Retailers To Games Workshop: Stop Poking Me

Also from ICv2, an uncharacteristically long article about a statement signed by 52 retailers, officially compaining about GW policies. I’ve always been surprised that Games Workshop gets away with as much as it does, and, well, I don’t expect anything to change – WotC’s been the target of retailer ire like this before and has typically responded with a big fat yawn. Games Workshop has even less incentive to make substantive changes, given that it, you know, actually makes money and stuff. GW gamers just want nice deals on their models and either exhibit retailer loyalty or don’t – and increasingly, that retailer is a GW-owned store like the brand new one I just visited in San Francisco’s Metreon. It was, um, very clean.
