Live in the UK. There appears absolutely no rhyme or reason to when it arrives for me. They come but always incredibly late in comparison to what I see available in my local asda. Sometimes they come in bulk and other times individually.

Has anyone else still not received their subscription delivery for issues 15, 16, 17 and 18?

it's showing on the hachette site that it was added to my account on the 28th of December. Maybe it's because I have the premium subscription and don't seem to see any posts or videos of anyone receiving the premium content yet.


Nothing here as yet, last lot arrived about the 9th, interestingly enough so did the lot before, and the one before that...

interesting definition of "every four weeks" really so far, gradually getting further and further behind

As a rule my deliveries have turned up around 9/10 days after they have been added into the account, and I am based in the UK. So given you are overseas yours should probably be turning up any day soon? Best of luck.


Sorry, i'm also in the UK (Wales) just newer at posting and hadn't setup my profile fully so oddly defaulted to Bulgaria.

I had this with Dredd and 2000AD.

My next Conquest set should include the art book (Which I'm quite looking forward to). And those extras have previously delayed shipments on the other two collections.

Example? 2000AD, I was two weeks ahead when I got my subscription (as we are with Conquest now. Well, I am). Then they did the Covers Book, and I got nowt for a month. End result? I'm now two weeks behind retail on my sub.

It is odd how they send it out, currently with every four issue delivery I am behind retail for the first two and when it gets delivered I am ahead two. So on my next delivery, issues 19-22 I will get it the weekend between the retail release of issues 20-21. That is how it is currently working for me. I need to get my act together and get issues 15-18 painted before my next delivery and for my P and M blog.

@Mad Doc Grotsnik: I am looking forward to the artbook too, I assume there will be no new art in there but I hope it is a nice package overall.

most recent DD taken here but still no sign of the magazines

phone them, got through! (this is progress, line quality terrible), gave account details etc, put on hold, disconnected...
phoned back, still rubbish line, gave details.. put on hold... then someone else answered as if I had just been put back in the call queue...

they say "give it a week", posted 28th December and apparently "in transit", possibly a red painted one?

interesting mix of dates for something thats "four weekly"

31st August
28th September (pretty much on the nose)
26th October (again pretty much spot on)
30th November (um... thats not +28 days guys)
28th December (well its 28 from the previous one but still wrong)

pretty much all of them have arrives 8th - 10th of the month

I think they are the dates that they get processed and payment taken rather than posted.
It doesn’t say anywhere that’s the postage date, just what everything is in that one delivery.

So it could be to do with banks and processing times and a few other things that throw it off a bit.
(That’s even if you spoke to someone on the phone and they mentioned it being delivery day. As the people in the office seem not to know..)

Just as to why those dates vary yet your delivery never has, until now..

Hopefully you get it soon, though I suppose it’s only one day shy of your regular arrival.
Mine varied up to 5 or so days usually.

Is this your 15-18 one?

15-18 yes

know a few people who had done partworks, they all say they are the most disorganised companies imaginable

just curious how "every 28 days" (i.e. 13 a year) turns into "monthly" and slowly getting further and further behind

My local stores (WH Smiths and a couple in independants) all got fewer of issue 19 than they ordered/expected

(annoying as I wanted a second copy for conversions so I've had to try Forbidden Planet as the Hachette were sold out as soon as issue 19 went live... well by 9am anyway)

so I wonder if GW hasn't supplied as many sprues as they were meant to (at the expected date anyway given that Christmas probably slowed everything down), that could explain why things are slower than normal this month

It doesn't seem that anyone with Premium has got their 15-18 yet. Is anyone with a regular sub still waiting on that delivery? If not then it's pretty clear what the hold-up is.

There was only one copy in my local WH Smiths compared to the usual 3 although I was a day late in popping down so they may have already sold one or two copies. I wish I had picked up the spare for conversion purposes as I have two Terminator sets to steal bits from bit when I went down again the next day the copy had gone.

Still haven't got mine. Which is either a good or bad thing, who the feth even knows anymore.

Have cancelled the sub. Have called and written and emailed. They keep sending it.

At this point I feel like I may as well just keep them. Then they send the letters say - we'll send no more til you pay X.

And then they keep sending it.

I don't even know anymore.

Got mine today. That fits in with my expectation of about 14 days after money collected.

Is that all premium subs get on top of the regular stuff? Glad I didn't go premium then.

It is indeed.
Or for the first one anyway.

Reading it, the next three are just more cards (for units not gotten yet), boards (to make 4 boards total), and I guess even more dice..

That is in effect £30 of stuff per box, but I wouldn’t pay that for just that stuff.
I do hope more comes in the others to make it better value, for those that did premium.
(Stick a Mortarion in there for the last one for those who kept with it. That kind of thing..)

I managed to try another newsagent (not had any issue 19) and a big WH Smiths (no copies of 19, they didn't think they've had many if any in as they said they always send stuff back)

Adrift within the vortex of my imagination.

Premium contents were clearly advertised from the get go, at least for the first delivery. I orginally backed Premium then downgraded after analysing cost vs return.

Premium is for whales and doesnt offer much. The real benefit is just the subscription gifts themselves, which are fairly substantial. Tool, decent paint brushes, etc, all good stuff. This has a reasonable value and doesnt add extra costs, just the sub.

No issue with 19 around here, newsagent I get mine from had extras on the shelf and another had them in his window. Not been to Smiths this week but if small cash only stores have them then I'd be surprised if big stores who want them cannot get them. Maybe it's down to stores who place larger orders as there are about 10 people have it every week where I get mine from.

The Premium does look poor - I think it should have included the art book or at least chuck people in extra scenery sprue or something. If GW released that it'd not go down well.

A lot of people on the FB Conquest group are only just receiving issues 15-18 due to Christmas. I was lucky to receive mine on December 23rd but I can understand why others are getting them late.

As for the new issue being scarce, I don't know. My newsagent has two in the window, which means they have sold one, but after that I don't know.

I’d say it wasn’t ‘clearly advertised’ in that they showed that stock photo but didn’t say much more verbally what was coming, but yeah certainly as you say whether all four would just be the same etc.. It is there that I think people expected / wanted more from the premium costs they are paying for it compared to normal.
I think there will still be quite a bit of complaining in the coming days/weeks about it. (Unfounded as to me it was clear it wasn’t worth it - for me anyway - though clarity varies by person I suppose..)

I feel that I missed a bullet with the "premium" content. That extra £1.50 an issue, so £120 over the course of the entire subscription, seems like a swizz thus far. If the remaining three drops are just more data cards, dice and play board then that is very poor value. The board looks like a pretty small size as well.

It looks like 1x1.
Which means only 2x2 at the end.

Originally I thought they were gonna be 2x2’s to give you an ok starting board..

Glad I never bothered with premium at this rate.

as for clearly advertised, check out the earlier pages of this thread where people are asking whats in premium, talking to the publishers, who don't appear to know either.

I do hope those cards find there way to the main game, with all the options etc and the sodding point values (fat chance of that), and the way things go they will have an errata all of their own

Hi,

I subscribed on 1st January and have not received any communication.
I've checked my account and while I have a subscription, it show's no other details, such as post or payments.

Is this normal after 2 weeks not to receive your first subscription?
