pearhead box sets are the only way to get our forthcoming releases ahead of anybody else, containing a selection of new models and the new army book, two weeks ahead of the main release. This a chance to own a Dark Elf force before anyone else. This Spearhead box set contains a selection of fantastic models from the forthcoming range of Dark Elves. Included in the box are the new plastic Cold One Knights, the metal Supreme Sorceress on foot and mounted, a fearsome War Hydra, and many more miniatures besides, as well as the latest edition of Warhammer Armies: Dark Elves.


Great GW, make people order your DE Spearhead, but don't tell them of the full content of it :roll:

Keep someone without food for long enough and they will dive on the first sign of scraps. im not saying i wouldn't do the same thing if they said a new Wood Elf spearhead was coming out. And judging from the new models in the WD and the CoK's i saw on warseer putting money down on the DE spearhead is probably a wise choice. I cant wait to fight them
Good Hunting. And check the tree line.... we are watching you

Since I read D.net alot, I know that.

I'm just pointing out that those who don't read forums alot, won't know what it contains, and that it's just idiotic from GW's part, not to write the full content of the spearhead.

13 years of being a Dark Elf has finally paid off. I am getting one of those for sure. The Characters are great looking. That Hydra is a menace to society. The plastics Cold Ones and Corsairs are beautifull.

Great looking models in there. The Corsairs are old news, but seeing Cold One Knights and the Hydra are nice.

Yeah, but you gotta use the GW currency exchange scale.... where $90US = $130CDN and $50US = $55CDN Brilliant!!!
The Empire Army Box sells fer £100 and goes for $250CDN, so I'm hoping around there, as my B-Day fast approacheth :D
Anyways, it's just an excuse to get the AB 2 weeks early, the contents are crap (6 characters!! C'mon!!)

Later

Holy that new Hydra is plastic. I will take 2...

Warriors are only 7 points with shields!!! That is good, cause Corsairs are still 10 points, and Dark Riders have gone down a point. Awesome.

I am glad I waited for this release. 1 Spearhead is ordered.

Anyone know what's in the battalion?

People must have the book...someone must post more info.

Intriguing if it all proves true, but we'll see. The Special choices all sound lackluster though. No ASF for Witch Elves? No special rule for wounding with Executioners? No additional benefits for Cold One Knights? I'll keep hoping for more information as we get closer to release, and absolutely no offense meant towards the poster :) .

magic items rumors wrote:Right I've cobbled together what I could remember from the Magic Item list (which I have to say I was very impressed with overall).

Some items I can't remember the name, the cost or perhaps the precise description. However I'll list the items in the order they appeared so in each section you can assume that even if I've omitted the price cost the top of each section is the most expensive and the bottom the least.

This list is neither complete nor probably entirely accurate (I may have muddled some item descriptions and have almost certainly ommited alot). So take this with a pinch of salt and don't run off making lists Wink

Common Items:

Sword of Striking , Sword of Battle , Sword of Might :15pts
Biting Blade: 5pts
Staff of Sorcery: 35pts
Power Stone: 20pts

Enchanted Items:

Deathmask (50pts)
Same as in 6th Edition but moved from Talisman to Enchanted

Hydra's Teeth
Gives the bearer 5 teeth. Any number of these can be thrown, each one causing D3 WS2 S3 attacks on the target unit.

Black Dragon Egg (30pts)
One use only. Eaten at the start of either player's turn. Gives the user Toughness 6 and a Breath Weapon attack until the end of the turn.

Potion of Strength
One use only. Gives the bearer +3 strength until the end of the turn

Seal of Ghrond (25pts)
Same as in 6th Edition by moved from Talisman to Enchanted

I also remember another "One Use Only" item which made the bearer and his unit ItP until the end of the turn aswell. But for the life of me I can't remember the cost or it's name. I think it fell in between the Hydra Teeth and the Black Dragon Egg in terms of price.

Weapons:

Executioner's Axe
Same as in 6th Edition, still struggling to see the use of it.

Blade of Ruin (50pts)
Same as in 6th Edition

Chillblade (50pts)
Back from 6th Edition, and much improved. Each hit makes the target take a toughness test or take a wound with no armour save. If a model takes any wounds they cannot attack that turn.

Web of Shadows (50pts)
Same as in 6th Edition but with a points increase from 25pts to 50pts

Hydra Blade (35pts)
Same as in 6th Edition, but with a points decrease from 50pts to 35pts

Caledor's Bane
+3 strength on the charge (NB. It is not stated as a Lance, so can be used on foot - possibly will be errata'd). Ignores Scaly skin saves

Lifetaker (30pts)
30" range, Strength 4, 3x multiple shots. Always hits on a 2+

<<Dagger>>
Magic Dagger which can be combined with normal hand weapons for an additional attack. Grants the bearer the ASF rule.

Crimson Death (25pts)
Same as in 6th Edition, just with a points decrease from 35pts to 25pts

Below the Crimson death were two or three other cheap items who's exact nature eludes me. One was a 25pts Lance with Killing blow, and I recall another Lance (whose exact effect escapes me Embarassed ). I think one may have been a magic great weapon.

Armour:

Armour of Living Death (60pts)
Almost exactly the same as in 6th Edition, but with a points decrease. Added effect that at the start of the battle you roll a dice - on a 1 he is subject to stupidity for the game.

Armour of Eternal Servitude (35pts)
Heavy Armour, Regeneration

Shield of Ghrond
It's back! Same as int 6th Edition

Armour of Darkness (25pts)
Gives the beaer a 1+ armour save, that cannot be improved. No Shield component

Blood Armour
Same as in 6th Edition

Arcane:

< (55pts)
Contains the "free" Dark Elf spell, PoD. Power Level 4.

<<Familiar>>
At the beginning of the Magic Phase you can mark a point within 6" of the Sorceress and more than 1" away from the enemy. The Sorceress can use this point for the purpose of determining LoS and Range for casting spells.

Darkstar Cloak
Same as in 6th Edition

Sacrificial Dagger (25pts)
After rolling the dice to cast a spell, the Sorceress may remove one model from the unit they are with to roll an extra dice before dispel attemtps, may be used once per spell cast. Causes panic test if unit loses more than 25%

Tome of Furion
Same as in 6th Edition

Talisman:

Black Amulet (70pts)
Gives the bearer a 4+ Ward Save. In Close Combat any succesful ward saves reflect the attack doing 1 wound with no saves.

<<Reverse Ward Save>> (35pts)
Gives the wearer a ward save. When wounded roll a dice - if the dice roll is under the strength of the attack the wound is negated. A 6 always fails.

Ring of Hotek (20pts)
Same effect as in 6th Edition, but with a range of 12"

Null Shard (15pts) Gives the bearer Magic Resistance 1. Multiple Null Shards can be bought and the effect stacks.

Blargh. I'll come back and do the banners in a little bit, but my eyes are starting to go funny looking for all the [ b ] and [ / b] bits...

Hope this gives you a taster of some of our new items, and apologies for not paying more detailed attention to this section. Enjoy!

And new images
