How do?

Well now. Looks like us in the U.K. are in for a treat of sorts. Given the past year threw a spanner in everyone’s works, and many of us missed out on Store Anniversaries.

This year? Looks like every U.K. store is having its anniversary on the same day.

This means exclusive models (which I’m a slag for), and some additional spend related rewards. You can see what those are in the pic I’ll attach.

At the time of writing, it’s only Warhammer Salisbury that has the written info, but all the stores in my local area have the “coming soon” bit on their FB pages. So I’m confident it’s happening when it says, Saturday 22 - Sunday 30 May 2021.

For those elsewhere? Especially those without native Warhammer Stores (yes, what follows is a shameless plug), come join the Loot Group on Facebook, and we’ll see if we can’t help out. Certainly if I get enough requests, I may end up with spares of the freebies.

They’re new one. Should have the pics somewhere on my iPad. Bear with.

They’ve been available at a handful of US store anniversary’s, but this looks to be the big ‘un.

using highly advanced zoom & enhance technology, yeah, looks like the two minis previewed here, unless they're just placeholder images for now or something.

The AOS one is very cool but it's only the Necron one that I'm after. Has anyone posted the rules for him online yet? I've seen some folks on IG have him painted but no idea what he does.

I think he just counts as a regular Cryptek

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.

Yeah, just a common or garden Cryptek.

Anniversary Models are named, but not named characters for game purposes. Primaris ones however do tend to come with unique weapon load outs.

Ah, ok. I presumed they had unique rules due to the naming. This is my first rodeo.

Most people are prolly just gonna run him as a Technomancer with a Control Node, because the current plastic Technomancer is very blatantly wearing the Canoptek Cloak.

Also an interesting opportunity to catch up on the collectors coins, if they’re your jam.

Makes mental note to bug GW manager at the start of the month.

I forget the divisions* but isn't the bag typically at the £200 or so mark?



*and I think store managers have some wriggle room

Erm....something like that?

Chap in the Loot Group shared the Australian bracket, but it’s hard to translate them from £GWP (not a typo).

If memory serves, the top spend tier is “one of everything, including the models”, unless the spend is purely on the Anniversary Models.

Hopefully we’ll know more soon.

To find out the UK price when looking at an Australian price, convert it to £ and then halve it.

Ain’t no one got time for that!

But, Warhammer Epsom (the store that was the making of me) has provided this timely info graphic.

Please note the dice are for scale, and not included, according to Warhammer Tunbridge Wells.

Not that I need more dice, but it’s disappointing they can’t even include those cheap basic dice for such things if they’re gonna use them for scale anyway.

Does anyone know if the models will be limited stock and first come, first serve? Or will you be able to order them on the day if they’re sold out?

I’ve never actually been able to make a store anniversary event before, so unsure how they’d normally run them.

Generally the store will have a limited number on the day, then you can order them for later delivery.

Yeah. Generally they’ll have a “one per customer” on the day on physical stock, but allow you to order as many as you want in.

In the normal run, the order is in one week, delivered the next. Right now? Who knows!
