New Eldar Releases Post

Games Workshop has released their 8th edition wave of Eldar products. Come check out their new Start Collecting Box, Eldrad, and dice!

Last week saw only the sole release of Shadespire, which has now been drowned out by the large amount of fresh Eldar releases that are now available. Our very own Rob Baer was able to get a hold of the standalone Eldrad kit, the new Start Collecting Craftworlds Box, and one of the several themed dice sets. Here is a sample of our quick and dirty review to give you the lowdown on what you can expect to see in these new Eldar releases.

Eldar New Releases

This week’s releases include a whole new Start Collecting Craftworlds Box that differs from the original one by focusing more on the Wraith Construct aspect of the Eldar. The previous version contained a Fire Prism, Jetbikes, and a Farseer. The new version contains a Wraitlord, War Walker, a squad of Wraiths that can be made into Wraithblades or Wraithguard, and a Farseer.

You could assemble the Farseer as a Warlock instead if you are in a pinch. This is the first 8th Edition Start Collecting box and contains no formations or special detachment rules for 8th.

Eldrad Standalone

Eldrad Ulthran has finally come in his own standalone kit. We first saw him in the Death Masque box set where he and a bunch of Harlequins faced off against the Deathwatch. He retails for $25 and comes on two sprues. He comes on a 32mm base and the kit includes a stylized base element. He is quite easy to put together. However, you may want to use some plastic cement to attach the front and back section of his cape together to avoid having a seam there. He has the option to wield his Witchblade in his hand or have it sheathed in his scabbard and a have his hand outstretched as if casting a power.

Start Collecting! Craftworlds: $85


This is a great-value box set that gives you an immediate collection of fantastic Aeldari miniatures, which you can assemble and use right away in games of Warhammer 40,000! You’ll receive a Farseer, 5 Wraithguard (who can be optionally assembled as Wraithblades), a Wraithlord and a War Walker, along with 2 Aeldari transfer sheets.

Swooping Hawks Dice: $11.25


A hard-wearing, tough plastic cube containing 20 12mm dice styled to complement your favourite Aspect Shrine. These dice are coloured turquoise to match the Swooping Hawks, and feature white numbers as well as their icon on each face.

Eldrad Ulthran: $25


This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble Eldrad Ulthran. Standing tall, wielding a beautifully-jeweled witchblade and the Staff of Ulthamar, he wears impressively elaborate armour reflecting his status as high Farseer. Patterns of psycho-receptive wraithbone runes are secreted about the model – Eldrad is said to have devised over a dozen distinct runes.

This kit comes as 13 components, and is supplied with a Citadel 25mm Round base.

These new Eldar releases are available now online and in local Games Workshop stores. Be sure to press play on our quick and dirty unboxing and review video below for the full review.
