Need eldar images and other kind of inspiration like good fluff, stories and even fanfic.

They are going to be my first WH40k army and i really like fluff, so i want to get to know them so i can build a nice fluff and maybe even make some "fanfic battle reports"

That said, OP, get your hands on Path of the Warrior and, if you can find it, Farseer. Both are very helpful for explaining the Eldar mindset, and PotW is useful for showing Craftworld society.

I'd also advise you stay away from any Space Marine-centric book that happens to feature Eldar in it as well. It can be tempting to pick them up as fiction regarding the various alien races in 40k tends to be few and far between, but really it isn't worth it. Rarely do these books turn out to be anything more than 300 pages of Space Marines slaughtering whatever's thrown against them.

I'm starting up Eldar too, OP. Do you plan to do any craftworld in specific, or make up your own?

I was originally gonna make up my own craftworld, but then I realized the fluff I was going for--lots of dead Eldar, lots of reliance on wraith-constructs, every day potentially the craftworld's last--was basically Iyanden's fluff in a nutshell, and I like their colorscheme enough to play them, and Prince Yriel ain't bad, so.

Though learning to paint yellow is gonna be a bitch...

Black undercoat, Iyanden Yellow, then highlight up to whatever your chosen shade of yellow is going to be. The foundation paints are really useful in that regard - undercoating white will make the model too bright and garish looking.

Path of the Warrior by Gav Thorpe is quite good, as previously stated.

Eldar in Inquisition War by Ian Watson are pretty badass, despite nearly everything they say being related to gaelic for some reason. The book contains a lot of old Eldar fluff (Guardians toting lasguns and whatnot), and a pretty decent read all around.

And yeah, avoid them space marine wanks because it'll inevitably involve Eldar getting slapped around by them Mary Sues. (I'm looking at you Matt Ward.)

Posting John Blanche artwork because he's created some badass-looking Eldar.

Basecoating white is the easiest way to do it. But it's also the easiest way to get ugly looking models, IMO. The extra time spent working up from black really does make a huge difference.

Yea. She encountered an orb of light in the Webway, which banished her followers then challenged her to outwit it. She did, and it vanished, leaving a crystal heart and a sword behind. Malys, being the crazy bitch she is, used the sort to cut out her own heart and shove the crystal in its place.

On the subject of Eldar, this is the list I want to lead up to.

Farseer on Jetbike.
Prince Yriel.

3x 5xWraithguard plus Spiritseer in Wave Serpents.

3x 10 wraithguard plust spiritseer on foot
2x 10 pathfinders

3x Wraithlords, various setups

With gear and powers and such to add up to 2500. Could this be vaguely competitive, in the 'ard boyz sense of the word? It shouldn't be more than 2500 base, I think, unless I added it up wrong or misremembered points--I don't have my codex on me currently.

I don't think so. The Wraithguard are too slow and too short ranged to ever really do anything. An opponent can just use fast stuff to lock them down in combat, and slowly grind them down over the rest of the game.

Again, not eldar related but an interesting bit of new "mystery" fluff in the vein of Svengar's disappearence and the M.34 Pale Wasting incursion from the Ghoul Stars.

268.M36
The Darkfall: A vast city-sized vessel of unknown origin appears hurtling out of the Warp at great speed in the Andronicus
system, and crashes into Andronicus Prime’s second moon, shattering it. Debris rains down on the planet, blotting out the sun
and laying its verdant forests waste. All life on Andronicus Prime is exterminated in a matter of days.

273.M36
The Darkling Stirs: Something alien stirs amid the frozen,
night-shrouded surface of Andronicus Prime, and the Deathwatch
respond. Kill-teams sweep the shattered ground and targeted
bombardments take place from orbit. In the aftermath, a Watch
Station is established in the turbulent asteroid fields that now
strangle the near-orbital approaches to the planet.

and here's an Eldar-related bit:

918.M41

The Semmel Betrayal. Blood Angels strike force Breath of Hermes comes under attack by Eldar on the ghost world of Semmel. Early dispatches from the battle indicate that the Blood Angels briefly held the upper hand, until an unknown party came to the Eldar's aid. The strike force is wiped out to the last Battle-Brother.

Seeing as those are spirit stones, he's likely just ninja'd his way the the Inquisitor to get them back and put them into the Infinity Circuit, in an excellent example of why screwing around with the Eldar should be a really fucking stupid idea.
But in most cases screwing around with the Eldar just results in a delightfully painful buttfucking for them, courtesy of the Imperials/Orks/Daemons/Tyranids/Etc.

