OK!

According to this:

https://www.warhammer-community.com/2021/01/10/sunday-preview-plague-bearers-and-ring-wearers/

this coming Saturday is my shot at the LE Alpharius book.

Should I be looking for it on Black Library's site, or GW's main site?

And it will pop in at 1PM EST on Saturday, right?

And given the whole time zone thing, across the world, how exactly does Black Library handle that when it comes to limited numbers of books for sale?

Main site, they don’t do them on the Black Library site anymore. They have a certain number for different timezones (so they won’t all sell in the UK before they even go up in the US, if that’s what you’re worried about).

Be there before the release time because whilst there is a set time, sometimes things go up just before. 20mins before would be good and then make sure you've got your payment details saved and such to process quickly etc...

That was one of the things I was worried about - thanks!

Thank you!

I'll get there early, and make sure my payment particulars are good to go...

With regards to payment, this has helped me immensely in the past with these purchases, buy an e-voucher in advance so you have enough credit on your account for a fast one-click checkout, as you don't have to deal with the hassle of waiting for a credit card or Paypal account to clear the transaction.

It's an Alpha Legion book. If you order it you might get a pretty wrapped copy of "The Cat in the Hat" with a post it saying Thanks for funding our espionage efforts.

Someone on Reddit said somewhere in the $60-80 range, but there should be a pricelist floating around somewhere in one of the many GW threads.

They're usually 40 English pounds, so whatever your gee dub inflated currency conversion to that is.

My worry would be not getting it still, and having a £50 voucher that I probably won’t use for much else - I don’t buy a lot from GW direct!

Does anyone use the actual Black Library site for anything anymore? I can’t remember the last time I bought anything from it directly. I only use GW main site. Not sure if BL site even sells physical books anymore

If they'd accept Paypal I'd buy more ebooks and audio dramas from there, but it is for some reason CC only still.

It's poorly put together for finding stuff that isn't the latest release unless you know the title and use search. Heck for some reason they "ran out of tab space" so all the Old World and a bunch of other stuff is all lumped into one messy listing.
They DO have everything they sell and GW doen't use DRM on their digital books if that is important to you (otherwise Kindle ebooks do). But it is messy to navigate and its hard to see what sets books are in (series) or what short stories are in collected editions etc...

Heck I had to make this

https://warminiatures.wordpress.com/2018/08/31/warhammer-fantasy-classic-black-library-listings/

over a few long afternoons just to make sense of the Old World publications. Did one for AoS too (because there they like to put the same stories into different collected editions)

Livid. I had it in my checkout from 9:55, website down for maintenance for me for 20 minutes, sold out. Reports of people managing to get both Alpharius and Mortis, and obviously scalper copies on eBay for £140.

They really need to sort the web store out if they’re gonna release 2 LEs the same day.

Yeah, that was a total gakshow.

I has to put in my one time passcode for Mortis eight times, so if I get charged £400 I won't be happy.

Well, if you end up with 8, I’ll be happy to relieve you of one of them.
