Grrrrr....again....and again and again....we just want to give you money and you screw us again and again! I know this isn't original, and I know this is business as usual, but I'm so sick of this. I love your product, I love the world, I...well...the game is okay too...but GW are seriously dirty when it comes to practices like this.

on the bright side this is good as it means demand outpaced production which means with any lkuck it might signal to GW orks are more popular then they thought

remember sisters of battle had this same issue with their box

Any pretense that they 'didn't know the popularity orks/sisters/whatever' is lost after a few repetitions of this particular exercise. And that was a couple years ago at this point.

Since they were actively prepping the website for this one, and forewarning people about the stock levels, the same old excuses just don't hold water. They knew. They simply under-produced again.

Dominion was one of the rare cases where they got it right. Sales were good, but they're slowly trickling out of stock over the course of six weeks or so. That's a healthy lifespan for a specialty box (if one wants to argue that limited time boxes are good for consumers at all, which I don't. They should ride for the duration of the edition, which should be longer than they are now)

Meh. I rarely buy GW, and always avoid their web store. With the inclusion of the codex to jack the price up, I doubt I'll pick this up even if I luck out and find a discount somewhere on the web. I want to buy GW minis, but they make it so damn hard!

Limited box going out; meh. Limited box inlcuding an early release of the codex is what's douchey about this.

The fact that it seems like GW cant release a single preorder without everything selling out in 5 minutes, should have investors psyched.

Selling the box started 20min ago in Germany. Just visited to see if it is out of stock already.

Went to 1st place in queue system immediately and could still order it.

Guess the allocation here is better. My local dealer will get 5 sets guaranteed.

Sold out (or rather, prebooked pretty much immediately) here at the stores in Sweden today. What can men do against such reckless hate I ask?

Same here in the Netherlands. After some searching I was able to place an order at a FLGS, and I hope it will go through.

For Dominion my local store released a memo saying GW wouldn't be shipping literally anything else out for 2 weeks as their factory and warehousing was entirely dedicated to its release. It's likely less a case of GW not knowing that products will sell out super quickly than simply not having the capability to meet demand. I do think only making the ork codex available as part of such a limited release box set when they know that only a small faction of customers can get hold of it isn't a great customer friendly move on their part...

I was stuck in a queue on the US site. Took me 20min. Got through at 1:17 EST and it was sold out.

Called a LGS and pre-ordered one through them instead. I heard it was allocated stock. 4-5 to stores. So I was surprised they had one available for me.

I went to my local store at 10:15ish AM to preorder. The owner said I was number 12 on the list and that he only expected to get 4.

Wow- freaky surprised that I could still preorder if I wanted to- took about a minute to queue into the site, and there are still boxes. Also think the price is actually reasonable for what you get.

I'm not ordering this one, but I am encouraged that the Kill Team release will be smooth. The GK v Ksons box probably won't really be very high demand. But with both of those on the way, there just wasn't room in the budget for snaggas.

Kind of a shame, because I really like Zodgrod and I must have that giant great white squig and I'd need some snagga boys to fill the detachment. But knowing that I'll be able to get what I need a box at a time over a year or so takes the sting out of any lost savings.

In my area in Canada, you could call a Games Workshop store and pre-order your pre-order. The staff would write your contact info and place the order for you on their store terminals which aren't affected by the website queue, as soon as the product was released. Then just call in later with your credit card details or visit in person to complete the transaction. They even said if they weren't able to secure an online pre-order for you that they'd reserve one of their store allotment for you.

Not really, selling out so quickly means that there's significantly less stock than demand. Every person that wanted to buy a box but couldn't is lost profit.

Didn't even bother trying with the new queue system in place, but I was on the fence anyway. Hope most of the folks who really wanted one got a box.

We are fortunate to have a number of local stores in our region that hold GW accounts. Between the 4 or so of them, you can get just about anything if you pre-order. Some shops you can just message on Facebook what you want and they reply back when it's ready to pick up. I haven't ordered direct from GW in years and based on this I'm glad I do not have to.

Really there is little incentive to meet demand on day one, makes people feel the product is more value and drives sales for other products as well.

I've decided I'm fine with just the rule book, I don't play orks or guard so I'm not gonna be buying it but yeah it's gonna suck for Ork players in partiuclar as I bet some of that terrain'll be exclusive

They should just charge higher prices. If the demand is that high, why shouldn't they?
