I think they are still getting caught out by its popularity. Some issues are still selling out in minutes of a restock. It's the sort of situation that can make or break a company.

I'm wondering if GW have had to do another run of some of the plastics required for our orders, which is causing the delay. The money has been taken, but no magazines showing yet, let alone delivered.

Hachette site now shows all the stuff I'm actually due in the late delivery, including the super mega lucky glue sleeve.

Same here. Just in time for me to be back on nights, so sleeping when the postman knocks. Recycling bin gets a glue sleeve to help fill it

Has anyone done a guesstimate about how the remaining stuff breaks down? Now we know how they are breaking up DI we should be able to work out what might be coming in future issues based on number of sprues vs number of issues remaining.

Awesome - just checked and looks like my first two issues are finally ready to dispatch. Just in time too as a bunch of extra paints I ordered have arrived

A number of issues will have paints / brushes only but we don’t know how many yet so think it would be tough to get an accurate breakdown at this time.

Expecting here roughly something like this in every pack of four:
- 1 issue with paints/brushes and similar only but no models
- 1 issue with terrain
- 1 issue based on marines
- 1 issue based on death guard

the DI spure will essentially count as whatever the majority on the frame is, likely ordered so whatever spares you get one issue are used the next.

only interesting part becomes the multi-frame vehicles, where you could see them split over two deliveries

Yeah if you look at issue 17 looks like another single container magazine

First direct debit taken 30th November still no copies received. Le sigh...

However....

Sorry for the fuzziness - got it off another group I'm on.

Checked if it had been posted by looking at last few pages but couldn't see anything - Heresy me if old

Issue 15 - Biologus Putrifier
Issue 16 - Two Intercessors, One Interceptor, Two Hellblasters

Spoiler:



Yeah it was just than a few pages back now. When the first 11-14’s started arriving.

17 as another container is news though.


On the subject of DI, the sprues are all split by faction, so they could easily send one faction Sprue per delivery, and that wouldn’t break the pattern.

On the glue. Revell is my usual, the metal spout is great. Don’t use a lid, I have a thin paper clip bent at a right angle, just slides in as a stopper.
Will try there same when I get to the GW. But I’m still in the one Revell for years now, and have an unopened one sitting there too.

On the glue, I rely on Citadel's poly cement. No other model shops that close to me, so it's as much convenience as a set preference.

And for the plug? Old TV aerial cable contains a brass/copper/dunno wire through the core. Two minutes with select tools, and one plakky glue plug

Personally I'm hoping that, for subscribers from issue 1, the Tank comes across a max of four issues but in the same delivery. If not, I'm sti!l only paying a max £32 for a ridiculously priced model.

you would hope the larger vehicles are done that way (so all in one box) but not holding my breath on that

The Repulsor is only a three sprued model, the Plagueburst Crawler is two. So that looks like five issues covered there.

Well, we're seeing the Containers released within a couple of issues of each other.

Tanks are of course different, as they're not 'three copies of the same sprue'.

I think it still lends credence to the tanks being split over issues. You have the containers (£30 set) over three sprues split so makes sense that they would do the same with the tanks.

vehicles will definately be over multiple issues, simply to avoid the one issue they are in being an easy £8 multiple order

Yeah i reckon it will be 1 sprue per issue - that still means you're getting a Repulsor for £24 though which is a bargain.

Oh they'll definitely be split. So far the only multi-sprue we've had was the Librarian, and even then those are the quarter sized sprues.

It's a question of whether they'll be done over successive issues, or broken up a bit more.

There is no way it won’t be issues next to each other.
Surely that would push customers away. Various people’s needs and means.
Though I guess it would force people to continue subscribing.

But my guess would be a month with a repulsor and a paint/brush or similar.
Then a month with PBC, paint/brush, and one other thing.

The main customer base is subscribers, so if they can’t build a whole model for a whole month, somethings wrong there.
(The weekly buyers would have to wait, but the point is - sub instead! And they’d only wait a week at a time for each follow up Sprue.


I mean time will tell. But if they don’t do it that way, huge mistake imo.
(Or matters not a bit to me, I haven’t even gotten to building the reivers yet, let alone the 11 odd issues sat in the pile)

The sprues for the tanks and the like will probably be one after the other. However, I remember looking at the assembly instructions for the Thunderbird 2 partwork (available online in full before the series began); that had things like getting the lower hull assemblies for the small vehicles in issue 3, then the rest of them in issue 5 or 6.

Winner winner chicken dinner. Post finally arrived when I got home today.

Not only that but when I was looking through some drawers I found about 20 pots of paint I haven't touched for ages when I was just about to make a big order.

Woohoo

I'll buy another 3 mags at that price!

two up on me then, mine still has yet to arrive and I already knew I had a draw of paints I've not touched in ages, the joys of custom paint mixes and forgetting to label what the hell they are

the cynic in me suggests you will find one of the three issues is out of stock, but they will charge you for and send the other two
