Loving the reaver and scourge HQs.

The scourge one might be a little too cheap as he is basically an archon with free ghostplate that is jump infantry and can deep strike.

The random warpbeasts seem too difficult to calculate every phase and keep track of. Also they should have the possibility of having lower WS and BS. Make it just D6, so they could be WS 6(very high) or they could be WS 1 and need 5s to hit guardsmen.

I liked the idea of a fast short ranged tank hunter with DE who love fire and bringing about blazing fire death. Something about getting close enough to hear the screams of the crew of vehicles when they are burned alive seemed to appeal to me. I think one of the following would be a nice addition.

FA choice
Pyrolancer
100pts
AV 11 11 10
Fast Skimmer Open Topped
Aerial Assault
Night Vision
Tank Hunters
Deep Strike
Three Heat Lances
Transport Capacity 5 models
Ravager Hull




FA choice
Kindler
80pts
AV 10 10 10
Squadron 1-3
Fast Skimmer Open Topped
Aerial Assault
Night Vision
Flicker Field
Two Twin Linked Heat Lances
The Heat lances beam can be fire in a dispersal mode in which case they fire as a flamer.
Venom Hull

Should prove an interesting read...

I keep forgetting just how many different types of units there actually are for the DE...

That would be an ecumenical matter...

true there are a lot, unfortuneatly many of them are very subpar, dont have enough fluff or dont come close to actually personifying their fluff. IE mandrakes.

My thoughts on a elite wrack unit



Dark Eldar Haemoculi are always out to find new material for their bizarre experiments and what better place to look for loose limbs than a battle field. The pain and torment of battlefield medicine creates pure ecstasy for the Dark Ones. To help them perform their dark arts Haemonculi will take to battle some of the must trusted wracks not to just kill the enemy but to harvest them for organs, blood, flesh and bones.

Battle Chirurgeons
Elite Choice
3-10 Models
15pts per model
A Dark Eldar army must contain a haemoculus to include Chirugeons. Wracks become troops and Chirugeons become elite wracks
Characteristics WS BS S T W I A Ld Sv
Chirurgeon 4 4 3 4 1 4 2 9 6+
Qyreon 4 4 3 4 1 4 3 9 6+
Monsterous Grotesque 3* 3* 3* 3* 3 3* d6 3* 6+


Wargear
Gnarlskin
Combat Drugs
Paralysis Probe
Mini Liquifier


Special Rules
Night Vision
Power From Pain
Altered Physique
Battlefield Medicine
Created a Monster
Abomination

Cannot Sweeping Advance must always Consolidate you will see why below

May take a Venom or Raider as a dedicated transport.
One Chirurgeon may be upgraded to Qyreon for +10pts He may also take additional wargear as an acothyst.
One in three Chirurgeons may exchange their Mini Liquifiers for normal Liquifiers +5pts or Hex Rifles +10pts



Paralysis Probe
A paralysis probe is a large nasty looking syringe with a power weapons repulsion field around the needle. It is used to inject very potent paralysis drugs into its victims. Because of the difficulty in using it will not ignore all armor but a well place attack will punch through anything leaving an enemy completely helpless. It can also be used to punch right through a vehicles armor and inject acid into electronics, hydraulics weapons stores or fuel tanks
A model with a Paralysis Probe has the Rending universal special rule.

Mini Liquifier
A smaller Liquifier that shoots small acid filled balls
A Mini Liquifier is a pistol with the following statline:
Strength 12" 3 AP D6 Pistol

Battlefield Medicine

Chirurgeons can use their skills to bring their comrades back from crippling injuries
A the Chirgeons can attempt to bring fallen comrades back to the fight. Roll a d6 for any Chirurgeon, Wrack, Grotesque or Haemoculus that was removed as a casualty in the previous round of combat. On 5+ they are revived with 1 wound. Models returned in this way join their previous unit and must be placed in coherency and more than 1" away from enemy models.


