The sword-pegleg is utterly stupid. It is also Warhammer as all get out. Stupid is the oil that makes things move in Warhammer.

flying sky chariot of doom is silly-awesome.

monowheel hover chariot is silly-awesome

swordpegleg is silly.



One thing I failed to mention, the old Execs have those pain in the ass swords, so that's a plus for the new ones I guess.

they still suck. and are over priced.
I don't care about the rules.

The new dark riders will look good on the wood elf horses.
There are 40 different shades of black, so many fortresses and ways to attack.

So why you complaining!

Maybe we could model a pineapple stuck on the swordpegleg? That would be cool.

Those horses... For Crying out loud the dark rider horses are supposed to be stolen from the Ellyrians or breed from former Ellyrian steeds. Those look like they are spawns of chaos.

Black Guard looks okay. That is true. The Corsairs are sweet, but they came from a better age, like the Cold one Knights.

The squid decals are ace and will fit with my cothique army.
Oh, and remember GW made it personal, not you!

Whats the deal with the naked half snake woman?  Since when do GW have exposed breasts on models?  I thought that was done away with when the metal daemonettes were canned?

It isn't that old.  We are talking the one on the Pegasus right?  That's probably from around the same time as the Daemonettes. 
PS. those were the best Slannesh models GW ever produces, and not just for the breasts.
Actually, forget Karl-Franz. I want rules for Thyrus Gorman on a dragon. - Rufus Sparkfire

Yes they were Clarkarias.   They are quite a few years old now though, probably a decade or so!  The new ones are 3-4 years old.

I wasn't aware you still posted here!

Strange miniature release from GW.  I do like that they are willing to re-do old plastic kits though, that's pretty rare.

The Mardi Gras float isn't really any stranger/sillier than Empire's Wizard wagons to me.

But not unheard of - Empire core infantry comes to mind. On second thought, it also comes to mind as an example that this isn't always a good thing. It was in that case though - the new DE warriors look much better than their older counterparts. Still disappointed with the release as a whole though.

The VC redid the skeletons, which are ace. Probably my favourite fantasy kit. Got 8 boxes or so of those when I saw them. 40k we just had the Tactical Squad redone when the old one was perfectly fine, if a little weak technically (terrible mould lines). Skaven got redone. Moving toward redoing basic kits is a good thing.

For the most part, it certainly is! The Skaven are also a good example of reasonably priced infantry. Compare Clan Rats, or hell, even Stormvermin to those new Witch Elves.

Ebay certainly helps with Skaven!

20 man boxes are good though!

Yeah. 20 rats, 20 pounds, and I've paid as low as 17,50 or so at some online shops. That's OK! 30 for 20 Stormvermin is also all right. The models are very nice, and there's a  ton of stuff on the sprues. 35 pounds for 10 witch elves? Not... quite so good. In fact, I'd go as far as calling it "slightly unreasonable".

It's not unreasonable at all, you're just too poor, stupid, and whiny to accept the true cost of 10 high quality plastic miniatures. After all, no one's forcing you to buy them, you whiner. GW is a strong and independent company, and can charge you what it likes for the world's best miniatures. If you don't like it, you can go back to Whine Island, Captain Whinge.

I wouldn't have an issue with the witch elf prices, but the models are dog ugly.

No, Krokz picture is a scan from the Army Book. They are streamlining in anticipation of 8th.

well played.



If this stuff is true Dark Elves will remain top tier in tournaments.....

Sisters of Slaughter: WS 6, I 6, A 2 and a 4++ ward.


via Jossy on Druchii.net
Black Guard are ItP, ASF, Eternal hatred, Stubbord, Murderess prowess
Stats are 5, 5, 4, 3, 3, 1, 6, 2, 9

War Hydra is 180 points including fiery roar. Interesting the WD description talks about a lashing tail and poisoned tipped claws (possible upgrades IMO). The WD describes the War Hydra being able to regain wounds during the game, and then goes on to say its like an improved regeneration rule.

Dreadspears are 9ppm with Shield and spear, whilst rptxbows are 12ppm.

All Dark Elves all have ASF, Hatred (High Elves), and murderess prowess special rules

Witchelves also have Frenzy, and Poisoned attacks ontop of ASF, Hatred (HE) and MP.
The frenzy is increased to +2 attacks with the CoB apparently (unconfirmed)

The CoB also magnifies murderous prowess - reroll all failed to wound rolls instead of just 1's

A High Beastlord has the ability to boost nearby monster units. Unsure of how. Presumably you can still get a beastlord hero as the High beastlord is a lord option.

The Medusa can be taken on a mount (bloodwrack throne) or on foot (er tail)
On foot it is 90ppm and is selected from the rare option, has some sort of shooting attack with kb

I am surprised and happy to see the return of points values in WD battle reports :mrgreen:

Edit: Hellbron is included in the CoB model. Yes Plastic Hellbron, alongside a Bloodwrack Medussa, and a Hag...

I forgot to add, I've had confirmation that Black Guard are on stock run down. That means only one thing...


The WD also supports this as it mentions several times the "total redesign" of the Dark Elves, with only the CoK and Corsairs being 'sacred'


More via Druchii.net
The Hydra btw lost its Regeneration. Has the ability to get Lifepoints back. It has d3 attacks + 1 attack for each lifepoint and will cost 160 points. (Without breath)

cauldron of blood will have a +5 Ward for the Unit its placed inside. It also gives Frenzy (Rage or what ever it is in english) if the Unit already has it, they will get 2 attackes instead of one.
It also gives something in a range of 6" around the CoB. But forgot what it is sorry.

The Medusa will have an ability to force Initative tests with models in base contact. And it has Killing blow as a Range attack. I think it was 3 Attacks.
