Default Spray gun recall

just got the newsletter and this was on it!


As most of you are aware, we had our scheduled release for our Spray Gun for Saturday June 21st 2008. Unfortunately Games Workshop has decided to recall all Spray Guns that have been manufactured to date. Games Workshop prides itself on the high quality of its products and customer service. Due to this diligence we have just discovered a quality defect in the Spray Guns.

As we cannot be 100% confident in the quality of this product we have decided that the best course of action is to remove the Spray Gun from distribution until we can correct the problem.

If you have already purchased either the Citadel Spray Gun or Citadel Propellant please return them to the place you purchased them for a full refund.

Games Workshop is deeply sorry for any inconvenience that this may cause you.

so if you guys have spray guns, return them now

The defect is in the cap that attaches to the propellant. Because its plastic it can wear down over time causing leaks as it won't sit properly. The recall is to replace the plastic cap with a metal one.

i heard that some moron in the US hooked his up to a compressor without a regulator and took his eye out when the hose blew out.

there is no 'overkil'l, there is only 'open fire' and 'time to reload'
It's an age old dilemma. You want to set everything on fire, but you can't steal stuff while it's burning. Don't let your passions run away with you! Do things in the correct order! Pillage, THEN burn!
its all fun and games till someone loses an eye, then its fun and games without depth preception.

Ouch, that's gotta suck. At least GW admits the product has issues and recalls it instead of saying, "Yeah, that could happen, but we're gonna sell it anyway..."
