    Not sure if this is news, but I was on the Forge World site earlier and the biggest lizard is showing as ‘Out of stock & no longer available’. I’m a little sad, as I’d put it in my cart so many times but couldn’t justify hitting ‘buy’ on it; I’m also slightly relieved, as dropping £150 on a toy dinosaur does seem somewhat excessive, so I may have been saved from my own hubris,

    The optimist in me says “New plastic kit for Xmas 2018?!”. But probably not.

    They most be releasing something at a guess, why would you bother updating the warscroll and adding summoning points for a model that you would discontinue 2 months later......

    But it is GW so anything is possible.

    I’d almost certainly pull the trigger on a £100 Archaon-sized plastic Dread Saurian, so fingers crossed!

    from one seraphon guy to another:
    Is the Dread expensive? jop
    will you regret it? no
    is it worth it? jop
    would i do it agian? of course ^^

    if i would be rich, i would give every seraphon player a dread!!
    So he can enjoy what it means to have the killer of the prehistoric time :D

    I mailed their customer service as soon as I saw it earlier this week and the reply I got was that they are changing the packaging from plastic bags to some sort of box and that was why it was sold out. Should be back soon.

    I was going to say maybe it has to do with the move... Forgeworld just purchased a warehouse in Kentucky USA and a lot of orders have been delayed because of it. (2 months plus waiting here)

    The Lost Kingdoms equivalent looks cooler in my opinion. Still it be at least a year before they go up for sale, but we do have another option though still not quite as cool as the illustration in the Monster Arcanum...

    I don't think GW has any plan to release a new plastic one. They don't typically create new sculpts for existing Forge World models.

    I just looked on the site with my location as UK and it’s definitely showing as sold out and no longer available.
