Dark Eldar Sneak Preview

Da sich der Frank gerade beschwert hat das ich ihn erst mit halbnackten Verrückten locke und dann Käfer auspacke gibt es hier (ein wenig nach unten Scrollen) bereits ein paar Bilder aus der 2ten Tranche (Mandraks, Wyvern, Urien und Hellions) sowie folgende Gerüchte, zusammengesucht von Dakka Dakka und Warseer.Über die Glaubwürdigkeit müsst ihr euch selbst gedanken machen, mein Fazit steht unten!

Lelith bekommt nach letzten Meldungen KG9 und 4 Attacken sowie eine Sonderregel welche ihr +1 Attacke für jeden Punkt differenz beim Kampfgeschick gibt (natürlich mit einer Energiewaffe). Dafür kostet sie aber auch in etwa so viel wie ein Schwarmtyrant!

Weiters sind noch ein paar Goodies aus der Ausrüstungssektion durchgesickert bzw als Gerücht verfügbar. So soll es ein Clone Field geben, welches W3 Attacken gegen den Träger in jeder Nahkampfphase verhindert, ausgesucht von selbigen. Weiters eine Psiwaffe, das Huskblade, welches für jede verursachte Wunde instant death bringt-unabhängig vom Wiederstand und ohne Psitest. Nice one sag ich da*g*

Ebenso parat hab ich die HQ- und Unterstützungsauswahlen, welche ich aber nicht übersetzen werde:) Lest selbst (und freut euch auf den Mann,der Lukas das Herz raus riss^^):

HEADQUARTERS

Asdrubal Vect
Even more expensive but hard hitting , costing about as much as Mephiston (Dais not compulsory).
Dais is AV 13 13 13 with three Dark Lances. He seizes the initiative on a 4+.

Lady Malys
His Ex-Wife.
Immune to psychic powers and passes this ability onto any unit she joins.

Lelith Hesperax
4++ save, 3++ in combat. S3. Her hair counts as a shardnet + impaler. Her knives are power weapons. She doesn't use combat drugs, as she is skilled enough With Weapon Skill 9 and four attacks which ignore armour saves, plus an extra one for each point her weapon skill is higher than her foe's, Lelith can murder entire squads.

Drazhar
Eternal Warrior and rules/stats similar to Phoenix Lords.

Urien Rakarth
Master Haemunculus.
Gives out d3 free pain tokens at the start of the game, which must go to wrack or grotesque units,
also regains a wound at the start of each of his turns as his flesh re-knits itself.
He can make the small constructs troops, and he can give grotesques S6 instead of their usual S5 for 5 points each.

Kheradruakh, the Decapitator
mandrake champion, still with 4 arms.
Always starts in reserve, player can place him anywhere without a roll but at least 1" or 2" away from enemy units.

Duke Sliscus the Serpent
a corsair captain- nasty counterpart to Yriel who isn't that great a fighter but gives bonuses to the rest of your army.
Concept wise he is David Bowie in space, a really glam rocker dude.
Can confer 3+ Poisoned onto one unit's shooting attacks. Also, he is the Dark Eldar character who tore out Lukas The Trickster's heart.

Baron Sathonyx
has a skyboard

Archon
WS7, BS7, +1 BS, +1WS, +1A, +1LD compared to previous edition, can take Blaster (18“ range).
If he kills an enemy MC/SC in close combat, he doubles his Strength to 6. If he kills another one, he doubles his Strength to 10.
Can have bodyguard retinue called 'Court of the Archon' which is a retinue like an inquisitors.
The Court Of The Archon is the Archon's new bodyguard option. It is somewhat inspired by Greek mythology. Options include a retinue member which grants 2+ Poisoned to the entire retinue. This option is unbelievably cheap for what it does. Other options include Ur-Ghuls (which had FNP) and Medusae (which have an 'eye laser' ranged attack).
He can take different numbers of 4 different types of guards. ie. he can take some of one type and a few of another etc. (I would recommend keeping it down to 10 members so they can ride in the archon's pimpin' raider). One is a big bug - 3 wound tank monster, one is a 4 armed shooty guard, one is a general cc one, and another is a retinue member that grants the entire retinue poison 2+ CC attacks.
To make things a bit difficult, ruleswise it is not a retinue, as the Archon can be singled out in a cc attack.

Haemunculus
FNP

Haemunculus Ancient
(quite different from Haemunculus)


HEAVY SUPPORT

Ravager
Fast, skimmer, open-topped, AV 11 11 10, can fire all three dark lances at cruising speed

Talos
In a standard and lighter version. Both similar size, no model in the near future. Lighter version is called Cronos or Parasite (?). When the Cronos kills a model with one of its weapons, it generates a pain token up to one per weapon per turn. You may chose to with nearby unit it goes.

Cronos
Weaker but cheaper Talos.
When it kills a model with one of it weapons you may choose a unit to add a Pain Point to. You can only get 1 point per weapon per Turn (3 max per turn)
Has 2 ranged weapons

Razorwing Fighter
Seem to be Skimmer, not flyers as previously said.They have aerial assault rules that mean they can move and fire all their weapons, they can also take a range of missiles. One of them: Implosion missiles, small blast, all models touched by it take a characteristics test on their wounds and if they fail it they instantly die. They can purchase up to four missiles of any of the following types and may be a mix of them. There are neurotoxin ones, imploding ones, soul stealing ones or something, and good old fashioned explosives.

Voidraven Bomber
Seem to be Skimmer, not flyers as previously said. It is armour 11 with duel strength 9 Ap 2 dark lances, can move 36 inches, fire all weapons when moving 12, can drop a strength 8 bomb along its flight path. Costs as much as Rhino plus Ravager.

Meine Meinung:klingt ganz propper, das Archon gefolge erscheint mir in der aktuellen kinderfreundlichen Edition ein wenig seltsam, ebenso kann ich den Bomber bzw den Fighter nicht ganz glauben, klingt mehr nach FW Modellen, vorallem die Implosion Missiles kann ich mir kaum vorstellen. Andererseits haben wir das vor Lash, der Vendetta und dem Tervigon auch gesagt^^
Ich glaub das trotzdem alles erst dann wenn ich den Codex in der Hand halte:)

  3. Habe eh jetzt schon Angst :-) Das einzige was mich tröstet ist, wenn die jetztigen Armeen schon dermassen grausam sind, WAS wird dann erst mit den Eldarn in 1-2 Jahren passieren *hehe*
