Welcome to Librarium Online!
So I plan on selling or trading away my dark eldar force. I plan on using the money to directly into buying the new dark eldar when they come out. Being how we do not know when that will happen when do think would be the best time?
The reason for this is I do not want to be stuck with models that I cannot even use. Like with some rumors of no more talos which I have three of.
My gut feeling says I should wait to at least the first leaked pic of a new model.
What do you guys think?

If your concern is being stuck with models you cant use anymore, it seems you should wait until the codex actually comes out. I wouldnt start selling things because of a rumor.
(WH40K) Dark Eldar - (12,000pts) Sisters of Battle - (5000pts) Dark Angels -(3500pts) (WHFB) Dark Elves - (10,000pts) Beastmen - (5000pts) Empire - (3000pts) Wood Elves - (1500pts)
The reasons for not selling would be -
1. Expect the new range to be more expensive than the old due to inflation and I doubt that we will get the cheaper plastics for the entire range because of our low popularity (metal is much cheaper for low production numbers.)
2. Take pride in what was before, I do and really quite like my old range,
3. Selling or trading away an army that was never popular and deemed to have fallen out of the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down isn't going to even begin to recuperate the costs involved in the original purchase - so why sell?
4. Gamesworkshop has a habit of almost always designing new rules so that all the old models will have a part to play. Can you see Warriors being deleted? Or Wyches being turfed? And again if this were the case who in their right mind would buy them if this was historically shown to be true?
But if what you are really asking is when the new range is due to be released then no one knows and I wouldn't hold your breath waiting in the mean time!
I have heard VERY reliable talk of the new models being sighted (Ravager especially) but its the Codex that seems to be holding things back at the moment.
And I along with many others wish that GW would pre-release something before the new Dex is finalised.
In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves.
