Am I just not knowing where to look? Or are Iron Warriors and Iron Hands boxes not being sold anymore? (Mail Order only, possibly?)

Thanks in advance

some box sets get phased out to make room for newer stuff

Hmm, the UK still has them then... maybe they're just Mail Order Only for the US? :confused:

Slow sellers get shifted to MO to make room for better moneymakers.

No surprise here, that's just business.

Well, if it's any colsolation, the Richmond Vancouver store had both when I was in a week or so ago.

But they're not big sellers, and are mainly mail order only.

They could just have run out. My local store has been waiting on new boxes of Night Gobbos for a month. Very annoying considering I need 2 boxes to complete my army.

I would say if they are available from one on-line store, then I would think that you might be able to find them on the others. The other thing to do is to go to the above links and record the product code and give a call to your direct services provider and give them the product code and see what they can do for you.

Some boxes are so called "splash releases". Thaat means that they will only be available for a limited time in stores. Such as the Black Templar boxes.

last thing i heard was that the iron hands were still available from stores (and i can get them at my local indipendant) but iron warriors are now mail order only.

i got this information from a redshirt about a year back

A lot of the "custom" marine squad boxes were "splash releases" basically each store gets a bunch of them, and they have a somewhat limited supply in the warehouse, after said 'somewhat limited supply" runs out the stores stop recieving them andcustomers will have ot mail order them specifically...

BTW, the store here in Victoria BC, ran out of those boxes... many many months ago (maybee 6 if not more).

Speaking of which, does anyone know what's being removed to clear the way for all the upcoming Cities of Death and Medusa V releases? I think Steel Legion are being phased out in store to clear the way for the Vostoryans, but all those buildings and the new Deathleaper have to go somewhere...

I honestly doubt the IW squad box was selling badly. It was one of the best chaos boxes around, even if you didn't play IW.
I mean what would you want, a puny mutation sprue better suited to fantasy, or a heap of metal bits awesome for a lot of stuff.

Strangely enough there was only $5 difference. I once made the mistake of buying a standard CSM box and regetted it big time.

At some stage I'll probably see about ordering from the online site.
