Sorry to disappoint, but I don’t have pictures of the High Elf models due to come out. However, GW has revealed here that the army book is staying the same and which plastic sets are NOT getting changed.
The most disappointing thing, in my opinion, is that they aren’t changing the spearmen, although they’re bearable, but the sacrilige is that they aren’t updating the god-awful archers. Once upon a time, they were quite decent, but now they look ridiculous, bland and more than a little stupid.
However, something to consider is that they will possibly make Lothern Sea Guard (which can be used as spearman - although surely that would simply replace the current box of spearmen?), but are probably going to make plastic White Lions of Chrace, more than likely Swordmasters of Hoeth and, I would imagine, Ellyrian Reavers.
Other models to consider them making in plastic are Shadow Warriors of Nagarythe (which could more than likely be used as archers). I can’t think of others from the top of my head, except perhaps Phoenix Guard, but I think that they’ve aged quite well (at least compared to the archers ). Any further thoughts?
I hope the pheonix guard are up to scratch though, I really like the metal models and it’d be a shame for them to go backwards as they have for the horrors. New White Lions have been needed for a while…
