Next is the Scorges. As I don't see them making models for them anytime soon and the old models no longer for sail, converting these will be a must.
Ebay them for now, but saying that they won't get any models soon is a mistake, first rumors said they were going to be in the first waves, possibly in wave 1,5
Sicne now they're gone, even from the GW website, my guess is that they'll be in wave 2 => januray. Can you wait that long? Or not?
Same goes for a lot of other models, I'm guessing msot models GW removed from their side and havn't come back will be mostly included in wave 2.
Talos and heamonculus should come back in wave 3.
Wave 3 is coming in summer at the latest, I'm just goign to wait before making any conversions, a few months waiting is ok for me.
Some models might come even later, but I'm sure I'll be busy enough.
There are 3 models I'm concerned they won't get any models:
Voidraven, Razorwing and Venom. I'm sure that all or most other models will get their cool models, just have to wait patiently.
I see absolutely no rush in converting the non available models, it's actually good that they come in different waves, this way you have the time to get some assembling and some painting done, but for most painters like me, a few months isn't enough. I'm sure I'll still be working on the new dark eldar minis in two years. You guys make it sound like half our codex won't get any models, but GW is clearly proving they are giving our army some love. Some conversions can be made, like squad leaders, etc... but making entire units sounds pointless at this point, especially when the second wave is only 1-2 max 3 months away.
