So I have been toying with an idea. What if our lord of war was a flier, basically a DE version of a Specter AC 130 gunship, circling the battlefield and providing heavy air support.

Was thinking the loadout could be something like this:
Quad Void Lance (4 shot void lance)
Twin Extended Barrel Dark Scythes (2 36" range Dark Scythes)
Shardstorm Cannon (Basically an assault 20 splinter cannon)

What do you think?


EDIT: Yes it's a lot of firepower, but not excessive compared to some other lords of war.

Sounds pretty awesome. With the state of the universe in the fluff, I don't think it would be too unlikely for Dark Eldar to start fielding some heavy hitters

I still daydream about a possible super heavy grotesque-ish model made by a haemy like urien. Maybe something similar to the skaven abomination. So a big grotesque made of grotesques, something imp knight size. Lol

I guess what you're talking about would be our equivelant of a Marauder Bomber or Marauder Destroyer.
Ultimately I guess, our version of the Eldar Vampire Hunter or Vampire Raider.

As Eldar vehicles that would be a good place to start.

The thought would be, what would its purpose be? What would it need to do on a slave raid?
The most logical thing I see is either a heavy seige engine, something designed to knock down walls, or heavy suppressing fire. Something to knock down opposition for a raid.
I like your ideas, but I'm tempted to suggested dropping the Void Lances in favour of some kind of multiple-shot missile launcher, using Razorwing or Voidraven missiles. SOmething to either punch, or suppress.

I saw it as a platform for eliminating high priority targets. Enemy superheavies, for instance. The shardstorm cannon is indeed there for supression fire.

For its slave raid use, I would possibly say it would be for bringing down even the most fortified positions, as with the events of the gathering storm and chaos on the rise I can see imperial world's bunkering up fairly heavily

With all the tumoilt going on, I don't think our arsenal needs to be entirely slave-raid based. There are countless superweapons possessed by various Kabals (Dark Heart, Dying Sun), why would a big mean bomber fall out of that picture?

The Dias is supposed to be monstrous in size, as described in one of the books I believe. Just the Dais with Vect'd make me very happy indeed!!!

Vect? That's crazy talk! There is no precedent for Vect or the Dais having actual models...

Oh wait...
