Games Workshop fulfils fantasies

Fantasy game specialist Games Workshop has dispelled some of the economic gloom after it announced yesterday that profits had leapt by more than a quarter in the year to 3 June, on sales up 6.4 per cent to £131m. Popular model series like Forge World and its Black Library fantasy books helped drive pre-tax profits up from £15.3m to £19.5m in the period, just 18 months after a profit warning.
