Dark Eldar Raider Disintigrator Cannons

Just a quick one for you.

During this last year I have built several Coven units.

Since many of the Coven units are geared for close combat, it’s not a default choice any longer to by the Dark Lance upgrade for my Raiders. Hence, I wanted the option to field them with the stock Disintegrator Cannons. Jørn helped my getting the gun mounts (THX), and I was happy to find that the Wrack kits I had included options to build Raider and Venom crews.   

Two of my Raiders now have the options to field a Wrack gunner with Disintegrator Cannons.

What next? Some additional models for my Eldar Corsairs (moping up the extras…)

Dark Eldar Hellions

When the previous edition of the Dark Eldar Codex where realised, I bought almost all of the new models (kits) - including Hellions. But eventually I decided to go with a shooty MSU list, and traded them in for other models. Now, 4 years later, during the expansion of my Dark Eldar army, I decided on revisit units I had previously discarded.

The amount of options you have when building Hellion’s, and the narrative behind this unit, it just awesome. And of course I had to ad some parts making them a little more macabre. In my opinion, the Dark Eldar models surpass almost all other army’s in the GW range.  And although many of the models are a little fiddly to build, and are full of small parts and details that makes it challenging (for my anyway) to paint, it has been a joy to paint these models.

The Best Masters are very similarly to the Hellions, baring typically the helmets. The Beast Master models are Finecast Models and expensive. I therefore decided fore some variety to make them work as both. And since they appearance are close to Wyshes, I went with my traditional painting pallet. Anyway, this is how they turned out.
