    Eldar rumours.

    Eldar rumours courtesy of Stickmonkey.

    Guardians being redone. Will include new weapons platform and storm guardian bits.

    Avatar getting new fine cast version with weapon options (spear/sword) not as big as FW model, but larger than current.

    Lots of new mech options. Jump pack/jet options for walkers similar to new FW models, but unclear if this is new model or upgrade to current model. Upgrade packs don't seem likely, and current model is decent, so I have my doubts about this rumor completely.

    New tank options...built on wave serpent/falcon chassis still. Hydra like flak turret, Bonuses against flyers and skimmers. Dcannon tank. And some pulse cannon monster tank...scorpion?

    New jet bikes and vypers.

    New warlock sculpts.

    New aspect sculpts, aspects still likely fine cast.

    Some sort of shimmershield device. Portable cover save for a unit, but static once deployed...model in design for it. Sounds fishy to me? But the de have the portal...who knows, I say unlikely.

    From obvious dept comes the nightwing and some form of bomber. Neither look at all like de ships, or existing FW. Definitely eldar.

    Drop pod of some sort that can carry 20 troops, 10 wraith guard, or 1 wraith lord. Deploys as firebase that has higher cover rating for guardians. Sounds like a bastion that drops into play with a weapons platform attached. Not sure I buy into this rumor completely, it seems too complex the way it's been described. And I never saw any evidence of this in design before.

    Cheers. Still super long off, though. Have your salt handy.

    Well, the timing seems about right, but I would be betting on later in 2012 rather than mid-way. (Tau, codex chaos legion, and whatever they are doing with the sisters of battle line still need to be released) I'm most interested in seeing what they do with the jetbikes. Looking at the Dark eldar before and after makes me believe that we will be seeing some sleeker rides.
    Tau my love! You are back!

    I heard something about the bastion not being so much a bastion as more a well armed, one use, deployable wraithgate. It provides a cover save for the models coming out of the gate or stay within proximity of the gate. Apply salt to taste.

    Finally some Eldar love. With Necrons and Tau most likely the next ones, we're due. The rumors seem unsure of themselves but some of it sounds good. Hopefully more will be coming.

    The idea of a drop pod just doesn't seem too Eldar but we'll see.

    Excitement building!

    I am really REALLY hoping for plastic Wraithguard. I hope that Banshees and Fire Dragons are going plastic as well... It would explain why there are no finecast models for them (even though both are very popular). Though recasting them would also explain it. The deploy-able bastion/wraithgate thing sounds fishy.

    Above all else, please make the swooping hawks actually playable. Their models are one of the reasons I got into Eldar, but man are they horrible on the table.

    I'm hoping that Fire Dragons gain a 3+ save. No aspect warrior should be played as a kamikaze unit. Make that "no Eldar unit" should be played as a kamikaze unit.

    Every Eldar Aspect is about doing something and some long standing tradition. The Banshee's represent the howling death, scorpions represent stealth and cunning, the swooping hawks represent birds of prey. And there's the Fire Dragons who are basically given a gun and told "Go get 'em!" xD

    I really hope to see plastic Wraithguard that are actually worth taking as well as a little more survivability on the Wraithlord. There was a time when T8 with a 3+ save was durable, but now it's really kind of weak. It really needs at least 2/5.
