Default question about wraithguard models

Anybody know if the wraithguard models ever received an update, or if the current models have always been around? If they were updated at some point, do you know when?

Thanks

The Wraithguard models sold today, like the Warp Spiders, are the SAME models as they were first released. Shining Spears have had the same models since 3rd ed, but all other aspects have had new models made at least once (some 4 times).

there were the ancient 2nd ed (I think) ghost warrior models that are often considered a precursor to modern wraithguard but I believe these are the only models ever sold as wraithguard.

The Ghost-warriors were RT (1st ed) and even more stealthy little assassin-bots than heavy infantry - and the counterparts to the Spirit Warriors (now Wraithlords) which was a spirit stone controlled dreadnought (a normal dreadnought at the time was manned like a war walker).

GWs had a basic (ranged) weapon mounted in their heads (shuricat, flamer) and either two powerfists or a powerfist and a chainfist. They could only be spotted if the firer was within his I stat in inches - and only by natural vision (so SM auto-senses couldn't see them) or tendril sensors (which meant that you were in their face already).

On the Shining Spears: They had a unit entry in 2nd ed Eldar codex (so did the vyper) but no model was released for it/them at the time.
