On sale February 14th, "Harlequin Masques" are for sale along with harlequin heraldry. Sounds like the codex is for sale on that day, and the painting guide as well. Harlequin Masques are what the army is referred to.

24 for two, so 12 quid per bike? Its not as bad as I thought it would be. I was expecting at least 15, possibly 16.

Still I suppose GW make enough money off the Solitaire and other charcter models. I mean, 16 for one guy?

As someone who has a large variety of harlies, there are many ways of doing them. Follow the link in my sig to see a bunch of different ones, but like Bits said the Black and White "Mime" look works really well, like so:


and, I did my bikes up in solid contrasting colors like this:



As for the unit themselves.../drool. I am buying at least a box or two of these and then I think i will re-base my existing clown face bikes on two bikes to a stand which will each represent another "starweaver".

Since it appears they are returning to the old Harlie-dex style, the Death Jesters are most likely going to be a stand alone Heavy Support unit. They are going to have a dedicated transport as well for fast unit delivery. This is the same basic army they were rocking during third edition and it worked well then (even though a bit limited in scope). Combine those with the solid characters and the existing models we have already seen and I think Harlequins will be just fine as a stand alone army (also throw in the possibility of mimes since they have been doing some throwback units).

the current shadowseer reads as no longer available, any word on whether we'll be getting a new one? Also anyone who played harlies back in the day, did deathjesters come in units of multiple models or were they units of one?

As far as I remember there was a DJ with a shuriken cannon in the old box, and you could buy an alternative shuriken cannon or missile launcher in blisters, because they were a one man unit.

In 2ed and the 3ed codexes you would buy Death Jesters as a "unit", but each DJ was then an independent character who would act separately. I don't think that is quite how they will work now, but to bring that method forward I could easily see them being bought and played in the same manner as a Warlock Council.

This is probably a stupid question, but....

Where will I be able to get the rules for these new Harlies? Nothing on the GW site indicates that 'rules for fielding these units are here'.

I very nearly pre-ordered the Masque of Vyle assuming it had the rules in it! :/

Currently you can get them out of last week and this week's White Dwarf, and I believe the new boxes have been coming with the rules as well...can't confirm that until I pick mine up tomorrow.

Wow that's cheap for two bikes of that detail and size!

And, is there a new codex for these coming out? I'm not sure if I am reading the rumors right but it sounds like there is....? Ala Militarum Tempestus.
