More focus on the Eldar as powerful psychics and mystics

More crazy, one-off relics in the style of the Newcron codex, but more magic/psyker flavored, something along the lines of that old collection of items associated with the different gods and heroes from that one book.

Better aspect warriors. I'd especially love better Swooping Hawks, I have a project in mind for them.

More plasma. It would give them a way to express their technological prowess, harnessing one of the more unsafe powers for the Imperium.

Fire Dragons with Flamers isntead of Fusion Guns.
Dark Reapers with Shuriken Cannons.
Dire Avengers with CCW and Shuriken Pistols.

I think if they did something like the Necron Royal court, where you could attach Warlocks to your units would make the army even more powerful and viable.

Also, I'd like to see the Eldar beating the Necrons in the fluff.

According to BoLS that 'Autarch's select a path' thing that's been bandied around on /tg/ and elsewhere as a possibility might end up in the next codex.

Do you think it makes sense? How would you make sense of it? Do they only master a few aspects of war or is it something about how committed they are to a particular one?

>> No.23694825

But why not just both? For example, you can put a Veteran Sgt. in each squad in DA, which nets better Ld and special gear, along with having whole squads of those Vets.

An Autarch has walked many Warrior paths, and didn't find himself drawn to any one. Instead, he was drawn to the path of command, so he understands how all the parts of an Eldar host work together.


Yes, that too, would be a good idea.

>> No.23694865

Which makes little sense, as Aspects arn't about particular weapons, but the them. And their exarchs (and the reaper lord) can use those weapons.

But the weapon of an aspect warrior help dictate what aspect of Khaine they manifest.

>> No.23694889

Seriously, these aspect warlocks look so cool. I can only hope that the concept spreads to Goodwin/Kelly, somehow.
Also, warlocks need a bump to Ld9, or get their reroll power stock in addition to another power.

>> No.23694905


With Grey Knights, I doubt they'll get a leadership bump, especially considering the hit Daemons took.

I think a reroll power is far more likely.

>> No.23694911


>pic of Shadow Spectre

Those are a step in an interesting direction for Eldar: exploring rare aspects found only on one or two Craftworlds. A cool concept, too: wraithguard in training, cloaked guerilla jetpackers who strike out of nowhere, combine their beams in a supercharged blast, and then vanish afterwards.

Has anyone actually used them? Are they any good?

>> No.23694919

Yeah, but both flamers and fusion guns can represent the utter firey destruction of the Dragon.
Both Shuriken Cannons and Missile Launchers (even the pittiful knockoffs Reapers now get) are weapons to bring doom from afar.

What do you mean?
And I'm just saying, if it is going to be my Sgt. option, it needs to be improving Ld first, not potentially (unless, you know, I have ATSKNF and basically ignore morale anyway).

>> No.23694952


Shadow Spectres are so visually appealing, I can't help but want to run them. But they are sadly overpriced points-wise for what they do. I hope this changes in the future.


I can sort of agree what you're saying regarding flamers, but Shuriken Cannons with a 24 inch range is hardly death from afar.

>> No.23694970

True enough. It's more my actual problem is with Maugan Ra, who doesn't fit in with his aspect, and seems more like he somehow vanished and got replaced by a Death Jester. Given the whole shuriken cannon thing, and the armour looking more like theirs.

>> No.23694977


If that's the case, I can't help but wonder what affect it has on the unit price.

But their Exarchs show that the weapons
mentioned are also a part of their Aspect.

Some minor differences and added variety

>Warlocks don't roll for powers. They're Mastery 0 Psykers after all.
No, no, one of their powers is a reroll failed Ld tests. But you have to pick it. So it's have the 25+ point Sgt buff Ld, or buff damage/durability. Not both.
You got me, so either it's A)artist mistake, B)swiped off of a mook, or C)a very special, extra heretical human.
>but Shuriken Cannons with a 24 inch range is hardly death from afar.

True, but they might not remain such, they might not be limited to that in the hands of the Reapers, or it might just be their weapon of choise when they are not allowed the luxury of distance and when mobility is in demand (fluff)?

Warrior paths aren't just tactical doctrines, they're philosophical schools of thought on war and emotion.

By becoming an aspect warrior you are in a sense adopting a warrior trance that attempts to convey an emotion of the bloody handed khaine.

Perhaps Autarchs can master these different emotional mindsets, but for each battle can only channel one. After all, if they could embody every single aspect of khaine at once they'd have to be... well.. khaine himself.

Of course there will be a Kal'dar Drak-yo mary sue autarch who has mastered them all and makes everthing troops.

On the contrary, Incubi are all about loyalty. That's what's so fucked up. According to Incubi legend, they killed their founder rather than let chaos claim him, that's how Loyal they are.

By 'turned away' he means experienced but not lost.

That's what happens to exarchs, they experience a path and get stuck on it. Autarchs experience them all and continue on, thereby mastering them all jack-of-all-trades style (but never excelling at a particular path in the same way as an Exarch. Which is why they don't get access to all the cool Exarch gear).

Okay guys, got some extra details on the earlier Eldar rumors, specifically artwork and what everything looks like. Still no rules. Looks like the Xentarchs are indeed Exarchs, whether they are special Exarch's or just new remodelling is to be seen. We've also got names nailed down a bit more from translations.

