  1. I have taken a few days to really mull over things, and Honestly I have to say I am going to wait till malerion. I have already started going back to build my Eldar 40k Army. I loved the first reveal, the spearmen looked great and the dawn riders looked awesome, silly plumes could be excused. I really felt that they were super evocative of the old high elves, and I was really pleased that maybe now I could start playing a "high elf" styled army. the next reveal of models had me less enthused due to the goofy helms but was willing to do some head swaps and deal with the mage if I couldnt get him swapped with my minor conversion skills. however the adepticon reveals.... I think I am out. I dont feel like these models feel very "pointy Elf" at all, the huge center pieces (I could deal with Teclis, he was growing on me) I dont care for, they look too beastmen or beastagor. I was excited for phoenix, Dragon style models, not bulls all over the place and being more reminiscent of beastmen. maybe there is a lot more to this Army and they will release all the elemental forces, maybe the zenith will have a dragon or phoenix style, or the wind models will have more of an eagle style. something more true to roots on the elves of old. Nothing new really screams elf to me, and honestly doesnt really pique my interest even if it was the "mountain men" army or something that games workshop chose to tie to the high elves. I do think the models are pretty, and dont hold it against those who like the models, I just cant see myself playing with them. Maybe when Malerion comes around that will get me excited again to play AoS. I dont believe that Tyrion will be in this release anymore with what they have revealed, so maybe his "angelic Elves" will be better suited to my modeling tastes. I am excited for all those who really like the models and are excited, I am just no longer excited for this release at all, I am hopeful that this will be a huge release and they will be releasing more elemental groups and those will appeal to me, but I am not holding my breath for that.
  2. not a if, but a how much work to change the head. always can its just plastic, cut and greenstuff or kit bash... but yes I agree.... I dont mind the body and armor of a lot of the models, I dislike almost all of the heads and helms that have come out. it also looks like the archers will be a separate kit, which sucks for our wallets, as long as they are not build too monopose we might be able to kit bash to make them a bit more unique.... they said in the article that they were easy to make them all unique but then the picture of them.... they are all the same pose and same look almost to a T. I mean It honestly looks like they took one picture and photoshopped it 9 times around the leader guy. but damn I cant say it enough, the helms on these guys and all the head swaps I am going to be doing almost is enough to turn me off to the army.... then I tell myself.... come ooooonnnn its high elves.... just do the head swaps lol! then of course they might grow on me. but right now I am thinking old high elf or AoS Cities bits.
  3. lol, duh. I will say that games workshop is not great face painting.... not that I am amazing either but the plastic is what matters not the paint job. I don't care one way or the other about the faces. some of the detail can be removed to smooth out a face if needed, and some of the details may be just paint. what bothers me is the helms, but historically for me. GW has been horrible about helms and head dressings being atrocious. Not trying to take anyone's enjoyment out but for me I never really care for the way they make helms and helm adornments.
  4. I first saw the article and my heart sank, as I scrolled and saw teclis... I was like really just going to go over the same silly stuff for the last two models. then started reading and saw the new previews.... hmmm I dislike the heads, but head swaps are easy depending on how they are modeled. but I will probably be doing a lot of model editing magic on the heads of all of these models. I really dislike the helms and decor they are wearing.... As someone mentioned before, the arch mage on the rock I bet will have swappable gear to make them attuned to which ever spirit you want your high mage to be. I am curious as to the brazier and what it is connected to, will this be part of a leader model a big mage kit, the scenery "unit" or something else. also the elven lady who others have pointed out looks insanely close to the damsel from brettonia.... wonder is she is going to be a basic mage, or part of another unit or some kind of special character. I do like that it looks like we will get a nice range of male and female models in the release, but some of these pictures make me wonder how many units and kits we will actually get. hell maybe the damsel will be part of Tyrion's kit.
  5. I agree its not likely it will happen but would be cool though!
  6. I not only like this idea but also feel its super flavorful and would be fun to play against in the fact that you could dispel the summons and therefor not be over powered.
