-Warriors and Wyches are troops.
-Expect new units.
-Harlequins are in.
That last one I heard a some time ago, think 2007, but hadn't heard since. I'm going to be very happy if its true. Also lance/melta?!? First I've heard of this. Of course this is Dark Eldar so take with a handful of salt.

Why does my mechanised guard have a bad feeling about this?

I don't play dark eldar but I want to see what GW makes of them.

On the one hand, Dark Eldar sound like something that will scare the pants off of me. On the other hand, we may have found a counter to Leafblowers.

Lances galore isnt a new thing - we can already have over 40 lance weapons in a FoC

Lots of poisoned weapons ranged and combat - already exists (unless we get more, which would piss off nid players)

Expect new units - I hope so - there are only like 10 different models!

Warriors and wyches are troops - well, you can take one or the other, and, if your opponent lets you use detachment rules, both. Personally i think wyches and warriors competing for troop choices would be bad, unless they bring out another elite choice worth taking.

Harlequins? laughing god of evil - cant wait.

Here are some other rumours i have heard.

[box]Talos getting a much more sane weapon
Raider armour values 12/10/10 open topped
Ravager 12/12/10 open topped
Mandrakes have rending, and have rules similar to lictors
Lords have higher leadership
Haemonculus in squads
Scourges rethought
Warriors rifles "assault 2" weapons
Warriors and scourges may choose between splinter rifle or splinter pistol and ccw
[/box]

And i cant wait - if its anywhere near as deadly as the BA codex, we will be a force to be reckoned with!

I'm getting both excited and worried. Excited that they might finally release Dark Eldar, worried because I can't exactly afford to go buy a 2000 point army on the spot like I originally wanted to do when they were finally released.

Yeah I've been on the other side of that, its not fun. I wouldn't be surprised if the cost of dark lances went up.

I thought the Raider/Ravager AV upgrade was speculation. Hmm I guess we'll find out. Warriors getting assault 2 sounds interesting. Sounds like Guardians who know which way to point their weapons. Haemonculi in squads sounds evil, especially if they still get their APd6 flamer.

This could be the only army I start collecting right after release, almost started them back in 3rd edition. I'm waiting to see how they turn out.
