The new scourges are beautiful models, I can understand what drew you to them. And on top of that they're just so easy to mix with other bits from the range.

The first Dark Eldar models I actually bought were the new Archon and a box of the new Wyches, but a couple friends gave me a total of ~1,500 points of the old Dark Eldar models (three Raiders, the female Dracon, something like 12 jetbikes and 40+ Warriors) about 6 months before the new codex came out, and I figured out how to win with the old codex in the meantime.
Still, one of the things that originally attracted me to the Dark Eldar was the Wych Cult, and while I do like the new models a lot, I kinda wish they'd done some in the old style.

Best thing from the box as far as I was concerned. Good times.
That Battleforce were also my first ever DE models, closely followed by a couple of Reaver jetbikes as I just -had- to have a Chopper Archon.
Of this set, I first picked up the Battleforce and an extra Raider.
I know what u mean, I was the guy in my area who always got stuck with the de in the boxes demo games lol. "here watch how awesome these marines are"
I think I died a little inside when my codex showed up I threw it open to look at the archon....
NO JETBIKE ARCHON???!!!
That woulda been my 1st buy.. Some reavers n archon to convert into the NEW cult of the cobalt blur
Sadly... I couldn't recreate my sold de army...
So I guess it was the raider and some sexy wyches
But the razerwing has been my fave sofar... Just awesome lines and not TOO evil. Just right

1998: I can't remember if I was a sensible kid and bought the Codex first, no, hmmm, I'm going to put my money on a box of Warriors and then I think a Haemonculus and then maybe the Codex. So it goes.
2010: Codex, Archon, Urien, Lelith, 3 Raiders, 2 Reavers, 2 Warriors, 2 Wyches, 3 Webways: One big preorder.

I believe it was a box of the new Warriors when they first came out, closely followed by Wyches. I bought them thinking I'll just assemble and paint and won't play, but how wrong was I...
So now my starting army in 40K is Dark Eldar

That's how they hook you - those models are dangerous.

My first purchase was a whole bunch of old DE-Warriors from the 3rd Edition Starterbox my Friends wouldn't use. Then it was the old Talos.
Tomorrow I'll buy a new Ravager as the first new DE

Go back far enough to the 3rd ed talos and you have my first DE model... though it sat in a box for the better part of a decade prior to being built and painted last year!!!

Well it started with a box of reavers. Then another box of reavers, after that some gortesques a hame,a raider, a battleforce for the reavers and raider, and finally wracks.
I enjoy all games where I can be raciest against Elves.
Space Elves get a pass.

Well there are two awnsers.
My girlfreind and I first constructed 30+ wracks 10 grotesques and three talos using non-Eldar bitz. The first actual DE model I purchased was last sunday |6.11.11| and is amazing to say the least. I love the shape of the ship and the way the Crew looks gives me great hope for the warrors of the Dark city. All hail pain and the dark city.
