Iyanden Rumours

Post  Lore Weaver on Sat Jun 08, 2013 9:27 am

No rules for Iyanna. But...(see below)
Edit: ok the above isn't strictly true; there are two scenarios you can use her in. She's just a free upgrade to a spiritseer and gives you ML3. Can't use her in regular games.

Voice of Twilight: WC2
Blessing. Gives all friendly wraithguard, wraithblade, wraithlord and wraithknight models within 12" Battle Focus and Furious Charge.

Pretty nasty imo, but doesn't entirely make up for lack of conceal/reveal.

Warlord traits:
1 D3 re-rolls per game for the walord
2 Warlord and all units within 12" have FnP (6+)
3 Warlord and his unit have hatred
4 Warlord has the spirit mark rule. if he already has it he can mark 2 units per turn.
5 Warlord and his unit has +1 to deny the witch rolls
6 Warlord may re-roll failed saves. loses the ability once he suffers and unsaved wound

Celestial Lance
6" S8 AP2 Assault 1, Lance, Spirit Shatter (If it kills a character or MC, place the large blast marker over the slain model and all units (friend and foe) suffer a hit at the slain units toughness with AP -)
S+3 AP2 Melee, Impact, Lance, Spirit Shatter

S3 AP2 Melee, Mastercrafted, Spiritstealer (+1S to every unsaved wound caused earlier in the game)

Wraithforge Stone
During each of your movement phases, nominate a single wraithknight/wraithlord within 6". On a 3+ they gain a lost wound.

Guardian Helm
Always passes LoS rolls in units of wraithguard/wraithblades and wraithguard/wraithblade models can accept challenges if in the same unit.

Spear of Teuthlas (psyker only) -------Iyannas weapon!!!!
18" S9 AP - Assault 1, Fleshbane, Rending
SUser Ap - Melee, Armourbane, Fleshbane, Rending

The lance affects friendlies but not the bearer when it detonates someone.

1) An Iyanden player may opt to take a Wraithlord or Wraithknight as a warlord, even though they are not HQ choices.
2) Up to 5 Spiritseers may be taken under a single HQ slot, referred to as a Shadow Council.
3) Gifts of Asuryan are a set of relic wargear items that replace the Remnants of Lost Glory from the Eldar codex. For each character who may purchase items from the Remnants list, the player may opt to instead purchase from the Gifts of Asuryan list. A character may not purchase from both lists. Included in this list is the Celestial Lance and Wraithforge Stone (rules unknown)
3) There is a new warlord table for Iyanden players. Included in the 1 slot is "A Hero for Ages Past and Future," which entails rolling a d3. The result allows that many rerolls to to-hit, to-wound, armor penetration, or armor saves over the course of the game to the warlord.
4) Spiritseers that roll from the Runes of Battle psychic powers table replace the primaris "Conceal/Reveal" with "Voice of Twilight" (rules unknown)
5) There are three new Altar of War missions and five scenarios depicting pivotal battles in Iyanden's history. Included in the Altar of War missions is "Feints and Phantoms" and "Webway Assault," whilst "Yriel's Return" is a part of the historical scenarios (termed 'Echoes of War'). There also appears to be some sort of world spirit defense scenario against Chaos Daemons.
6) There are new Cities of Death and Planetstrike strategems available for Iyanden players.

I grabbed it for the IPad and although it's a little underwhelming I'm not regretting the purchase. The fluff is interesting with a lot of background about pre-Kraken Iyanden's wars against Chaos and a much more detailed account of the Tyranid invasion.

In all honesty getting special rules and traits, new wargear and a new psychic power was more than I expected...

Im excited this will actually be a book. (called me old fashioned but i like having something physical to hold and read) originally i thought it was Digital only but then gw when and stated the book is available to order June 15th Smile Being able to make a single Wraithlord or Wraithknight your warlord is an interesting choice, id be curious to see how it plays out in a game. Especially with that wraithforge stone, healing him back up most turns haha
