I can't find the new models thread but, in any case, this isn't really new models. The Dark Vengeance models - including the OOP cultists - are currently up for order (£85):


Maybe we can use this thread to spread news of other interesting made to order reissues.
Now I just need someone to not want the cultist models in that set, so I can buy them off them...

Ironically, I have the rest of DV still on sprue, just not interested in chaos space marines or dark angels.

That’s an interesting development. They must have archived the old mould for them. I often wondered why they never split these sets up in such a way as to be able to release them after the main box is OOP as an army starter set. Dark Vengeance had some decent stuff as did Black Reach. Someone that Ork stuff would have been useful like the deffcopta or plastic warboss!

They did re-release WFB 8th edition and the 1st AoS starter as 'start collecting' boxes. One problem with the 40k ones is that the two factions were mixed up on the same sprues, so it wouldn't be possible to do just the Chaos side or even just the cultists without tooling new molds.

Ach! If only I’d seen this when I had some cash. But I’ll just assume we’re on opposite sides of the pond, so shipping would’ve killed it anyway...

I've still got them (UK), and no-one is battering my door down to have them, so if you get enough cash I'll still have them.

They are nice, but you could probably convert your own plastic ones for much less money.

That said, you made me check the prices and it looks like the Platoon is a bit of a bargain (by GW standards). Do they usually do bundle savings on these or is it perhaps a mistake?


Two regular infantry squads (2x £25) = £50
Three autocannon teams (3x £15) = £45
Chenkov = £15

That comes to £110 if bought separately, but it's listed as £75.
