In this case, the Dark Eldar release could be big enough to cover both weeks though.
But announcing Wracks, Grotesques and a Chronos walker as "Murderous Skies" is a bit weird.
We will see.


That's because only one of those things is in this release. Frgt/10 confirmed the following:

Talos/Cronos
Scourges
Venom
Razorwing*
Voidraven*

All of the above in plastic, although I think he later said they'd pushed the Voidraven back as they'd had trouble with it. It's easy to see why a Razorwing, Scourges and Venom would be 'Murderous Skies.' He also suggested that Wracks, Grotesques and the Court of the Archon had been done in metal and then cancelled with this rumoured resin/metal switchover though I'm going off memory there and can't verify since Warseer is down.

I still assume that there will be a metal/whatever release for Dark Eldar, and that it will include wracks and Grotesques and the retinue.
AFAIK the first whatever miniatures will be released in July for the magic expansion.
But we will see.

The Chronos is as much a flyer as the Razorwing is. Just sayin'

As far as metal Wracks and Grotesques... if Tomb Kings were getting any metals they'd have been announced by now, right?

The other models are coming out at the end of summer; confirmed by another rumor monger...(can't remember his name)

According to rules, both Talos and Chronos are non-flying, non-skimming monstrous creatures, although according to background text the Talos is mostly skimming and the Chronos seems to be mostly a walker (insekt like). BTW ever seen an aircraft "move through cover"?

And I think, we will get metal blisters for Tomb Kings with 2 weeks preorder announcement, the ones featured in the army book (characters and possibly Ushabti).

I was going to use them, but i found that they were going to be to big and make it top heavy so i'll use something smaller, along the lines of sentinel autocannons ar stubbers.

back ontopic, i wonder what the kits will look like? i hope GW didn't mess them up to bad :S

Thanks for the pic. Clearly "Murderous Skies" is NOT "Wartorn Skies" and the advert clearly refers to the Dark Eldar releases in June which GW already announced in teasers several weeks ago. Finally, here's an ad that hints possibly about at least some of the specific models included in that release. Perhaps conversation on that White Dwarf ad should be in the Dark Eldar thread from this point forward.

You're welcome
And certainly "Murderous Skies" is a hint on ground troops being released

I get the feeling that GW's market research budget allows them to pay one flunky to start rumors on various free forums, then track the comments and report back to GW HQ on what would be popular.

Don't mount them on a Chimera, mount them on a Manticore for a much better result. It has the correct turret afterall, just the wrong weapon system.



This guy didn't do a perfect job either, but you get the idea. I would mount the guns vertically on the sides of the turret, instead of somewhat horizontally as this guy's done.

That looks good! I bet if you're doing that you could make the Eagle rockets and the hydra guns interchangable as well.

Wow, Therion! That is a brilliant conversion. And I imagine Praxiss is right - you could totally use some magnets to make it hot-swappable with the rockets.

If that were the case then "What the people want" would come out about 3 years down the road. It takes a long time to get this stuff out; a lot of the Dark Eldar concept art says "2007" at the bottom of it. Also, if GW catered to every whim we'd have titmarines, and that's literally the worst thing.

BrassScorpion: I call you out on that bet, again. Flyer rules by end of August. One $35 boxed set. What do you say?

EDIT: That's a _friendly_ bet, btw! It just seems more fun to raise the stakes between the optimistic believers (like me) and the more vociferous naysayers (like yourself).
