Hey people, well here is my fluf for the craftworld that i have made up. this is pretty much the first time i have done this so its probably kind of dodgy so i would really appreciate any suggestions etc... so that i can improve.
The Craftworld of DrisAsh was one of the first to abandon the planets of the Eldar when they descended into total anarchy. Even though thay had managed to get a large distance from the epicenter of the explosion of psychic energies, the resulting shockwave killed thousands of the inhabiting Eldar and sent the Craftworld sailing uncontrollably through space.
Ever since the disaster of the Fall and the shockwave that caused so much damage to the DrisAsh, they decided to attempt to return to the Eldar worlds and try to find out if any of their bretheren had survived, not knowing the extent of the destruction.
After floating through space back towards the coordinates of their homeworld, the DrisAsh came into contact with the Eldar of the Alaitoc Craftworld and learnt just how far their once mighty race had fallen. Like all surviving Craftworld Eldar, the DrisAsh incorporated the Path of the Eldar, so as to control their inner natures and not allow themselves to fall into the clutches of Slaanesh, Prince of Excess.
Due to the DrisAsh being flung into unchartered space, the Concil of Elders (see Organisation for more information) decided to alter the construction of the psychically built Craftworldso that it would blend into the surrounding space and be camoflagued from any alien races that were possibly in the vicinity. Due to this the DrisAsh have learnt to live in near perpetual darkness.
The DrisAsh Eldar are controlled by the Council of Elders. Originally comprising of a handful of experienced Eldar, since the introduction of the Eldar Path the Council has expanded to include Eldar from most of the different Paths. With so many members there are two that make the final choices governing the DrisAsh. These two are of the original handful that made up the Council, Farseer Dris-Buanna (translated as Shadow-Sage) and Autarch Althios.
With Alaitoc being the first Craftworld that the DrisAsh encounterd, they were greatly influenced by them thus the DrisAsh adhere strictly to the Path of the Eldar. Because of this, like the Alaitoc, they have a large number of their Eldar to follow the Path of the Outcast. Due to the number that become outcasts, Tal Shiarl have only a small standing army compared to many of hte other Craftworlds relying more on Rangers and Pathfinders.
The main Aspects that the DrisAsh follow are those of the Striking Scorpion and Dark Reapers due to their dark and menacing natures. Because these are the main two shrines, enemies have always noted that units of Scorpions and Reapers are present, sowing destruction in their ranks.
While being present, the DrisAsh only use a minimal amount of heavily armour vehicles such as Falcons and Wave Serpentsas they prefer to use more lightly armoured and manouverable vehicles such as Vypers.
Wraithbone constructs are seen by the DrisAsh as a necessity in the return of the Eldar of their Craftworld to their former glory and thus a mighty Wraithlord is always raining fire down on the enemy from the rear of the army.
The DrisAsh believe in sowing disruption in the enemy ranksby attacking from the shadows. This belief stowes from the DrisAsh living on such a dark and shadowy Craftworld since the Fall.
- Any battles of 1000pts or more, the army list must include a unit of Striking Scorpions and Dark Reapers and at least one Wraithlord.
- Must take at least 2 units of Rangers/Pathfinders in any battle due to the large number of Eldar that adhere to the Path of the Outcast.
- No more than two vehicles with an armour value of more than 30 may be included in any list. (IE Falcons, Wave Serpents and Fire Prisms).
CHARACTERS (so far)
Farseer Dris-Buanna (Shadow-Sage)
Wraithlord Scuraith-Mure (Walking-Death)

Can no one help me??? hahaha
The fluff looks decent... I can't critique too much as I'm not an Eldar player or a Fluff God, so all I can give are my basic impressions.You might want to tweak the name... coupled with the above line, your craftworld winds up looking very Romulan.The Tal Shiarl believe in sowing disruption in the enemy ranksby attacking from the shadows.
Wouldn't Warp Spiders and Harlequins be a better fit to the army theme (striking from 'the shadows')?
I new i had heard the name before and i couldnt for the life of me think where now i no thanks poptartsninja. i think i mite change the name now.....
i think scorps go well for the simple fact that one of their exarch powers is 'Shadowstrike' and also im going for a more shooty orientated army so thus DARK reapers mainly cause they would blend into the shadows....unti they fore their devastating weapons anyway hahaha.
also i want to stay away from the harlies even though i do really like them i just feel they go against what im trying to go for with my army.
