Even though we’ve somewhat had the future of what awaits in Warhammer 40,000 spoiled you still need to play out the events of the Fracture of Biel-Tan on the tabletop as Games Workshop release the next Gathering Storm book soon.
“Though they long ago learned how to stave off the vile attention of She Who Thirsts – known as Slaanesh in the tongues of men – the Time of Ending yet tightens its grip on the Eldar. No matter the methods they use to escape the notice of the god who haunts them, the Eldar sacrifice much in the process.
Some Eldar refuse to abandon the glorious dream of building their ancient empire anew – or at least burning brightly before the end. Eldrad Ulthran, High Farseer of Craftworld Ulthwé, puts into place a plan to bring forth Ynnead, the slumbering God of the Dead. A daemonic host assaults Biel-Tan, corrupting its infinity circuit. Unlikely alliances are formed in the face of desperation. And the Gathering Storm darkens over the entire galaxy…”
Things are going to be getting worse for the Eldar before they get better. How very grim-dark and Warhammer 40,000. Inside the new book, you’ll get a number of new rules for the Triumvirate Of Ynnead as well as additional rules for playing out battles around this period of history in the 40k Universe.
Talking of Ynnead we have the three big miniatures for the Eldar for you to check out. Leading the way is the big one, Yncarne, Avatar of Ynnead.
“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”
She is joined by Yvraine, Emissary of Ynnead.
“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;”
…and she, in turn, is protected by The Visarch, Sword of Ynnead.
“The Visarch, Sword of Ynnead, Yvraine’s chosen champion, clad in baroque armour of the ancient Bel-Anshoc style, he channels the lost souls he has accumulated to become an ever-more lethal opponent. He is armed with Asu-var, Sword of Silent Screams.”
I think it was decided that when we saw these models we were totally blown away by them and the Eldar had really got some superb looking miniatures as part of this collection. Let’s hope the story unfolding around them is as exciting.
Will you be picking up this book and the new models associated with it?
