What should we call a Dark Eldar army with Harlequins?
And what name works if we have all 3 eldar in one army?

We call Dark Eldar and Eldar "Darkdar"

Dark Eldar + Harlequins = Darklies? Quindar? Darkquins? Other?

Eldar (CWE) + Harlequins = CWquins? Quindar? Other?

Dark Eldar + Eldar + Harlequins = Quindar (again...)? DarkdarQuins? CWdarkquins?  HarleDarkdars? Other?



Any ideas ladies and gents?
What do you think?

I was tempted to vote for Darlies, but it sounds far too much like "darlings"... so no.

I actually like the how "Dark Harlequins" sounds. However, for the sake of making it shorter I'd probably call it Darlequins.

The option which is most similar is "Darkquins", so I'll vote for that.

I would just call an army of two eldar as "MEldar", and this is going to apply to harlies too. It fits well since Harlequins are the most about unity between the eldar than any other eldar faction.

Darlequins. Because insinuating they're little darlings when they spray assault in people's faces is too lulzy not to.

Dark Eldar/Harlequins. Cutesy army names that sound more at home in a tabloid article about a celebrity couple are one of my least favorite parts of the hobby. They universally sound bad.

Since all Eldar are BB anyway, I just call any combination of Eldar, Dark Eldar, Covens, Iyanden, Corsairs, and/or Harlequins just 'Eldar Alliance,' 'Allied Eldar,' or 'Eldar Unification.'

Kabalequins?

Haemonquinus Coven?

Harlecult?

Also, for some reason I can't stop thinking of Harlies plus CWE as Quimdar.

Midnight Sorrow Quins

Midnight Sorrow list - heavy mix of Dark Eldar and Harlequins

The Masque of the Midnight Sorrow are a company of Harlequin Eldar that associate closely with the Dark Eldar. Often seen amid the spires of High Commorragh, their renditions of the tale of The Fall are widely regarded amongst Commorrite high society as the pinnacle of the Harlequin's art, and their every step is perfectly choreographed to evoke the sorrow and terror of that ancient catastrophe. Indeed, the Midnight Sorrow are so committed to their performance that many of their players have, other the centuries, lost their original identities altogether. Now they walk the paths of the Webway as echoes of that terrible age - reminders of an evil so voracious that it still consumes Eldar souls to this day.[1]

Upon the battlefield, the Masque's warrior-acrobats move and fight with the same perfect grave that they display on stage. The Masque's name stems from the eighteenth verse of the third act of the Fall; that infamous scene wherein Cegorach witnesses the darkest time to have befallen his children. Echoing the bleak misery and clashing violence of this scene, the Midnight Sorrow will always endeavor to strike at their foes as the witching hour tolls. They strike suddenly and leave nothing but ruin and misery in their wake

I think the cutesy name heightens the irony of their nature. Like Kurt Russel getting "assaulted" by the Christmas Critters in South Park...
