From Stickmonkey at Warseer. Very, very early days yet, but there's a lot of info here so something must be happening. Plus there's been all the recent Eldar action from FW, and there's IA 12 in the pipeline. And it's the day before GDUK, ....... hmmm.

Outstanding news in its own right, but I also wonder what might trickle down to the evil cousins as well?

Pray that it's Kelly/Goodwin again.

Little spider passed along a few rumors.

Eldar mid to late 2012. Possibly 1st or 2nd official 6 ed codex

Guardians being redone. Will include new weapons platform and storm guardian bits.

Avatar getting new fine cast version with weapon options (spear/sword) not as big as FW model, but larger than current.

Lots of new mech options. Jump pack/jet options for walkers similar to new FW models, but unclear if this is new model or upgrade to current model. Upgrade packs don't seem likely, and current model is decent, so I have my doubts about this rumor completely.

New tank options...built on wave serpent/falcon chassis still. Hydra like flak turret, Bonuses against flyers and skimmers. Dcannon tank. And some pulse cannon monster tank...scorpion?

New jet bikes and vypers.

New warlock sculpts.

New aspect sculpts, aspects still likely fine cast.

Some sort of shimmershield device. Portable cover save for a unit, but static once deployed...model in design for it. Sounds fishy to me? But the de have the portal...who knows, I say unlikely.

From obvious dept comes the nightwing and some form of bomber. Neither look at all like de ships, or existing FW. Definitely eldar.

Drop pod of some sort that can carry 20 troops, 10 wraith guard, or 1 wraith lord. Deploys as firebase that has higher cover rating for guardians. Sounds like a bastion that drops into play with a weapons platform attached. Not sure I buy into this rumor completely, it seems too complex the way it's been described. And I never saw any evidence of this in design before.

Cheers. Still super long off, though. Have your salt handy.

flack tank and d-cannon tank sound like firestorm and warp hunter. They may just include rules in codex for fw model, like the IG hydra. Jet pack option for walker could be same way. Looking forward to more plastic eldar flyers, if rumour is true it will allow eldar/dark eldar flyer kitbash converions. Long rumoured plastic scorpion would be awesome, more likely a mini-scorpion with 2 pulse lasers on falcon chassis.

Hopefully harlies get a point drop, and they FAQ ours Razz

But its good to see the other pointy ears maybe getting something down the pipeline, although I think there are two other dex's that need it more (other than Crons, which is suppose to be soon)

yea, harlies update would be nice, they should have venom option in both codexes (shuiken cannon instead of splinter?) since it was there vehicle originally. Maybe rules buff instead of points drop, since they are elite and rare.
