    Incoming - High Elves

    Just got that mail from GW:



    The High Elves are the noblest of races, the remnant of a once-mighty civilisation that spanned the globe. The titanic destruction unleashed by the Daemons of Chaos and the monstrous betrayal of the Dark Elves left their nation a shadow of its former might and glory, and yet the High Elves fight on. For millennia they have stood sentinel against the depredations of Chaos, thwarting the machinations of the Dark Gods over and again, and though their population has dwindled, the skill and determination of their armies remains steadfast.
    In battle, the armies of the High Elves are a glorious sight to behold. Ranks of elite soldiers clad in unspotted white and glittering silver stand against the dark tide of the Forces of Destruction. With a mystical grace and agility that is incomparable to the lumpen, slothful gestures of lesser mortals, they cleave through the foe with spear and blade - their skill and speed a match for any foe. Volleys of white-fletched arrows are sent slashing into the foe, accompanied by the heavier, deadlier shots of the Eagle Claw Bolt Throwers, which can punch through even the thickest armour. Powerful High Elf Mages direct the ebb and flow of the Winds of Magic to smite the foe with incandescent flames, or protect their allies with the dazzling power of Asuryan, the king of the Elven gods.
    For more information about the High Elf releases in October, watch out for future newsletters, keep an on the Games Workshop website and check out October's issue of White Dwarf.

    I suppose this wave of releases will be designed to bring the rest of the models up to the standard set by the Island of Blood set. After all, who would buy the current models for spearmen/reavers/swordmasters when the ones that are going to come in the starter box look so much better?

    This is good news for me, it's a reason to expand my High Elf army, and to build on the Isalnd of Blood stuf without having to buy about 3 of the starter set...

    The new starter set is the perfect bolster to my current HEs, although my poor Reavers will look like crap against the new plastic ones.

    Also i'll now have the option of a prince on a dragon or on a griffon!

    I agree. I have a very large daemon army but got a couple skaven things as well. Looks like I will be collecting a small high elf army as well. I just hope there are plastic white lions and p guard. In all honesty high elves have a decent range already. Just make those 2 plastic and everythings good.

    I've heard that there is indeed a HighElf book slated. Jot sure why, as they're still solid, but oh well.
    As for releases: good. I have 4k of HE but its all cavalry. This will get my beloved elves back to playable conditions at a slightly reduced cost.
