Black Friday (the day after Thanksgiving) is coming and with it sales at many of of our favorite vendors. Rather than clog the board with notices I thought this would be a good place to keep them together.

The War Store's Black Friday sales has been an annual tradition for me, it's usually an extra 5% off. Not sure if GW will be included this year with its restricted return to online sales but we'll see. Even if not there's plenty of Reaper and other stuff out there I want.

Wayland's is on right now. It's fething sad. Been trying to shop for the last 90 minutes, have managed to get a few things into my shopping cart. Can't actually load "page 2" of any search results, of course.

I have heard of the massive levels of incompetence at Wayland but to not pay for extra bandwidth on a BF sale is approaching new levels of mental ineptitude. Site's been broken since they started the sale according to Facebook, and they have been "looking into it", but calling the hosting company would apparently be too much work

What a lovely post.

It is not bandwidth related. Thought traffic levels are extremely high the site and hosting is scaled to cope with it, however there is a fault and we are investigating.

As a long time customer who has spent an inordinate amount of money through ya'll (about £1500 in the last 18 months) it's incredibly frustrating that it is actually impossible right now to give you more money. There's a significant chance that I just won't, at this point, because my morning in the office was spent trying to give you money but now I've got actual work to do and no more free time to wait for the website to maybe load maybe.

Are there any deals that come close to the Miniature Market insane deals from 4 years ago or so? The last couple of a Black Fridays were just disappointing.

I can assure you that we are just as eager to resolve the issue. We use a fully managed and expensive dedicated server infrastructure. The load today though high is not anything the primary server cannot handle. The hosts and my guys have been investigating since the issue occured and are trying fixed as I type. I hope they will have the site stable soon but until we know the cause we won't be sure.

Hah! Yep, that's what I said, as well as "it's incredibly frustrating that it is actually impossible right now to give you more money."

Explain to me how customer loyalty is a bad thing. Go ahead, take your time. You have the entire history of the free market to argue against, so this should be good.



Not saying loyalty is a bad thing, just pointing out that how much money or time a customer has spent at a store is absolutely irrelevant when dealing with technical issues, yet people seem to think that is some sort of magic phrase that will get them better service.

I had heard the exact same line used on a colleague this morning. Yes, we appreciate the business, but yelling the phrase at someone is not conducive to fixing the register glitch.

They've said they're working to resolve the issue, but you still felt the need to come on here and insult them. Please tell me how that helps anything. All it does is piss off the company who is trying to fix the issue and make you look like an donkey-cave. They want your money, but currently something is getting in the way and they are trying to fix it. Do you understand that super simple concept?

I haven't seen any insanity like that in a long time - certainly the levels of discounts but not at that quantity (I think I placed 4 or 5 orders in a row during that MM sale). The Asmodee sale this year had several games at over 90% off (like the entire Tide of Iron collection for under a hundred bucks basically).

The entire North American retail landscape has changed in the last few years, with most companies now doing "Black Friday" deals that last a week or two, and the overwhelming majority of "Black Friday" deals being offered online as well. I got a Black Friday deal last Friday on a Canon lens for my gal. I mean look at this thread in particular, with companies launching sales early or just straight up coupon codes that last a week or two. Why compete for one day sales when it's more profitable to spread them out over a week or two (and multiple pay periods, hah)


Automatically Appended Next Post:
Gamecraft Miniatures www.gcmini.com

We have issued a coupon code that will get you 20% off your entire purchase when you place it before the end of November and use the code ANYTIME when you check out.
This is a one-time use per customer code.
This code cannot be combined with other discounts of coupons.
Offer expires at midnight on November 30th 2017.

So, enjoy your holiday with your family and shop for discounts anytime in the next 11 days.

My issue is that 20% off of an item that can usually be found for 20% or maybe just 15% off isn't very exciting. But If I can also snag a dozen older items for 80+% off and get free shipping to boot, I become more interested. But I almost never see that any more. Now it pays to wait for an Amazon Marketplace seller to finally give a decent discount on an item with Prime shipping. The local FLGS's discounts are decent enough to reduce the feeling of pressure from online behemoths who have grown too comfortable, like MM and TWS.


Maybe FFG will have enough clearance items to justify their ridiculous shipping. Other than that...I guess I'll add money to some Kickstarter pledge manager maybe?

Wayland appear to be working again now but the 30% off Knight Models Batman range has been replaced by 30% off a single model (Superman) which is disappointing. The rest are back to the usual 10% discount.

Check back tomorrow, we had to remove some of the categories as we were wary of overselling whilst we were having site issues and stock levels might not have been updating correctly.

Hoping to find a table of pre-painted Infinity terrain this sale season. Hexagon Mill did a good bundle discount last black friday, but they've gone radio silent for the past 11 months so I'm wondering if that'll resurface...

Do you mean terrain made specifically for Infinity? If not, there is a Battle Systems KS going on now that should provide a lot of science fiction terrain.
