    Nids Battleforce Availability

    Not that I'm looking currently but you can't even order this from GW anymore. Anybody know what the deal is?

    I'm not going to start any wild speculation I'm sure we can all draw our own conclusions but I'm curious if anybody has any concrete info as to why.

    I'm wondering too. There are only two reasons why a stock would be removed:
    1) no longer selling.
    2) demand is so high that the item is out of stock.

    While I like nids, I can't see #2 as being true. That makes me think #1 is the case. They could either be dropping the BF box and selling nids in their regular packages, redoing the BF box with new selections, or ramping up for a new production run. Personally I'm guessing they are just redoing for new selections as, unless they plan to announce a new nid codex soon, it doesn't make sense to drop the BF box before the holidays.

    As always though, I'm a "wait and see" kinda guy.

    Talked to someone about this the other day. Tyranids are getting a new Codex early next year, so they've stopped producing the Battleforces.

    Three people actually - two were the owners of the local gaming stores, one was a GW sales person on the phone. Them and the Necrons are getting new Codexes early next year according to what I was told.

    That means they would appear to be a lot closer than last I heard. Good news and all, but damn I hope the codices are up to scratch and not rushed in an attempt to get them out.

    I had heard they were working on Nids, and everyone knows they're working on 'Crons, but early next year? That wouldn't happen to be next fiscal year would it? You know like April/May instead of Feb./March?

    I was told early, but that could mean anything. Financially, the next fiscal year would make sense. But I doubt GW has to worry about financial issues.

    Bell of Lost Souls reports Tyranids as Q1 2010. I'm gonna bet they mean, Fiscal Year, and peg 'Nids codex update between April and June, of next year, as that is the first three months of the U.K. fiscal year.

    After digging some more it looks like our update is sooner than expected. Some sites are saying as early as Jan-Feb.

    I stocked up on a couple extra battleforces recently at a good price but now I'm wondering if I'm going to regret that. Could go either way I guess. The new box could be awesome with more options that fit the new dex... or it might be nerfed since the battleforce was THE way to grow a standard nid list. But hey, I'll try to be optimistic till the official word.

    I don't know what's with all of your stores, but my local Games Workshop still carries the Tyranid Battleforce. Hell, some new kid just bought one the other day as his start into Tyranids.
