Greeting my fellow Archons, Succubi and Haemonculi,
I come before you requesting some help in crafting my new Dark Eldar army.
I have been playing around with several different ideas for an army and I want to nail it down before I start to buy minis and models. There is no need to buy something that you won't be using.
My initial idea was to build my army as Obsidian Rose. I like the paint scheme and the fluff is interesting also. Then... I was looking at models and started to look at different model possibilities. I started to look at the different stories of the Dark Eldar... I found out about Poisoned Tongue and thought that it might be cool to make a conversion for Lady Malys.
I went back and was re-reading the codex, trying to find a nugget of an idea as to what path to take. I found a line in the codex that struck me. "Haemonculi, a twisted brotherhood of torturers and monsters so ancient and steeped in evil that their continued existence requires daily acts if indescibable torment."
(Dark Eldar Codex 5th Ed, p37)
This description makes me think of the Cenebites from the Hellraiser movies. Who knows... maybe the movies inspired the minis. This got me to start thinking about a possible design.Coven of the Souless Lamnations
A Coven of Haemoculus dedicated to the pursuit of ultimate pleasure, through the application of ultimate pain. The Haemoculi are led by a particularly twisted Haemoculus named, Yel'darb. Yel'darb is always found with his close advisors... fellow Haemoculi.
I was thinking of painting them as black armor with brass/gold trim. I have found several good images of the Lament Configuration (cube from Hellraiser movies), which I was going to use as the logos on the sails of the vehicles.
Anybody else use this theme? Any pics??
