Codex: Harlequins is an expansion book for the 7th Edition of Warhammer 40,000.

Cover Description

For the Harlequins of the Eldar, there is no distinction between art and war. They combine a psychedelic flair with the pinpoint skill of the master duellist, every slicing shuriken or stabbing blade another stitch in the tapestries of carnage they weave. The acrobatic leaps and mocking bows of the Harlequin Troupes are punctuated with bloody and inventive kills, for the warrior-dancers of the Laughing God are deadly grace made flesh, and have always revelled in the dark splendour of battle. However, some whisper that under all the mirth and extravagence lies an ageless struggle against the Chaos Gods, and that through them, the hopes of their dying race may yet come to pass.
