We had the Uber Battlesuit, which turned out to be a massively large model. We have rumors of a massive Tyranid Dominatrix model in the works, and well, even the current Trygons and Mawlocs are massive. Is there another "Uber" model on the horizon?


Now of course, I suppose when someone says uber it could just be a really cool or strong unit, but throw that out, because we are not talking about that now.

The one thing I love.... is large cool models. Its one thing to have lots of infantry, but the big and dominating earthshaker cannons of 6-9 basilisks on the table....... Just awesome.

Make something even bigger..... almost titanesque..... and now we are talking fun

Please remember that these are rumors, and as always salt is required. Also a big thanks to Hastings for even more rumors along the 40k side of things.

Eldar, new flier, characters and a new uber wraith guard thingy.

Not the same thing, there's a huge wraith guard construct type thing (similar to tau) IIRC it has two builds (shooty & cc), also IIRC the actual wraith guard have some kind of CC build option.


And oh yes...... I will take 3

  1. I remember 3rd edition eldar( blue book/ red sword guy on front) wraithlords were so cheap for what they did most eldar players took 3

  2. I'm not sure I like this direction. Sure I've been praying for the tau one for years, but eldar? They are suppose to be one of the most subtle and tactically savvy races and a big robot just doesn't do that for me. I'd much rather they spend time fleshing out harlequins, adding a long range anti tank aspect and giving some sort of viable assault vehichle or psychic power gimmick (along with giving the neccisary buffs to other units).

    1. No big robots for eldar? Fluff wise they have always had titans, don't get much larger than that. Big robots fit the eldar in everyway, they are just elegant and not bulky like the Imperial or Ork design.

    2. Let me rephrase that, if it's revanent style then I will be happy. Phantom style? I will be very depressed. The most likely scinario isn't won't be close to either of the two (judging the general departure from Forge World in the other releases).

    3. How would you feel about this?

      "Eldar Spirit Warrior

      wraithlord-war walker mix, trygon base, running bird legs with hooves, huge scaled torso, a dozen poles extend from the back (like wraithlord but three times as much), left forearm replaced with massive lance, right hand holds extra handle on lance shaft or a three pronged swastika blade. Lower back, left shoulder and part of the left arm are concealed by an impressive cloak, head is surrounded by scaled armour plating, large gem at the front, doesn’t bend upward towards the end but downward, whole model leans forward, chest can be opened, female pilot inside"

    4. I'll know for sure when I see it. Hopefully it is fluid and graceful as upposed to static.

  3. Well the original WG had chainsword equivalents if I remember correctly.

  4. I had heard that a boxed set containing 3 plastic Wraith Guard (and a hybrid variant) are on the way for Eldar as well.

    News of some new 'bot wouldn't surprise me either. GW plans on having giant, $85 kits for every army, I imagine.

  7. Hey, Natfka, haven't we already seen both those models in the 3++ rumors last July? It seems like every Eldar rumor so far has only confirmed them.

    "Eldar Wraithguard/Cataphracts

    3 per box, look like old versions but have two rods for upper arms and thighs instead of just one, some have feet, some hooves, large fins at the back

    Cataphracts: float/fly, fluttering cloth pieces instead of legs, wing-shaped shields and spears, segmented/armored head"

  8. I'm curious to see if Wraithlords take a stat hit. Seems the WL is too strong with natural S10 and T8 when every other MC is being capped off at 6 for both. Would not be shocked if WL got dropped to S6 and T6 with maybe a 3+/5++ save, +1 wound, and +1 attack. Wraithguard will likely take a Toughness hit as well, maybe trade off for +1 wound or a 3+/5++ save.

  9. See, now this I can get behind. It makes perfect sense for the Eldar to get a big walker, not so much the Tau.

    It all fits: webway gates eliminate loads of logistical issues fitting a large biped into a vehicle for rapid withdrawal, the same applies for a rapid deployment. There's already the tech and lore for Titans and has been for ages so it can just be scaled down as needed and thanks to spirit stones there's not really a massive need for a pilot either but the unit will be immune to Wraithsight with one. All in all I'm well looking forward to Eldar too, now.

  10. If nothing else, i love these rumours for my allied detatchments. All the things Tau lack, eldar can give in droves. Really, though, the one model i want to see re done is the jetbike. The model has no presense, and even eldar armies in display cabinets at Games Workshop HQ main reception (not warhammer world) have dark eldar reavers as proxy miniatures. (Dobt work for the xompany, but had the privilage to visit recently on buiseness)

    1. Agreed!

      Eldar Jetbikes- 3 per box, the same pose as dark eldar jetbike, guardian riders with smaller helmets or bareheaded with lots of flying hair (80s heavy metal mane) and without backpack, vyper-esque smooth canopy, jet and wings have the same design as a falcon grav tank, underslung twin shuriken catapults and/or serpent-shaped bladehooks, some riders have axes with a hole in the blade

  11. As someone who is JUST starting a Harlequin themed army, this is kinda okayish news, I'd prefer a box of plastic harlequins, or a stand alone box, they seem like a good 'option ' to become a force of there own.
