One of the few truly unfortunate aspects of 8th edition has been the death of a number of the Forge World armies. Imperial Guard have felt the sting, but so to have the Eldar with the death of Corsairs. They seemed poised for a seamless transition into 8th edition with their unique FOC consisting of small detachments with unique chapter tactics for the many Corsair sub-factions but it was not to be. With almost every unit entry being dropped in Index Xenos, and the truly crippling omission of an HQ choice which essentially destroyed them as a stand-alone faction after a brief but glorious run at the end of 7th edition.

Has anyone got the imperial armor xenos book? I got it today and went to the corsairs section and noticed the hqs are all absent! I couldnt find the corsair prince or the void dreamer. Am i missing something or did GW just kill my favorite eldar army lists?
Dallas area, TX. The Prince and Void dreamer did not have models, so they do not have rules. So you just have to use their rules to represent Princes, Void dreamers, etc.
With sharing a keyword being the way to take "allies" now, making a mixed list to represent Corsairs is even easier than ever before. No, Corsairs are not dead, and to me they are more viable then ever. But I never used the FW rules to represent my Corsairs anyway. The dark behind the eyes.

If you're worried about your opponent using 'fake' rules, you're having fun the wrong way. This hobby isn't about rules. It's about buying Citadel miniatures.
Please report to your nearest GW store for attitude readjustment. Take your wallet. Would you honestly still think that Eldar existed as an army?

I couldn't cite that, but it was just after the fw xenos book was released.
How annoying i built a huge corsair army I guess this is why I never committed to a FW Corsair list. They were always a fringe army that I never considered a "real" army anyway. I'd consider Sisters of Battle a 'real' army before I'd consider Corsairs, and I actually like Corsairs I feel sorry for those of you who built an "army" of Corasirs, but my advise is to use whichever Eldar, Harlie or DE rules to represent the models you have.
Yeah, sorry, unless FW magically decides to go back and remake the army, they're dead and basically proxies, despite Galef's assertion that his favorite proxies aren't proxies. It might even be true that the proxy army is better than the old one was in prior editions or would have been if updated I sure as hell know Tyrant's Legion was terrible and is much better as combined Guard and Marines, though I miss those units , but the army is gone.

FW is kinda struggling atm , so I wouldn't lose hope some of this will come back later. It may be that the design space for corsairs was getting a bit cluttered as well. Or changes in lore might lead to alterations. But honestly, I think it's just a rushed product from a company really struggling to keep up atm. What do you mean by struggeling? Transtion to 8th edition has been the fastest ever from FW , and on top of that, they even had the erataes!
It is mazing. I am a dyslectic, so bear with me. Dyslectics in a text based environment? Denying psykick powers since I think what bugs me is that this really doesn't seem like it would have taken a great deal of their time to do.
Would it really have taken that much more effort to convert the Corsair HQs , transports and Balestrikes into 8th edition dataslates? Dakka 5. Member List. Recent Topics. Top Rated Topics. Forum Tools Forum Tools Search. Eldar corsairs? Subject: Advert. For all intents and purposes, FW has indeed killed off Corsairs. I think they have maybe a couple of horribly-overpriced troop choices left and that's it. If you need any more evidence, consider the Void Sabre.
It was costed reasonably and nowhere near overpowered. No improved stats, no special rules, just a hugely inflated price tag as a final F-you to Corsair players. Thank you, FW , for so embodying the phrase "Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment. They got squatted. If Eldar were portrayed in the fluff as an mix of DE and Harlies, then yeah they would still exist.
However, your analogy is flawed because they are not portrayed this way in the fluff, but Corsair are I have been playing Corsair Eldar since before FW had Corsair models with Corsair rules. Galef wrote: However, your analogy is flawed because they are not portrayed this way in the fluff, but Corsair are - My analogy is just fine.
Corsairs might be a mix of Eldar and DE in the fluff, but they had their own mechanics that were separate and different from both of those. Hence, deleting Corsairs and saying 'just use Eldar' is worthless. Good for you. But that doesn't actually change anything. Corsairs had an army. Now they do not.
Corsairs had their own mechanics. Now they do not outside of their troop choices, which is all they've got left. Corsair Princes were not Autarchs. Nor were they Archons, Farseers, Troupe Masters or any such. Now they have no longer exist and you are forced to use one of those instead.
Void Dreamers were not Farseers. Nor were they Warlocks, Shadowseers or Spirit Seers. Now you must use those to represent them anyway. And by 'represent' we mean 'lie and pretend they're something that they're clearly not'. You say you're playing Corsairs, I say you're playing Eldar with a vague Corsair theme. I know they play exactly the same as any other Eldar army but I promise you they're Corsairs. Hell, most of them can't even take his mobility options.
So that leaves you with an Autarch. Does he have anything like the Void Sabre? Does he have anything even resembling the First Prince ability? Can he even have dual pistols? Can he take any DE gear? Can he be a psyker? Boy, it's like the Corsair Prince is right here with us.

Forge World has a tendency to make some really flavorful army lists, often not overly powerful, but dripping with flavor. And as an unabashed Eldar Corsair fan, I was interested to see what they would do with it. The previous edition of the Eldar Corsair list was woefully out of date. The short answer: Until this army list too is driven to obsolescence by the codex release schedule, in a pretty good place.
5 Counts-As options to Continue with Corsairs
If a rule differs from the Codex, it will be clearly stated. A model with this special rule that fires at an enemy unit. This move cannot be used to move them closer to any unit targeted by the shooting attack. A model with this special rule has two values listed for. The first is used in all respects.
