I recently found out at my local G/W store that the Dark Eldar model line has been discontinued. The store cant even get a hold of DE codices anymore. They're still supposed to be totally legal in tournament play, but they are no longer making the models. Does anyone else have anymore details on this?
Well I cant say i'd be losing any sleep over it if the DE were axed. Always hated them.But theres a possibility of the DE stuff having finished its current production run. GW do their production by army in sequence. EG, all Eldar stuff for one week, SM and IG for a month (most popular and bulky armies), then X, then Y, and so on.
"It fits like clothes made out of wasps!"
Andy Chambers himself said that DE will definitely not get removed from the game. Probably they're just preparing a new range of models, they want to get rid of the old stocks.
I haven't been able to attain a copy of the 3rd and (I think there is a) 4th edition of the dark eldar codex. ALL i have is the 2nd.
The 2nd edition codex IS the 4th edition codex.
It's the 2nd edition of codex DE, but it works with the (more or less) soon to come 4th edition of WH40K.
Phew, I thought I was behind on my dark eldar info :o .
Thanks for helping.
First - sorry to the mods as I've also posted this elsewhere before I found this proper topic.
They are not discontinuing Dark Eldar. Some GW stores will be experiencing problems ordering certain codes. It has always happened in GW retail and it always will. Some retail staff take this as a sign that something is being stopped and then start telling customers and then we end up with wild rumours rampant across the web. The vast majority of retail staff aren't this idiotic and realise that sometimes HQ mucks up on supply and demand projections and that they run out of certain products. If you try mail order they will still be selling DE codices because they have a different stockpile and a seperate warehouse at HQ.
Sometimes retail staff have great rumours and information but I'd always take it with a pinch of salt, often they are as in the dark as everyone else. Talk to the cell managers, rather than staff or store managers, as they are likely to have a better grasp of whats going on. Better still make sure your rumours come from someone at HQ - there are many areas of the web where GW information is fairly accurate and is not being fed by wild speculation.
good im only half done with my army

yeah, sorry if this is totally false, all i really know is that the GW guys has said that they are unable to recieve any more DE models from HQ unless its through mail order...which im kinda upset about seeing as how i too am not finished with my army yet
Actually, there already is a very old topic about this... the search option is your friend if you haven't been here for too long yet. Thread locked.
