Default New Eldar and guard tanks incoming

with spearhead been announched the eldar and guard will be getting some new goodies.

So for guard they will be getting a dual kit that makes the deathstrike, and medusa?[im not a guard player so not 100% on the names]

The eldar will also be getting 2 tanks, the fire prism redone fully in plastic, and the Nightspinner.

Awesomeness

EDIT* also coming out will be the support weapons in plastic with all the variants

When i want your opinion I'll give it to you.

Now that is a somewhat unpleasant attitude to take, and have you got any proof to this? or are we just taking it because you said so?

Nightspinner? Ooh, s6 ap- artillery on a tank! Go team! Does GW not understand what makes something playable? They better not use that as an excuse to put a Nightspinner in the new codex instead of something kickass.

The plastic FP... eh, well, we knew we weren't going to get anything that was particularly playable new, right? And the things were stupidly top-heavy. Metal prisms lets me strip off the paint with no effort as many times as I want, but, eh....

I do hope its not just a nightspinner and plastic prism that would be the lamest upgrade Eldar could get - the most useless tank around and a plastic kit for a model anyone who wanted to own already got theirs, might as well make some nice new guardian resculpts while they are at it.

Too_hot_to_handle how sure are you and whats your source?

Maybe they'll feel nice and also give us all new artillery!


I mean, seriously... the nighspinner? WTF? It's not even good at what it does. And it does something that's less than "OMFG we need it nao!"

Couldn't we have gotten something with a Pulsar? The IG get freaking Baneblades and all we get is a bunch of ap- templates.

I would like to know the source of this, if it were true then I'd have no money haha. Sweet releases although I was hoping for the other varients for a tank based expansion.

well considering no source was cited, I'm going to assume this is pure speculation and not take it seriously in the least (no offense too_hot_to_handle).

Also as someone else has already stated why would they release a Nightspinner and yet the vehicle isn't covered in the Codex. I highly doubt they are about to release another Eldar codex considering how recent they released the latest one, I doubt they'll put the rules for the Nightspinner in WD because then they'll have to make a pdf about it online and that just adds to more crap you have to download and lug around with you (and for one tank, one tank that unless the rules are better than what we have percieved won't even make it worth it).

I doubt any of this.
