sure but doesn't mean any additional releases, it could well be that CWE get a new unit, Dark Eldar some specialist rules, and Ynnari get rules for running without their special chars

That's true but taking your worship away from one god and giving it all to another seems like a bad thing for a priest whose become irretrievably obsessed to do.

I'm fairly sure the Aspect of Khaine they're obsessed with (hunting, obliteration, murder, speed, vengence, etc) cares not for whom the blood flows.

Well, I'm here because I was promised a release that would include not just Eldar but also DE, Harlequins and Ynnari.

Still waiting for anything relating to DE or Harlequins so in the meantime I might as well comment on the Banshee models.


Who promised you DE, Harlequins and Ynarri releases? E - in this, Craftworld focused release?

Not quite. GW actually promised releases for Orks in Orktober.

"Phoenix Rising
The ancient and proud Aeldari race is split into various factions. The stoic and noble Asuryani live their lives adrift on planet-sized Craftworlds. The depraved Drukhari venture forth from the dark metropolis of Commorragh to raid and pillage. The mysterious Harlequins travel the galaxy according to their unfathomable whims via the webway. And the newly formed Ynnari, comprised of members from all walks of Aeldari life, are united in the desire to awaken Ynnead, god of the dead."

Gosh, can't imagine why I thought the release might involve Dark Eldar, Harlequins and/or Ynnari.

Nor me since that fluff piece says nothing about the releases you should expect and is literally a brief background piece.

Again - who promised you DE, Harlequin or Ynarri releases?

Bharring gets it. My point was, Aspects are most likely there representing what they believe to be Khaine's interests in Ynnari's plans rather than actually wholesale swapping their full devotion. It's basically like a priest of Zeus praying for aide for Athens despite the fact that it's a city which has a different patron god in the pantheon.

Didn't say that it doesn't, just that what was quoted didn't promise new plastic. The only thing each army has been promised is new rules...

Khaine doesn't have interests, if anything Path of the Warrior is more about denying him than serving him. Phoenix Lords do.

The aspects are more like Templars and the exarchs are specifically referred to as priests of khaine. They conduct all the rituals around the aspect of khaine they embody. Each exarch is literally one facet of Khaine.

What this is more like, is vestal virgins using their temples, sacred fire and religious rituals to pay fealty to Mars. The aspect is an expression of khaine - it would be like using the star of David to pray to Jesus.

Ha-ha.

But it might be kinda close to truth. Like, CW wear masks to distance themselves from reality of war and not submit to bloodthirst; but Ynnari are fine with this. The aspect armor is full of symbolism after all.

this is reasonable.

So you find Phoenix lords dumb too? Because they were simply an extension of the process of making exarchs - 10,000 years of soul accumulation.

Do you also find farseers (the exarchs of the seer path) stupid for slowly solidifying over the centuries in a similar "doomed to your path but super powerful" way?

Well it will be the same as every other month - some bits and pieces for on faction alongsidde whatever Marine release is being highlighted that month.

There will be a good few new Primaris models I would think.

No. It is in THIS THREAD because the Banshee kit is a part of the 'Psychic Awakening: Phoenix Rising' release.

I love how people are freaking out about Necrons/Tau/Black Templars getting rules with Psychic Awakening. There is hardly any confirmation that these rules will be Psychic powers for them. More likely, they will be getting ANTI-PSYKER rules.
And you know if GW didn't confirm those factions as getting new rules, people would be complaining about that too.
