There have been musings that the Hive Tyrant is no longer available on the Games Workshop site. According to what is being said, it is not on the US site, listed as Unavailable on the UK site. Apparently it is still sitting on the AU site.

Regardless of whether it is or not on the sites, the lack of a model being available should not on its own be taken as a reason to believe that there is a release imminent.

I believe that from our rumor sources, March will see Tyranids, April or May will see a Necron wave, and that there is some Space Wolves in the mix.

  1. I will honestly be pissed if I have to wait that long for the Necron second wave.

  2. @Damn The Valley Me too! I need about 12 Night Scythes, and I intend to have them on the day of release.

    1. Tell this to those Nidz players who have eagerly been waiting for almost 2 years to have Mycetic Spores, Tervigons, etc. :) They can feel your pain :)

  3. Man, I'll be so angry if I have to wait until April for the Necron second wave! God forbid that we have to wait a whole 5 months for our second wave when most other armies have to wait a year or more! We need it now!

    1. Note to self: there is at least limited HTML allowed in comments so tags won't show up.

      That whole post was in [sarcasm] tags when I wrote it.


      Now I want to see if there are any other kinds of tags that will be read in with a post...


      Edit: Input tags seem to be not allowed... Too bad...

      Edit2: Nor img tags... So sad...

  5. Interesting, considering that they released it in Finecast after all.

    Storm in a tea-cup?

    1. http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/catalog/productDetail.jsp?catId=cat440179a&prodId=prod1160115a&rootCatGameStyle=

      Check the "Availability: No Longer Available" sign. I was fooled first as the product is listed, but this seems promising.

  7. Well they still have the original daemon prince and the plastic.one.

  8. So I should be grateful that I have to wait 5-6 months for a second wave just because somebody else had to wait a year or more? Nope. I think that it's bad business on GW's part regardless, and the fact that I am missing my transports and walkers for my list in my escalation league annoys me. Special characters I wouldn't care as much about, and I wouldn't go nuts about 1 or 2 units, but come on. And before you bring up Nids, I played them before the new codex, and up until about 2 months ago, so I am bothered by that as well.

    1. I'd rather get a portion of my models first, then the rest a while later than have to wait for ALL the models to be finished.
      That and the fact that six months gives me a while to build up a savings accounts again <.<

      And GW having a terrible business model?
      You must be new here.

    3. I'm Anonymous Feb 13, 2012 02:11 PM

      Well, admittedly I'd love it if the new necron stuff came out sooner, but I'm just saying that I'd rather be thankful that it only took 5-6 months for the stuff to come out rather than several years like some of the SW and nid stuff I've been looking forward to rather than be disappointed that it took a whole 6 months.

      On the other hand, props for being another nid player. I've been collecting them since the 3rd ed book came out. I played them regularly until Necrons came out as well.

    4. @ damn the valley
      i agree with anonymous above.
      stop whining also see my post at the bottom of this thread. the business model is very smart and there is a reason they lead the market!

  9. I really hope they make the hive tyrant available again in some form, I suggest it as the go to hq choice for tyranids, so it sucks not to be able to order it

    ReplyDelete

    1. It's also currently the only nid HQ choice with an actual model.

  10. maybe they removed it due to another lawsuit?

    ReplyDelete
  11. They removed it to make a dual kit, and it's been gone for a while...

    1. So it'll make a Hive Tyrant and what? I've already got 4 games worth of drinks bet on the Tyrvgon, the spawning troop/hq choice, will look like the gobbo spider.

      Delete
    2. Hive Tyrant / Swarmlord perhaps?
      Tervigon would better be suited for a Tervigon / Tyrannofex dual kit.

    3. There was a rumour, last year I think, a rumour which I saw on this site. It said roughly:

      "Plastic Hive Tyrant with parts to make the Storm Lord. Possibly wings, though no proof of that."

      I hope so. >:-))

      Delete
    4. Swarmlord, not Storm Lord! Oops!

      Delete
  12. lol, it's back available again, y'all, i checked every day. Plus i work for GW

  13. Hive Tyrant doesn't seem to exist on the US site at all. I've been checking for a week now. Still nothing.

  14. @damn the valley
    you need to stop whining at GW because you didnt get necrons all at once. for one it is far better they are spread to allow you to take in the new codex. also it is a very smart business model
    they get you excited twice which not only buying the new models ut revisiting that army entirely and thusly buying more stuff in general. there is a reason that are the leading company in this market.
    rant over.
    new models in general = win!
