About War Head

The War Head crew is passionate about Warhammer 40K, Classic Warhammer Fantasy Battle, historical wargames and visual arts. The entrepreneur, author and founder of the site is a wargamer whose interests also include cinematography, literature, chips and the National Hockey League.

War Head is a miniature wargames retailer, a hobby blog and a tight-knit team. Our website is a way for us to convey the passion and excitement of our hobby adventures, whether it's 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 recently upgraded their assortment with retro video games such as popular NES and SNES titles. Poromagia is also amazingly active in arranging tournament events, see for yourself!

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 entrepreneur's labor. It's a service from players to players and something we're proud to be associated with.

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!
