Teutonic Nobility
Teutonic Nobility: Everything you need for your railroad and model train hobby interest. Great store with friendly staff.
Alden Almonte (RedJax_Dast)
Alden Almonte (RedJax_Dast): I like coming here for minature model materials. They have alot of railroad stuff.
Cam Smith
Cam Smith: Lots of toys.
Patrick Fitz
Patrick Fitz: This shop is the real deal, seemingly endless inventory, lots of accessories- especially if you're into trains, their stock is deep- and all the supplies to keep your hobby in the groove. I'm a kit-basher and find the hanging racks tremendously satisfying to browse, while paints, cements and thinners are amply stocked. The staff know their stuff and are courteous and that's pure icing on the cake for me. Check them out, give yourself time to browse and ask questions, it's worth it.
Robin McCabe
Robin McCabe: Great stock and staff willing to help
Sft1st
Sft1st: Business is for sale, owner wants to retire.

Marc Vonhebel
Marc Vonhebel: Great selection and service.
Natalie Jones
Natalie Jones: What a wonderful store! It’s packed to the brim with model making and train supplies. I’ve honestly never found a place so we’ll supplied. I work in stop motion animation, so the paints and K&S are perfect for me. I’m from the U.K. and haven’t found UHU glue anywhere but here!I just can’t believe the reviews about rude staff. They were lovely with me.
Ard Arvin
Ard Arvin: Staff aren't just rude, they go out of their way to be confrontational. Too bad, neat store otherwise. Business is for sale.
Chris Astley Home Improvements
Chris Astley Home Improvements: Customer service is non existent here. Condescending even. You could walk into this place with a clown suit and a tiger and they wouldn't bat an eye.I'll take my business elsewhere.
Phil McFadden
Phil McFadden: Absolutely wonderful store run by some incredibly lovely people. Very glad I found this place. Thank you so much!
Terry Lawrence
Terry Lawrence: Still no change- Useless staff with a very limited knowledge. another waste off time thinking things would be different, NOPE! Great Place if you want to stand around and chat. If you know what you want and need help to get it - not likely. If someone is standing there waving an item to purchase it, Stop yacking and help a paying customer.
Ragnar Blackmane
Ragnar Blackmane: Best supply of model trains around
Patrik Marek
Patrik Marek: Owner is amazing guy, gave us lot of food advices, and warned us about some mistakes we did with our selection
Jamie R. Mayden

Jon L
Jon L: For those who love trains, it's an excellent place to go to. Train cars, set pieces,, magazines, it's loaded. However it tries to pack too much in its small location and it's rather difficult to walk around. I think they need a bigger location.
Karl Zawadzki
Karl Zawadzki: An institution and simply the best in Vancouver for model railway things!
Thomas Sloan
Thomas Sloan: Super knowledgeable staff huge selection of products.

Greg Gleason: Lots of awesome products ! Sadly they are price gougers with everything way over priced. I literally searched for items they had in stock online an compared prices as I toured the store. Almost double the price in some cases. Could not find one item that was reasonably priced. 40 min drive and I had seen enough in less the 10 min. Waste of time ! Trust me ! It’s not worth visiting. I will say this , the people were nice. 1 Star !

David
David: Pleasure to do business with, thank you very much.
Chris Nicholson
Chris Nicholson: I'm new to scale models and looking around online just doesn't do it justice. Glad to have found this gem. The owner is fantastic and they have a wide range of years, brands, genera, etc., Love that I can browse the site too for new products before scooting over from the north shore. Can't wait to visit again.

