Same here. But...no tracking number yet. I wonder if that means that they boxed and addressed them, but have yet to give them to the courier.

The GW site did say that they weren't posting anything until Friday.

Perhaps it's not so much what he said, as how he said it. Mechanized Kraken indeed. :)

You people that live inland have no clue about what sea water does to motors and electronics. That mechanized Kraken won't go the distance.

Yes, yes, yes, salt water and eletrolytic behavior.
Pity Warhammer doesn't have electronics, and so the Kraken is almost surely steam-powered. Probably with a Warpstone boiler given that they are Chaos dwarves.

It won't break down as much as randomly explode in a cloud of glowing fog fog. (That is a more curious question. WFRP old Warpstone was always green and glowing, but 2nd edition had it as black/grey stone that emits "blackness".

Me neither.

Also, can I just say Games Workshop have the most absurdly un-user friendly e-store I've come across from a major retailer in some considerable time. I just had to talk a relative through it - absolute rubbish. Why hide the checkout button? Why so many steps, so many different pages? Why require registration and a confirmation email? It seems as through their web design people had never heard of, or used, Amazon.

It's available at Coolstuff Thoughthammer, on preorder, for 103$. That's what was fucked up.

I want a 10% rebate for being so fucking balls out, thoughthammer's got nothing on me.... actually on you NeonPeon. Those are some serious investigatory skills.

I must be missing something here...Why exactly is it fucked up that Thoughthammer's selling it? I would think a small discount would be a good thing.

What's fucked up is that GW didn't indicate that anyone would have it but them, so the suckers like me who went balls deep, sight unseen, could've saved money had we NOT enthusiastically supported them by ordering direct.

Pete. It isn't THAT bad.

It isn't like GW is selling to discounting retailers who are receiving shipments over the next few days and immediately selling them to customers so that those of us who ordered it direct from GW have to pay more AND end up getting it later.

And it isn't like GW witheld the option of nipping over to the new GW Atlanta store which opens on October 1st, so I could just pick it up there on Saturday.

The bits still look pretty. I did forget how much GW sucks, though. Go Mantic!
