thats wat u get 4 bein a h8er
Guess what? It wasn't there. Despite pre-ordering (and pre-paying) last weekend on the GW website, despite "it will be ready for pickup on release day", sign of it was there none.
Manager Mark explained that the pre-orders "overwhelmed FedEx" and that was why many of them hadn't arrived on the promised date. He was kind enough to give me a copy of the rulebook today while we wait for the misdirected pre-orders to arrive. I guess it will be sometime next week when they do, which means another 25 minute drive from my house to the store.
In the meantime, at least I have the rules tome to peruse. I suppose this is karmic payback for all my criticism of tabletop wargaming's Evil Empire. But in my defence, I splashed out full retail for the latest 40K product, isn't that worth something? ;-)
