Then a few nights ago I had an odd dream. I was having to escape somewhere with a group of people I remembered as being friends, but they had been mutated horribly and were as diseased as plaguebearers. I myself had a hand stuck full of syringes and couldn't move my arm at all. We were armed with scalpels and bits of framework off some kind of bed and were running through endless hallways that for a moment looked like a freezing works with racks and racks of oven tray-looking things; I pulled one out and it was full of foetuses, frozen in place and all full of needles.
Can't remember the rest but that was what stuck out in my head the most. I remember feeling very disturbed, a feeling I had to put into my miniatures but not my Space Marines...
So... Dark Eldar? will it be a thing? They're lightning-fast but not very strong with kabalite warriors being 9 pts each without modifiers. They're more into lots of presicion strikes than one bludgeoning blow like the Imperium. Not so much conversion work to be had in them either, but I went for it and made a test model anyway.
The Cabal of A Flayed Lust. They are a great band of pirates who live far below the deepest reaches of the Dark City, raiding noble houses through the sewer systems and breeding/creating hideous creatures to guard their kingdom when they leave for realspace raids.
Here's a kabalite also. A simple head swap feels so cheap to me-- that's a dark elf head, by-the-by. I should try the other way around-- a DE head on an elf body.
So that's that. What d'you think? Is this a thing I should seriously consider? I know I want some enemies to pose against my SM, so I'll end up collecting something in the end. (I thought orks, but I'd get so carried away with them I wouldn't get anything done.)
