SCREWED! well at least for people outside EU...

This rumoured had been circulating for awhile now on warseer forums.

Our greatest fear had come after confirmation by Mr Rob Lane from Maelstrom Games that UK (northern Europe) retailers can only sell GW stuffs to the following countries:
Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Estonia, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom

I'm afraid it is bad news. This is all you need to know in a nutshell: independent retailers supplied from GW Northern Europe cannot sell GW products outside the EU, plus countries like Norway and Switzerland. I will be posting a list of all the countries we will be allowed to sell GW products to on a news article on our website shortly.

I will refrain from commenting about GW's decision, but suffice to say that I am very sad for all of you Rest of the World customers - and for our own business, of course. However, we're offering you an 18% off UK RRP voucher for all Games Workshop products until the 30th of May - check out our webstore for details.

I would like to thank you all for your support, now and in the future. And remember - the wargaming world does not revolve around Games Workshop's products, so I'll still be seeing you all for our very own BaneLegions as well as Hordes and Warmachine and suchlike!

1 piece of good news is Maelstrom games offering 18% discount from today till 31st May 2011 on all GW products, well last chance to get all the stuffs you ever hope of getting cheaper. 

Goodbye 18% UK RRP Voucher
But it's a cracking goodbye! From today until midnight (GMT) on the 30th of May all our customers will be able to use a 18% off UK RRP discount voucher code on Games Workshop products only, so you stock up on all of those items you'll need for your Warhammer, Warhammer 40,000 or Lord of the Rings armies - and of course all your paints and brushes!

The voucher will work on pre-orders and, crucially, you'll still earn Moneyback - although tiered discounts are disabled when using a voucher of course.

Your voucher code is: GW-ROW

I will be making multiple cluster bombs orders LOL, Starting today. The rest of the guys are making their last orders also after I told them the news.
The pocket money given by the gov does come to good use. I'm not sure if they want to combine orders but since maelstrom only need 10pounds min order and the 18% works for any amt.
