    It says you can take a wraithknight as a warlord too, so there's definitely some force org shunting going on...

There are also Iyanden-specific Warlord traits and the option to take a council of Spiritseers, plus three new battle missions and five scenarios to fight with your army. There are even stratagems for Cities of Death and Planetstrike for you to use on an unsuspecting enemy.

    "First in a series of codex supplements"

    YES PLEASE! You Eldar players get out there and buy the hell out of this thing so I can get more things.

    Also, the warlord traits, some new weapon upgrades and some modifications to the codex was shown, doesn't mean a lot to me.

    Flicking through the video on pause seems to say You can make a Wraithlord or Wraithknight your warlord, even if they are not in the HQ slot, and take upto 5 Spirit Seers as a HQ slot instead of one.

    Yes indeed. Iyanden allies with WK HQ will be fun. There is some beautiful art in the teaser video, including a picture of Iyanna Arienal which is gorgeous. Hoping they include rules for her.

    Is this some sort of elaborate joke? You'll have to buy both this and the codex in order to run Iyanden armies? The digital version of this costs the equivalent of 30 GBP. In Sweden you'd be shelling out 68 or 69 GBP just for the rules if you want to run an Iyanden army.

    Re: Iyanden - A Codex: Eldar Supplement

    No you can run Iyanden armies perfectly well with the regular codex with a spiritseer. This just gives extra options, hence the term supplement. 32 pages of background for Iyanden is worth the price for me alone, that's almost as much as we get for the entire Eldar race in the regular codex.

    It also changes the primaris psychic power for Spiritseers from the Runes of Battle list. Getting Voice of Twilight instead.

    Oh, that's fine then. I understand that you're happy, but it's 32 pages they should've stuffed in the codex instead.

    Why? It's already the largest eldar codex since 2nd edition and 30% larger than the previous one. It was never going to be any larger and if it were it would have been more expensive which would have sparked even more nerdrage.

    Not to forget all the other craftworld people moaning about Iyanden getting all the love.

    If this brings about codex black templars, codex white scars, codex flesh tearers, etc etc then I am all for it. Someone let me know asap if there's any special characters in there, that'd be simply too good to be true.

    Exactly, it says explicitly this is the first in a series of supplements which could well mean we will see the other main craftworlds get supplements. There is no way they could cram it all in one book. Don't want to pay the money, fine, you don't have to. But arguing the contents should have been in the main book is absurd.

    And know what? I'll even pay the money for the Limited Edition book, although it offers nothing special except the look and being limited.

    Re: Iyanden - A Codex: Eldar Supplement

    As this is stated as the beginning of a series of supplements, it makes me very excited for what chaos could get! Similarly, I'd be very surprised if Black Templars don't end up getting their codex in this form when space marines get redone.

    Agreed. I'm not an eldar player but I am considering getting this, as it'll be a focussed read on the fluff of a certain craftworld, and I want to encourage these kind of supplements. There's no obligation to run iyanden using this - the eldar codex would be fine.

    Re: Iyanden - A Codex: Eldar Supplement

    Information from the video - it's all on the public domain so legally fair game? Mods, let me know if this is breaking any rules, but I've only typed up what's in the video for all to see.

    ---

    Wargear:

    Celestial Lance - 35pts

    This crystal lance was once borne by Drastanta, Tempest of Starlight and Phoenix Lord of the Shining Spears. Alas, Drastanta was ever over-proud and much given to needless lone battles. Drastanta came late to Asurmen's final stand and found his mentor already fallen before the foul might of the Keeper of Secrets N'kari. Keening with rage and sorrow, Drastanta slew the Daemon, the energies of the lance shattering the creature's vile spirit. Drastanta emerged from the fires of Asure where his mentor had not, but he soon vanished into the tumult of the war-torn galaxy. In the centuries since his final recorded battle, the Celestial Lance has passed from shrine to shrine and craftworld to craftworld, the better to keep alive the tales...

