Winds of change: How we can expect traditional Eldar armies to transition into their new codex

With a new Codex out, everything is up in the air... so how will we build our armies with the new dex? I will start working on a series of posts to cover the different ways Eldar used to be played and how they will likely transition into the new Codex.  I will primarily focus on Mech, Foot, Jetbike Eldar and finish off the series discussing hybrid armies that combined a little bit of everything. I'll go over each of these play styles, discuss what has changed and throw down a sample list of what I think might be a good start for that type of army. This first post will discuss Mechdar.

The sky is not falling, Eldar will not be bad in the new codex...(plus update with pictures from the codex inside)

As I read the leaked codex info and see people's commentary, I am so perplexed that suddenly everyone is an expert on Eldar, the Meta and game balance. The internet is wrong people, Eldar will not suck in the upcoming release and I'll tell you why!

More rumors from people who say they saw the codex:

So moving on from the last rumor "troll" post, there are some more people posting things they claim to have seen in the new Eldar codex, and these seem pretty legit this time around as well...

Insight on Eldar Vehicles, vehicle upgrades, special wargear and their points costs:

Floating around the web is one of the preview pages for the Eldar Codex  that has the available vehicle options and wargear options with their points costs. I'll post that picture here and we can guess what it means for our Eldar vehicles and characters.

Spirit Chamber editorial: Speculations and concerns about the new Eldar codex...

With just about a week ft for the new Eldar Codex to come out and a lot of the info already available floating around, there are still a few unanswered questions and concerns I have about the Eldar... specifically how prevalent Warlocks will be and how accessible Fortune and other Staple Eldar powers will be or how the lack of access to these things will affect Eldar going forward?

GW misposted FAQ? Some insight into Monofilament weapons and Support Weapon Batteries...

GW has randomly posted an Eldar FAQ update for June, perhaps in anticipation of errors already in the Codex? Regardless, it refers to the weapon profile of the Shadow Weaver which will shed some light onto Warp Spider and Night Spinner weapons as well as Support Weapon Batteries.

Fire Dragon rules rumors (now updated with actual codex entry picture):

So there are rules for the Fire Dragon unit entry floating around on the internet, here is what they are apparently going to be like in the new codex...Now this post is updated with the actual picture of the unit entry from the codex!

Eldar Pre-Orders are up, with some rule snippets as well...

Eldar are now up for pre-order, so now we can finally tell GW to shut up and take our money, right?

And yet another Eldar codex update!

Some more Eldar rumors have come out, this time the source is an alleged info sheet sent to GW stores...Apply salt as needed but they definitely give us food for thought and seem reasonable.

Eldar Rumors: Overview

It seems as though short of someone going through the codex itself and answering questions, we pretty much have all the info we can glean about the Eldar. So putting it all together, what do we have to work with? This post will be an overview of the current Eldar rumors and what we can logically extrapolate form them.
