Now, I know you work in a technical profession :) Since when does 99.98 equal 100? :)
I know it doesn't, but it seems a bummer to m iss out on it for the sake of 2p.

Fine, fine, RAW i t is then

They will start to go out in about two weeks time - we are watching demand carefully (yeah, it looks like this game is going to be quite popular :)), but place your order this month and we will certainly guarantee it before Christmas, wherever you are in the world, and however great the demand.
Very nice, thanks! My pre-order has already been placed so I'm looking forward to getting my hands not only on the game, but also on these new minis as well. :)

I'm hoping you'll also make available to us Border Boxes with the 2500 range of minis. Demand is certainly there from what I've been able to read. With the current range of minis planned you're already set up for boxes #1-4 (almost like someone planned it that way... :)) with plenty of room to expand with boxes #5-10 in the future.

And I was just looking there, guess I didn't scroll down far enough. I can see where most of my gaming budget will be going for the next few months....

I'm more pleased at the additional 9 squadron boxes. I'm guessing these will be available in stores?

Modification to Finlos question. When can we expect everything to actually hit the distributors and the FLGS? Most of the local gaming is at the FLGS so I tend to purchase via the store.

Is this only available from Mongoose directly? I prefer to support my local mob where I can (I'm in Australia). If not, oh well :cry: I'll get my minis from the Aussie distributor anyway...

Speaking of distributors, I'm wondering about how much of the ACtA:SF material will be picked up by the vendors up here in Canada. (I've had trouble trying to get the ACtA:NA book via my FLGS.)

Are you anywhere near Ottawa? I can recommend at least one good gaming store if you are, possibly two.

edit: took out option 2...

I'm in Toronto; but it's not the FLGS so much as it is (was) the distibutors on this side of the border.

I see the problem now. All FLGS in Ontario can't use the same distributor, can they??

I don't know the full details, but I suppose the more stores which are in a position to carry the game (and which actually want to, for that matter), the better.

I'm not having any issues ordering ACTASF here in Vancouver - however I am special ordering it at a store - not sure if they'll be bringing stock in other than special order.

Likely around the second week of December (depending where you are in the world). However, we know the distributors are going to order light (they always do for a new line), so let your FLGS know you are after the game!

What about europe mainland? Any chance that orders via distributors will be here before january?
(not sure how it is with moongoose products in these regards, but various other companies somehow always ship new products to europe mainland last so asking before I get false hopes up^^)

Depends on when they order. European distributors do not always order every week (some may only order once a month), so they do not always hit release dates with the rest of the world.

Not always the games companies' fault :)
