Riflemen dreads are popular. Who'da thunk it?

Received an interesting e-mail from Forgeworld this morning, in response to a couple of inquiries. I'll just quote the relevant bit;

The Mortis Autocannon is currently the most popular kit we make and we just cannot make them fast enough to keep up with demand. So they have been removed from sale to allow the casting department to catch up with back order and to create some more for stock. What this means is that it is likely to be 1-2 months before it is available to order once more.

For reference, this was the left arm autocannon I had been asking about. So, heads up if you're in desperate need for a rifleman dread, you're going to have to convert something up.


  1. This is one of those 'WTF' moments...both from GW and FW.

    GW saw the writing on the wall...Rifleman dreads have been a solid, NEEDED, choice since the current SM 'dex.
    And instead, they came out with a Venerable Dread kit that had everything BUT the double AC...
    and with PsiRifelmen coming down the pipe, GW didn't see fit to introduce a kit (like their Deffrolla pack)...and FW FAILED to pre-emptively ramp up production on a dreadnought arm they KNEW should be flying off the 'shelves'...

    Idiots, the lot of them...swear to GAWD!

  2. As I've said before, just another bonehead move! Go GW Go
