This is Decades Late, but Finally it Happened. Forgeworld Steps Up

There is big news today.... its not just about Adeptus Titanicus Prices and Raging Heroes Giveaways. Forgeworld has been the bane of places to buy from for as long as I have been in this hobby. I can't tell you the number of times I have passed on miniatures from Forgeworld simply due to having to pay in British Pounds and slow shipping. I've passed on entire armies and spent my $3-400 elsewhere.

This is awesome, and about time.

The team at Forge World make some truly amazing models – from 
gargantuan monsters and renowned heroes right up to the towering god-machines of the Titan Legions. Until now, though, getting ahold of these miniatures outside of the UK has not always been easy. While the Forge World website has long provided a wide selection of models to choose from – payment options have been limited, and the only currency anything could be paid for in was British Pounds. Added to that, shipping times, especially in North America, were often pretty long – and we understand that that can be frustrating when you’re eager to add that game-winning unit or centrepiece kit to your collection as soon as possible.
Well, good news – this is set to change – with two big improvements coming to Forge World later this August:

Better Payment Options and Faster Shipping.

You’ll soon be able to pay in your local currency, rather than having to use British Pounds.
This is great news for anyone outside the UK, as it means you’ll be able to see far more easily what each item costs without having to run anything through a currency converter. And you won’t get hit with any surprise conversion fees that many banks will charge for shopping abroad. This also means that prices will be consistent instead of fluctuating with exchange rates – so that Primarch will cost you the same one day as the next.

In addition, we’ll be expanding our payment options.
Alongside the existing PayPal, credit and debit card payments – you’ll find new options for Discover in the US and American Express for US and Canadian shoppers, and a new ELV payment choice for customers in Germany and Austria, meaning that you have more options than ever on how to check out.
And we have even bigger news for Forge World fans in the USA and Canada.
As part of these service updates, we’ve been busy expanding our Forge World warehouse facility to the USA – Operation: Sector Munitorum Memphis. Soon, all Forge World orders to the US or Canada will ship out from our warehouse in Memphis, Tennessee.
What this means for you is that we can fulfil your orders much, much faster than ever before. Instead of waiting weeks for transportation of your titanic transatlantic treats – you can expect your order in a matter of days! Decide you need a new unit in your army following a game at your weekly Age of Darkness gaming night? Order it up, and you could have it in your army by the following week!*
With the expansion of our warehouses, we’ve also taken the opportunity to make improvements to all our shipping processes. So wherever you are in the world, your Forge World orders will soon be shipping out to you faster than ever – with many orders on their way to you within a matter of hours!

All of these updates will be happening later this month.
