By now you know that he Harlequins are coming next week. The Solitaire release is awesome, and now we have some really cool rules to match. He is fast, has eternal warrior, and looks like he can be deadly in close combat. Definitely on my wish list for models now.
He will work nicely with my rogue trader Harlies and will be a ton of fun to field. Of course only 3 wounds will be able to get through for an opponent, but I am hoping that I can get him into close combat.
Please remember that these are early rules leaks, and as such must be considered rumors until we get an official announcement. I removed the points, but he is not that bad, close to a hundred and a half.
If you missed the releases for next week..... Harlequin Troupes and Solitaire, follow the link

A new Solitaire model. He is in a dynamic pose leaping into the air with one hand out front and his harlequin caress hidden from his target reared back ready to strike the final blow. the model is supported by his jacket on the base. He has a high collar with a demon mask on his face complete with two horns.
