Interestingly, the Harlequins have now got their own category in the GW webstore. Not so much that, but the Troupe is listed both in it AND the Eldar section, the Solitaire is only listed for Harlequins.

For those who don't like the Solitaire's face: it appears to be a separate part.

The diamond patterns do no appear to be molded on, so better get those brush tips sharp! There is also quite a bit of versatility in the Troupe kit, allowing plenty of variety between troupes, or between members of a larger troupe than 6. Please note the underlined sentence.
http://www.games-workshop.com/en-NL/Harlequin-Troupe-Troop

Quote :
This box contains everything you need to make a 6-man Harlequin Troupe armed with sword and shuriken pistol, including the option to include a Troupe Master. There are 6 sets of legs, all perched on outcrops of rock, with which to form the base of your miniatures. You have the choice of 7 different torso fronts and 5 torso backs, along with 3 extra backs sporting Harlequin jackets. You also get 6 swords of two distinct designs, 6 shuriken pistols, 6 harlequin’s kisses, 2 harlequin’s embraces, 2 harlequin’s caresses, 2 neuro disruptors and 2 fusion pistols. There is a power sword as well should you wish to upgrade your Troupe Master.

Alongside all of these weapon options there are 2 complete masked heads as well as a further 5 heads with space to add one of the 13 individually designed face masks. Also included are 6 weapons pouches.

There is a huge amount of variety for both posing and choosing weapons options and all of the components in this kit are fully interchangeable with the other Harlequin plastic kits.

This multi-part plastic kit contains 80 components with which to make a 6-man Harlequin Troupe. Also included are 6 x 25mm round bases and a Harlequins transfer sheet.

Hope you caught that. I'm happy that GW are repeating/keeping the flexibility the DE already had in their range of kits. It could also mean that the Starweaver comes with crew members to model on, or that other kits (Harlequin jetbikes?!) can use these arms and heads.

I have no idea how to use these next to my Coven army (WIP) or how to warrant it fluffwise. I don't play Eldar either. But gosh darn it, these models are SEXY!!

They don't even look very different than the old models. So if you didn't get the chance to buy those; no big loss.

I'm really happy GW decided for once to keep what was good about the old models instead of making the new version entirely different.

I was thinking of having Coven + Harlies (Carnival of pain and happiness), wwp-ing all the cc-harlies, but then I remembered that, as DSing units can't charge, the harlies won't survive the shooting.

Since the death jester and shadow seer are up on the new harlequin section maybe their models are staying the same.

I think I prefer the older ones slightly more, they seem better posed, look a bit more menacing, and somehow there's a bit more variation in the grunts' costumes.  But, maybe it's just the paint jobs on the newer ones, too.

Don't get me wrong, though, these new Harlequins are beautiful models.

Whatever, they have done a great job keeping the look and feel of them, and I am sure there will many interesting conversions and much bitz-swapping.

BTW, codex/supplement cover anyone?

Thanks. It switched itself for a smaller one when I first uploaded it. Setting it to a certain size in the post worked on the second try, but only for a moment it seems.

I am so looking forward to getting my hands on these.

I have the finecast set now plus a shadowseer. Unfortunately when I was building them I somehow lost one of the bodies. From the box description it sounds like it has extras so I'll end up with one that's half FC and half plastic. Smile.

Also looking forward to (hopefully) a "codex" for them purely from a fluff perspective. Killer clowns in space is just cool.

Speaking of the Shadowseer! And the Death Jester ...........

Even with this week's releases, I simply can't for next week's news already. A rulebook of some sort, a new transport of some sort, maybe a re-vamped Shadowseer and Death Jester, maybe (that's MAYBE) jetbikes!

What else will there be, when the dance continues?

If you look at the group pictures of the Harlequinns, it appears that 2nd' group shot has much more sinister looking facemasks

Holy Moses, they look awesome! I'm not crazy about the pose of the Troupe Master's arms and legs, but with how customizable they are, I expect that will be an easy fix.

The more I look at the Harlies, the more I try to devise a kitbash with the new Archon. Shame neither kit uses the ball & socket for the legs/torso join like most DE kits.

You're right. Maybe it's just because I barely gave the finecast ones a second look (you know, because finecast), but they seemed to have more of CWE aesthetic. Looking at them properly, both versions look as though they'll fit either army.

I agree with you as far as the Troupe Master is concerned; the new one looks like he's frolicking through a meadow (suppose he wouldn't be an elf otherwise), while the rest aren't all that dissimilar. As far as variation goes, the new kit comes with multiple fronts and backs, so that shouldn't be a concern.

Look at the codex art, its upper part.

There is a vehicles, slightly elongated venom platform. No underslung cannon, something akin to bright lance on top. Also looks like Vyper gunner cockpit.

I guess they will be anti-vehicles skimmers, to give harlies a stand-alone chance.

Looks like a Vyper.

Nope, side blades are more akin to Venom.

True. Like an elongated Venom with a Vyper gun emplacement.

Well, that definately answer the question about transport capacity. No more then 5.

Large troupes probably should include shadowseer. I really hope they will have WWP like transportation, to not rely too much on Dark Eldar help.

Sorry if this has already been answered, but is there a codex due to be released?
In WD there is no mention of the black library artefacts or the transport?
When is it to be expected?
Cheers

They look awesome and the rules sound great. If that vehicle is an assault vehicle there's no way these guys aren't going to be auto-include for me personally. Probably have a counts-as unit of them in addition to the real models themselves. I couldn't be more excited and I'm not even a very big Harlie fan.

They did this with the Dark Eldar codex too. I don't understand why they don't release the codex first.

Is there some reason why releasing models before releasing their rules is a good idea? I'm really excited about the new Harlequins, but this is just irritating.

I think the general belief is because if they release the rules first, people will see how bad certain units are and not buy them, so by holding off on the rules, people will buy the models based on looks. You know, because "GW are a model company, not a game company".

I don't think that this is it. The rules for them are often in white dwarfs anymore.
