To paraphrase Harry: 8th edition and Storm of Magic - BRING IT ON!
There is rumors of a plastic daemon wave with Plaguebearers and Furies in plastic, and Blue Scribes in Finecast, as well as a few other things, so maybe the Flamer is getting a new plastic kit?
On the daemon front, there are also rumors that all four greater daemons are/will be redone in plastic with parts for their character versions next year.

Badlands was a limited release. Most places by me sold out several months ago.
It sold out in a matter of days around here.
Regarding Blood in the Badlands, it was sold out here in Belgium in a couple of days, same thing for the FLGS in Maastricht, has only been available on the Maelstrom website for a week, and has been marked as sold out on the GW french, belgian and UK websites for more than two months already ... so that one looks more like cleaning the lists than anything else.
About Black Library books : with print-on-demand and eBooks, those get out of production even faster than before, but even ten years ago (when I started collecting them), most of them were "one print run only", and got sold relatively fast (the only exception so far being the Horus Heresy series).
Now, the Flamers ... since they have had a relatively recent FineCa$t re-release, I'm surprised to see those go ... but if the rumours about plastic goodies for Daemons are true, then it could make sense : those are indeed on the "no-brainer, always take the max of those" cookie-cutter lists of IntarTubes Wizdomz ...
Take with a truckload of salt, I say.
blood in badlands is still for in the games workshop in gent still hase copie or 2-3

Sorry, but... theyre right there. The Flamers, I mean.
JustThats it. So, am I missing something here?Availability:
This product is expected to despatch in one to two weeks.
BTW, local indie store still had a box of Flamers. Picked it up as well as something for my eldar, and the new Scorched Brown replacement (Rhinox hide, a bit darker than Scorched brown). I now have 12 Flamers of Tzeeentch for my fantasy army, the most I can field IIRC...
If the flamers get new plastic models that will be the last push I need to start a Daemons army in fantasy. It's the one staple unit I don't really like for Daemons.
Having fun every time is more important than winning every time.

This probably isn't worthy of a separate thread, but the new 40K rulebook has a unit type entry for 'chariot'. Currently, the only chariots in that game are the Daemon chariots (which of course are the same as in FB). Previously, the chariots weren't separate unit types and turing them into a new type might suggest that they are getting a bit of attention and that official models will be out before too long.
