My “first Dark Eldar army list” includes 4 Raiders with Dark Lances. I wanted to unite the Raiders with the Infantry units I have made, so I constructed the crew on 2 Raiders with standard Kabalite armour and 2 with Kabalite/Wych armour. The latter could of course be used transporting Kabalite Warriors, but theme well with both my Wych units and Trueborn Units.
Painting Raiders takes a lot longer time than I had planned. The metal/lining colour scheme was a whole other undertaking on a larger model. In addition the process also meant painting 8 infantry models.
Filled with hate, rage, and the need to feed on others pain and fear, I recon the Dark Eldar will start mutilating and torturing as soon as possible (not waiting until they return to Commorragh after a raid). I therefore implemented elements of mutilated bodies and severed heads on the Raider decks. These could of course also represent “Grisly trophies”. So how did the Raiders turn out?
