Changes to Wargames Illustrated Overseas Subscriptions

Over the last few weeks, we have been forced to make major changes in regard to Wargames Illustrated subscriptions for overseas subscribers. Some of these changes will bring welcome improvements to the service we are able to offer our subscribers, particularly within the USA, where subs are now being offered by our US subscription distributor Ironheart Artisans.

For non-US overseas subscribers, the news is unfortunately not so great. For European
subscribers, we are pleased to be able to continue offering our subscription service, however inhibiting price rises mean that we are no longer able to mail EU sub copies with free figure frames. For Rest of the World (ROW) subscribers, we are unfortunately unable to continue fulfilling subscriptions. This has been a very difficult decision to take – we have a loyal and long-standing global readership and appreciate the support we have received over the years. Sadly, the unreliability and cost of mailing has increased so much that a ROW subscription has become cost-prohibitive in order to avoid making a loss.

Please be assured that ALL impacted overseas subscribers have been reimbursed any
outstanding money – no one has been left out of pocket.
In order to make sure you don’t miss out on your monthly Wargames illustrated fix please
consider supporting your local hobby store by ordering your copy locally. Wargames
Illustrated is sold at over 290 hobby stores around the world.

All the best,
Dan Faulconbridge
Owner and Editor
