Dark Eldar Codex Leaks: Images [Updated]

I am starting to find a trickle of images coming through...  Below are two that have been circulating on a Spanish blog.

The original post can be found here.

There are a few changes here: I have put these in bold below.

Archon:  no change
Drahzar: no change
Haemonculus: WS 5 BS 5 W 3 I 5 A 3 LD 9
Lelith: A 5
Medusae: Sv 3+ (?)
Urien: I 5 W 5 A 4 (?)

The obvious winners here are the Coven units with Urien going up to an impressive 5 wounds and the Haemonculi taking on the statline of the Haemonculus Ancient of old.  I'd imagine this will come with a corresponding points increase.

The second picture is a little too blurry my eyes to make anything out; if you spot something pop it in the comments and I'll add your observation to the blog!

Here is a translation of the Spanish post:

An anonymous reader who wants to remain anonymous has contacted me to give me some breaking news. I think it's quite clear:
"Hi! I have the codex here and I can tell you that asdrubal isn't in it..."
He's also sent me this image. It looks like this reader clears up any doubts. Asdruval Vect isn't in the new Dark Eldar codex and consequently there are only three special characters left: Drazhar, Lelith and Urien. All of the rest are out as they don't have miniatures and Vect, even though he's had a miniature up until now, isn't in it anymore. They've withdrawn the old one and they haven't brought out a new one. What's more, the Dark Eldar don't have a Lord of War. They're the first of the new codex not to have them. The photos have been taken on a phone but they're clear.

I'm afraid he doesn't show up anywhere. It's confirmed then. He also adds this: "Now only the leader of the witches can use disruption grenades" "motorbikes don't do passive (?) damage in turbo" "despite this, a lot of things have had their points reduced. A unit of 5 azotes (possibly undead?) with 4 burning lances costs 120 points"

120 points for a deepstriking squad with 4 heatlances does sound an interesting prospect...

Check back on Fri/Sat when I will be going through my new Archon Edition and Haemonculus Supplement!


  1. A bit liberal with Urien, weren't they? Five wounds is a bit excessive, but I'll take it. I'll also miss his old version of the clone field; it was a nice change of pace from the ubiquitous shadowfield.

    Though I suspect you'll have a more positive outlook on our new codex than I, I still look forward to reading your review, especially the bit about the covens supplement!

  2. I'm pretty sure that that is a 5+ save on the Archon...

  3. Please, give us info on the Haemonculus supplement ! I doubt many people will have it this week !

    1. Hi Sazagan, I will do an update on the Covens supplement on Saturday morning as soon as I have my mits on it!
