This Week's Pre_Orders: Harlequin Codex, Starweaver, Dice, and Datacards


We have word on what will be coming this week, although no pricing as of yet. However its a nice set of pre-orders with the Harlequin codex, Starweaver transport, dice, and datacards. The codex will be the big news this week, as we look forward hoping to get a glimpse of what will be in it.


Please remember that these are rumors at this point, but from an excellent source.

  1. 7 phycik cards? That means the shadow seer gets a real big but then?

    1. I will refrain from commenting on the size of the shadowseer's butt*

    2. Shadowseers are still Eldar, so Sir-Mix-A-Lot would be disappointed.

      Delete
    3. Would a big butt give a cover save?

      Delete
    4. Might make a cover save worse, I'd think. Skinny body behind a pillar, big butt sticking out just asking to get shot.

    5. Phycik. Wat.

      But I am very excited for this release, hopefully I can actually get the datacards at release unlike the Necron cards. My shop only got one set of Necron cards.

    6. Right, dyslectia and autocorrect fail do not mix well do they? Although not sure if this is really a bad one.

  2. ...aaaaand there's a new Vraks book, updated to 7th Ed.
    http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/New_Stuff/IMPERIAL_ARMOUR_THE_SIEGE_OF_VRAKS.html
    I wonder if the R&H army list is different from IA13?

    1. From the table of contents, all the units are the same as IA 13 but with the addition of a formation as well as a CSM formation. I'm guessing the only difference is the addition of the formations.

      Delete
    2. That, and CSM characters from Vraks

      Delete
    3. Sounds like a huge waste of money for CSM players, then.

      Delete
    4. Unless you are buying the book for that campaign.

      Delete
    5. Good to have dedicated militia rules, even though similar to IA13.

      Also updated death korps rules, the first new set since 7th

  3. But what about plastic shadowseer and death jester?

    ReplyDelete

    1. I would say, don't count on it right now. Maybe the wave will continue after the codex hits. (Doubt it) but as far as it's now. The models are still good (enough) to put in the field

      Delete
    2. Even though we have already seen the new Death Jester...

      Delete
    3. That's where I'm curious, I already have a resin shadowseer, I'd like to have more plastic available and see what their options are

      Delete

    5. Plus there are no HQ options yet...

      Delete
    6. DAMO. R.
      I know what jester you mean. And I hope it will be a new plastic Jester. (I'm not overly fond of fine cast)
      As for HQ, it is a posebilety that the seer will be moved to there. 7 psychic cards?
      I'm really curious about those.
      But, what not is, can still come.

      Delete
    7. given the fact they already have models for the DJ and the SS they may wait another week to release them so they can get some rules out and get some cash flowing. No worries of people having to convert or go to 3rd party

      Delete
    8. Perhaps. I hope the Avatar makes an appearance

      Delete
    9. The D.J. and S.S. are temp out of stock again on the UK Webstore - but not sold out.

      The D.J. on the cover of Warhammer Visions 14, was defo not the finecast one as has been noted.

      Wouldn't surprise me of there's one more week of Harly releases after the codex is up for pre-orders - i.e. the HQ's.

      Unless the pics of issue 14 were a photoshop hoax.

      Delete
    10. Generally GW have been finishing the release the week after codex drop with a final wave of models. Two clam pack characters wouldn't be out of the question for pre-order on the 21st.

    12. iirc, they did the same with the Dark Eldar - the archon/succubus came out the week after the codex, didn't they? I think it was haemy/wracks...then bomber/codex...then archon/succubus.

    14. It's defo been happening a lot. The final wave of releases go up for pre-order the Fri night, before the codex is in the shops the following morning.

      Fingers crossed for some more killer-clown goodies. Then it's back to the end times...

      And those Bloodthirsters.

      Delete
    15. Yeah the following week is Bloodthirster and ET Archaon. I very much doubt we'll see any more harlequins.

      Delete
    16. Murder clowns for the win.
      We can only hope. Although D.J and S.S. We still be missing a great Quin and mimes I think?

    1. No probably the high avatar with maybe a council of shadowseers though I would rather them be added to troop squads and have like a mastery lvl 3 version as hq

      Delete
    2. We haven't heard anything about the great Harly or avatar, so the only thing I can think of is more surprise models, or it'll be the shadow seer. I'm really curious as to how the shadowseer and death jester will work.

      Delete
    3. I'm not super up on the fluff yet, but are we talking about an avatar of khaine? Is there such a thing as an avatar of Cegorach? Wouldn't that be a hell of a thing?

      Delete
    4. One Harliquin is the avatar. Basically he plays Cegorach in the plays. Not really related to the Avatar of Khaine at all.

      Delete
    5. Is that what a Great Harlequin is then?

      Either way it's not too hard to think that next weeks release could be 3 clampack models.

      Delete
    6. I think they're the same thing, with two different names. Maybe ones higher rank, like the grand poobah of all harlies, like Vect maybe. I don't really know other than that.

      Delete
    7. I can clear this up. The leaders of the Masques were called Avatars and High Avatars in the first 1989 Harlequin army list (WD 105). Codex Eldar 1994 dropped all Avatar titles from the Harlequins. Starting from then, the overall leader of a Masque has always been called the Great Harlequin.

      Delete
    8. The harlequin use of "avatar" predates the Eldar Avatar

      Delete
    9. Irrelevant. The design team hadn't got around to clarifying the 1989 Harlequin army list & background when the Craftworld Eldar (including the Avatar if Khaine, no model at that point but the rules for it) were first released in White Dwarf 127.

      Delete
    10. High Avatar is being mentioned in the Masque of Vile though (so is a Mime)

      Delete
  5. Natfka! Please tell me that the 'full codex' rumor is from your post reliable source. My only fear the past month is that it's not going to be a standalone. Here's to hoping.

    2. Per Warseer the codex is fully standalone just like Militarum Tempestus.

      Delete
    3. Harlequins are most definitely a stand alone faction with CWE & DE battlebrothers

    4. Nightfury !!!
      Great news.
      Thanks!

  6. Looks like for the first time I'll be joining the crazed pre-order scramble!

    1. Save some ducats while you can. There's a lot of stuff next week that will probably sell out online within minutes.

    1. Good luck on the GW site getting those babies.

      Delete
    2. Plus the cool symbol will be on the "1" in typical GW stupidity, "Awesome cool symbol!!.... But your models dead bro"

      Delete
    3. Or "awesome cool symbol .... you passed your leadership. "

      Delete
    4. Although this time it's rather appropriate. With the laughing God and all. The mean tricstrer

      Delete
    5. Harlies never dies.They "disappear from the battlefield"

      Delete
  8. Also of mention is the codex is a whopping 96 pages comparatively the Space wolf codex is only 92 pages...
