Welcome to Librarium Online!
I just love warp spiders, but i really hate the models, my friend did something really fancy with his but i lack that skill. so has anyone heard rumours about them, or a possible release date? thanks guys

To be honest though the models are old I still really like them and I do not think that GW has any plans to redo them any time soon.
IRON WITHIN, IRON WITHOUT!
I survived LO Chat thanks to: Karmoon, Rabbit, Process, Tossy and Meish.
For the most part I don't think that they are going to be doing too many models over again with eldar... Most of the new releases they were planning came out around the time of the coedx- this Christmas.

Eldar: 25,000 pts
Not in the forseeable future. Some dude over at WarSeer (IIRC) asked one of the top-guys (the one responsible for the Eldar line) at GW at the latest Games Day about it and he said that while the WS are old, they are one of the best sculpts and they actually sand up well to the newer range. He didn't want to change the way they look, but he mentioned that perhaps a few more poses would be good.
although they are not redoing the spiders soon, i hear they are the shining spears, making them plastic (easy to convert!), we will see how that turns out before i wish they will redesign other models.
But your point is correct. I spoke to him at GD UK about the Eldar range at some length. Jes likes the design of the Warp Spiders (as do I, though the poses are pretty poor) and if they ever do get a re-release (they are a low priority compared to plastic Wraithguard and new Jetbikes) they will likely be just new poses rather than dramatic resculpts/complete redesign.
Speculating though, I would be surprised if the design was completely unchanged as the Warp Spiders do have those "pepper-pots" on their jump generators which have long since gone out of fashion!
i was always hoping a warpspider pheonix lord may appear. Like he got lost on the warp and was transformed or somthing like that.
