Back in August I visited Stockholm and Helsinki. I was off to Helsinki for Worldcon, the World Science Fiction Convention, and went to Stockholm on the way, because why not? I’d always wanted to visit.
Not only did I fall in love with Stockholm, but I started learning the language. (Hej och välkommen till alla våra svenska tittare!). No visit to another country would be complete without a visit to the local Games Workshop.
The guys in Stockholm were so friendly, and happy to show me round in perfect English. (I hope next time I’m there we can speak in Swedish). They showed me some of the incredible models they have there and let me take some pictures to show you all. They have not one, but three Golden Daemon winners (It may have been four, apologies for forgetting!), take a look:

Unfortunately, despite Games Workshop Helsinki being literally next door to my hotel, it was closed Saturday afternoon when I went for a look around. Apparently shops in Helsinki close earlier on Saturdays.
However, my Dad did go back on Sunday (while I was at Worldcon) to get some pics for me:
