Citizens of the Old World, Take Heed... 34
Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay available in stores this week
Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay | Published 25 November 2009


We are excited to announce the imminent arrival of the Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay core set at retailers around the world. Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay is your ticket to a world of dark and perilous adventure set in Games Workshop’s enormously popular Warhammer Fantasy setting. Shops in the United States and Canada will start receiving their boxes this week, and hobby stores around the world should begin accepting their first deliveries a few weeks from now.

The Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay core set is the perfect introduction for any new player to this richly textured world, while it offers experienced role-players innovative tools to enhance their storytelling in unprecedented ways.


Everything your group needs is included: multiple rule books, a wealth of player aids, and expansive supplementary background materials will help you bring the denizens, locations and events of the gritty Old World to vibrant life. Read all the details on the Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay product page.

The response so far has been overwhelming! In fact, we’ve already sold out of the first wave of the WFRP core set. New shipments are being prepared and will be sent to distributors starting mid-December.

We would especially like to thank all the players and GM’s who took part in the Emperor’s Decree Pre-release Event. It is your participation and enthusiasm that has made this launch of Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay such a tremendous success.

Be sure to visit your local hobby retailer this weekend to secure your own freshly minted copy, and join in the adventure.

Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay is a roleplaying game that sets unlikely heroes on the road to perilous adventure, in the grim setting of Games Workshop's Warhammer Fantasy world. Players will venture into the dark corners of the Empire, guided by luck and Fate, and challenge the threats that others cannot or will not face.

That's great Acolyte Path! A bit uncalled for, but good for you. 

Glad to see all the excited fans posts in here! You guys have fun. I don't have a group to play this with so make sure you guys have some good ol' RPG fun for me =).

My store has a copy and it's a little intimidating to glance at. Massive box with high price tag, but amazing job FFG showing all the different components and descriptions for how they are used in the fold out cover. Great idea, makes the box seem less scary for curious customers.

Great, but I already own Warhammer Quest.

@stanmons Same thing happened for me - I made a preorder 3 weeks back and was told that it would arrive in Jan 20. And I found out yesterday that if I had ordered it now, it would come before xmas. Emailed the helpdesk about the inconsistency and they upgraded the shipping to Expedited for free. Getting it for xmas now :)

"hobby stores around the world should begin accepting their first deliveries a few weeks from now."

I'll just have to wait a few more weeks then...

Pre-ordered, but it takes some time to get the product to the Northern Wastes...

 I'm still waiting on mine, I'm so excited - so are some of the members of my gaming group.

I changed my delivery option in back and forth and suddenly the delivery date estimate changed to mid-January! I got probably kicked to second wave or something - anyone else?

Infuriated I went to and pre-ordered it with International express courier ($32!) to Finland - should arrive between Dec 3 - Dec 4. Thanks to $ being so low it's only 70€ altogether where as here local retailers are asking 100€  - when they get it (2 -4 weeks).

Is there a list of distributors anywhere?

 I'm waiting my pre-order in amazon, still waiting, still I live, for now :p

So I'm the very lucky one that bought it in pre-order so I will not have to wait until a reprint comes. Can't wait for the day when the messenger with the package comes  and I'm going to open it. Yes the day draws near. :)

Can't wait! That's my Christmas present sorted then :)
