Games Workshop has installed a new policy for its retailers that goes into effect today.
GW partnership stores can no longer open products to sell bits. This means that any store with a GW account will not be able to do this. Now the question that needs to be asked....
Is GW going back into bits market? It has been a long time since bits were available from Games Workshop, and it would not surprise me much if they are looking at it, with a sense that more revenue could be garnered from doing this.
Regardless, many very popular bits stores will be feeling the heat. Of course I am sure there are ways around this, but the pressure is on.
