Pretty sure when my older brother won a 3rd edition box back when i was like 9 or 10.... I managed to sneak the Dark Eldar for myself, and over the following years via 2nd hand and a few new models I'd built up a collection... they were/are the true villains. They gives 0 :cusss about anyone else! Honestly I LOVE the new models, and would love to replace my entire army with new, but financially it aint going to happen. What I will do is strip them all down and repaint them, bring them back to the glory days!

 

I have something along the lines of (Old models) 4 Raiders, 2 ravagers, 1 talos, 10 jetbikes, around 60 warriors, 7-8 Incubi, 10 wyches, couple of old characters, Drazhar/archon/Dracon/Urien Rak. Recently I decided to grab a Venom, Razorwing and box of scourges + mandrakes, because I loved the models so much!

I'll be honest here. I mostly got into dark eldar because of Raging Heroes' lust elf and void elf miniature lines. This way I can build an entire army of half naked elf girls.

I wish some of GW's wyches had options to be like that.

I started Dark Eldar with the 5th Edtion rework. Giftmas dropped and so did a shiny new army for me.

 

They were another evil army for me to play (at the time balancing out my good/evil ratio) and were very different to my existing armies (Space Marines, Chaos Marines, Daemonhunters).

 

I originally went pure Kabalite for my army, but eventually I added a unit of Mandrakes, Reavers and 15 Hellions (as a 5-man and 10-man squad).

No wytches and no Coven units.