Created a Monster

If the Chirurgeons are joined with a Haemonculus and at the end of any round of combat that Chirurgeons took part in and which no enemies are left engaged(either having fled or been destroyed) they may attempt to create a monstrous creation out of the bodies of fallen enemies by passing a Leadership Test. If they succeed add a monstrous grotesque to the unit with the following statline. WS3* BS3* S3* T3* W3 I3* Ad6 Ld.3* Sv6+ Roll a d6 for every enemy model removed as a casualty in the previous combat, you may replace any * with the value of one of the dice you rolled. The monstrous grotesque is equipped with any pistol or rapid fire weapon the slain enemies carried. Monstrous Grotesque are unstable creations and often die shortly after they are created. At the begining of each DE movement phase roll each Monstrous Grotesque must roll under its Leadership on one d6. If it fails it is removed from the table as a casualty.


Abomination

Any unit destoryed in combat with Chirurgeons generates 2 pain tokens instead of one as the fallen enemies are chopped up into pieces and all manner of deranged acts are performed.

I don't really like the mini liquifier, it'd be like spitting a glob of acid, and the Liquifier Gun is basically pistolish in size anyway.

Maybe making it a flame template, but you still have to roll to hit anything under it.

The Monstrous Grotesques could do with a different name, being there's already Grots.

Also, being the DE see other races weapons as beneath them + only the haems most elite or trusted troops get anything past a liquifier gun, the creations wouldn't likely be given weapons. They're also likely to be lobotimised for their trouble.

I'd say that if you made a monster, it'd want to be along the lines of a a WS3 / BS1 / S4 / T4 / W2 / I4 / A2 / Ld3 / Sv6+ with feel no pain, to represent the ramshackle nature held together by wire and drugs.

If I were to put this type of thing in the codex, I'd be tempted to make this sort of unit a small HQ retinue type affair, say 1-6 models (being each haem could feasibly have one attached) and I already have an Elite Wracks unit in the Waerloga

You know, I still love the idea of Heat Lances on a Venom. The Pain Engine has a twin-linked Heat Lance as an option. Add a couple from the Reaver sets, and you gain a rather scary little attack ship...

That would be an ecumenical matter...

True - How Remiss of me.
I'll resolve that now.

ignoring a couple of minor editing errors...

Weapon: Stinger Rifle
Range- 24", Str-X, AP-5, Type- Rapid Fire, Poisoned (2+).

Weapon: Hex Repeater
Range- 36", Str-X, AP-4, Type- Assault 3 / Heavy 4, Sniper - Rending, Pinning.
Special Rules: A model that suffers an unsaved wound from a Hex Repeater must take a characteristic test based on their Wounds value. If they fail the test they are removed from play, with no saves of any kind.

same problem acothysts currently have. they dont have a CCW so giving them a venom bade leaves them with 2 attack and giving them a scissorhand gives them only 3 attacks. I suggest giving the Farosse a pistol as stock. he can get a shooty weapon if he likes or he can be CC oriented.

The waerloga are shooters primarily, haem fire support. They have poisoned ccws, but I was going for a shooty squad. The Farosse is basicly there for the sake of it, to add a little counterassaultish ability to a shooty squad, that only rarely likely to be taken, like the Warrior Sybarite :p

Personally I don't really see myself running a Farosse in my Waerloga squad, and I encourage you to ignore it too xD

Along with the hex repeater, I'm probably going to add the options of a Soul Seeker Cannon and some sort of anti-tank gun.

yeah I get what you mean. I would give the Farosse the option to swap his Splinter Rifle for a Splinter Pistol at no points so if you want a CC sarge in the unit you can get one.

Also I would make them 12 points a model and give them the 2+ to wound rifles stock. 15points for a model armed with one of those is too much. Sternguard are only 25 points and they have a ton more ammo options and a far better statline.

Stinger Pistols are 5pts per, as are venom blades - that seems to be the standard for upgrading Poisoned (4+) to Poisoned (2+).
12pts base makes w/hex rifle 27 each aswell.

