I just thought for a bit and I decided that I just love the way the venoms look! So, stats and point-efficiency aside, which one has the sweetest model?
We dont have that much different vehicles, and ravagers look just like raiders, but I thought to ask this anyway.

Also, do any elderly archons out there think that the previous raiders looked better than the new ones? (Dont have any of those, but I have seen a few pictures)

Venom for sure. I personally hate the old dark eldar range and vehicles so think the new stuff is much improved

They are all terrific looking but if you force me then I have to say it's the Raider/Ravager - just love that sail and the whole sailing ship aesthetic...

Not in love with the old range of models but I've seen some nice conversions to update them (I've used a couple of old Reavers with new fins etc. that work quite well.)

The Raider is my favourite vehicle kit in 40k and in my top 5 overall models...

I'd have diversified the poll a bit more, split the Raider and Ravager up and add the Tantalus, Reaper and Raven.

I didnt really think of adding forgeworld models Suspect
And since the raider and ravager are almost exactly alike, I thought to keep them together!

The Venom is a slightly over sized jet bike that carries 5 naked chicks.
Its wins, everything, always.

For me, definitely the Venom. Love the sleek curves and the small size.

Raiders, no doubt.

I also am a fan of the old line and have no idea why it is being dissed on - yeah, I can understand people mocking the Wyches I suppose, and the Grots almost certainly, but our old vehicle line was one of the best at the time and remains very aesthetically pleasing in my opinion.

I do love the other vehicles but since the razorwing came out it has been my favorite, first skimmer and now flyer. Almost wish were still skimmers, wrong discussion. I did like the old raiders/ravagers but the new are so , hmm, clean, smooth and the venom is just hoss looking meaning sweet. I think the whole new line of DE are better in a lot of ways but do miss some of the old sculpts.

I sort of expected the Raider to win, but it is doing so at a really impressive ratio. That thing is just a beautiful and well-designed model.

Raiders and Ravagers for me. I like the style and fluff of being converted pleasure craft.

You know the Venoms and Razorwings look amazing but there's something special about a fleet of Raiders that cant be beat

I'm very surprised that the venom has got so few votes now... it was at the lead for start Very Happy
Still my favourite!

I am an Archon... I travel on a graceful and confortable ship, full of nude women, food, poisons and other similar funnies... I never thought about traveling in 5 on a bike... I'm not a worker from Punjabi!

The Venom is a gorgeous model...but, at the end of the day, it's sort of like a smaller and less blinged out Raider. I suspect that's what is hurting it. It's hard to argue the Venom's glory without realizing you're also arguing the Raider's glory.

They all look great, I love how customisable the raiders are though.

The new raider/ravager kit is a work of art. They could have stopped at the hull and sold most people, I think what really tipped them over the edge into "awesome" territory are little dudes hanging off the hull with boat hooks and rifles and whatnot, not to mention there's bits for weapons, bodies, legs etc included for at least three of them plus crew. That kit is seriously genius, and I really think their artists outdid themselves. The rest of the range is awesome, but when I think Dark Eldar I think the Raider. Then you have the great detail like chains and barbs, all with a solid ball and socket joint for an easy flying stand to seal the deal. Seriously, the old "tiny peg that was always too small or too big" thing was a huge pain when it came to any skimmer/flying model. I don't know how I've kept so many of my old reavers together.

I still like my old Raiders, I have a pretty decent amount of them and the old ravagers, I'm in the process of trying to "modernize" them with current bits, but as nice as they are they just don't stand up to the new kits.

Honorable mention to the venom with its wealth of weapon/head/body bits and riders.

The Venom is my favorite vehicle of the Dark Eldar range. It is by far my favorite to paint.

also another thing is that in the older eldar/dark eldar codex's you can often see ships with sail's flying around in the background. there was never really much detail to the pics, but
the designer's finally got it together and produced some awesome models.
