The One about Games Workshop Price Increases Again

Updated: Feb 11, 2022

Hi Guys,


I hope you are all well.


I'm sorry its been such a long time since my last blog along with the pandemic I've had a lot on with a recent addition to my family which unfortunately wasn't a smooth ride.


However, I am pleased to be able to bring you an update on what we have been doing and what you can expect.


First up, lets deal with the Elephant in the room and talk about the announced Games Workshop price increases.

As most of you will be aware, yesterday Games Workshop announced that they will be increasing some of their ranges by 5-20% from the 7th of March


The pricing changes were as follows:


In many cases, this will be about 5%. So, as an example of what you can expect on most kits, a box of Space Marine Intercessors will go up just £1 from £35 to £36.*


A few things are going up about 10% (e.g. books, scenery, resin miniatures), and there are a couple of outliers (e.g. Blood Bowl teams and metal miniatures) which are going up around 20%.


From Composite Games position we are more than aware that the cost of Gas and Electric is going to be increased substantially along with the usual price increases of food and other essential items.


This will effectively strangle some families and make enjoying the tabletop wargaming hobby extremely difficult due to the high cost.


So the question is how is Composite Games going to deal with this?


Most FLG's (Friendly Local Gaming Store - my preferred definition) will follow suit and apply their usual discounts to Games Workshop new prices.


However as Composite Games principal objective is about increasing access to the tabletop roleplaying and wargaming community I think we can do better.


Therefore, will be implementing the below changes to our items on sale in store and online.


1, Army boxes such as Limited-Edition set, Combat Patrols, Characters, troops boxes and Vehicles will be price matched to their current prices.


2, Books, scenery and resin miniatures will have their prices reduced by a further 5% rounding up to the nearest pound.


3, Blood Bowl and Metal Miniatures will have their prices reduced by up to 10% rounding up to the nearest pound. (This may exclude some online exclusive orders)


All of the above deductions will be applied after our standard discount has been applied.


While we would like to keep all of the prices the same, the constant new waves of products and additional price changes from Games Workshop would make this difficult.


We are planning fixing these prices until June, however if the support for our store keeps increasing, we may be able to hold the prices until the end of the year.


Secondly, we have recently started an affiliate scheme for people who are looking for new ways to help support Composite Games.



Our affiliate program is designed to help grow our community by giving our followers and supporters the tools to help build up their own brands in a way that rewards everyone involved.


To become an affiliate all you need to do is sign up on our affiliate portal via the link below.



Once you have been accepted you will be issued a unique affiliate link for the Composite Games website.


This link can be used on Twitch streams, websites and other social media pages.


Once a customer uses your link to make a purchase you will get a notification of the sale and you will receive a commission payment equal to 5% of the customers basket.


So a £100.00 order will get you a £5.00 commission payment for every order placed using your link.


This could also work really well for people that run gaming clubs or school D&D/board gaming groups as the commission payments can be paid out as cash or new games/products to be used in your clubs or as prizes for competitions.


If you have any questions about this then please let us know by emailing info@compositegames.com


We have some other cool things to share over the coming weeks and we wish you all the best in whatever battles or adventures that await you.


All the best


Craig
