OK, so I was thinking about starting Eldar a while back (and still want to!) and I saw a really neat box that came with like an Autarch, some Dire Avengers and a few Wave Serpents and Falcons I believe. I cant seem to find it anymore though. Does anyone know where I can find one of these, and what the set is called?

Thanks

This may be similar, but the set you are looking for is also out of print:

Your best bet is to either comb ebay or buy separate. I am usually a fan of the latter as only a handful of the boxes are really a deal, such as the Dark Eldar set, the Green Tide (OOP), and Battle Company (OOP). The other advantage to the former choice is being able to get exactly what you want and not have that one extra unit you never use outside of Apocalypse.

They are a splash release ONLY for the 'new' release of an army.

That was the one for the last codex release.
You might find one here or there around the traps at an independent store, but GW no longer have them in stock.

This may interest you, right here on warseer. It's a couple of weeks old so it may not be availible anymore, but it's definately a good deal.

I ended up picking up three of them a year ago by taking the Independent Retailer listing in the back of an old White Dwarf and calling around. Took me a bit to find them, but I needed 3 of the Autarchs from the box for a customer. The rest of the stuff was used as well to one point or another.

If you really want it - I am sure there are still a few out there gathering dust. For some reason it seems that that box has spent the most time on the shelves.

Thanks. I will have to do some looking then. Do you, or anyone, know the name of the box thought? Like Eldar (insert name) ....

I think its called "Eldar Army". As opposed to a battalion as they already have those.

I just checked, the "Eldar Army" is the set they still sell which isnt similar to what I was looking for. This is like 2 Dire Avengers Squad, Autarch, and Wave Serpents/Falcons. I dont think there were any guardians, bikes, etc...

Yeah, they did do that box set, I've tried hunting on google for it but can't find it. They stopped selling them quite a long time ago I'm affraid. The boxset (I can't remember the name) contained:
1 autach (or it could have been a farseer)
2 squads of dire avengers (I can't remember if the were 5 or 10 man)
2 wave serpents
3 falcon grav tanks

the set was a complete 1500 point army if I remember correctly.

Yup, that is the one. Oh well, guess I will be picking the models up individually, as that is exactly what I want to base my Eldar off of.

Thanks for the help guys!

Was it the Eldar army box that was in one of the old 'Craftworld Eldar' blue boxes?

The ONLY box with an autarch was for the 4th ed codex release.
The Eldar didn't have Autarchs when the Craftworld codex was available.

That particular autarch in that army box was ONLY available in that box. It was never made available from GW separately (although may be found on fleabay at vastly ridiculous prices).

Yah - the Autarch Box had one 10 man DA, 1 box of Fire Dragons, 1 box of Banshees, 1 10 man Guardian, 1 Wraithlord, 1 Vyper and one grav tank (forget it it was Falcon or Wave serpant...thinking Falcon though). Might still have an empty box someplace that has the whole thing in it.

Well, if it wasnt an Autarch (which I think it was...) it was some IC.
