You cant honestly expect anything new until Games Day, they might release a teaser poster or something like that but I doubt they would show an actual model until monday they 27th.

On another note, here is something to laugh at while waiting :D

no, but if anyone wants to prove how cool they are by describing some of the miniatures that will be previewed at GD, i'm sure we'd all be grateful.

I won't even say "new codex", just models. Heck, it might even just be a book of some sort. I'm not falling for their tricks!

It's quite obvious - the Dark Eldar first cuts the eldar, then the bartender, then the poor drunk SOB sitting alone at the end of the bar, then the cougar eyeing up the frat boys playing pool in the back, then the frat boys, and finally when there's no one left to cut - he sighs & cuts himself...

Heck even I can do that

The new models look really awesome, they have allot more spikey bits, new weapons that look more evilish, hooks and torture cc weapons.
They have been completely redesigned and when you see them you will get a nerdgasm!

You will just have to wait for the first pics from games day, its going to be epic :D

No, I havent seen them but its the thought that counts

One thing I would be interested in finding out is, provided that Wyches are being redone already, whether they are still co-ed. I gather from here and there that the current Wych models are sufficiently unpopular that some people use fantasy Witch Elves instead, and as I play fantasy DE, if the minis were right for the job I'd consider reversing that.

Dakka just posted a nice summary.

Dates
Release in November (confirmed by GW). Preorder on 13th October.
First official presentation by Jes Goodwin on GD UK (26th September), models also on display at GD Germany (17th October).

First Wave Minis
Codex (written by Phil Kelly)
3 metal blisters
3 metal boxes
6 plastic boxes
1 Special item.

5 of the 6 plastic boxes are, as confirmed by Harry:
Warriors (male and female, no top knots )
Wyches (male and female, include at least one head with a blank faceplate like the Shadowseer)
Raider (including warriors hanging from its side, modelled by Aly Morrison)
Ravager/Slaughterer (! new variant)
Hellions
Strongly expected to be the 6th box is the Reaver jetbike.

Metal Boxes seem to be Mandrakes, Incubi and maybe Talos (can also be plastic or later).

Metal Blisters may be new character, Archon and Wych Lord.

There will be a 1.5 and 2nd wave next year, maybe including a battleforce, maybe not. Avian heard a long time ago that these will be January and March, but this seems unlikely now.

Most miniatures done by Jes Goodwin over the last few years, but Juan Diaz, Seb Perbett and Aly Morrison also made a few. Aly Morrison made the warriors hanging from the Raider.

Rules
Harlequins are in, Avatar not so much.
Talos will be bigger and have more variants, so probably will be a later plastic kit (<- rumour by Frgt/10 ).

Umm.... is it just me, or did the announcement only talk about new models for the Dark Eldar? I just have this horrible premonition that they're going to re-do the whole range, and sit on the codex for another year or so.

Some may say that that's unlikely, and that I'm being unnecessarily pessimistic. To those people I say, "You haven't been dealing with Games Workshop long, have you?"

Provided all is well, I'm glad they're updating a codex that needed the update, and not just because it was Space Marines.

Jokers to the right,
Here I am,
Stuck in the middle with you."
