Units not available for sale

Postby TrazynTheInfinite » Tue Mar 13, 2012 4:54 pm

Forgive me if this is a stupid question as I am new to war gaming. I'm starting a Necron army and I noticed that many units that are mentioned in the Codex are not available on GW.com or my local shop. Like the Doom Scythe, Canoptek Spider, and Tomb Blades.
Are these units that have yet to be released or are they just not available in my area?

GW tend to release their models in waves.

For example the first wave is the initial release, which consists of the Codex, a few HQs and several new kits

then after a few months (usually) the majority of the other models are released.

and so on...

so necrons are still waiting for their next wave

It's not that it isn't available in your area. It's just not on the internet.

Don't even get me started with Tyranids... Our second wave came and we still don't have something like 6-8 models from our codex.

This is typical of GW. Generally most the rank and file units get a model, eventually. Some special characters don't ever get a model.

In the meantime part of the hobby is to make your own.

What does Matt Ward have to do with waves of models? Or the models themselves?
He just write the codex and try to give some background for the units.
I don't fight. I win. Got it?

Edgar Jacobi: Heh. Well, you know that kind of cancer that you get better from eventually?
Rorschach: Yes.
Edgar Jacobi: Well, that ain't the kind of cancer I got.

He just write's the power armor codex's and gives bad fluff that ruins everything that you will remember from the last codex.
