Shipping times to UK? 3 Years, 7 Months ago  
Yesterday I finally snapped and ordered my first set of Dwarven Forge products. Man, I can't wait. Just wondering if anyone has experience ordering to the UK (USPS priority international)?

How long does it normally take from ordering to having the sweet, sweet, Dwarven Forge in your hands?

I'm so impatient, I don't know if it would help to know anyway... but it may help me take my mind off it...

The last couple of orders I have received have taken roughly about 3 weeks. You can track them via the USPS website (they will give you a shipping code once sent off) then by the Parcelforce site when they are in the UK.
Once through customs Parcelforce will send you a little note telling you to pay customs charges then they are all yours.

They are well worth the wait and extra expense shipping, enjoy.

Welcome to the addiction hudcrab!
Rest assured, no matter how long it might take to reach you, I am VERY certain that you will love the product through and through. Dwarven Forge combines a really durable material with beautifully and high-quality painted pieces. What's more is they have a nice customer service, too.
Whatever time it will take for the sets to reach you, I am sure your posts here afterwards will sound positive.
Which sets did you order and how many? Please be sure to post your set-ups here as soon as possible, since I for my part, am always looking for new inspiration.

Thanks,
Dwarf

Yes, welcome to the addiction indeed!

Thanks, Pusherman, that's good to know. I had forgotten about customs, that's annoying, but - oh well.

Haha, well it's always promising to see rabid brand advocacy - yes, dwarf, I am sure that once I have them in my hands I'll be very happy and quite yup for taking and sharing photos!

As for the sets I ordered; I'd have liked start with caverns but, since cavern passages were out of stock, I went for the more versatile traditinonal dungeon sets. I ordered:
2x room and passage sets
1x room set
1x narrow passage set
1x wicked additions #3
and a few of the individual pieces that looked like they'd be useful

Part of me thinks I should have got a medeival building set but I don't think I'd be able to fit it in, given the shipping weight limit...

You have a good selection of sets there, the Room & Passage sets are great value. I'm sure as soon as you get your hands on your sets you will be wanting more.. like they say it is an addiction. The Cavern sets are amazing.

What game system are you going to use them for?

So, it's currently awaiting customs clearance and has been for 2 days... How long does this normally take? My concern is that my office's courier room is very good but our post room is rubbish (they often just dump letters on a desk on the wrong floor, expecting them to be found) so I might not get my customs charges notice if there are any...

What kind of customs charges should I be expecting here? 4% for 'Toys' or is it much more than that?
