Yeah, also with the new rules I find striking first is not as powerful as it once was.

I wonder what our new large monster/war machine will be? lol...

Absolutely, ASF was a very powerful rule when we were able to charge in, wipe the first rank, and have no attacks coming back. Really not as strong now that they can still hit back with full strength. Of course still good and useful, but not as good.

We already have dragons as a large monster. There are rumours of units of dragon riders, possibly on mini (unwinged?) dragons, but of course that rumour has been floating around for years so I'd give it no more weight now than any other time. People on WS were also talking about a flying chariot of some description. I don't think much of the idea tongue.gif but we'll see.

I see, I was hoping for a super sized bolt thrower. The fluff hints at the ones we use as smaller man portable ones and suggests port defences/larger ships etc have full-on artillery class bolt throwers. Imagine 60 inch range, str 8 d6 wounds tongue.gif

That would be cool, we could use another warmachine or two. We'll have to wait and see, WoC are first around October and sounding rather exciting! But there was info about them a long time ago, so hopefully more on the HE will come through soon.

Good idea, two hand weapons and KB arrows would make Shadow Warriors worthy of their fluff and worthy of a place in army lists.


So Waywatchers with an AHW inplace of the Strider rule? Fair swap I think and fits the background nicely

And I also get hints that we will get a super dragon that makes the Star Dragon look second class!!!!

Really? Wow I hadn't heard that. I guess if we get another big kit (lol there isn't an if really I guess) dragons do suit High Elves best. GW seems to like using really big bases now, it would be interesting to see the pose they make for a dragon spread wide across a large base.

Think of how tasty High Magic will become. We may have the magic phase other mages WISH they had haha.

Look here for a picture of some of our new units.

I have also read a load of rumours about what we can expect to see. It looks really interesting and powerful.
