They're still around in my store. I guess Vostroyans aren't hot in those area.

My store stocks them and I've played against them once, but that game was a while ago

Because they're metal, have a limited range, and are expensive? Could that possibly be it? :

Yeah, you don't see many all metal armies played full stop.

Its so much easier to make plastic models and they don't all have the same pose

plus metal models don't have all the conversion possibilities

You know, I had rgotten about them until yesterday, when I walked into the local hobby shop with my roommate, whom I had just gotten into 40k. He would walk up to random things and be like "What's this bug? Who can have this tank? Who are the guys with the funny hats?" It turns out there were tons of Vostroyans, and 1 person there had a Vostroyan army.

Nonsense. I play a full metal guard army (Steel Legion. Hells Yea.) The only weapons they supply us with are missile launchers, heavy bolters, plasma guns, grenade lanunchers and lascannons. With very little effort I've made models with flamers, meltaguns, autocannons, mortars, and with a little more effort, models with shotguns. The autocannons is hardly even classifiable as a conversion. It's also not too tough to throw together a couple vox operators. Another thing I've never understood is why people get all upset about a "limited range" with a guard army. You have 100 models on the field. Unless you make an entire squad with the same 2 models, you don't even notice that there's only 6 different poses of lasgun guys.
