More confirmations that Eldar are to be released on June are coming in. In fact some recognizable names (unfortunately I can't name and have deleted and blacked out) are confirming the dates. Its looking very likely that Eldar are indeed right around the corner.


Now of course all this really could be nothing, after all these go down as rumors, and he said she said.

As for the blacking out, I apologize, I couldn't figure out the another way at the time to relay more confirmations.

On                     I was playing alongside                      who I've known casually somewhat for a few years through gaming.
He now works on                     .
He knows how much I like Eldar and he admires my collection.
He told me the Codex was a June Release.

I saw                               here in                   the following week and he'd seen him and been told the same.

  1. Vague rumors. Solid rumors. As long as all these rumors keep pointing to Eldar I'm gonna be a VERY happy wargamer in a couple of months time. Keep 'em coming Natfka - all news is good news!

    1. There have been plenty of rumors prior reporting this fact, though. Also, it's generally a thing that whenever we see a new model pic from GW, its faction is the next to be released.

    2. Usually once one person breaks the silence others with information feel safe discussing what they know.

  5. I am so damn excited, I have put off getting into 6th edition until this. Me and a small circle have been playing 5th for the last few years and I have had all my finess and tactics thwarted by power armoured thugs. Its been like playing with a glass spear, that isn't very sharp. In fact its pretty much just glass.
    But no longer!!!

    1. If anything Eldar should be anti-Necron

    2. I'd be more worried about Eldar alliances with Tau than the other way around considering their "battle brother" status, and the buffs the right independent characters might bring.

  7. Dire Avengers and Fire Dragons as Troop choices?

    Or - 5 Units of Dragons (3 Elite and 2 Troops) - oh my....

    1. Dire Avengers are already a Troop choice. Five units of Fire Dragons are not that strong how it sounds.

      Delete
    2. Yes I know DA are troops already. And if Dragons are not getting a points decrease (as reported the rest of the aspects are) maybe they are receiving a special rule???

  8. They will have some clause that says if chosen as part of the primary detachment for the army you make take X as troop choice or something like that.

    Anyone know how far away Orks are?

  9. Currently playing in a GT with Eldar. This made my night. As for the GT, I think I'll sit out the 2nd day of getting my eldar @ss raped.

  10. Sorry thought Eldar were definitely in June! Not sure why it's still considered a rumour. ;)

  11. Amazone how they keep Pushing dexes.
    I would rather See some Second waves for CSM & DAs at this Point.
    Everyone should have a dex, but its a Bit redundand to releas dexes that Suck so Bad vs crons & GKs.

    ReplyDelete
  12. What models do csm and da need that haven't been released? I would rather see all the old dexes updated rather than model updates that aren't needed.

    1. Agree with you, i'd rather see old dexes updated first.

      However, CSM has some scope e.g. Noise Marines, and arguably some of the other resin/plastic combo kits. I'd also like to see a Helbrute kit with options, but i guess a dreadnought conversion is pretty easy.

      But other dexes are way way ahead in priority e.g. SOB. The releases this year if they continue like this have been awesome.

  13. There's nothing wrong with the DA and CSM dexs against crons and GK,s you just have to change you're list. In a recent tournament with around fifty players with descent lists ie.SW rune priest,long fangs and grey hunters, cron flyer spam, ork battlewagon rolla lists, nid monster hordes and GK gun lines the top three were CSM. Only one DA player though, but considering how well the vanilla lists did the DA is very competetive if only for the reduced points costs.

    1. In the UK 40K GT tournament recently with about 80 players the top 15 players said a lot of things about 40k.

      1. Paul Burke - Grey Knights w/ Necrons
      2. Josh Roberts - Necrons w/ Chaos Space Marines
      3. Matthew Edmonds - Chaos Daemons
      4. Dan Sackett - Dark Eldar w/ Eldar
      5. Scott Nicholls - Chaos Daemons
      6. Adam Ryland - Chaos Daemons
      7. James McNaughton - Eldar w/ Dark Eldar
      8. Nathan Roberts - Chaos Space Marines w/ Orks
      9. Eric Hoath - Necrons
      10. Kriss Johnson - Space Marines w/ Grey Knights
      11. Paul Crogan - Necrons
      12. Bernard Lee - Grey Knights
      13. Alex Harrison - Imperial Guard w/ Grey Knights
      14. Stu Robertson - Dark Eldar w/ Eldar
      15. Kiran Reddy - Dark Eldar w/ Eldar

      In a tournament setting you cannot "change your list" just to tackle one or two types of army or else you compromise your effectiveness against other types of lists. Its needs to be an "all comers" list you are playing.
