I'm assuming everyone already knows about this, but just in case someone missed it...

My friends and I did a huge order together...We're all excited to get some (really cheap) reinforcements!

I wonder just how much oversupplied stock there was with during all of these regime changes. FFG still has stuff after all these years. I'm guessing Battlefront never ordered enough and therefore have nothing left to dump.

I wonder if the lack of over-ordering is why Dust wasn't happy with Battlefront?

Yeah, that could possibly be one of the reasons. I personally enjoyed how FFG was releasing units, especially walkers and vehicles that come with multiple options. This gave better value and options to players.

It's too bad (and I mean really bad) that Dust Studios chose not to continue along that route.

They kind of do with the model kit versions. Many of those come with multiple weapon options.

Have you gotten any verification of shipment from them yet? I placed an order on Wednesday and all I got was an order received email. My credit card has had a pending charge since. No shipment notice.

I did see this order is through Asmodeena were as when I usually order it is from FFG.

I've had to wait weeks in previous ffg sales, so this is normal. This time is no different again for me.

I figured as much. Just double checking

No notification yet. They did state that it would take three business days to process the order.

Huh, I posted a thread about this earlier, but the mods took it down and sent me a chastising email: "Please do not promote retail sites in the game forums. If this is a particularly good sale you can post it to Hot Deals (but I think there is already a related thread)."


Anyway, I didn't think I was going to get anything at the sale this year because I'm only collecting Premium units with desert camo at the moment.

But then I realized that some of the Huge Allied Walkers (Long Tom, Skysweeper, & Mobile HQ) are in desert camo even though its called the Cerebus camo.

So, I ordered one of each.

And since the Allied planes' camo is pretty neutral and they can be easily transferred to desert bases, I ordered one of each of those, too.

So, for $125 I got what would have cost me $575 from Dust Games.

Can't really complain about that!

Wow. Dude. You got a good deal on those. You must have bought them early, as most of the premium stuff was sold out when I looked at them.

Good catch!

Anyone get a shipping notice yet?

I placed my order on the 16th, but I haven't seen one.

I received a shipping notice also. Funny thing though is I placed 2 orders. One on the 16th the 2nd on the 26th. My shipping notice is for the order placed on the 26th. Nothing yet on the order placed on the 16th. Both orders were for DUST items only
