MADNESS...the UK stock seems to be low (sold out or just no deliveries ?)... prices are going up daily especially the discounters like amazon and waterstone   ...i ordered ages ago but no sign of any stock and when i checked the site i placed the order with their list prices had increased 50% (my order still listed at the original price)... this is one of those cases where it's cheaper to import directly from a USA retailer and even after postage be better off.... MADNESS

The point is - the game was finished and sold two and half months ago at GenCon. 

So your comment doesn't make any sense.

I'd rather have a GOOD game than a RUSHED game.

My happiness is somewhat tempered by the fact we've been waiting for release for 2 months after the game itself was finished and first prints were sold at GenCon. Moreover, it will be at least a week more until it's on sale in EU.

At this rate I expect to actually be able to buy the new Warhammer somewhen around next summer.

Thanks for the good work developing and writing the games, now please work on getting them to the customers, too.

It is sad how much hard work gets wasted with people stealing pdf's and using torrents. I'll admit i download them, but usually to look at a book before i buy it, or to have an extra copy of a book i own. I never just download books so i dont have to pay for them, thats messed up. But yeah, im glad Rogue trader is finally out! cant wait to get my copy

 Take your time FFG, it's like we're paying customers and we matter at all...

 Do not make PDFs YET. I stress YET. Wait for more source material FFG. PDFs = Torrents. Sad part is these guys posting here are not the torrenting people. The people pirating will not even visit this site. 

Sorry guys but I watched most of the work I did for White Wolf end up on WoW Wiki thanks to torrents and copy/paste ability of PDFs. 

If the game is going to be pirated at least make the thieves work.

So when will Amazon make it available.  They say they depend on publishers to release.

Freaking finally!!!! And just my two cents, but I agree a PDF version would be most useful! I play online with iTabletop and my group would really appreciate efforts to assist online gaming groups.

Finally! I can leave the judgmental eyes of the Inquisition and board a ship to look for my own riches and power!

I'd like to second Patchworkkid's suggestion for a PDF version. They are just too useful.
