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.


I presume that costs more money than shipping it all over everytime.

There are regional HQs, yes. But production (for most things, including almost all models, terrain being the only typical exception) is in Nottingham.

There is a warehouse in the US. And you aren't.

But I'm in México. It's kinda dumb to wait for a package to cross the pond if I could take one from the States or Canada instead. Kinda the same goes for the entire Americas. Third world problems I guess.

His foot looks like it has a terrible mold line. I can't imagine it's two separate pieces that they joined together...
I don't think it's edge highlighting either

OK...? Location tags aside (I have no knowledge of where you really are, or any particular reason to care), I could see an argument for Mexico. Though import/export rules, laws, tariffs, and shipping costs that I'm not aware of could easily counter that.

It is definitely not the same for 'the entire Americas.' Shipping to the US and then out to various parts of South America is almost certainly not worth the cost, even if the market for Warhammer products exists there in sufficient numbers. GW would certainly know what kind of distribution system makes the most sense in terms of cost and market.

You're talking about the line along the top of the foot? Sigmarine boots are not round. They have a ridge there. A highlight should definitely go there according to 'Eavy Metal style, whether a mold line runs along it or not.

However I tend to think the mold lines would be on the side of the leg rather than the front and back.

Thanks to [Redacted topics] over the last four years, things like shipping and receiving to and from the central and south Americas are an absolute dumpster fire. In addition I have heard that things in that area of the country where their US Warehouse are a mess covid wise, even worse than other larger population errors due to [more redacted topics] and viral spread. In the states, for those who don't know finding workers right now is basically impossible. At my job we've had a position open for the last 9 months, in which we've increased the slalary four times in order to entice folks to come and work. We just filled the position about three weeks ago. So it's possible that shipping from the US just isn't possible at the current time.

Price list

Boltboyz are expensive for 3 minis, Praetors cost the same so I guess that’s now the price for 3 man sets (Annihilators aside). Looks like Anasta Malkorion goes on order this weekend (1 week early) she’s on the price list anyway and if she’s there it should mean that retailers will get some stock as direct only minis don’t go on the price list.

Haha I've been debating about picking them up, not gonna lie. $11 for 10 models is a great deal and they were my favorite kruleboy unit

£31.50 for Hobgrots. That better be a 20-man unit.

According to Next Week in Warhammer preview, that is a 20-man unit indeed.

Welp, then i can't really complain. It's cheaper than all three previous 20-man unit boxes they made for AoS.

Have to say the prices seem fine, after the nonsense that was the 40k starter set. 10 Vindictors for £31.5 is good value. Not better than ebay, but not too far off given everything.

Nah, they're a full kit, not a repack of the one from Dominion.

They are different kits. The new box will probably be fairly monopose but with a few options like the champion banner and head.

Boltboys can't be same sprues. As for vindictors yea almost same sprues bu' at least for price of starter you get double the vindictors.

While you could try splittrng with somebody for orruks...you are unlikely to get more than halved price so at best you just get extra heroes which you don't need more than 1 really(even 1 is suspious use atm) and at least i have found getting rid of kruleboyz bit hard(not helped by gutrippas not comlng with command).

So vindictors isn't worst deal gw has done. Way more sensible than with necron warriors. It's basically "2 free knight arcanum if you can find somebody to split 2 warrior starters" and knight arcanum's aren't something you want to spam. Certainly i already have 3 already so if i want 10 more vindictors isn't on my cards

Gutrippas you would be getting half the price but no command plus free shaman. If you combo with reqular box that has 2 musicians and spare banner from somewhere(ardboyz good) you can get basically 2 boxes for 1.5 price. So kruelboyz can find use for some though realistically not more than 3 boxes. Not many need more than 60 gutrippas

Knight Arcanum isn't something you want even one of, so it's kinda a dead mini or conversion fodder. Pot shaman, on the other hand...
