In June of this year, GW published a new set of trade terms that their trade customers must adhere too, in these terms was a clause that effectively meant that, Wayland Games would have been punished for any advance reporting of any GW release by Beasts of War Ltd (Article 9.4) despite Wayland Games not providing any such information to Beasts of War, and despite both companies being separate.
As a result we feel there is no option but to abide by terms set out by GW.
I’m as much a GW fanboy as the next guy, and I try to give them the benefit of the doubt in many of the questionable moves they’ve made over the last couple of years, despite how they treat the wider community.
But this is really a dick move as far as I’m concerned.
I’ll hopefully manage to post a more in depth entry about this later, but I’m super busy with work at the moment, so for now I just wanted to get this out there.
In the meantime, if you want to support Beasts of War, please consider buying a Backstage Pass.
