i see that the DOW preorder is 70 euros, which clocks in at just under 50 pounds. Does anyone know if thats the same as other stores? also it says it ships 30/11, is that before or after it hits high streets?

The main advantage of the DOW preorder is the promo figures.

Specifically of BattleLore, no.

But a pretty good rule of thumb used to be that if it costs $X in the US, it'll cost £X in the UK. Although with the dollar sliding, that may be over-optimistic.

Shorter: Too much.

I would guess around about £50 - that would put it on a par with the Fantasy Flight big box games that come packed with miniatures.

UK price will be the highest in the whole world, as usual.

Hi guys...

If you venture over to ThoughtHammer they are selling it at 30% off for the Pre-Orders ($49 US - down from $70 US).

http://thoughthammer.com/product_info.php?products_id=2601

However, I do believe you forego the Hill Giant promo piece if you order from a webstore. You have to buy it from brick and mortar or from DoW directly to receive the promo.

Thanks,
Shane

oh yeah...ThoughtHammer.com says the following:
Publisher's estimated release date: December 2006.

Pre-orders from online retailers gets you just the game.

Pre-order in a B&M store or with DOW online in North America and you get the game and the Hill Giant.

Pre-order in a B&M store or with DOW online in Europe and you get the game and the Hill Giant and the Earth Elemental.

This is what it seems to be so far anyway.

NA peeps should be able to get the Earth Elemental at conventions or demos or apparently we should also be able to easily aquire it some other way they haven't told us about yet. I'm betting they'll sell it on the DOW site too or something

Do you guys think the promo mini is worth paying the full $70 US or would it be better to simply pay the $49 US? I'm a little on the fence about it simply because I know I will likely miss out on the Earth Elemental anyway.

Thanks,
Shane

That's generally true, although things seem to have started getting slightly better here lately.

Kind of annoying - because if the ships from China just swung by here on the way to the U.S. we'd probably have about the cheapest games in the world.

I think the kiwis are probably still worse off than both of us.

Even more annoying - I've not yet seen any indication that we will be getting the Hill Giant figure however we order it.

on the DOW site is says that we will recieve both the promo figures if you preorder in Europe..which is why i probably will order from them. the only thing stopping me is i want this on day of release, but as i daid they are sending out at the end of nov so that starts to hit xmas post. (if there is a problem)
