Endless sub-games, each getting their own expensive corebook sounds like the worst way to go with the 40k rpg line to me.
Aren't the games that already exist robust enough for people to play Eldar? Or Tau, or whatever? If not, why not? This to me is madness.
On the other side of the coin, if you had to buy the Rogue Trader book to play an Eldar, it'd be rather annoying, and espensive in its own way, wouldn't it? This is of course assuming that you weren't already going to buy RT anyway.
But to be clear, I'm speaking in terms of a whole book devoted to playing Eldar (or whatever), as opposed to something more like what we got in Into the Storm for Orks or Kroot, where it's not really built to support an all Ork/Kroot game (though nothing is stopping you).
I almost guarantee we'll get a "Blood of Martyrs" style Mechanicus book. We're getting them for all the other DH splats... no reason that won't be coming.
Oh I'm sure we'll get something like that. Though I doubt we'll get a whole new line for just the Mechanicus.
