They're still there, good as ever. On the classic range or ebay. Col. Gravis is currently building a fantastic Pret army, check out the conversion board.

The models are hard to come by, and they are hardly mentioned in any recent GW fiction or fluff, but the good old tea-sippers haven't gone the way of the squats yet. They are still perfectly canon and usable, even if they don't do the models in stores. I think that GW are trying to edge away from the Praetorians as being too heavily themed on a historical army (although that doesn't seem to be a problem for the Death Korps :), but they still exist. Try PMing Col. Gravis for any info on Praetorian fluff.

My impression is that the molds are old and breaking, they have new plastic models that have higher profit margins. They arn't going to invest in new all metal molds, but they'll squeeze every drop of money out of the old ones.

I wish they would bring the old Praetorians back. I miss those models.

They still have them, unless your talking about the rouge trader ones of course...

I too am collecting a Praetorian Army, albiet, mine isn't half as good as Col. Gravis's, hes the really expert around here, hell, hes the biggest expert on the Praetorians I've ever seen!

Sure it does. The topic is on carapace armor, not just the carapace doctrine, though it doesn't fit in the previous debate.

Kiddies, this is a lesson in keeping track of which tab is which topic . Oops.
