You may be ready to skip passed this post and if you are you may be as likely to skip the paperwork included with your latest Warhammer Conquest Delivery
No need to get upset or worried, this is just a head’s up for people who may not check the paperwork in their delivery (especially at this busy time of year).
For those of you who subscribe to Warhammer Conquest. This month included a little extra note. I didn’t pay much attention at first, I saw the picture read the headline and quietly assumed it was

This isn’t unusual behaviour from part-works magazines and I don’t expect it will be the last time we see it happen in our Warhammer Conquest Subscriptions either. After all, we are only just about 1/4 of the way in.
Hachette’s phone lines are only open 9am-5pm Mon-Fri. they aren’t open on weekends. I have Zero Confidence in their email service. I suspect they would either cancel your whole subscription or just ignore you!
Personally, I’m not thankful that they’ve taken the trouble to reserve one on my behalf. I’ve already had issues with Hachette’s Customer Service and I’ve noted the issues many other people have had in my Issue 1 Review when it comes to trying to cancel the subscription.
What do you think of this practice? do you want this artbook? let me know in the comments.
As for me, I need to go and make a phone call.
According to the subscription paperwork, this type of activity was advertised:
- As a subscriber, I will also automatically receive any special issues of Warhammer 40,000: Conquest and I will have the option to opt out beforehand by email or phone.
- As a subscriber, I will automatically receive any binders as they become available at a cost of £7.99 (€9.99) each.
When you subscribe online, the following is in their terms:
- As a subscriber, you will automatically receive binders as they become available at £7.99 (€9.99) each. You will also receive special issues, though you will have the option to opt out of these beforehand.
You do however need to click on “order and delivery T&Cs” to view this.
But I completely stand by the statement that cancellation may not be a simple case of calling or emailing. I know of may reports where requests to change addresses, resolve missing deliveries and cancel subscriptions have been ignored.
I’m also a bit surprised to find I’ll be charged an additional £7.99 per folder they send me (an undisclosed qunatity). Even though I personally have no use for them as I tend to bin the magazines. Can I even send these back?
