So, they haven't told us what order they are releasing the rules? For example, I have just bought WD53 (rules for Troupe and Solitaire) and found no 'Enigmas of the Black Library' list, and no mention of when it, nor rules for transports etc, will be available.

Who's stupid, fucking idea was it to release fragments of information?

this should have been released as either a codex or one data slate.

They'll be releasing the dataslates with each units rules in the same WD as they release the models, which does make sense actually.

Now the order that they're releasing the models and rules, thats a whole different ball game. I cant see the point of referencing a rule, or in this case, options, in a publication when said publication is yet to be published.

Sorry, just to clarify
- when I said "one data slate" I meant one slate per unit
- when I said "fragments of information", I meant a non-ordered way with no forecast.

Bad wording on my part!

I wrote it in a rage than they have, in my eyes, messed up this release as far as the rules go :/

I haven't really kept up with the rumors and info about Harlequins rules. Is there going to be a codex, or is everything being released via White Dwarf?

Looks like we know why they were out of stock now. From BoLS:
Quote:
Ready, Steady, Go! The new Harlequin transport is here, along with TWO new character models as well as this week’s prices!

Problem is that this leak may raise more questions than it answers, because now it seems like were looking at a four week release window for the Harlequins IF we are indeed getting a codex out of this.

Revealed today are the new Starweaver transport, and the Shadowseer and Death Jester models!

The new characters appear to be plastic ‘multi-part’ models of the previous Finecast versions, as they appear more dynamic at first glance.

This new Starweaver looks to be a upgrade for the Dark Eldar Venom model, which along with the Harlequin crew could just be a sprue swap for the existing kit.
And from Natfka (via BoLS):
Quote:

So, the 'Starweaver' looks like a 'more Eldar, less dark' Venom. Almost the same as the conversions I did for my Corsair army! I'm sold.

Mixing in the odd viper in as a void weaver would help mix things up a bit, I think. They'd look pretty cool with a couple of harlies hanging out of them.
