the praetorian were a highly decorated imperial guard regiment, based on the colonial british forces and roman praetorian guard. they wore fancy uniforms and fought orks. i think they were nicknamed "toysoldiers"
do they still make them or were they replaced becaue i havnt seen them in the imperial guard codex or anywere else and i thought storm trooper were nicknamed toysoldiers
i dunno. i just looked it up in wikipedia. heres some more cool stuff: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_the_Imperial_Guard_%28Warhammer_40%2C000%29
it said they dont make them anymore but they do sell them online like were i found them its almost like they made the Vostroyans to replace them
yah, about 10 years to late
why did they get rid of them
The praetorian's were special edish. They were made for a campaign event called "The Battle for Big Tooth River." I beleive they were retired not long after the end the campaign. The vostroyans did not replace the praetorians. Many guard models have retired from the current range of models and have not yet found replacements. If anything, the vostroyans are a way of replacing the valhallan range of guard models.
do u think they will retire vostryons after the fall of mudusa V and are they retireing vallhalen and can you still use praetorian if you have an army or are they banned from being used in TT battles and im talking about can they use them in a real tournment fight that ppl host like campaign fights
Not banned, no. They just can't be screwed to make boxes and blister packs and put hem on the shelves. There was a regiment with the British royal guard "Marge simpson" hat. Needless to say, DISCONTINUED
