Pre-Order Iyanden – A Codex: Eldar Supplement

So as well as buying Codex: Eldar for your iPad, you can also now pre-order Iyanden – A Codex: Eldar Supplement.
Iyanden – A Codex: Eldar Supplement

For thousands of years, the Eldar of Iyanden have sailed through the sea of stars, defending the galaxy’s eastern rim from the threat of Chaos. They have won great victories, but have known terrible tragedy also; what was once the most populous of craftworlds is now but a shadow of its former glory.
This supplement to Codex: Eldar allows you to tailor your Eldar collection into an implacable spirit host from Iyanden, greatest of the craftworlds. It tells the epoch-spanning history of Iyanden, from the Fall of the Eldar to the deepening darkness of the present day. You’ll also find a showcase of beautifully painted Eldar miniatures and a guide to the heraldry of the ghost halls. Finally, it includes new missions, both to recreate the craftworld’s famous battles and to reflect the favoured tactics of their warhosts, as well as new rules to use in games of Planetstrike and Cities of Death.

What I quite like about this concept is that it could in theory offer a whole range of Codex supplements for all the Warhammer 40000 races, all the various Ork clans could have their own supplements, likewise there could be a whole range of Space Marine Chapters as supplements to the main Codex.

Digital Codex: Eldar

Following the release of the new Eldar miniatures there are now some very nice digital Eldar books for your iPad.

Codex: Eldar is your comprehensive guide to wielding the deadly warhosts of the Craftworld Eldar upon the battlefields of the 41st Millennium.

In this Army Workshop, the talented Studio army painters demonstrate how to paint a varied selection of Eldar miniatures using the Citadel paint range.

Dueling




This Golden Demon winning Duel was on display in Warhammer World back in 2007.
Space Marine on a bike versus an Eldar Exodite on a lizard
It comprises a Space Marine Chaplin on a bike fighting an Eldar Exodite on a giant lizard.

The Exodites were a concept that had Eldar using giant lizards as mounts and large mounts for weapons (in a similar way to Elephants or Squiggoths). It was never taken further by Citadel, though some Epic concepts were sculptured and cast, but never went on sale. The concept proved popular with some and as a result there is an unofficial codex out on the tubes and some lovely models such as this one.

Eldar Phantom Titan available to pre-order

Forge World have in their most recent newsletter given details on how you can pre-order the Eldar Phantom Titan.

Tall, elegant and devastating in battle, the Phantom Titan is the largest known Eldar Titan. It is swift and agile in comparison to the lumbering behemoths of the Legio Titanicus, and is armed with some of the deadliest examples of Eldar weaponry.
Each Phantom is the pinnacle of Eldar warcraft. Linked to a wraithbone core containing the living spirit of its previous pilots, the single crewman of each Phantom Titan, known as a Steersman, is an Exarch dedicated to this aspect of warfare. Locked in a trance-like state, the Steersman’s consciousness merges with the spirit-sentience of the Titan, enabling the mighty war machine to react and manoeuvre with astonishing speed.
The Phantom Titan, designed by Will Hayes and featuring interior detail sculpted by Simon Egan, is most commonly armed with at least one immense Phantom Pulsar, a long range and rapid-firing energy weapon far superior to anything sanctioned by the Adeptus Mechanicus.
The Phantom’s other primary weapon is often a Phantom D-Cannon. Much larger and more powerful than similar technology used by the Cobra or Warp Hunter, it tears a seething warp-rift in the fabric of reality to engulf and utterly destroy its foe. As well as these primary weapons, the Phantom is armed with shoulder-mounted anti-aircraft and anti-personnel missile launchers as well as an additional heavy weapon, usually a long-barrelled Star Cannon or Pulse Laser.
Adeptus Mechanicus logis-engines also record other primary weapons systems that have been encountered in the long history of conflict between the Imperium and the Eldar. Will Hayes will be turning his talented attention to these for future releases.
Full technical information and background for the Phantom Titan will be provided in Imperial Armour Volume 11: The Doom of Mymeara and you can download experimental rules for this majestic war machine courtesy of the Forge World Book Design team.
The Phantom Titan Body, Pulsar Arm and D-Cannon Arm are available to pre-order now for despatch in the week commencing 26th April.

No I am not going to buy one, don’t do Eldar. But I am impressed with the quality of the model and the work that went into it.

The Phantom Titan is the tallest war machine Forge World has ever designed. First showcased at an early stage of development at Games Day UK 2010, designer Will Hayes has now finished crafting this graceful masterpiece. Packed with lavish external and internal detail, including a stunning cockpit interior sculpted by Simon Egan, the Phantom Titan has taken a full year to complete, such is the degree of detail and workmanship that this most impressive model (we can’t call it a miniature!) boasts.
The Phantom Titan will be on sale for the very first time at the Forge World Open Day. You’ll be able to admire a fully painted example of this majestic model over on our Studio stand, where Will Hayes will also be explaining exactly how such a project is undertaken.
Full technical information and background for the Phantom Titan will be provided in Imperial Armour Volume 11: The Doom of Mymeara along with full rules for fielding what is the single most powerful model currently available in Warhammer 40,000.
At the Forge World Open Day you’ll be able to peruse a work-in-progress copy of this hotly-anticipated book on our Studio stand, as well as direct your questions to Forge World’s Book Design team, who are currently working on it.
Stay tuned to future newsletters for more details of other pre-release kits that will be available at the Open Day alongside the Phantom Titan and our Forge World and Warhammer Forge show only miniatures.

Eldar Hornet


This photograph is from the Forge World displays at GamesDay 2010 which is when we first saw the Hornet.

The Hornet is a light tank employed by Eldar armoured forces in a fast reconnaissance and raiding role. Piloted by a single crewman, it can be found in the forefront of Eldar aspect warrior assault waves, speeding ahead of heavier Falcons and Wave Serpents and often operating alongside other high-speed attack craft such as jetbikes and Vypers.

A couple more photographs of the Hornet.
