Ok, I just recently realized something.. there are 6 eldar ranger models, and the boxed set only includes 5. Where is this other ranger? Does it mean there will be blisters? will he eventually be a direct only model or what?

incase you want to know what model I mean, I'm talking about the one in fhr front middle:

I know hes not in the boxed sets, as I got 2 of them.. so hes either just a rare find.. or.. well you tell me!

I would have thought he was a conversion, but it looks too much different form the other rangers.

Well spotted, he's not listed on the UK Online store parts breakdown for the Rangers either.

Out of interest, where does the photo come from?

Have a look at the lower half of the sculpts, then you see, that there are always two upper body variants per lower body style, one each with and without helmet. So GW may have "ordered" 6 minis with two kneeling and 4 standing and three lower body variants to chose from for the final 5-mini-box. (and I would have chosen the same 5). And as GW has a tendency to use all sculpts some day, I would also expect a mail order blister sometime in the future, possibly during the Eldar release.

I'm going for a 'direct only' ranger option here
