Dying to start a tyranid army. Thought about a genestealer cult led by a patriarch on throne. I thought the model was long oop, but then I saw this:

Looks like it is in the collectors guide.

Does anyone know for sure?

I will buy the collectors guide but my local store has to order it, so it will be a while.

if you want the model why not just ring Mail Order and ask them if they still sell it? you dont need to Collectors Guide to do that... :confused:

I think they are out of production too, but you can find them on ebay im sure.

OT : they should bring that sub-army back IMO. You wouldnt need much new models either. A few metal blisters for the magus and patriarch and a plastic "upgrade" box (like the Black Templars one) to turn normal guardsmen into hybrids ect...and of course you can get genestealer boxes for purestrain. Pretty simple, but I doubt they'll ever do it :(

You can find many things in the collector's guides. Sometimes you are lucky and it is still available via mail order bits service, sometimes not.
The patriarch on throne (and most hybrids except two plus two magus) is not available any more, you have to bid very high on ebay ... or use the new broodlord.

BTW the Tyranid guide is not complete. It does not list most of the old genestealer cult miniatures. Only those available (and the patriarch on throne).

The Patriarch pops up on eBay fairly often. A few of the sellers who specialise in rare and OOP models will often have them, but you will have to pay a pretty penny for them. Same applies with the Magus and the Hybids, although the metal hybrids are the hardest ones to get out of all of them.

AFAIK, there were 2 versions of the Patriarch (1 running, 1 sitting on throne), two versions of the Magus (both standing holding a staff), and about 4 metal hybrids. There were also plastic hybrids available at some stage too...

More like 4 Magi and 8-12 Hybrids (with additional arm options), 3-4 familiars, 2-3 Purebloods. 2 Hybrids, 2 Magi, 1-2 Familiars and the running Patriarch still in the online shop.
