Well, we all know that the Dark Eldar organise themselves roughly into self-contained factions, being the Kabals, Cults, Covens, Shrines (Incubi) and Gangs (Hellions).

The problem is, what are groups of Reavers called, ever since they split from being members of the Cults, or groups of Scourges, or Mandrakes? My personal suggestion is that we dub a group of Reavers a Syndicate, given both its links with racing as well as crime. As for the other factions... I've currently got no ideas. Any answers/ideas, guys?

Scourges could be a gregation.
(Latin: flock; assemble, gather, gather together)
-as they are a flock of (hurtful, mean) birds.

Mandrakes could be a pack, as they seem wolflike in nature (hunting in packs etc.).

Scourges gather in Eyries, altough whether that's just the name of the place they gather or a name for a group of Scourges isn't clear. Incubi have Shrines or Temples. Reavers are a sect of Wytch Cults so they might not necessarily have a term of their own, altough if they do, Syndicate sounds good. I don't really see Mandarakes having any particular organisation. They seem more likely to eighter be loners or operate in small packs.

Crows in groups are called a Murder... I would call a group of scourges the same.

As for Reavers I don't know.

Ravens in a group are called an Unkindness. That's what I call my Scourges.

I kinda like the Unkindness for Scourges, rather than Murder. It has that right amount of arrogance and sophistication that I imagine the Dark Eldar having. Raider though doesn't really work. It's the name of our main transport, so we can't really double up.

Considering fact that Scourges work as messengers, how about... Messengers?
Here You go Sir, whole clip of death, sign with Your blood!
Also Echelon, for beeing drop troopers.

Reavers could form Wings (Cover me Porkins!) since they are closest thing to Fighter Wings (jets don't count since they are separate units). "Falx" (curved blades, also blades mounted on chariots. "Falx" is plural form).

I like Pack for Mandrakes.

Answer in the Codex, hobby section.

Some sort of Gang Name, Cobalt Vipers, Corespur Elite.

Really they are not much more then Helions, organization wise.

I know that, but I meant that while we've got the Black Heart Kabal, or the Coven of the Flesh, or the Coven of Strife, we've got... the Corespur Elite? Corspur Elite what? There's got to be a name for an organisation. Reavers are described as performing in arenas, so that implies a level of organisation at least reaching that of the Wyches, rather than the rabble that is the Hellion Gangs.

My scourges are from the Enclave of the Whispered Curse. I liked the duality of the fact that it relates to a group isolated within a larger one, and yet still seems to suggest some sort of threatening all-seeing organisation.

Scourges are organized into scourge eyries, at least where they live.

The eyrie is the place where they live, it's a term for any high or particularly inaccessible place, but is generally used to refer to the nests of eagles and other birds of prey
