We have a codex cover! It is in the same art style and probably the same artist (Raymond Swanland) as all the other recent codices.
Here we see that “Raiders of Commorragh” is the painting guide. That would seem to indicate that the other mentioned book “Dark Eldar: Wyches” is probably the supplemental codex. I would assume it would cover dedicated Wych focused army lists as opposed to the generalist Kabal lists represented by the Dark Eldar Codex.
Haemonculi are deranged flesh-sculptors that dwell in the dank bowels of Commorragh. They are master torturers, expert poisoners and dark alchemists that are capable of transcending death itself. Their ability to alter the bodies of their victims to create obscene horrors wrought of flesh and bone is an invaluable dark gift, with many of their creations proven to be essential assets when war is waged in realspace.
This 11-piece plastic kit makes one Haemonculus equipped with an array of deadly surgical instruments and a splinter pistol. His body is born aloft by a grotesquely elongated spine, as he drifts across the field of battle with a macabre elegance, gifting a slow and painful death to all those who cross its path.
As attendants and servants to the Haemonculi, each Wrack is an abhorrent example of his master’s surgical craftsmanship, an individual cut apart and refashioned into a walking instrument of torture. Upon the field of battle they will defend their creator with their lives, utilizing all manner of disturbing, exotic weapons.
This 86-piece plastic kit makes five Wracks. Each Wrack can be equipped with a host of weapons, including hooked blades, studded clubs, 1 liquifier gun and 1 ossefactor. There are also eleven heads, including three intended for the Acothyst. This kit also includes two additional sets of arms which allow you to convert one Wrack into a Raider pilot or gunner, as seen in the picture gallery.
Horrors of the Dark City $290.75
The Horrors of the Dark City bundle contains 24 Plastic Citadel miniatures, including: 1 Haemonculus, 4 boxes of 5 Wracks, 2 Raiders and 1 Talos Pain Engine/Cronos Parasite Engine.

Week 1 shows up with 2 kits, some hobby accessories, a Black Library novel and no codex. They seem to be going back and forth on the early codex – late codex pattern from release to release. I’m still trying to put my finger on exactly why.

Sign me up for Wrack vehicle crewmen – that’s just COOL!
Hmm, we’ll have to wait and see what the US price is, but $36 (rumored price) seems fairly steep for 10pt. Wracks as they are now in the current codex. If they got a decent power bump, then perhaps…
It looks like 40K chaos fans may be getting a holiday treat!
Questoris Knight Magaera £110.00
Ok, the Ionic flare Shield is pretty amazing. Getting the combination of the standard Knight shield with the -1,-2 strength is very cool to see on a knight chassis.
Forgeworld Open Day Europe showed off alternative arms for these guys including a giant Volkite weapon. Look for that in the days ahead.
