I'm hopping that some of them are either optional or that the one shown is badly posed, tbh it looks like it has been immensely badly posed (to show all the details rather than the models look) - the first time I saw the FW titans they looked kinda lame because of how static they were.

But until I get one in my hands I will not be sure.

Just thinking last time when eldar were redone the only new unit was the Autarch
(and technically harlequins as they were not in the 3rd ed book but were "around")
(most units other than tanks, guardians and bikes were re-sculpted though)

This time their gaining flyers, and knights confirmed (Guessing confirmation of the nightspinner, meh) and possibly others as well (fingers for plastic aspect)

The one thing I hope is that the knight is mobile it seems to have a weird vent in its lower chest so hope its some sort of jet. I'm not a fan of its hands they look really scrawny

Overall quite exciting, time to finally buy that red spray paint?
Think it may be time to finally tackle my mountain of unpainted eldar!

Shame about the lack of plastic in infantry and other goodies (Play saim-hann so wanted bike seers)

Not the complete redesign/ overhaul we were lead to believe. rather a bit like the recent HE and Tau lots. Guessing existing players should expect to pay about £180 to get every new kit and codex, now we just await price confirmation to count the damage

I just went floppy.

No plastic aspects, the one thing that every Eldar player wanted, seriously, they could have not made the walker and aspects instead and I am sure most people would have been more happy.

Wraithguard in plastic is superb confirmation.

Lack of news on jetbikes is quite concerning, it sounds like we might get everything we never wished for.

I am glad that I had pretty much made the decision to move to a wraith army with the new release, I am now considering canning the Saim Hann completely and paint up in some random other colours.

They have to release new jetbikes, for the love of jeebus, please release new jetbikes.

Also, anyone else worried about the avenger repack losing half the squad? Hopefully not indicative or q FoC shift to elites for them

not sure what to make of it at the moment, wait till we get more pictures and confirmation, flyer was a given, huge gribbly was a given too, plastic wraithguard is a huge bonus for alot of players who simply couldnt afford them previously, but that still feels one plastic unit light for a relase so it could be the bikes in a three pack and new, either way i never fancied the chances of seeing plastic aspects, far too specialist to combine in my opinon and too few in number and no real weapon options makes them finecast for the moment, but we could still see them in the future.

It does say 'wave' release... soo it could be that new aspect models etc are coming later.

Also... we don't know if the Dire Avengers are just a repack or a new sprue yet until we see some more pictures.

Seriously though, if that's it, theres gonna be some very pissed off elder fans.
