With the new Eldar codex now out, its exciting that specific craftworlds/and other groups are going to be handled with smaller 32 page supplement. (Watch every supplement be exactly 32 pages like the codices are all 104).
This first supplement Iyanden, is supposed to be released on June 15th, and yes, I will end up with it and get a review out as soon as I can get it (on release day hopefully again at midnight).
I cannot wait for more of these to be released for each army, and look forward to hearing more information about which ones will be released in the future.
For now though, regarding the new supplement, it is supposed to consist of the following.
*Full Color Book with New Artwork
*Detailed Background of the craftworld and its people
*New Timelines (for some reason I always read these in detail)
*Colour Schemes and iconography of different houses within Iyanden
What are these rules? Well we were shown a brief of them in the GW video released here
And of course a another dedicated person was able to slow down those video shots to give us the following rules that were released by GW for the video for the supplement

*Celestial Lance - 35pts
This crystal lance was once borne by Drastanta, Tempest of Starlight and Phoenix Lord of the Shining Spears. Alas, Drastanta was ever over-proud and much given to needless lone battles. Drastanta came late to Asurmen's final stand and found his mentor already fallen before the foul might of the Keeper of Secrets N'kari. Keening with rage and sorrow, Drastanta slew the Daemon, the energies of the lance shattering the creature's vile spirit. Drastanta emerged from the fires of Asure where his mentor had not, but he soon vanished into the tumult of the war-torn galaxy. In the centuries since his final recorded battle, the Celestial Lance has passed from shrine to shrine and craftworld to craftworld, the better to keep alive the tales...
*The Wraithforge Stone - 30pts
This was once the waystone of the long dead Bonesinger Ivaril Brightshard. It was Ivaril who aided Mehlendri Silversoul in adapting the infinity circuit into a soul reservoir, and Iyanden has never known a more skilled shaper than he. Ivaril's soul has long since departed into the infinity circuit, but legend tells that the echo of it remains in the Wraithforge Stone and allows its bearer to manipulate wraithbone into new forms just as Ivavril once did.
*During each of your Movement phases, nominate a single Wraithlord or Wraithknight within 6" of the bearer and roll a D6. On a roll of a 1 or 2 nothing happens. On a...
*Warlords - When choosing an Iyanden army, you can choose one Wraithlord or Wraithknight to be your Warlord, even though it is not an HQ choice.
*Shadow Council - Iyanden army may take up to 5 Spirit Seers as a single HQ choice, rather than 1.
*Gifts of Asuryan - Any character in your army that may select Remants of Glory, may instead select from Gifts of Asuryan presented opposite, as the points cost shown. A character cannot choose items from both lists. Note the Wraithforge Stone and Guardian Helm of Xallathon do not replace a weapon.
*Spiritseer Psychic Powers - Any Iyanden Spiritseer that generates his psychic powers from the Runes of Battle discipline treats Voice of Twilight (see below) as their Primaris Power, rather than Conceal/Reveal
*Warlord Traits - An Iyanden Warlord may roll on the Warlord Traits table presented here, instead of those in the Warhammer 40,000 rulebook or Codex: Eldar.
*1 A Hero For Ages Past and Future - This is a soul of peerless lineage, its every deed a redoubled echo of forebears long dead.
Rolle a D3; the Warlord can make this many re-rolls over the course of the game. These re-rolls can be used for To Hit rolls, To Wound rolls, Armour Penetration rolls and saving throws.
