So I just got the latest email from GW, and to my disapointment the new War Hydra model is all metal, so get out your pinvises cause its going to take a lot of pins to keep that thing together.
Are you sure? I could have sworn in some of the preview pictures on this sight there is an unpainted plastic model in plain view.

Typically they don't do big monster types in plastic unless they will sell loads of them. Such as the plastic Dragon or giant that can be easily used by many armies or the Tyranid Carnifex which is only for Tyranids but the rules allow loads to be used. The Hydra is a Dark Elf only critter and a rare choice so I imagine it will be metal. Like the Black coach and Corpse cart for Vampires. The Cart is less important than the Coach but the Cart is plastic because much more of them can be used. Of course I may be wrong, does anybody have any pictures of the new Hydra. I can't find any close ups and I like the Hydra.
Ok yeah, its resin. Well I think since I own a number of Krieg soldiers.

well according to GW's dark elf preview website it is an all metal model, as is the supreme sorceress on cold one, the new character model with the kraken mask, and the new dread lord. Those 4 were advertises specifically as the new metal models coming out for dark elves.
if the new hydra is metal no one will bye it because the old one looks nicer...
I went in to my local store earlier today, and while the manager was giving me the ''buy 5th ed, its awesome'' speech i took the topic off into the realm of fantasy. The look on his face when i told him that the hydra looks like a Greyhound was unmissable And hearing him try to defend it afterwards, despite the fact i could tell he agreed, was even better lol.
Nothing to do with the model, but i just wanted to put that little story somewhere
I don't understand everyone hating on it so much, I think it looks great! so much better than the current one with the heads looking all awkward. and that skinny look reminds me of the displacer beast from D&D 3.5. It could come in handy for some chaos conversions.
the new one looks like it has 4 dragon heads...
GW are making every mini that is a reptile look like a dragon
other than the cold ones wich look awsome!
the problem is GW can get dragons right but not any other reptile like creture hydras i dont think are even related to dragons????
as a dragon head the hydra looks sweet but there is no orriginallity itsonly savinggrace is that is plastic (but thats not even happening now!!!).
