I have compiled a bunch of information that is going on right now, or has been going on over the last day. This is all from Iuchiban on Warseer, and already he has played his first game against Necrons. I included his notes and impressions on the game and how the Eldar now feel on the Tabletop.
I am not sure why many sites are not suddenly not including where the information is coming from (site and source), but its not a good trend. Iuchiban has been posting on Warseer, and while its not always apparent where duplicated information comes from, some places seem to be doing this on purpose and this gets copied and pasted quickly so much that the source and site can be lost.
Here is a great compilation of Iuchiban's information, and I have tried to put it all into the the appropriate categories for easier reading.
Please remember that these are all rumors at this point... as we have not had an official release. There is always room for error or overlooked material.

First Game Report
Just finished my first game vs Necrons. I took a normal CAD + wraith host detachment. Opponent run a Decurion detachment.
Here are my first impressions:
- Wraithknight is absurdly good. I run the Sun cannon + Shield one. Fire the Sun Cannon at some Inmortals, fire the scatter laser were I want to assault. 3+/5++/FnP in a R8 W6 model? Really this guy is unstoppable.
- Fire Dragons are redundant. D-scythes destroy vehicles much better. 5 auto hits that on a 3+ cause one penetrating hit with D3 hull points. No cover. And if there is a unit of Necrons Warriors inside the barge ..... This unit is simply OBSCENE. If they are in the detachment they have Battle Trance ... run + shoot the D-scythe. No more to say
- Warpspiders are much better now. They destroy one C'tan Shard in a single volley. They wound on 2+ to almost everything in the game. They are Little bit worse vs vehicles now ....
- Farseers are really good now. Rerolling one psychic test per turn is very powerful when you need to harness 4 Warp Charges for that Apocaliptic blast power.
- Guardians as usual. Cheap troops
