While Eldar are rumored to be at some point mid to late next year, we have some very precise rumors on exactly what models would be released for them. I do like seeing this, and there are some very new things here that I have not seen or heard of before. So check these out.....

Please remember that these are rumors, and to take with a little bit of salt.

via Kirby from 3++   (check out his new forums here 3++ Forums)
Been informed there are some Eldar boxes floating around warehouses. How long they get sat on before a codex is released though, who knows. I'm going to guess around a year off. We know CSM are next and then Dark Angels with the Hobbit crashing into scenes December, that could push DA back to early 2013. So mid 2013 is the likely bet for Eldar is something doesn't shove them out of the way.

Here's what I've been told re: boxes. No rules.

plastic Warpspiders/Everguard
plastic Skycharriots/Shining Spears
plastic Phantomwaechter - these might be the shadow spectres?
plastic Jetbikes
plastic Wraithguard/Cataphracts
plastic flyer combi-kit - The flyer is pretty large and has a crossbow shape, two canopies, one fin. The main variant on the cover has some lances and a large dorsal distort cannon. The other variant has extra downward/sideway thrusters, but I don’t remember if it has a different weapon loadout.
plastic phoenix lord niadhau - For Shining Spears, appears to be on a Vyper jetbike.
plastic webway gate
resin box Avatar
resin Black Warden - The Black Warden looks like an female Autarch. She has a shurikencatapult and a feathered guardian helm with an eye on it.
resin Dire Avenger Xentarch - Appears to be a new English name for Exarch?
resin Howling Banshee Xentarch
resin Fire Dragon Xentarch
resin Striking Scorpion Xentarch
resin box Dragon Riders
resin box Eldritch Raiders - They look like guardians but have no helms and wear scarfs around the lower head and swashbuckle belts. They are very individually equipped, have all sorts blades, pistols and/or rifles. (potentially Storm Guardians?)
resin box Halcones Cazadores
resin Warlock

  2. It's impressive that we've got a sighting of what seems to be the whole range of new Eldar kits coming up... but we still don't know whether we're getting new Terminators or Noise Marines or not.

  6. When my grandmother wanted juicy gossip and rumors, she read The National Enquirer, when I want juicy gossip and rumors, I read Natfka.

    1. Difference is one is completely whack the other is usually true....

      Usually.....

    2. The major difference here: Natfka has good tactics articles on how to properly use Dark Eldar (pre-Thriller, Michael Jackson models) and your Grotesque (Elizabeth Taylor models).

  7. So I was looking for an exarch to my shining spears and I noticed that he isn't up on the website anymore and the spears box is of one bike rather than two now.

  8. niadhau sounds like Neru Fireheart from the 3rd ed Eldar codex, a 'warhost' leader who road the platform of a Viper and fought from it in hand to hand.

    His model was kinda cool, and I always kick myself for not getting one since it's impossible to fine now.

  9. I cannot tell you how much bullshit is in this...

    Everguard in a double Box with Warpspiders....yeah- not gonna happen...ever...
    Phantomwaechter is a bad german translation of Wraithguard- so again, bullshit!
    I just give it a brake here, because all the names of the units are so bad, that they must be false! Black Warden? Xentarch? Cataphract? Niadhu the pheonixlord on Vyper(this was actually funny)?
    ...
    seriously, when was the last time a rumour from 3++ wasn't shit?

    1. "What do Humans know of our pain? We have sung songs of lament since before your ancestors crawled on their bellies from the sea."

      About time we get some half-decent rumours, regardless of whether they're false or not.

    2. Though you didnt state it the right way this is false. Eldar codex is still being created. Its now in the "Cutting" phase where things are cut and edited. After that you play test it. After that you cut/modify, play test again. At this point the models that were not cut originally will be sculpted and produced. By aroumd then codex is finished amd sits in the "black cage" or a large room with no light, inside boxes.

      We are barely still in the steps of the first cut.

    5. You, wise sir.. Mr. Logan. If you can enlighten me with a "Y" or "N".

      Plastic Thousand Sons?

    6. Phantomwaechter was so bad, I almost chocked on the dattes I was eating. If one wants to fake a rumor, at least attempt to make it remotely believeable.
      The correct, if odd, german translation would be Phantomdroiden.
      That being said, I wonder if GW could even manage to ship out stuff now and then keep mum about it for around a year.

    7. One does not simply...

  11. "resin box Eldritch Raiders - They look like guardians but have no helms and wear scarfs around the lower head and swashbuckle belts. They are very individually equipped, have all sorts blades, pistols and/or rifles. (potentially Storm Guardians?)"

    In the new rulebook, there are drawings of Eldar Corsair weapons. Maybe that's what this refers to?

    I dunno about the veracity of this rumor but it does sound plausible to me in terms of what is in the list.

    I just wish Chaos and Eldar are not too close from each other so I can save up a little in between the two.

    1. Considering the last codex we got was 8 months ago I don't think you've anything to worry about.

  12. Regarding The Hobbit "pushing" other releases out of the way, that apparently won't happen.
    The release schedule for 40k and WFB will stay the same. The Hobbit releases will be on top of that.
    So Dark Angels at the end of this year doesn't seem too unlikely.

  14. Good to see some fresh Eldar rumors.
    Doesn't matter if they make sense or not.. It's just nice to see SOMETHING about them.. :)

  15. It has been said the same thing about Sisters of Battle... more or less...

  16. You can see the halcones cazadores eldar in the spanish GW page, they are finecast swooping hawks. The hawks squad is no longer available.

  17. It is with sadness I shelve my Craftworld Eldar and focus on my Orks until such time as new Eldar codex and models arrive. I just can't take the current army and models serious any more, in light of these revelations.
