I would love to see an Autarch that looks like the one on the cover. A new avatar too.. that one is way old. Jetbikes need a new look, not to mention warlocks and farseer jetbike models. Lastly, warp spiders .. talk about egg heads with ugly guns... I have been thinking of converting some warp spiders adding eyes to their helmet (aka like a spiders) and making their gun look more like something that shoots a cloud of wire.
What would you guys like to see?

Defintely Jetbikes. I also think that they could redo a couple pheonix lords.
The Hand that guides.
Fire prisms. The weight of the prism has made the model highly unstable for years. I'm not even talking about a complete model rehaul, it'd just be really nice if they started making the weapons out of plastic.
I'm gonna agree with the warp spiders, jetbikes, and the psykers on jetbikes. They're way overdue.
I'd like to see a plastic superheavy model for us. It was a given that the Baneblade would be the first one to be released, and I'm assuming that there will probably be a Thunderhawk or something similar in the near future due to how popular marines are. I seriously doubt that they'd release one for us anytime soon, but a revenant titan or a scorpion would be sweet.
I doubt there'll be a new avatar as Forgeworld have recently done 2 versions.
Jetbike pyskers - yes, yes, yes.
A plastic Autach with all the possible add-ons may make sense as they did something similar for the space marine commander
I could see them go for some plastic flyers, such as nightwings as opposed to the Scorpion (which is a bit of a one trick pony with only a twin linked pulsar and shuri cannon)
OK - Jetbikes ...the current ones look a bit too "buggy" ...and damn it ..I hate the helmets on the riders ...they look like the klu Klux Klan - It's not a good look. It would be cool if they could take some of the styling from the Vyper and apply it to the Jet bike. It needs to be more elegant.
Avatar - I know that forgeworld have done several of these - but as I have a family and a life, I'm never going to be able to rationalise spending £50 on one model. The GW is a bit ...well rubbish. It's meant to be the living incarnation of a god - but it looks weedy next to a dreadnought.
Shining Spears ...don't have any of them ...but they look pants. A better pose would be like the Dark Eldar Reaver pilots.
@Vonfluff - you may get your wish about the jetbikes....
new eldar jetbike - Google Image Search
I don't know if this is a fake or old news though but that is one of the newish Ork trukks in the corner of one picture.

Provided it's not just a 'for-the-sake-of-it' prototype; That new jetbike is exactly what I'm talking about - elegant, more 'muscular' and looks like it could break the sound barrier.
The rider was ten times better as well - pose was better (he no longer looks like a paperboy and he didn't have a pillowcase on his head.)
Bring that on!
While I remember - i think the harlies could do with remodelling ...they look (for the most part) ...erm ..dunno how to put this ...well ...GAY. I don't mean homosexual ...they just look really rubbish. I didn't like them when they came out. All this pogoing-karate rubbish ..I hate them. GW should have modelled them more on the wardancer type poses they have done for the Woodelves. Remember, these guys are meant to aggressively shred the enemy - there is little forward 'movement' in all but two of them.
Unfortunately that was a prototype of the 2006 GW convention. i don't think they'll be rolling it out any time soon as that was over two years ago. which sucks cuz as i orginally posted the jetbikes are my most tiresome eldar model. what's with the leather sleeveless jacket? and yea the avatar forgeworld did is nice but i have to believe gw can update it's models at least once in 15 years... especially with all the advances in technology we've seen of late. Then again, we do have to pay $45 for 15 yr old designs that require 20 minutes of filing before they can even be primed... *whine*
On the plus side, they do spur me to be more creative and converty.
Solitaire! Great Harlequin! And rules!
