I know you've all probably heard it before, but I got my first glimpse at a finalised version of the new Dark Eldar codex today and it's outstanding.

Not only are there lots of great models, but a tonne of brillaint new units as well such as the Venom transports, along with a host of new characters.

No Kruellagh though:shok:

No Kruellagh?
What the hell?
I have learned that there won't be any Solitaires as well... that idea bugs me.

I've seen the new codex, and it has inspired me. I have redesigned my Eldar along the new lines, and plan to try and use the demo copy to play tomorrow.

Not on the interwebz they haven't. :(
actually there was a site that had pages of the codex up as a sneak peak for a few days it has leaked and most likely those people who wanted the points of them zoomed in a saved them.

I'm glad to hear so many positive outpourings for this codex. Then again, I'm not surprised, it is written by the master of the heavens - Phill 'The EverChosen' Kelly.

im happy they let phil do it instead of the other PoS writers they had.

though Dan abnett might do a good job at writing a codex too. atleast fluff wise.

any minis in the book we havent seen yet?
Well I saw the new Helions which are more substantial than the old models, with a nice forward sweep. I also saw the new Mandrakes, which are simply awesome, very reminiscent of some of the Dark Elf models.

I know most people seem primarily interested in rules/models, but has anyone managed a peak into the fluff changes/additions?

Got a look today.

The artwork is pretty much second to none - I think the drawing for the Scourge is second to none - although I didn't get to see the model for it (if there was one - there were about 20 kids in there and I didn't want to get caught hitting one as they tried to steal it), it seemed quite good, although I didn't get to see it's weapon. They're tough as well - a 4+/6++ Save.

And the Heat Lance is an awesome idea. I'm seriously considering actually collecting a Corsair type army. Instead of the wierd and wonderful, it's just pure Dark Eldar, so no Talos, Mandrakes, etc, just Raiders, Warriors, and Incubi.

unfortunately there is no scourge model yet but having an assault 3 gun has pretty much made them replace my warriors as the standard troop killer - warriors are now just there to fill in troop choices and have 1 or 2 cheap units to capture objectives

ultimately I would agree with Liger, but at the same time, since scourge ARE Fast attack, and they cant capture points, so Ill have to see what I can do before I decide where everything is, and what they all do.
