Hey I'm thinking of starting Eldar soon but I heard somewhere that there is going to come a new codex for them and also new models. While I wouldnt mind buying the current codex and then the new one, I worry about the new miniatures, because I'd hate half of my army to be old minis and the other half new minis. This would look weird wouldnt it?
So do any of you know when the new miniatures will be out? Are there even some preview pictures?
So yeah basically the question I'm asking is "is it worth to start with eldar now or should I wait for new minis?"
You could get some basic stuff like guardians and start paint them, but I would wait with the other stuff since most of it get new models in october.
I heard from GW staff that some is coming out with the summer campaign, but the coxex and other stuff might not come out till September, or as late as Christmas.
Well that's really late since I was planning on spending time on Warhammer now that it's summer holidays and I'll have the time ...
I think that I'll just start now then, that is if I will, I still havent made up my mind because I also have some IG laying around.
The 'dex will be out in October, said by GW themself in a WD, along with most of the new minis. We will get new Rangers and a plastic Weapon Platform during the summer campaign as well.
Dont worry too much. I use older Scorpions because I hate the newer ones, or use dragon knights( basically high elf dragon knights on cold ones with a shuri/splinter pistol, have built 1 squad so far...just use Scorpion rules). Guardians, Falcons, wave serpents and vypers will stay the same and the aspects will be close enough to do no harm. Only big changes(model wise) will be war walkers and wraithlords, and Avatar.
Paint up what you think looks good and dont worry about the rest; its fun not a job...
id go for vypers, guardians -minus platforms and the grav tanks, avoid most else, in another month the new platforms and rangers will be out to keep you busy anyway, if only we had patience

I'm thinking the other models are just getting asthetic changes at most that you might not like anyway.
And a number of models like the vehicles and apperantly warp spiders aren't even getting new sculpts so you're fine getting them.
Maybe get some fire prisms(make them into falcons for now) get some scorpeons(be a biel tan list) and maybe get some fire dragons and a farseer and have yourself a nice 750-1000 pt army and adapt it as stuff comes out.
