I've not seen them list the west coast time for Oz before. Only the east coast, which makes sense given that the east coast of Oz has 10x the population.



They didn't listed any of México time zones at all. But that's usual.


You're in Central like me.

So 12 noon, unless you want to get into the queue with me at 10am.

Just to clarify there's 1 save of Dominion - however its split into 2 deliveries. As a result your store will likely take pre-orders for BOTH during pre-order week and depending what the store gets you might have to wait longer if you wind up in the second wave.

This is likely just GW having to account for reduced operational capacity in their own system and overload of the postal network in general.

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


Then I guess I'd better be on my way for me, the closest flgs is at 4 hours in car.

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


It was sarcasm; we are never included in pretty much nothing, from events to streams to anything.

It's hard to not be first world.

It was sarcasm, but here is the trivia for you: there are three time zones in México, and I do happen to be on central (I'm on the west coast, but anyway), yet, because I am on "Rest of the world", I'd have to wait 'til 4:00 am.

All I'm after is the rule book. If I were flush with cash I'd likely get it from GW just to get the coins and book and then pass on the rest (£40-50 an army or there abouts). But as I'm not right now I suspect I'll be in the ebay fight for a rule book from split boxes come release week/day

Had a bad experience with vouchers already.

You *can* order those right now, but they will only activate until the next working day, so, monday from now.

It goes without saying, don't do that.

You can use cards and PayPal right away, tho.

Overpriced, yes. The core rules are already free, the rest of the book is lots of lore. The next thing you want is the GHB.

Select items.

It’s already been broken down what will be on the three starters.
What will be the £80 sprue buy etc, and then what won’t appear at all (because getting multipart kid for instance.
I think Pig rider and wing woman may be not seen elsewhere?

Not 100% of course. But still

It will be extremely unlikely that any of the contents "will not be seen elsewhere".

We saw the sprues during the unboxing video. Several of us have broken down what the sprues have. There is one big "shared sprue" for each side that features the Big Boss character, special standard bearer, and the special unit which likely will not appear in a starter set. The "lesser" heroes are on shared sprues, one with each, while the other units each have their own sprues.

For the Stormcast? Huntress, Annihilators, and the standard bearer are all on a shared sprue.
Kruleboyz? Swampdog boss, Boltboyz, and Murknob are all on a shared sprue.

Friday night... 11.20pm. UK time. New AoS box not released till 10am the next day.
Trying to order some spray paints and a some pots of paint so they'll arrive early next week.
Queue time over 10 mins. Needed time to browse for new paints. Limited to 10 mins.
Meh. I guess fomo is now moving to the extreme with GW.

I assume tomorrow afternoon they'll be needing to change their name to Disappointed Workshop. Except we'll no doubt see people like Mad Doc telling us he got 2 from the online store and some from Element Games too.

I pity the poor GW staff in physical stores trying to process pre orders for customers on the in store terminals. This led to disappointment with Indomitus and probably will again.

A little bit more on the rules content of the Core Rules book:

The Rules

The first rules section of this book contains the core concepts you need to start fighting battles in the Age of Sigmar, taking you through deployment, the battle rounds, combat, magic, and more. The rules are laid out in a clear and concise format with additional commentary from the designers, making this the easiest rulebook to reference in Warhammer history.

Once you've got the basics squared away, find out all about the three core ways to play the game and the battleplans you can undertake in each.

Open Play
Let your imagination run wild as open play caters for re-enacting every kind of narrative storyline or tactical challenge you can think of, without restrictions.
– Includes the Open War Battleplan Generator, which provides pre-set Maps, Victory Conditions, Twists, and Ruses.
– Combining different options allows over 1,200 different types of Open War scenarios to be played.

Matched Play
Designed to put both players on an equal footing, matched play offers players an even chance of victory based around points-based army construction rules and a competitive set of battleplans.
– Includes additional special rules, including Stealing the Initiative, as well as rules for additional objectives scored on either a turn-by-turn or end-of-battle basis.
– Features much broader and more detailed requirements and restrictions than other game types, including restrictions on endless spells, reinforced units, and understrength units.

Narrative Play
Send your army on a Path to Glory and watch them develop across games with an overhauled section on narrative gameplay rules. Earn renown, gain new abilities, and even expand your army's territory while free of limitations on how, when, and where you can play.
– Includes rules and guidance on a 5-step process to starting a Path to Glory campaign, including: Choosing Factions and Realms, Starting Sizes and Territories, Orders of Battle, Core Enhancements, and picking Quests to embark upon.
– Provides guidance on how to fight battles against opponents both participating and not participating in a Path to Glory Campaign.

