Well, the entire range needs to be redone, so I'd expect to see new...everything.
I'm digging the Haemonculus on the left-- I like the sort of heavy-bladed glaive she's got. At least, I think it's a she... kind of hard to tell with the greens, but it's a bigger chest than the one on the right...
Are those Chicks? They should be. All the evil nasties in the DE line need to be Chicks. I swear that more femmes would play the game if DE followed more closely to the true female nature. SoB's are simply too nice.
From what I read of the original thread that pic was in, those greens are 'unreleased' versions that one of the sculptors made along with a few others and not necessarily new sculpts for the DE line. They are being done and word is that they are being worked on by Jes Goodwin so don't get bummed out but those sculpts may not be the actual 'new' ones.
I know your joking but I think you probably would be correct on this. I think the whole line needs to be redone as I love my DE I just don't like the models and would welcome some new models. They are wicked nasty in the hands of an experienced player.
I'm also skeptical about how new these are as well. The model behind them, the Vidente Eldar.. That's roughly Eldar (far)Seer, and I don't know of any new ones on the horizon. If someone can match up the legs to a current farseer, you can see when the greens were actually introduced. Both those do look pretty awesome. The one on the left looks more like a Wych than a Haemonculus though.
EDIT: Upon further review, I looked at all the Farseer figs and no legs match up with those legs. And that model is definitely pewter-looking.. New farseers as well as new dark eldar?
RE-EDIT!: Apparently, that farseer is an older unreleased farseer. I came upon it in the warseer post about this dark eldar picture. They had the farseer's picture and the legs are identical. And its an ugly model. Let's hope that those aren't BS greens.
There was talk on Warseer that the Haemonculi were actually Juan Diaz's experimental pieces rather than models from the future Dark Eldar range. I hope that's incorrect as they look good and I really want to see the Dark Eldar re-done well.
This is just what i was told so dont flame me. I also posted on teh tranid hive forum site on the same topic.
DE are getting a revamp. I asked a cleric in one Games Workshop and he said he couldnt tell me much but to watch out in August 2009 casue that was when it was supposed to happen. He proceeded to tell me that the troops, raiders and wyches were being redone and the codex would upgradfe their stats to that above eldar (after all, DE posses dark tech). He said he hadseen dev photos and the armour looked like hell spiky space marine armour so whether that reflects in teh stats i dont now.
I have just looked on the games workshop site and there is something planned for june and september but nothing so far for july/august so we could get lucky.