Shawn of the Sheep
Shawn of the Sheep: They have the biggest collection of model cars in BC. You will get what you looking for, old and new. They also have a great website which is updated and quite efficient. I preferred going in to the shop so I can get what I wanted immediately. The owner has a wealth of knowledge and if they don't have what you looking for he will try find it for you.
Saro Ghazarian
Saro Ghazarian: As a car guy, there are some things you just have to have. In my case, I wanted a Canadian edition of an old Mercedes brochure for the car I just purchased. This was the first time I've ever ordered such an item, and my experience from Wilkinson's Automobilia was PHENOMENAL. They not only shipped the item extremely secure and rigid so it didn't fold, the kind folk over there adjusted the shipping cost without me even asking, I'm certain because of my geographic location. This is above and beyond because they didn't have to. I never write reviews, but I just had to share my experience. Looking forward to my next purchase. :)
Fares Abu-Namous
Fares Abu-Namous: I had a great experience at the store. Came in looking for some gifts and Ted was very welcoming and knowledgeable about all the available models. I picked out a model with no box and Ted was more than happy to pack up the model nicely and securely into a display case I purchase for it to be travel safe. Would highly recommend you pass by the shop even for a short browse as the selection of models is mesmerizing!

Jeff Chin
Jeff Chin: Great experience! Ted even offered us coffee. I’ve visited Vancouver many times and this is the first time as a model car collector stopping by his shop. Can’t believe I waited this long to go.

I was impressed with the shop as soon as I walked in. Great selection of RC cars/boats/planes/models etc. so basically any kid/big kids dream shop.Thanks Dave for helping me find my new RC toy. The Traxxas Maxx V2 is just what I’ve been looking for. So great to find a full service/one stop hobby shop.If your kids no longer want to hang out with you.

Hammertime Hobbies: what do users think?
Timm Dapp
Timm Dapp: Friendly staff, everything you're looking for.These guys will most likely have what you need if you're looking for 40k stuff. Especially if it's paints and other supplies. The staff are incredibly friendly and extremely knowledgeable. If you're new, they will go the extra mile to help you out and I like that.Sometimes a hobby store can be a little intimidating for a new hobbyist, but not here. They'll put your mind at ease and help you out. ;)This place is crucial for a budding 40k hobbyist on the north shore. Hammertime have odd hours. However I sympathize since they're such a small and niche store. Check them out instead of searching online and help support a small and niche local business.
Eva TimeLord
Eva TimeLord: This place is great! staff is friendly and extremely cool! would rate it even higher if i could!
T G
T G: Fantastic store! The owner is incredibly friendly and helpful, the store has a diverse selection (e.g., Warhammer, Frostgrave, Starwars, D&D, Battletech), is easy to navigate, and the prices are reasonable. Also has room for gaming.Highly recommend for anyone in the area!
Night Collectibles
Night Collectibles: My go-to store for miniatures.
Jason Berard
Jason Berard: Bring your own mask. It doesn’t say bring a mask anywhere til you walk up the stairs at his store. If it’s that important, put it on your website. I’m buying warhammer when I come in, so minimum purchase is what, $50? So for the sake of the shop not offering a mask and instead asking me to run around the neighborhood looking for one, you have lost my business for good. I support wearing a mask, but we’re out of mandates, so you should be prepared to provide a $0.15 mask to make a a $50 minimum sale. Writing this while extremely disappointed and not bothering to cool down. I barely get free time on holidays and you wasted mine bud. Thanks!
Collin Smith
Collin Smith: Amazing place super friendly and Knowledgeable
tia benedetti
tia benedetti: Very cool gem place, love all the gems
C L
C L: My go-to place for anything Warhammer. Thanks Mike for your great service as always.
Gab Houghton
Gab Houghton: Think of this business more like going through your best friend's attic and finding old treasures. The owner lives here and loves his job, is accommodating and fair even with packaged products - some partially packaged items available for a fairly discounted rate.Good place to play in-house and find small obscure packages that aren't sold anymore.
Noah Chinn
Noah Chinn: Great hidden gem. Send your wargaming love their way.
Ace
Ace: Really awesome owner, very helpful with finding stuff and chatting about the local hobby scene.And the best selection of Star Wars Legion I've found in the GVRD at the moment (Late summer 2021, hopefully this stays consistent).Only critique is that due to such a good selection, I spend more money than I plan when I go in!
Jay Arnold
Jay Arnold: Great local tabletop gaming store. They have a ton of different products and if they don't have want you are looking for they are happy to order something in.
Alex Cherniavskii
Alex Cherniavskii: Came in looking for some paints for one of my projects, showed them a picture of the colours I was looking for, and I was able to quickly find what I was looking for despite not having any idea how to choose coming in.Great to-the-point service. Definitely will come again for my miniature painting needs.
Rob Johnson
Rob Johnson: Simply the best place to get Wargaming and Warhammer products on the lower mainland!
Jamie Thompson
Jamie Thompson: The owner is always responsive and helpful. Willing to recommend a product or order something in if he's not carrying it. Definitely my go to hobby store.
A G
A G: Awesome and friendly
shrillshrimp 200
shrillshrimp 200: The owner is great and is always willing to help you get anything you need for your hobby of choice. It's a small shop but it makes up for it with a big feeling of community. There are two tables for games and it's pretty easy to find someone who is ready to play anytime. It's a great place to learn about your new armies or just play around with new lists. If you are not sure if you want to play just bring something to paint and hang out. They carry alot more than 40k armies and will order in anything else you love to collect.
Brett Thompson
Brett Thompson: Great store and owner. Always has or can get what I need for fair prices.
Stefanija K
Stefanija K: Great selection (and anything Mike doesn't have he can order in for you), friendly owner, room to paint and tables to play on
Sarah Stevenson
Sarah Stevenson: Awesome store!!! The owner is the best, he answered all my questions and helped guide me to the right stuff!! Will definitely be back soon!!!
Ryan McLaren
Ryan McLaren: Decent enough shop, plan to call ahead - I've been burned several times now finding them closed in spite of the posted hours.

