I'm just wondering... Are they are really phasing out?
O & G: 5/0/1
No, they're taking them off the shelves only until the various Eldar armies get new Codecies. No sense trying to push an army on newbies that they won't be able to play at all (and make them give up the game entirely, losing $ for GW).
they didn't sell enough, so they're taking them off stores shelves to make room for stuff that will sell.
it's too bad, DE are a really good army. and aren't as hard to play as alot of people make them out to be.
the only thing is, i really hope they redo alot of the models... imo they're not that good (ie wyches yuk!
they said that they're going to redo the fluff for eldar/dark eldar. and that they'll all be in the same codex. but they did say that they are NOT phasing DE out.
Oh, ok. Because a friend of mine wanted to start them. (After getting the boxed set a while ago.) He decided he wanted to do DE and I was wondering if it was a waste of money for him to start with them... And with your answers I'de say yes, it is. Atleast now.

Yeah, I'd wait like 3 years for the new DE models, unless you like them now.
They are NOT phasing out. I've had a lengthy 3-hour discussion with a GW employee (who works for the corporation; not the shops), and he said the problem with DE is that nobody likes them cuz of the models, and they are hard to play. He said that the DE players so far LOVES them, but others do not.
There, they are currently off-shelf, but only in GW stores.
That does NOT mean they will be off shelf in OTHER, non-GW owned stores.
IE Wizkids, Genesis Games & Gizmos, etc, etc, etc.

They should still have stock in shops. I just think that they are waiting for it to end, they are not actively removing all dark eldar boxes so you can find them still.
DE have their own fluff section in the new rulebook, so I seriously doubt theyre going away
