Blood Angels New Kits Incoming?, and Deathstorm Sold Out?


There are quite a few items missing off of the Games Workshop site for Blood Angels. Of course this could very well indicate that we are going to be seeing new releases for these models. However, it could also mean that we are just seeing some rebasing or even repackaging of new kits.


Its also interesting that I had a couple reports that Shield of Baal: Deathstorm had sold out. It looks like it is in the US, but still available in the UK.


Lets take a brief look at some of the things that are missing, and if I missed anything I will add it to the list from the comment section.

There are currently only 18 items on the US GW webstore right now, and Deathcompany is the biggest missing item.


Missing from the Blood Angels section of the GW Webstore
Sanguinary Guard
Deathcompany
Sanguinary Priest

What am I missing here......?



Remember next week we are going to be seeing a new Blood Angels Tactical Squad, Sanguinary Priest, and Codex. Rumors say that a Blood Angel Terminator box will follow soon, along with a special character.

  1. Sanguinary Guard and Deathcompany will most likely get a repacking with 32mm bases.
    The Priest will get a new model

    1. Priest has a new model, images have leaked. It's a sweet model but for 18 quid boy is it expensive. It's also good, but not un convertable.

  2. This is seriously starting to piss me off. My hobby time/planning timeframe spans months and years not weeks. If I happen to miss one week here or there due to other commitments/interests I shouldn't have to miss out on a box set that should be an ongoing item for sale rather than a one off thing. Looks like I will be sticking to repainting my current BA army, make a couple of new models from my current bits box and give GW a miss this Christmas other than an overpriced codex (which will probably be missing half the special characters anyway).

    1. Aside from two special characters you won't miss out on anything though

    2. I wouldn't sweat it to much man. You can still probably call up a local GW store and get one. Although I can see why you're irritated, missing one character won't make your army invalid.

    3. Call up one of your FLGS and ask them to hold a copy for you.

      Likewise, while I feel for you, at some point you do also need to understand that this is how GW is doing it. If you want to not miss any of the limited edition stuff you have to be checking in at once a week, say Thursday night or so. Or of course have other people do it for you.

      Is it frustrating? Sure, I could see it being frustrating. But only if you are treating limited availability items as must have.

    4. It's your own fault for missing out. Budget every month, whether you buy something or not, and the money will be there. It also takes ZERO effort to check around the Web once per week to see what's coming and when.

      Then simply call your FLGS to hold a copy.

      GW isn't required to set this up around your way of doing things. Especially when it isn't even close to how the majority of gamers function.

      Starter sets, like Dark Vengeance, should and will remain available. These campaigns eat up a ton of extra shelf space (on top of an existing starter) and should remain limited.

    6. Crying about missing out on 60% savings because everyone snapped them up. Lol

    7. I was lucky enough to get my copy reserved at the local HobbyTown. The owner is a member of our gaming group and keeps an eye out for us. It's one thing to miss out on a good discount, but missing out on limited edition figures is really annoying.

      I did notice, though, that the product description on GW's webstore says that Captain Karlaen and the Spawn of Cryptus "are currently only available in this set." That word "currently" suggests that the models might show up again in the future. They've already made the molds, which aren't exactly cheap, so there's little reason not to make more in the future.

    8. It is part of a campaign, the books will be available for purchase separately via digital or the softback. The good deal on the models is the only short term element really.

      Delete
    9. Nostok, thank you for clarifying the campaign books are available separately. I wasn't crying about savings or affodability, there's just a lot of other things in life than clicking on a website weekly for updates on an army I've been collecting for years and playing against a long time tyranid player too. Seems like the perfect campaign book for long term playabilty, not some concert tickets for a band who will only be I town one night only?!

    10. ^ this. reason: people will/would buy the campaign box and save atleast $100 [min] instead if they bought the contents [if they collect both armies] separately and save a bundle. i am kinda hoping my FLGS has a copy by time i get paid again but if not it's no big deal [this Xmas i am trying sculpting OOP nid critters so i am busy either way]

    12. after stormclaw got sold out i thought I was lucky to be able to reserve a copy from my FLGS.. turns out, a number of local stores here in our country still have at least 1 stormclaw box sitting for months now.. maybe the same will happen for deathstorm :)

      Delete
    13. Just sayin, there is at least 6 Stormclaw, 3 Space Hulk and 2 Dreadfleet at my LGS, ...

      ... here in France.

    1. Oh how can you be in Germany with that name? Is this some kind of a weird dream?

    2. You're thinking Adolf Hitler....this is clearly Hitler Adolf....the two are obviously not the same. Jk.

  4. We're getting the ebay crowd selling their preorders already. Normally that's a total con but the guy I dealt with sold me the Blood Angels cover mini rule book for £17 including shipping so the bits you want are out there at a reasonable price :) it should land on my doorstep in a couple of weeks.

  5. I'm just waiting until I can buy the two characters on eBay.

  6. Deathstorm is not sold out in the Canadian store

  7. Deathstorm is back on sale in the US and Canada. The wording makes it seem like the characters aren't limited but just pre-release.."a brand new Space Marine Terminator Captain, whilst the Tyranids are led by The Spawn of Cryptus - a brand new Tyranid Broodlord model. Both of these miniatures are currently only available in this set."... Seems like they're inflating demand by making the supply seem limited, then reintroducing it. Is this a new trend in marketing sneakiness by GW?
