On the preorder page, I see the following:

Quote:
Für die Einführung von TM Feuer & Eis haben wir gleich 2 Sonderaktionen** auf der Messe geplant: Zum einen erhalten alle Käufer 2 Promolandschaften Vulkan und Eis dazu


I don't speak German, but Google does, and it tells me that this translates to:

Quote:
For the introduction of TM Fire & Ice, we have the same two promotions ** at the show planned: First, all buyers will receive 2 Promo landscapes volcano and ice it


From what I understand, the volcano and ice landscape tiles are a standard part of the expansion. What, then, are these promo landscapes exactly? Does anyone know?

No idea. I am German and I have the same question. So it is non language problem.

I've sent an email to Feurland from their web page, asking them about the promo landscapes, but so far no response.

The only thing I have been told is that partners of Feuerland, will most likely get the tiles as well to distribute.

In the case of WGG this might work the same as they did with the promo town tiles: register the game on their website and have them sent home to you free.

I'm mainly just wondering what exactly these tiles are. If they are landscape tiles, how are they different from the ones that I presume are included as part of the expansion?

I got a reply from Dirk Schmitz at Feuerland Spiele on this subject. He said:

Quote:
the scenery is an ice and volcanic landscape, which were specially design. They have no influence on the game and no special function.


So it sounds like the promo landscapes are different art, but don't alter the game play.

On ebay. On the German ebay, I found three sets which sold for 8,80€ (cheapest) to 13,50€. That's about 1/3rd of the total expansion cost. surprise

Don't go the eBay route. Feuerland sells them. The two different tiles for €2,00 and an entire set of 30 tiles for €30,00.

Interesting that they sell these and the promo town tiles from last year in their shop, but not the shipping bonus tile (which they sold for 2€ at the Feuerland booth in Essen).

Although it is just something cosmeticall, I still like the idea.
I wonder if they plan to do it for the other races as well.

Yes,

I wouldn't want these very special looking tiles mixed in with the stock tiles from the base game.

I prefer to use them as the starting locations. Having such tiles for the other races would be perfect.
