promoting sales. GW gives stores game boards or in this case WD and they take pics of them using the board. In that case people see the board pieces and decide hey those are pretty cool i dont have to scratch build terrain anymore.
The problem is when you own a shop you are almost expected to have house terrain which can soak up a lot of your time. These kits maybe one of the best ways for shops to supply players with terrain without having to put quite as many man hours into it.
My cousin and I are building terrain now, so when we open are shop in probably 4-6 years from now we will have plenty of terrain.
