Anyone heard anything about >50% of our range being out of stock online? Even the online only stuff? Hell, reavers were mentioned in the faction focus and they have been out of stock for ages.

Is this a covid thing, or something else? Im not even hoping for a new range, but I do have a sinking feeling many models might be retired. Wouldnt be the first time we have had even base units without accompanying official models.

Ya, kinda glad that Reavers were out of stock. I would be the proud owner of 15 useless Reavers otherwise XD.

As for your actual question, I have no clue. They 100% will not discontinue the line (without also removing the rules). The Chapterhouse court ruling is still in everyones mind regarding rules without models

You joke, but, the cost of Reavers on the secondary market has exploded.

I mean, literally all the coven stuff is also out of stock. Which seems like a far bigger issue for people.

I'm surprised by all of this. It isn't like we got anything good recently. Maybe just 9th ed mania in general?

Probably just low stock levels in general combined with some people picking up new toys for the start of the edition. I wouldn't read too much into it.

Lots of companies struggle to get stuff from their suppliers because of Covid. Especially if those suppliers are international. I am willing to bet everything is produced, but GW just get lots of delays with receiving their goods. This will pass, and suddenly everything will be back in stock.

Yeah, personal and possibly irrelevant anecdote about the above. Sent a package to my British friend a bit ago, and it took about two months to make it through U.S. customs. Commercial suppliers might be having similar issues.

Talked to my local GW store.

It is COVID related. It is about what they have in stock in their US warehouse for orders on line as they haven't been able to work on production and restocking for a while yet over seas.

It will rectify itself over time.

It's the same in the UK online store too (so no overseas shipping) but I imagine it is COVID plus the Indomitus release and also a focus on what they think will be popular in sales to get out in the coming months. I'd say SM + Necrons seem like a reasonable line of miniatures to focus production on for the starter sets and the codexes coming in Oct.

Other armies had there boxes pulled like Marines as they had stat upgrades and weapon rules upgrades for the new codex
Probably similar happening to drukhari with re packaging

stuffs are coming in and out of the GW site pretty fast.
Last week i've been able to purchase 2 mandrake units.....they were out of stock for months, so i jumped on them as soon as i've seen them.
I live in Canada and received them in like 3 business days (don't know if they were actually shipped from UK or if there is a warehouse here in Canada.....)....i was pretty impressed!
Also Urien was out of stock for months too, they we're back in stock at the same time as the Mandrakes but like 2 days after they were already back in the out of stock.....so the selling seems to be pretty high and with the Covid for sur everything has been slowed down, so those 2 combined lead to some out of stock products.
