Eldar pictures & Rules (updated)

So I’m sitting here with the White Dwarf in front of me so let’s see what rules we can pick out that have and have not already been done by the wider Internet mob. Also, there are pictures below of everything pretty you need to know.

And for the moment you can stare at the pretty pictures whilst I read through and put together all the information for you. Patience is a virture but you can complain if you like :)! I’ll update in comments.

    Appears some of the image links are broken, I'm super excited for the summary. Read faster Kirby!

  2. Dan says:

    What's the 4chan.org thing

  3. Kirby says:

    First off, the Windrider Jetbikes are the exact same, just re-packaged into a bigger product.
    Dire Avengers are the same be down-packaged.

  4. Kirby says:

    Both flyers are Fast Attack – Hemlock Wraithfighter with two Heavy D-scythes and mindshock (advertised to work together and make units flee and kill infantry dead) and Crimson Hunter (which was upgraded to an Exarch – described as Fighter Ace upgrade) which has two Bright Lances and a Pulse Laser.

  5. Kirby says:

    Wraithknight – can take two arm weapons and two shoulder mounts (normal heavy weapons). Scatter Lasers or Wraithknight has Laser Lock – twin-linked weapons after initial weapon hit. Suncannons are the advertised S6 AP2 heavy 3 blasts.

    Wraithknight is apparently "incredibly fast."

  6. Kirby says:

    Psychic powers are rolled for. Fortune Doom and Guide still exist. There are two forms to each power.

  7. Kirby says:

    Units are still "role specific." Boo 🙁

  8. Kirby says:

    Battle Driven – run shoot run.

    Quicken is a psychic power which "helps assault units get into assault faster."

    Avatar still has Fearless bubble and Fleet.

  9. Kirby says:

    The Wave Serpent has something called a Serpent Field – an offensive weapon.

  10. Albi says:

    Any chance you could check the codex new release page and tell us who the author is?:)

  11. Jon Bunn says:

    Pricing as reported?

  12. Again says:

    OK, OK, one more try…

    Does it say specifically what Battle Driven does?
    Also, does it indicate whether Fortune and Doom are among the randomly generated powers, or are they primaris or options in some way?

  13. borneojum says:

    how is the serpent?

  14. nagash42 says:

    Oh oh is the wraithknight a monsterous creature or walker? everyone seemed to be getting confused.

  15. TommyH says:

    Wow, so basically if you play Taudar/Eldau, you can just JSJ your whole army? Sounds awesome!

  16. Zion says:

    Any talk about changes to the Shuriken weapons? Or more specifically the Shuriken Rifle?

  17. Sentaph says:

    Well, 6 S6 AP2 straight shots, and 6 S6 AP2 small blasts.

  18. Ricardo says:

    Did they play any other aspect and if so; did it change? Weapon profile or special rules would rock too

  19. casperionx says:

    Any word on whether Far Seer's still have runes of warding??

  20. Sentaph says:

    Do we have any idea what these D-Scythes do? Sounds rather interesting, seem to show up on a couple platforms, but I'm not sure how they will change D-weaponry while still keeping with the same theme.

  21. Kirby says:

    Wraithlords and Wraithknights are Heavy Support.

  22. Kirby says:

    AUD prices:
    $83 codex
    $125 Wraithknight
    $185 battleforce
    $76 flyer
    $55 wraithguard
    $50 jetbikes
    $55 dire avengers
    $22 farseer
    $28 spiritseer
    $28 ranger SC
    $10 psychic cards

  23. Anon says:

    All looks very interesting. A first I was annoyed that there were no plastic aspect warriors, but I now see that they seem to be focussing on the wraithbone stuff, which I a tally quite like. Hopefully the army will be at a suitable power level and I won't have to buy any aspect warriors to make the army work.

  24. Kirby says:

    They recently re-released all Aspect Warriors and made them finecast so getting new ones was a stretch despite needing new Warp Spiders and Shining Spears.

  25. nagash42 says:

    So what was the armylist in the battle report?

  26. Kirby says:

    Guide is friendly unit now – 24" range.

  27. Kirby says:

    Conceal/reveal – psyker gains shrouded; enemy unit within 18" loses stealth + shrouded.

  28. FarseerF1 says:

    Executioner- Focussed Witchfire that hits a model 3 times at the farseer's S with Fleshbane AP-. If the model dies it goes on to the next one with 2 hits, if it dies then another with 1. If the Farseer gets to pick the 1st model hit he can also pick the 2nd and 3rd.

  29. Taejix says:

    Any word on whether Jetbikes/Wraithguard can still be troops?

  30. Henry says:

    Do any of the flyers have any transport capacity?

  31. Kirby says:

    Warp Spiders have battle focus, hit & run, fleet and the ancient thing.

    Dark Reapers have ancient thing, slow and purposeful, missiles, reaper rangefinder

  32. fran says:

    what are crimson hunters and what do they do? also, ghostglavie is cc or ranged?

  33. fran says:

    aspect warrior fighter? well, if there is an exarch, we can hope for entire squad! =) (i'm looking at you, vendettas)
    also, any new rules on shurikens?

  34. Eldur says:

    warlocks able to always pick a Shrouded power is nice… huge improvement from Conceal, but now you can't combo with invisibility.

    Can Warlocks roll the Runes of Fate powers?? that could make Fortune easier to get for my council…
    There are no Exarch powers anymore?????

  35. Guest says:

    Any confirmation that the sniper rifle with 120" range is NOT the named character's rifle "voidbringer"?

    Any news on the stats of the wraithcannon?

  36. Eldur says:

    Yeah, I just read the same thing now. I guess I'll go for the dual seer (and maybe Avatar) list as always. Ulthwe FTW!!

  37. clever handle says:

    new pathfinder character is a cool model with a great pose. Wraithseer not so much, reminds me of first release dark elder sculpts

  38. Mike says:

    Any mention of Phoenix Lords?

  39. Eldur says:

    Kirby, are you able to read the Items list, or is it too small to distinguish?

  40. Aircool says:

    I like the aircraft, they look like and Eldar version of an Su-30MKI. Jetbikes are still pants but new wraithguard look cool. The big wraith thing is kinda average.

    Enough to dig out my old eldar stuff? No. However, I'll get the book and some of the new wraithguard as they'll make a nice little allied det.

  41. artemi7 says:

    Is there any point to the Wraithlord now? Or did the Wraithknight eat it's lunch like I'm fearing?

  42. SomeCallMeTim says:

    That seems like a very optimistic price guess.
    I expects AV11 180 points (probably more), especially with Exarch upgrade.
    There is also Nightscythes to consider, and they are quite adept AA as well.

  43. GTKA666 says:

    There is always use for the lord. The Knight is probably going to be one of those things where it can go that way or this way, while the Lord goes the other way.

  44. clever handle says:

    >> What isn't worse than a Vendetta, except perhaps the Heldrake?

    stop with this. price x transport capacity x damage output potential* x reserve manipulation means that the vendetta is heads & tails "worse" than the vendetta.

    * "oh no! I lost 5 space marines!" at 16 points a pop is 80 points vs "oh no! I lost a leman russ!" at 150 points a pop….

  45. Wupin says:

    Watch out, GW closed down Faeit 212 for posting High Elf pics from White Dwarf!!

  46. Tarrasq says:

    That renewer power is going to be a bitch depending on the amount of wsrlocks we can take in this dex. Oh you fired your whole army at my wraithknight leaving one wound left? No worries I’ll just heal him right back up and we’ll see if you can do it again…
