I hope that the eldar's 6th ed codex has some strong internal balance, so that we can see some variance in armies played other than "chosen few".

I can expect alot of point fixing going on for some units.

When do WD leaks usually appear? I can never remember the number, even though it's usually pretty accurate.

8000 points of XI Legion the Space Vagabonds, they can adapt their tactics to represent any and every Legion and Chapter as needed because they were created by the Emperor to be the ultimate tactical power. They have faked their disappearance in order to infiltrate every part of the conflicts in the galaxy.

8000 points of Tau/Craftworld Eldar/Necron because the Space Vagabonds can also emulate their wargear and tactics.

Victories: ALL
Losses: NONE (My armies have the psychic ability to conjure a cataclysmic storm whenever they are about to lose. This allows the Space Vagabonds to teleport away while releasing power waves that destroys the battlefield and so every battle is a victory)

The White Dwarf is released the last Saturday of the month. Leaks usually appear in the week leading up to that Saturday, usually around the Tuesday.

So, we should expect to see what's in the WD in 4-5 days. GW also releases the YouTube video teasers of army updates in the same week. So if we haven't seen any pictures or videos of Eldar in the next week, they're probably not coming in June.

Another shadow of a flyer blurring over generic backgrounds with a relic audio track of sounds of battle playing in the background.

Plus, we usually get these trailers after leaks hit the web, these videos do quite do it for me.

The scariest part is you can actually see they are getting better at this since they started doing these.

Still really happy eldar are next, I keep hitting refresh all the time. The far seer leaked really early!

Sad news, I just spoke to my retailer I typically go to, he said his distributor told him not to expect any of the Eldar in the first 2 weeks of their release. GW is so far behind in production that they have not even received any of their High Elves yet either...I hope some of you will be more fortunate in finding them then I will be, it sounds like GW production is a mess still and they are going to be taking care of their direct sales first and foremost.

Hey, GW is the "Porsche of miniatures!" People don't expect to get a Porsche just because they ordered one, right? Premium luxury goods sometimes take a while to get to you because they have to go through a lengthy craftsmanship process, not to mention the highest possible standards in quality control.

Besides, if you can't find GW products in your store, that just adds value. If you can actually find a High Elf product, that means you're part of the in-crowd who is connected, above the hoi polloi who have to buy their mandollies at the non-GW FLGS. Frankly, to justify the privilege of being able to buy a GW miniature after it's released, I think we need another price increase.

In terms of Aspects, he runs Avengers and Fire Dragons. Multiple units of each, kept save and snug in their Wave Serpents until they are needed. Just because it's not used to what you're seeing, doesn't mean it's not out there. Regardless, I am not going to argue with you. I stand by what I said. Yes, Eldar need an overhaul. Badly. However, they are still competitive. It just requires a bit of creative thinking. You know, it just came to me. You want them to be broken and overpowered like Necrons or Tau. They certainly are not overpowered. And, I hope the new Codex is BALANCED, not stupidly powerful like Necrons. But, that's enough from me. Here's to hoping we hear some new rumors and see some new models very soon. Cheers.


This list wouldn't do well in the high level tournaments that I've seen based on the prevalence of flyers. Tucked in a Waveserpent doesn't matter to a Vendetta or Nightscythe. And once out they are Armor 4+ and compelte fodder.

Now I'm not saying that Eldar are unplayable in the current ruleset...they are still playable and with strong generalship and some luck on your side...you can win against power build lists. But any knowing Eldar player won't expect to win...and know that their Codex is not going to win any major tournaments.

As has been said, Eldar's tournament trick currently is their moderate to severe deathstar. And that rarely wins games against full armies, but does well versus other deathstars.

Sorry I was bummed too. I realized I would probably have to actually pre-order the codex from GW's website, I lose a small part of my soul everytime I buy something direct. I would much rather support my independent retailers but I don't want to wait weeks to see changes.

Why would you give Banshees Rending, other than wanting them to perform vs TEQ? That's obviously not their role anymore, we have Harlequins for that. Banshees are dedicated MEQ killers, and they would do that job perfectly well in their current form if they had a decent way to get there.


You are right in that Harlies do that well, but I hate the fluff of the Harlies. So I hope the Banshees do still retain some TEQ ability(even if it is making the Exarch a monster versus them).

Yeah, other than the tau fiasco, my store never has problems getting GW product, and we deal straight through them.

Banshees SHOULD be able to deal with TEQ since that kind of was their thing. You can't really shrug off the job in a specialist army to a type of unit that doesn't follow the same qualifications. Banshees were the Aspect that were supposed to show up scream and cut through heavy armor with a shower of fast low strength attacks. Harlies are not Aspect Warriors and shouldn't have to counted on for specific tasks. Hell, they might not even be at that Craftworld on the given day. So if not Banshees then hopefully another Aspect besides Fire Dragons will step up.

My gut tells me we won't see any of the same supply issues with Eldar as we did with Tau. Since we've seen a completed sprue, a month ago, even, I take the indication that GW are pretty much done casting, and barring a warpstorm on a freight boat, we shouldn't have to wait for our pointy eared space elderly.

I would sincerely like to believe that, but based on the trend that the last 3 releases (Chaos Daemons, Tau, High Elves) have been plagued with production delays, I would wager good money that this will have issues as well.

That and Hastings said the production issue was boxes, not casts.

It's not really in "financial trouble" it just isn't making the returns the would like on their investments. 40k tau models couldn't even stay in stock to fulfil orders (well that's not exactly true.... it was actually the printed boxes that ran out hence why some people received models in white citadel boxes) that never happens with any WFB release.

At the same time we usually have more information by now. With only a week before the preorders, we have seen far more by now in past releases.

Monday brings us to the countdown for WD leaks. Here's hoping until then. The anticipation is painful.

I really hope that they are actually happening, unless the Farseer was just for a one off type thing. Maybe GW are keeping tighter wraps on things now?

What are the chances of no release in June? That could be a reason of no leaks.
