It feels to me that they’re doing a lot of consolidation either shoulder pads. I’m certain that I’m about a years time all that will be available will be the mk3 & MK4 versions in some way.

Let’s not forget that GW do produce 4 of the Legions shoulder pads in plastic. Whilst not specifically for HH marks of armour they do work very well!

Yeah. Maybe they'll do a thing where it's a bundle of Mark III/Mark IV shoulders.... Hopefully :lol:

In regards to the plastic ones: The Dark Angels ones are kind of "meh", but their Primaris Upgrade shoulders actually fit the aesthetic of the FW ones more, while being noticeably different. Blood Angels lack the defined wings. All of the other ones (Ultramarines, Space Wolves, Iron Hands, Raven Guard, Salamanders, Imperial Fists and White Scars) are a pretty good match, just not Mark III-looking (Primaris Shoulders look similar to Mark IV, which is why I was using the Iron Warriors Mark IV on my Iron Warriors Primaris Marines)

Yeah, I use the Ultramarines plastic ones on my "Liberators of Krade" project:

Removing more EC pads is frustrating.

If there are transfers, couldn't give a flying fig, but without anything, it's ludicrous.

Update: Iron Warriors Mark IV shoulders are now completely gone from the site, not even a "No Longer Available" entry on the website.


Yep, Emperors Children MkIII and Dark Angels MkIV have also dropped off the site too...

 

Another culling has started.. I really wonder what would be left of the original game, as it was intended first.

HH outside of the UK (if my local seen is any indicator) Is Quickly turning into a game were the majority of resin in now recast/3D printed, such decisions by some analyst at GW are only going to exacerbate the issue.

Do t cater to your customer bases wants expect them to look elsewhere. There is a reason recasters are popping up faster than GW can shut them down.

Its the same issue with none marine armies face they don't sell because they don't get new.kits and they don't get new kits because they don't sell.

I am happy I decided to use MK4 Iron Warriors emblems for shoulder pads from shapeway a few months ago. I shall continue to do so given this update...

I really like posts like these. People go with pirates and knockoff makers giving FW no incentive to keep stuff around, then complain when FW axes it because the money that could have kept the line alive went to parasites instead. Gee, who could have predicted that shocking turn of events? rolleyesclean.gif

 

And I'd have honestly understood if people went with better option but vast majority of recasts and 3d prints are either worse quality, more expensive than FW (never mind plastic GW ones), or both. And then there is doubling down and going to thief who pays no taxes, works against keeping hobby alive, and steals designs better people made and I really wonder what people doing so are thinking dry.png

Space Wolves land raider doors and MK IV shoulder pads are no longer available. 

 

A real pity, I literally had the LR doors in my cart, they were made unavailable while I was ordering.

 

Very disappointing.
