You have to see this! We got a look at the Harlequin Wargear and Psychic Powers today, and it’s GOOD!

The final piece of the Harlequin puzzle has been revealed, and the Enigmas of the Black Library may not be shrouded in mystery much longer, check it out.

The Harlequins get access to SIX new psychic powers with a new discipline called Phantasmancy in their codex.

Several of the powers will be familiar to previous Harlequin and Eldar players alike and some are just brand new all together.

I’m digging the Fog of Dreams, which is a Warp Charge 2 ‘reverse’ Invisibility that works as a malediction. Pretty neat.

There is also a very useful Warp Charge 1 power that grants shrouded and stealth to a unit as well as the traditional Veil of Tears with a 7th Edition twist!

Onto the Wargear, some pretty cool stuff in there too. My picks are probably going to be Webway Walker, because the option to gain that many rules for pretty much no drawback is a huge tactical boon.

Bio-Explosive on the Shrieker Cannon seems situational but fun, and I’m also big on the stave that’s +2 Strength, Fleshbane and concussive. I feel like here’s some big combo opportunities there with that thing.

The Hallucinogen effect on the Grenade launcher *could* net you some big returns but I think it may be too much of a gamble to depend on reliably, but checkout that Crescendo pistol with shots equal to the attack profile of the user. Yeah this book may just be packing heat for real.

Well I’m seeing some sick combos already, just make sure you check the fine print, some items don’t work with certain charters.

    No tanks, not interested.

      MUST SEE or else!

    That double-test psychic power is pretty brutal! The whole discipline is very potent. What level are Shadowseers?

    • ruleslawyer

      Well at least level 2, otherwise half the psychic powers list is useless.

      • Technically not true, an ML 1 psyker in a list will always have at least 2 WC, 1 they generate plus 1 D6, so you can always cast a WC 2 power, your odds just aren’t great if you roll poorly for your psychic pool

    • ctFallen

      they look to be ML1 for base 60pts but can upgrade to ML2 for 25pts, also 2 wounds, tho the leak is in Italian but I’m pretty sure thats what it said.

        Thanks fir that, I’d been wondering.

  • David Dutton

    that Starmist Raiment seems pretty good on a Solitare, might actually make a T3, one model until last a while. Also that Laugh of Sorrows power seems terrifying. Units with Ld 10 beware!

    • Solitaires get a 3++ from their holo suit, so don’t really need it

    • deris87

      The Solitaire already has a 3++, it doesn’t do anything for him.

  • Skimask Mohawk

    Remember when armies had HQ choices?

    • crevab

      I remember stories about a… Forced Organized Card? Something the grey beards muttered about

      • Moik

        Greybeards, are those some sort of Squats?

        Greybeards, are those some sort of Squats?

  • vonevilstein

    Yup the Mask of Secrets is a serious piece of kit. Imagine all the fun things you can combine it with throughout the Eldar codices.

  • Jerin Price

    Is no-one blown away by Mirror of minds? I mean coupled with the -2 ld helm and allied dark eldar for another -2/-3. Or if anyone rolls terrify on the runes of battle. If you put all of that together, Abbadon or freaking Marneus Calgar, even greater demons and the hive mind itself are rolling with LD2 until they beat you or die (ps. At LD2 against even LD8 they will never beat you).

    I mean no I don’t think it’s worth going that hard on leadership shenanigans but as they will be joining my Dark/Eldar anyways, I may do it just once to watch someone’s face when I explain that they should just take him off the table because he’s dead Jim.

    • Spacefrisian

      Throw in that DEldar special formation from a White Dwarf and you be looking at -9 leadership.

    • Djbz

      Ld shenanigans against a high power/toughness non-fearless unit combined with tank shock….

  • JP

    Oh look, more Space Elf Shenanigans. It’s stuff like this that makes me wonder why we bother playing with rules anymore.
