Was expecting that, remember even titan pilots are part of an aspect

None of the "alternatives" to hammernators are as good, look at mutilators and lychguard.

As long as most units get a points reduction I think it will be ok, Eldar have enoungh units, they were just overcosted considering how specialised they are

Just thought i'd pipe up for the first time, but, do you think this rather modest release note ties in with the rumour that GW are struggling with production of all the new toys for Eldar which will see them pushed back? So we could be seeing a double release through the month?

Failing that, I guess it's a case of waiting for WD to drop or more leaked photos of the new release pages, or waiting the extra week for the Codex to fall into hands and see what appears in the model showcase?

To me, it seems that the list posted earlier is focussing on the brand new stuff, with the exception of the DA and BF. So maybe we get the new toys first, then the updates of the older toys later?

the release is no different in terms of amounts of stuff as any release since the necrons, generally its 3 or 4 plastic kits, plastic blister character, few fine cast models, some repackages, codex,limited edition codex,psycic cards,battalion box rejigged to remove some of the value while bumping the price. Also the production run for this lot was done 6 months ago according to a birdy, problem really stems from people dropping rumours based on wish lists and people taking them as gospel or at the least praying they are true,eldar may need some new regular stuff doing in plastic,but they are not a great seller,never have been, they are perceived as a hard army to use.

what i posted is allegedly the list of stuff given to a indie retailer, so it could be total hokum,but until we have a WD to refer to its the best we have at the moment.

I am far more interested in the codex than the new models myself. My Harlie army is competitive, but there are some definite tweaks and changes the Eldar dex needs to modernize it. The Wraithknight is a nice looking model and I am already contemplating ways to harlify it, but with my limited budget it is not on my radar anytime soon.

That said, I was hoping for a Harlequin character model (since that would indicate some FoC change), but never held out too much hope for that. The lack of a multi-bike box is a bit surprising and no guardian/storm guardian combo box is also interesting.

If they are doing a wave style release, then the Codex supplement provides some hints to their plans. The models in this release match the CW that is in the supplement. Perhaps if they do other supplements they will be combined with an appropriate model release.

Servants of the Laughing God (Harlequin Themed Eldar Army)
First Eastern Mirage Corps (C:SM)
I am the Evil Project Log (All my work since restarting the hobby)
The Crusade of Morr (WFB Empire Battle Reports)
Dem Bones (Dice Rolling Program)
