Warhammer 40,000: Tacticus launches new Aeldari faction with two brand new heroes

Snowprint Studios announced its latest release, Warhammer 40,000: Tacticus, will launch a brand new faction available to all players on September 18th. The Aeldari, a technological-based faction, will launch for the public to celebrate the successful PvP tournament held recently, which saw over 38,000 participants.

The first two Aeldari characters launching ahead of the rest of the planned roster are Calandis Tawaren and Aethana Barantharal. Calandis is a stealthy ranged unit who intends to be quite a slippery little unit, disappearing in a flash before popping up across the map to snipe her enemies.

Aethana, on the other hand, is a strategic leader unit who will lead the charge ahead of all of her teammates. With buff skills, strong melee abilities, and a ton of health, this one is quite the tank for your roster. Both of these units will be available right away, with more Aeldari characters in the plans for the future of Warhammer 40,000: Tacticus.
