Was I the only one who lol'ed where it says

Iyanden, Greatest of the craftworlds
Seems to me that if wardy writes any thing it always includes the sentences X the greatest of the X

I'm a big fan of their fluff but theres no way I would paint yellow eldar.

Have to be honest not a fan of the "chat down the pub" writing style in this preview

I hope that's referring to its past. Because it's not that anymore.

I'm assuming that's the case because from a fluff standpoint it was one of the greatest craftworlds....then a buffet run by Tyranids happened. It adds pathos to their plight because not only do they use Necromancy to survive, but have to do so after falling so far on top of that.

It does look interesting. I don't mind the yellow at all really though not a fan of painting it. Was sort of hoping for some alternative unit stats or something but I guess powers and traits at least makes it unique. Probably wont buy it, wrong Craftworld but otherwise I would consider it. The price on top of the codex though isn't terribly tempting. Least not enough to repaint half my army. I guess it would be like that either way ��

The fluff could be ret-conned so they never got eaten...this is Ward after all!

No, it's a really important part of their identity, which is why it's still that way in the rulebook and we can even take Wraithguard/blades as troops. I don't see Ward screwing that idea up.

Mat Ward could cure the Emperor from his throne.
Its the rest of the designteam that keeps him at bay, sadly Ward likes long overtime shifts the day before deadline.....

I disagree with your hyperbole as Ward wrote the fluff in the Sisters WD Dex and it reads fine. He also helped write 6th ed and no one has complained about that fluff.

He does decent work, he just needs a strong editor to help focus his ideas better is all.

That would be awesome, its time for that lazy bum to get up and do something... or at leas have the primarchs come back!

Also, where is the Alaitoc supplement

Still, if this does have rules, missions, more PP and some fluff ... and comes in a hard copy i will pick it up!
