A New Webway Portal Awakens

By nirurin | November 1, 2017 | 0 Comments

Greetings to anyone who finds their way here, mostly I suspect via the DakkaDakka Eldar Tactica thread! Welcome to a new place on the interwebs for all things 40k.

For now, I'll be dedicating my time (and this site) to Eldar, mostly focusing on Craftworlds and the new Codex release for 8th Edition. However, as time goes on, I may start to add in more information and knowledge, probably starting with Ynnari and working through from there.

Eventually, I may even start to bring other races into the fold. We shall see.

For now, I just wanted to say a universal hello, and to ask you to be patient while I get everything updated and running.

If anyone has any suggestions for the site, either visual tips or suggestions for edits/additions to the tactica sections, please get in touch. The easiest way for now may be a PM on DakkaDakka (send to Niiru). Or you can contact me via this site... once I have some kind of contact form set up!

Watch this space, and be wary travelers. The universe is full of peril.
