This week has seen some sad news for wargamers. GW has finally closed Warhammer Historical, after several fire sales on the books, everything is now deleted, out of print, gone.
Whilst we have to remember that they are a business, it becomes more apparent that they care only about the bottom line and gamers and the games themselves are way down on their list of priorities, now the rulebooks are no longer available the games like WAB will wither and die.
Those of us of an older vintage will remember those old days of GW being a stockist and importer of other companies games as well as their own, but their sales have been falling and their usual response is to raise prices, which they are about to do up to a blistering 66%.
No thanks GW.
