As the Psychic Awakening approaches, we’re ramping up the excitement with another part of the Phoenix Rising prophecy and A NEW, PLASTIC PHOENIX LORD! No, your eyes aren’t deceiving you – read on and you’ll find out which Character we’re talking about…
But first! the prophecy continues…
PsyAwk-Sep16-Quote-ahdff3.jpg
Ylocu Shaie must be fun at parties… In any case, it sounds like the Ynarri have been kicking up something of a storm in their attempts to free the Aeldari from eternal damnation at the hands of Slaanesh. Bringing a god into consciousness from sheer potentiality evidently comes at a cost!
The Ynnari could definitely use a hand from someone with the experience of ages to guide them through these turbulent times – but who could rise to such a challenge?

 



That’s right – Jain Zar is back and is more incredible than ever! As the Phoenix Lord of the Howling Banshees, Jain Zar is the spiritual mother to all who follow in her path by dedicating themselves to her Warrior Aspect.
Jain Zar’s exquisite new miniature embodies the lethal grace for which she has become renowned, and feared, across the galaxy. As well as sweeping her deadly glaive, the Blade of Destruction, in a decapitating strike, she is poised to whip her right arm around to hurl her legendary triskele, Silent Death. Her feet aren’t even touching the floor, as the miniature is held aloft by her flowing mane!
 
On the battlefield, Jain Zar fights even more aggressively than before (if such a thing is possible for Khaine’s most prolific blademaiden), swapping her old Disarming Strike ability for a more thoroughly slaughterous replacement, The Storm of Silence…
PsyAwk-Sep16-StormofSilence-1jefu.jpg
With this ability at her disposal, simply hurl Jain Zar into the largest enemy units and watch gleefully as she blends her way through them like a bladed whirlwind!
The incredible new miniature of Jain Zar will be on its way soon… as will her nemesis – who could that possibly be? You’ll have to tune in next Monday to find out! Until then, why not pick up a Triumvirate of Ynnead to spearhead your Ynnari warhost in preparation for Jain Zar’s arrival?

We also have confirmation (end of the video) that she will be released in October. And there is Drazhar next Monday to look forward to!

A definite pre order. This gives me high hopes for the future of the Aeldari model line.

Oh wow, not a single Rumour Engine belonged to her. That's... strange, to say the least.

 

With Drazhar being the last obvious reveal left, I suspect the Sunday following next Monday to be the preorder annoucement for Phoenix Rising, and we'll get more actual info on the event itself the week leading up to the preorder.

The face could have done with being slightly more angular imo (closer to the original concept art) but she's still very good :) If the other phoenix lords are in the same playing field, that'll be pretty awesome.

 

The armour on the left arm and legs looks rather similar to the Dark Eldar Wytch armour - I wonder if that trait will be shared with the other Phoenix Lords, or if it will be reserved to only Ynnari characters

Such a fantastic model! Still retains the identity of the original sculpt whilst looking incredibly dynamic. I can't wait to see if GW redo some of the other Phoenix Lords in plastic. Baharroth was always a favourite of mine from back in the 90's.

Wasn't there a rumour engine with a bunch of hair?

Big fan of her. She looks great. Also, I knew the old one was old, but 1994 makes it older than me by a year.

Nice. Being fully off the ground is cool - regular banshees on foot, exarchs mid-leap, Jain Zar in the air - though I'm not wild about how chunky that bound hair thing is at the end. Otherwise great, proportionate weapons, a face that could very easily have looked goofy that now looks coldly mythological or at least more clearly kabuki-inspired, big hair that is slightly less big than before, a headcrest reduced to a foot and a half from the three foot it appears as in some art, it's good.

There's a few elements I was ready to attribute to a new Ynnari-inspired 'joint Eldar' aesthetic; the trim on her boots, the additional DE-ish ornate armour on her left arm, the cruelly hooked triskele. But looking at Jes Goodwin's original model, they're all there, just clearer now and plucked out by the paint scheme. Love to see the old concept art.

Belly button's kinda silly though.

Can't wait to see what happens when some proper painters get their hands on her!

Like always I feel the model is going to look better with a different paint job.

But the pose is really off to me. It's like she's leaping up to start some sort of devil may cry air combo with her spear into range weapon. She's kind of just in the air, mid strike, about to throw. Would have liked to see more forward momentum. Hopefully it's just the angle.

So why is Jain Zar a big deal in the lore?

That's excellent. Really showcases what GW can do with plastic nowadays. It looks so light and the movement is great.

 

It'll be interesting to see the others. Not all will be as dynamic, I expect. Baharroth could be really interesting.


C+C always welcome on my Titanic Plog. Should really be painting Crimson Fists.

I always found Jain Zhar's original sculpt to be a complete visual mess, like the 3d equivalent of some of the worst black and white sprites from the original Game Boy edition of Pokemon where you couldn't work out quite what it was supposed to be depicting.

 

Seeing a brightly coloured clearly defined version just feels extra weirder after all this time.

Like the mask (less goblin-y), don't like the hair or that it's the structural component for adding height to the model.

Solid B- to B for me.

It's almost the same pose too, just with better proportions and less "compressed".

Paintjob feels kinda uninspired (though i guess its consistent with the general HB scheme)

 

But man it's kind of a weird feeling to see this 2nd edition mini finally getting an update
