Warhammer Fans Can Celebrate Its 40th Birthday With Cool Stamps

Britain’s Royal Mail issues stamps to celebrate the game’s anniversary

As far as hobbies go, collecting little plastic soldier men can be a hard sell at the ‘cool’ convention. Collecting stamps? Doubly so. But baby, I did both – and I’m cool as heck.

People with any knowledge of the Warhammer franchise likely recognise these artworks – but that first one in particular is a hard hitter. It’s the original Rogue Trader artwork, done by freelance illustrator and palaeoartist (meaning he draws DINOSAURS!) legend John Sibbick. It’s iconic in every way, and lives rent free in the head of every discerning lover of Warhammer art.

Even people who are not big Warhammer fans have likely seen some of the unreal artwork that marinates across the community – and these stamp sets are a celebration of all that awesome talent.
