Default Dark Eldar rumours!

FUCK the space wolves. DARK ELDAR are coming?
Adult content spotted on the horizon:
(from The Dark City)
"Dark Eldar Rumors!
The next Dark Eldar codex is due out in the second half of 2016 with several changes.
Raiders are *free* for anything that can take dedicated transports.
Venoms are not free but can disembark passengers after moving 12″.
Wyches sound *good* and fluffy – and they’re getting new models. They all get shred and hydra gauntlets cause blindness. They also have the innate ability to choose to wound off their choice of attributes rather than toughness. So they can pick initiative and wound Necrons on a 3+. That’s what Wyches do to slow people. Their Hecatrix rerolls *everything* in a challenge.
Combat drugs are on a 2D6 chart and are optional.
Darklight weapons (dark lances, blasters, blast pistols) all gain the blind special rule.
During night fighting all enemy units are treated as affected by the blind special rule and there are powers to make it dark on various rounds.
Whenever a Dark Eldar unit with the Power From Pain rule attacks an enemy unit that’s blinded, those attacks gain rending and instant death.
Power from Pain is no longer a turn chart. Instead there are different types of pain the army focuses on, during a given turn and the army fights differently based on what’s chosen. No more details other than that.
The Court of the Archon gets a second copy of the warlord’s warlord power. Additionally enemies do not achieve the Slay the Warlord objective until they’ve killed both the warlord and the Court.
Succubi are like what Lilith Hesperax is right now. Not exactly sure what that means.
Hellions can hit-and-run on their initiative step rather than at the end of the combat round. Shoot, assault, make CC attacks, and then bounce out of combat before the enemy can make their attacks.
Wracks are 2W and any character automatically passes LOS rolls if they have a Wrack with them."

In other words..yeah shure, have a nice codex...in your dreams! Salt.

If it'd said 'Black Heart Kabal Supplement' or 'Wych Supplement' - I could see it.

But this? No.

Well that sounds interesting, seems to be following the power curve back up with the new eldar and spacewolves rumours. Don't know how i feel about the idea of "free" transports that coud get nasty quick.

Da Golden Waaagh!

Isn't the plastic Wych kit somewhat new?

I'm going to have an infarction from all this salt.

What the Dark Eldar need is the old/new Archon model back, the one with a helmet, in plastic; plastic Incubi and Mandrakes, a TOTAL AND 100% COMPLETE RULE OVERHAUL for Mandrakes, and the heroes Duke Sliscus, Aurelia Malys, Baron Sathonyx and Kheradruahk restored with proper models.

Also a dedicated Trueborn kit with more than one of each special weapon would be very welcome.

A model of Vect might be cool - perhaps I'm thinking too far fetched tho

I always liked DE, almost started collecting them when they came out with Black Templars in that starter kit eons ago (4th edition?). Probably would have if I hadn't split the contents with a friend at the time! Nice to see something other than power armour getting some light....though as others have pointed out: buckets of salt.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

Pretty sure that these were covered on Signals from the Frontline a week or so ago and have since been admitted to as wishlisting - which is probably for the best, although Darklight weapons having Blind would actually be a really neat trick for DE.
