We get asked a lot of questions as to how back orders work and what they are, so we thought we would explain:-
1) The backorder status: means we do not have the item physically with ourselves and will have to order it in. In the case of pre-order items, this means we have sold past out initial order and as such will need to order more in.
2) Backordered Games Workshop items: Games Workshop delivers to ourselves every week usually on a Thursday. What this means is, that every Monday at 12 Noon we place orders for Warhammer 40k, Citadel, Age of Sigmar, and Horus Heresy items that are either on backorder and items to expand our range. Please note if Games Workshop do not have these items in stock we cannot supply these until they become available.
3) All other backorders are ordered as soon as the items in question fall into this status. Unlike Games Workshop delivery times can vary and as such we cannot provide definitive time frames for arrival with us as it various from publisher to publisher as most use distributors.
4) Please note that if an order contains items that are in stock AND items that are on backorder, items will not ship until the backordered stock has arrived.
As soon as said items arrive in store we aim to dispatch them the same day.
Please be aware allocations do occur meaning not all back ordered items are always available.
