What is a Pre-Order?

New products are available to pre-order on our webstore almost every Friday. Pre-ordering guarantees that you’ll be among the first to get your hands on the hottest new books and miniatures.

Sometimes we will have limited and special editions on sale. These products are usually available in very small quantities and are often exclusive to www.forgeworld.co.uk – in most cases they sell out during the pre-order week!

When will I receive my pre-order?

Preorders are dispatched for delivery on or after the launch date (on Fridays).

As some postal services don't deliver at the weekend, pre-orders will arrive from the Monday after the launch date depending on what delivery method you've chosen at checkout.

My order contains products that are available at different times; when will I receive my order?

If your order contains available products and any or all of the following:

Preorder products,
Made To Order products,
Print On Demand titles,
Products that will be available to ship after 7 days or more of you placing the order,

At checkout, you can choose to have them sent separately as soon as they become available.

All parts of the order will be shipped to the same destination and the shipping charges are based on the total value of every part of the order and the type of delivery you choose at checkout.

During checkout you have the option to mark your order as a gift and include a personal message. All orders marked as gifts will include a special gift invoice that contains your personal message and the order's contents with no price information.

Why are some items restricted?

When shopping with us you may notice that we have placed age and quantity restrictions on some of our products such as Forge World Solution. This is to safeguard our younger customers and comply with various laws and regulations around the world.

When you add any of these items to your shopping cart you will be alerted by a message informing you that the product is age and/or quantity restricted.

For age restricted items by adding the product to your basket and completing your purchase, you confirm that you are of the required age to purchase this product, (i.e. over the age of 16 in some territories, 18 in others).

Some of our products are restricted by the amount you can buy at any one time, so you can only buy 2 of these products in any single order. You also need to buy these items with other non restricted products, such as our great miniatures or pots of paint.

We take our responsibilities as a global retailer very seriously.

What products count towards free delivery?

When calculating whether or not you qualify for free delivery, our system only counts products that will be physically delivered to you - such as miniatures, books and Hobby supplies. Forge World Digital Editions and Virtual Gift Vouchers don’t count towards your free shipping threshold.

How do you handle import duty?

Forge World is not responsible for any charges you may have to pay in taxes or customs duty. Please contact your local customs office to establish what charges you may incur if you order from outside the United Kingdom or the EU.

What does the ‘Email me’ button do?

Whenever one of our products is out of stock we replace the “Add to Cart” button with “Email me” – click it to receive an email alert when the item is back in stock.

What does the ‘Sold Out’ mean?

When you see a product image greyed out with the Sold Out banner across it, that means the product won't be coming back into the webstore. The Add to Cart button is removed and the product's availability changes to ‘no longer available’.

Last Chance to Buy

When a product is leaving the range, and we have enough stock available, we may move it to the Last Chance to Buy section to let you know it will soon be gone. It is not always possible for us to do so. Products that leave the range may sometimes return in future.
These products can be found in the 'Last Chance to Buy' section.

Sometimes products are available to order for a limited period and will be printed for you. They can take longer to dispatch, please see the product page for details. You will receive a dispatch email when the order is sent, so you know it is on the way.
These products can be found in the 'Print on Demand' section.

Made to Order

Sometimes products are available to order for a limited period and will be made for you. They can take longer to dispatch, please see the product page for details. You will receive a dispatch email when the order is sent, so you know it is on the way.
These products can be found in the 'Made to Order' section.

Available While Stocks Last

These products have a limited availability, once they are gone they will not be coming back. Place your order now to make sure you don't miss out.

Special Order Item

These are different from other products, they may be limited or special editions or unique in another way. Please see the product page for more details.
