Answer to that question is easy.

Love for SW is off the scale; therefore the codex gets bummed to high heaven.

Simples.

All of this has happened before.

I want awesome powers of death and doom, I'm Eldar why don't we get death and doom powers?
So you want eldrad to not work for 3 turns if you go second and not be able to use his special powers from the vehicle he is in? Fine. Njal is poor enough unless you are a very good player, paying almost 250pts for a model with no invulnerable save and 2 wounds is not my idea of a great unit.

not saying Njal is better than Eldrad, Eldrad pwns all the same, but I mean like to have moer flavour, those roll a D3+ turn number powers Njal gets are pretty cool, and not too sure about the chaos book not looked at it in a while, but the basic SM 'dex has like close to a dozen powers not sure how many the BA or normal Run priests get. But yeah mainly just more flavour and such than to different powers, like I said sir_m1ke did one a while back that had tons more powers, and more effective, powerful powers, and be the true master psyker race that they are.

this is mainly a wishlisting post here, like I look at the SW run priest powers and the GK liby powers and they are all pretty cool, yeah the Eldar powers are pretty cool too, and I'm not saying I just want copy/paste powers from the space marines. mainly just want more flavour and options behind the master psykers of the galaxy.

I agree with you there. Eldar need more psychic powers, they are supposed to be the ultimate psychic power. But, that is a problem with most races. Nearly all races are lacking in their flavour, but that is GW's fault not the fault of Space Wolf players. And yeah, Njal is a piece of shit from what I've seen.

This is amusing to me.

Does anyone else remember the QQfest over Njal's rumored rules back before the Space Wolf Codex came out (the accurate ones, not the massively exaggerated rumors I mean)? A few especially shitty tournaments were considering banning him before the book even came out. Funny how opinions can change so drastically.

aye Space Wolf players are just fanatical metal vikings but yeah I think Njals that typical awesome idea they have in the office that is then poorly executed in the book and shows it in the game, much like Triarch preatorians and the like.

it's a shame really, I suppose like everything else they strive to make them decent in the game (what's the point of putting them in the book otherwise) but theres just that 'one' thing that puts people off using the unit, whether it be points to stats or what not.

I know it's hard to believe, but some of us like to build unique lists, and the added bonus of not being screamed at by neck beards is just gravy.
