Harlequin Death Jester
Alternative Autarch with Warp Spider jump pack, Striking Scorpion Biting Blade and Mandiblasters.
Farseer + Warlock Bodyguard
This Autarch is IMO much much better than the other one. Also, Death Jester!!

Which one is the Autarch?
The top one looks like a Dark Reaper exarch or something, the middle one looks like a Striking Scorpion exarch (with the mandiblasters) and the bottom one, as it says in the package is a Farseer...
the top one is obviously a death jester, but i think your right about the other two......
The top is, indeed, a Death Jester.... and it's a beautiful model. *drools* However, if it's part of a standard Eldar army... that's annoying. :sleep:
What exactly is an Autarch? It's another HQ choice, but is it Aspect-specific? If so, the middle one may very well be an Autarch, simply because the other one we've seen looked more like a Swooping Hawk than anything else..
Its basicly an exarch that becomes an HQ. You can tool him out in a varrying degree of other aspect equipment.
Forget the death jester, is that a Warp Spider box set I see? Praise be to the person who brings me that box pic!
I've seen a man roll 26 ones in a single handfull of dice, and Tycho die 49 consecutive times in 60 games. I've had a wolf lord never die (106 games) and a war walker kill a Force Commander AFTER its gotten both weapons destroyed. I've lived a full gaming life.
I think that they get different abilities from different aspects, maybe having to specialize in one but still having skills from others? I think from what the rumours say of his stats he is a bit like a phoenix lord but not as powerful and taking parts from all the aspects (just more from some). Im basing this on the fact you can see small parts from different aspects (especially dire avengers), or maybe they are just a weaker non-special character version of the phoenix lords with some more flexibility for you to chose their special skills and weapons, just ideas..
Then that would explain why they have different models for 'em. :yes: Taking on the majority of one Aspect, I doubt you'd dress up like a Swooping Hawk if you were related closer to a Dire Avenger or Striking Scorpion.
That does look like a Warp Spider boxed set, but that model (the only full one you can see) looks.... exactly the same as it is already.
Sorry, I realise I wasn't being particularly clear. First post has been edited.Originally Posted by Robizzle
The top one is the new Harlequin Death Jester. There are rumours that Harlequins are going to come as a new Elites choice for both Eldar and Dark Eldar (similar to Storm Troopers/Inquisitors etc for the Witch Hunters/Daemon Hunters armies). The second picture is the second Autarch model.
This Autarch has Warp Spider jump pack, Striking Scorpion Biting Blade and Mandiblasters, Shuriken Pistol. The first autarch (picture here) had Swooping Hawk wings, Dire Avenger Sword and Shuriken Pistol. The Autarch for those who don't know is a new HQ choice, basically an uber-exarch who can pick and choose equipment from the different Aspects.
As mentioned above, the Phoenix Lords are Autarchs and will probably be identical in stats. The difference between Phoenix Lords and the HQ Autarch is that the Phoenix Lords are more specialised in one aspect, so they will probably have lots of special abilities/equipment.
On a related note: There is a rumoured special character for the eldar who is going to be an Autarch, and some are saying it is Yriel! (Yriels Raiders, Eldar pirates. They helped save Iyanden)
The third picture is the Farseer + Warlock Bodyguard boxed set.
