Default Read this! THEY STOPPED CRUSADER SQUADS!

I am FURIOUS! I have been waiting for months for teh BT Crusader squad, and mere weeks after its release, THEY DROP IT!

Heres a link! This is teh most hoorifying news I have ever seen. Pardon my use of capitals, and edit if you must, but I am fuming!
http://us.games-workshop.com/games/4.../crusaders.htm

Please, voice your comments on this! I have never seen GW be more clueless. Maybe I am missing something, but why would they do this?

PS: At least tehy still have teh command squad...

This answers your question, i think. They want to sell their new upgrade packs.

What a bunch of c****. That just shows GW is trying to make money out of us. It'll be more expensive buying the tact. squads and the packs! This is an outrage! I really dislike GW...if it weren't for them creating the game, I'd hate them.

Same here!

I really hate the prospect of buying the upgrade sprue. Unfortuately, I probably will...

... if I could find it.
Anyone got a link? I couldn't find it on the web.

Thanks

Thats just plain wrong and overtly obvious. They cant even try to use some tact. Maybe there is another reason... *thinks*...*thinks*... ok maybe not.

Yea that is infuriating.

They dont even say why they arent available! No excuse-just "no longer available." Maybe 40k needs a new company...

I guess I wouldn't have as much of a problem with it if they had been up front from the beginning.* This may make it a little easier on the retailers.* When is the upgrade pack going to be released and for how much, I wonder.* I also wonder if this was always the plan, or did something change?

Balck Templars? Doesn't GW proofread any more?

Looks more to me like they decided to make the Black Templar sprues into it's own box rather than packing Tactical marines in with the sprues.* If you read the WHOLE NOTICE not just the part where they stop the crusade box you see they are splitting it up, not ending it completely. To be honest, if you calm down for a second and think, it's a good idea.

First off, how many already have Black Templar armies?* How many marines do you ahve int aht army?* Would you rather just buy the extra bits and convert your existing models with the bitz?* Would you really want to pay all that much more for more marine bodies if your going to need more sprues for them anyhow to match them with the rest of your Black Templars?


If your starting out it's probably going to cost you a bit more.* If your a vet though it's a fair price break.

My deepest apoligies, but I was quite 'flustered'.

I did see the notion of splitting them up. I was peeved becasue, even though my first army was and still is BT, I have never planned upgrading the whole thing. I just planned on buying a couple o' squads and mixing the models.

My sincere apoligies. You can lock this.

I feel like an idiot...

I'm not sure why everyone's so fussed...as far as I knew, this was what was always going to happen, and what's going to happen for all the Chapter-specific stuff from here on out. Ill comes down to shelf space, in the end. My GW certainly doesn't have space for six different flavours of Tac squad, and can't think of many others that do. So they release a limited number of boxes to drum up interest and make people aware of them, then once they're sold, they don't make anymore.

Not really a conspiracy, or, in my mind, even that bad a decision.
