According to an announcement by the company [PDF], Games Workshop’s profits rose across all segments in the 6 months ending November 27th. Core business operating profit was up 12% from the same period the year before, to £6.5 million. Royalty income increased from £1.0 to £2.6 million, or 260%—this the result of a large payment from THQ related to the launch of Space Marine. Profits rose at GW despite an increase in overheads “due to the creation of a digital development team and new management information system.”

In other GW news, the company settled its lawsuit against Paulson Games but is continuing to pursue litigation against ChapterHouse Studios for alleged copyright infringement (producing conversion kits, add-ons, and accessories for 40K models).
