Does anyone know when the new warhammer edition is coming out? Ive heard that its sometime at the end of the year.
And will there be a new DE codex? If so, does anyone know what changes are likely to take place. Any new units, items etc.
I keep hearing the new rulebook will be out in August, but some other folks have heard September. They will eventually make a new Dark Elf arm book, but I haven't heard a peep about when that will be.
I've heard DE have a fairly high priority, because they don't have many plastic box sets like the newer armies. Still, I wouldn't expect them for at least a few years.
7th edition is indeed meant to be coming in either August or September, the main box will have Dwarfs and O&G.
Thanks. When the DE codex is eventually updated, d'you think there'll be any NEW units or will they just change the current ones slightly?
yeah ive heard about a new rulebook comething in the fall, cause well its our turn. darkelves nothing on the new rules, even though we have the largest errata. Im looking for an actually noble/highborn model. im sick of converting and maybe some plastic darkriders/corsairs
Darks Elves 6000ptsWood Elves 500pts (WIP)
Imperial Guard 5000pts
I asked games workshop directly about this subject not long ago. I was worried about starting an army then having it be outdated by new models.. they told me 'there are no plans to re-release the Dark elves (or the codex i guess) in the near future'. So yeah, im sure it will be afew years yet.
also asked about the new edition. Yes 7th edition will be released later this year. (not sure when) But i imagine sometime near, but before, christmas. which is smart marketing i guess.
The new rule book will only be released in a big box set which contains dwarves and goblins.. which is bad news for anyone who doesnt use those (like myself). So we will be paying something around $150 just to get the rulebook out of it. Thank god for Ebay..im sure i wont be the only one selling dwarves and goblins on there once this happens lol..
THey also said something about a sticker you get if you buy the current edition this year, then when 7th edition comes out you can send it in along with your current edition and they give you the new edition. Which is fairly good of them. Sounds like the only way around buying the big-box-set..
I think the release dates also depend on what country you are in.
Ask them yourselves before taking my word as gospel though.
And yes i couldnt agree more about the noble/highborn model.. im having to use my CoK dread knight as the highborn to go on my dragon (instead of malekith)

I forgot about that.. I heard you just need the docket of either the current big box or the current rulebook (purchased after june 1st apparently) and they'll give you the new one.
Also, they will be releasing a rulebook seperate from the main box, just like for 40k. The box one will have no fluff, just rules, and the seperate one will have.. Well, everything.
cool. later this year.
d'you think that when the DE update codex comes out that we'll all have to get rid of the current models?
and is there anything that u guys want to see added or changed about the DE?
As mentioned above, i hope there'll be some new characters and plastic models: $16 for i dark rider is too much - thats $80 for a unit of 5 (i'm in Australia so prices might be different where you guys are form)!!
I would like to see some improvement to the moutned sorceress model. Firstly GW doesnt seem to realise that putting a sorceress on a cold one is sooo stupid in terms of game play.. why take something that costs nearly 30 points, moves 7", & suffers from stupidity.. when you can take a steed that costs less than half that, moves 9" and doesnt suffer stupidity... I had to buy the morathi model and leave off the pegasus wings to make my sorceress on dark steed.. (which worked great and looks awesome & unique) but not all gamers have either the skill or patience to convert things.. so yeah they should consider releasing a standard mounted sorceress with a dark steed and a cold one to chose from. Not to mention improving the looks of the actual sorceress, :x .Originally Posted by Dark Pain
Apart from that there are only some minor niggles that i would like to see fixed, such as how well the metal models fit together.. Metal is a pain is the a** unless its like corsairs where u dont have to build anything.
I would like to see DE's get a new seige weapon too. RBT's are awesome but some variety would be nice.

Yeah or maybe some more beasties. A good idea would be to allow Dark Elf players to customise the hydra like in the Chapter Approved article in White Dwarf some time ago. Some of those beasties were sick.
Another good idea would be to have a super weapon stolen from the Lizardmen, a prize from the Dark Elf/Chaos incursion led by Morathii in the Storm of Chaos.
