Get all metal models you want NOW!!!(previous shades)

Sun Oct 20, 2013 7:28 pm

Guys, bad news for the tournament players; Shades are not on the UK Gw website any more. I'm pretty sure the'll release all the models that have disappeared after the hobbit but that's still quite a while.

Update: I think all faith in GW is now safely misplaced. Get all metal models you want now that can't be found of ebay.

Don't hold your breath. Several models that disappeared, seemingly to be 'fine'casted, have been gone for over a year. Especially now that barely any 'fine'cast models are produced at all, it doesn't look as if (m)any will be back.

To an extent it would be good thing. Not allowed converted models? Well the're no available any more so modding my own models will be fine. Now time to get some green stuff, lay in wait for prowlers to go and sculpt away. :twisted:

But if that is the case then I'm going to have to dedicate all Christmas expenditure to metals. :( Oh well there nice models and it'll mix it up a bit having some elves and men. I can't justify any evil models because my friend has the fallen realms and mordor only has a few useful and good metal models left.
Here is my list. :cry:
Armoured Glorfindel
Arwen Foot and Mounted
Cirion and Madril
Elladan and Elrohir
Erestor
Faramir, Captain of Ithilien
Flói Stonehand, Loremaster of Moria
Gollum
2X Khazâd Guard 1
2X Khazâd Guard 2
2X Moria Goblin Prowlers(still undecided on these)
Thranduil, King of Mirkwood

So many possibilities lost. So many army chances for future hobbyists lost. Arnor, the feifdoms,,much of gondor and rohan,numenor,most of the rivendel heroes,lothlorien and mirkwood virtually useless,Durins folk crippled by the absence of floi and khazad guard,harad and umbar loose a large preportion of there units,isenguard lacking powerful heroes,eastern kingdoms loosing the khandish,mordor losing 6! of Gw's percious named wraiths, moria loosing drahag and the goblin king along with others, angmar virtually non existent. This is a sad time for us indeed! :cry: :cry:

My advice, would be to get all the LOTR models that you want ASAP. As a movie licence tie-in game which GW has made no effort to support and promote beyond the bare minimum required, I expect the LOTR SBG will be relegated to specialist games, sold off or scrapped entirely within 5 years after the last Hobbit film.

Do you think they'll keep going with the plastics and finecast?

Yes. For now.

Wish they simply kept the moulds in storage and sold them to interested parties after the license ends. They could make some money out of it, and it wouldn't surprise me if quickly-growing Warlord Games was interested in acquiring some, for example.
