View Full Version : Rough date for Advance orders?

I was wondering if anyone knew the rough date that a new army box would be released, if it was advance order. The ones released in advance of a revised book, around 125 etc.

Is it around the 20th of the month before?

Army deals and Spearheads used to hit the shelves two weeks before the main release, but apparently GW doesn't release them anymore.

Just so I know we're talking about the same thing, you mean the 100+ (roughly) army deals like empire, dwarfs etc had before their release?

That's a shame. So the first we'll be able to order anything from a new revision is advance ordering the seperate units 2 weeks before?

Advance orders usually go up for sale 6 weeks before the main release, at which point you can order them but they wont ship till just before the actual release date, meaning you might get them a bit early but not much.

And, yep, sadly the big army boxes are no more, which is a bit of a shame, I was always a bit of a sucker for a big box of stuff!
