Games Workshop has now launched their new Made To Order Scheme which will bring back a selection of old miniatures that you thought had gone the way of the dodo.
Here’s how it works…
“Sometimes products we haven’t made for a while become available for a limited period of time. These products can be found in the ‘Made to Order’ section. They will always be available for at least 48 hours, but the more you buy, the longer we’ll keep them on sale!
As we don’t start making them until we receive orders they can take up to 28 days to dispatch. You will receive a dispatch email when they leave, so you know they are on the way.”
What’s On Offer?
The focus this time around is a selection of old Warhammer 40,000 models with an Imperial Guard/Astra Militarum feel to them. Here’s a selection of the different models coming back this month starting with some variants on the Imperial Guard.
The Mordians were one of the big forces in the Imperial Guard line-up which drew me into Warhammer 40,000 in the first place. The big brash colours were certainly very inviting. The Valhallan Ice Warriors join the nostalgia trip back in time too.
To reassure you all of these models will be coming your way in metal so they’ll have that familiar heft that you so enjoyed when you first got your models.
Plenty of characters are also part of the mix including the Tallarn here represented by Captain Al’Rahem.
The shining golden figure that is Lord Solar Macharius might not be the greatest model out there, especially compared to the plastic offerings we get now, but he sure looks as intense as he did when we first saw him.
Finally, we have a more modern set of metal models that I LOVE and thought should have continued as part of the Astra Militarum even now. The Cadian Kasrkin look the business.
As Stormtroopers go THESE are the elite soldiers of the Imperium that I wanted to fight alongside. The big chunky armour, suped-up lasguns and seriously awesome looking helmets too.
There’s plenty to choose from so delve in and let us know if you’ll be picking stuff up.
