Default No more Monolith

My friend just went in to the LA bunker and tryed to buy a monolith but they did not have any. They said that all the monoliths were recalled and you can not even order them online.

Any idea why? Was something wrong with them or are they planning on not selling them anymore?

Could be the Necrons won the Necron/Dark Eldar design race, and monoliths are getting removed as a standard choice, making them Apoc only. Also could be a total re-design for material consideration, trying to make them smaller, thus cheaper. The latter theory would also be reliant on Necron winning the Codex race.

Just some rampant speculation on my part, but those are the two scenarios I see as being most likely.

Thanks,

The guys at the bunker think that the Monolith is getting a face lift.

You could say they 'phased out' - boom boom!!
Don't read too much into this, they can still be bought on the uk site at least, probably just temporary supply probs state side.

Wow that is pretty big news if that is the case. Though I just went on GW site and put them in my cart and was able to process an order.

TBH is if they are remaking the model its either gonna look better or complete crap. It looks great at the moment anyway.

I wouldn't mind them re-doing the monolith model. I wasn't too fond of it myself. But It's rare that they're doing so and noone noticed earlier, so I guess it'll just be a lack of stock problem.
