Hey guys, Andy has moved on to the new Dark Eldar Raider and seems to love this excellent kit.
This is an amazing model…so much so, I’m gonna loot it for my boyz!!!
Hi first i have to say you guys are doing a great job with the website, that really got me into playing warhammer. The new DE models look great but i wouldnt wat to assemble let alone carry them around. Playingwise i dont know, at my gaming club we looked through the dex and most experienced players said they are just c***p. Yeah sure they are beeing a “glasscannon” and whatnot but i think they have really good options with fast vehicles, lances and vect just rocks with 4+ initiative steal if your playing wyvern spam. Now do you guys at BOW rate DE?
I would say that the guys are your club calling them crap because they are looking at them with the mind set of how they play pretty much all the other races in 40k. DE are extremely fragile, which requires a total rethink in how you play the game. Marines for example are very forgiving, you don’t need to think so much about what you do with them (obviously we’re talking relatively here!!!) but once you master the DE (I would personnally say, the hard race in 40k to use) then they are devastating. I got DE first. the learning curve was insane! I then went on to Eldar and do really well with them as they are more forgiving.
this is (or at least was) even more so if you play at 1000pts. those raiders come with dark lances as std. that makes them VERY cheap.
Saying all that, I bet they’ll be loads of DE armies on ebay in a few months time where people just get rolled so much they give up on these guys.
I love the model, although i’m not a fan of what GW does, generally… I also like the instant haircut and clothes-change moment !
2 Dark Eldar 1 Cup? Oh – my – God
I really like this model. I’m not a WH 40k fan but… Yea, this one draw my attention to that game system
I feel exactly the same!
Nice looking model! I can’t wait to see a 3 colours up on it? Maybe? I’m glad that the Dark Eldar were given some more attention by GW as I think they were kinda left behind. I see that a certain Beast of War forgot to take his meds,
great model have some of the old raiders think this is a vast improvement cant wait for the rest of the range
I’m planning on putting wyches in this, get them in combat quick and protect them due to thier awful armour save.
Hmm, hard to put together, I made a stegadon quite well… how hard can it be? XD
I hope there’s plans for 3 colors up DE style! awsome model (bet it was a bugger to put together though) and awsome vid keep them coming guys!!!!!
Yeah, can’t wait “3 colors up” featuring new DE .
Love these models! Mr. Goodwin and the team have excelled themselves. The new raiders are awsome. at least they will look like better wrecks than the old models!!!
There is an assembly guide to a raider on the GW site now, looks useful.
Wow, didnt even notice the hair cut! lol
Love the end of video moments with these videos.
Warren sounded a bit like me at the end of a drunken night there!
“2 Dark Eldar 1 cup”
You so sexy Warren. Me love you long time!
thats one beautiful model love it !!!
Brilliant model. I am looking forward to fielding them with my new DE army. I am not concerned about the AV to much because they are reasonably point wise to treat them as fire and forget. Besides they will not be hit easily with their speed.
I think they were spot on with the new DE. Great model, and great dex. I love the vid. keep them going. I agree that BOW is keeping me in the hobby. Keep up the good work guys.
i like this model, i think im going 2 get one and turn it into a ork looted wagon, just cause i love making random ork convertions of stuff that really coudlnt be converted, like my looted drop pod.
Here’s a question… maybe they’ll be a vid anyway, but can we assume the ravager box has everything you need to make a raider? I think it probably will, the magnets will be coming out!!!
best idea I could come up with for the vehicles when I played DE (back in 4th) was to move your raiders/ ravagers onto one side of the board in a group. Have the bulk move 12 so they can fire the big guns but have one raider drop off it’s bods, then turbo to get a cover save but also have it covering the next raider that can fire to give that cover. then have the next raider back covered by the first shooting one and so on. In theory, this means you can pop transports of enemy infront of you, while getting a cover save back (remember, being on the side should get you out of range of a lot of enemy guns) then sweep round the flank next turn and start getting your combat squads in action. Reavers also work quite well for this as they get the 3+ turbo cover save. also easier to disguise the tactic as they go 36″ now assuming you can cover enough of the raider, so maybe a bigger unit of bikes (which I would take anyway).
Forgotten what I was going to say after being distracted at the end of the video lol
Looks very nice indeedy Still feel the sails are a tad undersized, but is not a problem.
Like the sound of that coolhand if I have understood correctly.
when I saw the plank came out of the side I saw the skif in the desert scene of Star Wars episode 6 “Return of the Jedi” when Luke jump of the plank to free Han Solo….. Lots of ispiration there. But look very nice.
Keep expecting someone to sing on my raider. Great vid. Liked seeing it put together
i am very freaked out my warrens bit at the end ” 2 dark eldar one cup” that thoughts gonna take a long time to go away.But anyway apart from that cool vid. But whats happened to John i haven’t seen him in a vid for ages or has he just regenerated into andy?
