High Elves: New models!

This from GW's newsletter forwarded to me by BroLo:

"The High Elves are the noblest of races, the remnant of a once-mighty civilisation that spanned the globe. The titanic destruction unleashed by the Daemons of Chaos and the monstrous betrayal of the Dark Elves left their nation a shadow of its former might and glory, and yet the High Elves fight on. For millennia they have stood sentinel against the depredations of Chaos, thwarting the machinations of the Dark Gods over and again, and though their population has dwindled, the skill and determination of their armies remains steadfast.

In battle, the armies of the High Elves are a glorious sight to behold. Ranks of elite soldiers clad in unspotted white and glittering silver stand against the dark tide of the Forces of Destruction. With a mystical grace and agility that is incomparable to the lumpen, slothful gestures of lesser mortals, they cleave through the foe with spear and blade - their skill and speed a match for any foe. Volleys of white-fletched arrows are sent slashing into the foe, accompanied by the heavier, deadlier shots of the Eagle Claw Bolt Throwers, which can punch through even the thickest armour. Powerful High Elf Mages direct the ebb and flow of the Winds of Magic to smite the foe with incandescent flames, or protect their allies with the dazzling power of Asuryan, the king of the Elven gods.

For more information about the High Elf releases in October, watch out for future newsletters, keep an on the Games Workshop website and check out October's issue of White Dwarf."

I'll be looking forward to these models as I'm already quite interested in starting an HE army. I'll need to pay close attention to what is being released/re-modelled as I'm already a fan of the HE models. Combined with some rumors surfacing about what's in the Island of Blood set...well High Elves are looking set to plague my painting table soon! The Island of Blood is rumored to include the mini-Warhammer book with some terrain and Skaven and High Elf models including a Prince on Griffon, Mage, 10x Swordmasters, 10x Seaguard, Warlord, Warlock, 40 Clanrats, Wind Mortar, Warpfire Thrower, 2 Rat Ogres and Packmaster. Models appear to be similar to AoBR with limited poses but still great detail! Here are the pictures circling the web as well for HE only

I want some plastic Dark Riders. If GWs realises those soon then I will have even more reason to get into Fantasy.

@ BroLo - With the new HE miniatures this will leave DE with the last fugly horses. So the WE can wait.

... ugly as sin.

Dark Riders and new Cold One chariots, for fuck's sake.

Not sure what the new HE stuff will be, I'm hoping for spearmen that don't look like ass.

@Chum : I'm keeping my fingers crossed too :)
@Kirby: Welcome to Warhammer Fantasy!!! Looks like you are hooked.. =)

Ya I've been hooked, line and sinker :S. Been putting together some army lists in my head last night so might get them posted up and go over the rules again. Then I need to start looking at other books.

I've already had an e-mail request for a list review! but it's on hold for the moment :P.
