I've been thinking about this aswell, I think when we first saw the release lineup on BOLS they stated that the spirit seer will be "very limited" and I thought that was very interesting.

I'll be refreshing the GW page over and over again starting tomorrow.

Spiritseer will initially be a limited to release followed by direct only from GW.

If it's JUST +2 to Deny the Witch, the range is self and unit. No more will you be stopping your opponent's Blessings. If it is similar to a Psychic Hood, you might be able to protect units within(12" I'd say) range of the Rune bearer.

My guess is it will be table wide and effect all friendly units. Or else it would be too large of a change from the current RoWard.

-divination, telepathy and 2 own psychic disciplines: runes of battle and runes of fate (for rune prophet and runeseer)
- runes of battle have always 2 effects, for example granting shrouded or taking shrouded off the enemy unit.
-runes of fate : 4 warpcharges, 2 powers, very strong and offensive

that is all that is posted on the letter the GW stores had been send too. hope it gives some insigh
I'm betting that we're dealing with some translation issues and "Phantomseer" is the Spiritseer and the "Runeprophet" is the Farseer is this is true.

EDIT: It's a translation from German, so yeah the names are going to be a little wonky.

GW sent out a few of these pre-order notifications early it seems. Here's a full on that was in French (From Faeit):

Quote:
Eldar Official Release Information (Someone Got it Early)



Of course its in French, but check this out. Its very cool, and shows the latest releases.

Here is the Games Workshop newsletter what appears to be a full day early. Apparently if you live in France you are got this today, as it was received by newsletter subscribers earlier this morning there.

I'm just saying Eldar have got the best front cover for a codex out of everyone in my opinion.

Secondly, what the fuck? The Phantom Launcher has 23 inch range and the Wraithknight only has 3 up save? I'm pretty sure he will have a 2 up and the Phantom Launcher will have at least a 24 inch range. I don't think any weapon is 23 inch range.

Also Illic having nine special rules sounds a bit excessive, secondly he was first reported as an upgrade character.

Finally the bomber sounds absolutely disgusting compared to the Dark Angels ones.

Edit: Ordered two packs of Dire Avengers of Amazon for 35 pounds, thought that was pretty decent.