Gordon Kelly
Gordon Kelly: Played Heroclixs thete before the cov-19 happened, and have known some of the Heroclixs players for 21 years or more.Played Heroclixs there last Sunday there and it was nice to catch up after cov-19 missing years,also to see new players in the new Heroclixs group.I was sad to hear that the old Heroclixs players I have known for 21 years and 16 years, have moved on or it died out because of the pandemic also the Heroclixs format change after cov-19. But it still nice you see new faces come and go.Played for 21 years sadly had to stop collecting because it's expensive, however, I just come to play my retirement stuff I had in the past for fun.

Julian D
Julian D: Great selection of board games, figures, comics, miniatures, collectibles, tools, paints, you name it. Staff are super friendly as well and always willing to answer questions.

Warhammer: what do users think?
A Sharma
A Sharma: I walked in and was greeted with a smile! I was introduced to the concept, the lore, the models, the paint! It's a candy store for artists! The staff are friendly and happy to teach you how to build a model - which ended up being easier than I expected. I even got a personal one-on-one lesson for painting my new model. The new contrast paints are amazing and make the whole process too easy! Thanks HighGate Team!
Viet Vu
Viet Vu: The staff have always been friendly and the store was always clean for the last two years I've visited. Recently I went in for a preorder that was sold out quickly online. I was put on the preorder list but on the day of the sale there was a mixup unfortunately with how many people were on vs stock available. That said Chris went above and beyond, and was able to resolve this!
megafun forever
megafun forever: The staff are really nice, and helped me find what I need to start playing. The store itself has many options for models, paints, and books, and the community inside the store is really nice.
Ting Fung Yip
Ting Fung Yip: Awesome experience there with introduction to assembling and painting miniatures. Battle honours program great way for people new to the hobby to get the Warhammer experience .
Jazmine Ellis
Jazmine Ellis: Really helpful and kind staff :)
Dave Druid
Dave Druid: They have some great Displays of Figurine Painting but all they have is Warhammer and no other Role Playing Gaming Systems such as the Classic Dungeons & Dragons, Boot Hill or Superworld.
Rai Rai
Rai Rai: Great staff and great store overall. Found everythingnI needed and more.
Blair Buchanan
Blair Buchanan: Stopped by recently as a good friend of mine recently introduced me to WH40K and got me more and more interested in checking it out firsthand. Soon as I walked in, was immediately greeted by Phoenix, who spent the next hour introducing me to WH40K and helped me paint my first model. I cannot emphasize what a fantastic experience I had, I was already interested before I walked in, but absolutely sold after the great experience I had which I feel is a great reflection on the store and the WH40K community. I’ll be doing all my WH related shopping here for the foreseeable future, and for anyone else interested in the hobby and considering learning more, this is the place to come. Thank you for the amazing experience Phoenix!
Josh Manuel
Josh Manuel: I just started to get into this hobby, and this store was very welcoming and not pushy. My friend and I were showed a quick game just to see if we’d get into it or not. Amazing customer service! I did find some other places that was a little cheaper, but I’ll continue to buy through this store due to their customer service alone. :)
John Park
