My impression is that these days the mail order and phone staff are little more than the same as GW store managers. Which means most of the time the information they have is the same information that is on the GW webstore. Ergo they don't go and ask the web-store manager or the production staff for updates. They just tell you what the webstore tells them. Which IN THEORY should work because its tied to the Warehouse inventory system.


However in practice it doesn't work. GW makes changes sometimes appearing to change on the fly which throws up confusion; furthermore GW has an error on the webstore (The FW side has it appearing a LOT) where for some reason out of stock items get shown as discontinued. IT also doesn't help that any product change results in a new product code which means the old product has to be replaced in the system - which means the old gets discontinued. Sometimes you can catch the transfer when one is discontinued and the new is there; but often as not the discontinued is removed and its some tim before its returned.


Basically there's a communication breakdown between actual production staff and front-end support staff.

Yep, precisely that. Then add some employees just straight up making things up to cover their ignorance for maximum chaos.

It might not be them making stuff up, but trying to work within a system to provide an answer to a customer based on the company's general position whilst not being allowed/able to contact the relevant staff.

Part of this is likely just GW growing in scale and size. It's easy to ask production when there's only a dozen emails a day; but when you deal with hundreds suddenly it becomes a problem and someone higher up says "ok stop asking production you're interrupting their work".


Again in theory as GW has most of its company in-house they should really be on top of this - but they aren't. I think part of it is the hyper compartmentalising that GW does to protect its production secrets on what is coming and what is changing. Which has kind of always been there and got worse over the years - esp under Kirby and perhaps also as a result of dealings with WB and Lord of the Rings.

Then add that GW does discontinue terrain sets at random and without warning or explanation, and is it any wonder that people panic bought them?

Measures which drives Anargrin to wonder; does the ends, justify the means?

Who sells Rhino sides without the tracks? I mean OK it was clear from the picture and description that tracks are not included and I should have noticed but still...

I mean who buys a trackless Rhino side? Who buys Rhino-less tracks?

An easy fix with thin plastic card but c'mon!

Uh anyway I got 3 bare bones rhinos, coming in around $20 a pop, no hatches or extras which is fine since they'll be chaosed to hell and back. Fingers crossed this ends up looking good and not just a Rhino with random bits stuck to it...

Raises hand....

Why? Because sometimes you need to refurbish something.
EX:
Last year a local shop took in a sorry ass SoB collection.
It was a dirty, poorly painted, & poorly assembled mess. All the vehicles were missing bitz - including their tracks.
This player had slapped enough together to get playing, played a # of games, and then decided against 40k.
Then they left it sit in an open box on a garrage shelf for a year+ collecting dirt, never finishing the models & losing bitz. Including all the tracks apparently.
Then last year they needed some $.
The shop paid them pennies on the dollar.
I paid the shop dimes on the dollar for the force, invested around another $50 or so + some time (time was plentiful summer 2020....) and flipped it for a decent profit.

I just got my 2 boxes and they're all banana bent. Trying hot water now.

EDIT: Fixed 2, destroyed 2, not touching the rest. Turns out there's maybe a 2 degree window just below boiling at which the plastic is pliable, go over and it's going to warp like mad and get stuck that way.

I'm in Germany for work and stopped in a local store. They had a copy of Five Parsecs From Home so I picked it up to check out.

Maybe a solo game is something I can get on the table.
