Many listing use the term 'OOP' ( out of production) or 'Rare' when describing a Warhammer 40k miniature.  This is often misleading, sometimes even Untrue.

OOP / Rare would suggest difficult to obtain, but in many cases a miniature could have ceased production some years ago and been superseded by another version but still be available by mail order or independent stockists.  Just because GW's high street outlets only stock a selection of the latest range ( At the latest price ), does not mean the old models have been teleported into the depths of the Eye of Terror.

That being said there are a number of limited and special editions which are difficult to come by.  This is usually reflected in their price, over £30 is not unusual for a truly limited Model.

With the help of a pile of back issues of White Dwarf, talks with many old and bold Gamers and GW employees I have tried to compile a list of the Warhammer 40k rarities.  Currentlty there are no pictures available here but I hope to produce a downloadable file with them all on for anyone that may be interested.
This list is as Complete as I can find, If you know of any others, spelling mistakes, errors etc, please feel free to contact me.  Thankls for looking.
