I think the problem is that GW isn't particularly trying. The reinforcement points make a mess out of my plans, I've hoped some elites will be given a larger unit to compensate, but that did not happen. I think the CoS Phoenixes went down in points, which is nice.

So anyone got info on the white dwarf article featuring the ogor mercenaries of Excelsis? Haven’t been able to get the WD or find any info of it online.


Sure, it’s an expanded story about how the various destruction forces arrived around Excelsis including the ogres being inside the city.

Then some rules for the named giant who comes in from the sea and the ogre merc box.

It’s a decent extra chunk of narrative, not sure why it couldn’t have been in the book but more background is good.


But are there rules for using ogors with Order?


Yes(ish). So there are essentially three parts.
The narrative section giving a different perspective on the siege.
An article about building your own ogres and giants with the pre made rules for the two characters.
A multi part narrative campaign.

Order get to use the ogre and up to two ogre units in the first game before they turn traitor, you cannot have order within 3” of any ogres during the battle.

After that they turn and fight for destruction for the rest of the series (I think, I only glanced at the campaign bit).

Side note, the wrap up of the dwarf story was really interesting. A big reveal that wasn’t quite what I expected, but raises some interesting things none the less.

...and you will know me by the trail of my lead...

Well. I'm worried we are in for lumineth being top dogs. Core rules very good for them. Grand strategies easy 3 vp(keep one wizard alive? You need to be tabled to not get it basically...). Battle tactics don't look hard either and point increases were overall very mild.

First game without even trying to break list(and not having more than 30 sentinels) just reinforced the idea. Had rather easy win and maxed out on points. Each turn had several battle tactics to choose and headhunter grand strategy wasn't too hard either.

New rules also negated my worries when i got doubled. He got double, he did fairly little as redeploy and unleash hell plus heroic actions and all out on defence kept things in check.

Need to figure out what army i have can compete with lumineth. Aos2 it wasn't too bad. Aos3 is big buff to them.

One may ask why they are reducing the number

In more hopeful new: U.K. retailer outpost repeated what they did with cursed city. You had about a week to register a site account with correct and valid shipping and payment details , then send an email to them about dominion.

With cursed city only a fraction gitcranfoniy picked to buy the game.

With Dominion they announced today that ALL who registered interest will be able to buy a copy.

The following was posted by my FLGS on their Facebook page late yesterday:

AOS 3rd Edition Dominion Box customers - This was just sent to me today from Games Workshop.

We are experiencing a global shipping delay that is affecting our stock levels of the Dominion box set:

You will be receiving 15 copies of the Dominion box for the July 3rd launch

The remaining launch copies (to bring your total up to what you pre-ordered for launch) will arrive no later than August 7th

Any copies in excess of the launch pre-order (more than thirty) will arrive by the end of the year

Dark Sphere in the UK posted something similar about receiving more copies later in the year.

First wave of Dominion boxes is now fully allocated to the Register of Interest. We will not be receiving enough copies initially to fulfil orders for all people who submitted a request on the Register however we will be receiving a second batch of stock 'in the autumn' which will cover everyone.

'Pre-ordering Dominion Tomorrow? Here’s What You Need To Know' on Warhammer Community:

Spoiler:
The new edition of Warhammer Age of Sigmar is upon us! Tomorrow, you can pre-order the mind-blowingly awesome launch set, Dominion.

Excited? Us too – so here’s our three step guide to glory!

1. Set Your Alarm
As with previous launch sets, there are only so many copies of Dominion available. So, whatever you do, don’t sleep in this Saturday!

As with the new Warhammer pre-orders that are available almost every week, the exact time you can pre-order Dominion depends on where you are in the world.



2. Join the Queue
A queue system will be in place on the webstore this weekend. As with any queue, the length of time you have to wait will depend on how many people are trying to access the site. You needn’t stare at your screen the entire time, though – the queue page will give you an estimate of how long your wait will be.

3. Pre-order Your Set(s)
Once you get to the front of the queue, you’ll have 10 minutes to add everything you need to your basket and check out. To save time when it matters the most, remind yourself of all the Warhammer goodies that are available to pre-order from tomorrow by checking out last week’s Sunday Preview.

To make sure everyone has a chance to snag a copy of Dominion, you’ll be limited to two copies per order.

One final note – global shipping has had a bumpy time of late, and while there might be some delays, rest assured that your copy of Dominion will be winging its way to you as fast possible.

Right then, time to go set that alarm…

So you can order two boxes of Dominion, not one.

Sounds very similar to Indomitus. I fully expect that GW will do a "Made to Order" at some point after this initial release.

I don not expect an announced Made to Order due to the info GW has sent out to some of the shops (see my post here).

Shipping delays, Site queues, limited numbers to stores, 2nd waves, precise opening time to preorder... Its clear its going to sell fast.

2nd wave in the end of the year is good news to me though.

What it doesn't say, is when the queue system goes live.

It says to order at a certain time, not when the line starts.

If you show up at the time listed to order, you're going to be in the back of the line.

It doesn't sound so much as a second wave later in the year, just that any pre-orders they receive that they don't have stock for will be sort of an automatic 'Made to Order' for the excess.

Yeah, I saw your post. That doesn't mean that they won't end up doing a Made to Order anyway.

So they list the Queue start time as the same time to order?

That's, no correct at all....lol

My time 12 Noon Central in the U.S. is the time listed to Pre-Order and it has always been that time.

Last week I was put into the Queue at 10am when I got on to check.

So 2 hour before, at least.

Anyone before 10 gets put in the queue randomly at 10.

I guess if you believe that.

If you get in line AT the time the Order goes live you will be put in an actual line and be served in order BEFORE someone that "got in line" 2 hours ahead of you.....yea right.

A time stamped, browser based, cookie is dropped on to your PC so you can walk away or refresh the page 50 times and not lose your place.

Yet their web coding is so good it will recognize that you got on at 10am and are 200th in line, where I got in line at 8am, so you get to go first and I get to go at some random point.

[Edit] I have access to about 5000 computers, I'll give it a test and let you know how it works out.

It's consistent. Pre-orders go up at 10am in the Western most time zone of the country (e.g., 10am PDT for the US means it goes up at 1pm EDT for me).

Yah. Possible it's error and gets errataed but if not it's real hard between lambient light t1 caster or blade of leaping gold/flaming sword combo.

It also got effective point drop though unable to pass saves on 2's is loss. Effective 1+ wasn't too hard. -1+ possible with every possible buff.

Yea slaanesh players got shafted. 3rd biggest price hike.only dok and tzeentch(mainly flamers and their kind and weirdly kairite acolites) got off worse.

But as to why? Maybe reduce entry barrier. Less models, less money needed.helps getting new players. Also faster games.

Players don't drop point level of games.

I would be very thankful to anyone who explains me if there is going to be another wave of Dominion or if the current one are just going to get orders delayed for the Rest of the world site (I don't have a flgs).

That would help me a lot.

From what is being said by independents, there's another wave of them hitting in the fall.

My understanding is that ROW[English] uses the US timezones for preorders, as their orders get fulfilled from the US warehouses.
