Welcome to Librarium Online!
I've been wondering why there are no Phoenix Lords for the Warp Spider and Shining Spear Aspects.
Is there a story for their absence that I haven't heard of or could they be new up coming characters in the future?
Also has anyone heard about a new Eldar codex? Many people in forums keep talking about when we get a new Codex..., Until we get a new Codex...Etc...but has anyone heard about when a possible release date is for it if they are even working on it currently?
Just some random thoughts I had and was wondering if anyone new anything about them.
HEar so much talk about a new codex since Eldar have recently fallen from fist tier army to second, so everyone starts talking about getting new shiney toys when that happens. Otherwise no rumors have indicted that we will get a new codex for at least another year.Also has anyone heard about a new Eldar codex?

yup. negZero is right on all accounts. Too bad, a Warp Spider Pheonix Lord would be a whole lot of fun! Codex p58 I see 6 Pheonix Lord statues and 7 pillars (looks like an empty one, middle-right).
Would be neat if they later did the missing PL's and added some story as to a late coming, or dishonor or such.
As much as a new codex would be cool, there are other armies that need it much more than Eldar.
At the beginning of turn 1, I spray my opponent's army with the bacon flavored spray. Then I unleash my Boston Terrier Squiggoth who then devours their entire bacon flavored army! There is no defense against her cuteness! All are doomed!
Yeah shining spears and spiders dont have one. Spears even in the fluff are a relatively young aspect warrior branch so it makes sense they may not have one, but spiders will maybe get one soon.
Eldar -APOC- 6500 Points
Chaos Daemons -Fate Crusher- 3500 Points
Grey knights - 1000 Points
The fact that they don`t have one if simply because GW are a bunch of lazy ones....young aspect does not exclude to have a phoenix lord. The phoenix lord is just the sum of conscience of the original exarch founder of the Aspect and all the other exarchs that donned their body and soul so this exarch would be immortal (or eternal warrior). It does not have to be the original discipol of Asurmen. Becoming a phoenix lord is an act of soul suicide.
The fluff is this...
Asurmen founded the warrior path. each exarchs teached by him founded an aspect shrine with his own path. Sometimes exarchs found new paths and some become blocked and forgotten. Each exarch of a shrine is the eldar that become exarch and also all the exarchs that were before and the first one. A phoenix lord is only the original exarch in the donned body of another exarch...call it necromancy at it best...
read all the codexes (all 4 ed codexes, craftworld eldar codex), farseer book and gav thorpe`s path of the warrior

The empty pillar on page 58 could be for Arhra, but as Karandras took over from him, maybe not. It is summised that Arhra joined the Dark Eldar and founded the incubi - as they are getting a new codex he could crop up there shortly...
I think that we do pretty well to have 8 unique HQ character option models which is better than the majority of the other codices. We shouldn't get too greedy, even though I would love a Warpspider PL as they are probably my favourite aspect.
