-But not often enough to include them in the book.
I'm guessing they are in the CWE book and since they are our "battle-brothers" we can just barrow theirs. Evil or Very Mad

But which self respecting Archon goes on a raid to spill blood and sow terror and decides that they should bring along the Space Hippies to bring love and rainbows just so they can have a laugh with the death jesters?

Because they make people explode by punching them with tubes while dancing.

I'm hoping we're going to get a dataslate for harlequins (a bit like the officio assassinorum for imperials). If they're going to be a single unit or maybe two/three options I think that's going to be the route they'll go down.

Or to keep this post on-topic. It's not necessarily inconsistent to refer to stuff in the fluff that's not an option in the army list, just annoying! (Like Vect, Malys, and Kheradruakh)

My "favorite" inconsistency is that the absolute smallest vehicle in the codex (venom) is the *only* one that has flicker field. You'd think that single piece of incredibly valuable wargear would be available to the entire fleet.

The bomber even mentions having "extra shielding" to protect it from the bomb going off. Lol. If that bomb scatters back onto te raven it's dead.

It's not a real inconsistency but I love the Sump artefact in the coven supplement. Especially the fact that you can choose to become poison 4+, since the only weapon he can take that doesn't have poison is a mindphase gauntlet. Who, in his right mind, would ever want to pick concussive? On a model without 'nades and only S3?

PS about inconsistency in races winning in the fluff. They only talk about the victories. If any of these stories would be the actual reference, there would only be draws Wink

I have nothing to add, but OP and Agatha had me howling. Good work guys Laughing

I've always thought that the innate sadism, the spiky armour and the lifetime gym memberships mentioned in the fluff all add up to S3 T3, which means that without them Dark Eldar would be around S1 T1 - the stroppy teenagers we all know they really are.
