Black Friday is coming!


It goes without saying (but I'm saying it anyway) that Black Friday is a big deal for retailers.  For those who have not heard of this, it is the day after Thanksgiving here in America, which is one of the biggest shopping days of the year (the last Saturday before Christmas is actually the biggest).  It gets it's name because traditionally a lot of retailers operate in 'the red' (i.e. losing money) until this day, at which point they finally make a profit for the year.  Whether this is true or not is actually immaterial, it is still a huge shopping day with huge sales.


Mantic, even though it is a UK based company (and as such does not celebrate Thanksgiving (though I can see them being quite thankful for getting rid of those colonial gits)) of course wants to jump on the band wagon.  Their webstore will have some special deals of course (especially since they are having their open day on Saturday the 26th), but this year they are doing some special RETAIL ONLY sales.  There are some great bargains to be had if you are looking to build a new army, or want to give a new army to that special friend of yours for Christmas.

I want to state again, these are RETAIL ONLY.  You cannot get them online.  So if you want these, head to your FLGS (that is Friendly Local Game Store) and have them order them for you (I don't expect many stores to stock these).


So lets start with a great discount (over 35% off) on some of Mantic's boxed games
