Boxes of Eldar were seen sitting in a Warehouse. This is what was seen..........

These rumors are from July of 2012. Of course they have become more relevant with the Eldar rumors of late, because there has been talk of an Uber Wraithlord and two eldar flyers that will be released with the Eldar sometime after Tau (presumably after a few months of a break).


These are rumors, please take them as that. salt is required. Please remember that these rumors came from last year. Thanks to all the comments linking the old rumor bits back for us to check out again. (Sentaph)

These rumors are currently sitting on the 3++ forums. Here is the link to the page that this rumor is coming from.

Eldar Warpspiders/Everguard

look like old versions but have two rods for upper arms and thighs instead of just one, some have feet, some hooves, large fins at the back

Cataphracts: float/fly, fluttering cloth pieces instead of legs, wing-shaped shields and spears, segmented/armored head

Eldar Swooping Hawks
5 per box,
 larger wings, not so stiff and two-dimensional, several straps of clothes from the loin, wrists and ankles, model stand on these straps, both shoulder plates have inbuilt missile racks, Exarch has two shoulder-mounted blasters and a scimitar in one hand and two optional rifles, one is the same as the old exarch had, the other is a small star cannon

  6. Awesome! I think that if even half these are true, the new Eldar will be amazing. As rumors that autarchs (and probably Phoenix Lords) make their aspect troops, new jetbike options, and new wraith options, we're looking at 3-4 distinct army styles!

    Side note, i think it wad decided that the phantomwaecter was the spirit warrior, and the halcines czadores were swooping hawks.

    These rumors are really getting me excited!

  7. I must say, that Warp Spider dual kit sounds awesome. About time those bad boys got an upgrade.

    Actually, I guess it's about time all of Eldar got an upgrade...

  9. Just based on all the relases we have seen for 6th ed I just can't see THAT much new stuff coming out for this book. Just like the Tau, Demons, Chaos Warriors and Chaos Marines its going to be 2-3 new plastic boxes, 1 mega boxed kit and a handful of finecast releases.

    Some new flyers, new plastic wraithguard kit with different options and a few updated kits to update the last of the 2nd ed kits like the Warp Spiders and Jetbikes is all I would expect to see. Eldar have been the same since second ed, no way we are getting 15-20 new units and this is coming from someone who is about as excited as Natfka for this release :)

    1. I felt the same way at first. However, we have the jet, the wrsithguard, and the spirit warrior confirmed. We've seen new jetbike sculpts. We also have multiple new characters confirmed. With troop swaps for aspect warriors, those sculpts were likely to be reevaluated. And we've been waiting for codex fortifications.

      Not to mention the rumors had fortifications and multi-kit boxes before GW really started that.

      Delete
  10. It says the avatar of the young king is getting a "new" model, but to my knowledge it's never had one. In the fluff the young king is the sacrifice made to the Avatar and not the Avatar himself. This individual is also completely destroyed by the Avatar, so this would be a fluff change. Also I've never heard of Halcones Cazadores, cool name though. I hope these Xentarch are just being mistaken for resculpts of the Pheonix Lords. Thanks Natfka

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Its really just the full title of the Avatar as far as i know. It also differentiates it from some of the larger avatars from Epic. It shouldn't necessarily precipitate a fluff change.

      Delete
    2. Forgot: unlessthey radically change their equipment, the xentarchs aren't pheonix lords. Probably autarchs or exarchs. Since the exarchs are listed in the box, and autarchs can apparently take a path and make it scoring, I'm leaning towards the latter.

      Delete
    3. Just a note, the old old avatar was tiny (same height as a new necron overlord at most)! Could be a return to concentrated awesomeness :P

      Delete
  11. Can't wait till the Eldar codex comes and goes to get to more intresting armies...

    ReplyDelete
  12. So it sounds like they're going to kick the Eldar out the door right after Tau. Wonder if that means May or June? They're really picking up the pace of these things - hoping I get to see Tyranids and (sigh) Sisters of Battle.

    ...but not TOO soon, I'm going to be broke after the Tau drop.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That was the sense I was getting: 'Nids dropping sometime early next year and Sisters dropping sometime around the time GW sells off to another company.

      Delete
    2. Mike- not sure if 'GW selling off' was just left-field tongue in cheek but I was formulating the same thought. We'll see in about 14 months

    3. The latest rumors still have high elves between tau and eldar, correct?

      Delete
  13. Please let them allow for flak options for the EML

    ReplyDelete
  14. Oh! A few questions along with this. Is Xentarch the new name for Exarch? What is the black warden? In the fluff the eldritch raiders are Yriels personal corsairs. Will we be seeing all the factions of eldar on the table top? I'm working on corsairs and exoditrs right now, so this is really interesting!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I've been doing conversions for Corsair as well. This would help out a lot!

