Following the current eldar rumors we have one that is being resurrected. Apparently some time ago.... 2 years in fact, a new Eldar Avatar model was seen and discussed. Even then it was said that a codex was a long time out, and now perhaps that time is getting much closer. This was the post over on warseer that was pulled out of the graveyard from 2 years ago, hoping that the time is getting closer for a new codex.

It is very likely with the current rumors that the Eldar are still a year out. Current rumors have them as the third codex of next year.

These are rumors and an old one at that. Give it some salt.

I am, at this very moment, holding a sculpt of a new Eldar Avatar. I am told the Avatar is being looked at to go to production as a plastic kit containing all options. And will be released with the future Eldar Codex. When, you ask? I have been told, "Not for a while." and "When its done."

Specific changes I note:
Does not look like FW version.
Avatar's head is more expressive.
Molten-y look is much more impressive. Bits of fire are evident.
Bloody hand much more blood angels may have been an inspiration.
Headdress is more warpstone, elegant, vs current boxey glyph look.
Lots of little details within the's hard to describe, but its a lot of small detail.
I'm told it will be able to be assembled in various poses, despite the detail.

This one is oversized, so its hard to just scale, but I'd guess he'll be about the same height as a wraithlord, maybe a touch bigger.
