Interesting that it includes the Nurgle Terminators, where there isn't a "difficult to build" (tongue.png) equivalent kit ...

 

++EDIT: Nope, there is one. :facepalm:

Well, that makes it actually impossible to get a Lord of Contagion outside of making your own or scouring Ebay.

 

Hopefully the teased model has something to do about fixing that, but that one has a Spewer, so it doesn't feel like he's a Lord of Contagion. Or any of the currently unavailable units, for that matter.

 

At least the Poxwalkers and Blight-hauler are staying. Retiring those would've been just shameful.

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, I'll be very surprised if the Dark Imperium kits aren't turned into Start Collecting(!)s like the 1e Age of Sigmar stuff did.

 

I genuinely did not expect the ETB stuff to get the chop though. It's not as if Intercessors and Redemptors aren't still staples of their lists? But then maybe that's the point, get people to buy the more expensive, full kits.

This is kind of intrigueing especially regarding intercessors

Maybe theres better molds they want to use or just going to refresh things and use ETB necrons and Assault Intercessors for 9th

We know they are doing new ETB kits.

The Doomstalker, Firestrike Turret and ATV were announced as ETB kits. Might be a few others they do.

The ETB Redemptor Dread will be a huge loss. The full kit can be soul-crushing to build, with so many parts in the kit that require tidying and assembly that have little-to-no flexibility or variation to the ETB kit - which has less than a dozen pieces. I might even pick some of them up.

While I liked posing the legs and even other things to a limited degree, it was DEFINITELY a laborous build & paint process. Took me at least a combined 30 hours. Been contemplating a Redemptor for my Templar force too, so maybe I should look at the ETB one before it's gone from independents... though I do have some ideas that would require that posability. Bah.

Must concur on the redemptor. I've only got a regular one and it was 'orrible to put together. The ETB one will be missed.

I dont feel the ETB Redemptor as a loss.
I Just build the normal one Last week and it was some great Hobbytime.
And you cant use the Pop goes the Monkey Upgrades on the ETB Dread.

I had planned to get one but ended up with the standard kits due to a weird trade. I had so much trouble putting the legs together correctly. Such a frustrating kit. 

I do wish I had already gotten the ETB agressors last year when I could get them for less than 30usd a box. The price is far too high now over ebay. 
Says they are sold out in the US. now. 
Oh well, my loss.

Paint will be stripped from the old in need, thick may it be like ceramite I will see it removed so that plastic and metal alike may see light of new paint. Models yet to be, boxed and in darkness will be assembled with due care and attention. For this task I am permitted to still buy the supplies needed to do my task but not one model more.

Loss of the Death Guard alternate sculpts is a shame, specifically the Plague Marines (never cared for the ETB Termies honestly). The Redemptor though, eh. Sure it's cheaper and, well, easier to build, but it isn't nearly as nice looking as the proper kit. Not as bad as the AOBR Dreadnought mind you.

 I work out side and am loosing feeling in my finger tips, it's hard to explain. I drop parts all the time now days, my hands just don't seem to work right these days.  

 A few of my friends have also had difficulty building them because of the way the hips are put together. 

New ETB/ push together is way better than it used to be.

Plastic ETB going OOP is a bad precedent.

It doesn't seem they're getting rid of the whole existing ETB range - Poxwalkers and Myphitic Blight Haulers are still available, just as well, they're the only way to get those models.

Each of these that have moved to LCTB have 'full' kits available, so it kind of seems inevitable they're making way for new kits to help promote the new edition of 40k and its starter sets :)

I am a bit gutted that the dreadnought is going, it's so much easier to build than the proper one I built.

 

Like Brother Adelard says you can buy it still from Hachette in the uk, I just ordered two for thirty two quid with free shipping for use later on. :tu:

 

Issues 24 and 25 and they still have easy fit Aggressors.
