Eldar stuff for spearhead.

Post  Guest on Sun Apr 25, 2010 1:29 am


This is apparently the new fire prism. If that is the case, I am going to have to pick up a couple of the old ones to avoid the ridiculous looking cannon on this thing.



Night Spinner. This one looks good. I'm intrigued to see what they make the rules.

Well, hmm.

If that is actually the new fire prism model, I will be a tad surprised. It just looks a bit too unwieldy for the Eldar aesthetic. But who knows.

Ben: The old prism gun is pewter, which leads to a very unwieldy model. Regardless, if they release a pure plastic prism, I will have to grab a few.

And unless they have re-vamped the night-spinner, it is a pretty crappy weapon to throw onto a grav-tank. Yes, it is S6. Yes, it is L.Blast. However, it allows all armor saves and is out-done by a fire prism in every way. Now, it is could also transport Warp Spiders or something...then we can talk.

Ben: The Spearhead releases seem to be for IG, SM, and Eldar. I haven't heard a peep anywhere about Tau.

my friend at the GW store in ottawa was telling me that the fireprism is going to be like the baal predator and just be made all plastic. That was his guess on it, he couldnt realy confirm anything.

I was also trying to pry some info outta him on something tyranids would use, maybe something like how they took the FW trygon and made thier own/cheaper model....maybe they'll do something for the heirodule.

But he did say IG/SM were geting something and that the eldar were not far behind.

I like the new prism. the large crystal as the main firing barrel looked awful. i like the idea that the not as large crystal focuses the power and then is released through a long barrel. (The longer the barrel, the better velocity meaning better range and accuracy). makes sense to me.

I dunno, the more I look at it, the more it grows on me.

Like a fungus, I guess.

But it shoots a lazer, that fires at the speed of light; its velocity should always be around 2.98x10 exp 8 regardless of barrel length

Regardless, does this mean a new eldar codex is coming out?

There are no real indications of a new Eldar codex in the next year or so (other than Dark Eldar, but they are sooo different Very Happy ). It seems like GW will be releasing the playable rules for the Night-spinner in White Dwarf, as part of the Spearhead release in June.

Here is hoping they throw that tank in the Fast Attack slot, so it doesn't have to compete with Fire Prisms and Falcons for FoC spots.

And while the Eldar are not exactly crying for a new Codex like Necrons or DE, a new one would be able to re-balance the list points-wise, as things tend to be over-costed. Though it is still a strong book, in my opinion.

I do like the new prism, a long barrel makes a lot more sense, and fits with EVERY OTHER ELDAR BFG. I especially like the swept back spars and struts on the back, makes the tank look Waaaaaay better, like forgeworld's Mk II versions.

Adam and Greg= please oh please don't frikkin tell me you guys are trying to apply real world logic to Warhammer's "rule of cool" tech. Mad

Man if they put Night Spinners in fast attack and they cost approx. the same as fire prisms for points, I would snag a couple to run a screen and create walls for my troops to hide behind, unless they made the cannon very good.

I can see why GW is going back to putting rules in the white dwarfs again. Means more ppl buying WDs, and new models they can put out (thereby allowing them to sell old models they otherwise would need to pull for the new plastics). I like it, I can see GW liking it in a business sense, win-win!

Because they were releasing chapter approved rules, though often without models. This meant that eventually, there were so many rules, and some where so imbalanced, when 5th came around, they just stopped doing it all together. Also, the WD setup changed, becoming more of an advertisement for GW figs and such, than an actual hobby mag. Its still bad, but getting better.

I was not using real world logic to explain rules. I was using a real world actuality to explain why something made sense aestheticly. there's a big difference. i like practical looks to things even in a fantasy/sf setting.

My only beef with this BFG is that they took an already BFG, and slapped ANOTHER BFG ONTO IT! But, as previously stated, the model is growing on me. I will likely be grabbing a few and magnetizing them so I can flip between Night-spinner and Prism.

This is the part that is growing on me. It reminds me of those forgeworld conversion kits you can buy for the Grav-Tank chassis. It includes parts that are swept back on the turret mount, and extend the real-hull in a sweeping fashion. Very nice.

June. Whether they release it all at once, or stagger it is unknown at this point (at least unknown to myself).
