Fantasy miniatures maker Games Workshop has pencilled in a healthy rise in first-half sales and profit as it hailed the performance of a key product.
The Nottingham-based firm has stores across the country, including an outlet in Norwich's Westlegate.
The company said trading has continued in line with expectations in the six months to December 2, with sales set to come in 13% higher at £124m.
Operating profit is set to nudge up from £38.8m to £41m.
The results were helped by the continued popularity of tabletop game Warhammer, which Games Workshop said is in 'great shape'.
