    Autarch on Jetbike

    This is the sneak peak of the new Autarch on a Jetbike. To be honest I am not that impressed considering the calibre of the other models in the Eldar range. It does however have some potential. :C


    Basically life sucks, there is only war and you're probably gonna get eaten by Tyranids, have fun.

    Hmm doesn't seem to special. Looks like they've just put an autarch head on.

    the lance seems longer, the thing has a couple of banner poles and a loin cloth, oterwise head as above on a standard spear? new spears are also due out so will be interesting how muchthey vary but yes, not overly impressed, would be nice to see parts so a head swap for either mandiblasters or banshee mask both of which would be standard
    Everything you have been told is a lie!

    Meh, it at least sounds like it will be decent converting potential.

    I think I'd still prefer to convert from the mandiblaster autarch on foot. This looks to me like a belated "Oooh, autarchs on bikes are popular!" rush move by GW. The rider shares more with a souped up guardian rather than an Autarch.

    They could have done so much better.

    The upside being that they may finally get around to making a farseer and some warlocks on bikes...maybe...

    Wasn't the farseer on jetbike in the pipeline?

    Yeah, I know what you mean. It seems a little hastily done. We'll just have to see just how much it costs, and what kind of options come with it.

    I'm pretty sure this model is in the apocalypse eldar jetbike force. After looking...



    Whether this means he's specific to that set, I don't know. It will be great if there are different heads and options, but for some reason I'm not holding my breath.

    Saying this model has converting potential is a bit like saying the normal shining spear/guardian jetbike has conversion potential as they are the same bike!

    Shouldn't the Autarch have a neater bike or something? This one looks like he just grabbed the first one on the rack. I'm extremely dissapointed with this one.

    The only thing that might save it is if there are different head/weapon options and that the whole thing if plastic.

    because of the lack of greatness to details n such, i would take a wild guess that it will be all plastic, wouldnt make sense for GW to make something so basic metal. then again, GW can be funny like that sometimes.

    The armour leaves much to be desired, in my case.

    All in all, it looks meh. I'm not jumping out of my seat to pick one up.
