Fair enough. It makes sense that they want you to come back. It gets you back in the store, possibly to buy more stuff. I will check with my store owner. It would be okay that way too, I will be back in December.

I ordered one this evening from my local GW. They'd shifted all 150 during the day, apparently. Staff weren't sure when the re-stocks would arrive - maybe Wednesday, maybe the week after. I'm not bothered about the time, as I got it for a friend for Xmas.

GW have released plenty of limited edition 40k models over the years that weren't Space Marines. It's only since Primaris came along that they seem to have decided that's all that's worth making.

I was told three to five weeks when I went in to buy the models today. The store was already out (I went late so expected this) but was surprised at the length of time to fill orders. Apparently they've scheduled a production run based on total orders today and will not be making any more after that. Ever.


Reading's for morons who can't understand pictures.

I picked up the single Nighthaunt figure, quite happy. I may use it as a hero model instead of a bladegheist since it is much nicer.

I know, and I’ve got most of them that came that weren’t marines since the early 2000’s Games Days.
But the same was true before Primaris, it was nearly all normal marines.

My point being is people being surprised when it is Primaris or SCE is odd.
The surprise is when the odd model comes that isn’t.

Confirmed that it must be picked up in store. Good thing I am coming back fairly soon to my GW store.

Pretty happy with my haul, backpack, free birthday mini and art book to come.

A bit disappointed the store had no Empire stuff (expected but still) and no Necromunda (says it's mail order only?). Got to share memories of the 100th store party I celebrated many years ago.

Still have my Sgt Centarius somewhere.

Last time I walked into a GW and asked them to take a look at the Necromunda stuff that had come out that weekend, I was told they didn't have it. It appears in store on release day, they sell it, then they don't get it back in stock.

Necro is online only.

So jelly!

I remember thinking to myself "Should I get him? Should I not get him? I won't!", then thinking I will on the last day, but had no way of getting to the store. x2

At the (cough-cough-cough dollars) level you get a backpack, and free mini but not Sgt Pentacentarius, just the one they sell at shop birthdays.

Looted three Lieutenants, three Ghosties.

Hopefully arranging last minute Looting of three more Lieutenants.

Also, I picked up 34 Terminator Captains and 82 Terminator Chaplains from the rebranding.

Love Looting! Not even the Omnisssiah taking my poor car into his logical arms can stop me

Can you explain a bit more? I'm not entirely sure what your post is referring to!

Thought those might be bases! What about the other two things though? Hard to tell from the picture, but they look like badges...which i didn't even know GW did, if that's the case!

GW are undergoing a slow re-branding of all stores from Games Workshop to Warhammer stores and yes they are badges 1 a round Inquisition pin badge and the other is a metal 500th store badge which were given out yesterday in every GW store.

Ah, hadn't seen the mention of the badge anywhere before! Searching for it now i can see it mentioned on some specific US store Facebook pages if you spent $50, but there was no mention of it here in the UK or the GW site that i can see.

Um what he said, yeah. They had several others but pins are not really my thing.

One guy on line had a 100th store pin, but apparently there were 2 100th store celebrations? The Sgt Centurious one and another a few years ago?

If anyone can give some more context on the badges/pins that would be helpful, I've not heard anything about those before at all so I've no idea if they're a US exclusive thing ( although Obviously the 100th store stuff would be) or an event exclusive thing or not, haven't seen them mentioned in relation to the UK GWs other than the Warhammer World exclusive pins.

Centurius was (IIRC) for the hundredth store worldwide. If there was another hundredth store celebration more recently, it must have been a specific country.

They’re probably already packed, just waiting for me to haul my fat bum to the post office :p

Guarantee delivery before Christmas, likely before November :p

Rebranding is when a Games Workshop store becomes a Warhammer Store. Or when a brand new Warhammer Store opens.

This time was speshul though. Previously, you could just buy the Terminator Captain on the day. £15 a chuck. But the Chaplain required a collector’s card to be completed, totalling £100. You then got the chance to buy one per completed card. For £15 quid. But here, it was ‘as many as you want’.

£1,740 later.....

The 500th badges and AFAIK all the other badges are released worldwide, some badges are only available at GW events or for taking part in certain AOS/40K campaigns in store and the rest are normally given out free with web purchases when certain new minis/factions/games come out, the 500th badge was given away along with a postcard set and a AOS/40K battle plan with purchases of £50.

The Inquisition badge is from a set of 3 and the badge set also came with 3 postcards and pos given out originally about a year ago IIRC, GW have been given out badges since the 80s, ive got a few badges and always looking for more!

1:Black Library Weekender 2017
2:Black Library Day Eisenhorn & Fulgrim
3:30th Anniversary of Space Marines
4:TBH i can not remember which event at mo :/
5:Fate of Konor Loebos store campaign
6:New store opening and store re-branding





The other 100th store mini was for the 100th US store opening, it was a re-imaging of Captain Centos and only available in the US.

The models were boring, and my models were not Warhammer World ready for the event, so I had to sit this one out.


I'm still fine with it, though. The money that could've been for either is definitely gonna be for Sly Marbo in a couple of weeks...
