Two week window to get orders in. They warn it's like made to order deal so they might have to cast more then they currently have in stock.

And, interestingly, they're not supplying the right base for the HWT.

This is flagging up for me that the Plastic Krieg might well be coming out on their own sooner rather than later then.

And essentially will be the default kit for 'gas mask' guard.

RIP Steel Legion, they did damn fine service over 20 odd years.

F for the last infantry kit you could use as a lethal weapon, by the way.

I believe so, so lumping the last chance to buy in with the pre-orders without mentioning it in last Sunday's article is a bit unusual, maybe?

Huh, followed the above link, tried to switch to US, and it dead ends. Can't find anything Steel Legion in search. Is this only available to certain countries?

I thought they'd appeared as a Made to Order, given they are in the Pre-Order area.

I guess if Death Korps of Krieg are getting more plastic kits GW felt they don't need to sell Steel Legion any more.

The thing that always was intriguing about me, was why did they pick this particular metal kit for sale when they discontinued all other ones. I mean there had to be a very specific reason, yeah?

The moulds lasted longer than the other moulds? Or it simply sold better than Vostroyans, Mordians, Tallarns, etc...

Who knows why GW do anything?

They must've made those moulds out of titanium alloy if they lasted 21 goddamn years.

IIRC the Steel Legion was the newest of the metal kits? Weren’t they made for 3rd, while the rest date back to 2nd?

Yes, they're from 2000, the same edition as the current Cadians and Catachan kits.

The Vostroyans are / were newer than Steel Legion. 2006 I believe.

But yes, most of the metal Imperial Guard were released in 2nd edition.

The Steel Legion were followed by the metal Cadian Command, Sniper and Special Weapon models to supplement the plastic infantry and then by the Vostroyans in 2006.

They definitely outlasted those models though.

They outlasted three of those four models, the metal Cadian Snipers are still on sale.

Sad news. Steel legion were the first 40k kit I ever bought. Made the transition from flames of war easier as they were basically straight up German WW2 paratroopers...

What an embarrassing post

******

It’s always a shame to see anything from the online store being removed, but at least they are giving people a chance to buy them before they are removed. They are guaranteeing availability until the 8th of November.

Armageddon? They had rules in Shadow War and it's a rather iconic conflict.

Well, the squad was sold for 64,90 Deutsche Mark 21 years ago - that's 33,18€. 'Now' it's 30€ - not that bad for two decades.

Its a shame to see it go, but at least they are giving people a chance to get it rather than just silently vanishing it like they did with all the other regiments. Now I need to decide if I should get 1 or 2 more for the road.

They disappeared a little while ago. The Armageddon Steel Legion fb group was all super sad.

They actually are about a few years older than the Cadians (Eye of Terror came out well after Armageddon) but about roughly the same age as the plastic Catachans, give or take 6 months.
