A New Darkness Arises

Shrill screams pierced the eternal night. Frigid winds blew, forming icicles on crooked iron spires. The scent of blood lay heavy in the air. The wyches were getting restless, and the death-screams of wretched slaves were testament to this. The Morríghan savored the moment, licking her blood-red lips. Soon her covens would be strong enough to take their rightful place among the cruel Commorragh elite. Soon, very soon…

I started thinking about a new army a short while back, and after a rather arduous process of elimination came to the conclusion that there really is only one choice for me… the Dark Eldar. I plan on starting out with a small army list, get those painted, play a few games, and try to learn the inns and outs of the Dark Eldar army. I also plan on staying away from internet forums full of know-it-all’s, and instead try and discover what makes the Dark Eldar tick on my own, through the time-tested method of trial and error.

This much I know so far: There are going to be a lot of Wyches. There won’t be too many Raiders. I will only use models I actually like. The colour scheme will be cold and grim.

Here’s what I plan to start with:

Cult of the Frigid Razor
HQ
The Morríghan (Succubus)
Agoniser, Haywire Grenades

The Crone Mothers (2 Haemonculi)
2x Liquifier Gun

Troops
Ceridwen’s coven (10 Wyches)
Hecatrix, Power Weapon, Blast Pistol, Haywire Grenades

Blodeuwedd’s coven (10 Wyches)
Hecatrix, Power Weapon, Blast Pistol, Haywire Grenades

Fast Attack
The Skyrazors (3 Reavers)
Heat Lance, Arena Champion, Power Weapon

Total 618
