This morning I was told that models are now gone on the Australian site, and when I checked, neither the US site or the UK site had any to speak of.


Of course missing models from the GW site don't really mean there is a release imminent, but it could mean something is on the horizon.

Please remember that epic returning is a rumor. I've included some rumors and link below regarding Epic.

Hey mate, just thought I'd let you know that the Oz web store no longer has 
any models listed for epic Armageddon. Up until a day or two ago they had a 
lot still for sale and now everything is gone. This May point to new 
release at the end of year rumour or just be nothing,


Rumors of Epic's Return
Epic will return end of the Year!
http://natfka.blogspot.com/2014/01/epic-to-return.html
 -There will be a Complete Set with Rules, Models and Accessories.
-The "Starter Set" will be a Armageddon Theme Set.
-The set includes Space Marines, Imperial Guard & Orcs
-Expansions for other Armies are Planned like Forces of Chaos, Eldar, Tau Empire or the Tyranids.

  1. It may also have to do with the rumored great metal melt off? Just a thought.

    1. of course when heading to check to see if there is any more missing metal elsewhere, the GW site is down again.

      this is starting to happen a lot.

    2. I know almost all of the Battle Fleet Gothic stuff has been gone for a while now, as well as the Necromunda stuff. I did see some metal Guard models listed when I looked a few days ago. Hopefully the site will be back up soon though so we can see for sure what has happened.

    3. Hmmm, are Obamacare and GW made by the same conniving people?

      Delete
    4. Nah, if Obama ran GW, he'd promise us that you can keep playing your armies in 7th edition, only to find that 90% of the armies in the game have been squatted and replaced by brand new armies made of cheap, poorly detailed plastic for twice the price of the current plastic line.

    5. This really isn't the place to announce your personal political preference. Please can we keep this toy soldier related.

    6. ^+1 plus if we got started on uk politics we would be here for ages....

  2. I hope Epic 40,000 returns. This time with updated models, all in plastic and with all the "Codex" units with some extra. If they made the rules like Dropzone Commander it would be even better.

    I'd love to have large scale battles with massive armies. But I don't want to spend much doing so.

    1. Yeah
      So finaly someone would sue Workshop for a change :D

      Naa! They wont do epic or other Games anymore. Since dreadfleet failed so hard.

    2. Seeing as Epic is older than Drop Zone Commander, don't think thats a case and the IP is different.

    3. You can't really blame someone for writting rules using d6 and small miniatures. :)

  3. So is the "Not 7th" Rulebook perhaps the ruleset for Epic, combining 40k, Escalation, and Stronghold Assault since it would be appropriate to the scale of the battles?

  4. Maybe its just the phaseing out of metal stock?

    2. The rumoured new website? Me hopes so.

  6. I checked Epic on the US site about a little over a week ago after reading a article on 3++ about it to see if There was anything left and it was all ready gone.
    Its a good article if anyone is interested, it got me fired up to play. Heres a link to it.
    http://www.3plusplus.net/2014/01/there-is-another-40k-game-and-it-is-good/
    I really, really hope they bring it back in some form. I remember we used to run Campaigns Using 40k, Epic and later we brought in Battlefleet gothic, they were so much fun. First we'd have fleet engagements and we would use 40k for smaller battles, skirmishes, strike and sabotage missions then we would use Epic for the huge battles for City's and such.

    1. You may like this article too. http://warpartifacts.blogspot.com/2013/11/an-open-letter-to-games-workshop-10.html I did this a while back, but its been one of the more popular subjects mentioned. I am with you, i really hope it makes a return, i just don't know if i trust GW enough to be smart about re-releasing it.

  7. The UK site had next to nothing Epic wise listed for some time.

  8. Again, as long as I am not reading about a sudden flood of C&D letters on the Onslaught Miniatures homepage I am not believing that GW is even thinking about a new version of Epic.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. While i would tend to agree with that sentiment, i think they are unlikely to get given a C&D since they are not using any actual GW terms. A lot of "alternative" sellers get around that problem by making sure not to use the actual trademarks. (Chapterhouse were stupid about it in that regard) Plus, Tau and Sisters of Battle weren't ever made by GW as Epic armies, only FW did them and it was a brief run. Their minis are actually great replacements since those armies were basically impossible to get after FW removed them. I am more skeptical about the overall re-release of Epic than i am about a company getting C & D for that.

      Also, due to the popularity, you would think that BFG or Bloodbowl would take priority if specialist games is to make a come-back as those systems were still relatively popular worldwide.

  9. Site's back up. Sisters are still there. Therefore bs about all metal range being melted down.

    1. If they melted down all the Sistets models, they would have nothing to sell... Is anything of theirs plastic?

      And the meltdown could be being done in stages, anyway...

    2. Ok so why us the entire guard metal range still on the site. Why are goff rockers (god forbid) still on the collectors page and shipping with 24 hours. Nothing has changed on their site in the last month. There are no trucks that left Lenton this morning carrying 'metric tonnes' of metal stock.

  10. I happened to check last week (or the week before, whenever the last rumours about a new Epic release came out) and there were none then.

    They've been running out for years and have probably just decided to write off whatever stocks they had left.

    1. Something happened a few months back and a bunch of stuff disappeared. I never got my modern drop pods in time :( If anyone has some to sell I would be interested - I only need one.

  11. Infact looking at it, Mordenheim and Warmaster both have one model entry each but other than that there is nothing left for ANY of the Specialist Games.

    1. Same for the Finnish site (I assume the Euro sites are all the same except for the pricing, since delivery is from GW UK). As soon as I heard the rumours this morning, I checked - yep, not even the paltry few SG models there had been earlier except for the Elf Mage and Goblin Chariots. Pretty sure even those two models were just an oversight, even though it says "ships within 24 hours" I bet you won't be able to order them anymore.

      Surprisingly enough, Guard and Sisters metals were still there, but wouldn't be the first time GW is slow to update the stock situation.

      However, this was (or should have been) expected as soon as the news of the new webstore hit. Otherwise, GW would have had to build a separate section for SG in there, but now GW can just pretend they never existed.

  12. It was as if a million voices suddenly cried out in terror, and were suddenly silenced. I fear something terrible has happened...

    1. Oh my lord. . .

      It is as if they laid off the entire White Dwarf staff but the layout person and photographer. Somehow they managed to split the magazine into two magazines with even less content than before!

    3. Sooo.... they make a thin WD and charge £4 a week for it, (compared with £6-£7? a month). Then they take the contents of someone's digital camera, throw it into a printer and hawk that at you once a month.

      What? Just, what? I don't understand how they can possibly think this is an improvement in any way shape or form.

  14. Yes!!!! I hope is is BA and steel Legion allies!!!!!!!!! Omg I hope

  15. LOTR SBG has also lost several models, including Cirdan of the grey havens and several cavalry units from Rohan, Eregion, and Khand. All but two models of Merry and Pippin have been removed, and various command sets have been discontinued. Has anyone else noticed this?