      Delete
    2. Could a Black Warden be a Black library guard? Just guessing.

      Delete
  15. Can we start calling the 'über' wraith guard something like 'apex' or 'prime' or something? I felt it was fine with the tau but if large models are going to be a thing then maybe some distinction?
    I may just be over complicating things.

    Love to hear about serpent/dragon riders. Seems like the whole eldar line is going to be upgraded with an Elfin theme (I even like some of the parallels between chaos if the rider and avatar are any indication)

    ReplyDelete
  16. Wow, I hope these are true. Some of these sound like They could be Exodites, I really didn't see them doing that. But it would be very cool if they did.

    1. Holy crap, that def supports the above and there is alot of other stuff in there. If thats real I'm definitely going to have a way to sell a Kidney and part of my liver. I wonder how far that goes into the future(if true of coarse)

      Delete
    2. A lot of that looks like it could be from the allies supplement, Death Watch, Ogrun Freebooters, SOB, Kroothawks, Cult Hybred pack, Harlequin Solitaire and it even lists Cypher. Since that stuff is at the top followed by the Eldar that could mean that the Allies supplement is next followed by the New Eldar Codex.

      Delete
    3. That would be The List (tm) from last August. For which someone supposedly got fired from GW.

      Quite a few denialists around claiming the list was the most elaborate hoax ever, except that the Hobbit part (often omitted on 40K rumour sites) contained releases that could not have been "guessed" because either the names were not public or the characters did not appear in the book but appeared in the film (Azog).

      Delete
    4. Thought that list got debunked it had certain names for some of the lord of the rings models that have been produced but are way off the mark eg the men of dale, was called something like adventure set men of dale on that list.

      Delete
    5. Aw, thats to bad, but I guess thats good for my liver and kidneys. Tho some some of it does match whats above.

      Delete
    6. thats an old list from August 2012 or sometime around then... They were linked in previous posts about the Tau in the Allied post by Natfka and one or two others. Last year however, most believed it to be fake...

      Delete
    7. Well the list came out in august, and the Eldar models are from July. So either the list backs it up, or it's just cribbing off of it.

      Delete
    8. Its inconsistent with what we know of the current tau release. No defense platform, mako, new vespid or kroot. Farsight is being released in April, not at some point after July (as was the date originally associated with the manifest).

      Don't believe the lies!

  18. I was just thinking about kitbashing some exodite dragon riders. Perhaps now I won't have to!

      As for the FW and PF characters, I hope they come with alternative heads. I'd prefer to not struggle through painting tau flesh any more than I have to. Nonetheless, I'll be picking them up on release day.

    2. This looks like the same list we saw here over the summer, at which point it was suggested to be product packaging numbers for releases starting in July 2013. Based on its inconsistencies with the known Tau release, I'd say this does not represent the current planned releases for 40k.

  22. Can't wait for this. The eldar are my favourite army and it is good to see them back in the limelight. I can see me being very poor once this codex hits.

  31. From what I remember, this leaked list was pointed as a fake by Hasting's very sources.

    And that's really better, because "Xentarch" is an awful name meaning nothing, whatever it could be.

    1. This comment has been removed by the author.

    2. From the description the Xentarchs seem to be Autarchs, which ties into the rumors of Autarchs taking Paths and making those troops. Important to note that all these titles were translated (hence Halcones Cazadores being swooping hawks).

      Although they are certainly still rumors, I tend to give them some weight. Every leak, especially those from Hastings have only backed them up. For instance, plastic bikes, plastic wraiths, CC wraith variants, giant wraith variant, and the fighter/bomber dual kit. More importantly, these rumors contained dual kits and fortifications before GW started using those extensively. It was also a very different and specific means of leaking that we know is possible since GW builds models before the codex. If I remember correctly the Dark Eldar models were done a year before their codex.

      There's still a lot on this list I'm wary of, but nearly half of it has been confirmed by other sources so far.

      Delete
    3. What's in a name? The names on The List could be simply "working names", not necessarily those of the final product.

      Delete
    4. Well, these rumors are from the actual boxes being seen in a warehouse, so that's unlikely. Is it possibly some sort of wolf guard battle leader style bargain hq?

      Delete
  32. I'm worried about Phoenix Lords. looking at the last few coded setups, they only are giving one ew out (cms, da, cd.. all three only had one each) and that is an issue for the lords. I am wondering which one will get to keep it. will it be the avenger? Seeing as he's the dad of all of them, that would make him the most likely choice. maybe we will see a deviation from the one per army that has been going on, but it will probably come with the trade off of something like all of them are considered to be one unique entry(translation, one per army, regardless of size) or that they do only have one ew, but the other lords get autopass look out sir in an aspect unit.
    Just figured I would voice my one and only real concern about the new Eldar that I oh so much want NOW.
