The knotted fabric through the hole makes me think of that Khainite Warcry war band ..

I think that's just the handle extending to the pommel of the blade. You can see the four finger-wrapped fist around the handle, then handle, then pommel.

As for the fabric I agree, though I feel the Wyches in Drukhari have some flourishes like that as well. Of course I might just be wishful thinking here.

The glove and blade suggests Lelith Hesperax, but the ribbon looks a bit Harlequin.

Just a thought on Lelith being part of the Ynnari. Could Geedubs be working on a new battlebox with Ynnari on one side, and Lelith as an exclusive model? Out of all the Phoenix Lords and Aspects they decided to revisit it was the Ynnari-related Jain Zar and the Banshees, so maybe they are focusing on Ynnari models for the time being...

If the intent was to update the Craftworld range, would Asurmen have made more sense being as the Dire Avengers were already in plastic, and is the primary Phoenix lord? Hmmm.

That's a drukhari knife if it's anything 40k related. My guess would be updated lelith model to get her out of finecast.

Though it's got a lot of armor on to be lelith.

Drukhari or Ynnari (they don’t insist you change your style when you join) for sure but I don’t see Lelith joining the march of the dead (she’s so set on self-reliance she doesn’t even take combat stimms; praying to a god for power is beneath her) so someone new. Or, yeah, the Warcry thing.

If it is Ynnari though, it could be the first of a unique line of minis with the same hybrid style as the Visarch (just, yknow, way less face-y) because that sleeve doesn’t half look like it could have come off a Guardian…

Jain Zar and Lelith and the Midnight Sorrow Solitaire literally joined the Ynnari in Blood of the Phoenix (though you none can be legally played as Ynnari by the rules).

Do most Dark Eldar have nails that long though? They almost look like claws.

Makes me want to lean towards Skaven.

The hooks and barbs on a blade is something they've had going on for a long time too.

Poorly lit photos of my ever- growing collection of completely unrelated models!

Right behind you.

We know that we did not see all of the Shadowstalker warband for WarCry...it would be a bit strange to see more previews now but eh.

Might be Shadowstalker, might be Malerion's Elves, or might be Drukhari. The gloved look kinda rules out Skaven I feel.

Its either a drukhari dagger, or another drukhari dagger.
But what does that mean? Aeldari already had a release less than 6 moths ago. And that was even partly a drukhari release at that. Someone at GW HQ messed up.

what came out in January/February for eldar?

Despite what I said earlier, I think my hypothetical money is on it being a new plastic Lelith Hesperax.

EDIT: In fact, look at her current model's 360 view on GW.com. It's her left-hand knife, just held overhand rather than underhand and with the addition of a ribbon (which will be a red ribbon to mark her Ynnari alegiance). The 'thumb-claw' is actually the foremost spike on her bracer.

I feel this one almost certainly belongs to the Khanite Warcry band coming up. Could be Dark Eldar also I suppose.....but It seems unlikely to me.

It could be Malerion's Elves also, but I feel like we've had a glut of new elves in AoS in the last few years. Sea Elves, Tree Elves, Light Elves, Snake Elves........I have a feeling we won't get new elves for AoS this year or next with maybe an exception of a kit or two to expand one of the already existing ranges.

The hand is facing palm down, those are knuckle studs.

The blade is also a 1:1 match for all the other Dark Eldar knives.

I admit I was refering to the Phonix release but did not check my facts, my bad.

Thing is, I tried to make a joke. As this thread is mostly silly speculation anyway, I figured it would not do much harm.
It had to do with the notion that xenos dont get alot of releases, and the general understanding that a recent release for a non marine faction set them at the far end of GWs "to do list".
More spcifically, the "someone messed up" joke had to do with a semi serious conspiracy theory about GW having an (evil) policy in keeping xeno releases few and far between, thus "someone messed up" and authorized new stuff this close to their latest release.
Well explaining it, I realize it was perhaps not that funny or original.

I think it's Lelith, and I suspect she may come out with 'Ynnari rules'.
