Got onto the pre-preorder list of my local store, so I should be fine. Not sure I even really want it with those weird lanky gitz and proper boyz showing up later for 40k.

But it seems like the queue is gone, so time to check out the 360°.



I decided to look at the site on my laptop instead of my phone, so now I'm stuck in the queue 20 minutes, though.

I left, because I can look at pics later, but what a strange experience.

Looking for a Skaven Doomwheel banner to repair my Nurgle knights.

Well before there was no domitus box equilavents for anybody to buy. Starter sets, start collecting, occasional 2 side boxes like the dok/slaanesh.



This is just a 2 sides box though?

Ah... like McDonalds stores closing in the UK because it got busy in the US. Hmm...
Seems to show a pretty lousy IT infrastructure on GW's part if this is the case.

That was a very pleasant experience. Logged in 30min after pre-orders went live. 17min wait in the queue while I hung out chatting with in-laws. Everything still in stock when I got in, checked out, done.

International store still running up. Single minute queues and aviable on every language. Tokens and FLC.

Impressive.

Yeah, Sigmarines are not as popular as popular as Space Marines, but I did expected to see lots of people flocking towards the new orcs.

As a note for North American customers:

Seeing as so much of the action finds itself in Ghur right now, the Ghurish Expanse Realmscape* is the ideal destination for your latest battles over the Dawnbringer Crusades’ landmarks, which you’ll find in the new Objective Set.

* Please note, although pre-orders are available today, this product will be delayed in shipping to customers in North America until the 31st of July. All other regions remain unaffected and will ship as usual.



Wonder if "North America" only includes US and Canada...

I agree. Although it was really frustrating when I wanted to 'pop on' the site to see 3D pics for the Admech models I was building today.

I just ordered the Dominion Box in the UK 9 hours after release and it was still in stock. My first foray into AoS. :-)

I do wonder though if;

a) GW made loads more having learnt from the Indomitus lesson
b) AoS is still far behind 40k in sales
c) The queue system put some people off and they tried other online stores rather than GWs

No. Battle Boxes don't come with a collector's edition rulebook or all new models.

Yeha, you can see them both built and painted on the Dominion's page, alongside two diffrent Bannermen. Seems like the sprue builds two diffrent squads of 10, and not 2 copies of 1 squad of 10.

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 was wondering if the banner had options. I saw a loose banner in the box, but it was next to the bannerman that had a banner already attached

Picked one up from Element. Initially tried to buy from Darksphere, but their copies are due to be shipped out in an autumn second wave, which I thought was a bit strange.


DarkSphere did a register of interest, so I’m guessing their first wave was all taken up by that.


I wasn’t aware of that. I didn’t get an email from them.


I don’t think anyone did, I just saw it on their webpage a couple of weeks or so ago.


Yeah there was an email, it was sent in the evening of the 24th May, its how i knew about their "register of interest" and also the day i put my name down on it.

I would guess D.) GW limited the amount available to stores and online vendors meaning that if people want them they gotta get them directly from GW. So now they get to sell the same amount yet make more profit for unit. Should also keep scalpers down. So a win for GW all around.

Your D) doesnt look to be the case. Several UK online retailers still have it as available 11 hours after release. For indomitus they were all sold out in an hour

I can empathize with that. I admit I know very little about servers, but I wonder if there could be an option to browse only (ie no shopping cart capability) that bypasses the queue.

Had a lot of stuff going on most of this morning and through lunch and had written off getting to pre-order. Just popped on line on a whim just now and was able to place my pre-order. Pleasantly surprised. Webstore is still slow to load or refresh, but call this a success. Now lets see if they deliver or if I get a nicely worded message saying something about something has gone wrong with my order.

Anyone care to place a wager?

Called my FLGS - turns out they forgot to put the pre-order up on their website (woops), but they were happy to get me a copy.

I could probably have tried to find a discount somewhere, but it's nice to finally have a good LGS so I'll support them when I can.

I'm pretty impressed that there still Dominion boxes for pre-order on the GW online store, a much better launch than that for Indomintus, although I can imagine there is less demand.

Maybe the queue helped smooth things over, but if you can still get it seven hours later, I’m not sure having it served a purpose. Maybe it deterred some scalpers from buying a hundred copies at a time…maybe…

My experience? I was #10117 in the North American preorder queue. It took me about twenty minutes to be allowed into the store. Obviously, you could still buy the set and books also at that point. Once in, the checkout still performed terribly, though. It took me almost ten minutes to get through the check out process.

I guess it is better than website crashes….but not by much.

We've been seeing hints of Chaos Dwarfs throughout Age of Sigmar. The Slaves to Darkness battletome even names them as the Furnace Kings of Azgorh. The following is presumably from the 'War at Amberstone Watch' booklet found in the Dominion box.

Not fan how so far games seem to be decided on battle tactics. Objectives fairly irrelevant. Well gw wants to push monsters so...

Also leads to itc style curse where army lists are made just on focusing on secondaries.

It was surprising to see the coins available eight hours after the pre-order went live at my region but I managed to resist the temptation. I had already promised to purchase a copy to support my local store so I am going there instead. I don't think I am going to actually collect either army but they look like fun to paint and try new basing techniques on.

I didn't expect Dominion to sell as fast as Indomitus or Cursed City but pre-order bonus lasting for hours was unexpected.

That place is the harsh dark future far left with only war left.
