im considering starting an army of dark elves, but since the new range is coming soon , im not sure if i should buy the warriors. i have only heard and read rumours of the warriors point cost changes, and nothing about any new warrior models...
so would it be stupid to buy the warrior boxes, or should i wait? have you guys heard anything about warrior models?
have you seen the new battleforce? they look absolutely sweet! the only changes i can see are in characters, maybe the hydra-herders and NEW cold ones. my guess is, if it isnt different in the box, it wont be different at all. good luck
Save your monies and buy up big when the new figures come out.
The warriors are not getting updated, neither are the dark riders.
Arch Overfiend & Grand Despot
I currently play:
Doom Eagle Space Marines
Hive Fleet Omega Tyranids
Goff Ork Boyz(dead)
Tau of O'me
Inquisitorial Xeno Hunters
and my attempted foray into fantasy
'Dark Angel Green' Dark Elves in need of fluff
Which left me rather dissapointed though, seeing how DR's are one of the most frequently used DE units next to Corsairs. Its not that new models are needed, but they could have at least made a box set for them and sold them for cheaper .
But on the original question, no, warriors are not getting redone. If you plan on using them in your army, then go ahead and get a box or two. But I am forwarning you, you might end up regretting buying them if anything get changed in the book. Best bet is to wait it out. Glad to see a new DE player though, welcome!
If you're not rushing to play before the release of the new DE armybook. Then I'd advice you to wait. Buy the new armybook, make a good list and buy your models after that. If you have lots of money to spend then you can check this German company that makes models in the same scale of warhammer and their "warriors" and "dark riders" looks considerably better.
