These look awesome! Are they likely to bring out a Jetbike Farseer? Any updates on what month of the year we're looking at?

The way they made Plastic kit it would be extremely easy to model Farseer on Jetbike. Probably they have that in mind.

rumour has it that the new stuff will be out mid summer, oh btw, here's your grain of salt to go with that rumour. while i will be pleasantly surprised and very excited to find out mid summer is true, the pessimist in me says more likely october or later.

@Evil, if i ever come across a bug eye boy in the stuff i constantly get, i'll make sure to send him to you for free, just to get rid of him. i hate that model, he doesn't match any other seer/warlock i have.

I'll comp you for postage! Razz It's more of a nostalgia thing than a love for the model itself. I remember how proud I was of the paint job that I did on my original, though I would probably cringe at the sight of it now...

Looking at the speed with which they have released the latest codexes I am almost inclined to believe the june release rumour. That would really be great!!

It looks like I'll finally get around to starting my Saim-Hann, then. Woo! The moment I make them play alongside my DE is the day that I'll let every member of TDC throw pebbles at me, though.

The plastic Farseer looks great, and even though I already converted one up from the Island of Blood high elf mage, I'll most likely pick this guy up as well! I really can't wait for more pictures, though... I have fingers crossed for plastic Wraithguard and Warp Spiders, perfect additions to my craftworld force.

Aren't they going to release High Elves before Eldar? If they are I'd be more inclined to believe the October release. April - Tau, miss a month or two, High Elves and then another month or two takes us up to somewhere between August and October.

High Elves are expected in May, Eldar rumoured to be in June. They're not skipping any month to do big releases lately, if you haven't noticed. Rolling Eyes

Quote :
via Stickmonkey from the Faeit 212 inbox
Stickmonkey here again, Fwiw, I reported this along time ago so im not sure how valid it still is.

Eldar were supposedly getting the following:

New tank chassis, 2 builds, between falcon and cobra in size, one build had transport capacity and some type of melta or flame based weapon (fusion cannon iirc) the other build was essentially a flakk cannon, but not the same as the fw firestorm, bigger tl guns.

There was a new avatar sculpt but im pretty sure that ended up being a designer test seen at GD

Wraithguard get a plastic box with new weapon variants. Lots of rumors of dial build, but nothing i've heard enough of to know what's true.

Heavy rumors of new jetbikes, building guardian and shining spears.

However, it seems to be a trend not to release too many rehash boxes. If we got wraithguard, jetbikes, and an avatar all in this release, well Ill be broke and need new shorts.

Rumors have pointed to a new farseer model, and thats all but confirmed by your recent post.

The bomber and fighter do not share a box from everything I've heard. The fighter is "very" similar to the nightwing, except for the wing shape. One of the two is rumored to use some form of distortion weapon, be it bomb or missiles i dont know.

Rumors of a new aspect exist, the word i've heard is this has something to do with wraith constructs, but really even that is too vague.

I know others have said there is a large wraith construct, but none of my sources are backing this now, fwiw.

For the release there are two new aspect exarch or p lord (not sure which) sculpts in finecast, and one named hq, these are all new scuplts, but could be old characters.

Ive been told guardians are getting a new box to make them and storm guardians. Again, i cant believe wed get so many redone plastics. But it makes sense on its own.

So to boil it down, from the new new dept could be 2 flyers, a dual build tank, a new large walker/mc, a few blisters, and a new aspect.

Then on top of that old models getting plastics.

Its just way too much for a release, so what will stick and what wont?

that sounds like the Warp Hunter, which is similar to Melta in that it's practically insta death to vehicles, and the Warp Hunter does have transport capacity just like a Falcon.

Quote :

everything i've read says yes we are getting a new avatar, however, what i've read are rumours and nothing specific. rumours also say it will be smaller than FW but larger than the metal/finecast version.

Quote :
Wraithguard get a plastic box with new weapon variants. Lots of rumors of dial build, but nothing i've heard enough of to know what's true.
rumour mill says CC options for these guys, basically making them the Eldar version of terminators. however, without some kind of invul save they won't do well against anything that has upgraded gear, meaning power/force or simliar items.

Quote :
Heavy rumors of new jetbikes, building guardian and shining spears.
i've heard the same thing over and over, i just have to keep reminding myself that these are rumours, especially since that jetbike picture came out before the Dark Eldar release, and is very similar to the new reavers.

Quote :
Rumors have pointed to a new farseer model, and thats all but confirmed by your recent post.
rumours i've heard not only point to a new farseer but also a new craftworld, not hard to believe since in Doom of Mymeara we got two new farseer characters, one a mymeara seer, the other a corsair seer, and the Mymeara craftworld. on top of that the rumours also say a new warlock w/ force staff, allthough the warlock could be the farseer, or vice versa.