That said - being these are all meant to be Acothyst+ grade Wracks, I'll give them all Splinter Pistols, with the option to upgrade to stingers, and the option to upgrade their Poisoned Weapon to a Venom Blade.

\

I tend to think that most things in the codex get rounded to the nearest 5 points and I think that 5 is a bit over priced for a stinger, hence no one uses it. Venom blades are 5 points because they upgrade characters from str3 without posion to posioned.

I actually like the idea of them not having pistols base, so the normal trooper only has 1 attack as these are a . but the sarge should be able to have pistol and ccw base to make the ccw upgrades seem useful.

I think they are elite, so they should be elite, not just slightly more expensive warriros, maybe 13 points is a good price for a Waerloga and a Stinger Rifle, but 15 IS over costed. I think 12 is good as it makes the basic squad much better but then the upgrades get a little pricey. Taking all liquifiers for 20pts/model is VERY strong. 22pts per model is still strong. 27points per model for a hexriflle that can move and shoot sniping is pretty good at 36"

I know this is a tangent, but its a thought that has just occurred to me...

You get Kabals that will only use millennia old equipment... what if it swung the other way? What is you had a Kabal that only used the cutting edge inventions created?

I was working on this today. Then as a result of the Unique Characters thread I've decided to take a break from sanity, and make a truly ridiculous over the top character, with insane fluff and craziness everywhere, as a kind of parody or piss take of those that people have made elsewhere.

Persephone - Queen of the Damned
Spoiler:

The bastard daughter of Asdrubael Vect and a Mandrake Queen (we're assuming they have queens ok, it was a long night, there were a lot of drugs involved, mistakes were made and mandrake queens got pregnant.)
Enhanced by Urien Rakarth himself, bequeathed with advanced powers of regeneration, stealth and stamina.
Was selected by the Harlequins to join the troupe (it was a mistake), joined them for a laugh, then left because it wasn't as funny as she thought the bright colours implied (way less sex and murder than she expected), stealing a bunch of gear and lining the ‘quins underwear with a hyper-toxin equivalent of itching powder.
Had a brief fling with a high standing Necron Lord (all those attachments oh my!).
Seduced a Grey Night Captain.
And his bodyguard.
And 15 Jokaero.
At the same time.
Opened a portal into the Emperors palace - led a dozen Orks, two dozen humans from a hiveworld, and 4 sisters of battle (drugged to the eyeballs with a hyper-aphrodisiac to make them compliant) and had a kegger on the steps of the Golden Throne. Culminating with an orgy between the Sisters and the Orks (very messy, only ended when the Custodes killed the orks – The Sisters were already long dead by that point.)
She vanished without getting caught, but not before putting clown makeup and a fez on the Emperor and tattooing her name on his ass.
Hijacked a Lamenters Battle Barge, when the crew and marines aboard it awoke, they found they had been tied to the walls of the offices of the High Lords of Terra, wearing bunny suits.
Took the stolen ship traveled straight into the Eye of Terror, heading to the Realm of Chaos, where she crashed the Battle Barge into the towers of Slaanesh, leaping out of the wreckage she challenged all the Greater Daemon of she who thirst to single combat.
Ended with the Keeper of Secrets being wedgied, tarred and feathered.
Proceeded to the forests of Nurgle - Got into an armpit fart contest with a Great Unclean One; defeated it.
Pissed off a Daemon Prince M’kar the Reborn, pursued by him and his legions she escaped the Eye of Terror using ancient Harlequin technology – creating a portal that led to a planet called Acralem, where she slipped into the Webway.
Is rumoured to have smoked pot with the High Lords of Terra.
Is rumoured to be the High Lords of Terras pot dealer.
Has made love to Saint Celestine in a public bathroom.
Reprogrammed a tomb world of Necrons into butlers that refer to everyone as ‘Wesley’.
Has had Tea and Crumpets with a Norn Queen.


The said - even with all that, it's still probably less ridiculous than the fluff for Kaldor Draigo.

If anyone can think of any other insane, brilliant things for her to have done, let me know.

