    Dark Eldar books?

    Hey i was not exactly sure if this should go in the general section or here, but i figure of all places here would be the best.

    Are their any good novels in the Black library that have Dark Eldar as the main role? Im new to the Dark Eldar and wanted to get a good basic fluff knowledge of them before I go any further.

    So just throw out some names of books that every one enjoyed (I couldint find any)
    Thanks in advance

    As far as I know there are none... :ninja3:

    There are books with Dark Eldar in them but not in any meaningful or good way. With the slight exception of the Iron Snakes book...but all we do is get mercilessly slaughtered.

    I threw this question out a while ago and the general consensus was no This is a shame cos I think they look like a really cool race.

    There is a fluff article on the GW UK site, apparently that's the nearest thing they got. Don't know how long ago I inquired about it though, so things may have changed since then

    Things haven't changed. There is very little out there

    The tourturer's tale on the GW site is a good read and so is the codex. There were a few white dwarf articles on us when we were released which were aparently good, but i've never been graced by those issues so i don't know first hand.

    Books wise there is one book where we are made out to be worshippers of slannesh, which is just sooo wrong. And i beliee we are in a few books where we are just the guys to be beat up upon. Nothing really worth while.

    That's the 'Tactica Imperialis: A History of the Later Imperial Crusades' book? I quite enjoyed that (even though the Dark Eldar fell for a tragically simple ruse, and as usual the prowess of small squads of SMs was inflated way over how they behave on the table), but my copy has been nicked by Primuls.

    ahhh how depressing... Hopefully someday they will take a break from writing Space Marine books and start working on fluff for other races

    Places where Dark Eldar have appeared, and why they are incorrect:
    1. The Ultramarines Omnibus: Actually, not uniquely awful.
    2. the Iron Snakes: We're the beating boys, with a single space marine killing about twenty.
    3. Warrior Brood/Coven: One of these two, DE are made out to worship Chaos gods.
    4. Hellbreak: Short Story. Apparently, DE are completely incapable of killing a few dozen humans in their own city.

    'Tactica Imperialis: A History of the Later Imperial Crusades'
    Is a good read for fluff though it doesn't go into to much detail into the DE in themselves.

    3. Warrior Brood/Coven: One of these two, DE are made out to worship Chaos gods.
    In the History of the Later Imperial Crusades, they talk about how some DE have been seen with Chaos like marking on their armour and weapons. So maybe they do worship a form of chaos, or have they're own "god" like the Eldar have the Avatar.

    I happened to stumble across this a while ago and this post reminded me of it...

    Darkness Within: Online Dark Eldar Novel

    I haven't looked at it myself, so have no idea how it's going, but maybe it'd be worth checking out?

    Well i have never read or heard about a book that talks about Dark eldar (as the main plotline or even as a well developped secondary plotline),this is probably because:
    -Not many people play them,less people will buy it

    -We probably have the worst fluff of any race,i mean what is the dark eldar fluff apart from 'Arghhh we are the Fetish bondage dark eldars who just LOVE to capture slaves',that basically sums up the idea of the dark elves GW projects.Until we have better fluff writes can base a novel upon,i don't see any de book hitting the shelves...
    -A tau, dark eldar and slaanesh csm player
    -vassal player
    -And always on LO chat..
