Next Week Dark Eldar Possibilities, Vect, Succubus, Covens, and a New Archon


Yesterday we saw that the White Dwarf gives us the back page hints of "The Nobility of Commorragh" for next week's releases. We also saw what is very likely to be a new Archon model, and that the Archon limited edition codex includes a Haemonculus Covens Supplement. 

This definitely gives us a few items that may be released next week.
1. New Plastic Archon (shown from leaked images)
2. Haemonculus Covens Supplement (revealed as part of the Archon edition codex)

I would imagine that there is not going to be a fourth week for Dark Eldar, although if there is, its possible that the Covens Supplement could be released in a fourth week. After all, the models that we are still expecting to see is quite a large list for one week. 

A plastic Succubus. 
The old model vanished off the GW webstore a week or so ago, and a new very blurry image has shown what may just be one. So its very possible that a new Succubus model would also come next week along with the new Archon. Here is a link to that horribly grainy image...

Asdrubael Vect
All rumors point to him becoming the Dark Eldar Lord of War in the new codex. Without a model it would be very unlikely that we would not get one this time around, and of course everyone is dying for a glimpse of the Dais of Destruction, Vect's cool ride. So would next week's releases include Vect? Most likely, but we will see. 

So here is what is possible next week.
New Plastic Archon
Haemonculus Covens Supplement
Plastic Succubus
Asdrubael Vect both single model and Dais of Destruction

  1. I would really love a dais of destruction. It would open up the gates for an apocalypse size force for my DE force.

  2. Well there's pics of the Voidraven floating around

  3. It will be interesting to see if the Revenant Titan is included as a DE LoW choice, since it is after all currently so via the escalation expansion book.

    1. I think they're only going to put actual gw plastic kit lords of war in codexes. Keeping the forgeworld models gro escalation/imperial armour etc.

    2. Yeah but then you've got Gazkghull Thraka or however you spell it for Orks (finecast) and GK McPaladin (whatever his name is...brain is fried) for GK, also a finecast sculpt. Actually SW are the only ones who got a new kit for their LoW.

  4. I don't honestly understand why so many people are expecting the dias...would we all love one? Absolutely! But frankly, there really hasn't been a reliable rumor pointing to this as a thing...just wish listing that has compounded until people forgot where they first heard the rumor.

    I would love to see a dias and vect model, and if it happens I'll buy one without a second thought, but that's a lot of releases (and 2 HUGE models) for a single release.

    Also the succubus...it looks (especially from that grainy, grainy picture) exactly like the finecast succubus. If I were the internet, I'd focus more on the pictures of the incubi in the background of the new archon pictures floating around to see if we can confirm them as plastic.

    Reference for the succubus, GW's official pic:

    1. The thought about the Dias is simply applying logic from previous releases. 7e has LoW's in the Codexes, and the only Logical LoW in this book is Vect and his pimpboat. GW's new thing is to either drop characters/units completely if they don't have models *or* provide them a model. It seems more likely in this case that Vect/Dias will receive a model.

      Because of this, I'd say it's pretty likely that we'll see it as the last week's release

    2. Those Incubi are the current ones as you can tell by the fact that a couple of them look the same.

      If Vect doesn't get a new model then he will be gone from the codex and that's unacceptable! It's like removing Commissar Yarrick or Marneus Calgar because Vect IS the big boss character for DE.

      I would hoe to god that he gets a new model but I have a horrible gut feeling that he is gonna get canned.

    3. *Hope... Although my version was more fitting for DE I suppose :p

      Also 2 big models in 1 release is not unheard of. Tyranids got the Harpy and Exocrine. Chaos got the Forgefiend and Helldrake. Orks just got 7 new kits.

    4. You guys have to keep in mind that it might be JUST a vect model, and no Dias - SW has been the only one that got a new LoW model, everything else has just been moving the current model to the LoW slot. Granted, vect doesn't have an available model, so seeing an infantry model for him wouldn't shock me.

      But I think its more likely that we get Urien moved to LoW, vect dropped from the book, and then once the 40k codexes are up to date and in hard back, splash releases for things like Vect and the Dias, new Incubi, and more for every army.

    5. That Succubus model is running and the agonizer is totally different. You add in the fact that the current Succubus model has been removed from the Website its a safe bet that a new one is coming.

      As for Vect his model is also gone from the GW site (no idea how long as I have never looked specifically for him before). I can't imagine them removing him from the book as other's have mentioned he is the DE version of Marneus or Logan. Baron, Lady Malays, Duke, Decapitator, sure, all dropped. Dropping Vect though would leave us with 2 special characters (Urien and Lilith) and no Lords of War. My mega hope is that the dias gets turned into a chariot and is something unique. I also hoped for redone grotesques though...so who knows lol

    6. Vect is the big bad for the DE. I doubt he is going anywhere. And i doubt GW will pass the opportunity to make a more expensive kit for him. I just hope its not as dumb as Father Grimnar

    7. This is why I hate the internet though lol

      No succubus on site = definitely getting a succubus model
      Archon is STILL on site = we already know he's getting a model

      The logic doesn't follow. I'm not saying we won't get a new succubus, I'm saying that picture is hardly proof that we are, and the succubus not being on the site is, again, hardly proof that we are.

      I'm hopeful we get a vect, dias, and succubus on top of the bomber, archon, and codex supplement that we know are coming. But, the "proof" that people are pointing to for those first 3 things isn't proof by any means, which is the point I'm getting at.

    8. A higher resolution photo has surfaced. It's definitely not the same succubus model we have now.
      It's either a new model, or a conversion.

      Head and body pose are different.

  5. I hope they do a new model of Vect and the Dias of Destruction. He needs it and plus it would mean more people will use him which gives me a chance to cross blades with him.

  6. Not to be a grammar Nazi but... could we please stop calling it a "dias" of destruction? It is spelled DAIS.

    1. Oh my bad. Not very good at the alien tongue.

    2. seriously. every single person that mentioned it in the comments has spelled it wrong, literate bunch.

    3. Dais is an english word. Its not uniquely Eldar.

    4. My personal favourite is 'rouge trader'. Despite running into it so frequently, it never fails to brighten my day.

    5. I blame that lil' scheckshy Cameron Dias... <3

      She likes Cannibal Corpse, you know.

    6. The last Cannibal Corpse song I heard was 'Entrails ripped from a virgin's c*nt'.

      I haven't been back since.

    8. Aye Jaggy; Hammer Smashed Face is a lovely one. It's on the Ace Ventura: Pet Detective soundtrack too LOL

    9. @mauler, when you said blame Cameron Dias, I imagined you said that sentence like Sean Connery lol

    10. The dias might be sculpted by Juan Daiz? One day?
      No?

  7. What's the chances that since it's a hemonculas cult supplement that The Lord of war isn't Vect but Urian. The fact there has been little signs of Vector and that there has been a focus on flesh sculptors may see there having been a power shift in the dark city.

  8. May well be true but when has that stopped GW? I would expect Vect, but the supplements of late have followed themes based on The Lord of war from the codex, the fact the rumours point to hemonculas cult codex would suggest the unless Vect has really fallen in with them that you'd be looking at either Urian bring The Lord of war, them just plain not having one which I doubt or that there is something else coming, some sort of massive construct to rival the wraith knights and riptides out there. I'd like to see the construct idea pan out as if it does you'd expect to see knights and riptides made lords of war later and stop them being spammed all the time. When was the last time anyone saw an Eldar army with a wraith lord in it's list?
