Games Workshop Previews Prince Yriel for 40k

There are many special characters in the Aeldari ranks. One such is Prince Yriel of Craftworld Iyanden, Corsair of the skyways. Get a look at his miniature as well as his new rules coming in the updated Aeldari Codex in this preview.

From the article:

Prince Yriel of Iyanden is one of the most infamous pirate lords in the galaxy, a legend whose exploits have inspired many an adventurous Aeldari into a life of high-stakes swashbuckling. He’s no mere myth, however. He’s a former Autarch of Craftworld Iyanden who now leads his magnificent band of Corsairs – known as Anhrathe in the Aeldari tongue – to glory in the upcoming Codex: Aeldari.

In his youth, Yriel was chosen to walk the Path of Command and become an Autarch, but his illustrious career was cut short when he rashly left Iyanden open to attack from Chaos raiders. Censured, his pride drove him to abandon his craftworld with many faithful warriors in tow, forming the Eldritch Raiders Corsair fleet.

Now, thanks to his life as a corsair prince, Yriel’s strategic skills are sharpened to a razor edge, and he commands his army with the acumen of an Autarch. In fact, his Path of Command ability is more expansive than usual, affecting units with the Anhrathe keyword in addition to the usual Core.
