So I've had a dozen Drukhari items on notify when back in stock since AUGUST. None have come back. In fact the US selection is only ever shrinking, nothing comes back ever. I recently got a copy pasta answer from the FB community page essentially confirming the US isn't a priority and probably will never get stock again.

Is there some entrepreneurial minded Brit out there who wants to run an export service? Because the UK site gets 5x daily restocks.

Have you tried ordering from UK based gaming stores and asking if they ship to the US?

It's faster to list the models that are available:

New Start Collecting
Ravager
Raider
Razorwing Jetfighter
Old Start Collecting
Wyches
Succubus
Archon
Lelith
Lhamaean

Not a single thing from the Coven range.

Huh. That explains a bit of an odd situation I had. Ordered a Clawed Fiend last July to be shipped in to my FLGS (League discounts for the win) and promptly forgot about it. It didn't arrive till last month.

Ebay, I've found, is a good place to start for picking up models, and third party sellers (even big name brands like Walmart) often carry official kits online (at least the Start Collecting sets).

Chinacast assembled painted wracks are averaging $160 for 5 on ebay... that's the only way to buy them in the US.

i think they got swamped with demand. i just bought a whole wave of this stuff a few weeks ago (new start collecting, old start collecting, ravager, succubus) and am still waiting on my scourges (been almost 3 weeks now)

try looking at stores in canada, the shipping might end up being cheaper than from uk.

I’m in Canada and it’s 100% the same here. I was able to get a few talos and scourges but absolutely zero luck with wracks

Scourges came back into stock for like 20 minutes, and were gone again. I regret not buying three-four Talos engines when they were still available (first week or so of codex release people were crap on Coven). They did restock Ravagers, though.

Wracks are (or were, I haven't checked in a week or two) unavailable in the UK too.

Yep definitely UK, and definitely not available via the web store. They don't show as out of stock until you click on them or try to add to basket. They might be available again via 3rd party stockists or store shelves, but not the webstore.

I ordered a unit of wracks at the same time as pre-ordering the codex through my FLGS (UK) and didn't get them until this week.

Ravagers and Sslyth(though they sold out quickly) were both recently restocked in the US, I ordered both as soon as I received their restock e-mails.

They're slowly restocking in bits and pieces, they're just mostly selling out same day.

A GW US customer service rep told me some DE items are in the process of having their packaging updated, is all.

All it'd take to explain the current stock situation is that the order for the new packages got delayed.

Let's assume GW intended to release the new packages in conjunction with the codex. Makes sense, right? They would naturally stop placing restock orders with their manufacturer for the old packages.

If the new packaging was delayed (maybe a plant issue, or the order had to be deprioritized in favor of some other problematic order, or old-fashioned bad planning), then suddenly the timing of the codex release couldn't be more inconvenient, at least from a logistical perspective: their supply chain hiccups precisely when the codex generates a huge spike in DE demand.

Has been a pain trying to find wracks down here in NZ, seems like GW have made a huge chunk of DE models direct order only now so all third parties no longer stock them. Will just be keeping an eye out for a restock email.
