GW news

Everyone's favorite company, Games Workshop, has decided to restrict UK retailers from selling outside of the EU, so that means no more cheap figures sent abroad to folks like me.  This is particularly important for those in Australia or NZ, who pay ~40% more for the same figures.  They may be able to buy from the US, or get their packets sent to a UK freight forwarder.

On top of that, the rumor about GW switching to resin may be true, and of course with an accompanying price increase.  Resin figures interest me very little, since my (limited) experience with resin is that it is more brittle, flexible, and overall less durable than metal or polystyrene.  Increased prices mean I will continue my streak of buying no GW metal figures, which is a shame, because there are some that I really love, and would like to get.
