Hey,

Firstly, sorry if this is already covered somewhere else, I've done a search but couldn't find it.

Has anyone from the UK received their dark eldar pre-orders yet? If so when did they arrive?

I'm waiting on a codex, and quite a few people on here seem to have them by now.

Thanks

Gonders

Nothing in the US as of yet. If it's not here by Wednesday I'm going to cancel mine and just pick up the stuff in the store.

No sense in pre-order miniatures I won't be able to do anything with till Saturday anyway. And I'm not worried about stores somehow being sold out. It's not like they're space marines or anything.

My pre-order says "dispatched" on it now. It says it takes 1-9 days to get it for the free shipping and 1-2 for express. I'm guessing that the longest shipping was used.

I'm in AUS and its telling me that my order is still be processed, luckily the turn around time on orders here isn't that long and as the 6th is a Saturday they will normally get it too me by Thursday/Friday

I'm curious if ill get mine before the 20th, since I ordered Urien Rakarth along with the codex itself. Cant blame me for hoping :P

says "order being processed" on mine, all they say is that they'll have it to you on or before the day of release. Given that's a saturday, it should be there be Friday, and you can't really ask for anything more. How long do you normally have to wait for it to come through the post? Once my orders have been dispatched they're normally here the next day.

Mine says dispatched as well in the U.S. So hopefully I will get it before the 6th:)

Mine says the order is being processed. But it still says that about my last order that I recieved back in May. :confused:

I'll get my stuff when I get it.
I've no chance of getting any of it before release, in fact I'll be amazed if it turns up before the end of the month.
I ordered some stuff that is released on the 20th, and I opted for the order not to be split.
with the postage time to Saudi, it'll take a while.

However my friend received his Blood Angel codex a good 4 or 5 days in advance of the main release...

Orcboy_Phil

I know a friend had his stuff turn up yesterday or before. He came to games night anyway with the codex and a box each of warriors, wychs and reavers.

Promethius
02-11-2010, 09:58
Mines not here, but it says processing on the main menu, and then when you click into the order it says posted. I'll be miffed if it turns up after release date, very little point advance ordering something if you get it later than you would have from the store.

I always have my pre-order stuff 3 or 4 days before official release (I even get my IG codex one week before). I hope it will be the same for the DE codex

Just out of curiosity, how much time passes between your order being dispatched and it arriving at your door?

I don't know yet... I'll let you know when it arrives :)

For me it's about 2 working days even with the free shipping option.

@zis Regular post to Finland from the UK takes 3-4 working days. Meaning if it were posted today it might arrive by Friday, otherwise you'll looking at Monday the earliest.

Those in the UK will probably start getting theirs tommorrow, or Thursday.

Until advance orders really delivers early, by say a couple of weeks, I don't see the point in paying up front for getting stuff only a day or two early. After all you can eye ball the codex and models at your local for weeks so its hardly top secret.

Take note GW: make advance orders actually worth while!

Used to be (and I'm talking years ago) that pre-orders arrived a week or two early. I pre-ordered mine with that fond memory in mind. Nowadays, turns out it isn't worth it. If I'd ordered from maelstrom, I'd have saved £5 and got my order a few days later, which considering mine hasn't turned up yet, would have been fine. Won't be pre-ordering again, that's for sure.

LonelyPath
03-11-2010, 01:00
I only pre-ordered this time because my last few arrived a few days before release date, normally I get my pre-orders the following week, say the tuesday or wednesday after release date :(

Why do people associate 'pre/advance-order' with 'getting it really early'? I always thought of pre-ordering a way to get what you want on release day or a couple of days before without having to go to a store, worry about them selling out of things and having to cart it home.


Advance Orders ensure that you receive a new product before it sells out. If you place an Advance Order we will endeavor to get it to you for the day of release, but we cannot guarantee this as postal services around the world vary and are outside of our control. The best way of ensuring that your advance order arrives on the day of release is to place the order at least a week in advance.

Yay! My order is now "dispatched"! Should be getting it tomorrow or Friday. :)

Through experience. Yes, the limit of their guarantee is they will get it to you for release day (postal service allowing), but experience has shown that they usually turn up a few days before. I would never expect them more than a week in advance though.

Born Again has it. Experience has been that pre-orders turn up early (sometimes ridiculously early) so expectations are higher than 'by release date'.

I ordered my book literally as soon as it became available to pre-order (literally, it was 4 minutes past upload time by the time my order was complete). I was half-expecting it last week as every single thing I've pre-ordered from them (bar Tyranid codex because of a printing issue) I've recieved a good week to week-and-a-half in advance.

I've been checking the order every day since last Wednesday, and finally it's been dispatched! Here's hoping they ninja'd it overnight and it'll arrive with the post today...or at least tomorrow delivery.

eldargal
03-11-2010, 11:51
No, but I must admit the sense of entitlement some people display takes my breath away sometimes.:shifty: It isn't like I'm not impatient, I am, I want my codex and kits, but its not even release day yet.


That isn't a really new concept, is it?

Born Again
03-11-2010, 11:57
Agreed. I was hopeful for it in the first half of the week, but knew it wasn't likely. I would expect it on Thursday or Friday. But you don't really have a cause to be annoyed unless it's release day and you're still not holding it.

I hope mine gets at the right adress, I did phone GW like 3 weeks before now to change the shipping adress, but the website still shows the old adress.

Does anyone have experience with changing shipping adress over the phone with GW? Should I be worried with seeing that people are getting their advance orders and I still haven't got mine? I'm getting worried that my dark eldar ended up at the old adress :( Or should I put my faith in that the GW phone troll did his work properly and changed the shipping adress properly?

Post come. Still no codex. I am pissed off. I must be the last pre-orderer not to get the book. What's up with that?! My LGS gets them in today. If I hadn't pre-ordered, I'd be going in to get it, and evidently got it earlier.

Tell me, what was the point?!

sim
04-11-2010, 13:29
Just had a mail from GW saying that "All advance orders for Dark eldar have been shipped"
It also went on to mention that they should reach us by either today or Friday and the orders page may take a few days to update.

I'm regretting my earlier advance order of the codex where I thought "While I'm at it, I'll throw in that webway portal before they're all gone!"
Now It'll probably arrive a few days before the 20th.... damnit.

Got mine wednesday, whoohoo. Lovely minis, just lovely. The idea was to go thinking first, glueing together second. Sadly, I just went for the cool looking options. My sergeant warrior now has an awesome whip which turns out to 20 pts and a gun which is 15. Kinda expensive. Lucky I didn't glue on the tube-backpack, which I was considering. That would've added another 20 pts.

Mine arrived yesterday (04/11/2010) in the UK from preorder, but I could have picked it up last week when I got some figures as I noticed they were already on display in a toy shop not too far from my home town. Didn;t buy the codex though as it was on preorder. I know that the release date was not until Saturday, but they did leave it a little late this time as in the past I've had stuff about a week before the official release date. I almost began to panic!!

Apparently, when I ordered both wave 1.0 and 1.5 models at the same time, it only gets delivered when wave 1.5 arrives (which would be the 20th). Fortunately, the store manager was kind enough to let me pick my Codex and boxes of Warriors and Wyches from stock and take them off my preorder.

If you pre ordered your stuff in my local GW to the store they gave you the items you ordered there and then.

Seems a win/win to me. I get shinys really early and also am able to support the local.
