This morning we have an additional set to the rumors that we had last week for the "still a ways out" Eldar codex. This will be a hard codex for me to not start, but you never know until it comes out. Right now all my money is headed toward Chaos for 6th edition.


Please remember that these are rumors, and early ones at that. Take with salt.

I've hear there have been CAD sculpts seen in the past 6 months for all of the aspects AND wraithguard, just dont know if they will be finecast or get broke out to plastic kits yet.

My newest batch of rumors here is coming from playtest notes, which are notoriously unreliable this far out form codex release, but they do indicate the direction being thought. (referring to rumors in this link (Eldar Rumors)

Also a bit more on the wave serpent. Couple things have been tried on the shield, from 4+ invul on any penetrating hit, to something similar to the necron shield where the armor drops after its penetrated once. The rumors are all over the board there, but one thing is certain that mechanic is being looked at and will lkely work differently in the final codex.

As far as the phoenix lords go, they are rumored to provide a table wide buff to their aspect units while on the board. For instance Karandras is rumored to grant +1A or +1S to Scorpions.

I've been debating whether to post this or not, but I may as well. This is what I've heard is coming in terms of kits:
New Avatar sculpt
New Falcon variants
Entirely new vehicle
New jetbikes and vyper jetbike models
New character sculpts, new special character(s) and new SC sculpts
New versions of Aspect warriors, similar to current models but 'more dynamic'

  1. Please Lord. Have mercy and don't let GW screw another Xenos army over. I like hearing these things but I kinda would have guessed most of this. What I am really looking for is what the new stuff is going to be like what flyer should we be expecting. what kinda of new rules will some of these have like the falcon. the falcon hase been somewhat useless as a transport and is much too expensive to buy for its guns and with really NO good special rules it is nearly never taken.

  2. The Eldar avatar is one of those models I'm not even sure needs a revamp. Its one of the most iconic models out there today considering how long its been around with very little change in appearance.

    I hope they don't change him to much.

  3. If I were to play Eldar again, I think I'd just get the FW Avatar, it's not terribly expensive and just gorgeous.
    A table-wide buff per PL is an interesting thought, though I fear it might be difficult to balance, once the eldar player just spams, say, Dire Avengers.
    Also, this might be just me, but I find the current banshees quite ugly. Not current demonette-level ugly, but a far cry from the old ones.

    1. I find the new banshees way prettier than the older models.. I hope they stay this way and only new poses will be done..

    2. You mean like balancing table wide buffs such as Vulkan?

  5. Hopefully Eldar come out as first 6th codex. Orcs were 1st 8th edition fantasy, I'd settle for the same with Eldar.
