Im thinking about starting DE but i dont know about it because there's rumors about it being discontinued. Another reason im not sure about it is that if they are gonna be remade or somthing like that so i'll have to buy all new models. So I dont know what to do. Any help with wats going on with the DE would help so i know if i should start them now or wait for to see if they're going to be Discontinued or wait to see if they're gonna get new models and buy the new models.
Any help would be great
Well it's worth pointing out that DE won't get a face lift for a looooooong time. I wouldn't hold your breath, we're looking at 2-3 years.
This means a few things. First, they won't be redoing any models or rules soon. This means current models will be standard for awhile and you don't have to worry about the whole army getting switched around by a new codex.
However, this also means that we don't get replacements for some of the uglier models (Mandrakes, warp beasts, wyches...) and we also don't get some of the extra love that our codex needs.
If you're really interested in starting them, now's a great time to do so. DE are readily available because nobody wanted them from the 3rd edition starter box, and you'll be able to use them for quite some time. As long as you want to play them now as they are, and don't mind ebay-ing or mailordering your army, I'd say go for it.
Thank you Mich. I think I'll start DE.
One annoying thing is the stores arn't ordering any more DE stuff, which can be annoying if your looking for something in paticuler (like a special character). However the local GW store had some great deals on mass DE models so ask around (I got 60 warriors for the price of a warrior box set). I think the DE are going to be redone in about a year or so... based on the fact that they are updating all the old armies, Ork, Eldar ect.

as mich said, you won't have t oworry about having to buy new models for a bit, but we do have some ugly as hell models . if you don't want your mandrakes and wyches to look icky, convert some dark elf fantasy battle models, since they look good and fit in with the dark eldar's darkness
1 year? i wish! i think i heard it would be about 2008 when GW redoes the Eldar.
