I'm sure I've seen a better versions of that model somewhere (can't remember if it was a different sculpt or just better painted), but I couldn't find it.

I think we could be given new models without messing with the range too much something as simple as giving the trueborn and bloodbrides their own kits to make them distinct, a bit like what they did with the vanguard and sternguard veterans with the space marines

They could start by giving bloodbrides actual rules, instead of "+1 A +1 ld wyches".
Trueborns are fine, though.

They could give us a new Archon sculpt with mobility options . . .

Given they just removed the marine mobility options like they did to us in 5th ed - I doubt that we are likely to get anything back!

What's probably happening is that you will have to buy the White Scars supplement to get the rule for Captain on Motorbike. Rolling Eyes

People who think that model is bad ARE the problem with the hobby today.

It's all a matter of perspective really. You think it's people who think that model are bad are the problem with the hobby. I think that the kinds of people who'd take razorwing spam are the problem with the hobby..... like I said, perspective.

We are supposed to be ranting about GW (and playtesters). Not each others.
I didn't expect some kind of Spanish Inquisition.

There has always been different approaches to the hobby. To some people Blood Bowl and models with electric guitars are silly and uninteresting. To some, they are the incarnation of fun. To some, competitions ruin the fun. To others, they ARE the fun.
Some are here for the fun, others for the tactical challenge, others for the pleasure of painting, collecting, others for the lore and the superb universe...
There is no reason to think your approach of the hobby is better than other approaches. It's the variety that makes the Warhammer franchise so vast, and in fine so worthwhile of our time.

On topic, I heard the only thing GW is releasing for the Eldar line will be Ynnari crap. Ynnari Wraithguard for instance. This leads me to believe that, like I predicted, both Eldar and Dark Eldar are going to lose entire swathes of units to the Ynnari faction so they can be exclusive.

Assuming you're right that's . . . disappointing, to say the least.

I'd really like for GW to give their existing factions some attention, rather than just making new factions.

For a non-Eldar example, I'm sure that SoB players were delighted to hear that GW had eschewed giving them any new models (or even updating their range), in favour of making slightly bigger space marines.

I keep hearing that GW has turned over a new leaf, but as I look at Primaris Marines and see that the Codex release schedule currently consists of Marines, Spiky Marines, Shiny Marines, Sick Marines etc., I'm not seeing it. Neutral

It makes sense from a business perspective and no other. We have 3 Eldar factions + Corsairs. That's 3 armies that don't play together. What if we made a superfriends faction that combined them? Thus the Ynnari were born.

Yes.

While I don't have autism, few other subjects in this world can send me into a blind, screeching rage like the Ynnari can. Their lore is so incomprehensibly bad and universally involves destroying endeared and established lore of established factions, meanwhile they accumulate almost every single named hero of the Eldar and a good number of the Dark Eldar. Their faction power is ridiculously overpowered even in 8th edition, so much so it makes bringing anything else pointless. They were the ENTIRE triumvirate launch rather than just giving us 3 heroes for 3 different Eldar factions that already existed. The story in the Gathering Storm II was dry as dirt and poorly written even compared to actual fanfiction. The only positive thing I can say about them is their models are cool, which is why I've repurposed them.

Much like how the old Space Marines will be phased out for new Primaris Marines I get the feeling we're all gonna be forced into the gulch of Ynnari eventually.
