|Autarchs are the supreme commanders of the Eldar warhost, and have a consummate understanding of the art of war. An Autarch's insight into the specialities of each element of the Eldar way of war gives him an unparalleled strategic ability that an Exarch, obsessed with one facet of war, could never hope to achieve.|
When an Eldar army is lead by an Autarch it functions as a well-honed machine, each component acting in perfect concert with the others. However, it is not purely as a commander that the Autarch excels. When the battle-lust calls, he will spearhead assaults, duelling with the leaders of the enemy armies or destroying war machines with contemptuous ease.
