Yep, GW seems to take a while in relaeasing some of their stuff. Apparently
it is an attempt to not flood the market, and partly due to epic's poor
sales. I was interested in the variations for the Imperator, and the
warmonger, and very interested in the exodites. I've heard that the exodites
will be part of the new releases for epic 40K, so they've onlt sat on them
for about 2-3 years, which seems about average for GW. When they get stuck
in a WFB or 40K rut, epic was always put way back on the back-burner. Maybe
it'll change when they make epic 40K as strongly supported as the other big
two. 8-).

Sheesh. Glad I play warzone now. Minnies for half GW's price. I like that.

I think the chances are they will be released like the armies books and
codexes rather then a boxed set. The cards are going, and the books make
them more money, they charge the earth for them. I would be very suprised if
they don't. It would be totally out of character.

The deals they have on phone order can be great. It's about the only time
that they have been reasonably priced. Some of those deals have been great.
Got all my old style Knights (the Eldar ones are wiggy) in a great deal once.
