Default Dark Eldar Modles?

From what i have heard GW is planing on replacing a lot of the old dark eldar models (and who can blame them). Does anyone have any idea as to the extent of the replacements?

none, GW have NO plans to re-do the Dark Eldar anytime soon and they aren't on next years release list...

lol, here we go again, more "facts"...

That's funny Coralien because every other rumor I've heard says exactly the opposite. That Dark Eldar are looking at a late 2008 release, and that Forge World are even making models for them. You say they aren't, countless others say they are...I'm not one to believe everything I hear, but I think majority rules in this case.

Dark Eldar will be getting an extensive overhaul. The majority, if not all, of the models will be redone. As to when that release will happen, we're probably looking at this time next year. However, that's a long way off and scheduling does change so that's far from guaranteed.

Jes Godwin has been working on the dark eldar models for some time now. Originally they were going to redo the Eldar jetbikes when the codex got updated, but they couldn't afford to. The jetbikes he originally wanted to be a kit to easily transform into dark eldar jetbikes, supposedly. I've heard that warriors are going to more resemble the concept art (see the picture of the warrior in the big rulebook).

If you look back on the recent codex updates, GW has released around 7 new unit designs for each release, so we can expect the same treatment for the dark eldar.

Personally I'd hope they do a few better for Dark Eldar...the warriors are one of the few models I'd call good right now, maybe an updated sprue or something with new parts, but they should focus more on the other horrendous models. New lords (or a plastic kit), grotesques, wyches, warp beasts (seriously they look awful), scourges...

I think the Wyches should be all female.

....And naked. If they've got a 6+ armour save, I don't see the point of all the armour they're wearing. :P

At least a few are female, but none naked

I hope they make them similar to Wych Elves...

Anyway, I heard its a complete re-do as with Eldar... Don't know where Cor heard that...

I was told that GW is pulling most of the old stock and redoing nearly everything, as wel as (fingers crossed) dark lances in the boxes. From what I had heard the new releases were to be starting anywhere from May to November.
