A word to the wise

"Ask not the Eldar a question, for they will give you three answers, all of which are true and terrifying to know." - Inquisitor Czevak Turns out, the answers are; "Oh, just a few days", "Our friends will be here shortly" and "We have quite the appetite".

Preparing the Masque - 3rd Party Harlequin Jetbikes

So by now most of you have heard about the impending re-release of Eldar Harlequins. Buckets of salt or not, this is tasty tasty news. Of the five major sub types of Eldar, only the Exodites remain - and that Forgeworld Smaug model certainly does beg for becoming a mount *wink wink nudge nudge*

What we haven't seen for a long time, and currently being hinted at, is the inclusion of Harlequin Jetbikes. As if Ninja Clowns weren't enough, we've now given them Hell's Angels style futuristic Jetbikes... maniacal laughter ensues.

Meanwhile, i've been sitting on a couple of dozen old style Harlequin Jetbikes, with a view to building some of the new 3rd party ones as well. You may recall back when I had a bunch of Warlocks, Farseers and Autarchs painted, a good friend also gave me some of the prototype (at the time, now production) Harlequin Jetbiker heads.

These heads were quickly bolstered by canopies and became conversion kits.

And the end result? These beauties...

Juicy... to say the very least. So now to prepare the Masque, comprising of over 125 OOP Harlequins, 26 OOP Harlequin Jetbikes, 30 new type Harlequins and 30 3rd Party Harlequin Jetbikers. I won't lie, I feel a little sorry for the commissioned artist who has to deal with these guys (Nigel, i'm looking at you - if you're reading this).

Now all we have to do is hope the rumours are true ;) and pray for Exodites next.
