Default Why preordering direct from GW online is good.

I just got my copy of the new guard dex and two valks four days before store release. Now I'm the coolest kid on the block.

Moral of the story, pre-order direct from GW online.

Nah, i'd rather wait and get up to 25% off from online retailers or my FLGS.

Still, it *is* nice to get stuff early and I am totally jealous of thee.

Oh damn! someone beat me to it! * cries a river *

I'm expecting my mail order to arrive tomorrow, and have angiously been looking at my order on the GW page.. this weekend I saw it going from 'being processed' to 'shipped'.. so it should be in the next shipment going to my local GW.. I can't wait to turn up there tomorrow morning and jump up and down excitedly as I get my codex and my cadian command HQ ready to be converted.
( And the sisters superior I ordered, as well as a flamer sister without helmet, which will be the basis for my conversion Vindicare Assassin )

allright Einar,
I am going to want to see that conversion....

When I'm done, I'll make sure to post piccies of my entire army... I've been putting off making those for a while now.
I'm still not entirely sure on how I'm going to paint her though.. I was thinking of making her robe grey instead of read.
( my normal colour scheme is that of Martyred lady )
And I'm still thinking on how I'm going to do her hair.. she's definitely going to have something other than the usual bob-hair that my sisters have.

When I have the flamer girl in, I will have everything I need to build her, so things can be fun.

Your not the only one. I know one of the local groups around me had the Codex and some of the models two weeks ago.

Eyes with out life.
Maggot ridden corpses.
Mountains of skulls.
These are some of my favorite things.

Got mine 8 days early! Love that feeling! And the guys at my local GW even sold me a valk from behind the counter a week early!

They could get sacked for that, so I'd remove it from the post if I were you...
