View Full Version : Maybe I'm late to the party, but has anyone noticed that GW still sells these?

Necron Scarabs (http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/catalog/productDetail.jsp?catId=cat380012&prodId=99060110003), packaged with large basses too!

I thought these were discontinued years ago.

Well thats...I was going to say new, but they models are old so...not sure what to call it. I remember those things from years ago when I first started to play, I also thought they stoped making them when they came out with the new ones, and I swear I saw the new ones on the fast attack page a few weeks ago. Intresting find, wonder what that means, if anything.

It means you can pay more for what you already get in a warrior squad - only they're metal.

Good if you already have old-school necrons - but then you also run the risk of GW numptys not being old enough to know they are GW models.

I'm in the process of collecting an army of the old models. I know, I'm weird, but I just like the older metals a lot. So getting some of them directly (and not via Ebay or worse...) is a good thing. :)

They also sell the old Necron Lord (http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/catalog/productDetail.jsp?catId=cat1491460&prodId=prod1130422) again.

They were discontinued when the new range came out. They were then re-introduced as "classic" models. Several armies have equivalents. Look on the GW site under Warhammer 40,000 Collectors. WHFB has some too....