    The Wraithforge Stone - 30pts

    This was once the waystone of the long dead Bonesinger Ivaril Brightshard. It was Ivaril who aided Mehlendri Silversoul in adapting the infinity circuit into a soul reservoir, and Iyanden has never known a more skilled shaper than he. Ivaril's soul has long since departed into the infinity circuit, but legend tells that the echo of it remains in the Wraithforge Stone and allows its bearer to manipulate wraithbone into new forms just as Ivavril once did.

    During each of your Movement phases, nominate a single Wraithlord or Wraithknight within 6" of the bearer and roll a D6. On a roll of a 1 or 2 nothing happens. On a...

    Warlords - When choosing an Iyanden army, you can choose one Wraithlord or Wraithknight to be your Warlord, even though it is not an HQ choice.

    Shadow Council - Iyanden army may take up to 5 Spirit Seers as a single HQ choice, rather than 1.

    Gifts of Asuryan - Any character in your army that may select Remants of Glory, may instead select from Gifts of Asuryan presented opposite, as the points cost shown. A character cannot choose items from both lists. Note the Wraithforge Stone and Guardian Helm of Xallathon do not replace a weapon.

    Spiritseer Psychic Powers - Any Iyanden Spiritseer that generates his psychic powers from the Runes of Battle discipline treats Voice of Twilight (see below) as their Primaris Power, rather than Conceal/Reveal

    Warlord Traits - An Iyanden Warlord may roll on the Warlord Traits table presented here, instead of those in the Warhammer 40,000 rulebook or Codex: Eldar.

    1 A Hero For Ages Past and Future - This is a soul of peerless lineage, its every deed a redoubled echo of forebears long dead.

    Roll a D3; the Warlord can make this many re-rolls over the course of the game. These re-rolls can be used for To Hit rolls, To Wound rolls, Armour Penetration rolls and saving throws.

    Re: Iyanden - A Codex: Eldar Supplement

    Personally before I make any decisions I'd like to make sure that the quality of the background writing is acceptable.

    32 pages sounds sweet, but with Ward I am extremely carefull when it comes to fluff.

    As long as he takes more from old editions - Avatar's furious charge against Tyranids for example - and old White Dwarf articles I'll be happy.
    The main strenght of those supplements is supposed to be the background section, otherwise such books will not be so successful as they should be.
    I'm personally waiting for the Ulthwe supplement, so let's hope the Iyanden book will not fail the expectations.

    They have the rules for a Wraithseer in Imperial Armour 11 (though it would be nice if the Eldar list from IA11 were updated for the new codex - you'd think Wriathseers would be able to have their powers affect Wraithblades and Wraithlords too, not just Wraithguard and Wraithlords). I imagine that GW didn't want to step on Forge World's toes by including the Wraithseer in the Eldar Codex, and the same reasoning would apply to not putting it in Codex: Iyanden (if it were included there and not the main codex, there would probably be even more wailing and gnashing of teeth than there is now).

    This might be part of GW's idea for accelerated codex releases - get some of the main ones out of the way, then put out different chapters/craftworlds/other variant army types. They could drop these codexes at a faster pace. It might also let them cycle in some of the other factions that had been rolled over into main codexes or just dropped - not just things like Codex Black Templar or Craftworld Saim-Hann, but things like an Ork Kult of Speed book, or the different Guard factions, a Harlequin codex, Genestealer cults and so on. I would imagine that it wouldn't require as much playtesting for just a few rules tweaks than it does for a major codex update, so that would help with doing these on an advanced schedule.

    Re: Iyanden - A Codex: Eldar Supplement

    This is awesome. I don't play Iyanden Eldar, but I am going to buy this book just so they make money and keep doing this. This is what they should have been doing from the beginning. Codex for the basic rules, then supplements for Chaos Legions, Space Marine Chapters, Different Divisions of Guard, Different Kabals of Dark Eldar, Etc. The only thing is they should tone it down a little with the extra missions and stuff so it could be cheaper. If it was 30 instead of 50 I think people would buy the crap out of supplements.

    Re: Iyanden - A Codex: Eldar Supplement

    PLEASE Eldar players, buy this up like candy. If there is anything I have hoped to succeed its these kinds of supplements! As a Chaos player, I BEG YOU to make this successful so we can finally get a Legion based supplement.
    Some men, just want to watch the world burn.