Okay, she sounds reasonable... but I don't get the lack of stats. The others you have produced had been fully finished... is this a WIP?

I propose WS 9 BS 9 S 3 T6 W6 I9 A8 Ld10 SV N/A.

I think she also needs unique weapons, because you've clearly cone for something that is a league apart from others, and needs respect for that. I think the Space Wolves have hammers and stuff, so maybe she stole one and modified it? I have yet to work out the stats of it, but the hammer throws lightning when you swing it about in the direction of the enemy, and if she bashes it onto the floor, all enemies in a... I don't know, 5 metres - radius get thrown aside. And all attacks happen regardless of whatever armour they have.

In her right hand, she has a special sword, which she got by going to various planets, to find parts of it. This Sword was broken up by the Old Ones, and she has managed to find the parts, and put them together again. It wields energy that can penetrate any armour, regardless of saves, and causes 3 Wounds her hit.

As for Special Rules... A League Apart, Know No Fear, Lethal Wedgie, Power From Pain, Independent Character, Riposte, Mistress of Pot, The Penetrating Blade, Quicksilver Dodge, Eternal Warrior, Fearless, Know No Fear, Liberated Sexuality, Darting Strike, Master Tactician, Fleet, Night Vision, Contraband, Bunny Suit Dresser, Move Through Cover, Stealth, Hit And Run, Expert Tea Maker, Invulnerable Save, Precognisant, Darting Strike.

She needs to have an equivalent of an Archon's Court. I feel that one is a Sister of Battle, a Necron Butler, An Ork Nob called by her "Pancakes," and a Purple armoured Space Marine called Boris.

I honestly feel she could be the Mae Young of Warhammer 40K.

Thoughts on my contributiuons, anyone?

Point of interest, I have read about Kaldor Draigo. I consider him the Samuel Haight of Warhammer 40K...

I also think she might have managed to get to Gallifrey, steal a TARDIS, and had a way-hey moment with Lara Croft. And Dopplehoe. At the same time. And Winston was fuilming it all, so that the video could sell millions, thus fund Persephone's Pot dealing empire...

She did it anyway, to prove she is a total Badass. Oh, and her Necron butler has taken lessons from Kryten, and has declared his name is Horatio...

Oh, and I've just read a LOT more background to Kaldor. I have to ask (and probably GW directly).... Is this for real? And did they do this seriously, or as a joke? (Please tell me it was an April Fools or something...)

Still, he makes the case solid for my Praetorean Guard being given a Space Marine Drop Pod... They are hybrids, and will have access to Imperium stuff. And I was thinking about altering it, so it would be identifiable for my army. Hell, even having Jedi in my army/culture's background is seeming perfectly tame...

Persephone, Queen of the Damned
Fluff (read it, it's long but it's worth it. )
Spoiler:
Persephone - Queen of the Damned

Persephone is the bastard daughter of Asdrubael Vect and a Mandrake Queen (for arguments sake, we're assuming that Mandrakes have Queens ok, he was young, it was a long night, there were a LOT of drugs involved, mistakes were made and Mandrake Queens got pregnant OK.) She has been enhanced by Urien Rakarth himself, bequeathed with advanced powers of regeneration, stealth and stamina and further tweaking the beauty of her obsidian skin to new heights.

She flies through the heavens in a heavily modified Dark Eldar battleship, incorporating Eldar, Harlequin, and Necron technologies that she’s acquired along her travels. Her entire life is dedicated to elegant displays of excess and avarice, as well as causing as much mischief and mayhem as possible – often setting plans in motion that will take decades to come to fruition simply to piss someone off.

Little is known about her overall, but her legendary exploits are said to include acts such as:
- She was selected by the Harlequins to join the troupe (it was a mistake, turns out there were two Dark Eldar half-mandrakes called Persephone, they were meant to get the other one.) She joined them for a laugh, thinking 2 guys in outfits like that must be on some AMAZING drugs. Left when she realised there was way less space-coke, sex and wanton murder than she was used to. Stole a selection of their rarer gear and infected the ‘quin washing system with the hyper-toxin equivalent of Itching Powder, raping every member of the Troupe that tried to stop her on the way out.

