Wave Serpents Are Back!

Just a quick update on this one, gang: Yesterday I was on the receiving end of a heartwarming email from Games Workshop. It said simply that “Eldar Wave Serpents are back in trade”.

What that means, at a simple level, is that GW moved the kit from direct-order-only limbo back to regular trade channels, which means I can now order them with my usual GW restock and keep them in stock.

In a larger sense, it’s an example of a good move on GW’s part, and it’s nice to see. With so much of the range disappearing into Finecast and the direct order negative zone, it makes me happy that GW has made the smart move of putting a high priority plastic kit back into circulation, instead of letting it languish.

Is this a sign of a kinder, gentler GW? Or could they just not keep their head in the sand any longer?

    Series: Core 2020
    Draft Entry - $15.00

    Want a way to play that offers a level playing field and lets you check out new cards at the same time? Then a limited format like booster draft may be for you. Unlike constructed formats, where you arrive with a carefully constructed deck ready to play, limited formats allow you to build a deck from new cards as part of the game.

    At the start of booster draft, each player opens a booster pack and picks a single card. (Don’t show the other players what you pick!) Then everyone passes the rest of their pack to player on their left, each player then picks a card from the pack they just received before passing again. This process continues until all the cards in those packs have been drafted. Then each player opens a second pack, but this time, you pass the pack to your right. After all those cards are drafted, you do the same with the third pack, passing to the left again.
