THE WARHAMMER 40,000 GAME
The Warhammer 40,000 rulebook contains the rules you need tofight battles with your Citadel miniatures in the war-tornuniverse of the 41st millennium. Every army has its own codexbook that works with these rules and allows you to turn yourcollection of miniatures into an army organised and ready forbattle. This codex describes the untamed forces of the EldarExodites, details the army, and displays miniatures andconversions that you can collect.
WHY COLLECT AN EXODITE ARMY?
A typical Exodite force consists of numerous cavalry units, ableto deliver a fierce and deadly assault en masse, or attack alongan extended front. These powerful units are supported byspecialised units of beasts that can use their bestial abilities totake down tough or numerous opponents. These are likewisebacked up by enormous creatures capable of tearing open abattle tank or bringing down the largest of foes. These strengthsare balanced by the fact that an Exodite army will tend to beoutnumbered by most other forces, requiring their commanderto maneuver them carefully to avoid excessive losses beforethey can reach close combat, where they will generally excel.The Exodites are quite an interesting army to play, and not forthe beginner. You will need to convert many of the models forthe army, which requires some skill and much patience.However, there are few sights as breathtaking as a fully-converted and well painted Exodite army taking the field!
HOW THIS BOOK WORKS
This codex is split into five main sections that deal withdifferent aspects of the army:
The Eldar Exodites
The first section introduces the Eldar Exodites and their part inthe Warhammer 40,000 universe. It includes details of how theyfled from the catastrophic times of the Fall, how they fared afterthese tumultuous times, and the state of the Exodite worlds inthe present time period. It also presents a detailed backgroundon Exodite beliefs and spiritualism, as well as their ways of war.
Forces of the Exodites
Each and every character, troop type, vehicle, beast andmonstrous creature in the Exodite army is examined in thesecond section. You will find a full description, alongsidecomplete rules and details of any unique powers they possess orspecialist wargear they carry into battle. Also in the section, youwill find a listing of special rules and wargear that apply tonumerous units in the Exodite army.

Exodites in Competitive Play
While this codex presents a balanced and playable army list forthe Eldar Exodites, it is by no means official and it is unlikelythat you will be able to obtain permission to use it in atournament or competitive league. While it is by no means theprimary scope of this document, it would be quite a pity tospend a good deal of time lovingly converting and painting abeautiful Exodite army, only to be unable to use it in acompetitive setting if the urge strikes. With this in mind, thefinal section of this codex presents suggestions for fielding the
various Exodite units as a “Counts As” force using the rules for
standard craftworld Eldar. Note that you will need to own acopy of the official Eldar Codex in order to use the ideaspresented in this section, as no actual rules are given.
