    Re: High Elf Rumours

    The only thing that I think speaks for the credibility of EarlyBird is the simple fact that I can't imagine what kind of weird individual wastes his time and effort making up legitimate sounding rumours to troll the community a mere week before we find out for sure.

    With the Chaos Marine codex, we had people making up stuff on the actual day of release, so you never know. At least it's less annoying than those who make up rumours about things years into the future.

    In battle, the armies of the High Elves are a glorious sight to behold. [...] With a mystical grace and agility that is incomparable to the lumpen, slothful gestures of lesser mortals, they cleave through the foe with spear and blade - their skill and speed a match for any foe.

    Ahh... always brings a tear to my eye to dwell upon the poor misfortune of the other races of our world.

    Pretty sure gnoblars, men at arms, state troopers and plague bearers have lower M than elf infantry and i said elfs not high elves there is no reason high elfs should move faster than wood elfs and dark elfs, in fact the skirmishing wood elfs and the raiding dark elfs should be faster.

    Again their m is the highest for their lowest unit. which means that no armies (except maybe skaven) have their slowest moving infantry units with with as high M as the elf armies. elfs may not be the fastest over all but they are the fastest in meanvalue. They have no slow units.

    So at this point the White Dwarf is likely done right? We're just waiting for someone to sneak into the basement with an old Nokia and send some grainy pictures our way?

    It has been done for 2 months. But you got the rest right
    We both read the rumour, day and night,
    but you read black where I read white.

    The rumour source doesn't have to be an enthusiastic HE player remembering the exact official name of the new unit to be considered credible. The user named "Best_Pone" who posted about the details of the new Eagle Chariot and the new Phoenix having a fire&ice option before that picture leaked called the new Shadow Warriors "SHADOW SOLDIERS" and the new Archer unit with magic bows having something to do with "-Avalon?". He also joked "Spot the non-HE player!" to explain why he's not familiar with HE stuff. This guy got vindicated a few days after he dropped his rumours. People get to take a peek at May's WD promoting the new HE somewhere or see a list of sales concerning the new HE and try to tell us the news of what they saw as best as they can. The new unit may be named "Sky Talons of Saphery" or whatever but the guy may just care to remember it as "Saphery Chariot". Rumour sources don't always have to be autistically meticulous about giving the full and correct names of the units.

    Regardless, I agree with you. Even if it's not quite right, it still seems reasonable, and it's not like we have more more to talk about any way.

    You do realise that was just a joke about GWs naming conventions, right?

    Re: High Elf Rumours

    I'm wondering how many people will eat our hats next month...

    I believe Harry and Hasting but remenber this is not Harryseer and Hastingseer. They`ve talked something about high elves but they didn't give something really accurate (real names of the units, all new models, rules... etc.). So other people is also welcomed in order to complete that task.

    I was not bashing any rumourmonger, just asking why a particular rumour was being taken so seriously.

    Re: High Elf Rumours

    Ah, so someone sent Faeit an identical list with the following appended:
    New Models:
    - Saphery Chariot (flying chariot)
    - Drake Riders (dragon princes)
    - Shadow Warriors
    - Phoenix
    - Guard of Avelorn (maiden guard or similar, not confirmed yet maybe extra option if you take Alarielle as well as 5th edition book)
    So Maiden Guard still on the table if early bird/faeits source is right.

    Wow, that flaming Phoenix looks much better than the last pictures. Quite liking the chunky new characters as well.

    Re: High Elf Rumours

    Dear god. I approve.

    The Maiden Guard are fanastic, not sexualised, sensibly armoured and gorgeous. Ditto for Alarielle, I can forgive the bare thigh, it worked for the Romans...

    Color me impressed! This stuff looks great!

    I didn't think I'd every purchase more warhammer models, but I was wrong.
    What a horrible night to have a curse.

    Thanks a whole bunch. Apart from the Warrior Mage guy everything looks great.

    Re: High Elf Rumours

    thank you Aegon!!

    Some really awesome minis in there, though I'm not keen on the oversized headdresses so many seem to have...

    Glad to see the unridden Phoenix is officially an option!

    I will reserve further judgment till I have time to pour over those pics some more! can't wait to get 'em in my hands!
