Probably the molds were starting to go
and the number sold werent worth the costs to remake them

about year-year and a half ago they redid all the DK stuff
for this reason
but DK are also a lot more popular then elysians

I'm just hoping they'll do more guard plastic infantry with all the attention 8th is getting IG
I can dream of plastic kasrkin or something with similar design aesthetic

@GenWilhelm anything special in regards to doing releases? or just copy the tag and add a descript
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Apr 20 2018 19:59
nah, just increment the version, copy the changelog thing from another release and update the version numbers, then the hardest part - give it a title

I’ve come to a pretty reasonable place with guard
If I want to collect a new regiment, 2 Command squads and 3 infantry squads are all I’ll collect of the main range. If there are some cool heavy weapons dudes or otherwise, I’ll pick up some; otherwise no
Keeps forces manageable

Quick FAQ interpretation question:
Page 136 – Chosen, Wargear Options
Change this unit’s wargear options to read:
‘• Any Chosen may take one item from the Melee
Weapons list.
• Up to four Chosen may choose one of the
following options:
• Replace his bolt pistol with a plasma pistol.
• Replace his boltgun with one item from the Combiweapons
or Special Weapons lists.
• Replace his boltgun and bolt pistol with a
lightning claw.
I read this that a Chosen who swaps for a Lightning Claw can also take a Melee weapon?
