On the Italian GW online store, there is a Thorian Inquisitor (http://it.games-workshop.com/storefront/store.it?do=Individual&code=99111399068&orignav=300808), and a las-weapon booster pack (http://it.games-workshop.com/storefront/store.it?do=Individual&code=99061399067&orignav=300808). I was under the impression the Thorian was not released yet, and the Las-weapon booster pack I've never heard of.

Are these just other ones that haven't been taken down by the SG model cut?

Sorry if this has been answered already, but I hadn't seen it anywhere.

the thorian was supposed to be coming out with the brace of specialist game releases planned for about nowish, but nothing seems to have come of this at the moment

The Thorian inquisitor is available from the Italian and German online stores, and possibly the french one as well. The italian store also lists the rumoured lasweapons booster back, but there is no picture for it. What I find really annoying is that in order to 'consolidate their range' as part of their 'improvement to service' about half the =][= range got withdrawn by GW UK, but all those models which disappeared from the UK online store are still available in the US and European online stores, and some of the European online stores have kits (like the Thorian & Bounty hunter) which aren't carried by the UK & US stores at all :wtf: :mad:

He was not actually released over here in the UK Judge. Which is a shame

On the Specialist Games forum Andy said that the release is up to the individual subsidaries. Why the UK has a different approach is strange. Still all MO shipments from german MO are shipped straight out of Lenton. So, they must be already produced and be in stock.

Have fun,

That's the irony. If I order something from the German online store and ask for it to be shipped to the UK, does it simply get sent from Lenton to wherever in the UK or does it get shipped from Lenton to wherever GW Germany keeps its stock, and then re-imported to my chosen location in the UK? In either case it means that GW is producing certain models in the UK which it will sell to foreign countries but not direct to UK customers. The latter is just silly. :eyebrows:

GW Germany has no stock itself. It is all handled from Lenton.

You should prepare to pay a higher shipping cost, though. :rolleyes:

Have fun,

Rolf.

Actually due to the favourable excahnge rate against the Euro it only cost about 2.00 extra the last time it checked, although you do require a credit card. If all stock is handled from Lenton, i.e. orders made by Germans on the GW Germany online store and delivered to addresses in Germany are actually exported direct from Lenton to the delivery address, then does that mean if I order something from the GW Germany online store I have to use a credit card and pay 2.00 more, but it still gets sent from Lenton to whichever address I specify in the UK? That's really crazy!

As to the Bounty Hunter figure not being available on the U.S. Online Store, they do have it listed there: http://store.us.games-workshop.com/storefront/store.us?do=List_Models&code=304552&orignav=300813&ParentID=254391&GameNav=300808

With the "obsolete" models why can't they produce them as made to order models, all be it and shaft us over on the price alot, but we get access to some of the better models like Kal Jerico and Toothpick Murk
