Default The wrong bitz in your package...

Well, I haven't bought much metal up to this point. Just my Stealthsuits and Ethereal, really, and they were very simple. I did get an extra antennae for the stealthsuits...

So I bought 2 packs of 3 pathfinders, and 1 pack of rail rifle pathfinders. I was putting them together, and realized one pack had 2 pathfinders with a left hand, and two guns with a left hand! Does this happen often? Does GW rectify it, or do you have to just order new bitz?

Most of the time GW will gladly fix it.

One time my friend got some realy bad paint from their store, they mailed him a brand new set.

But I have heard alot of horror stories of GW jackassery.

Good luck getting your parts.

as far as missing/damaged parts go, GW has an excellent customer service policy...they don't argue about whether or not you might have had the parts to start with, they just replace them for you. dead easy

Does getting a Tau battleforce with four extra firewarriors count?

I got a boxed army that was amongst a few other things, missing the great cannon and it's crew! I also was missing some bits for the Elector Count in the same box. Didn't get the parts for the Elector count but I was given a new great cannon off the shelf when i told the staff about it.

i bought a broadside battlesuit, and it wasnt broadside, no railguns at all. i went back to GW with a receipt and thay gave me a real XV88 and said "you can keep the crisis that was supposed to be a broadside, we cant put it back on the shelves" so i got a free crisis

My friend bought the 3rd edition tactical squad (yellow trim, not gold) and instead of 10 backs packs, he got 40...

i bought 2 Striking Scorpion blisters(my Spedcial Scorpions), and each had 1 Scorpion arm and 1 Banshee arm, i brought them back like a month later and they just switched the 2 of mine with 2 proper ones.
This statement is false.

Parts go missing alot of the time, GW staff will sort it out no problem, as long as you still have the reciept.

One of my friends ordered some Incubi off Mail Order. He got it Incubi, but instead of backpacks he got...

WFB Empire Regiment Champion heads.

I have no idea how they managed that one.

GW are very good on their customer service, after all, if they don't advertise, they'll need to look after the customers they do have.

No comments on the prices okay people, I mean this.

I've known a friend to get a model for free simply because he pointed out to a staff member that it had the wrong gun. "Sure, it's yours". He converted it up very nicely anyway.
