They're nearly here. The days and hours are getting less and less. We've been spoilt by lots of lovely piccys and rules snippets, so all things considered, which of the new models are you most looking forward to....

BTW - Multiple choices ARE permitted...

You forgot Eternal Guard. Can you edit the poll to add them? If so I'll vote after you've done that.

I can't wait for the plastics to be honest, I think the Glade Guard are still one of the best things in the range.

Gah - Damn these polls - I can only put 10 choices in....hang on , lets see if I can join Treeman and Treekin together to free up a space - hang on...

(sorry, first poll I've created...)

I added the Eternal Guard option. Hope you don't mind. ;)


Personally the release I'm looking forward to the most is the new Glade Riders box, or more precise, the new Elven Horses. Was waiting for new horses for ages and I guess once I got a few of them I'll take a *very* close look at starting a certain Cult like Elven army...

...a cookies for anyone who's able to name that certain army. Guess you'll have an advantage if you visited the old Chaos Wastes subforum on P.

Shame that the box will not get released until August. A box of cookies to the person who'll be able to get me a box of Glade Riders early. ;)

Hey, no problem :D

Just wish I could vote for Eternal Guard too... :p

Oh, and just how BIG a box of cookies are we talking about here...

Seriously, I'd pay for it of course (wow, how nice of me, eh? :D). Please send me a PM (http://www.warseer.com/forums/private.php?do=newpm&u=5) with the conditions and we'll see if we find an agreement here. I've got Paypal, so if you got it too, payment wouldn't be much of a problem. :)



*edit*
Waywatchers added too...

The waywatchers are what I am waiting for, especially after I seen the wood elf flyer with the mail order ones on the back.

Sweet mother they look amazing.

Thanks for adding the Waywatchers... :)

(Afraid I don't have any myself yet Sylass, sorry, but I'll have a word aroud a few people I know and see if any are willing to let theirs go... I'll let you know if so... (I'll be getting mine July 30th....If you still want some then, let me know :D ))

The girls of summer....

Nha, I'm looking forward to the new Glade Guard, Characters, Cav and Wardancers... and since I'm playing all elven armies (to a certain degree) I'm really looking forward to the new horses.

Glade Guard, the new Elven Horses, the Dryads and the Treeman.

As for the 'riddle' Sylass, is it based on anything other than Warhammer fluff? (Oh, and cats are evil by the way. :evilgrin: )

I'm probably gonna advance order the army box (if I can somehow get a way of ordering it online, no credit card) , and that comes with glade riders, so if you want 'em sylass, you can have them, i'll just pick up another box later on. no need to give me cookies, just pay the postage and box costs. however, it might not go off depending on how things pan out, so I'll keep you posted

i hope they make waywatchers just as cool as they use to be, if not cooler.

Without a doubt the glade guard (archers) are the Welvis's most in need of new models, follwed by (depending on who you ask) the dryads or gladeriders. The old waywatchers are quite nice sculpts, most of the rest of the old ones are simply dated by the sculpting styles of their day (which was what? 10, 15 years ago for some?)

No question for me, the glade guard, then the heros/mages, then dryads. The only new stuff i really don't care much for are the warhawk riders- whats with giving the hawks doofy looking masks?
Cheers,

I like the new warhawk (bird part), the hoods remind me of hunting falcons, makes them more controlable, like blinkers on a horse aparently

hmm... what the rider wins at control with the hoods,... is lost by the way he stands,...

I have to say again , they really remind me of Dark Eldar Hellion. I think they are sooooooooooooooooooooooo cool (as well as having the same name as a Judas Priest song).

I actually quite like them.

the modles themselves are very cool, its just the 'toilet squat' position of the riders that makes me go hmm...

Yes they remind me of hellions too

First of all i wait for the characters, some minis are wonderful.
Secondly for the war dancers.
Third are the wild raiders (my first horse painting after twenty years in the hobby).
Four the tree kins not for the models but because I will play this unit. ;)

Here's a pic of Orion from another forum.

Anyway I'm looking forward to pretty much everything but the Dryads at this point, they look better than I thought from early photos but I still don't think they suit my painting style well at all. Shame too, because they sound like a great unit.

what IS that Oion actually?.... some forest spirit or something?...

to be honest I allways thought he was an elf! :eyebrows:
(and don`t tell me he is "the king of the forest"... I wonder about what race he is)

Orion still looks rubbish then. No change there.
