I think that riptide could be reangled and brought a tiny bit closer to even the base sizes. Then the wraith would lose just a bit of his comparative height. Also, Riptides could be modeled taller, especially flying, so the extra height isn't so bad.

Then again it could be a round base and be just around the same height.

The wraithknight would need to be tall,dont forget the eldar invented tall ass walkers ,the wraithlord is already quite tall so this thing will need to be bigger by atleast a third,i recon its about eight inch tall.

The rumours I've heard suggest that the new walker is 70 so lets hope its even bigger! Have to admit at that cost I won't be getting excited about the new releases, FW is becoming cheap in comparison!

Size wise I've heard just over 2 inches taller than a dreadknight

Hoping for plastic aspect warriors and jetbike warlocks and seers. no other army has most of its troops as finecast/ metal. (oh other than sisters but do they still count? )

I am really torn on that price tag, on one hand it breaks the 50 mark which psycologically drives people away from it, on the other hand it brings it in line with the baneblade in price so is plausible.

To justify the 70 the kit needs to be pretty damned big, the size comparison with the tau walker suggests it is big, but not +20 big.

If it is 70 then it is likely on the higher end of the guesses/comparisons, it is not going to be bought by everyone, and will therefore have quite a bit of wow factor in an army - not every one is going to have one.

If it is 50 it is likely going to be comparable to the tau one (a couple of inches taller), more comonplace in armies, and fielded in triplicate in my apocalypse army.

It wont be 70, it will be 50 same as the riptide,which i have to say is excessive for a two sprue kit in terms of whats in the box vs other boxes.The Flyer will be 40ish and as some lazy twat never bothered to snap the rest of the releases we dont know what the other releases are yet.

Yeah, I find it amusing that the camera was drawn to the new "toys" that were pretty much confirmed rather than the arguably more interesting "WTF are the aspects kits" question.

its just bad form, if your gonna take photos of the new releases and put them on line they should at lease have the common decency to take photos of anything that may have pointy ears !! Eldar generals like myself and bubble wait patiently for years for anything for our armies, least people who have WD already could do is give us something to cream ourselves with!

To be honest, just the thought that Eldar are less than a month away gave me a hard-on, the picture of the new walker required a change of underwear and having the WD at the end of the month might just do my balls in.

So am I the only one who is massively underwhelmed by the walker? It looks like ass to me. Completely disproportionate, not smooth at all, and no grace to it. All they had to do was scale down a Phantom and give more options.

90% of people think they are above average.

Statistically Improbable. Psychologically Inevitable.

yes, yes you are!

are you looking at the right model? the red one not the orange one, to be honest sethis, it looks alot like a scaled down phantom to me,its rocking some extra plates compared to its little buddy the wraithlord, but other than that its ticking pretty much all the eldar walker construct boxes for me!
