Dark Eldar Products

A reduced price Incubi box(which is drastic, it seems, becoming cheaper than Wracks are now).

Two items named “Dark Eldar: Covens” and “Dark Eldar: Wyches” for the same price as a 7th Ed Codex. Now I can’t say with much certainty what these are, but based on their price and title, I think they might be supplements.

In addition to that, I have seen the normal 7th Ed priced ‘Codex: Dark Eldar” and the “Codex: Dark Eldar Limited Edition” that is a bit cheaper than others.

Also of interest is the “Dark Eldar Tantalus” that I found that is four dollars cheaper than three Terminator boxes. If this Tantalus entry pans out, I would assume it is our version of the Imperial Knight/Baneblade/Stompa.

Now of course the one that has everyone scratching their head is the reference to “Tantalus”.  As Forgeworld has been selling this for years:

Dark Eldar Tantalus £88.50

First crafted, so it is said, for the Archon Surasis Grief of the Kabal of the Dark Mirror, the Dark Eldar Tantalus is an assault skimmer, somewhat larger and more complex in design than the Raider, and accordingly better armed. Its distinctive twin-hulled design houses powerful engine-reactors slaved to enhanced drives and its unique scythevane armament.

One of the largest Dark Eldar vehicles yet encountered by the Imperial war machine, the cruel reavers who crew this sleek engine of destruction take delight in mounting high-speed attacks, slicing through the hulls of enemy vehicles and rending infantry into crimson shreds.

In general, GW no longer just lifts models from the Forgeworld line.  So either it’s a mistake, totally made up, or GW is going back to the Trygon/Valkyrie days…

The Dark Eldar rumor train is just getting started…
