Information is breaking the details of the new Eldar codex. The point cost of a Wraithknight? yea, 295pts. Wave Serpents.... 110 with the shields only being single use only S6 2d6 shots ignore cover.
Much more breaking, lets take a look as it happens.
via Iuchiban on Warseer
All Distortion weapons are Strenght D. All of them. But the scythes apply a -1 when rolling on the D table, and the strenght is considered to be 4 when calculating the instant death
Banshees add +3" when running or assaulting. They igoner the I penalti when assualting through cover.
There are no "chapter tactics".
