In Germany, it is 2nd April onward. Should have been 1st April for Harlequins ;)

Harlequin models, correct? This isn't a, "Surprise! Harlie Mini-Codex!" announcement, I take it?

I don't follow release dates and stuff... what's with the massive delay on these models?

Yeah that would be models.

Delay because... they didn't have time to make them, or maybe they wanted us to buy the classic ones? Probably lack of time. They can't make everything all at once.

No, Harlie army list entries are in the Eldar Codex. The models have been held over from the main Eldar releases.

You guys don't happen to know the state side release date do you? A friend of mine (who is just as new to game as I am) nearly started drooling when he saw them in the codex.

No.
I don't like them, i'm not saying that i could do better i just don't like their look.

I think it is April 14th for Harlies also here in the U.S. It might be a different date, but it will be aorund the early April release date

I believe the release has possibly been held back to conicide with the Apocalypse Expansion release (just like how they held back some Tau stuff to release with CoD).

the photo in the white dwarf shows all 8 of the new models including troupe master and shadow seer ,i have to admit the paint job on the seer is exceptional and i have to say one of the best and original i have seen in a white dwarf in years

I've heared that Apocalypse is just now in Play-testing. If so, this couldn't be the case. If not, I could see that as justification.

I'm still kinda miffed that they didn't put pics of the troupe master and shadowseer in the rulebook, as im not a big fan of WD (at least not any more) and the pic here on warseer of them aren't that good. maybe I'll take a flip through WD next time i stop by my local shop...

The release was held back so that eldar players get to feel that "oh shiny" feeling twice. It is not anymore complicated than that. In GW the sum of parts is greater than the sum of the whole :)

A basic Marketing principle. Aggregate the bad points, seperate the good. People would rather lose $20 once than $10 twice, and they'd rather find $10 twice than $20 once.

you know considering that this here forum only exists because of GW and all they have done over the years ,its sometimes a very long and hard search to find positive words from people here . the harlequins are been released in april to draw a line under the eldar release and looking at those models its a very nice line that jes goodwin has drawn for us .
will we see a harlequin only army list ?i doubt it ,they fit just nicely into an eldar army as something a little different from the rank and file .

No-one in this thread bashed GW...

Yes you said in another thread. Isn't it against the forum rules to advertise such?

Just been on the GW France site:

Death Jester/Shadowseer/Troupe Master 9 Euros each
6 Harlequins boxed set 25 Euros
Blister packs of 2 Harlequins with Kisses 11.50 euros
Blister packs of 2 Harlequins with Fusion Pistols 11.50 euros

There's also mention of a "Cerastes Eldars Noirs". I can't find out what "cerastes" means (except there are references to snakes) but the other words mean "Black Eldar". It's a box of 10 metal models for 30 euros. Does this mean there are new Dark Eldar models??

Harlequin release and the repackaged DE Wyches Box were already posted in the "April releases" thread.

I told everyone back in the day that "New Coke" wouldn't last and that, before long, Coca-Cola would go back to the old formula. No-one believed me, but look at them now.

Your thing is cooler, btw.:)
