Hey people, this is my once again editted fluff which now has a little more info bout my craftworld.
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 darkness of their Cratworld, the DrisAsh are are not easily trusted by most other Eldar that they come in contact with. They are seen as falling towards the path of their dark bretheren which is very untrue. The DrisAsh are most dedicated to the preservation of the Eldar and wish nothing more than to see them return to there former glory.
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.
The doctrine that which the DrisAsh impose during combat is to defeat as much of the enemy forces as possible before they realise exactly where they are positioned and are able to muster any kind of counter attack. Tactics which have been confirmed as being employed by the DrisAsh mainly focus around ambushin armies before they reach the battlefield and in a number of cases entire wars have been thwarted by the simple act of rangers taking out units of enemy Commanders.
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.
OTHER STUFF (wasnt sure what section to actually add this info)
Since coming into contact with other Eldar again, the DrisAsh have encounterd many foes. Foremost of these foes are the Tau. Because of the closeness of the Tau Empire to their Craftworld, the DrisAsh must always be alert for sudden attacks for this fledgling foe. While many of the Eldar seem content with the Tau and have much contact with them it is not so for the DrisAsh. Due to the seeming arrogant appearance that the DrisAsh unknowingly portray, the Tau, when first in contact, where offended and in anger they attempted to assassinate the DrisAsh Farseer, Dris-Elourge, but were thwarted. Since then the DrisAsh have had no contact with the Tau apart from opposite ends of the battle field.
- Any battles of 1000pts or more, the army list must include a unit of Striking Scorpions and Dark Reapers.
- 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.
CHARACTERS (so far)
Farseer Dris-Elourge (Shadow-Sage)
Wraithlord Scuraith-Mure (Walking-Death)

It's nicely written, well put together too..
If I had a criticism, and it's not really a bad thing, it's just a pet peeve, your fluff reads very much like an explanation of your army list. Try putting in some more things which won't just explain the type of units you use, random stuff about craftworld culture and society, how they feel about XXX or YYY. These kind of things add depth and realism, and make your craftworld unique.. There is more to a planet sized starship than just the units on the army list.
cheers mate. thanks for your thoughts. im in the process of going through it again and making some adjustments and including more background etc like you suggested.
well i hae made a few changes so there is a little bit of new stuff in there. and i slso took out a fair bit of stuff too.
