While I can't really defend GW's seeming inability to anticipate demand for AT products, they are guessing with information that's 9 months old with production and shipping times...

The problem from our perspective as customers isn't so much that they keep consistently failing to properly estimate demand, that's just an annoyance. The problem is their response to that failure is seemingly completely random and we never get told what it's going to be.

Will they reprint the product? Sometimes, but they won't tell us either way, or they will tell us but not until enough time has passed that a lot of folk have gone ebay hunting and paid scalperscum over the odds for them. Will they put a high-res print-ready version up on WHC for free? Sometimes, again they won't tell us unless and until they put up the article. Will they just let it vanish into the ether, never to be mentioned again? Yup, that too.

This has been a consistent enough problem that by now they should have developed a policy to deal with it, and "make more up-front" is only one possible solution. They could set up their contract with the printers they use so as to give them an option to do another run at shorter notice. They could do exactly what they did way back in the day with plastic casting and buy up a small British printing business for the expertise and initial machinery and bring their printing - at least for cardstock products - in-house, and build in some capacity for production surges on products they underestimate demand for. They could carry on exactly as they are ordering only small print runs, but acknowledge openly that will be the case, that the print run is just for people who really like physical doodads, and commit to putting the high-res print files up for free as soon as the initial run sells out, in every case. Hell, they could sell us the digital version, so long as it's a standard option.

I need to acquire plastic Skavenslaves, can you help?
I have a blog now, evidently. Featuring the Alternative Mordheim Model Megalist.

"Your society's broken, so who should we blame? Should we blame the rich, powerful people who caused it? No, lets blame the people with no power and no money and those immigrants who don't even have the vote. Yea, it must be their fething fault." - Iain M Banks
"The language of modern British politics is meant to sound benign. But words do not mean what they seem to mean. 'Reform' actually means 'cut' or 'end'. 'Flexibility' really means 'exploit'. 'Prudence' really means 'don't invest'. And 'efficient'? That means whatever you want it to mean, usually 'cut'. All really mean 'keep wages low for the masses, taxes low for the rich, profits high for the corporations, and accept the decline in public services and amenities this will cause'." - Robin McAlpine from Common Weal

There is talk (not sure whether its reality though) that that is one of the things they're planning for their new factory space, being able to do at least some printing in house

Probably December at this rate, knowing our luck...

I suppose it will release alongside a repacked Questoris set.
