Get the Whole Family Warhammer-ing This Christmas

Christmas is a time for coming together as a family, and here at Warhammer Community, there’s nothing we love more than sharing our hobby with our kids and young relatives. Whether it’s building, painting, or playing, there’s something to delight hobbyists of every age.

Here are some of our top picks for getting the kids around a table on these cold winter nights for a spot of wholesome family fun.

Warhammer Board & Card Games

A perfect introduction into the Warhammer universe, these easy-to-learn games provide hours of entertainment packed into a comprehensive boxed set.

Co-operate to fight back the howling Ork hordes in Space Marine Adventures: Rise of the Orks, partake in some fantasy football in Blitz Bowl, or indulge their competitive streak as bands of intrepid adventurers clash in Warhammer Underworlds: Direchasm.

It wouldn’t be a Games Workshop box without oodles of miniatures in it though, so it’s a good job each game is stuffed like a stocking full of models just waiting to be painted. In fact, they make an especially great place for your kids to start their own collection.

Building Together

What’s a poor hobbyist to do with so many kits and not enough time? Enlist the kids to build them with you! 

Once they’ve discovered their love for all things Warhammer, pick up a Combat Patrol or Start Collecting! box for a wide assortment of miniatures to build, or dive into the full Warhammer 40,000 experience with one of our fantastic starter sets including everything you need to start battling in the 41st Millennium.

Painting Together

If you’ve got a bit more time to spend in the warm indoors, painting with the kids is a rewarding experience that not only teaches care and attention but is also a great way to brush up (sorry) on your skills too. Painting is one of the most fun and rewarding parts of the Warhammer hobby, and there’s tons of inspiration to be had on our Citadel Colour website.

For those truly creative souls, we’ve put together our comprehensive guide to getting started with Warhammer 40,000, packed full of tips and tricks to get them off the ground. It even comes with two miniatures for them to practice their skills on.

Dive into Warhammer Adventures

Tuckered out from all that hobbying? Wind down with an exciting – not to mention child-friendly – story from the annals of Warhammer Adventures. These action-packed tales of adventure in the worlds of Warhammer 40,000 and Warhammer Age of Sigmar are the perfect way to introduce a new generation to the games we all love. Best of all, the fifth books in each series are coming out soon in 2021.

When you’re ready to take your kids on the next step into the Warhammer world, the best place to start is the Warhammer Alliance website.

Warhammer Alliance is our way of supporting schools and youth groups in bringing the hobby to kids of all ages, through free programs and fun activities for every skill level. If they’re in the UK, Scouts can even earn their Model Makers badge!
