Dark Eldar: Reaper

The Reaper came together pretty quickly.  It’s a Forge World resin/plastic kit based on the Raider.  It’s been primed and waiting for me for a while.  I’m not sure how effective it is (it’s gotten nerfed a couple of times with edition changes), but it looks pretty cool.  I may use it as a centerpiece for a haywire-themed army, along with haywire Wyches and Scourges with haywire blasters.

I really like the sail on this model, although it was a pain to get ready.  It came a little warped.  While it easily can be adjusted with hot water, it’s hard to get it straight.  Plus there was a ton of flash in the rigging, although it cleaned up pretty well.

Even though these dudes have no rules supporting them, I figured I ought to bling out the model a bit.

One of the more subtle resin bits are these extra trailing blades.  The main gun also runs all the way through the hull, which I think is kind of neat.

This completes my Dark Eldar backlog, so I’m ready for the new codex!
