With the release of all the new Dark Angels stuff cluttering up the boards I thought I would bring back a thread on... The Elder.

Even though I'm not a elder player being a Drama student I have a special interest in anything like the Harlequins. Plus I love the character of the Fool.

So with the release of the new mini's whos happy with them and who's not.

Please note that we know everybody who plays elder will love the rules and everybody who doesn't will hate them on the tabletop. So please make your judgement on how they look.

My vote is great. Although I would have prefered it if the Death Jester and Shadow Seer (DJ especially) had more than one scuplt. I am waiting with baited breath untill the blisters for the Troupe Master arrive at my local Indepent Stockist so that I can convert him up (cut his hands of and rescuplt them with not weapons) and paint him in black and white to be a mini version of me.

I think there quite nice they have sort of grown on me since the preview pics were released, there also a massive Improvement over the old school models. The major gripe I have with them Is the lack of molds/poses, the fact that If I want multiple Harlies with Kiss's I'm going to have to either have duplicate models at a major price (only two In the range with) or I'll have to convert them up which Isn't one of my specialities, serves me right for being a beardy/lazy bastard I suppose! :p

Very nice (but not my taste.)

I love them, I like the old ones as well but these are definatley great. They are very Wood Elf Wardancer like, but thats not a bad thing either. It'll be spendy to get the 30 I need for the Harlie army I have lurking if I ever do it :)
