New Archon Model Found


Reading through several forums this afternoon, it seems someone has found a new Archon. Not sure I like it yet, but early images generally dont make a great first impression.

Crappy Pics of the new Archon (2nd is a kitbash):


Of course there looks like there might be some issues with the leaked images, so an alternative place to see them would be here

  1. Is that a cap of human skin?
    Baaahhhh!
    Looks very much like VC to me.
    Dont like the Pose either. Not very Commander like.

  2. Hmm... I think I can work with it. The more I look at it the more I think I want to make my Duke Sliscus.

    1. Looks good for the Duke but sort of crappy for a regular Archon

  3. Pirate-ish static pose: check
    Skin cape: check
    Blaster pistol in the kitbash pic: check

    There might still be hope for the Duke...


    I know... I'm in denial... ;_;

  4. Look very close to the battle report dark eldar army picture - lower right corner. You see a model among the wyches - A succubus with a spear and agoniser. It could be a new model. The pose looks like she is running. What do you think? Succubus model no longer on GW store.

    1. I pointed that out to the Dark Eldar Facebook group. It's either a new model, or a conversion from a Dark Elves Witch Elf from Fantasy.

    2. Old pewter succubus had an agoniser and spear.

    3. It's a completely different pose, head and agonizer.

    1. I like the new pixelated look that GW went with for those models. Very avant garde.

    2. I mean...this is just a ridiculous leap of faith lol it might be a new pose, but this super close up, super pixelated image is not enough to base that assumption on right?

      We know for a fact we're getting a new archon and yet the archon of yesteryear is still up on the site. The fact the succubus is not available online doesn't mean a new model, but I'm hopeful! Just wish we had more concrete evidence

  6. I actually think he looks pretty cool. Especially the second pic with the spear and blue face plate

  7. Images from araceress aren't working for me. Dang!

  8. The first pic looks like someone took half of the new haemy and just took odd bits to convert it. The second looks straight-up like of a pretty crappy conversion of standard bits as well. Not convinced those are "new" archons.

    1. Threllen look at the sample pic of the collector's edition as well - another image of the archon with blast pistol and husk blade, but with sword arm out stretched. It is very much, 100%, a new model.

      Delete
    2. Oh I'm not arguing that there aren't new archons at all! There definitely will be. But a lot of the pictures I have been seeing are definitely partial conversions and you can tell they aren't just a new kit. So I'm still waiting to see what the new one looks like out of the box before I judge it.

  10. Aren't those ogryn conversions in the background? Looks like it might just be a photo of someone's collection, including conversions.

    1. Then why does both the "new" archon and the one that is kitbashed have the exact same cape?

      Delete
  11. Just tell me straight. Is Vect in the new codex?

    ReplyDelete
  12. I like the old huskblade Archon better.

  13. Raiders are now transport capacity 16.
    Ravagers gain transport capacity 6.

    1. where are you getting this!!!

      Delete
    2. Thats...very unlikely. Is this confirmed from the WD?

      Delete
    3. Ive searched for any other info on this, and have not found any yet.

      Still digging though.

  14. Not a fan, looks very static and boring, Reckon you could kitbash better, hopefully better photos will prove me wrong.

    1. Couldn't agree more. Could convert a better archon from dark elf plastics frankly.

      Delete
    2. I prefer my current metal archons from last release more. Those can be kit bashed quite well and have a way better cloak/pose
