I guess we new it was coming, but they should really have had the decency to warn a bit in advance.

I recently moved city and have asked around on the two biggest local miniatures gaming clubs sites after epic players. Epic seems rather dead so I was planning to do come introductory games. This makes things rather difficult. It will be hard to get new players into the game now...

Btw I just bought a pack of FW warhounds so they're still available.


THIS!

I am truly disgusted that GW discontinues whole ranges of products and no longer supports these games without a proper prewarning. When I realized they were discontinuing all this I tried to put in a few large orders but several important pieces were out of stock.

So much for respect for their customers. I think a month in advance giving customers a chance to order any missing bits would have been the least they could do.



They didn't even tell their own staff - my local GW chap didn't have a clue and when I told him he started looking on their website - he was actually very annoyed.

The brief feeling of relief I had soon vanished.

I ordered FW Valkyries last week before the rush. My order seemed stuck so I called FW to find out what was happening - I was told there was an error in the stock levels so no Valkyries for me. Not sure what would have happened if I had not called them. They took my money soon enough, but they were in no rush to contact me, despite their promise to call if there are any delays with the order.

I feel very cheated by this, but what can you do.

For those that might have thought they missed out, the Battlebarge has come back into stock. Stuff is slowly vanishing, properly, though(Revenants, Reaver & one of the craftworld Eldar Ships).

Kinda worried about my FW 'Ackknowledged' order though, if I don't phone them, I don't have to get bad news...<fingers crossed>

I changed my mind on a couple of miniatures during (one of) my panic buy(s) and left them in my basket. This morning I got a nice e-mail from GW reminding me. "Be sure to press 'buy' to finish your order so you don't miss out!." This is actually a good feature, but you guys with your unfinished orders make me wish we could send similar letters of our own
"Dear GW: You seem to have forggotten to cast a few items from my order. Be sure to have your management give the 'cast now' order so you don't miss out on my cash!

Have not been following this thread very closely as I wrote off GW/FW a long time ago ... However, saw this on TMP, don't know if someone has already posted this - http://theminiaturespage.com/boards/msg.mv?id=304474 Note my comment on TMP ... And I think these quotes are appropriate ... " It's dead, Jim ! " - Dr. L. "Bones" McCoy ... Image "Indeed ... " - Cdr Spock, Science Officer , USS Enterprise

This also applies to AI aircraft. FW confirmed this.

Had placed my order for some random bits that I wanted but not all of it was posted as they've sold out. Alas, no eldar scorpion and cobra super heavies, and no ork battlefortress. All models I wanted just because I think they look ace.

I did manage to get a load of other bits that I'll need to complete my armies (one day!), such as drop pods, valkaries etc. I just bought one of each pack as they could just well fall into some RTV silicone (by accident of course). ;D

I've never been more sad whilst opening a package from mail order, its not even like anything is poorly cast. FW have said my order with them is fine too they're just busy.

Really glad I ordered these, the Eldar superheavy tanks are just gorgeous.

It's actually alarmed me how many 'your order has been dispatched' emails I've had.

I must have hit the 'panic buy' button more than I realised... :S
