News

The Rules for Warhammer 40,000 are about to change.  Warhammer 40 000 is our most popular game and miniatures range and we hope you are as excited about what will happen in the upcoming months and the sales opportunities it presents as we are.

We understand that you might currently have some products in stock that will no longer contain the most up to date rules when we make these changes later in the year. One of the benefits of being a member of the Stockist Programme is that affected products that are a part of a Stockist Range you have signed up to, are covered under a range guarantee (up to minimum stock level).

We have attached a list of the affected products in the Stockist Ranges that are covered by the range guarantee. For the full list of all products affected, don’t hesitate to ask your account manager on your next call.

Boxed Games

Our Boxed Games are great products, many of them offering enormous value for money, for instance the Horus Heresy Burning of Prospero boxed set includes $325/€254/£195 of miniatures, but is only $150/€125/£95 (not to mention all the other great material in there).

To help you sell these in your store, we have placed on the ‘Activity Support’ section of the website numerous additional materials originally published in White Dwarf and elsewhere for some of these titles, which you can use to promote these products.

Blood Bowl

Games Workshop’s release of the much loved classic Blood Bowl has been a phenomenal success, and since release in November 2016 demand has been so high that we’ve made multiple print runs to keep it in stock.

The next step for this great product is continue that success this year by bringing out more great products and some awesome support.

Whilst Games Workshop’s own stores refocus in the new year on recruiting new hobbyists through Age of Sigmar and Warhammer 40,000; a continuing stream of new product will be released to our trading partners and on Games Workshop’s own online stores.

Latest to be released is the Dwarf Human and the Ogre Big Guy.   Through February and March we ran our exciting OP program, Blitzmania, an online based Blood Bowl League focused around participating trading partner stores. From March onwards we’ll be releasing yet more (soon to be announced) products for Blood Bowl.

Contact your account manager to find out more.
