The Eldar Craftworlds are here – come see what else Games Workshop has out this weekend for Pre-Order!
via Games Workshop
Lost in the vastness of space, the craftworlds float in utter isolation like scattered jewels upon a pall of velvet. Distant from the warmth of sun or planet, their domes gaze into the darkness of empty space. Within them live the survivors of a civilisation abandoned long ago amidst terrifying destruction. These are the Aeldari, a race that is all but extinct, the last remnants of a people whose mere dreams once overturned worlds and quenched suns.
Codex: Craftworlds contains a wealth of background and rules – the definitive book for Craftworld Aeldari collectors. Within this 128-page hardback, you’ll find:
– Remnants of the Fall: the origins of the Craftworld Aeldari, their glittering rise and tragic fall, and the ongoing, desperate struggle for survival that consumes them utterly;
– Organisation of Craftworld warhosts, along with the strategic disposition of Aeldari Craftworlds – this includes a breakdown of the colours, symbols and iconography of the worlds that remain, and the structure of their armies;
– Detailed background and heraldry of the following Craftworlds: Biel-Tan, Ulthwé, Iyanden, Saim-Hann and Alaitoc;
– Wanderers of the Stars: brief profiles of more Craftworlds – Altansar, Il-Kaithe, Lugganath, Iybraesil, Yme-Loc and Mymeara;
– The Doom of the Aeldari: a timeline of significant events both before and after the Fall; presented with the proviso that much knowledge has been lost, this concentrates largely on the Age of Survival with important battles and discoveries listed;
– Background and details on each character, vehicle and unit available to an Aeldari army;
– A showcase of beautifully painted Citadel miniatures, with example armies featuring everything from individual images of models to battle scenes on terrain.
Everything you need to get a Craftworld Aeldari army primed for games of Warhammer 40,000 is in here:
– 46 datasheets containing rules for every Craftworld Aeldari unit and miniature;

Though they once ruled the stars, the Aeldari brought about a terrible curse that shattered their empire forever. Crossing the galaxy on their vast world-ships, lead by the most powerful psykers in the universe, they rage hard against the dying of the light. Under the leadership of Farseers, psychics capable of planning thousands of years into the future with patience and confidence unmatched by any race, the Aeldari wish to see their empire burn brightly once more, illuminated by the glory of total war, before fate consigns them to dark oblivion.
This is a great-value box set that gives you an immediate collection of fantastic Aeldari miniatures, which you can assemble and use right away in games of Warhammer 40,000!

Though the chosen of Ynnead are extremely dangerous in their own right, when they marshal their strength as one they have the power to alter the fate of the galaxy. Striding majestically at the front comes Yvraine, high priestess of the Whispering God; by her side is the Visarch; and hovering above like a macabre angel is the Yncarne. Though these three are surrounded by an air of morbid power, they represent the Aeldari race’s greatest hope for a dramatic rebirth.
This box contains the Triumvirate of Ynnead. It includes:
The Yncarne, Avatar of Ynnead, wreathed in a roaring psychic hurricane, invigorating the spirits of the Aeldari around them, the Yncarne comes armed with Vilith-zhar, the Sword of Souls which can take many forms – this miniature includes a sword and a pair of daggers;
Yvraine, Emissary of Ynnead, clad in the style of the ancient Aeldari and accompanied by a psychic familiar known as a gyrinx, she carries the Cronesword Kha-vir, the Sword of Sorrows;

Eldrad Ulthran $25
Eldrad Ulthran was once chief amongst the Farseers of Ulthwé. Eldrad has lived for over ten thousand years, and has successfully guided his people along the twisting paths of fate since the Fall, and throughout the rise of the Imperium. Time and time again, Eldrad has averted disaster for not only his former craftworld, but the entire Aeldari race, committing acts of heroism hidden within severed strands of fate, regularly offering sage wisdom and tactical aid to those who fight against the overwhelming forces of Chaos that beset the galaxy.
This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble Eldrad Ulthran. Standing tall, wielding a beautifully-jeweled witchblade and the Staff of Ulthamar, he wears impressively elaborate armour reflecting his status as high Farseer. Patterns of psycho-receptive wraithbone runes are secreted about the model – Eldrad is said to have devised over a dozen distinct runes. Even his billowing cloak is inscribed with runes, demonstrating his psychic might – as a backup, should his psychic abilities fail, he carries a shuriken pistol also.
This kit comes as 13 components, and is supplied with a Citadel 25mm Round base.
Are you ready for the Eldar Invasion?
