And the Lhamaen will be my new Malys for sure.

Luckily for us, they will be in blisters where we could see them before we buy them. If they are all in one boxed set, then we got something to worry about.

Still can't get over the fact that the court has those limits. How cool would it be to load up an Archon and 9 Sslyth in a Raider?!

And -what a suprise- will be looking to convert Lhamaean to Lady Malys. But I still hope GW brings out a model.

Hhmm... Else for the time being I'll just buy and paint a Lhamaean as is and have her count as Malys untill I'm sure there will be no model.

I was sort of on the fence about the other two, they were cool and fluffy but the Sslyth especially presented too big of a conversion challenge but now with these two new awesome things coming out I'll probably get one of each for the smallest court allowed.

Yes they're fluffy and the Lhamaean really isn't that useful but fluff is one of the reasons DE are worth playing in my opinion.

Even if I only use them in fun games or if they only sit next to my Archon model and look pretty (And spikey) they still add a nice touch of flavor.

Oh, and I would also like an updated Drazhar model for the same reasoning above. Anything else is just extra win for us as players.

What do people think of the possibility of a SC or two arriving with the Voidraven?

Gamesworkshop wins my wallet! I love both of them, especially the poisioner. I wasn't going to use a court in my army but now I think I'll just try to squeeze in another 80 odd points in somewhere so I can fit them in. If not then I will just buy them anyway for display.

Oops must of missed this post. I'd say Lady Malys is a definate, mainly because the line currently lacks a model for a Djin Blade so she would fill that gap. (her blade basically is one) Also, concept art for Drazhar's blades were shown at Gamesday Chicago so I'm betting a model for him is in the pipeline.

While everything up to the Voidraven has essentially been confirmed for months, I haven't heard a squeak on anything more. I'd be flabbergasted if they can resist releasing Vect, I think the last time the "big boss" wasn't released was Logan Grimnar in the 2e space wolf codex.

Ohhh, I shall be buying the Sslyth and Lhamaean. I do hope the Sslyth is poseable, I want the maximum three for my Court. PROPER bodyguards!

And it would be nice if we could get Voidravens too, that'll complete my birthday wishlist!

I agree and would be surprised if they didn't release some kind of teaser model, whether it's the big man himself or not.

Darn you GW why must you always make me want to make an excuse to buy something and fit it in a list somewhere!

About a month ago I had given up on having a court but now I'm hooked. Same thing for the Voidraven! I didn't want to buy a razorwing (even though I was soo soo tempted) and just say it's a bomber, but now I have no reason not to want!

And when I want something I'll find a way to fit it in my theme/fluff/army whatever will make it work!

I've heard something about some sort of calamity during the work on the Voidraven, or something like that, so they needed more time to finish it. Not sure if it's true though.

Anything about release date? The new ogres are up for AO now, so I would guess we'll see the Court guys in just a few weeks.

Well, the sslyth and the lhamaean are up for preorder now, and I grabbed two of the laydees and three of the snake boys. Court of nine coming up. Let's hope the gods of failcast treat me right this time, as well.

Well, not as lucky as last time. The Lhamaean is all in one piece, and being a rather slim kind of lady, she's very prone to getting bent into a million directions. The dagger through the hair is a nightmare, All of them are pointing in some random direction or half-formed. (I got one of the half-formeds, which I actually don't mind since I'm going to have to do everything already to differentiate these two monopose girls).

The Sslyth is on two sprues, and even the body is in multiple parts. Haven't gone through them yet. I'd guess these are going to be a lot more problematic than the medusa and the ur-ghul.

Also official, I'm not going buy any more finecast models, unless they release a Vect or something absolutely mind-blowing when the Hobbit range hits. Too much hassle, and I always get some whiney redshirt.

Oh god, multiple part fin@ca$t models , the horror, the horror.

your chances of getting a completely intact model just got divided by however many parts there are .... and the pointy bone through her her should be sharp and clean and stiff enough to paint , whats the betting If I try and buy one its going to look like she has a horrifically over-boiled carrot in her hair ?

Ha ha ha. Wow...

You know, those multipart FC models convince me that plastic court would be waaaaay better, for us AND GW.
Ok, let it cost as much as SoM casters (still cheaper than FC), I don't care.
Same with Incubi and some "spiky" characters like Lelith, Chaos-Boyz etc. Resin have few flaws that plastic don't have. Not like I hate resin (In fact, I LOVE it), but when they use it WRONG...

Got one each of the Ssyth and Medusae yesterday and assembled both. Luckily the Medusae had not one flaw on her and is a beautiful model.

The Ssyth I had some trouble with; the butt end of the Carbine was off, few flash in the knuckles. All in all pretty good. Unfortunatly, he also came with a 25mm base. I called GW to clarify and they said that the first batch of Ssylth were misspackeged with 25mm base instead of 40mm base. They are mailing me some bases, but warning others not to just try and make the Ssylth fit on the smaller one.

With converting the Ssylth the only thing I really am upset about is that there isn't a 2nd head option with it. Moving the arms around is easy enough and you can always use left over splinter pistols / close combat arms on the Ssylth to make him look a little different. I'm thinking of using the weighted flail from the Wyches when I get my 2nd.

so the sslyth belong on the same base as the grotesques then? thanks for the info i just got my sslyth today and thought the 25mm was a bit odd.

Ahh well, both my Sslyth have found their way onto 25mm bases and don't look too bad. Just got to hope it doesn't cause too many problems gaming (who am I kidding, like I'll get a game with them Razz).

Just bought the entire court (my wallet feels like it's a guest at Hotel Urien), this is my first encounter with Finecast and it's not too bad. Had some tidying up to do on one Sslyth, but he's still a bit "fuzzy" in some places but I'm not gonna be able to fix it and it's not too bad. Lhamaean's sword is a bit bendy but again not too bad. Apart from that everything else was perfect. 4/5, not a bad score (if you don't count the 25mm bases).

I'm a recent DE convert after seeing the beautiful models and reading the fluff. The way they fleshed out the nature of the Dark Eldar was really a good separation on the way most of the GW lore is.

I would love a dedicated Voidraven but am not sure if I should just get some Razorwings in the mean time. They seem to have a role, but it's the bomber that really appeals to me.

I was 0 for 2 with the early runs of finecast. one was a box of sterguard, the other was a Leilith model that almost caused me not to collect DE it was so bad. Last week my friend picked me up a Heami and an Archon model that I must admit was cast very well. No excuse for pumping out garbage to us for the first wave, most of those models should never had made it to the shelves.

The new court models look very nice and will probably get them all just to put on my shelves even if they don't always make it to the table.
