Who are they? Are they still being played or have they been made obsolete?

Any information would be helpful.

Thank you.

That's a basic Dark Eldar unit (with a Splinter Rifle, I think). They are technically still legal but they haven't gotten new models, a new codex, or any real support for about two editions of the game. They seem to be one of the least popular armies and their models all look very out of date next to more current sculpts.

May I rephrase that?

They are technically still legal but they haven't gotten new models, a new codex, or any real support for about two editions of the game, that is why they are one of the least popular armies and their models all look very out of date next to more current sculpts.

I heard that they are the next 40K army to get updated (as well as Tyranids)... Grapevine.
I think that if they make them anywhere close to the latest releases, they will be awesome.

The new Tyranid Codex, new plastic kits and new metal minis come out Jan. 16th. Something else is supposed to be out in March, maybe Dark Eldar?

Dark Eldar is getting a complete new line of resculpts, so they pushed back their release. We should see them by the end of 2010.

Allegedly, we're expecting Blood Angels.

Here's the thing. Because GWs main sales are through the Space Marines, I think it would be potentially likely that we'll see a lot of Upgrade Packs like the Space Wolves stuff because they don't need a complete line rehaul. I'm actually okay with that.

I'd much rather see them take some time making the new DE stuff look really nice as opposed to rushing it out.

In addition, I think they should also make a single Eldar box that is an Aspect Warriors box that has all the pieces needed to make any of the aspects.

My 2c.
