New Dark Eldar

Post by Calisson »

New DE codex about to be released.
Little change for the modles, though.

Not too bothered for the codex, but new Dark Eldar minis are always nice :D

Only saw Haemonculus and Wracks so far though, would be hard to squeeze them in a Dark Elf army... Wracks could be a good base for warlocks though hmm...

Is it just me, or do all of the 40k releases seem to be really lacking at the moment? I don't pay that much attention to PowerArmour 40,000, but as I recall there was only the stupid wolf-chariot for Space Wolves, and Grey Knights didn't get anything at all.

The Dark Eldar range did get a massive overhaul not to long ago - but, still, I was hoping for a few things that I could add as Dark Elves (specifically, something to use as a BWS). Ah, well, here's hoping for End Times Malekith!

The whole zombie style theme doesn't really work for me for Dark Eldar.

Mind you, I was never much enamoured by the whole concept of Dark Eldar: Eldar were meant to be simultaneously good and evil, thus marking the 40k universe as different from Fantasy. What next? Arboretum Pixies?

Took me by surprise.

New Haemonculus would make the basis of a nice Warlock themed conversion ...or even something for the Vampire Counts:

Fingers crossed we get a badass DE character release at somepoint...

They have to make up for the years of neglect they faced between 1998 and 2010 :P

I think it's more to the effect that GW are rushing 40k books out as quickly as they can print them in order to protect their IP/keep up with the new edition (which was rushed out to protect their IP).
