Is it just me or is the Eldar codex one of if not the worst laid out codex of them all?

Too many rules that dont really make sense for where the rules are actually located... And makes it very difficult to actually ascertain the rulesets for what your trying to make your list with.
And it lends too much need to have the main rulebook...

I've started running Eldar, no problems. Elaborate on your comments.

Absolutely, though it was the first of the new codex layout. Just wish they had used the book a few times in playtest and realized that cramming the color picture pages at the end of the book would make the easy reference sheet, less then easy to locate. or are you referring to the vehicle upgrades being hidden under the warwalker entry? or abilities granted by unit upgrades not being even mentioned in the points entry (ex. shadowseer)... Rolling Eyes
Anyway, easily fixed. You see, we eldar players are mentally superior to all other players, so simply being us makes the codex work. Very Happy

I know my Necron codex is a pain in the metallic rear. Twisted Evil

My main beef there was no central location for wargear, weapons, or vehicle upgrades like most codices have. And yes the vehicle upgrades put into a dinky little "fluff" box on the same page of a vehicle (warwalker) that doesn't even use those upgrades except the spirit stone...

And why can't lance be defined in the codex... who else has the bloody rule?

I picked up the codex on black friday after getting a stellar deal for the army box and some others (seeing as I go to the store at 5:45 am and some one already bought the wolves battle force...) and I was getting a bit fustrated by how the codex was laid out and thought I'd ask if I'm the only one who felt that way.
