Here's a question. Our fighter ace was left out of the crusade of fire book, was he left out of this one as well?

No it's in there now, listed as Eldar/Dark Eldar ace.

Okay, I must have not been paying attention but what exactly was the crusade of Fire book about and what is a fighter pilot ace thingo?

They are the same ones the eldar get from burning crusade, for the dogfight mini game. AKA rules your opponent will never let you use. Sad

They are a 3 stage rock,paper, scissors battle IIRC. I read them once thought "Meh" and put the book away.

So we basicaly got Dance of the Banshee and Sight of the Seer? Weak... we don't have banshees... or seers... Both of those moves are specific to craftworld eldar.
Read wrong section... So I guess its a little better. The Symbol of Khain looks nice but requires a melee based force to get the most out of it. Dance of Dusk is awesome, pretty much allows you to keep a flyer on the board until its destroyed. Dance of Dawn is pretty situational, requires your opponent to have a flier to get any use of it at all.

As for narrative, do the dark eldar hold respect for Khain? I don't seem to recall any mentioning of his worship or veneration, but a god of murder seems to be right up the crooked dark eldar back alley.

Finally got mine, missions aren't bad.
Having all the flyer stats and rules isn't bad for reference pirposes but the heldrake was left out. Ace fighter rules were given to CSM and DE who previously didn't have them. Void mine was turned into a bomb.
Not going to return it as the reference for the Storm Tallon and Orc fighters is good to have and not in codexs.
Nothing new as others have stated.

As for I can recall, I think in between our codexes in a few publications, I'm sure it's cities of death or planet strike and maybe a black library book, they steered the Dark Eldar towards Khaine worship.

The codex mentions that while the Dark Eldar are too arrogant to truly worship any deity, they do pay respect to Khaine (and the Dark Muses). Incubi seem to worship him, what's with sacrificing failed aspirants to Khaine and all.

Please don't discuss use of PDFs openly on the site Ivan as we wouldn't want to lose this site to the GW police.

Is this book worth it? Are you a primarily Dark Eldar player, then no?

Do you like varied missions, gutted you missed out on the dogfighting rules from crusade of fire, are vanilla or templar player who wants a stormraven, someone who owns a storm talon, a collector of everything GW or a mixture of the above? Maybe.
