Default Models and Units that have disappeared from the table top side entirely

Just had a thought, I'm trying to recall ones I know but thought I'd share this with everyone.

What units that had specific models do you recall that when a new codex came out completely dissappeared never to return, NOT ones that were remodelled and brought back to revamp but a unit along with it's models that was completely scrapped in a new codex never to be brought back again.

Closest I can think of is Tyrannic war veterans whos rules were scrapped and are now just used as sternguard. Actually, can you still buy Tyrannic war veteran models?

Were LotD in the 4th Ed SM Codex?

Nobz mobs weren't in the last Ork Codex...
Exodites, Harlequins and Corsairs disappeared between 2nd and 3rd Eldar Codicies.
Penal Legion, IG Beastmen, Adeptus Arbites...a lot have disappeared for a couple years plus...

Yep

Yes they were, they're an elites choice, with one unit per Warboss becoming troops.

Huh? Those are still in the BA codex and version added to the new SM codex.

I personally lost my Sanguinary High Priest in the new BA dex

Lots of Iron Warriors players lost their Basalisks

The ork codex didn't have many models created so we didn't lose many models but we did lose units never to return.

Skarboyz
Liftadroppa is now only a stompa weapon but you use to be able to field them like zzap guns.
The teleporta boyz that were only for use in the Armagedon codex
My old favorite was the bubble chucka


Red Orc

God, gives children to people so that death won't seem so disappointing.

-Thats the current Codex, the previous one had no Mob option.

Yes, but they were all dropped for at least one Codex
Morfangdakka - are you sure, I don't remember them being in a 40k Ork Codex, only in Epic...Bubble Chucka's especially...

I'd like to add Harlequin Land Raiders, Zoats, Rough Rider Command Squads and Lord Solar Macharius to the list - even though they didn't all have models. Oh, and Chaos Robots, which even featured in a Space Crusade (or was it Space Hulk...) expansion.

I know some of these were dropped and re-introed, I'm talking about things that never came back like the Jetbikes of the Imperium and Tyranic War Veterans that have no rules and models aren't being made.

But the ones I recall now are already up there nice work guys .
