    Dark Elf Rumors (rules only)

    so this is what i obtained from a person who went to a seminar...
    - +1 At on the Charge + Hatred are the army Wide special rules
    - aparently Black Guard change to Special and have stat increases akin to Swordmasters
    - Executioners lose KB and gain a new nifty ability against Armoured foes
    - witch elves have the ASF ability + poison
    - new spell in the Dark Lore akin to the frenzy spell in the skaven book
    items are changed quite a bit
    - Cold ones (the mounts) gain +1 attack and have a possibility not to have stupidity
    - Dark Riders cheaper
    - a new monster as a rare choice
    - RBT is still a Free choice unlike chariots
    - harpies are cheaper
    - Sorceresses have an ability having to do with sacrificing their bodies to do more casting power (dont know what he meant)
    - RxB's are St4 if standing still or 2x shots if moving...shoots like a normal bow if it moves

    i found this quite strange since no one else around here posted anything, so ill take it with a grain of salt

    I am also confused. +1 attack on the charge and hatred seem a dreadful combination. However, it could be.

    I'm curious about this new rare monster. Army wide +1 attack on the charge and hatred could really hurt. I'm curious about the changes to Black Guard and Executioners. The RxB's are going to be interesting now.

    too much not?

    6 points for a separman which is hatred and 2 attacks each... not to talk about executioners, WE or COLDONES!!!!!!!

    Re: Dark Elf Rumors (rules only)

    6 points can't be right. I mean, come on, this way Dark Elves can out-horde Skaven, while being better at the same time!

    who said 6pts?
    point price (as well as a price hike ) will be higher...

    Meh...these seem to be more of a tinker than a complete review of the army, although as someone who hasn't got his DE out for years I may be encouraged to play IF these turn out to be true.

    Most of this has already been seen or suggested in wishlists so I'm wondering if your source is entirely reliable. After you with the salt cellar

    Hmm, I'm not sure I like the sound of this. I'd still prefer 2 shots standing still rather than S4 against anything except anything with a 2+ save or toughness 5+ (or just Dwarfs ).
    Being able to choose between 2S3 or 1S4 would be preferable.

    What do you mean by "shoots like a normal bow"?
    Are you saying that even when firing two shots it only gets the -1 modifier for moving and not multiple shots? or are you saying that it gets all the usual modifiers, and therefore at least a -2 modifier to hit?

    I think that is what he was saying (hence the shoot like normal bow: S3).

    Re: Dark Elf Rumors (rules only)

    what do you think the new monster will be??? Given that all the previous ones are based off of greek mythology I'm guessing it could be a cyclops, chimera, or a gorgon

    Re: Dark Elf Rumors (rules only)

    Well there were none of those models in the old Rulebook... I think it would be a Cockatrice as they were there and are suitably evil

    How about a sea dragon??? I'm pretty sure they use younger ones to make the corsair cloaks so what about a fully grown adult one? If not large creature then more like salamander sized model with similar rules with beast masters handlers.

    Just an idea.

    Me I have similar tastes. I like to kill my enemy, take the gold and enjoy their women

    Interesting rumours. They don't really gel with the ones on that spanish site so obviously one or both sets is wrong. Too early for me to get excited about it because of that.

    There is some nice stuff in both sets though...

    Enough to whet my appetite.

    Could be a Scylla type sea monster, kinda like the one Perseus slew to save some beatiful princess and just like the myth mayb the dark elves sacrefice young maidens to appease it!

    Re: Dark Elf Rumors (rules only)

    Crap, i sold my dark elves last year because i assumed there would be no new rules for years to come..like it use to be.. The pain!! *sobs in a dark corner*

    I will take this lightly but might be interesting if half is true. Might have to start a new army then.

    Re: Dark Elf Rumors (rules only)

    I'm just gonna throw this out there: This morning the rumours that are now on the spanish site (and also dakkadakka) were removed as was the whole thread. It was asked to be taken down. These new rumours were not. I'm gonna have to say the first rumours were hitting a little too close to home and a little too far from release for GW's taste so they had them removed. At least that's my two cents. To be honest, Hatred + ASF unit upgrade assasins + upgraded Hydra + uber dark magic + armor piercing xbows + better cold ones = a damn hardcore DE army... all i'm saying is that a 6 wide witch elf unit with hag = 19 re-rolling poisoned attacks. Even knights can't really ignore that
