hi guys like many of you i am wonderering what they will put into the new eldar codex when it comes out. i know this probably wont be for a while but still i am finding myself unsure of what they will do, so if any of you have some idea of what or when i would like to know. also if anyone has some ideas of what you think they should put into the new codex please feel free to voice your idea. i know i for one would like a few things to be changed and improved voice your opinions.
I don't really know how they would do it (lower cost, different FOC choice, other) but I would really like to see the Phoenix Lords be a more viable choice. I rarely, if ever, see them as a part of anyones army list.
i would like to see this too, i beleive pheonix lords should be given rules that affect the whole army much like some of the new SM special characters. lower costs is a given seeing how they have done this to every codex so far. as a personal note i would like to see vipers become a viable choice mabye give them the support battery weapons options so that they can actually have a purpose. this combination of mobility and heavy firepower would be fantastic and truly a great thing. it would make 2 previously relatively weak units into a strong one.
Scorpion battle tank. IG and BA got superheavies, and Nids got a Gargantuan creature. It's our turn.
Eldar W/D/L: 17/15/12
Ordo Malleus W/D/L: 24/3/4
Crimson Fists: In Progress
I'd like to see Falcons become dedicated transports.
I don't believe falcons will become a dedicated transport, as they have always been the eldar equivalent of a gunship.
What I'd like to see:
- Cheaper HW for guardians
- New Psy-powers (from the best of the best, we have gone down the ladder quite a lot of steps)
- Possibility of fielding aspects as troop choices through PLords or as retinue for said characters
- Craftworlds! (hard)
- Cheaper WGuards (they do wonders, but at 35 a piece, they are a bit overpriced)
- Useable Hawks (and not suicide tank-killers)
- New aspect powers
- Useable special characters (PLs are a tad too pricey for what they do)
- A do-over for our fleet rule: it was cool when nobody else has it, but now on quite a lot of units is just plain useless (defender guardians, hawks and fire dragons)
- Just love that maki! -
would ike to see aspect warriors become troops choices, if fielded with the phoenix lord of their aspect.
The Phoenix Lord special rules making their aspect a troop choice would be awesome and create some more variety in the army. Psychic powers should be changed a little to freshen things up but the power level is at a pretty good level I think. The fact that other races shoot bolts of energy while the Eldar subtly manipulate the strands of fate makes a lot of sense and is really awesome from a fluff perspective.
I think foot-slogging eldar will get a boost with some added cover save powers like the BA psychic power. They will most likely nerf the War Walkers by making them expensive and making Vipers worth a damn again.
In general, and probably because I play mechdar, I don't see much wrong with the way things are now.
cheaper aspect warriors and wraithguard, and also something that makes the wraithlord immune to things like poison weapons, the fact that a S3 gaunt can hurt a T8 wraithbone monstrisity is very strange in my eyes and has made them much less of a viable choice. i would also like to see the P-lords get a major boost.
There are three kinds of people in this world, those who can count and those who cannot.
