|The 3rd Edition Craftworld Eldar Codex|
At this stage nothing is confirmed, and it wont be until the week before release, but it looks like this is not a new Eldar codex but instead a revival of the old 3rd ed supplement codex.
Now i see this as a sign of progress and a step in the right direction. All the recent 40k codex have lacked character, aside from the Space Marine Codex. They feel sort of bland and really the only real difference between 2 Tau armies would be the colour scheme. If Codex Craftwolrd does allow Eldar players to play Eldar armies from the main Craftworlds then this will generate diversity in the army, it will inspire players to make heavily themed armies, it will encourage players to make different lists and use different play styles and overall improve the game. My personal hope is that all the armies get one of these books and that one day we will see rules for Blood Axe Orks, Behemoth Tyranids or even the Tanith 1st.
Ultimately we wont know until the book is actually released but what with 7th coming out so soon after 6th and all 40k armies having a 6/7th book GW cant really either release 8th or new books so it could be that this is their new release plan for 40k for the next year and a half. Who knows, but we can still hope. Until next time.
