40K Review: Codex Eldar

This is part of the my Codex Review-Game Design Series.  Lets see now well Phil Kelly did the the Eldar’s internal and overall external meta game balance. Overall Design: 3.5/5 As much as I like Phil Kelly, I think the Eldar codex took a bit of a hit in terms of overall design.  There are […]
