in a hobby like war hammerYou’ll always end up with more plastic than you reasonably know What to do with. Whether it is a file A sea of gray models You weren’t able to do anything, or all those knacks showed up, a full project would always come up with a lot of waste—and Games Workshop He wants to do something about it.
the Wargame tabletop company Announcing a limited trial today for Warhammer Recycling Program. Although plastic weeds (plasticframework” Those model pieces are included) It has long been recyclableThis initiative is the first time that the company itself has introduced an in-house recycling program. The 28 participating Warhammer stores across the UK will be putting up recycling bins by the end of March for hobbyists to dispose of used sticks, old plastic models and empty paint pots. The reason “is clear — looking after Terra is everyone’s responsibility, including us, and this is one small thing we can do to help with that effort,” the announcement post read in part.
There are some limitations to the trial other than the small number of stores involved (there are Over 130 Warhammer stores in the UK Single). First, the program will only accept plastic thrones and miniatures – Games Workshop has not produced any metal or resin diecast products. It will also accept only items made in a toy workshop for recycling, noting that the company cannot be held responsible for paint pots and pans whose chemical composition is not explicitly known. war hammer Fans also won’t see a “return” on recycling in new forms form Made from old plastic, but that could change if the software evolves. “The plastic used in Citadel miniatures is of high quality and purity, so there are plenty of uses for the recycled material elsewhere in the plastic chain, including garden planters, playground equipment, or even ping-pong tables,” the ad continues. “Because Citadel miniatures require such high-quality materials, we are not yet able to convert old finches collected from the shops into new models—although we are investigating this for the future.”
But even with these caveats, the program is a huge step forward, and worth supporting. Hopefully, as Games Workshop attests, the software will eventually roll out across more and more of its stores around the world – and fans will be able to play a small role in making worlds war hammer A little greener behind there Orks and orcs.
