I ordered the slaves to darkness splintered fang box through my FLGS
three weeks ago and the owner says it still hasn't arrived.
Is this normal? This seems like a crazy long wait time even given Coronavirus etc.
Did they actually order it from GW
or did they order it via a distributor? Did they actually order it three weeks ago or did they order it as part of their bigger order to avoid shipping fees? Even though it's marked as "available to order"(which is how they mark Direct Order items), it did
get a splash release originally and was
available via distributors for a bit.
Tneva's times are a bit longer as Sweden isn't likely a 'region' for GW
, outside of having a webstore. Everything likely gets distributed for them via the UK
...which, dunno if you heard, has been involved in this crazy thing called "Brexit".
Bluntly, if something is marked as 'available to order'? Unless you see them actually place the order then and there, assume it won't be done until they have to place their big order for the stock the next week. Because otherwise it likely does cost them shipping fees...and items placed to order? They don't get their usual discount.
