Its coming in plastic 

 

Just a shame that the 10man plastic drop pod wasn't designed as a 12man, with the 3 large doors, and have chairs/restaints optional. 2-birds with 1 stone! Thats what i would do. 1 gold - easy peezy.

I like this idea, you could use them and mix and match. Shame that they only look at the price tag. Why sale us something for £22 when they can sale us one of each for £85 total😔

I might sell the 4 I have and just use normal pods. If I can't get 6 of the same I'm likely not gonna use them.

How are they not convinced? Don't they have access to the same numbers?


It needs to be redesigned, a new mold needs doing and this won't be cost effective as the sales aren't huge

That's the option I went for, plus it's a dam side easier on the wallet.

Is that an opinion or do you know something?

 

FW hinted at it at the last weekender, but without any definite commitment.

Sell 1, and have a 3 + 3. Managed variation is always cool in my book! And doing things in 3s is always cool (classical speaking)!

PM me a message if this is the case mate, I will need 4 in the future when I see the BA rules.

If this is the case, then I'm a happy guy!
It's such a simple mode that there is no reason not to have it in plastic. The original was too damn heavy and clunky.
It would also make sense if they were going to do it in GW plastic. Regular dreads can't use regular pods any more in 8th so putting out another product that will let them do that will generate more $$$ for the suits.
Honestly, if they go plastic I'm going to buy 3 on day one. 3 Leviathans aren't going to land themselves!

I've had a reply from FW and it doesn't look good...

Hi Kyle,

Thank you for the email. Unfortunately the dreadnought drop pod kit is no longer in production.

Due to severe mould damage that our resins team rendered as irreparable the kit was removed from sale.
We are asking for updates to see if the studio are planing on a redesign or new kit but as yet we have not heard anything back.

With a packed work schedule already any return of a the dreadnought drop pod will be a long while off it at all.

Thank you again and sorry for any inconvenience.

Well.... that's kind of depressing :( 

 

It's alright, I waited years for Blood Angels and Custodes, I can continue to wait ;)

I know but considering my BA is going to consist of at least 3 I'm going to have to source them from elsewhere!

Luckily I got one shortly before they went out of stock.

As somebody who has been eyeing up the Imperial Bombard for a while now, I think I may have to take the plunge as you never know when older kits will disappear.

Bought 3 bombards at the last weekender, more interesting looking than the Legion Medusa IMHO
