they have that striking resemblance to the ruin scenic bases for harlequin blisters ... and that eldrad ... so my bet is harlie wave 2 or eldar

They look more like fantasy elf runes than 40k Eldar to me; Eldar runes are heavy on straight lines and triangles.

I stand corrected. Clearly Harlequins have their own font.

YES! [although I'm really hoping for proper Eldar Corsairs but exotic specie elves on dragons would be absolutely fine..]

I would LOVE another Harlequin option. A named character would be cool, or a new unit entry.

I haven't bought a 40k model since Aos started but an Eldar Exodite army has been my dream since the Mike McVey diorama from years ago.

They look more elf than eldar to me, but I suppose that's a fine distinction. Eldar stuff tends to have more triangles.

EDIT: Okay, now that I've seen the latest messages, it does look very much like the harlequin runes.

Then again, if it is meant to be "civilian" writing from a ruin instead of runes indicating war-related things, that might explain the difference.


The potential is there, due to the split between all the Aeldari factions early on. There will always be the potential that they split off slightly "language" wise when they fled the Empire before it fell, or that they use a "purer" version of the language.

The ruins they're perched on aren't supposed to be Exodites, it's supposed to be stuff on Crone Worlds.
So far we've only seen these runes on their ruins, not on the Harlequins themselves.

We're running low on old factions to bring back to 40k

Exodites, Arbites, Inquisition, Rogue Traders...

Maybe Ork clans or feral orks.

And that's all I've got.

Similar runes are on the Craftworld Eldar vehicle transfer sheet I think:

Corsairs. Chaos Genestealer Cults. Zoats? Sensei/Grey Sensei? Cult of Malal?

(Not serious on any of those, but I wouldn't be shocked if we got some Corsairs for Blackstone Fortress at some point...)

Chaos Eldar comfirmed.

Seriously tho, if it's Crone Worlds, that's just Eldar houses from a couple of generations ago. So it could be anything Eldar.

The one line left that needs filling out is Craftworld Eldar. We need plastic kits for all the Aspect warriors and Exarchs. 20 year old fine cast figs just aren't cutting it.

It's without question something Eldar, but most likely Harlequin if we're doing all that shattered scenery. Exodites would be a long reach - but GW is fully on the "new micro-armies sell better than new models!" approach...so I wouldn't put it past them.

Time is on GW's side. When they're done with Rogue Trader, Tau will be so old that their slave races are considered classic or old and GW can get to work on those.

my first thought when I saw it was the chaos Nocilith crown. it's got that same feel of a circle with runes stamped on it. the runes are eldar clearly but could it be something along that idea?

the runes also match the runes on the head of the big monster thing that Olynder and the Celestant Prime are fighting over.

I hope this is the update that Eldar players have been waiting and asking for. New Avatar, Phoenix Lords, and Aspect Warriors are sorely needed for Craftworld.

That said, I wouldn't be surprised if it was new Harlequin units, Exodites, or a new incarnation of Marneus Calgar.

A friend told me that a friend of his who does actually have friends in the design studio, let slip that there will be a zoat for BSF. Now, obviously that's a lot of steps between me and someone who actually knows for sure and the same 'source' has given me some incorrect information in the past (but they did tell me about ork killa kans a few months before they were released, so not completely unreliable), so add plenty of salt. However, I have some confidence that this could actually be true. It certainly fits the overall quirky retro stuff they have been doing recently.

I think Blackstone Fortress is a way for GW to effectively add these fun little creatures into the miniature range without making an army out of them. Especially if those armies are long dead lore-wise. A galaxy this big always has outliers, like what we have with UR-025. Zoats were wiped out mostly.

I’m most expecting stuff like a Grox or an Enslaver appearing as part of some enemy expansion, similar to what we had with the ambull
