What's New Today from the White Dwarf Team

The cry on the wind

Eldar Guardians form the backbone of many craftworld armies. Skilled and graceful warriors, they fight to preserve their race from extinction and take their battlefield duties extremely seriously. Those Guardians with an aptitude for speed and alacrity take on the mantle of Windriders, racing into battle on sleek jetbikes. Ranging ahead of the craftworld strike force, they scout out the land and harass the flanks of the enemy army before powering away to safety, ready for another strike. It’s a foolish commander who ignores a Windrider host, for they can strike anywhere, any time, and they do so without hesitation.

This new plastic boxed set includes three Eldar Windriders, the perfect addition to an existing Eldar force or, perhaps, a new army entirely. Each jetbike comes with three weapon options, too: shuriken catapults, shuriken cannons and scatter lasers.

With their speed and manoeuvrability, Windriders are perfect for sneaking around behind the enemy army. Armed with Scatter Laser and Shuriken Cannons, they’ll make short work of enemy armour.

Note how the vanes that are normally mounted on a Guardian’s backpack can be found on the hull of the jetbike instead, showing that rider and mount are truly one in battle.

Like Dark Eldar and Harlequin jetbikes, the craftworld Eldar jetbike now also features a heads-up-display for the rider. It can be positioned flush to the hull or, as shown here, raised, ready for an attack run.
