I got tired of going around to several gaming stores to get the paints I needs. Some are 40 mins in one direction and the other is 40 mins.

i finally gave up and buy from the games workshop website. how long does it take to come in. I ordered recently ordered something from them but didn't keep track of how long it took to come in

Usually 24 working hours. So that translates to about 4 days on average. At least for the free shipping (which is what I always do).

I'd say just make the drive though. Honestly. I'd buy from my LGS but they don't stock like anything (usually a couple of boxes of marines, ork boyz, things like that) so I just order from GW cuz it's the same price, no shipping, and it comes straight to my house.

All my orders have been within a week, as I usually order on Fridays.

I haven't ordered anything since bits went out, but when I did their service was awesome. And if they screw up, they usually overcompensate.

Yeah. Buddy of mine got skull pass and it was missing a book and a couple dwarves were messed up, he called GW and got a whole nother skull pass box. He's sitting happy with a ton of goblins.

well i have always got my orders from GW within a week of making the order.
and after the screw up with my local store he better compensate me nicely or i will be getting everything from mail order.

Can depend on whats been ordered i've never waited longer than a few weeks but know people to have to wait longer. At one point there was a 4 week wait for one of the IG Commissar's.

You in the states? If so and you're going to order online anyway I'd hit up thewarstore.com (or some other online store of your preference). They sell at 20% off GW's prices and usually have decent shipping rates. If you're feeling a bit more adventurous (and don't mind a longer wait) you can play the exchange rate game and order from overseas. I'm not sure how the exchange is at the moment though.

If you're in the UK I've found most of my orders arrive in 3 to 4 working days after ordering, that's also using the free shipping option.

Here in England I have found that dispatch speed is something GW do very well. I havnt had to wait more than about 3-4 working days.

Depends where you live, what you ordered, from where, when, and if the post office are going on strike ( officially or unofficially) again...

yeah 3-4 days sounds right. About how long my last order took to come on. I feel almost bad that I have to do this, but my local gaming stores don't provide and often is to much
