Behold the video for the next installment of the Gathering Storm saga.
I believe that the events that occur in The Fracture of Biel Tan will happen at the same time as the events of The Fall of Cadia leading to an interesting meeting of Triumvirates in a manner that will see the story progress beyond the events of The Fall of Cadia. GW did a similar thing with The End Times so it would make sense.
Yvraine, Emissary of Ynnead
The Visarch, Sword of Ynnead
The Ynncarne, Avatar of Ynnead
I get the feeling that Yvraine is actually Lady Aurellia Malys the Archon of the Kabal of the Poison Tongue and that she has attained a new roles as well as a new name. However I get he feeling that will be seeing a lot of dead Eldar by the end of the book.

I see Yvraine as Malys, and Visarch as Drazhar. The "Sword of Ynnead" seems to be very Incubi-like, so I can see it turning out that Drazhar was Arha all along, and he is now reborn as the Phoenix Lord of Ynnead.
What I really, REALLY hope is that this is not GW's way of writing Slaanesh out of the setting like they did with Slaanesh in Age of Sigmar. As in, "Ynnead was born and Slaanesh was devoured" kind of thing.
I just hope they don't kill of Biel-Tan completely. It's not been a good year for me - my 3 favourite factions are screwed - Imperial Fists are (again) decimated, Space Wolves are practically shattered, and now Fracture of Biel-Tan does not bode well for my favourite Eldar craftworld.
I sincerely hope this doesn't turn into the 40k "End Times" like they did with Fantasy and AoS, although I know that it is a slim hope. The Eldar factions should stay as separate entities.
As for the models, Yvraine does indeed look Dark Eldar-ish. Visarch on the other hand looks a lot more craftworld based - maybe something to do with the Court of the Young King? Or a new Phoenix Lord? That would be cool.
As for Visarch, those back mounted pieces scream Incubi to me. So we shall see.
From what I hear GW are just moving the time line forward to Total War. Cadia falls, Poo hits the fan. Guilliman wakes up and isn't happy. He says the Codex Astartes isn't working and pulls the legions back together to fight the threat.
Or something like that anyway. The models, look nice. Especially the armoured chap but I've never been fussed with Eldar models.
Breaking Ultramar away doesn't seem like a Guilliman thing to do; he'd need his old Legion back to defend it and even if he tried to get all the successors back together, they have ten thousand years of history on their new homeworlds all over the galaxy. Unless Matt Ward is writing it they won't all simply up and leave because their dad has come back from getting smokes at the store for ten millennia. Not to mention the civil war it would cause and the basic tenet of not dividing your forces at a time like this.
I can see Legions reforming though, just not with only one centralized base any more. The Sons of Sanguinius are already doing that because of how they came together to defend Baal, the Iron Hands seem to be moving that way too, and the Dark Angels are probably already secretly still a Legion just waiting for ol Lion to wakey wakey.
