. The eldar haven’t seen anything actually new in, like, forever.
Ugh, very true! I have a feeling craftworld and drukhari and both going to get squatted like baseline astartes, (the poor bastards), and ynnari will become the new eldar. Just a hunch.

hmm buff necrons. Tres interessant! ) along with 9th edition 40k being ushered in. Tres tres interessant. Just as well, since I can't remember how to play 8th. not that I really play 40k at all these day.

The "major" Eldar reference I was referring is the Ynnari release with Gathering Storm since that had major story tie-ins and technically introduced a new faction. Since then the only Eldar releases I can think of would be Jain Zar vs the incuboys. The Admech releases make sense since that line needs the unit variety, although it would help if they would just port over the 30k units to 40k too.

Anyway, given that Necrons are one of the few armies (other than Tau and Orks) that have no option of souping up, it would be nice if they got some new units.

Also, those polar bears remind me of the Golden Compass novel so I might need to figure out which one of my armies could use an armoured polar bear.

Wait, the eldar got a new character? I must have missed that. Links, s’il vous plait...

They’re always grumping about something - that’s what makes em grognards.
I think he meant Jain Zar.

Grognard literally comes from the French word 'Grogner', which means 'to grumble.' Grognard was a term originally used for Napoleon's Old Guard, (despite the name, most of them were in their 30's) the veterans of his army. Regular troops were expected to keep their mouths shut and get on with things, but due to the respect for their experience and skill, the Old Guard were permitted to speak freely, often complaining about the hardships of campaigning and earning the moniker Les Grognards.

Also, armoured bears would potentially be very cool.

Not much point at the moment. No games happening and no players even if there were. I was just being educational.

Huh, I assumed the etymology of grognard was something everyone just knew. (A truly groggy stance, to be sure. :lol:)

According to some people who managed to get a peek at a hidden pdf file on the Warhammer Community domain there's a new edition coming out.
By the time I got there the link was down so I can't vouch for it but here's a screenshot of the pdf that someone posted on reddit.

Looks like new everything except for the flyer and the triarch stalker in the background.
