Maybe they just don't care overly about eldar hence gave them a backseat or couldn't remember specific units over a year out.


Conveniently caring enough to give a good amounf of details about everything else?


Not everything else, world eaters, squats and Daemons got glanced over as well.

Tbh it was a rant almost following the shocking codex roadmap, I doubt they felt like spending hours divulging all of the details of every model, more of a heated "here's stuff".


World Eaters would imply a Codex, new Berzerkers, and with any luck, the treatment DG and TS got, so no need to specify.

What else could you expect about daemons?

Squats going to IG.

You can infer all of that easily, so the thing was a detailed CSM list versus "Eldar gets stuff".


Eldar models getting redesigned, but not all of them, what need is there to specify? You need to stop taking this so personally. If you want to be sceptical that's fine but it's not worth being bitter at the lack of eldar details.

This isn't personal. I just pointed out that the same leaked detailed with care one of the major factions, one chapter, and then just said "new stuff" for another big faction. Previously, someone said "new redesign for Eldar", and it was just Plastic Banshees.

It didn’t just say ‘new stuff’ though. It said ‘a massive but incomplete update of Eldar’. It isn’t specific, but there’s more context than just ‘new stuff’ and reading it as if it’s going to be just a codex or a small update just because it’s not as specific as stuff that’s probably a lot closer is just wilfully misreading what ‘massive but incomplete’ means.

That's fair, they've said some but not all thus time round which admittedly could be anything between 1 kit and all but 1, time will tell if it tracks still

This ^^^^

Technically if they redid everything apart from wraith units, bikes and recent hq's that would fulfill the massive but not complete statement and leave most happy.

FWIW the Warhammer official account on Instagram posted artwork of the Chaos Chainsaw guy for BB (Max Spleenripper?) about 3 hours ago who wears a noticeable Khorne symbol.

He was seen back in June on Warhammer Community in the What’s the Easiest Way To Become a Blood Bowl Star Player? Grab a Whopping Chainsaw article. Could be that he's finally available as I don't see him on the Forge World website.

Oh, I know. I think it's maybe not much of a coincidence that an image of him gets posted hours before a seminar in which a new BB team might get announced, given Khorne is rumoured to be getting a team. Even less taking into account how the T'au and sisters Kill Teams appeared in Instagram before getting officially announced on WarCom.

Whether they rip spleens, burst lungs, or crush appendixes, share your Blood Bowl Star Players with us.


That's what was posted on Twitter. I'm assuming the same was on Instagram.

Either way, we know Blood Bowl is one of the notes for them to hit this weekend.

Sorry, I've been so starved for BB news that maybe I jumped to conclusions. We'll know for sure in a few hours!

(And still, I'd rather get one of the teams of legend announced rather than a completely new team).

It's a 1 and a half hour presentation and if I recall correctly they post the info after the presentation so it could be 2:30 or 3AM!

There are now hidden videos for Warcry, 40K, Necromunda and Bloodbowl on Youtube so they have something ilned up.

You are correct that it is a 90 minute presentation, but I thought that they started posting bits of it at about 30 minutes after the presentation starts.

I would hope that they have someone at GenCon telling them when to post the news.

Yet, what is a "massive update"? New models? Or they are making Craftworlds and Ynnari the same thing?
