Had reply, they are gone permanently. Other stuff will disappear as stocks run out

Is that for BFG too or just Epic?

BFG I can see staying a bit......Damn GW

All SG I believe, he specifically mentioned Epic, BFG, necromunda and Warmaster. A lot more has now disappeared

Anyone had any indication if this stretches to FW too...?

Assume not, but thought it best to check....

Cheers

from what novemberrain said a few pages back, FW are in the process of actually renewing their BFG moulds, unless it was a lie to pacify the asker, kind of like when you tell a kid their dog "went to the farm"

I imagine they have their own ideals and practices so it remains to be seen.... I have one final FW order planned to complete my Tau, then I'm washing my hands of GW entirely....

I imagine that GW don't talk to FW about the SG stocks and vice versa. I can't see the FW line much outliving the SG line though.

Yeah, It would seem silly that FW would continue to sell stuff for a game that GW themselves no longer stock online.

With all that extra stock space, say hello to many many more FW heresy chapter shoulder pad kits and over priced books.

At least they have let everyone panic buy SG stuff just before the annual price rise... ::)

well, I don't know about BFG, but FW have kept the aeronautica-compatible epic models going, hopefully that will be a lifeline for a while.... todays panic buying wiped me out, need to recharge the finance batteries before doing a FW blowout.... :(

Yea... Well, I've abused my plastic friend/nemesis and ordered the bits which I *have* to have to complete my guard and marine forces.
I bet there is some bean counter somewhere rubbing his hands with glee at the sudden spike in SG sales....

apparently GW customer services have recived a *lot* of complaints, not that they'll take any notice of course.....

I'd love to find out that it was all a con, or they blame it on a balls up- and turns out that they just wanted to see how much they could sell in SG.

Who knows, maybe they will apoligise for it next week, and claim it was a mistake and they are not going- but thanks to the huge increase in sales, Epic will be getting a new box set game (with 4 starter armies, terrain and a free FW £50 gift card, all for £30!) as well as a new range of miniatures too epic to be made for 40k, and that no one under the age of 15 could enter in a bi-weekly store SG games night....Oh, sorry..got carried away dreaming for a minute!

According to other forums it seems to be a general metal cull
