Wargames Foundry Currency Exchange

I just got a surprising email from Wargames Foundry, the contents of which are below:

Dear Sir/Madam,

While you may not have noticed yet, things are changing at Foundry and we are the middle of a process of restructuring and reorganisation. This will include bringing back some old ranges and reintrodcuing some old packs that were inexplicably removed from others. This will all take some time but we want to return to being the company we once were. As a symbol of this we have reintroduced the English Civil War and Thirty Years War ranges.

Although some of these things will take some time to put into place, one immediate change we have made is to make sure that those ordering from outside of the UK will pay the same price as everybody else. It was a particularly bad policy that we have rectified as of today, no matter where you live in the world you will not pay more than our domestic customers.

Watch out for further changes in the future.

yours faithfully,

Neil Littlewood

This is, frankly, an astounding reversal of their previous policy of charging whatever they felt like for non-UK buyers, and results in sizable discounts for those buyers.  [For example, using the exchange rate of £1 to $2 US when the actual rate was closer to 1:1.6]

Now I wonder about getting VAT off too...
