Welcome to Librarium Online!
i was in games workshop the other day and was chatting away to the one of the guys in there, about the 5th edition of 40k and 5th edition codex space marines and i was asking if he new anything about the other races, he said he had heard a rumour that the dark eldar were being completly removed, even though they were just being put into soulstorm (new DoW) expansion, i was really surprised and asked him how sure he was, he said it was just a rumour but seemed quite sure, i couldn't believe this, it just can't be true GW would be isane to scrap a race, has anyone else heard of this?
Next thing you know, GW will just make the Eldar and DE in one codex, with different choices dependant on the HQ.
It's just a rumour, just a rumour...
Create flames for a galaxy and it will be warm. Put a galaxy in flames and it will be warm for the rest of it's existence.
Either he was fooling you around which I doubt it, or he's talking about the current range. They could be removing the current range to make way for the new stuff perhaps? I'm afraid I don't know anymore than you do, but as I have seen pictures of some new DE stuff I highly doubt they are scrapping it. Hope this helps.
i agree i don't think he was fooling me, he seemed quite serious, i don't think they'll put a de an e codex together because GW has only just realesed a new E codex. I think you could right about your second comment, mabye getting rid of them for a short time and then re-releasing them for a new range seems quite likely, i will be very surprised if they do just get rid of them because they are one of the most charectuful armies in the game and it would be a real shame,
anyway its just what i heard, could just be rumours
I think the corallation between Dark Eldar in Soulstorm and them being ditched by Games Workshop is never going to happen!
If anything i think it was an incredibly clever thing that Games Workshop have deployed without people even realising it. I know of over 25 new people at my club that have started playing due to DoW and with the expected re-vamp of Dark Eldar brought to us by Jared we can guarantee when they ARE released they will fly off the shelves.
Without us even realising it Games Workshop are feeding us, through a media we love, the models which we have also come to love.
My homage to my time spent at Libararium Online:
People have claimed that DE are getting removed about every other week since the first release of their codex. DE getting axed is less likely then witch hunters being scrapped and fused in to a new inquisition book. Besides, its already been confirmed that they are working on the new codex update (just not when it is coming out) and that they are already re-making the model line (the guy who did the eldar harlequins is working on are new stuff).
Besides, we've gotten new stuff in both Apocalypse and IA Apocalypse (well, the latter was just a reprint of something older but w/e).

Maybe it was just because our codex celebrates a decade of existence without an update this year, who knows...
Nut yeah, last I heard was early-mid 2009.
