Advance Order Rant

Since the release of 6th edition I have preordered everything - CSM, DA and CD codexes, death from the skies (I know, technically this wasn't a preorder) and crusade of fire. None of them have ever turned up on the day of release. It's always the monday or tuesday after, despite getting the email of dispatch on the thursday before.

Maybe it's just me but I find this unacceptable. The point of preordering is to have it turn up on the day of release or the day before. Once my order arrives I am going to be sending them an email of polite complaint over this.

Not a happy bunny. For an extra couple quid I could have got the bus over to my nearest GW store and bought it on the day.


  1. Don't think GW have ever promised that.

    Besides, they WANT you in their stores, rather than getting it shipped direct to you. More likely to buy stuff whilst there. Thats why getting pre orders delivered to stores is guaranteed.

    1. It used to be that preorders got to you the day of release or the day before. Not to mention that independent stockists get their copies on Wednesdays, and we know that they sell them naughtily on that day.
