Back in the old days (you remember the ones, when we hadnt had a DE update for a decade) I made (like many did) several new units / updates to the old DE Codex.

I've now been working through updating those (and adding more) to the latest edition and have decided to put each unit up for review, starting with:
Note - In Models: * means unique (usually due to being a special character), in regards to saves * means Invulnerable.

The BG is background of how I initially thought of it and/or fluff. Help with making it more... true as it were appreciated.

Oh - and when commenting please say what you're commenting on.

Overall in my extended codex I have:
Spoiler:
HQ
Eh'khas-haedrine, Lord of Broken Spires
- Deranged archon with a penchant for alien mercs and a severe distrust of his own kind.
Eth Olrion Reaver Champion
- The fastest, most skilled reaver flying.
Barney, Elder Warp Beast
- A warp beast as ancient as Vect himself, so old that he's developed a wicked inteligence.
Fabius Bile
- The Chaos version of Mengela, learnt under Haemonculi in the dark city, and occasionally tags along on slave raids.
Fabius Bile's Enhanced Warriors
- Biles toys.
Scourge Luminate
- High ranking Scourge leader.
Arena Grand Champion
- High ranking Reaver leader. Initial idea by Gaovinni.

ELITES
Wrack Wærlogas
- Specialist weapon teams of Wracks.
Commorite Blue Suns
- From a spaceborn Haemonculi fleet from within the Thaxar Rift, they capture and torture enemy psykers, then take their toys into battle.
Master of Shards
- Stolen and broken, the Haemonculi feed Eldar Soul Stones to a captured and perverted Avatar of Khaine.
Shadowbanes
- Mandrakes that were foolish enough to cross a Haemonculi and paid the price of becoming a Grotesque.
Samarkand Warp Kine
- Dark Eldar whos very flesh is laced with both warpstuff and the material of the webway.
Harlequin Solitaire
- The sould-damned harlequin warriors.
The Laughing God
- The living god of the Harlequins, deigning to dance through a battlefield.

TROOPS
Tenkians
- Hard hitting short-range troops. A middle ground between Kabalite Warriors and Wyches.

FAST ATTACK
Dark Eldar Soul Flayers
- Souls of Dead children in little armoured engines with a gun.
Grotesque Assault Squad
- What happens if you put a pair of grots in a venom, or 3-4 in a raider then throw them at the enemy. Well, who knows, but this is basically an excuse to have 3 more squads of grots flying around.
Felis Panthera Flesh Hound
- A Haemonculi pet, huge and terrifying, like a warp beast the size of a warhound.

DEDICATED TRANSPORTS
Talemere Pain Chariot
- Haem equivalent of a Venom. Has liquifier guns instead of splinter cannons and stuff.

HEAVY SUPPORT
The Toaster of Lost Souls Pain Engine
- It's a Talos special character. That's a toaster. It makes toast and eats souls.
The Kettle of Eternal Suffering
- It's a Cronos special character. That's a Kettle. That's pretty much it.
Flesh Hulks
- Giant tank-busting Grotesques.
Magnatesque
- A Gargantuan Creature style Grotesque.
Magna Toaster of Damnation, Pain Chamber
- Think if a Talos and a Baneblade had a lovechild.. then that lovechild had a bastard son with a toaster. Gargantuan Creature with 5 or so weapon mounts and a transport cap.
Lancer
- A slightly beefier Raider / Venom cross. Assault Transport.


Front page - because why not.
Spoiler:



Eh'khas-haedrine, Lord of Broken Spires (Under Review)
Spoiler:

Model(s):
None At this time, nor frankly any planned anytime soon.


Barney, Elder Warp Beast (Complete)
Spoiler:

BG: Barney and Friends are ancient beasts of the warp, the personal mount of those who can somehow aquire their services.
Also - He's a purple dinosaur.

Models:


Fabius Bile / Fabius Bile's Enhanced Warriors (Complete)
Spoiler:

BG: In the Dark Eldar codex it says that Bile studied under the Haemonculi in years gone by, and going by both DE and Biles fluff it wasnt unreasonable to think that good old Fabius would tag along with the Haemonculi or their allies from time to time - and this was the result.

Model(s):
Working on acquiring (making low ball bids on Ebay for a Bile and 10 CSMs, but if anyone wants to give me Fabius + 10 marines w/ 2 flamers / sell me for like.. £10-12 total that works too - really poorly painted models is perfectly fine. ).


Commorite Blue Suns (Under Review)
Spoiler:

BG: Born of the old saying that DE view those who use psychic powers as amusing playthings and that any unlucky enough to be a psyker in Commoragh were toys to them, and that on occasion they would take their toys with them.
Slightly harder to justify these days, but I figure that they would be kept on roving raider ships that do not enter the dark city? Iunno help on that would be appreciated..

Model(s):
Working on acquiring. Intend to use a mix of WE Dryads (for handlers), VC Crypt Ghouls for husks and Classic DE Warriors for Slave Guard (have).


Master of Shards (WIP)
Spoiler:

Model(s):
Avatar on order (£5 on ebay for a metal avatar ), will start conversion work shortly after it arrives, Will use more WE Dryads out of the box I get to make various Haemonculi goodies.


