I'll be in for one box each of the marine stuff but the big question is can I resist buying the AoS Gitz box too... It's an awful lot of money to spend in one go, even with my FLGS discount, but the Xmas boxes are the best GW savings. unsure.png

The gitz box is really good imo. No rubbish in there.

I'm tempted by the marine box for all bar the captain and reivers... As I type that, would I be wasting my cash?! (Nothing against reivers but already have a squad and don't wish for a second.)

The Death Company box does seem a little weird, especially when it's cheaper to buy a 10 man Intercessor box than 2x 5 man boxes.

But I looked on the GW Webstore in the UK, and the 10 man Intercessor box (and the Eliminator box) are listed as 'No Longer Available Online' with 'Sold Out' watermarked on their product images. Other items are listed as simply Temporarily unavailable, and I know I've seen Intercessors in my local GW before lockdown with the new box art for 9th Ed. Anybody have any ideas what's going on?

I’m planning to just use the Death Company set as regular Intercessors. Since the Combat Patrol box comes with 5, this set will bring me up to 10. I already have firstborn jump pack Death Company, and I think regular Assault Intercessors have an edge over Death Company in having Objective Secured and taking up troops slots in detachments.

 

Anyone have any idea what the Assault Intercessors will be in USD?

 

I am guessing $60.

They use the terms ‘temporarily unavailable’ ‘no longer available online’ and ‘sold ‘out’ completely interchangeably on the website. Don’t read anything into the specific wording.

They seem to be having problems with stock at the moment. Either the lockdown has hit their manufacturing hard or they’ve actually got loads of stock but they’re having problems with despatch so they’ve listed stuff as unavailable whilst they deal with the backlog. My money is on the second as I know people are waiting on stuff they’ve ordered ages ago.

The warehouse is definitely struggling right now, especially the US one in Tennessee. Their retail stores are being told to do as little as possible to stress the warehouse (ie, not shipping back any returned product, minimizing their inventory, etc)

Plus, I know people like to whine about the low stock numbers at trade account stores and blame malicious GW for trying to run them out of business but the truth is that at least in the US their official stores are holding very little inventory as well, and won’t have a single battleforce in store. They’re trying to minimize the amount of inventory that would be locked in a store if that store’s state enacted another Covid lockdown and keep as much inventory at the warehouse as possible so that customers would continue to be able to order online.

Yup. This is from the owner of my FLGS:

Note "limit 1 per box" for ALL of the boxes :lol:

I wouldn't be surprised if they have minimal stock and because they have just about finishing fulfilling Indomitus MTO, they have had no time to do this years Christmas boxes beyond a token small amount just to say they did it. We will know when we see how fast they sell out from the bigger online sellers.

Limit one box per store? Bummer. I was hoping to find these on eBay for 15% - 20% off.

How big is the store? Clearly the limits are mailmerged in, since the text is a different colour. If it's a store that only makes monthly minimum orders they aren't going to be a priority for high demand stock.

Dont think it cares about size of store as its the same over here in NZ one of the biggest major flgs / wargaming shop, Mighty Ape who do online orders all over NZ isn't even able to do pre-orders just first come first served due to the low allocation they have literally just a handful of each box and apart from GW stores only real way of getting GW stuff since barely any others who sell it here in nz

He's been getting these limits since before he became a stockist.

Another one to chip in here with allocation. My FLGS has 0 allocation of all boxes, with apparently zero stock being available even before pre-orders have become available.

Really looks like a paper launch compared to an actual legit release.

It varies it seems. An online UK store posted they would get 50. Which is still a low number.

I am not surprised though, given the Rona.

The fact these are over £100 is a bit of a psychological barrier for me. 

 

Loosely tempted by the necron one but considering I have yet to clip any of indomitus off its sprues (or the recruit edition I bought for extras, of the 3rd/4th? edition battleforce with the extra destroyer included.....) I may give it a miss.

 

Need to keep telling myself - I'm trying to focus on Orks at the moment!
