Over at the Warhammer-community site, they have shown two of the new Eldar sub-factions: Aliatoc, Saim-Hann, Biel Tan, Ulthwe and Iyanden! What do you all think about them?
And now, Alaitoc! These are looking really good! Oh, and the sweet, sweet irony of the Eldar players saying Astra militarum were too good because of Gringing Advance….oh yes, it is too sweet! But, enjoy those much improved hover tanks! They are nasty.
Saim-Hann has been revealed and they certainly look to emulate their backstory with high speed and aggressive tactics!
If you missed using your Jet Bikes, well, it looks like they’re back baby! The Fire and Fade stratagem will also be quite popular as it allows you to fire on a target and then move behind cover, out of range of a charge, etc.
Biel-Tan is up, next! They look great, and as a die-hard Avatar fan that stratagem looks amazing to me.
And, as a massive fan of Dire Avengers, I am also drawn to that Swordwind ability to natively re-roll 1’s to hit with Shuriken weapons….
The first up on showcase was Iyanden, which I was stoked about as I have been playing a Wraith army myself, lately.
The army features lots of cool ways to field and buff your Wraith units. From their “Chapter Tactics” down through their Stratagem, it is all about buffing the Wraith constructs. I dig that as it gives the army a very defined play style and unique buffs that reflect the background.
Next up is Ulthwe! Ulthwe also seems to have a very defined set of buffs centered around their famed Black Guardians.
What do you think of the Eldar suite of abilities so far with what little clues that we have?
