Default Feeling Sorry For Dark Eldar Players

I have heard from a GW source that the Dark Eldar new codex won't be appearing anytime in the next year, but there are plans to update.

I march before a martryed world, an army for the fight
I speak of great heroic days of victory and might
I hold a banner drenched in blood
I urge you to be brave, I'll lead you to you destiny, I'll lead you to your grave
Your bones will build my palaces, your eyes will stud my crown
FOR I AM KHORNE THE GOD OF WAR AND I WILL CUT YOU DOWN

Up until now there rules where go if you where into uber armies but now 5th is coming out they will seriously need a re-write. I now of 4 Dark Edar players and all have uber armies with only 2 troop choices there stuffed now.

But the reason you don't see many Dark Eldar armies is that the minis are a tad dated now.

Dark Eldar are a fantastic army... the models just are terrible for the most part. The entire range, with maybe the exception of the Talos, needs to be redone. The artwork in the 5th Edition rulebook for them would be an excellent starting point for new models...

Yeah i heard the new release got put back too. But you know its a self perpetuating problem. Their models are crap so few buy them and so GW dont renew them because they arent popular enough. Its new SM's this year apparently.

A great tactician knows that victory is one part planning and nine parts faith

from what i hear Jes Goodwin is running the dark elf model project this time round and they are getting done right , but its a big job due to the amount of work and new models required .They are in safe hands and it will be worth the wait.

5th will make those AV 10 Vehicles a little more durable now, especially flyers. I can't wait to see what the New DE are going to look like.

Heh. I almost hope that they don't look as good as the artwork - I'd hate to have to start another army...
