8th Edition Corsairs no more?
« on: June 3, 2017, 08:14:25 AM »
Hi all,
A small number of you will have an interest in the FW Eldar Corsairs army list.

This is a bit firmer than speculation, the IA Index: Xenos does not include a separate section for the Eldar Corsairs (Renegades, the Elysian Drop Troops and Krieg Corps do). Instead what models FW made for the Corsairs have their own rules (I don't recognise 'Skyreavers Band' though...)

Anyways, the way out of this one for the corsairs is for a separate book to be released in the future, as GW is doing.

This is probably a wait and see job.

Edit: Also I appreciate that indexes are meant to provide continuity for the release of 8th Ed and enable players to get on with it from Day One. This is not a good signal for the provision of a proper list in the future however.

IA Index Xenos:
Imperial Armour ? Index: Xenos | Forge World Webstore

IA Index: Astra Militarum
Imperial Armour ? Index: Astra Militarum | Forge World Webstore

That is a bit worrying... However, I'm pretty optimistic they will have rules for them in their though. All you really have to do is stick rules for the Corsair infantry in there and away you go. Hornets, Warp Hunter, Phoenix all that stuff will assuredly be in there.

Definitely something to keep an eye on though. That would really suck if they weren't featured because I know Corsairs have become really popular. Glad mine can translate pretty between Eldar and DE though. Yikes I'd be going berserk!

As you mention, for AoS not every fraction was released at the launch. Others were added after the fact and/or updated. They might be in the second wave, as it were.

Nevermind, panic over.

Forgeworld replied to say there will be a proper army list.

Excellent. The more the merrier when it comes to list variety.

I'm experiencing nerd rage over the Titan Legions being mentioned as part of the Astra Militarum. That's just the new name for the Guard right? Rassafrassa...


(I get that it's psobably down to convenience more than anything, just joshing.)

Sadly there models are no longer available on the website. In fact they haven't been available for 2 years...
