|Elegant but Deadly Silhouette|
So one of my projects that I started as a learning process is coming a little closer to completion. My Dark Eldar Flyer, which was aiming to be a Raven substitute, but that may change. The IA Apocalypse 2nd Edition brought the Raven back to the potential of usability for me. They were 205 pts for one twin linked dark lance shot, and four Str 4 AP 5 shots, it came down to 125 and changed four bolter shots for ten poison 4+ shots. It seemed right where it should be compared to the Eldar Nightwing. As of the Aeronautica book however, it's back up to 205 pts, with the same lance shot, and poison shots and a rule that doesn't seem to exist. Add the flicker field to it, and it costs as much as the Tantalus?
AV 10 2 Hull Points, 1 lance, 10 poison shot flyer = AV 12 4 HP 16 transport, 12 Str 5 AP 2 shots?
I may just mount another gun in the nose vanes, and run it as a 'counts as' Nightwing with Eldar Allies unless an Errata comes out. Anyhow enough ranting.
