Warlord announce price increase
Today, Warlord games have announced a substantial increase in trade prices across the product range, although this is a trade price increase, it will have an effect on RRP and discounted prices.
Test Valley Models does not have the means to absorb this increase, as it has with smaller increases in the past.
The full letter to traders is shown below;
"Increasing our prices is not a practice we take lightly at Warlord Games. Over the last 18 months, the world we live in has changed. There are a number of factors that have led to circumstances that are unfortunately out of our control. A lot of this you will already be aware of having experienced it yourselves.
COVID-19 has had a major impact on the way we do business. Like most business in the world we have had to take measures to protect staff and minimise risk. The cost of doing business around the world has reached an all-time high. From the cost of shipping to the cost of raw materials we have experienced an increase in costs of between 20% and 300%.
As a result we will be implementing a price rise on the 11th July. The price rise will be across most Warlord Games products and will be an average of 12%. Any order placed before the 11th July will be at the current list price.
On behalf of the Trade Sales Team and Warlord Games I would like to thank each and every one of our trade customers for their support over the last 18 months.
Head of Trade Sales"
Test Valley Models will be implementing the price increases as stock arrives, so the full impact will take time to filter through
