Default Eldrad Ulthran... What Happened?

Ok ok ok so I see Eldar and I want to make an Ulthwe army. Now I hear that Eldrad Ulthran is dead. Um what happened? How did he die, where, when, why? Also can I still use the special character or is there a successor or what? Dont tell me the Eldrad model is useless as him now.

Sory for the stupid question but I dont have the slightest clue how to find the answer and I am so far terrible with the 40k fluff for the most part. Slowly learning.

Poor old Eldrad had a hard time in the EoT campaign. I guess GW had had enough of the calm, composed seer led Eldar, and thought it was time to put someone new at the top.

Eldrad fragmented his consciousness into many parts to produce the waystones, these were used to coordinate the arrival of reinforcements for the webway strike forces. He then went toe-to-toe with the corrupted soul of one of the Talismans of Vaul, the blackstone fortresses that were doing nasty things to cadia. And he lost. Where he was expecting to find the terrified soul of the fortress, he found a soulthirsty chunk of chaos.
One slurping sound later, no more Eldrad.

At the moment it should be fine to use the charcacter, the way GW are bunching up events at the end of the 41st millenium, there ought to be no problem with playing a mission set a few decades before the EoT camapain. Or even set during the campaing, but before the death of Eldrad.

All in all it's your hobby, and until something is illegal, and provided it's not immoral, then go for it!

poor old eldrad, but to tell the truth, i'm sorta glad, he's just very boring isn't he? perhaps his successor is much more interesting (seeing as he was described as "controversial")

Way too expensive, but then to have what amounts to a 2+ agoniser, thats nasty.
Not nearly nasty enough. Somebody work out how much a farseer with all that stuff, singing spear and sprit stones would cost please?

I remember reading the peice of fluff behind him.. getting his soul eating up by the warp or smt.. It was in one of the white dwarf issues nearing the end of the EoT campaign.. His visions and stuff were clouded, and then he tried to clear it all and see into the future or something.. then got trapped and the warp got hold of him.. :-\
(aww.. i like dark reapers..)

never liked Eldrad much, always came off as the booksy type of knowitall (in his case though...... ;D) and the character is the most heinous waste of points ever, look at nuhadu theres value for money ;D, maybe his successor could be Nuhadu!!!! well maybe not but still.. I can dream
