First up from Forge World is the Wraithseer kit…
Followed by the Eldar Corsair conversion kit…
These kits will be available at the 2011 Forge World Open Day on April 3rd.
What do you think all you Eldar players?
More shooty jump infantry! Just what the eldar needed, since the warp spiders, swooping hawks and shadow spectres don’t already do that…
Hows about this Forgeworld? Do a pack of ten different poses for Shuriken pistols, and ten diferent poses/ blades for swords, or even just five of each and double up. That way Eldar players can actually have a minimum storm squad unit, since the GW box is two frickin’ models shy. >:(
Uhm, it’s only the squad leader that is armed with a close combat weapon, i don’t think the rest of the unit has that option. Hmm, jump pack with what looks suspiciously like a lasblaster, look more like a stand-in for swooping hawks in a Corsair army than a new unit, except of course that the leader is armed with a fusion pistol and the lone model armed with a shuriken catapult. Still the models look very nice.
I generally don’t get why people hate the hawks so much they are perfect for taking out light hordes, such as guardsmen, gaunts and orks, combine that with their ability to take almost any model with an armorvalue out in one turn, and you have a very flexible unit, at least for the eldar.
As for the wraithseer i am very exited as i wrote in an earlier discussion i would love to see some of the old wraithunits and this looks like the old spirit warrior (now if only they could make the ghost warriors and the aspect wraithlord, it would be perfect). Is that a powerfield generator on his wrist and is that a D-cannon, ounch! that is going to be a tough unit, although i don’t see the idea in a singing spear, wraithlords are str. 10, they wound most things on 2+ anyway
hmm the corsairs seem meh to me, like has been said eldar have shooty jump infantry. The wraithseer is interesting. Testing a future possible entry to the next eldar codex perhaps? I’d say so if the appearance of a certain blood angel librarian dreadnought is anything to go by…
