Descendants of Isha

In the grim darkness of the future there is only war, and now the Eldar are among its combatants.  The latest expansion for Warhammer 40,000: Conquest adds Eldar and Dark Eldar warlords, along with a range of other cards, to this living card game (See: Are LCG’s the Game of the Future?).  If you’re not already a fan of the Warhammer universe or its collectable games then maybe these space-faring elves will win you over.
