New plastic kits for Warhammer 40,000 Dark Eldar have now been unveiled by Games Workshop – here are our first impressions.
Dark Eldar Scourges
The new Dark Eldar Scourges multi-part plastic kit replaces the old metal miniatures that haven’t been available for a while.
These new miniatures are as big an improvement on the old metals as the new Kabalite Warriors and Wyches were on their previous incarnations, when they were released last year. The wings look awesome and the number of weapon options is impressive. A big thumbs up from all at Big Orbit games. Click here for pics.

Dark Eldar Talos Pain Engine / Cronos Parasite Engine
Games Workshop have listed these in two seperate entries on their website but they are in fact a single kit. I’m loving the Talos Pain Engine, especially the arms. I’m really not liking the Cronos at all however, the tentacles are just too much. I feel that if they were just at the front it would work, but front and back is overkill.

The Dark Eldar Talos Pain Engine has been available before and is a big improvement on the old metal model, the Cronos Parasite Engine is an all new model.

Dark Eldar Venom
Personally I’ve been waiting for the Venom since the new Dark Eldar Codex was released and the kit looks as good as I’d hoped. The Wyches should hopefully be easily swappable with the Kabalite miniatures that come with the Raider, allowing the option of representing the troop type being carried in either vehicle.
