If not, it seems that could be half the reason they aren't selling.

I would have thought an FLGS is the BEST place for esoteric games like the SG to be marketed. GW have their own stores for their 'core' games, I would have though allowing FLGS to sell Necromunda et al would be great.

I only say this because I can't get them through the locals, and it would seem to be the best route..

Chaos Orc sells a fair bit of stuff.

In the US independent retailers may or may not sell SG games. For example one of the stores in Colorado Springs does sell SG games, the owners play them and support them. The biggest obstacle however is that the SG games are bitz orders in the US meaning that the retailer does not make a dime if they sell them at the same price as the GW online store.

Some GW stores carry SG products, but that's at the whim of the store manager.

Hellebore, I've taken to ordering to ordering SG stuff through a GW store, to avoid the postage cost. It does help that a have a GW store only 15 mins walk away, mind.

The SG catalogue in the store can actually be more helpful than the website, in some cases. I got to see the Warmaster Tzeentch Daemon Characters, for example. They're not shown on the website.

Unfortunately they don't do that in Oz...

I was thinking more from a financial point of view, surely putting your less popular lines out through other retailers would be better than getting a trickle through the online shop?

I agree that, in theory, the SG games might flourish in the odd indie store. It does kind of raise suspicions that GW would rather not have their (relatively cheap) Specialist Games actively competing with the mainstream products, which is what would happen if the indies could sell them profitably.

We also have a small selection of products available.

Please note that some retailers list products that are not available and then when they can't get the items, tell the customer that they are out of stock.

Many stores are doing this for the SM Battle Company and the Large Tank Company, as GW have not confirmed if they will not be available or not yet, hence the reason we have not listed them.

What you see on the site we have in stock or can get the items.
