Malware attack from Games Workshop!!

Sooo there I am trying to figure out how to get myself and Exalted Chariot of Slaanesh and low and behold I see on the GW site that there are some available. This struck me as odd because the online store sold out in the pre-order phase, in what felt like 20 minutes.

So I click on add to cart.

Then this appears.

so, being the curios person I am I click accept.


I then notice the fishy web address and then the diclaimer.

so I enter some random characters into the fields and "Activate my gift card."

I enter another random number and:

I am prompted to install some software.

I stop there, because I can't run the installer in a secure environment.

Anyone else have fishy activity while on GW's website?

I feel like this is to specific to be malware on my machine, it must be from their end.
