mygamestore has been our partnership store for the longest period and War Head has made it's mark in their present and past store locations in Stadi, Tapiola and Porvoo. Majority of our most memorable terrain projects have been commissioned by Mygamestore and we have organized several hobby campaigns and events for their shop locations. More than Pelikauppa!
