As you may not know, GW are going to stop all online retailers stocking GW products after Nov 21st unless they have a bricks and mortar store..
We have plans to open a store in 2014, but we are not going to rush this just for one supplier, who also has the most discounted products out there.
(despite having the worst margin)

We have struggled for months now with their ever decreasing range and hugely restrictive and ltd new release policies. This has led to many instances of us having to let customers down.
Combine this with the fact in order for us to compete with the crazy discounting out there, we basically sell GW products at break even if we are lucky.
We have decided to stop, and take all GW off sale as of today.

LM orders for club members will be honoured in the week after release if we can, but if you want a refund/credit instead please let me know..

We will carry on letting club members buy GW till the November deadline, if you have an account and its authorised as a club account, only these accounts will be able to view the GW products on the sight from now on (you must be logged in)..
All club members will get a flat rate of 20% off all plastic models (that are available)
You will only be able to pay cash and collect at the club.
You must pay in advance for your items (at the club) and we will make orders every Tuesday am..

No Extra discounts will be able to be used vs GW purchases, ie points, promo codes, vouchers etc..
We are purely offering this service to you as a club bonus, we do not intend to  lose any money on the service.
Please do any GW orders entirely separate from normal products

This will take a few weeks to update and I will let you know on here when its fully operational..

Very sensible and understandable decision...
In the style of Tom Hale... F*ck Ushabti!!!

We lost money selling GW (or broke even at best) so it actually benefits us, until the crazy discounting stops, I can see many other retailers curtailing their GW stock levels.
Especially now as GW make it very hard for you to order anything in on demand, they want you to have everything in stock, which of course can then really hurt you with the discount war out there...
