Coming Soon: They Came from the Webway…

Next week, a new codex is coming – and with it, a plastic kit that brings an iconic piece of the Aeldari lore to life…


In less than a year (it’s hard to believe just how new the new edition of Warhammer 40,000 really is!) we’ve seen the Aeldari brought to life through a series of codexes – from the varied armies of the Craftworlds to the much-vaunted Drukhari book.

Now, it’s the Harlequins’ turn to receive an awesome codex of their own – and just as Codex: Craftworlds and Codex: Drukhari were designed to reflect the unique nature of their respective armies, Codex: Harlequins gives the Harlequins greater depth and tactical flexibility than ever before. In the codex, you’ll find some of our most unusual faction rules ever with the Masque Forms, from the sinister morale-manipulating powers of the Silent Shroud to the warriors of the Dreaming Shadow – who turn death itself to their advantage:


We weren’t kidding! It’s not just faction rules – inside, you’ll also find Stratagems, Warlord Traits, Relics and rich lore that explores just what the servants of the Laughing God have been up to since the Cicatrix Maledictum opened and the Yncarne was born.

If you’re a truly dedicated worshipper of Cegorach, make sure to pick up the Collector’s Edition – a lavishly realised version of your codex featuring a soft-touch cover with unique art. You won’t want to miss out on your Datacards, either – an invaluable in-game resource that makes tracking your Tactical Objectives, psychic powers and Stratagems simple.  

The Harlequins codex was the perfect chance for our designers to bring an iconic piece of Aeldari lore to life. For years, the webway and webway portals have been a key part of the Aeldari background, and now, you’ll be able to add one of your own to your collection thanks to a magnificent new multipart plastic kit!

The Aeldari Webway Gate is HUGE – you’ll be able to comfortably fit a Wraithknight between the two halves. You may be wondering how you add this piece of terrain to your games. We’re keen to make sure that every Aeldari army gets access to the Webway Gate, and so, as well as finding rules and matched play points in Codex: Harlequins, you’ll also be able to find the datasheet in the box.

You’ll be able to add a Webway Gate to your Drukhari, Craftworlds and Harlequins armies, and you can use it in-game to deploy your units up close to enemy lines – imagine using it to drop in a clutch of Talos Pain Engines, or a pack of Howling Banshees…


You’ll be able to pre-order your Harlequins codex and Webway Gate next week – let us know on the Warhammer 40,000 Facebook page what you’re most excited about.
