Our comment section on Faeit 212 is one really to be proud of, not only for myself, but for the readers here that become involved in the discussions. The drama is kept at a very low level, and its been awhile since I have had to delete any serious drama. (from myself included)

This rumor comes from our comment section from Logan, who has been very gracious with us, to share what he discovers on his quest to find out what is in store for us in the near future.

He recently had a conference (yesterday), and nothing really new was uncovered except the fact that GW is upset with the distribution of 6th ediition that occured at the end of last month. I will leave it at that, and let you read the comment left by Logan.

Thanks Logan for sharing what you learn with us. We look forward to whatever you bring our way.

Well hello all. I had my conference earlier today. Nothing really new except that the codex after csm will not hit till 2013. Right now GW is VERY upset at the failure of 6ed distribution. So they will try to get THAT sorted out then chaos them terraim and flyers. There was also NO mention of a fantasy book this year. Take it how it is but thats what I have. Any more details I can gather will be here.

  1. What does "upset with distribution" mean? Sales numbers or?

    1. Probably the fiasco that affected some people who pre-ordered copies for release day only to be told that they had to wait an extra week or so because of dispatch issues etc.

    2. In Aus we didn't get every thing that was up for pre order. I think it was the limited dice n other stuff. Its happened before when IG dropped

    3. Yeah, I know people who pre-ordered stuff directly from the GW page, and then didn't get it for two weeks :/

    4. You still can't get the dice in the UK

      Delete
    5. Not only in the UK... still waiting for them in Germany...

      On the other hand, both the rulebook and the Psychic Power cards arrived at my place with only miniscule delay.

    6. Also, some people (most from Australia as well, I believe) got the book up to a week early.

    7. Im still shocked that no one seemed to read the pre-order page on GWs website for the 6th ed book.

      It literally said, the book will ship on the same day the stores can start selling it!!!

      To me it looked more like GW was trying to tell you to go to a store and buy the book so you could get pulled into buying other things too.

    8. I heard that us aussies missed out on some of the extra bits because customs held onto the packages that said "Munitorium dice" while they sorted out why Games Workshop was importing munitions...

      True or false I don't really care it made me laugh as thats something aussie customs would probably do.

    9. More likely to have been a racket from the qantas baggage handler's those guys are pretty dodge

    10. Any other company would have posted a public apology or something, instead they swept it right under the rug instead of trying to reassure their patrons that what happened will not happen again.

      Yes, they are upset as they lost some serious capital and their relations was strained with their vendors and customers.

      I for one was one of those shorted, I did not get my book until later in the week. I preordered, but I did not prepay (due to the fact work was crazy and it was hard to get to the store that week). Instead I show up that morning money in hand on the big day with my friend to get told, we was shorted in the shipment, only prepaid guys got theirs first..there was no extras. We both paid waiting for the next batch and got ours later that week, still it was very annoying and crappy weekend that I was looking forward to.

    11. My buddy is still waiting for his preordered Rulebook. And it wasn't even a fancy one. Just a plain old rulebook.

  2. Well, with that in mind, that means DA would probably be the first book of 2013..Tau for 2014? :P

  3. I had to order my BRB from the US to afford it. Had I not been able to order it from overseas I simply wouldn't have bought it...

    At a certain point ripping your customers off comes back to bite you in the...

    Especially in the digital age it is very easy for people to get their hands on bootleg/pdf versions of books etc. and if the price isn't justifiable the younger generations won't simply save up for a few weeks (or months at GWS prices) to get the product they want.

    I never bought a 4th Ed BRB and didn't get the 5th Ed BRB for a year or two after release because of the price.

  4. They do care. Sure for your money but tgey are equally excited about this edition and want those who ordered the collecters to feel appreciated. They were not happy.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Also my saying of DA in 2013 was inferred because in the meeting that if they couldnt get that big order of the year perfect other things MIGHT have to be postponed.

      Delete
    2. Did they have any solutions they plan to implement in the future to try and prevent something like that from happening with another release?

      Delete
    3. Or have you said too much and GW's super-secret-squirrel-ninjas are already hunting you down?

      Delete
    4. They just said they were gonna inspect their distribution with more seriousness. And that they will not accept another screw up.

      Delete
    5. So they are going to postpone releases so that they can better figure out how to not have delays in releases. This makes sense.

