Not that I really want to pat Blood of Kittens on the back, but it looks like almost all the rumors I put down a few months ago about Dark Eldar were true.
Anyway I should be getting a copy of the Dark Eldar Codex later today. I will update this post with everything from pictures to point costs to rules. We shall see if my iphone can handle it so it could get a little buggy. I will also have the updates on Blood of Kittens Twitter so join the BoK twitter if you want!
So stay tuned here and there for the latest.
As well leave comments I will try to answer an questions as best as I can.
This has been a long time coming and I cannot wait to start building and playing my favorite army of all time.

One important thing to note is Phil Kelly dedicates a portion of the book to telling people who this army is for skilled players and beginners.
After reading it cover to cover I am convinced more than ever that GW wants us to play with lots of terrain not these open fields we see everywhere. this army will be deadly but will play very well if there is the proper amount of terrain.
Thanks for reading guys have taken down the naughty bits. Cannot wait till the models come out and we all can become slaves to the True Eldar!
