A 31-YEAR-OLD man almost went into a branch of Games Workshop but was worried that somebody might see, it has emerged.
Tom Logan spent several minutes gazing longingly at the shop’s window display of detailed, colourfully-painted figurines including orcs, space marines and chaos daemons.
At one point he visibly mouthed the word ‘cool’ while studying a model of a futuristic troop carrier that had been modified to simulate battle damage from enemy soldiers firing their laser guns at it.
Logan then quickly checked whether anyone from work was watching before reaching for the door, only to hesitate when he noticed the long-haired shopkeeper with bad posture was seated around a large table with a group of pubescent boys, rolling dice in a strangely intimidating manner.
He then quickly entered the Greggs next door, pretending that it had been the focus of his interest all along.
However Logan later denied all interest in Warhammer-related products: “I could never get into that sort of thing, it’s for nerds. What sexually mature adult would be into monsters with axes fighting pretend battles for imaginary kingdoms?
“I’m into normal stuff like women, beer and Game of Thrones.”
