most likely the may 7th is "may 7th in north america and the UK" hazarding a guess, NZ and Australia are proably linked the the North American distribution chain

ANZ is it's own chain, but going by UK dates makes total sense. So Saturday for us, which is their usual new release day.

Whups - tomorrow is Friday. Funny how time becomes when you're mostly locked down...

Yeah they have said that the switch is happening at 1400 BST, I guess they forgot that time zones exist as it will then be the 8th here!

Thats one way of looking at it! to be fair I told myself I'd buy no more, but I'm tempted to buy Gotrek gurnisson!

Edit, just been on the site. still queue systems in place.. I'll probably just buy him from element games if I decide to.

Maybe they know about you and your quest to paint certain things in white?

Also, what of those gobbos of yours?

I shouldn't be one to talk though, finally got my sisters in, soooo...

Had a huge Disciples of Tzeentch order before they closed up distribution with a major online shop. Said shop told me all the most popular items were sold out...

Webstore re-opens fully stocked, and yet the retailer I ordered from says GW shows many of those items as unavailable.

Strange half-reopening, it seems.

11527pts Total (7400pts painted)

4980pts Total (4980pts painted)

3730 Total (210pts painted)

Not really strange. They've been shut down for a while, and the front page says 'Limited Stock and Availability.' A surge in demand after closure, limited stock after closure and (hopefully) a little more cautious of their working conditions rather than pumping full bore... yeah, limitations aren't a surprise.

Efficiency is the highest virtue.

I think that's the biggest order I've placed. 1 boxed set, 1 codex and supplement book, some paint.. and Santa Grimnar cause I've been meaning to snag him

Because the webstore stock isn't the same as that available to retailers or even GW shops themselves.

Back on topic, I hope GW are able to quickly start supplying independent stores.
Ours is pretty much picked clean. People were even eying Age of Sigmar stuff.

Far as I recall FW doesn't hold huge amounts of stock even at the best of times. So chances are they can't bring it online to take orders without having the factory online and that might still be proving a challenge for them. I just REALLY hope we don't see removals from FW when it comes back online. AoS lost a good chunk of really great models around Christmas (yeah that's a great time to go removing £100 models form your specialist store...) and I really hope we don't lose more. 40K side I feel wants their new book out to spike sales interest and the 30K lot must be going nuts as they can't get ANYTHING AT ALL

That's true. I've been looking forward to buying Zhufor the Impaler, the Blood Slaughterer, the Eightfold Harvest Lord, and possibly some World Eater accessories for some time now.

So is there any point in seeing it more than once? Is there a joke it builds to?

That being said I do love the concept of James Workshop, that's an even more obviously made up name than their other spokesperson, Sir Ian Livingstone CBE.

There's a slightly different ending each time. You could probably skip forward to see the progression. And there's a gotcha joke at the end.

This is a bit of a necro for just a.quesrion, but I read that the UK had a plan for "reopening" as earlier this week.

Anyone know who this might effect GE resuming the release schedule?

GW issued a trading update (over here: https://investor.games-workshop.com/) when it reopened its warehouses for shipping. It's very likely they'll do the same once they reopen their factory and restart production.
Until then, the release schedule is kinda freezed as they can only distribute whatever they manufactured before March.
