I understand the Q&A answer regarding the large campaign rewards like Yamamoto and Halsey, but why are the others so infrequently offered for sale?  To be clear I'm not talking about the special portrait variety but the ones which affect gameplay like Honore and Jutland.

I'm not in sales, but I guess their business model must indicate that offering some of their products some of the time is more profitable.  I mean, they could have every premium ship available all the time, but they don't.  I guess something about seeing "oooh the Kidd is back on sale!" makes you more likely to buy it than if it was always there.

They cant just openly sell captains 24/7 without aggravating the p2w folks, and if it was a non stop stream of captains, both performance boosted and also just Redskins like dasha, it would get very old very fast.

I got Dunkirk a few weeks back, but he's tied to a collection. 

Honoré was part of a challenge or campaign.  And other were available for purchase. 

If they're a collection reward then they "might" still be attained IF you're working on their assigned collection.

Well what they did is there is 2 sets of captains for each nation with special captains... one was earn able and the other was sold

Dasha is a player on the Washington Redskins? That explains why I have no inclination to buy the captains in the Arsenal.

You're in luck!  New RN captain is coming in 7.8.  Bert Dunkirk!  Brother of Jack and Ernie. Available with RN tokens in the arsenal.

This is good but I was hoping for a Honore brother too.

John Doe, the Russian and German ones are in PTS Arsenal for 35k coal.  As long as you are farming coal you will be likely to get them at some point either from a country arc token system (like Dasha/Dunkirk) or in the arsenal for coal.
