Does the Deathjester make anyone else think of Blacksploitaiton movies?

Every time I look at him I want to go rent Shaft.

If you look, the Fire Dragon Exarch is holding a regular Fusion Gun in another Pic. The Exarchs apparently are getting at least 2 weapon options per box of Aspect Warriors, as the Banshee Exarch can be seen both with Mirrorblades and Executioner. Or at least the Dragon and Banshees get this option, not sure about the rest of the Aspects.

The Phoenix Lords are not being resculpted from what I have heard.

The thing is, if you notice, anything Eldar that was sculpted by someone other than Jes last time around is getting replaced. Dire Avengers - check. Banshees - check. Scorps - check. Reapers - check. Hawks are really the only exception here, and the Spiders are not being redone since Jes did them already, same as with the WraithGuard.

I am certainly getting a squad of Harlies now, and despite having scores of 1st edition Aspects, I will have to get some of these new ones. The Autarch looks good, any version. The Farseer looks to be getting all those arm varients in the box that includes the Farseer and a couple Warlocks.

I'm really looking forward to all these new models, and I will be saving my pennies for them.

Seconded, El Presidente!

It does seem really odd that the older (better) Night Goblins are not even, what, 5 years old (?) and being replaced with these sub-par, mostly single piece models. On one hand, it's nice that all the Night Gobbo options are available in the box, but could this not have been done with a new accessory sprue added to the current Night Goobo box?

As far as the Autarchs go, I think that the head is going to be separate, so the head facing forward pose doesn't need to be the norm. The second Autarch with the mandiblaster helmet is certainly not a single-part mold for both the head and the body - that finial direction on top of the helmet proves that, I think, since its at an angle from the general front-to-back mold we can expect on the body. The first Autarch that we have seen is most likely headless, with the banshee or mandiblaster or plain helms being options.

Although there is a multipart NG AND Spiderrider box being released

I haven't seen the new spider riders' sprue, so I cannot comment on them, but the new night goblin box isn't really multipose. The bodies and heads are one piece and the arms are seperate. The shields and shield arms are one piece.
The only real freedom you get is angling the arm up and down (and side to side if you're willing to use minor gap-filling sculpting).
Compare this lack of flexibility to the current night goblins who come in 6 pieces when armed with spears/shields.

I think that I wouldn't be quite so cheesed if they had made the heads and shields seperate. I bought a box of the new plaguemonks a while ago and despite the one piece bodies/legs, they're fantastic models. The night goblins take it a bit too far IMO.

Oh I agree JoJo, the new semi-multiparts are a slowed concept for modeling fans, but at least they're not so much of a regression that we're forced to endure the once piece plastics of yesteryear.
