That's nothing new. It'll be for sale up until the pre-order stuff goes live on Saturday. This is how it is every codex as they pretend that they have us in suspense on what might be coming.

The new rules sound decent, except Runes of Warding. Good thing I was interested in something fluffy by allying Incubi and Striking Scorpions. The Ancient Doom also makes a lot of sense. I just hope my new Eldar never fight Slaaneshi Daemons when we role an 11 on the Battlefield Traits table.

Thanks for the update on the jetbikes, sounds like I can stop worrying about that.
Both fliers are Fast Attack though.. I was hoping that at least one of them would be Heavy Support so I could fill those slots with them.

Wraithknight, why do you tempt me so?

Not really a reason IMHO... but then again what does my opinion matter to them?

We haven't seen an official price rise this year, there doesn't need to be one as GW are releasing models so fast and including the price rise with the releases.
Clever way of raising the prices without getting the ire of the community... well, not to the same degree at least.

Old Runes of Warding where rather broken in how they worked in regards to the current system and probably should have been FAQ'd to this a while ago. Question of the range for this is still up in the air of course.

They should be treated like a turret measuring from the base of any Eldar model

Someone goofed and sent out the pre-order notification a little early...with a sense of humour:

So yeah. Even GW has jokes about this thing now.

So do we order half the model at a time now?

Some more early WD rumours curtosy of the Dark City and someone who got a WD early(all bits presented as is and are direct copies of portions of the original post):

- My favourite Warp Spiders seem to now have turned into Jet Pack infantry (while retaining the warp jump generator in wargear, will see what it does), and have Fleet and Hit & Run as baseline, along with the new special rule Battle Focus and Ancient Doom (which seems to be present in every entry that could be seen). From what Phil says in the back of the issue,

- Battle Focus is supposed to somehow increase specialization of Aspect Warriors. How, we will see.

- Artefacts:
-shard of a blade of Vaul that is +2S and Rending, gives the wielder Fearless and in a challenge wounds on 2+ with Instant Death
- the wing of Faolchu that, if I read it correctly, gives 48" (!!!) run in the shooting phase, but the model cannot do anything else that turn.
- the 120" sniper rifle, which, despite the massive range and AP3, is still Heavy 1, which makes it somewhat silly, as it still wounds on 4+.

So there we go. Some more details to salivate over.

Do we know for sure if any of the models will be limited release? (like the spirit seer model) I thought I saw something regarding this. Also, I really want to get the LE codex, but when should I start maniacally checking the GW site for when the pre-orders appear so I can put mine in ASAP?
