Noble warriors without equal, Psykers of emmence power. War Elevated To Artform. The Craftworld Eldar are a dying race in a universe of enveloping darkness.

Bringing swift death to thier enemies, the Eldar are masters of the battlefield, Guardians, Aspect hosts, warlocks & the Wraith hosts a hold the line over which chaos must cross.

Lost in the vastness of space, the craftworlds float in utter isolation. Distant from the warmth of suns, they gaze into the darkness of empty space. Within them live the survivors of a civilisation bought to the brink of destruction. These are the Aeldari, a race that is all but extinct, the last remnants of a people whose mere dreams once overturned worlds and quenched suns.
