Default New Juicy Dark Eldar Rumour

I just popped into my local GW to ask for a few painting tips. While chatting about a few things (Planet Strike sounds awesome!) we got onto the the subject of Harlequins and the missing Solitair. Apparently they will be making a return (about bloody time in my opinion!) but now they will appear in the new Codex Dark Eldar.
Another thing he said was that "Dark Eldar And Eldar will become more closely tied" and that "the Solitair will become the bridge between the two armies."

Now this could all just be speculation, he may well know no more than anyone else, but there was a definate look of 'oops, I've said more than I should have' on his face straight after he said it.

Sounds sick

Maybe if you take a solitaire you can mix and match the armies a bit.

Archon with shadow field and a farseer backing him up with reroll armour saves.

Fluff-wise, the two don't honestly seem to be at odds with each other the way, say, SM and CSM are (or SM and just about everyone else, I suppose...). The current Eldar codex also talks about Harlies performing for the DE as well.

I'm guessing this means Eldar will be due to get a revamped Codex (and more plastic please?) sometime after DE. There are facets of the current Codex that could use a tweek, to be certain.

Sorry to put a dampener on this,
whilst harlequins will make a re-appearance in the future, they are not part of the upcoming DE codex or model range

All a bit of a waiting game with Dark Eldar. They seem so close, yet so far. The date has been pushed back and back for their release, models have been shown then scrapped, Jes has finished then he hasn't. I don't think anything is concrete aside from Jes doing the models.

@ Bindi Baji

...As far as you know...

Yeah, you're probably right, but I'm still gonna have my DE & harlequin fantasy, ok?

And thats cast in stone is it?

As I said in the OP, it could well be just speculation, but it would also make a lot of sense.
DE are not big sellers, no Dex in years, crap minis etc.
Tying them in with the Eldar could be a stroke of genius on GW's part, keeping them viable as an army and breating some new life into them.

And Harlequins don't need to make a re-appearance, they're already back, it's just the solitairs that are missing, and lets face it they are an ideal addition to a DA army.

I for one would count out any chance of being able to "blend" a Eldat and DE army. GW doesn't like cross codex armies anymore.

Personally I don't understand why they would put the same harlequins in 2 different books. I mean if they add a new harlequin for the DE then cool.

Just my 2 cents, either way I have no real invested interest in DE other than 2 see them FINALLY get a makeover.

Wont happen.

Eldar hate Dark Eldar and Dark eldar hate Eldar. They don't mix and patch and they don't work together. This is not the guard.

I have bin watching and talking to a few people about DE and there is nothing new about them and there wont be for some time.

Eyes with out life.
Maggot ridden corpses.
Mountains of skulls.
These are some of my favorite things.

Awesome. . .

"Playing Warhammer is just like making love. It's usually done on a table and afterwards you always feel great shame. Plus like most fun things the older you get the less fun it becomes. So remember, always wear a condom while playing Warhammer - I've got mine on now."