Conquest Unbound

The final section helps represent the vast array of battlefields and endless war that the overlords of the Mortal Realms fight across, including bespoke rules for the various, more niche type of battlefields you may come to fight, on, across, over, or indeed, under.

It includes three variant types of games for players to enjoy, including:

- Siege Warfare – all too often across the Mortal Realms, warlords and conquerors look to displace inhabitants of a territory or city that they have decided should fall under their control, and often the culmination of such a campaign is a brutal, no-holds-barred siege.

- Triumph and Treachery – sometimes duty calls for an all-out brawl between all of your enemies at once, and, when that happens, these rules can be used to represent battles that take place between three or more factions at the same time – all are frantically fighting to win the day against all other opponents, but will you be the one to come out on top?

- Tunnel Fighting – deadly, close-quarters combat is commonplace across the Mortal Realms as armies cluster into labyrinthine cave networks, perfidious skaven skitter through the city sewers, and mind-bending tunnels open up in the unpredictable domains of Chaos.

The Core Book closes out with a handy, alphabetised rules index and a photocopiable Path to Glory roster, Order of Battle, and Army roster.

The clearest explanation they've given is:

You need to "get up early and get on"

At [X] time, according to your location, it will go up for pre-order. (They said get on before that, 10 minutes was suggested)

Then, supposedly, at [X] time a line will form based on first come first served.

Anyone that got on before that time (they didn't clarify if this included their suggested 10 minutes) will be placed into the Queue at random.

So, if you get on 2 hours before [X] time, like I did last weekend, you go into a Queue, but supposedly NOT the same Queue as someone who gets on at [X] time.

This would mean that there's a holding bucket of anyone that goes to the site (I guess more than 10 minutes before?) where you are somehow randomly plucked out of and placed in line with people that queued up at the "proper" time.

Meaning the line/queue would be like: 1, 2, A random dude, 3, 4, 5, A random dude, 6, A random dude, 7, and so on

Or: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, last guy, then everyone in the bucket in a random order who gives a gak.

Personally, I think the line will look like this: 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8, and so on based off of who went their site and got chucked in the queue, in order, first to last regardless of what time you hit their site when they turned on the queue system.

Just like last week.

If they turn on the Queue at 10am, 4am, 1am, whenever... the first one in line will be the first one in line no matter when they say to get on.

At 15 copies for a large store this will be fun to try and get one. Why go through all the hype if they are not even going to make it available to order. I am thinking I am getting pretty sick of GW's shinanigans and I might just sell all my AoS stuff while I can make a few bucks on it.

That's kinda an extreme reaction when Indomitus is just a discount boxed set with models that will go on general sale anyway. The only things you miss out on are some objective coins and the cover for the rule book.


Everything else will be 100% exactly the same - models at least will be identical.


How do you cope when the Christmas Bundles go on sale and you perhaps can't afford one and they all sell out?

You mean, the models that are gonna come out a year, or maybe a few, later in a bundle half as expensive as the box itself (like Honoured of the Chapter) and there's going to be like 9 of them per box at best? In a bundle so horrendously overpriced for the contents I don't know a single person who would actually as much as consider buying it? Not counting the models that might not even come out ever again, at all, like the Lord Contagion?

Yeah I see no reason why anyone would be upset about this box being so extremely limited it's gonna sell out within minutes on GW's website.

Games Workshop are not your friends. They are not a small dev trying their best. They are a multibillion dollar company making calculated decisions about how many costs they can cut, how lazy they can be about relases, and how much they can paywall. They will do it again. Stop giving them money for this.

I work saturdays, so none of this for me.

Trying the Comics/LGS a block away from work. They're getting a single copy, and if it comes in and they remember/can find the sticky note, its mine.

Its taken me two stops in the store so far to get that much of commitment from them, so... we'll see how it shakes out.
Mind you, when I came in looking for Cursed City (which they ordered zero of), I was told I should have preordered, so I put in the work this week, made the request and yet am still left with doubt. I am, however, reminded why I haven't ever preordered anything from them before...

I had actually been hoping that since I went in before preorders officially started, they'd get on the phone with their GW rep and up their order count, but nuts to that, I guess.
