It would be great if we had effective/efficient HQs. Following the pattern of codex releases so far? I'm guessing either current characters get buffed or we get new ones.

As a long time DE player, expect nothing. Don't get your hopes up. The only new model we've had since 3rd ed', not including updates of models or FW, is the Voidraven Bomber and maybe you could count the Cronos. Although I would happily be proven wrong, if there's any time to get new models it is now.

I semi mentioned this in a previous thread but I believe that Orks, Tyranids, Dark Eldar and then finally Sisters will get new models, as well as the obvious adds to Marines...because they need more SPEHSS MAHREENS!

"Not including updates of models" is pretty unfair - the current Grotesques, Wracks, Talos and Mandrakes share almost nothing in common with the 3rd edition versions.

Also, we recently got a lovely model for Lady Malys. Shame it was using the name Yvraine for some reason.

But they're not new, that's the point. They're just updates. I wouldn't consider them new as they already had an existing model. I use old and new Talos', they're both the same unit entry.

Plus Yvraine is far from Malys.

Would you count the Succubus models considering that before we didn't have an Archite officially?

New models that aren't updates would be;
Razorwing Flocks
Clawed Fiends
Beastmaster (a gray area, but since it's now on a Hellboard it's a totally new deal then it used to be)
Grotesques (or Wracks depending how you want to count old Grotesques)
Razorwing Jetfighter
Voidraven Bomber
Venom
Succubus (depending on opinion to above question)
Tantalus and Reaper from FW if we wish to count them

We've also had our *entire* old line updated (except for Drazhar for...reasons) - something a lot of other armies would kill for.

I'd say we've doing pretty well in the grand scope of updates, not that I couldn't do with more Very Happy

If we get new Models/Units (not finecast to plastic but completely new) it would most likely be Vect and his Dias.

Honestly, I'd simply prefer more plastic models along with more and new wargear. Disintegrator Carbines, please make it happen Razz

Anyway, if there is a special character I'd want back, it's the Duke. Come on, his fluff is just the best thing ever and a good artist can just go all and be crazy with his design.

Want more HQs!!!
Bring "back" Baron, Duke and Lady please.
With own models and all that.
And Kheradruakh while you're at it.
That would make me happy but i wouldn't bet on it, even though the tremendous output of cool minis as of contemporary Death Guard makes me mildly optimistic.

I think we can pretty much expect one of 2 things.

A) we get a lot of new things like primarius marines/ death guard
B) we get few if any new sculpts (normal marines / imperial guard/ adeptus mechanicus)

We have a lot of good sculpts already, will likely not get many (if any) new unit entries: I think we will fall in catogory B
I would love it if we gained a extra plastic sculpts, but I doubt it.

You're all nitpicking. anyway, I'm simply saying we haven't seen anything NEW NEW, like the spesh mahrines. I didn't want to count FW because I can't even remember when those came out, gosh bring back that Raven fighter ;( Our sculpts are undeniably great. I'm just not one to get my hopes up... -_-

I don't think we should expect any new minis. Even if they did actually want to replace all the finecast...there is probably too much of it in our range to expect them to do it this year or next.

If you take Death Guard and Primaris out of the equation then there haven't been any new minis released with the new codex releases.

Although I'd like some of the new things mentioned in this thread I don't think we'll get any.
I expect a bolstering of Harlequin and Ynnari, however. Probably not even Harlequin. Ynnari might even give us some alternative stats to use with existing models, ala Corsairs.
We *might* get some resculpts released along with the book. I'd not even wager much, but if it came through I'd hope for Grotesques in a box, Kymera and Razorwings in box sets, and a Drazhar. That's the extent of my expectations with a dash of hopeful attitude.

You can add Sslyth, Lhamaeans, Medusae and Ur-Guls to the list of units that didn't exist in 3rd that got models, and though they've never had models Trueborn and Bloodbrides didn't exist in the 3rd ed dex (though you could take bodyguards).

I'd be happy with some new Trueborn models in ghostplate.

I'd really like to see grotesques, beasts, and the court get boxes simply because repeating the same models over and over kinda sucks. Though there are options for conversions for all of those.

New HQ minis would be sweet and maybe some sort of LoW that we all hoped for before the 7th ed codex came out.

I think some special characters would be interesting and I really hope we get some. I myself have never really used them much though, as I much prefer inventing and fleshing out my own characters. New models though would be great...always love new units!

Said it before, but... When we got the new arms crossed tip-toe plastic Archon, it would have been so easy to call him Duke Sliscus or Asdrubael Vect. We already had an awesome Archon model with some really useful weapon/head swap options. Not sure why that one went out of production.

It was finecast and they want to move the entire model range to plastic ... I'm not saying the model is awesome I preferred the look of the finecast ... But there you go ...

I mean... I suppose we could get dedicated Trueborn/Bloodbride models... (I currently use my old 3rd edition warriors/wyches for the job)
