And Now in Financial News......

The NZD/GBP exchange rate has fallen 10% from its highs . Now it only needs to fall another 20-25% before GW’s local prices start to match those of the UK based internet retailers such as Wayland Games (currently offering free shipping).

This pricing disconnect has interesting hobby effects. Our local GW Manager is rumoured to have said “Every time I send a person up to the Warlords, I lose a customer”.

I must admit I have some sympathy with his position but by any measure a 30-40% local pricing premium is ridiculous.

  1. Considering that wargamers by are pretty good at crunching those numbers, is it a reflection of that sympathy that I have not seen a "for rent" sign on the doors of our local?
