Again, apologies if this is mentioned elsewhere.

But noticed this morning the bale Taurus has been removed from forgeworld's site, been keeping an eye on things to buy after new year!.

Good riddance. I mean don't get me wrong, I'm sad to see a Chaos Dwarf piece going OOP, but quite frankly I'm not going to miss it. The model was pretty much poorly designed from a gaming perspective. That flimsy plastic rod? Wasn't going to last more than three games (max).

And why the hell hadn't it got a rider???? I mean, you have a Taurus WITH A SADDLE but no rider (plus no options to buy one separately), for a list that DOESN'T ALLOW you to field just the bull as a monster. I think I've seen the model on this forum once (maybe twice) since its release.

Get Drazoath, it has more details and can actually be fielded as a Prophet on Taurus.

That's true, Skink. I just hope this redundant miniature removal doesn't herald the demise of the range.

Nuh, I won't say so... Look at the replies Forgeworld is sending us. They say they are discontinuing products that didn't sell well, which obviously was the Bale Taurus' case. I really can't see them getting rid of Infernal Guards, UNLESS we will indeed be squatted in the End Times.

But how about the Skullcracker? Some non-redundant part of the range could disappear if it doesn't sell well enough. Nothing strange about that, really, but it could mean that it's best to buy what you want as soon as possible if it isn't a well-known big seller. Happy

Well, if we reason following the mentality of the allmighty dollar then... The Skullcracker is going to see extinction as well. But again, are you going to miss it? It's abismally bad (gaming wise), and you can easily convert one out of a regular Iron Daemon kit (look at BABIS' blog).

Last time I was on there about a day ago Drazoath was marked out of stock. Now he seems to be back in stock. The Skullcracker is again marked out of stock.

I don`t think the skullcracker will necessarily be canceled. It doesn`t count if it is bad ruleswise but if it sells. And it seems to me people buy it :-).
