PostSubject: Dark Eldar Update?   Fri May 13 2016, 00:26

So while lurking on the forums I've begun to notice just how "well" off Dark Eldar are going and I have to ask, do you all have a guess for when we are going to be updated? Do you think we will have to wait till 8th edition, if so when do you think that'll be? Or do you think they may try to badly patch us?

Some rumours suggest September for either a 7.5 edition codex, or a bunch of formations. It is only rumours so far, however.

it is nearly impossible for us to get another codex or another supplement.

Maybe we get new rules with 8th edition, but everything else is wishthinking.
We got a 7th Edi Codex recently and there is still a missing Chaos Codex....
BA needs a new codex, or supplement.
And DE are way to small, as for playercount.

we are the last in line^^

I don't think so. Games workshop wants to ruin Chaos Marines a little more so we could actually be due before they get a new codex.

I have edited your text. If you have to manually censor your words then you shouldn't be using them on this forum. Cheers - Cavash

They added something for Orks and Space Wolves, which are 7th edition books released before DE so it's possible a similar treatment for Dark Eldar but honestly I don't know. Maybe just a reprint (like Crimson Slaughter or Black Legion), a little expansion (Decurion and some formations) or in the best (but nearly impossibile) case a supplement, maybe a campaign with another (marine)army, like Chaos Daemons.

The main problem is that in the actual situation we need an update to not become completely underpowered and I hope GW will understand this. Probably we are one of the most forgotten armies of 40k but in the past months I see (in generical warhammer forums) an increase of Dark Eldar lists.

An increase? How come? Are they sick of power Armour?

Don't know...
But
Dark Eldar is an esthetically awesome army. The main reason I started play this army is the models design (I knew they were weak after tongue )

Doubt we'll see a new (second) 7th edition codex. Maybe another supplement book with the release of, say, Vect - giving us a few more formations and special rules etc but then again, as already pointed out, we are at the back of the line.

At the moment though all eyes are on the release the main FAQ and our FAQ - waiting for these is like waiting for a Christmas Day that you don't want to face....

I wouldn't say we're at the back of the line...it's been 2 years since our codex was released, and almost every single army has had a new codex in that timeframe, OR been given a supplement/update.

If you count the release of the genestealers thing as a tyranid update, we're at the FRONT of the line. Very Happy

We need a gargantuan creature too..

Out of curiosity what would a Dark Eldar gargantuan creature even look like? Would we have a mech or some kind of Coven monstrosity? I'm really wondering how a gargantuan coven creature would look like except for a techno abomination (Warcraft Abom).

What would you guys want from a new book if you could get it?

A gargantuan creature would probably either take the form of an uber-grotesque, an uber-talos, or some kind of perverted wraithknight.  (Canonically, there are corrupted Wraithguard that Vect keeps around, so it isn't out of the question.)

If I get nothing else from a new supplement, I just want my characters back.  Even if I can't have them all, just the Duke.

From a codex/supplement I would like to have skyfire added to ravagers, to be able to move them 12" and fire all weapons at full ballistic skill. I would like to have my raiders ignore Jink again, and our named characters back or as Jimsolo said, at least the Duke. I would like the Voidraven's bomb to be a D weapons as well.

But we need stuff to kill those things. Like a virus weapon from the coven or a better void mine etc

Ugh, I really hope if we do get a Gargantuan its NOT an uber-Grotesque or Talos. Its just seems.......unoriginal.

I'd much rather have Vect as a LoW, and the Dais of Destruction as a Super-Heavy.

I think Dias would be included in the profile of Vect, a 300-400 beaststick. 2 LoW for DE is quite impossible.

For kill gargantuan maybe a formation with increased poison shots (4+ even for Gargantuan)

I would rather have the Dais of Destruction separate from Vect so that I don't have to field him in every battle if I want to take a super-heavy.

That would be the best solution for an easy use of Vect but the LoW of the other armies are huge guys: Wraithknight, Stormsurge, IK, Stompa, Beneblade, The big monolith one of Necron (don't remember the name).

Ork style of a superheavy and a character (Ghaz) would be nice, but honestly I don't think so.

I'm doubtful about a new codex any time soon - DE aren't a power armor army, lol. What I would be interested in seeing are some new formations (particularly one that would make Wych cult units viable). The Kabalite Raiding Party was underwhelming, but I haven't seen the Haemonculi Covens supplement yet. Did that supplement include some better formations?

You telling me that the covens, with all their test subjects (read: victims), couldn't create some enormous monstrosity...

Yall just want vect back, why does he have to be a LoW, we have hardly any named HQ's...

I am thinking some kind of super heavy skimmer (maybe vects ride?) and a covens gargantuan creature.

I actually agree with you, at least on some level, Sully. I'd rather vect not be a LoW, or if he is, make him a LoW with the option to upgrade him to include his Dais as a single selection, which should also be a seperately purchaseable super-heavy LoW choice on it's own.

That said, I couldn't see DE having Gargantuan MCs as much as superheavy walkers or skimmers. Bear in mind that, in the fluff, pretty much all DE units are actual dark eldar citizens who may or may not have been experimented upon, technological creations(vehicles), or beasts captured and enslaved.

Actually....that might make for a pretty damn awesome GMC. An enslaved gargantuan warp creature...maybe even a daemon of some sort, with Beastmasters/Wyches riding on it's back, prodding it with agonizers and whips to drive it to do their bidding...could be a cool idea. Twisted Evil
