In case you can't read it, that first one says:
"Yvaene's tale begins in Commoragh, where she is seen fighting in the Crucibael against lilith Hesperax. It is here that she is reborn as Ynnead's emissary. Her rebirth causes a massive dysjunction that shatters Khaine's Gate."

ALso, a hero of Iyanden dies, and is reborn thanks to Ynnead.



Man, the blade on the left looks kinda Huskbladey.
Still, three of five blades. I wonder where the other two might be......?


These look to be from White Dwarf, where there are also rules for a new Eldar Runes terrain set (+d3 Warp Charge if you have a Psyker within 3").

A great hero of Iyanden dies. That has to be Yriel

Well, ah, all of this information seems largely inconsequential compared to the sundering of Khaine's Gate. I can see the adverts now:

"Daemons? In my extra-dimensional city? It's more common than you think."

If you notice the blades, there is a pararellism between their styles and Eldar Subfactions.

Yvrainne's is notably Dark Eldar (Huskblade). She probably obtained it in Commorragh.
The Visarch's is really Craftworldly, what makes sense given that he was some sort of legendary aspect warrior in the past
The curve shape of the one the Avatar of Ynnead carries is very reminiscent of the ones Harlequins have. Taking into consideration that its technological and not a part of him, its not too far fetched to think Harlequins gave it to him.

I bet that being the same number of Eldar subfactions than legendary blades is not a coincidence and the other two are in possesion of Exodites and Corsairs.

Also, im really concerned about Khaine's gate. I happen to like Commorragh, please GW dont destroy it.

Ooh goody goody goody we might get Corsair and Exodite models! Long-shot, but would be a neat little thing to do Smile

I wouldn't worry overly much about Commorragh. It's bad, but it's far from over.

I think they're doing a bit of a 'hit them at home' style thing for factions that have traditionally felt very safe in their little fortresses.

Cadia attacked and destroyed. Biel-Tan fractured. Commorragh assaulted by daemons. All three have been places that have never had a credible threat brought against them.

If anything, the general trend for DE to be ignored might mean that they simply forget to mention Commorragh getting destroyed, even if they planned on it!

If past experience is anything to go by it will be a footnote somewhere in a White Dwarf article "Commorragh was swallowed up by daemons. The survivors fled to the Craftworlds and repented all their sins"

I am positively exited about Khaine's gate shattering.
I don't think GW is gonna destroy Commorragh, but use he opening to push forward the narrative in fracture of biel-tan and maybe a new codex.
Khaine's gate opening is a central point of conflict in the actual codex, and it's been alluded that behind it is no conventional chaos god.

I was going to say that it looks almost identical to a Ghostsword/glaive but your right as well, both Ghostswords and Harlequin swords have that curved shape with a thick end.

Well I'm both dreading and looking forward to Khaine's Gate shattering. The casual mention is cruel, I need more information GW!

On a different note with Yncarne I am so looking forward to the Revenant discipline Twisted Evil

Khaine's gate shattering will probably take out a sizable chunk of the city, but it seems likely that Vect will just seal all of the portals that lead to the realm where Khaine's Gate is located, which will leave the rest of Commorragh intact, at least for the time being.

They move the clock forward and will establish a conflict inside of Commorragh. Hence: gate shattering

What do you mean with "no conventional chaos god behind the gate"? What else?

I love how GW thinks they can push the narrative forward. All it does is create a never ending series of pocket dimensions where different things happen depending on who saw it. Necrons have 2 back stories, Dark Eldar have already suffered one massive dysjunction, and then there's Rogue Trader lol.

Well, that is entirely my interpretation, but from the descriptions of what happens around the gate I can't pinpoint a god related to the symptoms.

The madrakes are attracted to it and I don't know of any chaos god with a pull on mandrakes.

The insanity induced from the whispers and the nulls screaming make me think of tzeentch perhaps, but no fisical change happens, so I'd rule him out.

So it could be something related to the new god on the block or it could be me overanalyzing some badly written, outdated fluff.

Or surprise Gork and Mork invasion!

City wide catastrophies in the form of dysjunctions happen somewhat frequently in Commorragh. They might not happen regularly, but they are there. Unless Khaine's Gate really turns this up to 11, I feel rather safe, honestly.

Everyday business in the city of natural selec... err knives.

GW needs to pay us reparations in the form of some hella tight DE formations for this train wreck they're about to try to pass off as a coherent story. And I said DE formations not Ynnadi nonsense that dog won't hunt.

Well, now that the Disjunction has happened, maybe Malys will take advantage and overthrow Vect.

I look forward to reading the full thrilling story in a series of three WD footnotes.

Qah. Sole remaining Old One. Just in time for the release of a Hrud mini-dex!

I'm a big fan of these mini-dex releases like Skitarii, Harlequins and GS Cults. Lets them expand into stuff that would normally never get models Smile

Like the gribbly space garbage-bag-men!

This basically confirms that Yriel is the Visarch. Wasn't he already doomed for picking up that spear?

@lament.config true.

I share the opinion that Commorragh will still be very much inhabitable (at least as much as it ever was) and will remain firmly as our place. Take that away from us and we basically would become Corsairs.

If those blurbs in the pictures are in a chronological order (as they appear to be from the words ...tale begins... returns to the craftworld) then it is confirmed Yriel is NOT the Visarch as we already know Yvraine escapes commoragh with the aid of the Visarch (from the twitch live stream), which as presented by that text (rather solidly) is story wise before a "hero of Iyanden" dies. "Yvraine travels to Iyanden" seems to be after The "tale begins..." etc.
