Dark Eldar Reaper

Akin to the more commonly encountered Ravager, the Reaper is a high speed attack gunship, but unlike its brother-craft, its sleek, dart-like hull is built around a single powerful weapon — the Storm Vortex projector. This cannon — like the smaller Haywire blaster — unleashes a cascading pulse of electromagnetic energy but on a scale far more powerful than anything possible in a hand weapon. The vortex chamber at the heart of the Reaper is a cage for howling energies harvested from the spires of Commorragh, which when unleashed creates a hurricane of lightning capable of crippling the heaviest enemy vehicles and burning out the nervous system of living creatures, roasting enemy soldiers alive from within. For all its offensive power, the Reaper, like most other Dark Eldar warcraft relies on speed and manoeuvrability to survive on the battlefield, and disdains the brute attrition of armoured warfare as practiced by the Imperium or the Orks in favour of bloody ambush and predation. The Reaper, though a rare and costly device, is greatly loved by the Kabals and Covens who field them, as the Storm Vortex can be used to easily disable fleeing refugee transports and shuttlecraft with the minimum of collateral damage — all the better for the Dark Eldar themselves to get at the delectable contents within.

The Storm Vortex projector is a massively powerful electromagnetic wave cannon capable of firing either a confined beam of force, or a blast which detonates on striking its target in a storm of energy. Declare which fire mode you are using each time the weapon is fired. Blast Beam Range Strength AP 24" 5 4 36" 7 3 Special Heavy 1, Haywire, Pinning, 5" Blast Heavy 1, Haywire, Kill-Shock

Haywire: If the Storm Vortex hits a vehicle, including any vehicle caught under its template in the case of the blast fire mode, resolve its effects as normal, then roll a further D6. On a 2-5, the vehicle suffers a glancing hit. On a 6 it suffers a penetrating hit. On the roll of 1, nothing happens. Kill-Shock: The concentrated beam greatly enhances the Storm Vortex’s power, so that when the beam strikes a vehicle it takes D3 haywire rolls (as shown previously) rather than the usual one. Additionally, against targets with a Toughness score, it inflicts Instant Death on a To Wound roll of a 6, regardless of the target’s Toughness.
