Sorry i cant help you i won't mind knowing them either because i have a few models at home which i bought just before they finished with the second edition, the guy in the store must have seen me coming that day. But as far as i know they have no rules for them in the 3rd edition and from what i hear they rocked in 2nd edition. Ahhhhhh well all we can do is wait in hope.
a recent White Dwarf came with an Eye of Terror catalog and in it they had two missions, one with Arbites and one with Harlequins. The Harlequin Mission gave trooper characteristics and described how some of thier special weapons worked but they had no point values....
Well, I have the experimental codex, but if you want to get your hands on that you'd have to check E-bay, as it's no longer in print. You also can't use them in tournies I think, because the list was never made official (at least in 3d edition).
Well what do you know... check this out... GW put the thing on their site!
The Laughing God isn't the gd deciever! Nowhere does it say this! It's just some necron fanboys who want to believe that their "gods" are actually in control of everything. The Laughing god is the Eldar god of trickery and cunning. El fin.
I know it says the rules arnt official but they allowed them in the eot tourney as i used a solitare with my eldar, and my friend used a wholle army of them, they just sighned up for eldar or dark eldar(unless you used one as allies) as they would have either of those intentions in mind.
I have nothing to add to this thread to be honest, just to say that Harlequins are the business. They were the first unit ever produced for any 40k army that was fully contained, specified and moreover unique from any other unit in the field. They had heavy weapons specialist the Death Jesters with their own specific heavy weapons that only they could use (at that point Hvy ShuriCat or whatever it was with the shrieker ammo). They had an organised unit chart, High Avatar controlling a group of Avatars who controlled Troupes of Troupers (The actual spelling, to make them look like actors rather than soldiers). Dedicated Psychics (Warlocks with a boss Psychic called the Great Warlock) - bear in mind before then any character had a %age chance of being psychic (and it was high % with Eldar) with random-ish abilities so this was a novelty. Solitaires were independent characters with special rules. Just don't ask about the Harlequin's kiss, just too fine I'm afraid...
The best bit about the Harlequins though was the stories and snippets of fluff that they brought out alongside them though, combined with being some of the most expressive and most frequently displayed miniatures winning tourneys back in the day these were some special figures. Mythical you might say infact.
