Simply curious if anyone believes we will see new model/unit choices with the codex release. For all intent and purpose, GW began the year touting SMs and CSMs as the big releases for 8th edition and as such, received a few new models. I think everyone was excited at the possibility of new models/units for their armies at that point; obviously it hasn't really panned out for anyone aside from bringing models out of retirement.

I don't hold much faith that DE will receive new models with our codex release. The only circumstance that I think might provide an opportunity is if our codex is one of (if not the...) last codex released and it is followed with additional 'story progression' for the 40K universe as a whole.

Again, I imagine this doesn't have much of a chance of coming to fruition, but I do think GW is demonstrating that new models/units will only be released along with 40K story progression.

I WANT new models. I do not believe we will get them.

I'm betting on a "yes", at least some made-to-order old kit like the CWE Bonesinger this week. It seems to make business sense because GW sells these for the price of a new kit or more, but no design or sculpting is needed. So they are selling you pewter casts worth 5¢ for $15 and you are happy to buy because it's been so long and you are already ordering a codex. But I would be surprised if any of us have any realistic basis for our guesses.

Agree.
Might get some recasts.
And I still hold hope that we will get some plastics for the unit type models at some point (beasts) but to be honest I doubt it will be done within 1 year. The sculpts are to new.

Haha I'd love a vect super giant monolyth style miniature x)

But I don't think we'll get new, ours are way too recent.
Or maybe some old HQ ? (Keradruakh please :'))

Maybe a "made-to-order" Vect and some free rules? Probably the only old model GW thinks we'll buy.

Will we get new models in 8th? Yes
Will we get new models with the codex? No

Besides certain armies (only b.c they didnt have models before) no one is getting new models with codex's, they are 100% focus on getting the rules out, and right so.

After all codex's have landed i'm 100% sure they will release a new model or more for each army month by month.

The most I'm hoping for at the moment is some made-to-order re-releases alongside the Codex. There are a lot of older Dark Eldar character models that would be lovely to have available again, even if briefly.

We have that barbed hook from Rumor Engine. It'll most likely be a Sigmar thing, but it could be for us.

I think there might be, in 2018, some event for the rise of Ynnead and the death of Slaanesh. That event would be heavily Aeldar - Chaos focused, and could bring some new models (probably for Ynnari, but maybe for others) to the table.

There was this LARGE rumor for a bit that Slaanesh will be killed and the Rat god will take its place, in doing so Skavin will be a 40k race as another part of the rumor.

I want to note this was awhile ago and you might still find the rumors, but tey started b.c the Rat God symbol was found in place of the Slaanesh symbol on the chaos wheel with all the gods icons.

With the codex, not a chance in hell, the Grey Knights, Ad Mech Astra Militarum and Eldar codecies have all proved thats not going to happen.

From 2019 onwards when they start doing campaign books again, who knows.

I'm going to be a little controversial and say that I actually hope we don't get any new models.

Now, now put down those pitchforks. If I hope for anything it would be a new hq model or two, but Im rather concerned with the direction that the model designers at GW are taking. Looking at the new deathguard and the way have have done them I would rather not have anything new, than have things which follow the same trend as those models. The designs are unnecessarily busy, with lots of details and clutter being added simply because they can, not because it adds to the appearance of the figures.

We already have a great model line and I would honestly rather see GW add options to make our own unique and interesting HQs with different playstyles than give us a handful of named characters with some overly done rushed models. There are alot more armies which need the attention so I wouldn't expect anything for a couple of years anyway.

Not to mention that they're almost as monopose as Grotesques! You bring up a good point, part of the reason I like DE is that, for the most part, their models are gorgeous.

That said, I'd love for us to move away from Failcast, and, in my fantastical little dream world, have sprues of special weapons sold, just like the Space Marines get.

The sprues of special weapons would be amazing! ^ Just to get enough Blasters you need to buy several kits.

Indeed, GW is falling into the trap of making unique looking models, which is fine, until you have to have multiple copies of them in the army. Combine that with the monopose and suddenly the amazingly unique marine with a mouth in his chest is one of 4 identically "unique" marines with the same mouth in their chest.

I'd make a couple children and sacrifice them to the lesser god for that.

New and so far unseen models? No. And honestly, I don't see the need to.

What I see likely is similar to 7th edition where we get new plastic releases. We have enough models, they just need to be more valid. What I want more is a greater selection/number of special weapons in our kits.

Right, that's what I'd actually like to see.
Finger's crossed for Duke (he could make such an amazing model).

Wouldn't you rather see a move away from special HQs? Its a tad disappointing to me to see named characters popping up left and right in games, with the relics and warlord traits GW has a great chance to let people make their own characters and stories to suit their playstyle.

With GW not giving us rules for characters without models this might be a real chance to make our standard HQs feel like we can make them our own, its no real extra effort for GW, just take the rules for these special characters and put them on upgrades or relics so we can make our own.

New Craftworld box is containing special/heavy weapons sprue (and they say we can kit them on our DE/wyches HAHA (yeah IK they are talking about heads and stuff :p))

Might get some for DE *-*

That would be nice to get a heavy/special weapon sprue.

The weak links in the DE line (mono-posed grots, court, and beastpacks) leave many of us to creating counts as or conversions for cheaper or to have a more dynamic force. It would be really cool to see these released in plastic kits. Do I think it will happen? No probably not. I think right now GW is more about releasing new factions.

What we really need is our LoW released with our codex though. They teased us with a Coven lord of war last time and I know we would all be down for Vect to make his return.
