Welcome to Librarium Online!
S4MUR4I on the MWUnion forum posted these little beauties. These pictures I took from warseer as they are of a better quality than was posted on the original site. Feel free to drool over them.

Looks like Ill be throwin out those old corsairs! They look nice and I like the idea of repeater hand bows for them just like the Darkblade stories.
Im not keen on the dread lord model, what kind of a Dark Elf wields what looks like a pointy stick.
The corsairs come with shields? That implies shields are an option... they're already just as survivable as warriors against shooting as it is and arguably better in combat... the addition of shields will certainly put them over the top. RXBs, too? Pray tell, is there any reason to take warriors at all, now?
Drag queen of LO... HAETRS GONNA HAET!
Savlar (6k), Executioners (full company!), Farsight (500 points), Warriors of Chaos (6k), Dark Elves Cult Of Pleasure (4k), Nomads/Caledonians/ISS (infinity), Clan Wolf (BT)
Yep, I too see no reason whatsoever to pick the 7point warriors over the 13point corsairs (or something like that... just shooting from the hip here. :p )
You know, if you hold your hand over the top part of the dreadlord he looks pretty good... (and if you hold it over the bottom part it looks like a love struck vampire in partial bat form is trying to tongue the angry slave dancer)
The new corsairs definetly look pretty snazzy.
I like em, they look like they got character!
Nicely dynamic too.
Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.
Voor alle nederlanders:
The Dutch Legion
I have a feeling they're might take out warriors entirely, with these new corsairs, warriors seem incredibly redundant
Project Terracotta - Currently Underway
Corsairs won't totally replace warriors.
1) They cost more
2) They only have repeater handbows, which means less range and possibly no AP.
I mean if you're looking for CR, warriors are in no way obsolete. Corsairs or going to cost nearly twice as much, potentially more with said options.
Its really those Buddhists we have to watch out for.
