    I think it's still doable. Take the Grave Guard and Greatswords for example. Both double up on weapons (more than double in the GG case) and double up on heads, and have only three unique sprues.

    You could easily have the three sprues with 5 bodies/legs, 5-6 of each of Halberds and Draichs, 5-7 of each head, plus banner, trumpet, sword, and perhaps cape for command.

    Then they could split them into two kits of 3 sprues each, too.

    I'm fine with the current single unit elite infantry box but i never put it past gw to stick as many things in 1 box with potentially making it a higher price (like the vargheist/big ghoul is a few dollars more than the single monstrous kits). It's also technically less design work if all the models share the same legs and bodies.

    Re: Some Dark Elf Rumours

    Sorry to bump this but given the issues with a certain allegedly discredited rumourmonger who shall remain nameless, I want to say that the only part of these rumours that came from him were that the Witch Elves were ugly. So can't complain about that really.

    Re: Some Dark Elf Rumours

    Just feeding into this thread regarding discussions on redoing core and dual kits the following upcoming release from Mantic:
    http://www.manticgames.com/Shop-Home...0-Figures.html

    Also, given the recent surge from Mantic with their "Twilight Kin" will be interesting to see who gets decent Witch Elves out first - GW, Mantic, or AoW?

    Come on GW, lets see a cheeky May release of plastic Witch Elves!

    Thanks for clearing that up, lets just hope the'll be stunning then.

    I'm looking forward to see GW's witches and AoW's female warrior thing kit, but mantic appears not to be in the same league as those two.

    Re: Some Dark Elf Rumours

    While I have much sympathy for Mantic (and their Twilight Kin have turned out to look better than their first previews appeared), I gladly pass them for probably any new Dark Elfin kit AoW or GW will (hopefully soon) produce...

    Re: Some Dark Elf Rumours

    Raging Heroes is also making some sort of evil female regiment, but they haven't provided any concrete details about the product yet, just the desired February release date.

    Agree, it's just interesting to see another interpretation of the Dark Elf core unit given some comments on this thread have said it needs jazzing up.

    Re: Some Dark Elf Rumours

    Just last night I thought about bumping this thread to say exactly the same Eldargal has. After reading that "confession" I thought "hey this guy said something about WEs!" and came here to see and sighed in relief.

    Anyway, Mantic is quite abysmal (for me, at least). Let's see what have Raging Heroes and AoW to offer, but if GW has its "awesome" hat on, they'll release something ten times as awesome as RH and AoW.
    Let's hope they have that hat on, and not the "let's ruin a concept completely!" one.

    Re: Some Dark Elf Rumours

    Yep, not a fan of the Mantic take on the Dark Elf look, although some better pictures might help. I will wait and see who produces a good looking Witch Elf unit first, then they can steal my wallet......

    Looking forward to the raging heroes girlies. For AoW, I hope they do more of a female gladiator unit than witch elf wannabe's. Actually, a mixed sex unit would probably be more useful for their setting, but I suppose they have to try to grab some sales from warhammer players to make money.

    Re: Some Dark Elf Rumours

    The whole fuss with ghost21 and his apparent 'confession' and later retraction that he made rumours up. I'm erring on the safe side and clarifying what came from him as most of these rumours were from another source as well, and corroborated with another rumourmonger.

    Wait, Ghost retracted his confession from the 40K thread? Where, if I may ask? Or did I misunderstand?

    Re: Some Dark Elf Rumours

    Oki-slash-doki, I have more Dark Elf rumours, from the same source as the first lot and also wcorroborated with a reliable rumourmonger:
    The rumours:
    -plastic monster, possibly a hydra, not certain its for DE specifically which isn't a problem with SoM scrolls of binding
    -plastic mounted character, possibly female
    -dual kit chariot (this was mentioned by others already)
    -plastic bolt thrower

    Witch Elves, Black Guard and Executioners also all with extra coroboration. Late 2013 still the most likely slot for release.

    A plastic hydra would be nice, the way GW are doing plastic kits it could really be big and dynamic. But they just Finecasterisated the old hydra (and the bolt thrower) so I felt this seemed a little odd. If the plasticKarl Franz/Griffon rider kit pans out it would be interesting to see if that impacts this rumour, a possible Morathi/Hellebron/generic hero kit? Just speculation. The dual chariot kit has been wishlisted/rumoured before, so nothing too new with that.

    For the record I consider myself a rumour dissemination facilitator, not a rumourmonger. As always don't believe it until GW announces it.

    Re: Some Dark Elf Rumours

    maybe a plastic hydra kit would allow them to include the variants they made a while ago, plus possibly a new type with a howda on the back - every army has to have a howda in there somewhere nowadays

    Re: Some Dark Elf Rumours

    OooooOOOOo, thank you, Eldargal. Rumourmonger or not, you make my day everytime you post here.

    A monster not specifically for DE could be a Kraken. With the "sea creature" rule in the BRB, you never know... Or even a Sea Drake or something along those lines. Still, a Hydra in plastic would be cool.

    The monster with rider could be either a Morathi (or Morathi lookalike) on a Dark Pegasus or a Hellebron or similar on a (decent) Manticore. The latter being less possible, IMO.

    Witch Elves, Execs and Black Guards are AWESOME news. I've been holding off on buying most of them because I quite frankly dislike working with metal, and well... I have been waiting for years for them to release decent plastic kits of them. Let's hope they don't drop the ball!

    The dual chariot, I still can't see what would be the other version. A light chariot pulled by horses? A heavier chariot manned by Black Guards? I sincerely hope it's not a Cauldron of Blood, because I'd love for the Cauldron to become a huge centerpiece like the VC Throne and Otherthing. Granted, it's still possible with a dual kit, but I don't think a chariot's the right thing to have a dual kit with.

    The Reaper is great news, too.

    And also I hope a few plasticlam characters will be inbound! Particularly Hags. Please.
