Dark Elf Sightings, Prices, Cover Art, and a Few Models


Dark Elf sightings are starting to increase, and I have collected several, including a pricing list, which shows 7 plastic box sets.


Please remember that these are rumors, and that we will not know anything for sure until the White Dwarf gets closer. All of these sightings are from Warseer.

The executioner swords look similar but obviously are improved with the CAD design.
The Black Guard halberds look a bit beefier in the blade part. 
There are designs on the trimming and edges of some of the armor for the Black Guard and Executioners

I spoke to a GW manager today and he said he wont know anything about the boxes officially until next week, BUT HE HAS SEEN THE DARK ELF ARMY BOOK COVER. So this is happening for sure at least. I know that's no surprise to us, but it was nice to get a confirmation.
He says the cover is very similar to the High Elf army book cover, except with a Dark Elf there instead. I didnt press him on it as to be honest, it's hardly relevant at this stage, but we know for sure this is all coming in October for sure

One of the resellers in my country put this price list up in their news section:
Plastic Dark Elf Warrior Box £30
PLastic Dark Riders/Warlocks £25
Plastic Blackguard/Executioners £30
Plastic Coldone Chariot/Scroungerunner £25
Plastic Cauldron of Blood/Blood Throne £50
Plastic Hydra/Kraken £50
Plastic Witch Elf box £30

GW prices might be higher, since reseller usually discount their stuff, and there are alot of stuff missing (like the army book for example), so this might be just guesswork by them based on rumours.

  1. Just so you know lion275 is a poster from the 40k radio guys. Even your last compilation is all info from him. He was very active on warseer answering questions concerning the pics. Big ups to him for that.

  3. Hmmm. Well, if we assume it to be truthful, I am a little upset at the core warriors being that price. I suppose it conforms to recent release prices, but Forsaken and Shadow Warriors were at least specialists. Not entirely sure I'm happy paying that for ten warriors (working on the assumption that this is the number). It would rather make them twice the price of my Empire state troops. Hope this doesn't seem querulous - I'm usually quite pro-GW!

    1. Sorry, what a silly mistake I just made, Forsaken are Core! Still, they're hefty and powerful in-game, which sometimes affects price.

    2. I suppose it depends on the options in the box, I wouldn't mind 'too' much if it comes with a load if lovely extras, I guess we'll have to wait and see. I'm also feeling more lenient as a large update to the Druchii is something I've been wanting since I started them as my first army 11 odd years ago.

    3. I also wouldn't be shocked if the boxes came with 16 or 20 dark elf warriors rather than just ten. They didn't redo any of the core high elf boxes, so it's hard to get a good gauge for what to expect, but I would doubt that they're only ten to a box for that price.

      Unless of course they expect that most dark elf players will use their current models and simply buy a few boxes to upgrade/add variety...

    1. Wrong website & a week to early

      But i agree. Things like "sighted" and "Coverart" tend to creat expectations of pictures.

    2. We had the first Space Marine picks a month before the WD was released... so saying "a week to early" isn't really true :P

      And Natfka generally post links to the pictures these days, when he gets the

  6. So if these models all do come in one wave, then Tyranids may be possible still for November.
