I like Shred, I think that words for the Shuriken weapons. With the low AP no matter what it helps to make sure that it's not too overpowered in general. I find interesting that the Shrieker cannon (wasn't that what Jetbikes ran?) is always poisoned, which means that no matter what it's aiming at, it's going to wound on 4 or better. Monster hunting indeed.

Shred on Shuriken weapons? BAHAHAHAHAHAHA Holy shit that's awesome! Think about it; you now basically have Doom automatically go off on every unit in your opponents army every turn. That, my friends, is hella nasty.

Looks like I'll be stripping back my Eldar to repaint very soon!

Any one hear if the WraithCanon is getting a better Range?
12" I find near useless. Would like to see 18" or 24".

I think 18inchs would be fair meaning they have to get closer then with your average gun but still not close enough that you wont have to get into assault range just to fire your weapon

The Shrieker Cannon is the specialized ShuriCan that Death Jesters have used since RT. According to fluff, they have always been poisoned...in 2ed they used to make models explode which could cause morale test, which is why they have pinning in their current iteration. Fleshbane or Poisoned would be very fluffy for the Shrieker.

As for Shred...it would be a nice way to make the Shuriken weapons slightly better than a bolter without making them overpowered. It would be nice to see a return to the old ranges as well, but that may be asking too much.

It has been very quiet due to recent events. Painfully quiet. I'm hoping someone has received their WD.

If not, I'm hoping the obscure sites, or even the international sites (Spanish webpage for the Tau rumours) will yield some fruit.

I agree that it has been too quiet. Even when my fav army is getting a codex all the rumours stops.
