I had never really liked Dark Eldar thanks to an annoying acquaintance being the only person I knew to play them, but with Ynnari tying them every closer to my Craftworlders, I felt I had to take a look and found myself liking Dark Eldar.
I took another step in my Corsairs project, and it turns out my original idea for the basing did not really work out either.
As I think I have said before, I have been working on making a force of Corsairs using Dark Eldar models. With GW’s decision that Corsairs will not be included in Ynnari, I decided to model everything in a way that could see them fielded as either Dark Eldar or Corsairs depending on what rules set I wanted to go with. (My FLGS loathes Forgeworld stuff, so having models based on only being Corsairs is not a good idea.) It was a little bit of mental gynmastics, but it worked out pretty well. The one unintended side-effect this has brought about, of course, is my new fascination with Dark Eldar.
To finish this whole thing up, let’s take a look at some of the new rules for our Eldar – I mean Aeldari (rolls eyes) – models.
Since I am going to talk about rules again, here is the link to the Gathering Storm II: Fracture of Biel-Tan Errata/FAQ. Hopefully GW will come to their senses and put this with the rest of their errata on their store website soon.
Anyway, I am going to jump right in here.
