    1.Games workshop
    a.History
    i.Founded
    ii.Games created
    iii.
    b.People/ Branch Companies
    i.Artists
    ii.Forge world
    iii.White dwarf
    c.Current/ where they are now
    i.Forums
    ii.Me personally
    iii.What they are doing to make the games better

    Thank you SOO much in advance!

    You may wish to include a general definition of what a tabletop miniature game is in your introduction.

    You also may want to include an section on motivation.

    Also, I'd add a section for the gaming and hobby aspect of Tabletop gaming as well.

    People don't immerse themselves in very expensive hobbies for no particular reason, now do they ?

    Make sure you stick to what your title is asking. Simply putting down everything you know about GW will make for a poor paper

    Also remember Black Library, as they do AT LEAST as much for the GW games, as forgeworld do!
    Also I agree with stonehambey! You should treat it like any other paper.

    Thanks for the replys, I forgot about the black lib., I'll have to check that out since I have yet to be there.

    I'm not trying to spill everything out about GW. I'm just trying to make a paper explaining how it's changed the society as we know it. I may also put in a bit of their financial history, from here:

    You may wish to delve into the background a bit. After all, it is the rich and devloped background universe (s) that set GW games apart from the pack and attract a large part of its fanbase

    I'd say you should really include more about how Games workshop has affected society (and yourself), as that's what the paper is really all about. From what I can see in your outline, there is very little about that, and alot just about GW. You only need a small section about GW, no more than half your paper I'd say, and the rest should be about their effect on society (and you). Otherwise you'll get marked down for not sticking to what the paper is about.

    Just a thought

    Here's a link to the GW Group for investors.

    Much more informative than the actual GW site about impact in real terms rather than information about the games.

    Click here, linky linky.
