I recieved an email from gw telling me there will be a slight delay for my order, for a non specified problem. Weird, maybe they get too many orders?

Maybe - could just be general logistical issues in the age of COVID though

I got that message from GW on the 16th as well, but stranger thing is that I just checked today and the order isn't even listed on my GW account. Is it listed for y'all? I reckon they would've informed if they had actually cancelled the order but still seems odd for it to not be listed at all.

The Green Wolf cadian officer has fully funded on Kickstarter and all the stretch goals have been unlocked. Know these are expensive bits of plastic but I’m delighted about this. They are open about wanting to do more and seem to have a real passion about guard regiments. I for one would definitely buy a death korps and a ghost. These figures suit cloth so a Templar with full tabard would be amazing and an Eldar farseer just to finish off.
From the reaction from backers it seem death korps will be a cert.

For whatever reason, that happens when things are significantly delayed, had that happen with something last year. It's not convenient, but that is how it works for whatever reason.

Funny timing, just got a new "order details" email (well, two actually for some reason) half an hour ago, and with it the order now shops up on the website too. Says it should ship within 2 working days.

Same thing except for me it was always visible. Now, after I saw your post my order says the same. 

Weird thing it's says that my order was submitted 23 october, which is not true obviously. I don't know...

I guess we will see saturday.

Not wanna spam, just an update on the situation. On my account still says "shipping in 2 day".. for a week now.

I sent an email asking politely what's goin' on, got an auto-response in which they said they have an overflow of emails and an answer can wait even 10 days...

 

On amazon I can buy this model but it costs 50 euros + shipping...

 

I'm no rush at all but a clear response would be great.

There was a similar problem when Crusade and dice went up for pre-order. I wanted to change my order and emailed them the same day; they only answered after it had shipped the next week.

Their email response time is abysmal right now.

I got one of the unpainted Primaris on Amazon today. Not really my thing normally but I thought I'd give it a bash as I thought I could use it for posing conversions and I am impressed, may have to break out the sculpting tools and add some details as a fun project. It's very imposing.

Yes I order one from Amazon also. I ordered it 21/10 and it was here 23/10. I think for £24 it's pretty good if I'm honest and has a fair amount of weight to it. One day I may even get around to painting it lol 😂

There were 1 each of the Ultramarine, unpainted and necron at the Edinburgh Warhammer store early last week... but didn't get any. Checked online, and there were very few places left that had any in stock (it wasn't a very thorough search though). So went back in on the Wednesday... and the unpainted one was gone, so I bought the ultramarine with the intention of repainting it. The idea of using it as an 'artists dummy' for checking where light/shadow should fall on a mini is interesting...

 

As of Wednesday this week, there was still a necron. But I didn't want that one! happy.png

Are these suckers limited ed? I've been waiting for mine to ship too, was supposed to be received yesterday, now I got a message "we'll email you in the future with a delivery date". Sounds like my order was taken without sufficient stock available. I already got censored.gifed with the Bandai figure cause GW jumped between they were going to send it to my local store, then to my house, then eventually they couldn't tell me where it even went. Pretty lame for it to happen to me again.

Big Bad Toy store. I already got a few of them and they still have them all in stock. They even have thousand dollar statues of Logen Grimmer and one of Roboute Guilliman fighting a chaos dude.

That’s horrible for what happened with your Bandai figure. Sorry that happened to you. I hope something can be worked out so you get one. That should not happen to anyone.

They arent limited run as far as we know.
Its going to be a ongoing line with more primaris and atleast 1 of each Race,its been a idea at GW for decades(normal marines then)that could never get the go ahead or atleast that the rumor i heard from someone semi reliable (ex-design studio) but pinch of salt obviously

Hmm yeah, still hasn't shipped, eternally "order ships within 2 working days". So it indeed seems they exceeded their stock and have to wait for a new batch. Not that I'm in any particular hurry, mind you, so long as I do actually get it eventually. Lack of announcements about the matter is...  less than optimal. I realize COVID is still messing up things and so forth, but it takes one person to make one post in Twitter, FB or WHC.

Exactly my thoughts.

It's the lack of comms that I don't appreciate.

I hope at least in the future waves (SoB,etc.) they will be more prepared about it.

Thanks guys. Nice to know I haven't missed out. 

 

PS- Isn't it funny that a 7" tall, fully articulated, pre-painted model is cheaper than a 32mm static pose model sold unpainted and unassembled?

Considering the as heck is probably made in China, by someone paid a bowl of rice, working in a factory with questionable work conditions, no not really.
