    High Elf Rumours Compilation

    This was posted by Harry on Warseer. It is a compilation of all the recent High Elf rumours that have been floating about. So all respect goes to him.

    So as yet another High Elf thread is moved to General Fantasy discussion, as it spirals out of control off topic, here, by way of a fresh start, is everything we have got so far on High Elves.

    Lets try and keep this on on topic (and in the rumour section!) and I will try and keep this first page up to date with any new (confirmed) information as it becomes available.

    High Elf release: November: Book and Army Box set.

    THE BOOK : It is done and on its way to the printers. Written by Adam Troke (I presume with input from the rest of the games developers).

    Intrigue at court is gone.
    Elves strike first. (Army rule).
    Archers can fire in two ranks.
    Special Characters include (There could be more but I have not heard it) :
    Tyrion, Teclis, Eltharion and Alith Anar as Lords. (Tyrion, Teclis, Eltharion have been there since the first book. Rick Priestly : 'leave none of the old background behind'. Alith Anar : New model).
    Korhil and Caradryan (Captain of the Phoenix Guard) as Heroes. (Mentioned in the Nemesis Crown booklet).
    There will be three other ‘vanilla’/generic Hero options. (So a new Character type!)
    There will be three types of/different Dragons in the book.
    There will not be a unit of Drake riders. (Allesio : 'we will not make the same mistake as we did with the pegasus knights).

    THE MINIS

    Plastic kits: Mostly by Martin Footit.

    Characters/Heroes/Commanders (Makes 2 characters one mounted and one on foot).
    High Elf Mages (Makes two mages one mounted and one on foot).
    Plastic Dragon kit. (75Hastings69 posted this on warseer months ago. Flying horizontally like the old Dragon Masters dragon (for those who remember that far back). It will come with various rider options to represent different character options who can ride it.
    Spearmen. (I do not think this includes option for Lothern Sea Guard or armoured archers but possibly able to customise these to represent different provinces).
    High Elf Cavalry Plastics. (These were rumoured months ago by 75Hastings69 but I have heard nothing).
    Plastic Chariot kit with option of Lion steeds. (Dave Thomas)

    Metal

    Alith Anar. (Gary Morley).
    Possibly a new eagle.
    Lothern Sea guard including a Sea guard Captain/Commander with a Sea hawk on his wrist and a standard bearer with a carved wooden leg. The art work for the seaguard is a lot more ‘gritty’ than the old look. (More ‘sea dog’ than Sea Elf!) I don’t know if these are part of a bigger ‘redo’ of the Sea Guard models or not.

    Enjoy ^_^

    Basically life sucks, there is only war and you're probably gonna get eaten by Tyranids, have fun.

    No swordmasters? Why thats a sure surprise, I guess my models won't be out of date after all. I always thought that HE players weren't very content with the current swordmaster models.

    Mmm, they're sounding better and better every time I hear new stuff. I'm quite looking forward to it, might have to get a lot more involved than current.

    Its also rumoured that the HE book is going to be pretty big in size.

    I already posted this ^_^

    But it doesn't matter because now more people will have seen it.

    I would be very surprised if we don't see new swordmasters. I think I remember reading somewhere that there will be a plastic swordmaster kit that comes out in the 'second wave' rather like the Black Orcs and Miners have done. I'm not sure where I saw that or how reliable it is though. One thing is that it doesn't say that the ones on that list are the only new models.

    Down in the other High Elf Rumours thread (link) where I posted this stuff a couple of days ago there are pictures of the plastic hero kit. Again, the source is Harry. It's the same sort of kit as the Empire and Orc ones, there are parts for two heroes, one mounted and one on foot, with the option of making one the BSB. It's looking quite good.

    Yes, I'd seen that. I think as it stands its about 20% larger than the O&G (or was it Empire...or are they the same size anyway?), and it may or may not have the pictures section yet. If it doesn't it'll be one big army book. That makes me happy!

    Looks good, High Elf players in my area have no reason to whine now, and my Dark Elves will beat them all the same. I want to know more about the Strike First rule, that seems retarded if it's the way I think it is. I would think if it was someone with equal int. they strike first, even on charges I suppose. I might have to dust off my eltharion army and have some rounds with it.

    Is the Stoic rule still in the book? I didn't see anything on it.

    Exactly. And some people think they are too awesome. You'll see horror stories told about the flying circus pegasus knight army.

    Essentially, one unit of Pegasus Knights on its own is very good and you'll rarely see a Brettonian army without them (at least in semi-competitive environments). The fact that they move like fliers and charge just as fast, plus with lances from the top of flying mounts alone makes them impressive. However, add the option to take an entire army of them and people will really go to town. They could've made the Drake Rider unit for High Elves without the potential to create the RAF but instead they've chosen to forego them entirely. Not that I really mind, as I don't play High Elves, but that's basically what it boils down to.