With the recent release of the end of this year's schedule looking like Chaos and Dark Angels getting done, we might see Eldar landing early Q1 2013. This would be very much appreciated. Depending who writes it

Anyway, details below!
Eldar Warpspiders/Everguard
5 per box

Resin Black Warden, looks like female Autarch or an Exodite leader

Resin Webway gate( this has me very excited as it seems to point to Eldar having a Webway portal like the dark kin).
A flyer kit. Apparently crossbow shaped. This had a mix of weapons and what looked to be a distortion cannon in a dorsal mount position. I think there is a good chance of the flyer. It could be Eldar or it could be a Void Raven Bomber as there is an inbound flyer release including the Dark Eldar and Tau.
A Shining Spear Phoenix Lord is possible, but the Description and Name Niaduh leads me to believe that there is a new codex inbound and Niaduh Fireheart The famed Wild Rider Cheiftan of Saim Hann is making a return to the game. He was seen riding what looked like a Vyper bike.

Plastic or resin "Halcones Cazadores", which if my Spanish is correct is "Hunting Hawks" or in English Swooping Hawks. Granted the current models are finecast, but a redesign could be cool. There was also mention of Jetbikes. I know Jes Goodwin did a prototype for a new Eldar Jetbike like 3 or 4 years or more ago. If this was put into production I will be buying tons. Saim Hann army numbers.

There was also some Eldritch Raider models, which says to me that Prince Yriel's boys and girls will be making an appearance with the codex allowing you to run a Pirate list or what has me kind of excited an Exodite List.

The problem with having better guardians is they would then overlap with the Dire Avengers too much, as it stands the reason why Guardians are "bad" is because the Dire Avengers can do what they're supposed to do better with well planned volleys of alternating Bladestorms aided by a farseer or two.

The guardians advantage is in how cheap they are and while that can be incredibly useful to meet your 2 troops requirement at low cost, a units main appeal shouldn't be "they don't get in the way of what you really are trying to do"

I'd say take out Guardians all-together if you are going to have Dire Avengers be a thing, or make Guardians better and take out Dire Avengers, alternatively merge the two together some how

In 2nd, yeah, 3rd? Nah. We had that targeting matrix on BS 3 ships and Wraithlords I guess. Everything else was vanilla as hell.

>no codex in 5th ed they eventually fell out of favor.
They were basically kept alive by video game appearances.

Pfft. They were babby's first army.

Cool fluff, clearly better than the decades of Eldar fluff that got overshadowed and retconned for GW's wallet.

I'll bite...

Got any idea on how warlocks will work?

Any new stats on basic catapults?

>> No.23698140

Same as now.
Hopefully they go back to being 11pts.

>> No.23698143

I'd expect warlocks to change very little, maybe a couple of new powers but atm they function fine.

Catapult wise increasing the range to 18" seems likely, I would like a option to swap them out for Lasblasters (which I prefer over cats on my Corsairs)

>> No.23698169

Personally I want catapults to go back to being stormbolters.

and I really hope shuriken cannons hit 36"

>> No.23698195


This is sorta true, Eldar were still stupid good until the 5th edition codexes started rolling in.

Remember when everyone screamed about 5th edition vanilla marines being overpowered?

Oh how we've crept since then...

>It's sexist and offensive.

Unless you're saying it's sexist against men you've got absolutely no ground to stand on. The Sisters of battle are shown in no worse ligh than any other faction in 40k. I can't even imagine what you could possibly be complaining about.

>> No.23698229

Everguard are a unit that has been mentioned in the fluff before (there's a picture of em in the current Eldar codex; they have very tall helmets, long cloaks and are armed with spears). Based on the context of the picture and the name, it would seem their job is guarding important areas of the Craftworld.

>> No.23698235

>power creep
its funny because late 4th ed dropped the power curve way back down, and then 5th ed jacked it back up again.

>> No.23698257


It's more the necessity of their existence in the first place.

>hurr marens are sausage fest
>how do we create the illusion of gender equality

Personally I only care about the fact that we don't have enough female kits for guards. I couldn't give a fuck about the sisters.

>> No.23698258


I kinda like how utterly casual that murder seems; like this guardsman absolutely got the drop on him in the panel just beforehand and the next just cuts to this happening.

>> No.23698266


So it's just the Eternal Guard in spess?

>> No.23698282

Its these guys.
I just know they will end up being shit.

>> No.23698304


Are you really saying that the background for the sisters and even the entire in-universe reason why they exist isn't probably the most interesting and unique background for any of the factions in 40k?

Can you prove that what you said is the reason for why they exist? Furthermore how is it an illusion of gender equality and not just actual gender equality? How do you determine if it's illusory or not, at least to a degree where you can confidently say it's illusory.

> faction that exists because of a contrived clause derp

And Macduff only slew Macbeth because of a contrived clause in Macbeth's prophecy, and Eowyn slew the Witch-King because of a similarly contrived clause in the Witch-King's prophecy.

Contrived clauses aren't bad, they're a mark of good literature.

>> No.23698327


Holy shit. This is the image that defined my idea of the Eldar... are you sure that's not just an exarch?

If that really is an Eeverguard, I am hype.

Yup, I am really hoping we go back to 3rd ed Eldar, both fluff and stats wise.

Hell even playing with the 3.5ed codices in 6th edition would be better than the 4th ed codex.

>> No.23698392

You know something I'd really like? An Eldar SC known for his or her own somewhat unconventional style of war. They adapt to the battlefield in their own unique way, with the fluff giving the suggestion that they're on their way to becoming a new phoenix lord and founding a temple.

C'tan are gas creatures now? Just a few editions back they were energy leeches. Yesterday someone claimed that they are actually the laws of physics given sentience. And now someone claims that they're gas creatures stuck in metal bodies.

The actual Everguard pic.

Huh, well, there you go. Although, seeing as I can't imagine the couple of Eldar blokes forgetting they they already drew Everguard, I'm not sure how well that would mesh with a duo-kit with Spiders, barring a total redesign, which isn't impossible.
