Really? He better be damn cool to justify that horrible color scheme and just... overall look. I am no Warhammer buff so educate me. Was hard enough just to play Eldar, then apparently they ripped something off it's sister series, Liberace 40,000.

It looks like an Autarch (http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/catalog/productDetail.jsp?catId=cat440239a&prodId=prod1060099). They are like the 4 star generals of the Eldar army.

This one has swooping hawk wings. These are like the jet packs of the Eldar world.

I think the model is on a female possibly? It looks disproportionate compared to the original GW model.

(I have an Eldar army for table top WH40k. In game terms they are awesome. With certain upgrades they can do a ton of power weapon attacks. Im glad to see the Autarch has finally made it into the video game, but it looks a little weird.)

Eldars are the anime cosplayers of WH40k.

... Yeah, I hope its on a female. The one on the site you linked actually... looks a lot better despite the same colors.

I believe I remember an article I read about it referring to it as a she.

It seems in the games, all Eldar leaders are female. Which is a little odd, but I'll roll with it...

Aside from the Warlock and the Spider.
