I don’t follow why this would apply to Cursed City and none of their other products.Are you so sure?
According to this video, it might have to do with Brexit...
Nice job with the white on the Comguard Wolverine. The black and red really pops on the Griffin too. Like the bases, the foliage looks nicely scaled with the mechs.
Unless they’re getting their books printed at Belmont Press because they suck.If it means more companies stop getting things made in China and make them in the UK instead that’s a good thing.
I believe Brexit actually mucked up exporting to everyone as before every other country just complied with the EU rules but post Brexit every country has had to set up a new trading regime specifically for the UK.Even if that is true, which it may be, surely the result of Brexit would only be an export tariff to EU, rather than globally.
When mentioned in the video, it surprised me that 70% of their cardstock is printed in China. This might explain why it was difficult to get stuff here in these United States pre-pandemic and extremely difficult post pandemic. I never encountered this scarcity issue in the 90s, when living in the UK, and don't recall it in the late 90s and in the '00s in the US. I hope someone's regretting treating the US manufacturing facility as a tax right off and eventually shutting it down.The theory goes that while it doesn’t cost GW anything to import products from China, it does cost them to export it back out of Britain.
Supposedly if it’s not at least 70% made in the UK then it gets hot with an export tariff.
Don’t know how true that is though.
Good luck with that...Why would it possibly be a Brexit related issue? GW manufacture all their UK stock in either the UK or China.
EDIT: Seems on further inspection it could be down to tariffs on goods from China. Good. If it means more companies stop getting things made in China and make them in the UK instead that’s a good thing.
local game store here in Albany New York was supposed to get around 30 copies...they did not get all 30 but we're charged for all of them. I guess the owner is going through a real nightmare
It seems highly probable but isn't official as far as I understand it. Thinking seems to go:I heard there will be another edition of Age of $igmar in 2021, is this true?
Which way?Hopefully this will end up being like shadow wars and they'll release mordheim after
Is the second one kill team?Which way?
A Specialist Games product either set in the old world or AoS which comes as a boxed set with only some plastic war bands in and some cardstock, which releases it’s rules quarterly but makes them all obsolete within a year before releasing a whole load of Hardback books and then after another year a massively expensive box with all new stuff before moving on to making all the previous warband books obsolete again in favour of more Hardback books?
A main line product which is released in AoS with a rebundling of previously released models and a whole load of new fancy scenery but it’s only available for a limited period of time and it’s warband faction accessories are available for a limited time too until they release a new core box which is also rebundled models but a lot less scenery than before for a similar price until it too is unavailable until a third box comes out which has newer models but f-all scenery for a similar price as the previous two?
In both cases any cards produced will be available for about 20 minutes online and a lottery in an FLGS.
In some ways y’know, I think I’d rather they didn’t bother.
Numerous articles on WarCom have made reference to "the end of the soul wars" which is what this edition of AoS has been centred/set around lore-wise.
