    Unhappy What's gone today?

    I started this thread just to keep track of missing metal (and Finecast) products for 40k and Fantasy (before they delete the product pages). Feel free to contribute.

    Re: What's gone today?

    Will you catalog things that were unavailable before today? Ie. Seraphim Superior et al?

    I'm surprised to see so many additional metals missing so quickly after the original wave of NLAs with the specialist range.

    BTW, if they take away a product too quickly and you ever forget which one it was, you can always cross reference with the Australian site. Given their prices, they haven't sold out of much. Even in the SG category.

    Same with the USA, to a lesser extent. Though that's probably attributable to the layout of game stores here, and the presence of competing companies.

    edit: I'm still not sure what is more dooming for GW: That products are being removed from the UK site at an alarming rate, or that products are NOT being removed from the North American and Australian sites, despite the inevitable and apparently proximate conclusion that they will be.

    Regarding Australia: they have their own missing sites, like the Sartosa captain and the Scavvie gang.

    Well, I don't think I have the time (and passion) for a catalogue, so help would be appreciated. Browsing GW UK, US and Australia is a bit time-consuming. But models missing in one area are a good indicator for the others.

    The UK is the home of GW, it has a LEGION of older gamer fans who grew up steeped in all things GW, so the demand here will be hotter and stronger than anywhere else in the world.
    There has been GW stores in the major cities of the UK for 25 years, thats a generation of GW growth and development.
    In parts of London there have been GW stores in the local suburbs for 25 years. The brand has a deep reaching grasp on the older gaming community.
    The borough of Hammersmith and Fulham has had a local store since around 1983.
    Back in the day White dwarf magazine used to advertise all kinds of different gaming companies products.

    Re: What's gone today?

    It's such a shame that these products are going, especially with this thread chronicling their demise piece by piece.


    As such, I'd like to get one cheap and immature laugh in by pointing you to this (http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/ca...Id=prod1130433) Valhallan Officer's questionable chainsword (My apologies to anyone who takes offense, but it's been a constant source of laughs to my gaming group, so I thought I'd share it, before it was cast unto the warp)

    EDIT: I may have misunderstood this post, because I can still see the Mordian missile team
    Bitter.

    Out of all the changes to 40k over the years, the one that irks me most, not fliers, not Grey Knights or the new Necron fluff, it's my Kroot being worthless in CC.

    If anyone has the 4/5th edition Chaos Raptors please PM me.

    Re: What's gone today?

    Yeah they're starting to go from the UK site as well now (at least for me, some people may be different)
    I sure hope they don't get rid of the steel legion range, considering all they need is a plastic basic infantry kit and you've got a new product line.

    I honestly cannot tell why they're getting rid of the Mordians, Steel Legion, Tallarns and Valhallans when Catachans and Vostroyans are still in major production (Don't get me wrong, I don't want those gone to, it's just that I've never seen anyone with a Catachan army and the Vostroyans are the Sisters of battle of the imperial guard)

    The other shame is the loss of historical minis, like the Gaunts Ghosts set, The Chancers, Old Nork and Lord Solar (and the Mordian with the Ork head)

    What is going to happen to Chekov? Considering he's in both the collectors section and the Troops section of the Imperial Guard
    Bitter.

    Re: What's gone today?

    I'm going to be quite upset if the Vostroyans are taken away.
    The one army that, arguably, has the largest variety of troops because of the background will soon have just the Cadians and Catachans. That is quite sad.
    Glad I got the Gaunt's Ghosts box two weeks ago.

    Whilst marine codex XBii/Cvi is released, the only difference between them and the other hundreds of loyalist marines being their paintjob.

    Today we have lost:

    Bloodbowl
    Amazon team
    Chaos Dwarf team
    Goblin team
    Human Team (which I have for sale if anyone missed out, shameless plug)
    Norse rampagers team


    Battlefleet Gothic
    Ork super battleship
    Chaos Planet killer
    Tau explorer starship
    Tau orbitals
    Tyranid Leviathan Hiveship (which I think is an ugly model anyway)

    Necromunda
    Scavvy zombies

    Mordheim
    Centigor
    Plague cart
    Hunter
    Reiklander captain on foot and mounted
    Possessed warband

    Inquisitor
    Inquisitor Slick' Devlan

    Can't be bothered to do Epic or Warmaster, but at least Nagash is still there in collectors so all is well!

    Yes, I don't know how often they're updating the website to take out the links?

    I thought most things were staying on for 2 days tops when NLA then disappearing?

    Re: What's gone today?

    There is a handful of LotR minis that was removed from sale in the UK.

    Sharkey and Worm: Finecast.
    A blister of three Archers (can't remember what they were called - sorry!) from the "kingdoms of men" line: Metal.

    They went missing around the same time as the sister superior.

    Well, I started this thread for 40k/Fantasy, so SG/LotR is not in the lists.
