Welcome back to the Chaos Corner. I must confess that it's quite funny (and ironic) that I wanted to create a blog (in part) to take a look at all things Chaos for 40K, but all I talk about is the new Dark Eldar. I can't help it! They're new, shinny, and some of the best models out there for 40K! I also think the codex is good- great fluff, a challenging list to use (though better than the last one), and some nice artwork make it a great book all round.
So, last week (June 30) I played a game with my old college friend Joe. Like me, he owns a few armies, but I think he's great with Eldar. He's got a nice assortment of models, some great poses, and some nifty forgeworld stuff too. I only wish he'd paint them!!
Before the new 'dex, if I had failed my rolls like that, the army would have died a quick death. But the new book gives enough surprises to permit SOME mistakes (I'm looking at you Flickerfield). Thus, I was able to mount a strong defense of my objective, stopping him from taking it.
So, here are some pics of the battle. Hope you enjoy. I'll be battling him tomorrow (Kin Wars Part II)!