John Park: The guys here are very welcoming, great atmosphere
Timothy Dyksterhuis
Timothy Dyksterhuis: Have come into this location multiple times now and the staff has always been very friendly and willing to give advice or tips on how to play. Phoenix is extremely friendly and patient with all the incessant questions I had about playing 40K for the first time. Everything is fairly pricey but that's just Warhammer for ya.
Caleb Wessels
Caleb Wessels: Greeted immediately by someone named Owen (pretty sure but he gave business card so if it’s wrong I’ll update later haha) who asked us what we were looking for and was SO helpful once we let him know we were new to the game. Not ONLY did he actually help us save money by suggesting tools that would get the job we wanted done for less but talked us into bundles to save money though we were originally going to buy them one by one. He walked us through the factions, the sets, what happened to the old fantasy warhammer (I dabbled as a teen). He even offered a painting and gaming lesson to us though we didn’t have the time he told us we should come back sometime and hang out!Not only all that but he was so pleasant and you could really tell this is something he is passionate about and that he wants to share it with everyone. We will be back for some of those lessons and to buy more haha - much cooler experience than purchasing things online when you get an experience like that I’m glad I came in instead of doing it all on Amazon
Kody otter
Kody otter: Cool store
Alan
Alan: The store is fantastic. Walked in, instantly greeted by friendly and kind-hearted staff members. Was given all the guidance I could ask for, but nobody was overbearing. I came in just to browse, but ended up having a great chat, got some paints, and ended up being informed about upcoming events! I will make a point of returning here as often as I can. Thank you to Phoenix especially for being a gentleman and super helpful with all my questions!
Jaxon Coello
Jaxon Coello: This store is great!It was a little intimidating with all the stock and prices but phoenix was so helpful. He walked me through the entire demo painting and building and taught me a lot of great little tricks and tips as it was my very first model. That made it so much easier to just spend the initial money on the paint and other starting supplies supplies! I am definitely coming back! 😁
Denise C
Denise C: Great place to go to get paint or figures for Warhammer. The customer service here was excellent, the staff are super friendly and helpful and very knowledgeable.
Gab Houghton
Gab Houghton: Great staff, learn how to paint or play, they can assist in tutorials. Cost of product is always expensive but the consistency of models is terrific.
Dani Noriega
Dani Noriega: Was a little intimidated at first by pricing and number of models to choose from but Phoenix was an awesome associate that helped me pick out exactly what I needed to ‘dip my feet’ into the hobby. Hats off to the people working here, store looks great and everyone is super friendly even to first timers.
Kiel Skriver
Kiel Skriver: Well stocked and great advice from friendly staff!
Your Mom
Your Mom: The staff here (Ryan) was fantastic! He knows everything, was amazingly helpful, and treated us like gold. I highly recommend shopping here.
Andrew
Andrew: Thanks to the staff for the warm welcome. I played Warhammer Fantasy 30 years ago and it is nice to see the franchise is still going.My kindergarten age son was with me and the staff provided us with a couple free miniatures. This made the kids day and the minis found themselves into the Lego city at home.
