Games Workshop's double boost, Safestore doubles down, H&T grows

Games Workshop (GAW), the retailer of fantasy miniatures, board games and books, had quite an end to 2016 as the market woke up to a double benefit: strong underlying trading and a big headwind from the falling pound, given the proportion of dollar sales made by the company.