Shadowbanes (Under Review)
Spoiler:

BG: It is said one of the most foolish things to do in Commoragh is cross a Haemonculi, and that one of the worse punishments exacted upon their victims is to be turned into a shambling Grotesque. Well - what happens if a Mandrake happens to encur the wrath of the fleshworkers? The result - Shadowbanes

Model(s):
Will be WE Dryads. I'm tempted to convert some of my Grotesques over to these, I tend only to use 4 Grots of 10 anyway, and these can so easily be used as regular grotesques regardless.. so these may be soon.


Samarkand Warp Kine (Under Review)
Spoiler:

BG: Sometimes, inhabitants of the dark city are caught in an interesting phenomenon, caught in cracks in the webway unable to escape their flesh becomes laced with a mix of the material that forms the webway and warpstuff, eventually the crack widens and those that don't fall into oblivion crawl their way back, inexplicably drawn to a single area in the wastelands, the damned tower of Samarkand where all warpkine make their home.
Desperate Archons will occasionally hire out the services of these peculiar and unpredictable wretches, using them to bolster their lines when their resources are stretched thin.

Model(s):
Models on order (classic Mandrakes), will start conversion work shortly after they arrive.


Harlequin Solitaire (Under Review)
Spoiler:

BG: It's a harlequin Solitaire. That's all there is to it.

Model(s): Working on acquiring. Want to use the Harlequin w/ a Fusion Blaster and a Chainsword as a base for this.


The Laughing God (WIP)
Spoiler:

BG:

Model(s):
Working on acquiring. Going to be using a Necron Deciever for it, but the trick is going to be getting one.

Removing two of the most competitive choices in the Codex so you can take a pretty mediocre unit that you would never take in a casual level, let alone anything competitive is a horrible idea. Good fluff, but just a bad idea.

Removing 2 of the most competitive choices in the codex? Do you mean denying the use of kabalite warriors and trueborn?

And yes - it's meant to be a fluffy, amusing idea, several of my extended units are more for colour and casual play than for competitive anything.

But any comments on the balance / points etc is appreciated

Personally, I like the idea of the Solitaire. Not sure about the points cost. It seams in the profile the Solitaire has a 4+ inv. all the time and a 2+ in cc, but the wargear description says its a 4+/3+. Might want to clarify.

Also, the Harlequin's Kiss isn't a power weapon right? If it's not, then I suppose points are ok. It's just kinda scary to see such a good WS with a potential of 11 attacks on the charge. If it is a power weapon, I might bump the cost up considerably. Considering the fluff for a Solitaire, I would say it should have a pretty scary cc weapon. Perhaps a poisoned (3+) harlequins kiss that is rending on a 5+ roll to wound instead of only a 6?

Please comment on my Inquisitor and his rules!

Harlequins kiss isnt a power weapon no, and it is meant to be a 2+ inv in close combat yes..

And maybe I'll make it rending on a 5+ too?

I would. The Solitaire needs to be scary good in cc. The fluff has it that people are scared to even touch the guy for fear of what horrible fate might await them, and that they would be better off killing themselves. A potential 11 attacks are kinda cool, but they are only str 3 and even with a great WS, you're typically always going to hit on 3+. I'd do something to make the solitair's weapon a little more scary. Making it rend on 5+ seems reasonable to me.

Updated the Harlequin Solitaire, Added Master of Shards and Laughing God squads.

BG: "Deep in the heart of every craftworld lies a single sealed wraithbone chamber. Inside, upon a smouldering throne, sits an Avatar of the Bloody-Handed God - a terrifying statue of immobile iron. His slitted eyes reveal an empty darkness as if his whole body were a hollow metal shell.
As the craftworld prepares for war the psychically receptive chamber pulses with the battle-lust of the Eldar. In response, the Avatar begins to glow as the heat of his fiery blood is kindled, Molten iron boils through his vein, so that he crackles and hisses like a furnace"

Stolen from deep within the heart of a long dead craftworld, aboard a mighty vessel floating within the Thaxar Rift lies a single broken wraitbone chamber. Inside upon a throne of nightmarish instruments, sits a grotesque perversion of the Avatar of the Bloody-Handed God - a sickening statue of immobile iron, bound in chains. His wide eyes and jagged scream reveal a hollow darkness full of glittering crystal slivers.

As the Master of Shards prepares for war, the chamber pulses with the screams of tortured Eldar slaves. In response the shattered crystal begins to glow as the suffering resonates against long dead kin, one by one 9 of the children of the Craftworld are sacrificed, their Soulstone deftly removed and shattered into the abominations mouth. As each stones power is added to the last the Avatars body begins to burn a dirty red, and with the addition of the 9th eldars stolen life-force red-blue flame erupts from the once great warrior-god, its fiery blood forced to flow and tinged with suffering as it struggles against its chains.

Through arcane technologies and Haemonculi cunning the stolen god is brought to heel, bound and broken and forced against its will to destroy its own, the perverse aproximation of the Eldar God is forced ever forward.

