Why are people complaining the item nobody wants to buy is sold out?

Interesting take when the evidence suggests otherwise.

It makes you wonder what the thinking was. Maybe gw deliberately charged a stupidly high price because they knew they hadn't made many. Here in Japan the expansion is the equivalent of £45 and it still sold out in a flash.

This feels so weird. Both the German and English version of Nightwars are still available on the German webstore after an hour and a half.

The thinking may have been that a lot of people buy expansions for the models, not the paper. If they make an expansion without models, much less will sell. It would be in line for GW to underproduce for fear of being left with excess stock.

I wish.

Checking after two hours, the English version is gone. Everyone just sleeping in, I guess.

At this rate I'm almost convinced someone at GW management HATES CC and wants it to fail.

I'm more shocked at there being zero bundle discount or anything. You will spend more for the expansion than the core game and have not even half the models!

From GW website £156 for the 5 models and Nightwars expansion

Or

£125 for Cursed City which contains 60 models, rulebooks, cardstock, game boards

German version is still there, and I even bought a copy (sigh...).

I have no intention to buy Radukar or that Vampire Lord though.

I was hoping there was a package deal with the models. The only Cursed City product on the NZ site is the novel.

Cursed city and its expansion have been delayed in New Zealand and Australia until sometime before Christmas.

Scalpers seeing how much the Blackstone Fortress expansions going for wanting another slice I suppose.

Honestly unlikely on this one. If it had models sure, but with how bumpy a road CC has been release wise and how much of it is still on sale on ebay at pretty cheap prices, I'd wager scalpers are saving coin for other releases.

Don't forget their intent is to buy low sell high. The CC cardstock expansion is already selling high. It's far more likely GW has under-ordered compared to expected demand than it is scalpers have swooped in for the kill.

The re-release made it 'cheap', but before it was announced they were going for more than double RRP.

The core game is available, it's only the supplement that's sold through.

Really annoyed by lack of stock for this. I had a marathon start at the same time as preorders went live and it was sold out everywhere by the time I finished. Given how stock has been so much better recently I didn’t think I would need to stop mid run to preorder. The expansion has now been completely removed from the GW website which is never a good sign for it getting a reprint.

For those who are interested and for whom it is an option to order from Germany: kutami.de seems to still have stock of the English language version (20% off rrp). In German it's already gone.

Plenty of copies still available for those looking to immigrate to the States.

If I were GW I wouldn't have made a lot of copies just because who could say if it would be popular? Then again that silly knight expansion for HeroQuest sold like crazy, people like expansions.

It is what it is, but I would've at least included the easy-to-build Sepulchral Guard and the quest book content for them to be the opening act of the expansion. That would have provided the missing value.

Well that is a regular occurance in a toxic corporate environment, which GW definitely is.

So $50 for a couple sheets of cardstock and a booklet, and the main game has a "Usually ships within 90 days" disclaimer.

Eyup. I'm definitely going to do that, GW.
What are all the giant eyeball, vampire faces and raven tokens for, anyway?

1) They have some use in the game.
2) They're completely useless.
3) They're just in there to annoy you.

You can just say you don't know, or simply say nothing.
Presumably someone familiar with the base game has a guess as to why oversized cardstock tokens the size of map squares are useful for this miniatures game?

Yep, that was a price check since prices can be wonky for some things now with currency fluctuations and a new competitive discount from one AU retailer in particular. I've got mine on order.

Might be that the few people saying that they won't buy it on one particular forum aren't full representative of the wider market?

Also, we all know what happend with the initial release, so people who want the thing probably are less likely to decide to wait and see on this expansion...

Fair enough. I don't like the format for this release, but I do like CC and have the models that I like from the "proper" ones anyway - and nice WHU models for the others.

Well, I thought you are familiar with the game, sorry. The large markers with the rats are presumably the same as the gravetide - some kind of rampaging endless spell. With the rats I guess it's something Kritza would use, not just in specific quests like the gravetide. The vampires and their gravestones are self-explaining. The eyes... the weird Vampire Lord with bats in the hair turned out to be Carmilla DuSang with a huge spy network in Ulfenkarn. Eye tokens would be natural.
