The 1998 Catalog dropped the older cxx numbers that had been used from 1983 and replaced them with numbers based on the page number within the catalog. It was possible to identify specific pieces for the first time.
This catalog also marks the beginning of the all Warhammer era, with Citadel increasingly concentrating on support for their home grown game systems, WHFB, WFRP, WH40k Rogue Trader and Blood Bowl. The only survivor was the Eternal Champion range.
Most of the pieces in this catalog were carried into the 1991 catalog (the same as the 1986-1991 compilation).