  7. My disconnect is all the MC hammer between Teclis' pants and Aelves with hammers.... in all seriousness though I agree with those before, its just not how I see Elven warriors, honestly even greatswords and great axes in old world was a bit of a stretch for me, not impossible but stretching it. If they make a hammer unit, I will probably be converting it to be an Great axe unit though. I dont mind them trying new stuff and maybe the units will look so cool that I wont care anymore. but it is odd about all the nostalgia, like you said, only to go kind of off the rails.... I know they need to make them fresh enough though to draw in people who dont want high elves of old though.
  8. While I do think that hammer Aelves will be legit, with this picture I feel like that rumor is gaining momentum. It is still possible that is a picture of a war machine operator or something else. Now if we could only touch some photos from GW instead of just having to pray every day about what we will get released. But alas GW just wants to gain some momentum from rumors to increase hype, that's just how they roll.... */mchammer puns off* In all seriousness, could be but we still don't really know until we actually see what the unit is, rather than just a blurry picture. I do have a feeling those who say hammer unit is correct, and i'll either have a bunch of 80's puns whenever I play or conversions ahead.
  9. I also agree that the art isnt horrible, I dislike the taste of hammers for elves still though. but then that is what conversions are for, and swapping a hammer head for a awesome axe might be what the doctor ordered for me then. I'll reserve full judgement till I see the models, I do really hope the dawnriders are a dual kit and we can give them some bows too. Even if we cannot legally have bows, I might magnetize a conversion so that way if I ever decide to play Ninth age or some old school WHFB then I can swap them to be reavers. I think this article posted more info than I initially thought, I was really super bummed out at first but it seems after getting off my ****** and perusing the forums here yall have renewed my vigor for the army... I do have to say though if we do not get dragons and dragons are the Malerion route, then I will 100% be buying them and they will probably happen to have the same color scheme as my LRL with a few different highlights.... I mean they are both order so if the LRL don't get dragon knights on dragons, shooting dragons magicially at enemies.... then I will just have to ally with the guy who will LOL! Oh I also heard someone on rantcast about the lumineth realm lords predict that the rock or base that everyone is saying is from the rumor engine and is terrain, may be a caster lord style character or a support caster. If you look at the rumor engine there is something coming off the rock. Not saying that is what it is or isn't, it could be energy connected to nothing but with how dynamic and monopose GW has been lately with floaty (albeit good) models... it could be connected to a lumineth realm lord caster of some type. Edit: to add a point and not double post.
  10. throw in my 2 cent about the release stuff, I think that we also have to figure that they might release the new lizardmen, saurians? is that correct? before they release the LRL. that also might change what kind of battle forces or boxes we might get and how the story might or might not introduce our beloved Aelves.
  11. while I agree that they will probably show him and hopefully all the LRL mages some love... hopefully making him on par casting wise to Nagash at least. this is the company that talks about how eldar weapons melt all armor, flesh and harness the power of stars.... but then they give them in game 5+ to wound and AP5 weapons... sorry not to be a negative nancy, I am sure GW will give the LRL the love they deserve. and I feel like GW has gotten a lot better over the last few years in general. It's Just sometimes the company is not good at matching fluff to game play or vise versa.
  12. Yeah I am pretty amped about Malerion, if his army is one third dragon, elf and demon then I am on board. those will be my two armies, LRL and Malerion elves. I am mixed, I kind of want them to do a dual release so I can buy two small armies of each and play with some friends who dont have models. but at the same time I am like.... no I want them to space them out so I have time to paint my LRL first.
  13. I keep looking at other armies and like them enough to entertain the idea of buying them... then I look at all the aspects of the other models I dislike and decide to wait for LRLs.
  14. I think you could still do crystalline or some other appearance to the bases. could do them as an invading force to any other realm if you wanted. I am thinking I'll either do the naturey bases trees and stone work like they have been showing already or I might go with a lava style base. I do usually like to do snow though, and could go that way snow and ice crystals. granted I could take the base style they do for the LRL and still add snowy scenes to it.
  15. I agree, I think the space at which the tidbits we get are so far apart and the lack of any real information has kind of turned me off a bit. almost like I would rather just not look at anything till a majority of the info is out... too bad I am like a GW crack addict and probably wont be able to stay away from each release rumor, even if I am just disappointed afterwards reading it lol.
