http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum...st/292253.pageThis poster also mentions later in the thread that he's quite certain we'll see WD pics around June and a release around August.A thread specifically for the news and rumours related to the miniatures.
No rules necessary as there are plenty of threads for them.
After seeing (some) of the warriors that were assembled from the new DE warrior sprue (I did not see the bits on the sprue) last weekend and having been given the all clear to talk about them by my source:
Best start point is to use this pic as a reference.
The warriors are not striding forward and hunched over like they are about to tip over- legs are laid out in a wide stance and the models are much, much better proportioned than the old ones, so no more legs that go all the way up and tiny torsos.
Helmets and non helmeted heads included.
Non helmeted head has a high ponytail.
Ribs/shards of bone poke through loincloths and the ponytail.
The helmets are pretty much identical to the above pic, but with lumps/gems over the ears/temples.
From behind the helmets look exactly like eldar guardian ones.
There is a gem/soulstone on the left chest armour- not the shoulder armour piece as per the above pic.
This is where you have to use your imagination as the pic doesn't show it: On the back there is a backpack that looks like it started as an eldar backpack but does not stick out as far, has vestigal 'vanes' compared to the eldar one (so doesn't stick up above the shoulder) and most excellently down the centre of the backpack, it is recessed with scaled armour over the spine (triangular scales with points downwards)
A high collar that flanges out
Rifle is almost exactly the same as the pic for the base model, even down to the jagged bit that pokes up in front of the warriors abdomen in the pic. There is a variant with what looks to be crossbow arms sticking out laterally (ends up looking like a mini anchor)
Attachable Loincloths (variable designs) One has a skull, one a hook on them.
As per the pic, greaves over the lower legs, then knee pads and scales over the upper legs, with points upwards.
Knife scabbard, 2 'rods' and 2 small sachels on the 'utility belt' posteriorly
Blades of differing lengths and size on various armour parts, primarily lower legs and shoulder pads.
Curved knife HW available.
Attachable blades for the end of splinter rifle.
The models will be about as close to the source pic as you can imagine, and finally GW does concept art proud.
I played DE when they first caame out through to about 2003 before selling them off.
The new warriors make me desperately want to do a new army.
You heard it on dakka first.

looks a bit like a smooth necron
i rock my world
im thinking pointy cylon
wow, that image looks great, if the minis are anything like that, it's pure imba with awesomesauce.
I really hope the dark eldar turn out great, and more people pick them up, I could really do with some more diversity amongst my opponents.
yes it does look a bit cylonish
i rock my world
any info on how many come in a box? I assume they will stick with the 10 models for 22$ model that the last few armies have used for their troop choices.
Finally i can continue my Dark Eldar army!
"Thank him who puts me loath to this revenge on you who wrong me not for him who wrongd"
I won't play 'em, but that's awesome!
I hope you guys are right. Although Id say necrons need a redo before them. Since DE can still perform in the hands of an experienced player.
Eldar -APOC- 6500 Points
Chaos Daemons -Fate Crusher- 3500 Points
Grey knights - 1000 Points
DICE LIKE THUNDER was talking about a play tester that said when a special DE unit overruns any enemey unit that unit becomes like zombie slaves. Like you overrun a terminator squad and then they join you somehow. Also, a chain on a jetbike that can pull one soldier out of a unit and then throw him like a STR 4 bomb.
I'm a reasonable guy. But, I've just experienced some very unreasonable things.
