I guess that completes the release then if it's Tau sized:
Wraithuard (shooty & CC)
Uberwraith (shooty & CC)
Flyer (2 variants in one?)
Jetbikes

Thanks Hastings, a happy little Eldar lover here
Going by previous releases, I'd expect:
Wraithguard Shooty/CC 5 pack for either $50 or $60
Wraithknight on large oval with shooty and CC options for $85
Flier with fighter/bomber option for $65
3 pack Jetbikes/Shining spears for $50
Probably plastic farseer minisprue
2-3 new characters in finecast

I can imagine some aspects moving to plastic but I don't want to start this debate of again. As its been discussed so many times
I can also see new tank options and the flyers are obvious.But its always nice to have comformation from a reliable source.
Daemons have had 4 waves across 4 books for two systems in the past 6ish years. Of course they have a lot of plastic kits, when they get 3-4 plastic kits per wave.

Give me a Mechanicus codex instead .

Is the Eldar for November thing still "accurate" or has it been brought forward with the manic release schedule GW are operating on?
DA could have fit in, but did have a larger variety of special characters, and a much longer history of independent codices. Templars had the Emperor's champion in 3rd ed marines, Codex Armegeddon added the Initiate squad setup, the Crusader, and the vow system. Codex: Black Templars added 3-4 unique pieces of Wargear, Grimaldus, and Helbrecht. Sure, they could be expanded, but are not at the critical mass of uniqueness. But I've addressed that topic elsewhere.

Summer will likely see some wave releases and maybe Apoc II. Then perhaps September for a box game? Oct and Nov would cover Eldar and Lizardmen respectively if High Elves are in May, which would also put the Hobbit and holiday armies in Dec, and the next 40K codex (Space Marines?) in January

Its because 5th ed codices (SM, BA, SW, GK) took so many aspects of the DA dex that they were basically standing around left with nothing but DW and RW. I really hate this misconception that DA are so easy to wedge into the SM codex when in reality it is only that way because DA have suffered from being the lab rat of space marine dexes.
DA also have a much longer history of independent codices. Dropping from 5 mainline Astartes books to 4 (SM, SW, BA, and DA) would also help clear away a little of the superabundance of marine books.
