They showed 6/19 for awhile on Saturday, then it went to October, and now it's back to 6/19...interesting.

Wonder if that means that the forges have worked overtime?

I remember when those same Cadian models were £12 for 20.

If the price had risen in-line with inflation, they'd be £20 for 20 today.

Not that it changes much but they were £15 when they were released (I found the White Dwarf from when they were released when the new price was announced to check what they were when they came out 18 years ago).

And by 'Forges', I assume you mean the decision to send even less to FLGS and use that product for the online store customers who have already coughed up the money.

Do you have literally any evidence of this happening?

Mondays are when preorders made via GW's in store terminals that are not paid for by Sunday get cancelled.

If they are around later in the year I'll get some, but six once again feels a waste of time, like the metal ones.

Should have released this with a squad box.

From what has been said, this Vincula Insurgency Dossier was "Part I"...I would be shocked if there is not more to come, dependent upon these doing well.

Anyways, these are supposed to be a range item going forward.

This would be dangerous to my wallet. Always liked the Tanith stories, if more of the cast get figures as well as an eventual troops box, well damn, it'd be a new army for sure.

We can always hope since we're seeing a cadian upgrade that the wince-worthy catachans are getting replaced with something that would be reasonably compatible with the ghosts... Fully recognizing this is giving GW the benefit of the doubt, but they also have been updating non-marine core units this edition (orks, necrons, again previewed cadians, sisters in the not so distant past, maybe forgetting some).

Or yeah maybe it's just dumb.

For all the folks who are hesitant to order online due to the delay, I stopped by the nearest 40k store we had after running some errands and they had a couple boxes in stock.

I don't play Guard but I love the Tanith stories so I picked up a set to paint after we move.

Somewhat related news, pour one out for one of the last good buys for IG players. Listed as no longer available, just as the regular Cadians get a nice new sprue and a not so nice new price tag.

The $10 simple build Cadians weren't great, but then again neither are the normal Cadians.

Games Workshop are not your friends. They are not a small dev trying their best. They are a multibillion dollar company making calculated decisions about how many costs they can cut, how lazy they can be about relases, and how much they can paywall. They will do it again. Stop giving them money for this.

A light infantry/ optional camo cloak and silver knife would be kind of cool. Could probably merge enough heavy and command parts onto the sprue to make it a single kit with modern layout.

If they want to make another special unit though, I would love to see a similar box with Cain and the 597th. Cain, Jurgen, Kasteen, Broklaw, Sulla, and Jinxie Penlan.

I'd rather see Minka and some of the Cadians/"Cadian expats" out of Cadia Stands or Cadian Honour than another Commissar-centric bit.

Too bad they didn't include bits on the upgrade sprue to make minka or lt mina from Space Marine. And a plus to a Cain set is that it would be a command squad of valhallans.

Cains crew has been done by other companies and likely better than GW would do......

I have older version of Gaunts and happy with them - if they do some of the later recruits might be interested......

Does anyone know what the price difference is between the old and new box?


Depends on which set. The first set was around $39.00 back in the day. Set included the essentials, Gaunt, Larkin, Milo, Dorden, Corbec, and a trooper.

Second Set had blisters with special weapons, and basic Tanith troops. (One even had a woman in there, if you can believe that. They were around 10-15.00, IIRC.) They gave you enough different sculpts to do a halfway passable Tanith Platoon/ company of 3 platoons.

The box was like one of the half boxes, and it was around 3d ed timeframe.

Ive seen a few halfway passable "Try Again Braggs, but I don't recall them coming from GW. Most of the time people just used Ox, or made one up from a 3d party company.

Brother Vinnie did some pretty good ones, as well, now that I think about it. and Vic's got a great batch of stand ins that are comparable.

I think he meant the Cadian box.

I can't recall what the one before the upgrade sprue was, but I know that on release they were AUD$50 for 20 Cadians, and are now AUD$77 for 10.

I think I read that GW divides stock between FLGS, GW shops and online so just because something is sold out online it might still be available for shops to order.
