The fighter concept of the pic above is good but I hope it will look much more sleek. It looks much to human, as I think it is cause it looks like a prototype presented years ago by Nothrope I believe.

Good to be green

BOLS have posted some weapon stats

Word has reached us of two divergent schools of though for the latest codex shuriken family, and the jury is still out on which one was ultimately selected. Both are highly divergent from the short-ranged 12" S:4 AP:5 Assault 2 weapon we have now (oh those poor, poor Guardians). Here we go folks:

OPTION A: The Bane of Flesh

Shuriken Pistol 12" S:4 AP5 Pistol, Fleshbane
Shuriken Catapult 18" S:4 AP5 Assault 2, Fleshbane
Dire Avenger Shuriken Catapult 24" S:4 AP:5 Assault 2, Fleshbane
Shuriken Cannon 24" S:6 AP:5 Assault 3, Fleshbane
Shuriken Shreiker Cannon 24" S:6 AP:5 Assault 3, Fleshbane, Poison(4+), Pinning

OPTION B: The Rain of Shuriken

Shuriken Pistol 12" S:4 AP5 Pistol
Shuriken Catapult 18" S:4 AP5 Salvo2/4
Dire Avenger Shuriken Catapult 24" S:4 AP:5 Salvo 2/4
Shuriken Cannon 24" S:6 AP:5 Salvo 3/6
Shuriken Shreiker Cannon 24" S:6 AP:5 Salvo 3/6, Poison(4+), Pinning

I saw this earlier and immediately assumed it was bull and wishlisting...

Fleshbane automatically wounds on a roll of 2+. Having that on a standard sidearm is stupidly OP. The same goes for salvo... pretty much double the number of shots to any other standard armament? OP again...

True, makes Dark Eldar weapons seem shit. I doubt we will see much fleshbane but the rumour mill has been pretty dry for about a week now.

Pre-orders go up on Sat next week so we should see allot of rumours coming out this week.

The second one would make up for the fact that dire avengers and guardian's have no special weapons like plasma or melta guns. But I still feel it would be over powered

Well it seems they have moved the Fleshbane to Shred. In many ways, I like that much more. If the range increases are in, then I'm set to be a proud Eldar player. I just am gonna feel bad about investing in even more...

What really is worrying me is that many things will probably get cheaper, and that'll put a damper in my 40k pts. dream.

Shread on shuriken weapons sounds great both fluff- and gamewise. Do not know about the range change though, maybe if the shread only was within half range or something.

Shred sounds more plausible, and it fits the fluff too. Just wish we were getitng some more solid rumours lately.

Naftka posted a video saying he would be up and running within a month. So he most likely will not be making the Eldar release in 3 weeks sadly.