In some cases, literally. There's a story about an Imperial Governor who killed a group of Eldar diplomats and fashioned their Soulstones into jewelery. So the Harlequins paid him a visit, took back the Soulstones, and handed the human over to the Dark Eldar to do with as they wished.

996.M41 Vengeance for Semmel
Dante learns the location of the Eldar who slew so
many of his Battle-Brothers on Semmel and orders
the Sanguinary Guard to enact vengeance. The strike
force catches up with its quarry in the arid badlands
of Zoros. In the resulting aerial battle, Sanguinary
Guardians duel with Eldar Jetbikes and Swooping
Hawk Aspect Warriors, but finally emerge victorious.
Alas, the identity of the Semmel Betrayer cannot be
discovered, so the Blood Angel's ultimate vengeance
remains elusive.

673.M40
The Cauldron of Savagery returns to blight the Drusus Marches, breaking forth from the Great Warp Storms during a period
of unprecedented Ætheric turbulence which disrupts communication and passage within the sub-sector. A loose alliance of
Rogue Trader vessels under the leadership of the infamous privateer Esme Chorda and a threadbare contingent of Battlefleet
Calixis defenders confront the dread wanderer. The space hulk is bombarded and successfully driven into the primary star
of the Pellucidan system before its nightmarish inhabitants can ravage Pellucida’s worlds. The Pellucian sun is said to be
scarred for nearly three decades afterwards, vivid greenish stains burning upon its harsh white surface.

152.M41
The Rogue Trader fleet of Synbar Lockhart is ambushed by the treacherous Eldar in orbit of the dead world of Foulstone.
The first confirmed contact with the ancient and malign xenos within the Koronus Expanse, the assailants are later identified
as belonging to the Eldar faction known as ‘The Crow Spirits.’ A dozen human ships of varying sizes are destroyed in the
ambush, and only the Menes Rhea, Synbar’s own cruiser, escapes intact. The Lockhart fortunes never fully recovered from this
blow, and the Rogue Trader line maintain a bitter hatred of the Eldar to this day.

Well, it was the "soul of a dying star," and it did kill that super-tyrant no problem.

Yeah, but the Eldar happily created suns for their own use pre-fall. It's probably some cultist who was busy wanking while he made the spear, and took a sun that had hit it's useby date (or gave it a faster one) and channelled it into the sun. Then he impaled himself on it just as he orgasmed.

>Millennia ago on the planet Tyrine, Ela'Ashbel confronted the Chaos Space Marine Kor Phaeron, a Dark Apostle of the Word Bearers Legion. This was to be a most fateful encounter, for neither the Eldar Farseer or the ancient Chaos Marine emerged unscathed. Ela'Ashbel lost her physical sight, but gained a great insight into both her own abilities and the Dark Gods who guide the Word Bearers in their unholy crusade. Kor Phaeron, in contrast, was left with a deep and abiding hatred of the Eldar, a thirst for vengeance that still burns brightly within his hearts centuries later.

>518.M37
Punitive expedition led by the Emperor-class battleship Divine Right succeeds in eliminating Rogue Trader Darius Pluto. Pluto, aboard cruiser Route Less Apparent had surrendered his allegiance to conspire with the Fra'al, betraying to them critical details concerning Imperial convoy router, schedules and escorting force strengths. Before his demise, it is documented that he often accompanied small wolfpacks of Fra'al vessels against remote outposts and transport convoys, purposely destroying all escorts before plundering the transports one by one. The damage done by this rank perfidy goes far beyond the actions of one man, many centuries after the destruction of Route Less Apparent, Fra'al raids continue throughout an ever-widening area in Segmentum Obscurus at a pace that shows little abatement.

My guess was 2012, following the five year plan I've convinced myself GW follows for some reason.
That's a minimum, for all I know they could just skip them this edition all together. We've still got Grey Knights (blah), Tau, Necrons, and Black Templar to get through, all of which need it more then they do.
Of course, they could do something similar to when Spearhead came out. I mean, they have the finished prototype sitting in the fridge.

Well, they published the Blood Angels codex, which has, besides FOC changes and special characters, 8 unit entries that are not in the vanilla SM codex.

It lacks 7 choices, and many of the new ones are variants of the SM units (Honour Guard->Sanguinary Guard, Ironclads&Venerable Dreads -> Furiosos&DC Dreads). Based on the release of the Blood Angels codex, despite the fact that their last edition codex was a WD article/pdf unlike the Dark Angels' full book, I'd say DA will get released as a separate codex, and Matt Ward mentioned them alongside BA, BT and Wolves as "aberrations".

>> No.12825110
