Both Eldar and Dark Eldar are making an appearance next weekend...... with new the plastic Howling Banshees and their Pheonix Lord alongside plastic Incubi and Drazhar (I still prefer his old metal mini).

If you’ve been patiently waiting to escalate the internecine warfare of the Aeldari race, listen up… The new models from the Blood of the Phoenix box will be available to pre-order from this Saturday! We’ve also got a bunch of new fiction on the way in the lead up to the Black Library Celebration on the 29th of February – so scroll down if you’re looking for something new to read. Now, let’s take a look at those models.
The Blood of the Phoenix box kicked off the Psychic Awakening saga in a gripping fashion. The story detailed a breakdown in the uneasy truce between the Asuryani and Drukhari, culminating in an epic duel between two legendary warriors – here’s one of them now.
Jain Zar is the Phoenix Lord of the Howling Banshees, perfectly encapsulating the duality of the Bloody-handed God’s fury and grace. This model is an absolute stunner, capturing one of the finest warriors of the Craftworlds as she twirls and leaps, practically dancing through the air, wielding the Blade of Destruction and her triskele Silent Death to lethal effect.
Soon Jain Zar will be up for grabs to lead your Howling Banshees. Talking of which…
Joining their esteemed leader, you’ll be able to pre-order a box (or three) of updated Howling Banshees Aspect Warriors in plastic. Each kit of five includes both helmeted or bare headed options, and they’re armed with the iconic shuriken pistol and power sword pairing. You can optionally build one model as an Exarch, with a choice of four different heads and several weapon options, so none of your Exarchs need look the same.
Across the battlefield, Drazhar sizes up his mark.
These mercenaries and assassins carry wicked-looking klaives, two-handed weapons that allow them to slice through even heavy armour with ease, scything down elite infantry in a fountain of gore. Their sinister horned helmets and trophy racks are designed to strike terror into their foes, and their reputation is fearsome indeed. One of the five models can be built as a Klaivex with a pair of demiklaives, with a profile for linking them together or using them separately to unleash a flurry of blows.
Keep an eye out for more info about the Aeldari throughout the week! The fracturing of their fragile alliance is a riveting story. And if you like stories, you’re gonna love this next section.
