Dark Eldar Superheavy Scratchbuild [10]

The Rapier is coming along nicely now. I have attached the pieces together to form the whole aircraft body and nose now, and am working on repairing defects and making sure that everything ends up smooth. I still need to add on some engines and get things to a consistently good quality.

To answer Kris Belleau's questions from the previous post I thought they would be better addressed here rather than directly replying because they were good questions and sometimes not everyone reads the comments. You can see clearly in the pictures below the final shape of the craft and the wings.

As for the weapons I'm looking at using some pulsars I have left over, but I am also thinking about building some Haywire cannons like the one found on the Forgeworld Reaper - just to have some variations and options.

If I'm not able to use custom rules for this thing for some reason, my intention is to count it as an Eldar Vampire and call it a day. There is still plenty to be done, but the goal is in sight!

Awesome! I like the pulsars... but if they are of Dark Eldar origin, then wouldn't they look like dark lances?... ;)

Is it going to be the same color scheme as the rest of your DE?

Hey! This is looking mighty fine!

Good job on the whole of it, but special congratulations are in order for sticking with it!
