To complain is to express annoyance at the state of events or situation one is in. You guys are expressing that you are annoyed at the fact GW has not communicated at all about the delays. The word fits perfectly.

Arguing semantics and trying to make us look like we don’t have a valid point .
Nah, I'm quite happy about the delays. I have previously expressed that I wished GW would ease up and slow down on the relentless release pace. While this isn't what I had in mind I am still glad things have slowed. I am just also capable of understanding there is a communication issue separate from my experience. I suppose the ultimate error in this discussion was mine, for assuming you were applying a degree of intellectual depth to the matter when clearly you have chosen not to.

But hey, you tell businesses that communication with their customers is bad and they should stop. Obviously you know more than they do.


Thanks for joining the Ignore list. I wasn't directing any attacks against you but you seem to be directing the attack directly back at me. As you said, the ultimate error was on your end, and like they say about your assuming .....I'll leave it there.

At least Bullgors, compared with other nonsense AoS naming, have a reason for exist and follow the decades old "gor" naming taxonomy of beastmen.

Dakka does have White Knights and is also rather infamous for it's Black Knights. A new edition brings out the passionate and not all of them are good at expressing themselves in written form. There have been plenty of hysterical responses from both sides so far. So we descend into pointless bickering with neither side listening to each other. So posting here becomes more masturbation than conversation.

Are people not upset emotionally about something that we all know for a fact is standard operating procedures for businesses in the current era?

The answer is yes.

Frustrated or annoyed perhaps. But even being happy with the situation does not prevent me from seeing GWs radio silence for the mistake it is.

It seems like some individuals are only comprehending a criticism in relation to personal emotion and do not consider that they can be made independently. Perhaps that is something they themselves are unable to do; rarely adopting a position themselves which isn't emotionally driven. So they apply the same logic to other people which while flawed in this instance is not an inherently bad way to go.

But that probably isn't true, it's me assuming the best. More likely they fully understand the nuance and simply want to troll rather than have discussion in good faith.

Well, if they're minotaurs, I don't think they'll be intended to be part of the beastmen with their current background : in AoS, they still hate civilization, so would be weird if they "came from Varanspire hellforges".

That's why my bet is more on ogroids...if the story's intention was to tease new miniatures and not just adding a lil flavor like flying shark predators for the Kharadron Overlords.

Not great or terrible just a big snooze.

Honestly - feels like every GW effort for Lizardmen since the initial creation in 5th and update in 6th.

Other armies get pages of magical items, LM get a handful with *sometimes* powerful but situational effects and mostly once per game.

Ummh. What artefacts slaves to darkness got? Sob got none. They got 2 battalions' 1 grand strategy and was it 3 battletactic. Grand stratngy sucked, battletactics situational.

This was bigger level of wd update so far.

I'm speaking in broad generalizations throughout the entire history of Lizardmen/Seraphon - I'm not comparing this specific AoS 3.0 White Dwarf update to another specific AoS 3.0 White Dwarf update .
In general, in my opinion, GW likes to give Lizardmen (and now Seraphon) items and powers that function once per game, and/or are very situational.
This is merely an observation based on my limited knowledge of this one particular army and is no way an attempt to rate their relative power against any other army or to take away from any other armies who may rightly claim to have more one-use items and even more situational abilities.
Please enjoy your time on the Internet.

You are missing point of these wd updates. But that's all right. Not everybody is able to look beyond own faction and just narrow mindedly wants his faction get more than others and even when get that still complain.

You obviously haven't been following Seraphon for the last couple of years then. The most recent battletome is widely considered to one of the most flavourful books in AoS with a wide variety of extremely potent abilities. Unfortunately they went a little overboard in some cases so the book is a bit too powerful. A quick of the artefacts found just three once per battle abilities out of 29 command traits or artefacts in the book.

Sucks the kit people really want looks like it will be pushed to 2022... BUT I would rather that then it be released earlier but each store only gets 1-2 boxes.

I'm not sure we can read that out of the article. There's a shipping problem, yes, and that commonly means China is involved. Especially with GW launching releases in the past while accepting delays in one country or another.

However, it's conceivable that so many countries were affected this time around that they don't want to start selling the dragons where they are available.

It also doesn't make a whole lot of sense for GW to produce the dragons of all things in China. They are for all we know a normal model kit that is not easily distinguished from other kits the way terrain kits are, being a wholly different category of model.

There's not enough information to make that claim. Or outright dismiss it, for that matter.

I don't get it, how does the online webstore works? is there a main HQ in each country or everyone in the world depends on UK?

Because I don't get why they just have an american warehouse for all the american countries, instead of having to share my waiting times with the international store.
