|I've got a unit of 5 of these guys painted so far...|
|I wonder what the new book will |
hold for this guy?
The current state of my Eldar army is a bit of a sad one. I've got about 800 points so far, but that's all. My main reason for not picking up more along the way is that I'm finding a lot of the Eldar models pretty dated imo, and pretty uninspiring (or just non-fun) to paint.
But, the new codex in the works gives me a lot to look forward to! First and foremost, I'm looking forward to finally being able to play an Alaitoc-specific force again, something I have not been able to do since the old Craftworld book. I've also got my fingers crossed for a few updated models, namely some new jetbikes, or perhaps some new HQ options as far as characters go. I also hope/expect there to be a general buff to psychic powers. That's one thing that has always kind fo bugged me. IMO, Eldrad should be the STANDARD for what a Farseer should be, Eldar are supposed to be master psykers, and outside of Eldrad, they don't truly feel like it.

once the new book drops!
So, on the upside, with a new book looming, maybe only having a 800 points worth of Eldar is not a bad thing. Afterall, should there be an influx of new and updated models, I wont need to replace a ton of models. Second, I also wont have a large chunk of an army become obsolete practically overnight. I'll pretty much be starting a fresh, new Eldar army.
Thankfully, I already have an Eldar tattoo on my forearm to help separate me from the inevitable "flavor of the month" players...
What are your thoughts/hopes/plans for the new Eldar codex?
