Eldar Rumors: New Kits Spotted

Well looks like GW is keeping some new Eldar kits under wraps. Kirby spotted some new stuff down under while digging for rumors.
Again I will believe it when I see it, but it has me hopeful that the new codex is nigh. So here is what was seen.
Plastic Warp Spiders/ Everguard ( sounds high elf)
Plastic Shining spears ( granted mostly plastic now but a new kit that's all plastic would be nice)
Phantom Wachter ( my Germans rusty but I think that's a spirit seer or maybe shadow specters, it translates to Ghost Guard or Phantom Guard.  I guess that could actually be the plastic Wraith Guard)
Plastic Wraithguard ( this has me excited but I will believe it when I see it. Its a possible explanation why we havn't seen a finecast model though)
Resin Exarchs or Xenarchs as the name read.
Resin warlock
Resin avatar box
Resin Black Warden, looks like female Autarch or an Exodite leader
Resin dragon riders
Resin Webway gate( this has me very excited as it seems to point to Eldar having a Webway portal like the dark kin).
A flyer kit. Apparently crossbow shaped.  This had a mix of weapons and what looked to be a distortion cannon in a dorsal mount position.  I think there is a good chance of the flyer.  It could be Eldar or it could be a Void Raven Bomber as there is an inbound flyer release including the Dark Eldar and Tau.
A Shining Spear Phoenix Lord is possible, but the Description and Name Niaduh leads me to believe that there is a new codex inbound and Niaduh Fireheart The famed Wild Rider Cheiftan of Saim Hann is making a return to the game.  He was seen riding what looked like a Vyper bike.

Plastic or resin "Halcones Cazadores", which if my Spanish is correct is "Hunting Hawks" or in English Swooping Hawks.  Granted the current models are finecast, but a redesign could be cool. There was also mention of Jetbikes.  I know Jes Goodwin did a prototype for a new Eldar Jetbike like 3 or 4 years or more ago.  If this was put into production I will be buying tons.  Saim Hann army numbers.

There was also some Eldritch Raider models, which says to me that Prince Yriel's boys and girls will be making an appearance with the codex allowing you to run a Pirate list or what has me kind of excited an Exodite List.

Well there you have it.  We might have a codex by early 2013, me thinks after the Chaos Codex drops in September, or rumored to drop.  I am sensing major changes and several different army options in the same ball park as the Dark Eldar.

Well I am going to try and have my post about Allies for the Eldar up by Saturday.  I have been toying with a few combos.  I am going to decide on one and use it at the First 6th edition tournament in the Lansing area.

Evolution Games in Lansing will be having an 1850 tournament on Saturday 28th. doors open at 11 and dice roll at noon.  1850 pts, allies and Fortifications will be allowed.  Hope to see you there.

Until next time.............
