So as well as buying Codex: Eldar for your iPad, you can also now pre-order Iyanden – A Codex: Eldar Supplement.
For thousands of years, the Eldar of Iyanden have sailed through the sea of stars, defending the galaxy’s eastern rim from the threat of Chaos. They have won great victories, but have known terrible tragedy also; what was once the most populous of craftworlds is now but a shadow of its former glory.
This supplement to Codex: Eldar allows you to tailor your Eldar collection into an implacable spirit host from Iyanden, greatest of the craftworlds. It tells the epoch-spanning history of Iyanden, from the Fall of the Eldar to the deepening darkness of the present day. You’ll also find a showcase of beautifully painted Eldar miniatures and a guide to the heraldry of the ghost halls. Finally, it includes new missions, both to recreate the craftworld’s famous battles and to reflect the favoured tactics of their warhosts, as well as new rules to use in games of Planetstrike and Cities of Death.

What I quite like about this concept is that it could in theory offer a whole range of Codex supplements for all the Warhammer 40000 races, all the various Ork clans could have their own supplements, likewise there could be a whole range of Space Marine Chapters as supplements to the main Codex.

In addition there is also the Warhammer 40,000 Altar of War: Eldar and you can pre-order Iyanden – A Codex: Eldar Supplement.
This Golden Demon winning Duel was on display in Warhammer World back in 2007.
It comprises a Space Marine Chaplin on a bike fighting an Eldar Exodite on a giant lizard.
The Exodites were a concept that had Eldar using giant lizards as mounts and large mounts for weapons (in a similar way to Elephants or Squiggoths). It was never taken further by Citadel, though some Epic concepts were sculptured and cast, but never went on sale. The concept proved popular with some and as a result there is an unofficial codex out on the tubes and some lovely models such as this one.
These are the original metal Eldar Jetbikes you got as extras when you purchased blister packs of Epic miniatures.
They are very simple castings but certainly capture the character of the bigger model of the time.
Scenery is from Snapdragon Studio.
An original old school Eldar from the very early days of Warhammer 40000. Though the Eldar have evolved over the years, you can still see in the modern figures their origins from this model.
