This is more of a gneral thing so i put it here, as it is about both Codices. THe manager at my local GW store was under the impression that Dark ELdar and Eldar were going to be combined into one codex, NOT one army, just both be in the same codex, i guess it kinda makes sense.
Does anyone know if this is true?
Do people think this is good (Y) or bad (N) ?
The general understanding is that the Eldar Codex is going to be all inclusive,with each Eldar faction's rules and stuff put into thier own little section of the codex. I guess this is a good idea because it saves you from having to buy a seperate codex for each faction.
When you say faction, i assume you mean the craftworld lists, do you mean the Dark Eldar as well? possibly the Harlequins?
Yup.They're supposed to have a section for vanilla eldar,a section each of the major craft worlds (Not so sure how they define "major" craftworld but don't be suprised if one or two of the lesser used ones are missing) and the Dark Eldar will have thier own section as well. Not so sure about 'quins, but according to the rumours there may be a section for 'quins and exodites.Wouldn't bet on those last two though.
If they say major craftworlds they probably mean the ones in codex craft world. Supposed to lesser craftowrlds which i cant remember the name of and ones you make up.
Well those are my pointless ramblings on the subject anyway....
The Exodites and the Harlequins still won't have their own official codex entries sadly. This rumor has been quashed a number of times. It is similarly unlikely that the Dark Eldar and the Eldar will be combined into one very large codex.
They're two different armies. Daemonhunters and Witch Hunters don't share a codex. Just because few people play the Dark Eldar doesn't mean that they're going to be relegated to a section of someone else's codex.
The most likely scenario is that the craftworlds will be absorbed into the major Eldar codex and a trait system will be established for DIY Craftworlds, a la Imperial Guard and Space Marines. The Dark Eldar will have their codex and models re-done at some point...probably after the Tyranids, Eldar, Orks, Special Space Marine Chapters and Space Marines, again.

I thought that they said that the Codex for the Eldar is coming out in January of next year. that was a rumor i heard.

At the absolute possible minium, along with ignoring the boatloads of rumors stating that nids are next, eldar would come out April. 3 months between codexes/army books.

Do you think they'll ever do an Eldar Corsair list/?
'It's Irrational, It's Impossible, It's Against my Religion'
I doubt they'll do an Eldar Corsair list. I'm hoping for a Craftworld version of Doctrines/Traits for Eldar, that would be great. Then you might even be able to build your own Corsairs. I think that they might put the Eldar and Dark Eldar in the same codex, but I doubt Harlequins too. Eldar and Dark Eldar to be in the same codex seems a good idea.No one said anything about relegation or a small section. They may be in the same codexs for convienence. (Probably to make money though, because then Dark/Eldar players would also have to pay extra for another set of rules they don't want.)Just because few people play the Dark Eldar doesn't mean that they're going to be relegated to a section of someone else's codex.
To be honest though, I'm not really hoping for anything (apart from 'traits', I just want to see what they do with the Eldar.
You cannot win, for to fight us is to give us power.