    6. Dude dont shoot the messanger.....

    7. They need to IMRPROVE it. And this was only a possibility.

  5. Hmmm, any hints as to what the 'terrain' might be? Xenos versions of the standard kits?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That would be cool. Something (anything!) for us neglected xenos would be good. Especially with natfkas sarcastic "2015" release date for Tau looking more and more likely. A flyer and a Tau AA fortification might just shut me up...not likely, but maybe :-)

  6. All in all very interesting news - thanks for sharing them!

    No Codex in 2012 after CSM would surely fit the picture we already had in the rumors... though it's sad if 2012 would pass without an Armybook for the Warriors of Chaos...

  7. This seems to not jive with Matt ward telling people at there open studio day that there will be a major release every month...

    1. A codex or army book need not be a major release. can do other thinhs, right?

  9. Development may be able to pump them out each month but the other parts of gw likes to sit on things for months.

    Also we may not be getting a codex after csm but that doesn't mean no new releases. They've got multiple waves of chaos, supposedly some more White Dwarf fliers, they may even finish the unreleased special characters. Though it's not much to show for six months of work.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I'm fairly sure that gw already could pump things out for around a year or so, even if they weren't making anything new....

  11. My copy of the RB arrived wednesday IIRC. I can understand that they don't want people to have the book before its available to everyone but this happens anyway.
    They should however have the capability to send out their stuff that if you can't get it on release day (which is bad already) you'll get it atleast the following business day.
    Delivering them apparently straight from england to germany is just BS.

    That said I'll not preorder again from GW (unless it would be something I could not get otherwise).

    1. Somehow Apple manages to deliver millions of iPhones on a date certain every year, so it is possible, but obviously GW will never be working on that scale.

  12. It's not just the pre-order distribution that they messed up. My local GW got 80 copies of the 6th ed rules for release day and within two hours of opening they had 10 copies left to last them the week.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I am really glad my collector's edition got to me without any trouble, even though our local GW had distribution issues in spades. Just lucky, I guess.
    If GW didn't make such a big deal out of their secrecy I suspect there'd be far fewer messes like this.

  14. I prepaid for Delivery here in Oz - got it a week late refused to allow the express delivery charges to go ahead...transaction went through and the amount was refunded 2 days after the fact, I'd like to think it was due to good business practice but since I mentioned the Dept. of Fair trade after noticing some reticence - I'd say GW OZ took the path of least resistance. In any case I bought my backup copy first and waited out the Ltd. Ed.
    Thanks Logan for the info.
    Appreciate the Blog, Natfka always worth checking in everyday - Keep up the good work.

  15. Here is the other thing I hope this means: Our FLGS had ordered 6 or 7 Collector's Editions and about 10 Gamer's. All orders were in to his distributor well within the pre-order deadline. Ship date comes along and....the owner got a grand total of ZERO Collector's Editions and THREE Gamer's Editions. And the Gamer's Editions that DID get sent were also delayed a week. And so our poor FLGS owner was left holding the bag.

    I hope they are making sure THAT b.s. NEVER happens again. As one of the people who ordered a Gamer's and did not receive it...if that kind of crap EVER happens again, I am probably done with them. Its not hard to create a "one per customer" system so that you don't get greedy bastards buying 10 to gouge people on ebay with.

    1. Or to stop being so effing SECRETIVE, take pre-orders a couple months before production starts, and make sure you have the product to meet your pre-orders.

  16. I know that I was an individual who had received their pre-order very late as part of the shipping issue. Only to find that when it arrived, I not only had one Ultimate edition, but they accidentally added a second ultimate edition...

    I believe in Karma, so I was on the phone with GW the next day and since sent my accidentally shipped second edition back. The Customer service agent was very hush hush if this was an isolated incident. I can only assume it was not...

    I hope that other instances of this were met with honesty no people feeling that GW owed them in some fashion so this was there penance.

    Although I don't always agree with the actions of GW, they have always taken are of me when it cam to models being flawed (ie, missing turret to a predator, send a whole new model) I was told that I would also be taken care of for this act of honesty, don't know what that means or if anything will come of it, but at least my conscious will be clear knowing that I didn't screw someone who spent a significant amount of money on the ultimate edition and didnt get it.
