Well, now that the High Elves have gone up for pre-order on GW’s webpage, it looks like we can see where the units have been slotted now (as long as the website can be trusted).
- Lothern Sea Guard
- Silver Helms
- Ellyrian Reavers
- *Lothern Skycutter
- Shadow Warriors/Maiden Guard of Avelorn (I assume the Shadow Warriors are the Special choice)
- Dragon Princes
- Phoenix Guard
- White Lions
- Sword Masters
- Shadow Warriors/Maiden Guard of Avelorn (I assume the Maiden Guard are the Rare choice)
- Bolt Thrower
*Indicates that the entry also appears in the Lords/Heroes section, so can have a character mount.
So, the really exciting things here are that we actually have more choices in Core now. We might actually see Silver Helms and Ellyrian Reavers more frequently, and an all cavalry army could be a possibility, if somebody really wanted to do it. It could make for a very fast and maneuverable army. There doesn’t seem to be any monstrous cavalry units, unless a 2nd wave release of models is planned. That’s not really a big deal to me. I guess that it will all be clear once we get the books in our hands.
I will be picking up the White Dwarf tomorrow and giving my thoughts on what can be gleaned from there.
