The Harlequins have had a chequered past (Oh - boom boom - unintentional pun!) as off-shoots from the Eldar to bad guys to mercenaries to potential allies to Space Marines and Imperial Guard. They haverun the gamut of the 40K universe. In fact I think pretty much all of us thought they were a thing of the past - until the rumours started about a month ago.
Well the time is upon us and the fancy-pants Eldar are here to cause chaos... I mean not literally because that would be the polar opposite of what Harlequins are all about!
Anyway, in this week's White Dwarf we get a solid look at the Harlequins, including a tribute to their Rogue Trader past, there's a lengthy Paint Splatter to help you get those colours right, the winner of Golden Demon 2014 gets a run, there's also some rules, some new books and a whole lot of Eldar fluff. Tempted? Come have a look inside...

Also, thanks to these sprue shits from the GW website we can see that each figure is truly multi-part providing ultimate flexibility with other Eldar and Dark Eldar kits. Great work GW!
From the brilliantly conceived to a serious lack of imagination. Won't be on my to-buy list!
For gamers however - have a look at his movement stat! You may be impressed!
There's also a new Dark Eldar book, somewhat overshadowed by a Harlequins re-release.
Where's the Dark Eldar love??
The Nod To Rogue Trader
These little nods to the old universe are really great. There is some love for the Beardys out there after all!
The background makes good reading too, even if the whole fall of the Eldar makes for depressing stuff.
