Harlequins!
« on: January 29, 2015, 12:50:45 AM »
So harlies seem to be getting a book soon, and the rumors make them look fantastic!  I uh... I"m not familiar with how these rumor threads normally start or how much I'm allowed to post about what we know so far.  Thoughts?

Here is a link to a colour photo of the next White Dwarf: Oh no there isn't.

They don't look to be such a massive step up in quality as I had hoped...but that is without seeing them from 360 degrees. Also, the last sculpts are still lovely, and the fact that these are plastic makes me very keen to get my hands on them. Not sure about the Solitaire's face. I was expecting something else. Still a nice dynamic mini though.

From Faeit212, we can expect Harlequin Jet Bikes and also a dedicated transport. I'm figuring that we'll probably get a Shadowseer and Death Jester Clam Pack as well.

Really interested to see what the Jet Bikes and Transport look like.

My thoughts are why do the sites that I have seen this information on insist on calling it a rumour. Even though it hasn't been released yet I struggle to see how information taken from a White Dwarf can be called a rumour.

Also the problem with this type of "rumour" is that it encourages people to post pictures/links of White Dwarf which is a type of copyright infringement.

Harlies are getting a brand new kit, presumably plastic.  The Solitaire looks quite good, complete with a blocky holosuit illusion built into the hem of his overcoat.

They are getting a dedicated transport called the Starweaver, presumably it's a renamed Venom, which existed before Dark Eldar got their mini coup:



Will probably look something like this:

I'm not entirely sure why a link to a page hosting the scans is bad. It's not like I'm trying to host the scans here. It's the same trick every other rumour site is using to stay clear of GW issues. That said, I apologise if I brought any wrath down on this site.

For those of you wanting to see the new minis, go to Faeit212 or BOLS, or some such. Links in abundance over on those sites.

So the Harlequins are getting their own Codex eh?  Very good news indeed!  I always thought that they needed their own book.  And the humans get so many factions, it's about time the Xenos got some love.

And if the Militarum Tempestus can get a stand alone Codex with what is basically three units and two vehicles then I'm sure the Harlequins can too.

No wrath here, and quite likely no wrath from GW either. But it's forum rules, and we like to keep to the rules :D

Before watching this take off your 3D glasses, things are about to get real!



The kit that has been in production for many, many years is here.  And it has two riders instead of one, and it's for the Harlequins!  It's a safe bet that this is what will be used as the basis for replacing the ancient Eldar kit.

I am surprised by how flat the lines are for an Eldar kit and how the poses are boring and coupled with that Bullet blender or dongs or plasma grenades bolas.

Technically, we can't even repost rules that GW posts publicly on their website or that are given out for free, GW may do whatever it wants with its copyright.  This may be a scan but they can put black cellophane on their covers like porno mags if they that that vehement about their IP, though.  It's the cover, it's designed to be displayed in public.
