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.


Exactly, heck the pre-orders are only a week typically so all the overseas store and online stock is already shipped and at the local GW warehouse even if its not sent out yet, it will likely be bagged and setup ready to be shipped out. So something selling out super fast online might mean GW tweaks the shipments, but would mean they'd have to tip into stock and opening it up and repack it all again.

Another reason I think we see some stuff come in and out of stock is that people panic and they order 3 copies from the same store or they order from several stores at once. Then once the hype has settled they cancel the ones they don't actually need.

I've wonder for a while if, after the success of Necromunda, GW would try doing 1 sprue sets for several IG regiments. These days it's pretty possible to do a set of 10 guys with lasguns, special weapons, officer and kneeling options, then add a separate sprue of heavy weapons.

Only time will tell of course, but it seems the best way to undercut all the 3rd party options. By going with their established IP GW could get fans to pay a premium for Tanith, Krieg etc and shun various sci fi army sets out there.

GW could certainly do what they've done with Warcry for the Imperial Guard. All they'd need is core infantry, a command squad (part of core infantry), a heavy weapons team and then some upgrade parts for tanks (eg tank commander etc...).


Most of the specialists and hardware are going to be generic for IG so having unique infantry would fit really well. GW could then add one or two boxes to really popular ones with some specialist models -eg Tanith could get a box of sniper scouts

I'd go bankrupt if they released a Tanith First And Only box especially if it had options for Tanith, Verghast, and Belladon, especially when it comes to the various pieces of gear and head options.

And then I'd declare bankruptcy a second time if there was a Blood Pact or Sons of Sek kit.

In my opinion any guard revamp or release needs to include a new Leman Russ. The current one looks like a dang Tonka Truck with terrible proportions and a height profile that is quite laughable. On the table, even from far away they're without question for me the worst looking vehicle in the entire game.

I don't see GW updating Leman Russ given that basic LR and Demolisher were recut in the previous wave. What we do need is a Basilisk & Griffon dual kit. It needs exactly one large sprue given that Chimera hull is already updated and used by Hellhound, Manticore and Hydra/Wywern.

That place is the harsh dark future far left with only war left.

Part of the charm of the Leman Russ is its height. It's not a modern sleek tank; its something out of a warped WW1-2 era

That's fine. It still looks like a kids Tonka toy instead of a main battle tank. Personally, I'd like to see guard get Primaris'd. The look of the Solar Aux from FW would be a great new guard line, instead of having lots of little regiments. Just have one standard one.

Looks like it's time to dust off my old Gaunt's Ghost Company.



At Games Workshop, we believe that how you behave does matter. We believe this so strongly that we have written it down in the Games Workshop Book. There is a section in the book where we talk about the values we expect all staff to demonstrate in their working lives. These values are Lawyers, Guns and Money.

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.

The way GWs been operating lately, it’s more likely we get a new tank pattern for guard. Or, maybe with plastic Krieg comes plastic Malcador?

Yeah. What I'm saying is the physical model looks fat, thicc and like a kids toy and less like a model depicting a proper tank.

This is what I'd like to see in terms of vehicles:

Updated Kits:

- Basilisk/Medusa/Griffon/Colossus:
Going back to 5th edition with the Chimera Colossus variant, just rename the FW one back to Imperial Bombard like it use to be called. Just put all 4 artillery SPG options into the one kit like the current Leman Russ.

- Leman Russ Battle Tank (Battle Tank/Eradicator/Vanquisher):
- Leman Russ Cruiser Tank (Annihilator/Conqueror/Exterminator):
- Leman Russ Siege Tank (Demolisher/Executioner/Punisher):
Honestly, combining all the old FW legend variants and splitting the Leman Russ into 3 kits is the perfect opportunity to also do an update to the design.

- Valkyrie/Vendetta/Vulture:
Lets put them all into one kit as well.

Versteckt in den Schatten deines Geistes.

The Basilisk is the kit that needs he update the most because it's still using the same Earthshaker Cannon sprues that came in the original box from '95/'96. Not only that, because of the way they recut the Chimera, the hull Heavy Bolter is no longer present in that kit. This means that GW has to keep producing the old Guard vehicle accessory sprue as that at least has a hull Heavy Flamer on it.

This could, in turn, lead to the default weaponry on the Basilisk becoming a Heavy Flamer thanks to GW's no model/no rule. Due to legacy concerns I doubt that would actually happen, but it could become the standard rather than the current default loadout.

So a new Basilisk - keep using this base Chimera chassis frame, of course - with an updated second sprue that contains the top artillery housing plus optional gun types (great place to include the Medusa and reintroduce the Griffon) and the necessary hull Heavy Bolter mount (and HF) would be the best idea.

I don't see them updating the Russ again, certainly not to change its style. Why would they want to change its style?

Just make it look more like the better proportioned FW version.

The Taurox says hi.

Even converted with wheels it's just an absurd looking vehicle.
