Hi, I've just been reading through the war gear in the DE Codex, and a lot of it is pretty awesome. But I have a feeling when the New dex finally comes out hey will nerf/remove/massive price hike a lot of it. Things i think are particularly likely to suffer this fate are:
Scissor Hands (mostly because wounding on a 2+ But i absolutely LOVE this weapon)
Stinger (My personal favourite ranged weapon ever, But It has rather unusual effects, and confuses everyone i try to explain it to. Also it wounds on 2+)
Poisoned Weapons (I don't think anyone really has a wounding on 2+ weapons anymore)
Wych weapons (They'll stay, but probably wont be as good or will cost too much to be practical)
Agoniser (they'll prolly raise the cost)
Punisher (I doubt they will, but I'm just adding this cause i really hope they don't, its pretty much the only thing that thats us affect things we hit lol)
Combat Drugs (they'll probably remove some of the better effects)
So, am i just going crazy? Or are our weapons at risk?
(I think that anything poisoned is definetly gettin nerfed or massive price increase...)
Edit: Also soul seeker ammunition.

Dark Eldar - Everyone stole Our 2+ Poisons
Dark Eldar being nerfed in any way is very unlikely, to be honest. The way more recent codices are now, if anything Dark Eldar will gain bigger and better wargear and choices. Some point costs may change, and some rules may be swapped out (most probably for the better), but for the most part, I doubt Dark Eldar players will have any reason to fear the codex update when it comes.
Seriously, the gentleman above me is beyond correct - just look at JotWW. People argue there is not a codex creep but seriously, take a look at the last few books and tell me they aren't over the top.
Dark Eldar will be swimming in Dark Lances with their new book. It wouldn't surprise me if we got a Dark Land minigun at the rate 40K is headed. I would expect combat drugs to get a major overhaul as well, in the best way possible. Also, dual wielding agonizers!
The point is that Dark Eldar, with the current state of 40K, have nowhere to go but up. Both in terms of gameplay, and in price.

I would personally like to see a reversion back to the past with some things, like consolidating into combat and charging after rapid fire, even though thatís more to do with the core rules at the moment, I would like them to be Codex specific exceptions to 5th Ed.
And a straightening out of the kinks, whatís with an Archon who has BS6 and can only take a piddling splinter pistol? Either drop the pointís cost or give him access to the entire armoury including the Destructor! Itís not like it will be out of character in the brave new world of 5th generation Space Marine Codexís.
So I am for making what we have workable firstly, then ramp it up to be even with what else is available.
In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves.
they're going to invent frostblades for them
On the other points I can almost see what you mean (except a punisher is no where near as good as a relic blade for similar points). GW has done odd things with prices of weapons, but the soul seeker I'm really not sure on.
Dear Game Developer,Caps-Lock, its like cruise-control for AWESOMENESS!
Rock is cheese, Paper is just fine
WWP and other Dark Eldar how to
Rapid fire is probably going to be a thing of the past for DE. They will surely have assault guns. I'm thinking 24" range for Warriors is probably going to go down to 18" with 2 assault shots.
