PostSubject: New Codex   Fri Sep 22 2017, 20:50

I don't post very often , but I thought I should post whet I heard the other day. Take this with a large grain of salt, but I was in my LGS and I mentioned to the manager that I had a long wait for a new Dark Eldar codex. He told me in a matter-of-fact way that I don't have a long wait and that GW is combining all the Aeldarii into one codex and it is coming out very soon.
He said it is going to be one large faction and you will be able to pick and choose whatever units you like from all the Aeldarii.
I was very concerned and said that I only want to play "Dark Eldar".
He said you could still do that if you want, but that you will have more choices now.
I personally hope this doesn't happen, but make of it what you will.

It appears to me to be idle LGS talk. They have already said codex Craft World was due up before Thanksgiving and that DE would be getting rules in Chapter Approved before the end of the year.

Still there is question about Ynnari. Surely 3 models wont get their own book.
Aeldari codex is a possibility, because it solves Ynnari question.

As I hear it, Craftworlds is before Christmas.
They are NOT going to be one Codex, mainly because thats too many units to get into one Codex. Plus where would Covens go, as they can't be Ynnari?

As I said, I understand Craftworlds before Christmas, Drukhari and harlequins in the new year, with ynnari and Harlequins joining into one book.

And that idea has been tossed around before and for the most part debunked ... My local GW representative (yes he is actually a store owner from gw ... British and everything) mentioned that GW would more then likely release a stand alone Harlequins codex ... And that they really didn't plan on lumping all of the eldar together in one book ... Once again however a grain .. or block of salt is required

At NOVA, GW announced that Nids, Astra Militarum and Craftworld Eldar would be released by the end of November.  So if they hold true to their original goal of 10 codexes out by the end of 2017, that would leave 2 more to come out in December.  Maybe 1 of those is DE?

It's possible but I don't think it'll be anything other than another Space Marine / Chaos Space Marine cause what would make better Christmas presents for all of the 40k community than more power armor?! Something slightly thematic ... Space Wolves possibly ... Cause woo snow covered Viking marines for Christmas!

CWE, AM and Tyranids have been confirmed, but GW also said that they were aiming for two codexes a month...so there's still plenty of room for some surprise releases Smile
And honestly I think CWE need to come out with either Dark Eldar, Harlies or Necrons next them...but this is just my fluffy head wanting continuity of story throughout the codexes.

I would expect that the Ynarri codex will be released after Craftworlds, Drukhari, and Harlequins - and they'll just cut/paste all appropriate units from the latter 3 into the Ynarri codex, just like most of the units in the Death Guard codex are cut/paste from the Chaos Marines codex.

At the same time, Ynnari are the one currently existing Xenos faction that I think have a strong chance of getting new units to try and turn them into a fully fledged faction rather than 3 characters and alternative rules.

As to the OP, long since debunked. I think it was at Nova that GW said you wont find Ynnari, Drukhari or Harlequins in the Craftworld codex.

Store owners don't have any access to development, or even release, informations.

When i asked mine, for example, when the Indexes would be released, he said "Check the GW facebook page. That's where we take our info".

The communication inside of this company has to be taken a bit more seriously.

That's the spirit.

And since most of us think there has to be some revisions to the dark eldar let's hope that we are not to early so some of our snippets of wisdom might still be used in the codex and it is not released this year since then it is/should already be (practicially) finalized to be send of to the printers.

If I get my wish then Ynari get wiped out in some new fluff...I just don't think Ynari has been well thought out enough yet.

Then we can just look forward to 3 stand alone codex releases for Craftworld, DE and Harlequins...which was never really in doubt.

I am sure Ynari will get a tiny codex release...but if they went to live with the squats for the next 30 years I'd be down with that.

I see Ynnari like the Genestealer Cults, a different flavour of an army, but can be ignored in the grand scheme of things if necessary, although I believe, if we are following the rumours of AoS then Ynnari will be used to remove Slaanesh from the game because you know, mums don't like their kids coming home with boob warriors instead of Spehs Mehreens. Who knows, when the dust settles, Ynnari becomes the new Chaos God of Death, the Nagash of the 40K universe and Chaos Eldar are reborn from the ancient fluff.

I always felt like the Eldar Craftworld vs. Dark Eldar background and way of life is a nice yin-yang scenario and Ynari ruin it for me.

It warms my heart to see so much hate for a faction that was so ill conceived. Maybe that should be our letter to GW.

Ynari just stole our 5th ed power from pain. When I was reading their fluff I had to do a double take, eldar who get power from death... wait a minute...?!?

Not a asuryani. Not a drukhari. All he knows is what he's not.
Poor Balt- err... Ynnari faction.