So on a thought, and a crazy idea:
Dark Eldar Soul Flayers (Under Review)

He's not finished yet.

Also it's going to be his special rules that make him nasty.

The Commedia are a pair of sentient power rapiers, each giving nasty effects each turn and he's going to have a... 'melee ranged attack'. which combined with hitandrun would pretty much allow it to assault twice in a turn, once with a good chance of no return hits (the shooting phase assault will be along the lines of moves into assault, attacks, the assaulted squad only gets to return if it passes a ld test, then only on 6's).

It's focusing on speed and skill over straight power :3

Eth Olrion Reaver Champion (WIP)
Spoiler:

It's a WIP points and gear / stats still in the air, the idea being he ascended through the reaver ranks, got his razorwing, made his way to the pinacle, but prefered the up-close-and-personal approach of the jetbike, so created a custom reaver around a Razorwwing engine (I intend to make the model out of a Venom chasis)

Skymaster special rule I'm unsure what it'll do yet. Probably a simple boost to reavers like make them fearless within X inches or something.

Tricky thing giving your Reaver Champion Night Fields and Flicker Fields. I'm not sure how to feel about it. On one hand, Its understandable that he should have some benifits like the ones gained from thos especific rules. On the other hand, they are designated Vehicle upgrades. As well, If he joins with a Troop of Reavers, how would that work?

I honestly like what you've developed here. That is the only unit I questioned. Everything else, I would love to see on my Table.

In regards to the shadowfield on Olrion, I'd have thought it should confer its 6" reduction to the squad he joins., though I could feasibly drop the shadowfield and leave it at flickers.

Flickerfield will simply give Olrion a 5+ invun save.

And the reason he has them is he's technically riding a custom built Venom with Razorwing engines as a jetbike, which is why he got those, a missile and had space for both caltrops and a grav talon.

There's still yet more I need to finish typing up / copy over from the excel sheet to the PDF then from the partdone PDF to here... then after it all there'll be a full PDF codex too.
Overall I have:

So, today I realised I hadn't actualy done a full blown hex rifleman squad yet... so I figured - let's do this.

So, A weapon idea I've had in my notebook for a while is this:
Weapon: Soul Flayer Cannon
Range- X*, Str-X*, AP-N/A, Type-Assault 1, Wraithbone Ammunition.
Special Rules:
When fired the Soul Flayer Cannon always hits the nearest visible enemy model in LOS of the wielder.
The Soul Flayer Cannon always wounds on a 4+ regardless and glances vehicles on a 6+ regardless of armour value.

Wraithbone Ammunition:
Firing shells made of tortured wraithbone, inhabited by the broken and insane souls of captured eldar, the Soul Flayer Cannons shells actively seek out the nearest prey, and keep going as long as they are able.
Each time a successful hit is made by the Soul Flayer, roll a D6, on a 4+ an additional hit is made against the next nearest model.
Continue assigning hits until you fail a to-hit roll or every enemy model has been hit once.

My personal secret lair

I don't know if you meant nearest enemy unit instead of enemy model with the cannon but either way I think it should be the nearest unit and if it scores additional hits they cannot hit another unit so all the cannon will be hitting is a single squad. Just to prevent the gun from being able to potentially wipe out the whole enemy force with a single shot.

I meant model, so that if by some fluke you managed to get more than the average 2-3 4+'s in a row, it could feasibly jump further.

Also, being AP nothing it's not likely to do much in the way of damage.

Though thinking on it, could make first hit 2+, second hit 3+, 3rd 4+, 4th 5+, and each successive 6+, meaning it has a good chance of 2-3 hits, a fair chance of 4-5, and a slim chance of more?

Sounds viable but I still think it should be limited to hit one unit though.

How about:

Weapon: Soul Flayer Cannon
Range- 36"*, Str-X*, AP-N/A, Type-Assault 3, Wraithbone Ammunition.
Special Rules:
The Soul Flayer fires at +1 BS if the target is the nearest enemy unit to the wielder.
The Soul Flayer Cannon always wounds on a 4+ regardless and glances vehicles on a 6+ regardless of armour value.

Wraithbone Ammunition:
Firing shells made of tortured wraithbone, inhabited by the broken and insane souls of captured eldar, the Soul Flayer Cannons shells actively seek out the nearest prey, and keep going as long as they are able.
Each time a successful hit is made by the Soul Flayer, roll a D6, on a 4+ it scores an additional hit.

Is this in PDF form? Staring at the screen is getting to me, and I'd rather print stuff up to compare to my Codex...

But is seems to be potentially cool. The idea of a monster called Barney made me laugh.

That would be an ecumenical matter...

GENERATION 9: The first time you see this, copy and paste it into your sig and add 1 to the number after generation. Consider it a social experiment.

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.

It will be in PDF, but till I bother finishing it, it's just images and text for review.

Maybe I'll finish it this week, I've got free time.

I had my own codex mod in pdf a while ago. Wonder if I can still find it.

Tonight I've decided I'm going to work on and complete the Soul Flayer entry.

The idea of 20 tiny skimmers slamming into a vehicle amuses me.
