Chaos and Eldar rumors keep coming


 The Eldar Lynx from Forgeworld might be a glimpse of things to come for the Eldar

Well, there are new Eldar and Chaos rumors to report.  As always, Warseer is the place

Stickmonkey and Straightsilver are two of the best rumor sources on Warseer.  So they, along with Hastings 69 and Harry and the go to guys and what they post is always relevant.  Of course you still need to take this all with a grain of salt.

First, regarding a new Eldar tank:

From Stickmonkey:

Its a new design. It meshes with existing eldar design. More so once all the other designs are added... 

I'll say it this way, basically Eldar have a a rhino. It can be a predator, a razorback, or a vindicator, but it's still a rhino. Don't you think it would be nice if they had a landraider? Not saying they are getting anything here, mind you, but at some point to expand you need more than one chassis... 

From Straightsilver:

If I understand correctly, from what Stickmonkey has said and from what I have heard there will be a new type of larger Eldar vehicle coming, which will be a larger Grav Tank.

Think what a Land Raider is to a Rhino, so a larger Falcon / Wave Serpent, with more armament, heavier armour and possibly more transport capability.


It won't simply be a larger Falcon / Wave Serpent but will be a new design.


There will also be an Eldar flyer, and from a design point of view will be of a similar aesthetic to the new as yet unseen larger vehicle.


I hope that makes sense?


I know when I spoke to Jes at the launch of the Dark Eldar he explained that as plastic technology has advanced quite rapidly the sculptors are able to work from 2ups instead of 3ups, and this makes large, one piece plastic components easier to create.


One of the first examples of this was the Dark Eldar Razor Wing, which allowed for a compicated curved design to be made in one piece (the top hull).


Jes said it meant that large apocalypse kits would also be much easier, and as the Stompa and Baneblade had sold so well there plans to make another, and he wanted it to be an Eldar super heavy.


That could be the new vehicle Stickmonkey is talking about (so it got scaled down), or could be something brand new. 


OK, now onto Chaos rumors. 

From TheDarkGeneral

I haven't heard anything further on Legion specific rules. Daemons definitely aren't a focus, but daemonic possession is...might even be an HQ upgrade...

With 6th Edition changing the way deepstrike and reserves work, it'll be worth waiting on another Daemons codex.


I doubt Chosen will get access to Terminator Armor, with the return of Cult Terminators, and to keep different from regular Astartes. But I could be wrong on this.


Daemon Prince options are more similar to the Daemon Codex, even jokingly mentioning would it be cool if a daemon prince could carry a gun?
 
......

I believe there are two different types of Terminators.
......

A lil' additional note: another member asked if I could comment on Huron Blackheart and the Red Corsairs...

Well from what I've gathered from everything i'm being told (and again i'm sure some of it is incorrect) there's not a lot of focus or attention on newer Chaos Space Marine chapters. The focus is mostly on the original 9 Traitor Legions and some of their direct splits.


This doesn't mean that some of these Characters like Huron won't appear, I really don't know. It does seem however that GW main is letting Forge World handle more of the 'successor' chapters and Traitor Guard options.


I can see GQ main eventually making another Lost and the Damned style codex, but perhaps not for at least another year. They still have Daemons (both 40K & Fantasy) and Warriors of Chaos scheduled tentatively for sometime next year, might be a lot of extra Chaos going around that could flood the market and not sell as well. I'd like to think they would, but GW main often makes decisions that I say "huh???" to.
 


As always...apply liberally:

9 Traitor Legions?
Did I read that correctly?

I'm hopeing that was a typo...
But with gw anything is possible, the heresy novels have been dropping little hints to the missing primarchs and their chapters ( I believe magnus and logar mentioned that russ and the wolves had been used before on a legion...) it'll be nice to see what chaos brings with its release.
As for eldar, it would be nice to see some more units and vehicles for them

Yes there are 9 Chaos Legions - 4 Cult Legions and the 5 Undivided Legions.

All of the original 20 First Founding Chapters were Legions i.e. numbering in the ten of thousands.

This is taking Chaos back to the "glory days" of 3.5e when you could tailor your army and Alpha legion were different, Iron Warriors were unique and you had proper cult terminators - i really miss my Sonic Blaster armed terminators and mounted daemonettes moving up to 24" on the summon!!!
