I checked on GMT's page that P500 preorders were being shipped starting July 26th.
Has anybody in Europe received it?

I had ordered it with EU-friendly shipping and got a shipping notification from Second Chance Games on Monday.

So I haven't received it yet, but I'm supposed to receive it by the end of the week.

Carlos,
You probably chose the fast shipping option (direct airmail from USA). The alternate, "Euro-friendly" option takes longer to arrive (employs a logistic partner in the UK as a relay point from which shipping to end customer takes place), but avoids the taxes....

Carlos,
Probablemente seleccionaste en el P500 la opción de airmail, que realiza el envío directo desde América. Por eso te han debido cargar de impuestos. La opción "Euro-friendly" es más lenta de envío, pero te evita los impuestos.

Saludos,
Jorge

I picked mine up on Tuesday. DPD had delivered it to a local drop off point. All went without a hitch.

That's not actually correct, the 'Euro Friendly' option adds the VAT up front so you pay it every time instead of taking your chances buying a game from outside of Europe and risking occasionally being charged (I personally have had no games stopped by customs over the past two years).

For the amount of games that get through customs without being stopped and charged for, you will save far more than if you pay the VAT up front on the curiously named 'Euro Friendly' option, at least if you are buying a reasonable amount of games from overseas.

I think you have been exceptionally fortunate. My strike rate was about 1 in 3.

I just received my copy this morning in Madrid, Spain from Second Chance Games in the UK (check their website out, they seem to be the go to place for board based wargames etc, great place to get the GMT games if you missed the P500 etc and they are good in replying when you contact them).

I was very late to the Illusions of Glory P500 (end of July 2017 !) so the shipping out may have been organized in waves with first ordered first shipped out in local region (just a theory only). So what I'm saying is have patience if you haven't received your P500 copy yet.

very happy indeed.
