I just looked and they're showing up for me, both in the strike team and breacher varieties.

Maybe you forgot to click "view all" or just scrolled to quick?

A lot of stock across the 40k range is being repackaged to bring it in line with 8th edition. So I wouldn't get too excited... :neutral:

I doubt that the Firewarrior box will change much if at all. They probably sold out of their current boxes to make way for new boxes (with updated rules) in them.

This might also tie in to the new codex as well which we will hopefully see in January or February.

I'm still waiting for knarlocs big and small to reappear on their FW site...

FAQ awhile back said there would be new rules for them. Presumably when the codex drops?

Fire Warriors will be back in stock shortly, they're just temporarily out-of-stock. If it's urgent check other hobby wargaming retailers in your country.

Didn't FW officially discontinue the Knarloc range though? I guess they're getting new rules, but I don't see the models coming back.

This is nothing.

A few months back, Sisters of the Thorn were in a similar state on the GW webstore, so I snatched up the last box from my LGS.

Within a few weeks, they were back in stock online and IRL, with new AoS packaging and a price hike.

Looking at the UK webstore, the Sunshark/Razorshark is "Temporarily out of stock Online", while the two Fire Warriors boxes are "No longer available".
My guess is that whoever is in charge of managing the webstore accidentally marked them as discontinued items and not just temporarily out of stock.

Anyway, I guess we will see soon enough. ;)

New Fire warrior models are very unlikely as they were allready updated and unless we get new type of fire warriors there is not much to change about them (though I would love more options, especially more shas'ui bits as you would usually build two squads with the 10 man box)

What I expect instead is either updated kroot models (if they become viable in codex) or new nicassar models, though I am wishing for updated hammerhead or stealth models, maybe even new suits like FW's xv9's or nonstealth xv25 variants with plasma rifles for "heavy infantry" (simalarily to SM termies)