- She had a brief fling with a high standing Necron Lord (all those attachments oh my!). Didn’t end well when he decided he was past that phase. They never did manage to remove his arm from his backside. Stole his robotic junk and incorporated it into the Warscythe he had gifted her.

- She once seduced a Grey Night Captain.
And his bodyguard.
And 15 Jokaero.
At the same time.

- Persephone once hijacked a Lamenters Battle Barge, slipping onto it through the shadows and using a potent sleeping gas she dropped into the air system. When the various crew and marines from aboard it awoke, they found they had been tied to the walls of the Offices of the High Lords of Terra, wearing Bunny Suits.
She took the stolen ship and traveled at high speed into the Eye of Terror, heading directly to the Realm of Chaos, where she crashed the Battle Barge straight into the towers of Slaanesh.
Leaping out of the wreckage she challenged the chosen herald of She who thirst to single combat.
Ended with the Keeper of Secrets being wedgied, tarred and feathered, then thrown into a giant vat of pudding. She then proceeded to steal Slaanesh’s personal stash of drugs from a chamber revealed in the crash.

- She proceeded to the forests of Nurgle and got into an armpit fart contest with a Great Unclean One; defeated it. While travelling through the lands of Chaos, Persephone pissed off a Daemon Prince known as M’kar the Reborn, and pursued by him and his legions she decided it was time to leave, escaping the Eye of Terror using ancient Harlequin technology – opening a portal that led to a planet called Acralem, where she slipped into the Webway.

- She is rumoured to have smoked pot with the High Lords of Terra and to be the High Lords of Terras dealer.
Is also rumoured to be the Doom Riders dealer.

- Persephone once opened a portal into the Emperors palace, leading a dozen Orks, two dozen humans from one of the most decadent hive worlds and 4 Sisters of Battle (drugged to the eyeballs with a hyper-aphrodisiac to make them compliant of course) and had an insane Kegger on the steps of the Golden Throne itself.
This culminated with an orgy between the Sisters and the Orks (it was very messy and only ended when the Custodes appeared to kill the Orks – The Sisters were already long dead by that point.)
She vanished the way she came avoiding caught, but not before decorating the Emperor with clown makeup and a fez, then tattooing her name on his ass.

- Through careful use of mind altering drugs, Persephone is directly responsible for the creation of the Angry Marines.

- Using her Mandrake Heritage, Persephone whispered into the mind of the captain of the Grey Knights 4th Brotherhood as it headed to Van Horne. The blood of the Order of the Ebon Chalice in fact had no effect, due to their resistance coming from their living faith and would have been better served in the Sisters bodies.

- It has been said that she’s made love to Saint Celestine in a public bathroom.

- She stumbled upon then reprogrammed an entire Tomb World of Necrons into butlers that refer to everyone as ‘Wesley’ (no one knows why).

- She has had Tea and Crumpets with a Norn Queen. Shortly after this the Tyranid Hive Fleet Kraken moved through the Eastern Fringe, threatening the Tau. Vect received a message saying ‘Happy Birthday – Persephone’ with coordinates to a Tau world about to fall under attack.


Stats!
Spoiler:

She rides the Occam like a surfboard.

I will be making her as soon as I can.
She'll be using Lelith Hesprax as a base, and I've already started working on aquiring the bits for her.
The biggest obstacles going to be the Occam. I need a second Razorwing and then 3-4 more Dissintegrators from raiders / ravagers, another Razorwing Lance (though I can prolly get away with a standard one). It'll be magnetised so I can run it as a standard Razorwing, but it's still another like... £25-30.

I've exalted the post. She needs more fluff, she really does...

Still brilliant, mind you. :@)

That would be an ecumenical matter...

As for the new paints, I find it interested the new 40k starter set is how to paint dark angles. Gives atleast some credit to the dark angles part of the rumored Dark Angles Vs. Chaos Starter set rumors.
