There is always some doubt when it comes down to rumors about an upcoming codex release, so additional sources, or bits of information are always going to be welcome. This morning we have more confirmations that Eldar are coming.


Please remember that these are rumors.

*I'm sorry, I thought I'd also mentioned this previously. I'll also confirm that we're getting our pointy-eared friends in June



via 75hastings69 on Warseer This has been up here before, but I figured it was worth repeating this morning.
*Eldar, new flier, characters and a new uber wraith guard thingy.

*there's a huge wraith guard construct type thing (similar to tau) IIRC it has two builds (shooty & cc), also IIRC the actual wraith guard have some kind of CC build option.
stahly

*we will see updated jetbikes for the Eldar release and/or plastic Wraithguard?

  2. If it's anything like the Chaos Marine release, they'll probably have a few new kits, maybe one or two replacement kits (like the Raptors) and then the rest is going to be exactly the same, only in Finecast.

    My hopes are not up for everything to be converted to plastic. Otherwise, we'd already have, at the very least, new Plague Marines.

    1. Agreed, thining "everything plastic nowz" is a bit overkill.
      At least if something already have a reasonably new "in store" fine cast kit.

    2. They will eventually be plastic, but right now it's about getting army up-to-date for 6th first.

    3. A few plastic kits would be nice seeing as right now, eldar have bikes, guardians/avengers, wraithlords, gravtank, viper & platforms in plastic. everything else is already f'cast. I would like to see in plastic the two other troop choices(don't see why a troop should be 'cast)

  3. I'd only be sold if there are plastic Aspect Warriors and Rangers/Pathfinders.

    Unless I went for a Iyanden themed army. Then the plastic Wraith Guard, Wraithlords and giant Wraith thingy would be cool. Speaking of Iyanden, I wonder if they'll bring back the female spiritseer. Can't remember her name, but sure I saw her in a Codex once.

  4. My only concern is where is the Knight going to go???

    Elite, Fast, Heavy? Riptide is an Elite choice, correct?

    I could pray for the Fast Attack choice since that is currently only occupied by Spiders in my force - but who knows?

    I would assume Elites, but we already have so many options there.

    1. If everything stays in the current slots and the Knight goes to HS, i'm going to throw something.

      Still, if the autarch rumor is ALSO true, it frees up some space. But, having WL, the Knights, Prism, HS batteries, Falcons all in HS is stupid.

    2. Or it will just give you a lot of different ways to play Eldar. Gee...what a horrible idea.

      Delete
    3. I agree - a horrible Idea.

      I am guessing again - but I'd say the spectre class will possibly be Fast based on abilities and rumor for them being a spider/spectre box set.

      Could we get a Warlock in the Knight as an HQ ??? :)

  5. The two old characters are Nuadhu Fireheart, Wild Rider of Saim Hann, and Iyanna Arienal, Spiritseer of Iyanden. There was a third in a WhiteDwarf issue, who was a traveling Bard Exarch, with a Sonic Jetbike, but I can't remember his name.

    1. Personally I'd love for these three characters to be brought into the new codex, but at the top of my list would be a Warp Spider PL.

      Delete
    2. I am surprised to admit that I have never heard of this Bard Exarch on a sonic jetbike. I love odd bits of ancient Eldar models, characters, etc. Does anyone have any additional information on this character?

    3. The best Charecter I can find who matches the description is a chap named Yrrthilien Mournsong. Lexicanum has a (lengthy by Lexicanum's standards) article on him here:

      On a side note, there is a Canon Warp Spider PL-Like figure -

    4. I'll look for his name, but this is his story as best as I can remember it. He was on the artisan path of musician, and collected and learned all of the stories of his Craftworld. His family who had strong ties to the path of the Warrior, did not approve so he left through the web way collecting and and playing all of the stories he knew at Craftworlds, Maidenworlds, and Exodite planets. Upon his return to his Craftworld he found it utterly destroyed. He searched the ruins for his family's home, and donned his fathers armour. Forming a new Aspect warrior class, and now spends the rest of his days traveling the web way much like the harlequins assisting any Eldar in any fight. I'd like to think of him as a Viking searching for the end of his life in battle.

      Also thanks for the link about the Warpspiders. That's a very interesting bit of fluff.

      Thank you for Iyanna Arienal. In my mind I can see the picture in the codex, but name was elluding me.

    7. Quick Additional - Would like to see this guy in the next Eldar Codex. Seems a lot more interesting than most characters I could name X3

      Delete
    8. Anyone know of any other old Eldar characters with rules?

      Delete
    9. Very interesting. It seems like it will be quite difficult to track down a copy of Citadel Journal #3, however.

      Not that that will deter me, now.

      Delete
    10. I had found a roughly good digital copy, but sadly my PC is being gutted, and turned into a whole new beast.

      Delete
    11. Yrrthilien would make a really cool character upgrade for Guardian Jetbike Squadrons.

      That would be really cool if every army had a named character in each unit.

      Delete
  6. Arn't both of these more than a week old?

  7. hastings part is, Neko chiming in is new though.

  8. I really would like to NOT have a huge Eldar walker but I wont complain if we do.

    1. I would like to see the Wraithlord updated with skyfire options in the heavy support section, and an Elite option that is bigger and badder with closer range weaponry and cc options

      Delete
    2. I can feel the Iyanden love! New Wraithguard, giant Wraith construct, revamped Wraithlords, Iyanna; just awesome!

      Delete
    3. I have yet to see Naftka post anything saying Iyanna would be the new character. I was only posting the old characters that I know of. I would love to see them all make a comeback, and a couple of new ones too.

      Delete
    4. Illic Nightspear and Eldorath Starbane pehaps , would deffinatly go for a pathfinder character!

      Delete
  9. Is this uber wraithgaurd just a wraithlord?

    ReplyDelete
  10. What next I wonder? Tyranids is my guess?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Vanilla marines then Tyranids will be the first codex of 2014

      Delete
  11. Also I need to pick me up a box of Dryads to use as Plague Bearers so I can taunt those pointy eared xeno's! You know what I'm talking about. :P

    ReplyDelete
  12. So does this link in with the '2013 release list' thing we saw last august? Have we heard of the 'Eldar Lamia Strike Fighter / Moon Siren Bomber' things yet?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Is it overreaching if I want a solitare?

    ReplyDelete
  14. As I already have 4500pts of eldar remaking old minis in plastic is not a big deal for me as I won't be replacing anything. I do want plastic jetbikes and wraithguard though. My main wish is for a decent codex at last!

    1. Same. Although I might replace my 3rd Edition Striking Scorpions and Hawks if they got plastic.
