Last week some models have either gone missing, or are seriously delayed. A couple in fact show that to get them in the US is a 4 to 5 week delivery online. Could this be that a new model is being done? Perhaps upgrading to the new hull like the Chimera? Its hard to say exactly, whether or not inventory is just low, or its something else.


Please remember that just because a model is not immediately available does not mean a new model is about to take its place. However it is worth notice. Below are a bunch of comments regarding the Basilisk and other models.

On monday (of last week), the Basilisk kit was pulled from trade sales. (Also some dwarves. I can't be bothered posting two threads, so someone else can go put that in fantasy.)

This is most likely because the other "chimera chassis" tanks will be joining it in its kit.

Wierdly, the Catachans also vanished. I think that might be due to poor sales though.

Several german Hobby bunkers are no longer supplied with catachan versions of the IG kits (goes for the command squad aswell) a friend of mine told me. might be due to shelf space reduction.

I can see the Catachan infantry squad on their website right now? Am I missing something?
On the US Site it is 4 to 5 weeks for delivery. Cadians ship within 24 hours. Might mean a re-cut hopefully.

Also the Basilisk is 5 to 6 weeks for shipping.

  1. I don't know if that's a problem of shops,but in GW web you can see and buy Basilisk and Catachans normally.

  2. Might be a problem with the shipments. GW Europe site has all plastic Catachans and the Basilisk still available as "ships in 24 hours".

    Considering that the Hydra and three out of four arty vehicles in the IG codex are still FW-only and the Basilisk kit is old as nails, it's no doubt up for replacement with a multi-kit sooner rather than later, but I'd guess the release of one would be timed to coincide with the codex release sometime in 2014 (along with "Iron Cloak Veterans" and whatnot, maybe even the Plastic Greatcoats that have been rumoured for 10+ years now).

  4. I noticed there were certain Elder sets no longer available on UK GW site including warlocks with 2 handed weapons and the Seer Council. Not sure how long they've been unavailable for.

  6. There is a difference between no longer available and 5-6 for delivery. They need to reorder- that is all.

    1. But, last I've seen, it STILL doesn't come with a hull-mounted heavy bolter, only the heaqvy flamer. Could be better now, though.
