Dark Eldar HaemonculusGames Workshop have added several new 40K Dark Eldar products to their Advance Orders page.

The What’s New blog also has a 360 degree rotation of the Razorwing.

    Eh – these look disappointing on the whole. There was an amazing piece of art by Kevin Chin in the Dark Eldar release edition of White Dwarf showing Wracks and a grotesque fighting the Tau. In the artwork they had really distinctive body shapes : oversized torsos with withered waists and arms, supported by skeletal aparatus above the spine and wearing creepily blank face-masks.

    Compared to the art, the wracks have too-normal bodyshapes, the masks are over detailed, and the skeletal apparatus looks far too bulky and one dimensional (finecast my butt…). The Grotesque suffers from similar problems, and shares the same lack of overall design style that so many of GW’s larger sculpts seem to have.

    I only wish the sculptor had paid more attention to those outlandishly menacing and unusual creatures found in the artwork, instead of giving us these uninspired creations. Still, least the Haemonculus is decent.

      Not a lot of minis live up to really good concept art.

    Well, I love them. Chilling sculpts. Sometimes art doesn’t/can’t translate into the 3d model as well as we’d hope, but these are good looking models by their own rights.