Quote :

same deal, i've heard this over and over as well, with the exception that it will be a dual build box, not two seperate models. the first being titled a Lamia Strike Fighter, the second is titled Moon Siren Bomber. again this is just rumour, but what with GW releasing dual build ork flyers, and tau flyers not really that hard to picture. however on the opposite side of the coin is the dark eldar ravenwing as a single build instead of a dual ravenwing, voidstrike bomber build.

Quote :

yep we got these with Mymeara, they are called Shadow Spectres, anything past that i've not heard or read of it.

Quote :

this is a new one and only started circulating the rumour mills around the beginning of this year. it would be nice, but what with us getting the Wraithseer, i don't see it being very likely. i will however, dance a happy dance, if it's true.

Quote :
For the release there are two new aspect exarch or p lord (not sure which) sculpts in finecast, and one named hq, these are all new scuplts, but could be old characters.
all the exarchs are supposed to be new models. i've read in a just a couple of places of upgraded exarch rules, and new models for these upgrades, but i find this unlikely. new exarch models yes, new rules probably, a second set of new exarch models for upgrades, i say not.

Quote :
Ive been told guardians are getting a new box to make them and storm guardians. Again, i cant believe wed get so many redone plastics. But it makes sense on its own.
again everything i have read says yes to this, but again, i remind you that this is only rumours, nothing confirmed. however, i think it's quite likely to happen. another rumour that has been lightly circulated is that the box would also contain parts to build Corsairs, but haven't heard much on this at all.

missing from the above was the rumours for plastic warp spiders, and a webway gate model. also missing is the rumour of Nuadhu Fireheart coming back riding a new vyper model, which is supposed to be a dual build box enabling us to build Nuadhu on his vyper chariot, or build the new vyper variant. also there are rumours that Nuadhu will be listed as a Phoenix Lord, rumours also point away from Nuadhu as the Phoenix Lord and instead point to a completely new Phoenix Lord for a new Aspect. again i'm thinking Shadow Spectres since they've already introduced this to us in IA 11. remember, that these are rumours and while i have read of every single one of these for the most part, i can't confirm or deny any of them since i have no inside connection to GW. Not really sure i'd want one, cause then i'd be on the phone every night running up my long distance griping about how much love they give to space marines. anyways, make sure to keep salt in large quantities handy, at least until mid may, or later.

Synn, as you have mentioned many times these are just rumours. After the amount you said it along with the title of the thread anybody that believes otherwise is just a silly space-elf. Razz

lolol, well you know there are some people out there who believe anything, especially if you tell them it came from certain websites. i do have to say though that if everything written is true then i will be flat out broke, and a very happy player for quite some time.

not really, this is the same person that made CWE witchblades non power weapons, and dropped brightlance to str 8 from 9. actually, i don't think it was him i think it was GW in general that made him do it, so they could put a stop to the eldar killing space marines so easily. in any case, at least we made our Ward save, if we hadn't then the whole book would be trash, and it's only use would then be in the bathrooms of gaming stores world wide.

That was Gave Thorp when he wrote the 3rd edition Eldar Codex.

Brightlances have been S8 since 3rd edition, same with witch blades not being power weapons. Kelly wrote the 4th edition codex, which was a great book in 4th edtion.

Phil Kelly will almost certainly give us a balanced codex. The only OP codex that he has ever written is Space Wolves and I suspect that was more down to order from on high than any desire to do so. I just hope that it follows the current trend of 6e codexes with nothing too outrageous.

I must have missed the memo. Why do we hate Matt Ward again??

I am convinced Phil will make a good balanced codex. First on my wishlist is for the farseers powers to include all eldar types, and make him a trusted ally.

LMAO!! you actually have a good point there, we might get a paper cut on a 2+ requiring an invul save on 4+, which would be denied us, because Ward changed the invul save for rune armor to a 6+. Very Happy

are you sure, you might want to check that because in my blue cover codex, witchblades were power weapons and brightlances were str 9, in the 4th ed. codex is when those got changed. i do agree though that the rest of the codex was brilliant. and instead of spamming seer council i started spamming Banshees and fire dragons. I only put bright lances on my waveserpents, and pretty much stopped using Falcons as well.

I just checked, page 5 of the 3rd edition eldar codex, brightlances are listed as S8. Witch weapons aren't in the book but singer spears are and they were basically throwable witchblades and are not listed as power weapons. Witchblade rules were in the core rule book in 4th and they were not power weapons, and I'm pretty sure in 3rd ed core rule book they weren't listed as power weapons either (though I don't have my 3rd ed rule book to hand).
