Graham McNeill

Graham McNeill is a game developer for Games Workshop. He was born in Glasgow, Scotland and studied architecture and then building surveying at the University of Strathclyde and Glasgow Caledonian University from 1989 – 1996. In 1996 he started work in an architects’ office designing new flats and commercial properties, until he saw an advertisement for a writer in the December 1999 copy of White Dwarf.

In February 2000, Graham started work for Games Workshop as a staff writer for games development, writing articles for White Dwarf and army-specific books. In May 2000 he started writing for the Warhammer 40,000 team, but has also kept up writing articles for White Dwarf. Graham has been heavily involved working on codexes, especially Warhammer 40,000 Codex: Tau (Chambers et al., 2001) between late 2000 and June 2001.

Since a promotion from staff writer to games developer, he has written Warhammer 40,000 Codex: Witch Hunters (McNeill et al., 2003) and Warhammer 40,000 Codex: Space Marines (Chambers, 2004).
