    Re: Some Dark Elf Rumours

    Cold One Knights, Corsairs, Hydra, Assassins, Cold One Heroes and other Heroes, and Lokhir were released together. And then in Storm of Magic the Black Dragon and plastic sorceress were released.

    Re: Some Dark Elf Rumours

    Just checked the white dwarf from that release, which included:

    -Corsairs
    -Cold one knights
    -Hydra

    -3 new assassins
    -Dreadlord on cold one
    -Dreadlord on foot (with the pick axe thing. Greatsword came later)
    -Sorceress on cold one
    -Sorceress in swirly water stuff
    -Lokhir Felheart

    Re: Some Dark Elf Rumours

    For kits?
    None.

    They also released the Hydra in its current incarnation, but as metal, the Sorc on Cold One, Dread Lord on Cold one, Assassin (possibly a few variants, but I think the variants came in a wave a little later), Supreme Sorc (with the swirly stuff at the base), Dread Lord (with the ritual blade and baby dragon).

    Later we also got, Dreadlord on dark steed (i think as a BSB, although not sure if that's just what I bought it for), assassin variants, dreadlord variants (great weapon w/mini dragon, hand weapon in heavy armout, 2 hand weapon female).

    We've been sorely looked over in the unit kit department.

    EDIT: Wow, double ninja'd.

    When did GW release something? Was it plastic or metal? Who sculpted it? Come find out:Fantasy, 40K, LOTR, BFG, Blood Bowl, Epic, Inquisitor, Man O' War, Mordheim, Necromunda & Warmaster

    Re: Some Dark Elf Rumours

    That seems like a lot of things, but when you come down to it, the release of a heap of characters does not change your army too much. We desperately need units.

    And, to me, we need characters that don't suck. Most of our character minis are horrid.

    I love the Dreadlord with the hand weapon and shield with the baby dragon on his shoulder. More Dark Elf heroes with nasty little pets wouldn't go amiss but agree with the general consensus that it's the units that need doing.

    Re: Some Dark Elf Rumours

    taking with a manager today. said that he had heard a little bird talking about multiple monsters for dark elf handlers. so maybe we no longer only have hydra. but it could be dream from a GW employee. but if they did get more then it would be closer to the background then just a hydra.

    Re: Some Dark Elf Rumours

    Seems logical, as would allow for yet more Monstrous options for Storm of Magic. At this point, I would imagine he is wishlisting, but I wouldn't be surprised if it came true.

    Skaw's initial optimisim about Wood Elves being re-released in mid 2013 is slipping... Early 2014 ftw! [EDIT: Nailed it! ]

    Re: Some Dark Elf Rumours

    There were rules published in WD once for different varieties of Hydra like "Royal" Hydras or "Ice" Hydras etc. Could just be multiple types of Hydra in the kit rather than two entirely different units. Still, would be cool if they had an option for flippers to make a sea monster.

    plastic black guard and witch elves would be amazing.

    This would make sense for a plastic Hydra Kit. I hope they take inspiration from the warmaster hydra. It looks suitably large, unlike the current one which looks like a loping horse.

    Re: Some Dark Elf Rumours

    Also, i wonder if the chariot multi-kit could double as a cauldron of blood. Still trying to figure out how you could make the cauldron actually look portable and still really cool looking?

    Probably the same way you can make a warp lightning cannon and plague catapult look cool out of the same frame...

    Dubious Dan is dubious.

    Re: Some Dark Elf Rumours

    A Chariot/Cauldron dual kit seems likely IMHO. Maybe the chariot will become more Khainate, so the crew models can also serve as the Cauldron bodyguards

    Yes I agree, GW loves dual kits. However after seeing the coven throne/mortis engine and the Black Coach I would expect a plastic chariot, then a dual kit that can be the Cauldron and something else. Coven cauldron and kraken engine

    In twelve months, I expect to see "kraken engine" as a new unit on these forums. Cool ideas are the birthplace of fake rumors.

    It would need really good suspension to stop the blood bouncing out of the pot, unless the Druchii take to fighting on paved battlefields...
