This category contains all of the Eldar Corsair bands currently known to the Ordo Xenos of the Inquisition. Just tried putting together a Corsair list in Battle Scribe, and it hit me – without any HQ options, and without the Asuryani or Drukhari. With the decent Eldar leadership and the fact that you likely aren’t going to be using any large units of Corsairs this is actually pretty helpful.

Home Forum Help Calendar Articles. Crying through an eye-patch- Eldar Corsairs in 8th edition. I tread the hidden path Eldar, Raven Guard, Slaanesh.
What happened to the Corsairs in 8th?
So what is left for Corsair players? While it would be nice to have some thing offical, I think we’ll have to go back to making a custom rule set for friendly games. Given how in 7th they were basically DE with access to CWE kit, it might not be too hard to build them back up again.
Harlequins, Clans Skyre, Astra Telepathica. I think you’ll need to wait for them epdar expand the range.
They only translated over rules for models they created. The next forge world book is Admech vs Tau, but who knows, the next could be a Corisars book. Until then, you have the two other aldari factions to proxy from. As long as you keep the corisars and craftworld units in different detachments, the craftworlders can still get all their benefits.
So, you’ll need to corsirs some dldar HQ to lead the corisar battalion? Harlequin Army Blog Quote from: Eldar, Dark Angels, World Eaters. While Cofsairs never played using the actual Corsair rules, I was building towards that in the end of 7th and now that dream is gone.
So in the end, not only is the FW Index total crap IMO, they absolutely gutted one of the most interesting armies to emerge in 7th and effectively trashed the prospect of all the units we all spent so much time and money kitbashing into existence. I think FW did a major disservice to its fans and customers and has dropped the ball dismally.
I can only think that if Alan Bligh had not passed away this would not have happened.

IMO all is not lost. I actually think that what remains is quite useful though not foot based Corsair Reavers. Opponents can target the Skyreavers which will generate soulbursts for other nearby units Soulbursts kicked out to Dark Lance Jetbikes could be super nasty. Ignore them and potentially eat a boat load of shuriken or splinter fire in the subsequent turns. If you had 3x Dark Lance Jetbikes, all riding close your opponent is gonna be scared to freaking shoot you!
If you can avoid any first turn charges it should be a very solid army, especially in the early goings. Well those are my initial impressions.
Anyway great article AP. I have hopes that the Corsairs will not be ignored forever. Something I thought of last night. Did you ever notice how similar the Coterie system is to the 8th ed Detachments? Perhaps some of this was designed with 8th in mind Plus they still have Corsair Coterie Keywords just sitting there. Until then though, I’ll definitely be working alongside you to figure out a way to make these bad boys work again.
Corsairs shall rise again! October 26, Check out my army! Killersquid on October 25, Cavalier on October 26, Aurics Pride on October 26, Saim-Dann Full Member Posts: Have read all this stuff before the 8th ed rules came out.
Then the same before the indexes came out. Now am reading the exact same paranoia with the Corsairs. Is there a preview that I’ve missed that says the AI-Xenox is the final ruling? Bad business if that is the case. FW is definitely having issues. They’ve delayed another big Heresy Book just got that in my email this morning. I’m thoroughly disappointed as long time FW customer.
Also I did get in my first game corsaies my Skyreavers and I was not disappointed. The game only went 3 turns and they weren’t in range of anything turn 1 but as I suspected they did go ignored in favor of the Jetbikes.
What surprised me was how they benefited from Soulburst. Their mobility was pretty shocking too. You see it on paper and its one thing, but actually moving the unit on the tabletop is another. While I’m gonna be diving more into CWE going forward they are gonna be my go-to for Ynnari troops in elldar battalion no questions asked Games Workshop made a lot of changes from indexes to codexes so far.
Why are we assuming FW won’t do the same. They would lose a lot of customers if they did not follow GW’s structure. November 4, No infringement of their trademarks is intended.
