Dear guys and Gals, as most of you remember those of us that live in the land down under used to be able to buy GW products from the UK and have them shipped to Australia for virtually half the price of what they cost here until GW decide to be absolute douche bags and stopped the practice from happening. Well good news everyone because I came across this site. Check out some of their prices and be sure to tell all of your friends and club mates about them so they get lots of business and stay open for good. And for those of you who decide to villi-fie these guys and call them leeches as most fan bois do when it comes to on line vendors, these guys give to the gaming community as I'm pretty sure they've offered prize support for one of the local tournaments.



About us
As the English pound is weak in comparison to the Australian Dollar we are able to beat local Games Workshop prices and even local discounters. Shipping is more competitive, reliable and flexible to your needs than it has ever been. Check out our Postage and Shipping area for more details. We deal mainly in Warhammer Fantasy, Warhammer 40K and Lord of the Rings but are able to get you almost anything for the hobby of table top war gaming. From Sand, Glues, to specialist card games and dice.

Our company does NOT trade with Games Workshop and it is therefore not bound by any trade conditions of supply into certain markets. We sell at UK recommended retail price which is a considerable saving for our cousins in Australia and New Zealand. The recommended retail price differs from Country to Country. An example of some savings are on the home page and appear most months in the blog with the "Saver of the Month".

Contact

We are happy to help with any quires or questions you may have so get it touch. We prefer our communication via email as it allowes us to minimise our overheads and maximise our man power.

I was genuinely thinking of doing this as something on the side, but I figured GW would come down pretty hard on anyone doing it.

By the looks it's just someone in the UK sending it to Oz, I will assume they buy it from 20% off places to make some profit. Slow going business, but must be fairly lucrative. We shall see what GW respond with!

Looks like a fair enough deal.
These guys a\have been around for a fair while now, their exchange rates are quoted as at 2012.

Just to compare with current currency figures (xe.com, your bank's will be worse):

Ravenwing Battle Force

GW Oz : $AU185
Ozhammer: $AU126 (surface mail, 56 days)
Bitz Barn (US) : $AU112 (surface mail, 28 days)

Pays to shop around.

Jst went to Bitz Barn's website and either I'm a complete and utter dunce and am unable to find it or he's got no stock.

I can assure you they are 100% legit I have bought a great deal of stuff from them over the years and the service is always prompt.

According to the guy's site he will not be affected by the change in sales agreements either as does not buy his stuff from GW direct.

This and other vendors i have made contact with, reduces my expenditure on GW product.

The crying shame out of it all, i would love to buy from my local stockists, but until i win either OZ Lotto or Powerball, Aussie prices are out of reach for me, now i can effectively buy twice as much than what i can get as opposed to Aussie shelf prices.
