Eldar Flyers and Jetbike models will be some of the most anticipated releases we have on the horizon. Here are some rumors giving us a brief description of what these may be looking like.


please remember that these are rumors, some salt is always required

I can confirm the new jetbike is awesome and looks very similar to DE one with the rider leaning forward more, a larger engine beneath/behind the rider.

the fighter is also similar to DE apart from weapon and slight changes to wing and nose shape, I'm lead to belive there are multi options to the fighters weapon systems, being shrieken cannons, , scatter laser, distortion cannon the last I may be wrong, as some sort bomb I believe is a distortion bomb is rumoured as an option

  2. I'm really looking forward to eldar coming out. I don't have any but it's one book I really want for fluff etc never collected them as when I got back into 40k my only opponent already had them.

    The DE bikes are amazing looking and if eldar go the same way I won't be able to resist picking up a few! My poor wallet!

  3. I'm most looking forward to not having to pay $102 for a five-man Wraithguard unit. I always loved Wraith constructs, hopefully they make good allies.

    1. Let's just hope that apart from being cheap, they also have good rules!

    2. There's nothing wrong with Wraithguard at the moment, per-say. They just lack something that makes them any good, and combined with Wraithsight, having to add a Warlock makes an already expensive unit more expensive, just for to guarantee they actually work.

  4. My assumptions for Eldar. The aspect squads will auto have Exarchs and a couple warrior powers that mimic USRs.

    Really wanna see the Dire Avengers get a anti-grav weapons platform.

    All catapults firing at 18" isn't to much to ask with marines now moving and firing bolters at targets 24" away.

    Wanna see our GOD get a couple cool powers.

    Oh, and Divination powers that tell us what our opponent is thinking! Replay your entire turn sounds fair to me.

    Psychic Storm needs to be badass! Will we see DOOM? Will we see the 1st power that requires 3 power pts to cast? I could go on, I'll shut up now.

    1. I take it your joking about the replaying the entire turn - This is 6th edition, broken powers are gone.

    2. @Mike. A power like that would be silly in any edition, but no...I'm dead serious! Eldar should get two turns for every one any other army gets. It is only right. ;)

    3. Catapults don't need to be 18" if the Eldar have a better way to get in, deliver the firepower, and get back out swiftly.

      Which would actually be far more appropriate for Eldar than simply making the gun shoot farther.

      Space Marines shoot 24" because they simply have a bigger, more brutal gun that fires with incredible force. What Space Marines do isn't an indicator of what Eldar should do, or vice versa.

    4. I must say I agree with Joshua. The Eldar need at least two turns to every one of the opponent (maybe three if you bring an awesome psyker with a time distortion power). I don't agree with the catapults thing, however. I think we all know the way to fix Dire Avengers and ensure a proper balance is to give them D-cannons.

    5. @Mcdoogle. I would agree that a reliable way to blink in and out of range would help the catapult's current issues, but it isn't possible for me to predict what cool rules 6th Eldar will get, so the only thing left to me is to rationalize how some weapons changes may help. This also comes from a player who remembers when his catapults mirrored stormbolters with a 24" range in 2nd edition.

  5. Almost definitely new Eldar bikes, I remember reading an article back on GW when the new DE models/bikes came out. It mentioned that the Eldar bikes are being worked on at the same time as Dark Eldar.

    Just so happened that I started collecting a Saim Hann warhost - after reading that I put the project on the back burner!

  6. I have plenty of the old bikes - I may pick up some of the new ones to make Farseer/Warlock - but I'm not replacing all of them.

  7. Sounds like the new jetbikes are the sculpt we saw at gamesday a few years ago?

    1. Hopefully they don't look not quite as, vintage, for lack of a better term.

  8. I think new bike were always going to be in the release but could you imagine the uproar if the new book came out and no new bikes.

    Though I'm not and Eldar player I'm really looking forward to this release. I'm a big fan of the fluff and character of the race and I have two good friends who do play Eldar so it will be cool to see their armies get a boost and some new models.

  9. I was the only Eldar player in a local GT. Only...there were 4 ork players. A new Eldar Codex cannot happen soon enough.

  10. I think what ever ends up being released we'll see a huge increase in people playing the Craftworlders.

    The usual 'ooh-new-shiny' folk along with the revival of a lot of people who seem to have semi-retired Eldar quite sometime ago (I'm in this camp - all my stuff is getting stripped down ready to re-paint next week) and of course the faithful few who have battled on.

    I'd most like to see the rumored plastic Wraithguard - something I've wanted a lot of but been unable to financially justify since I first picked Eldar up - new Jetbikes - my old ones died long, long ago - and, non-model related, give Eldar the psychic powers they deserve...pleeeaaassseeee

    Don't think I'm to fussed about a monsterous creature, especially anything Riptide-ish. A nice flyer would be appreciated though along with some solid flak/AA firepower the Elar should really be capable of.

    June can't come soon enough, until then we'll have o hang off all these rumors! :D

  12. My FLGS exploded with tau players, so it will be interesting to see how many jump onto the eldar release.

  13. I am one of those faithful few who has stuck it out with the eldar. Hoping mine and others loyalty is rewarded!

    That being said I have held off on jetbikes and wraithguard until they get rereleased.
