Oh, its getting very close now. Gamesday UK is next weekend. Here’s the latest on the Dark Eldar release one week out:
via Dakka’s Kroothawk
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)
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.
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 ).
Tick tock. We’ve waited over a decade the the Dark Eldar to return. Whats another week? Have at it guys.
