The Hobby Stop

I wanted to give another shout out to local gamers regarding The Hobby Stop. About a year I became aware of them, visited but hadn’t been back again before Saturday (they are on the other side of town to me).
The Hobby Stop is a Wellington hobby store located in Kilbirnie that sells a wide variety of wargaming products. As well as the popular manufacturers such as Games Workshop, Battlefront, Wyrd and Privateer Press, they also have a great range of hobby products including scenic and paints.
This is Wellington’s only independent hobby shop that has a focus on wargaming products. As such I hope it succeeds. Certainly when I went in on Saturday I was able to pick up modelling supplies –Woodland Scenics Straw and Revell Plastic Glue – as well as the latest White Dwarf Weekly.
They have a permanent 10% off all Games Workshop products so go part way to mitigating the discount obtainable from offshore purchases.
The address is:

And you can get them by telephone on 027 318 22 66

  2. Yup, have had nothing but good experiences with the Hobby Stop.

  3. Peter, I'd like to talk to you about your fantastic rankings system. The guys at WWPD would like to do something similar for the US since Rankings HQ is going away. Can you shoot me an email at I'd appreciate it!
