Where has the Tallarn range gone?

Morning all. One exciting week until we get to the FW weekender! So I was flirting through the Weekender schedule and reading all about the battle on Tallarn on 40k wiki sites. Saturday puts a lot of focus onto this momentous tank battle, which led me on two Tangents. 

1: as we are planning to reenact every major Horus Heresy Campaign, which Bunny would fight my Iron Warriors during this momentous tank battle? 

2: I wonder how much it would cost to get a Tallarn army together. 





Obviously the 40k range is very limited, but with Forge World creating a whole range of new Resin Minis for the Tau Imperial Armour years ago, we could at least get a worthy looking force. . . Now to go to FW website and go to Astra Militarum and click on . . . What. . .

Now the range appears to have been removed. Is this down to a repricing of
The models before a new release? Or have they been discontinued?

The Tallarn are very active during 30k after the Battle of Tallarn, they helped the Imperium for decades. I can appreciate we would not see Tallarn on the surface whilst irradiated waste land, so maybe the Solar Auxilia are more suitable choices?
Hopefully have not been removed. It does seem silly to remove them with all the Tallarn publicity at the moment from the HH Weekender. Anyone know where or when they went?

  1. They've been gone for months. They weren't selling well so were cleared to make room for new codes.

  2. 40K Tallarn range won't help you. Tallarn wasn't a desert during HH.

    1. Yep I appreciate that hence the "I can appreciate we would not see Tallarn on the surface whilst irradiated waste land, so maybe the Solar Auxilia are more suitable choices?" comment above.

    2. Sorry if my comment was too harsh. English is not my native langage.

      Tallarn is known as the largest tank battle of HH because of the massive use of viral weaponry. So Leman russ seems to be much more suited. Of course, SA is perfectly suited too to hold objectives.

      To tell you the truth, I'm surprised to see IW instead of DG.

    3. No insult was taken :)

      Iron Warriors instead of Death Guard? I think the reason we see Iron Warriors comes clear in Black oculus short story on black library. I Will have to read though :)

    4. Yes, of course. But viral weaponry was a hint for DG. On the other hand, largest tank battle was a hint for IW too.

  4. I saw the codes slowly disappearing last summer and grabbed five/six of the Tallarn riding worm horses (because I love those models) and some snipers. I am glad I did because the range is gone now. It is sad to see FW cutting chunks out of their old lines.
