with the high elves getting redone next year (after empire or vampire counts) ive been thinking 'i wont bother buying swordmaster/eagles/etc yet' because theres a high chance those units will be re-made in glorious plastic.. or maybe just metal again...
anyways what are the units you think will be remade? surely they wont bother changing spearmen/archers/SH cos they are already in plastic... however lots of people hate the plastic models (spearmen and the SH horses).. i myself think they are fine and think GW should concentrate on SM/WL etc.. AND A FRICKIN CHARIOT! so:
spearmen: hope not
archers: hope not
silver helms: hope not
shadow warriors: doubt it
swordmasters: HELL YES!
ellyrion reavers: probs
chariot: hope so
dragon princes: already newish models... hmmm
eagles: confirmed already
phoenix guard: same as dragon princes
bolt thrower: hell no
white lions: hope so
arf. i already have spearmen, SH, archers, shadow warriors and 2 RBTs... i hope any of these wont be remade cos i will be tempted by the shiny new models :rolleyes:
whats the fine LO comunity think??>>>>

just wondering but where did you hear they were being redone.
theyre gonna be redone after empire its no longer a old wives tale or a myth its true. i plan on starting them when you get redone. but i thinks its still gonna be a while until you actually here some reall stuff about them getting redone but alot of people are 99.99% sure theyre getting redone after empire.
Without ME its just AWESO!!!

Ah, while looking for it, I've discovered that they've started a new rumour roundup thread:

Anyway, what I would like to see with regards to models is plastic Swordmasters, basically because I don't really like the current ones, and I prefer plastic over metal. While I can see why people don't like the spearmen and archers, personally I quite like them, so I would probably prefer them not to get redone, especially as I'm sure I would be eyeing up new models and spending a load of cash replacing my current ones.
Other than that I'm not really sure what I think, most of the range fall into the 'quite good' sort of category for me, not really calling out for a new sculpt, but I wouldn't really mind it if they did (as long as they were good of course)

hear hear ancalagon! theres no need for new spearelves/archers.. we want those plastic swordmasters!!!!!!!!
btw anyone heard that rumor about a new cavalry sprue? one that can be made to be either of the 3 types of cavalry we already have strange one indeed although ellyrion reavers defo need new models

I just want a chariot pulled by lions, is it so much to ask?
Plastic swordmasters, and them not being 0-1 would rock to. :yes:
He's coming for you...

In my very biased opinion, Dark Elves are in much more dire need of an update.. the ONLY plastic models we have are basic warriors.. we dont even have a Highborn/Noble model.
Then there's the crappy magic items and stupid cavalry etc..
High Elves already got freshened up with some new mages and things like that..
Basically theres a Dark Elf / High Elf variant of each unit. Take Swordmasters & Executioners for example. They are the same thing, a great weapon & heavy armour.. Except SM's are better..(they dont strike last).
The same can be said about most other units. Spearmen are better than Dark Elf spearmen because they fight in 3 ranks but cost more in points (rightfully so). If they get reduced in cost then where's the fairness there?
The list goes on..
I dont mind HE's being redone, but I think DE's need it more urgently. Especially if HE are being powered up, not just tidied up rules & new models. That would usher in a bit of a 'dark age' of HE dominance over DE until they are also redone.. We are already the under-dogs as it is.
Just look at Eldar & Dark Eldar in 40k. The same thing is going on there.
Anyway..lol.. A new chariot model for HE's would be nice. as long its only a new model and not strengthened rules-wise.
Some of the special characters definately need a new model. (namely Teclis).
Swordmasters look alright but the sword looks too plain. Needs to look sleeker & sharper.
I wouldnt mind seeing an awesome new dragon.. Yes, I would die of jealousy.. BUT, atleast I might see a few more Elven armies including them.. at the moment I dont think enough do.

Actually as far as the dragon is concerned, I heard a different rumor. The guys at our local GW are talking about a new generic Dragon plastic boxed set that will have pieces to make it one of the 4 possibly variants.
