But the rules are also in a limited edition book, ebook and white dwarf IIRC.

Ifthey can charge, they will charge.
The book isn't limited edition. They just ran out of hard copies because they underestimated the demand for it (let's be honest they haven't done a campaign book like that since the Eye of Terror in 3rd and probably based the run numbers on something like codex numbers not realizing how many people would want it in general).

And just because they can doesn't mean you have to pay. If there is no codex then you don't have to buy the WD.

Of course that's not getting into OTHER ways of getting rules. :secret:

I have the Skyweavers information for you.
WS5 BS4 T4 W2 I6 Sv4+
100pts gets you 2 skyweavers and you may take up to 4 more.
any model can replace the star bolas-12"S6 AP2 blast 1/use only but in addition to bikes guns, with a zephyrglaive-S+1/User AP2/3 Melee. first numbers are for the round they charge

any jetbike can replace the shuriken cannon with a Haywire Cannon 24"S4 AP4 blast haywire

Wargear, each one comes with a Holo-suit, star bolas, mirage launchers-1/game 4++vs shooting, and a skyweaver jetbike

fear, furious charge, and hit and run are the special rules.

Ouch, a squad of 4 should be able to haywire a vehicle to death, and then charge in with 16 I6 S5 AP2 attacks, stick in combat during the opponents turn and then hit and run to do the same to another unit, 230 points well spent. Now if only I could actually paint well enough to even consider taking a stab at these...

i keep hearing this exact same thing, people say a similar thing about forgeworld minis alot too " i would buy that if could paint better "etc etc
i have to admit even as a fairly competent painter the Harlie checkerboard pattern scares the shit out of me, but ultimately you can get away with anything when painting space clowns, you can throw any colour on you want any pattern your capable of and it cant be wrong, one of the best i ever saw was just black and white, sprayed the whole loy white out of the can and picked out details and patterens in black. looked a bit like this

I know I dont have to do the checkerboard, I could quarter the body and have red/yellow, blue/red, etc, and it'd be a whole lot easier to paint. However, the original artwork I saw was this...



And if I'm going to paint harlequins, I'm going to want to paint them like that, because to me that is the ideal of Harlequins
