The REAL Fate of The MK1 Deimos Rhino?

MK1 DEIMOS PATTERN RHINO

Come see what may be the true fate of the “Sold Out” Forge World MK1 Deimos Pattern Rhino, when we’ll see it again for sale, and by whom!

We reported recently that the MK1 Deimos Rhino was currently “no longer available” for sale on Forge World’s site. Of course we stated our case for why it MAY be coming back as a plastic kit, however no one until now may have know for sure.

Battle Bunnies is reporting that this is just a case of the kit getting a new product code, and it will be back for sale soon.

The reason that the Rhino is unavailable is because they are changing the product code. This is because all their tanks are being moved over to boxes instead of bags. This will affect the last 4 digits of the product code. It should be available in a few days.
Furthermore (and this is just my opinion folks) Forge World is aware of what Games Workshop is releasing months in advance, I believe they would of held off releasing the new command tank if the plastic was coming so soon.
So, although I think it’s more of a ‘when’ situation than an ‘if’, I think that a plastic Deimos is still a way off.
 One little phone call to Forge World and the Battle Bunnies may have cleared it all up for us. Good on them for helping out the community like they do.  And good on Forge World for fixing their packaging to help get orders around the globe in one piece!

    It would make sense, new stuff (like the leviathan) comes in a bag, in a white box now, looks like everything that isn’t in a blister may get such treatment – looks more professional for a start.

    Please make it and basic troops plastic for all the marks of power armour. They both are huge seller and will be for years with no end in sight for HH. This will cause quality to go way up and replacements parts down. In plastic form the sprues would be able to placed into a box easier and they will be able to handle the shipping process so much better.
