One of the first things that appealed to me about this new codex was the new addition of Jet Fighters. A long time realm of Forge World, it was a surprise to see a true aerospace fighter in an army codex finally. I was sold and when the model came out and saw how cool it looked I was fired up to start this army finally. I started in this hobby build plastic jet model kits and I always like a good fighter in a game, hence my appeal to Aeronautica Imperialis. Now my Dark Eldar have some aerospace support to lead the speeder army into battle. This is only the wing man of the 2 fighter flight I plan on building for the army, the next one will be more detailed as they will be the flight leader.

Along with Drazhar I put together a squad of Incubi for the army. I needed some more close combat nastiness that I could mount on a venom, and this unit was an effective choice. In addition I have only 4 Incubi, so if Drazhar needs a ride on a venom he can join them and make the unit even more choppy

Let me start off with a recently finished HQ choice, Drazhar! Simply put he is a super ninja crazy character for any DE Army. His rules appealed to me, and I wanted to have at least one good close combat unit in the game besides all the shooting and venom's. I have already used him a few games of the new Zone Mortalis expansion and he is just a lot of fun to see him ninja anyone in his way. While I already have an Archon for an HQ choice this character allows me to use an HQ who can hold his own alone in a battle.

It's been a while since I posted anything about my Dark Eldar experiment but I haven't abandoned it just yet. In fact I have finished a few units in the last few months I plan to post pics of here. I now have a fully painted legal army and I'm working on a few more items in the future as well. So here is a little preview of what I have been up too with my new Dark Eldar army, The Starjammers!
