    Howling Banshees devolution.

    In the latest White Dwarf, there are pictures of new howling banshee models. I wouldn't usually complain, but they look to have devolved from the fantastic current models to what look like crazy storm guardians. Would people agree, and what are peoples opinions. Look particularly at the helmets.

    Yeah, I much prefer the present ones as well. Oh well, lets hope the new scorps are up to it. They can hardly get worse can they?:shifty:

    Aye! The new howling banshees have regressed; the current ones are fine! If I collect eldar, then I'm gonna use only the current ones! Death to the regressed ones! *blows the crappy new models away with bolt pistol*

    It's a tough call. I like the current ones, but they have the waistline of a small child in relation to the rest of their body . I don't think the new ones are any worse, just different. The sword is nicer, and the proportions aren't quite as exaggerated as the current ones are.

    Better, I don't think so. Merely different.

    While on the subject of Eldar, can anyone tell me how big the eldar epic revenent titans are compared to an eldar guardian please?

    I think that the slender anorexic shape adds to the appearance of the banshees, personally. I seriously am disappointed by the change of hats, though.

    Personly it goes with the etheric "Banshee" like qaulity's of the banshee which I think is a improvement on the old ones who look like they used to much hair gel and wax.

    It also lends to the apearance of them being countinualy fast and agile, the fleet of foot and always strick first in 1st turn of CC.:yes:

    I like the newer banshee models, they seem more...more gritty, to me they seem more 40k than the current ones.

    They still look fragile but to me they look like they can actually slice a marine in half with little effort.

    For my mind, the current Banshees are fantastic. They look dangerous.
    Those new ones they're bringing out, well...looks like they've put on a bit of weight really.
    They look pudgy.
    Plus, they're a real step back towards the second edition Banshees models.
    GW are making a very unneccesary replacement here.

    What they should have focused on was NEW WARP SPIDERS!!!!
    The only Aspect that didn't get a resculpt last time around, and they're missing out again.

    Do we really need new Striking Scorpians/Dire Avengers/Fire Dragons?

    We could use some Swooping Hawks that look a bit dangerous. That would be nice.

    And as for new sculpts, I can't believe that we wont be seeing new Wraithguard, and we especially won't be seeing them in plastic. GW is really dropping the ball with the Eldar.

    And new jetbikes!!! Not so much the bikes but the riders. They should be brought up to date with the rest of the Eldar force. This would also save me from having to convert mine, but I might as well, seeing as they're dropping Guardian Storm Squads from the new Codex.
    Ain't nothing else I can do with those sixteen models, so they'll now become my Jetbike pilots.
