More Dark Eldar Evilness
The more I think about, the more likely I am to drop the Raiders for my Incubi and instead go with Venoms. Of course, this is dependent upon weather they are released in the next Dark Eldar wave, as I'm not about to spend $70-90 per 5-man transport for the pleasure of converting one out of a Raider and a Vyper (plus whatever bits I have to order online).
Supposing I do go with Venoms instead of Raiders for these guys' rides, they'll be split up into three squads of four rather than two squads of seven. The remaining points would then be juggled around to include a third Haemonculus.
That's it for my painting progress over the last few days. I still have a second Haemonculus and eight more Incubi to paint.
I'm wondering if I should go ahead and pick up a third Haemonculus before the next wave of Dark Eldar come out and potentially make the models I'm currently using to represent my army's HQ choices obsolete, and making them impossible to purchase again.
I'm not about to panic-buy again, though. I'll wait until I but my Ravager if I do pick him up, thus getting myself free shipping without having to drive over to my local Games Workshop. Until then, I'll see what a Venom-based Dark Eldar force would look like. Honestly, I think I'll like it more despite losing 2 Incubi.
