This mod adds the Dark Eldar as a playable race in Dark Crusade Skirmish and Online games. No plans to add them to the Single Player campaign exist at this time.

Based loosely on a combination of the old Dark Eldar Codex and the mod creator's own designs, this faction does not play like the latest Tabletop Codex. It does, however, stay close to the ethos of the Dark Crusade - crippling strikes and demoralising abilities that cause your enemy to attack thin air more often than the intended target.

A Soulstorm conversion will also exist at some point in the future, though I haven't decided whether it replaces the default Dark Eldar in that expansion or comes as an additional race.

Compatible with all existing race modifications.

So yeah, I'm moving on with the modding projects in my life. First up is the Dark Eldar Mod, something I have been involved with for a couple of years now. Unfortunately we never really got a team together; I joined the team as a coder and now I'm project lead.

Soulstorm was released some while ago, bringing Relic Entertainment's interpretation of Dark Eldar to the table. For a while people asked whether this mod had any point anymore, and I have to say I wondered myself. But, here we are, and I'm kicking things off again. Mods are done for the modder's pleasure, even if it isn't popular at least it'll be something I'd had the honour of working with.

Here is a brief overview of the structures available to this modded race.

The Archon Commander, your primary Commander and the melee monster of the Kabal.

Both of those are old updates; I have a tech tree that I need to type up and two sets of code to work on. The Dark Crusade version is quite stable - I'll probably be releasing a version soon - however the Soulstorm version still needs a lot of work. But it will be done.

Quoted from the mod description at the top of the page:

"We are fully aware that Soulstorm has provided the community at large with a Dark Eldar race. Our interpretation of the Dark Eldar is truer to the backstory of them beind fast but fragile raiders. Every building in this mod moves, in some form or another. We're taking advantage of an improving graphical interface, which provides more gameplay options. New and updated screenshots will be coming soon."

We're not dead, and this mod will now be for Dark Crusade (v1.2) and Soulstorm (though an SS release is likely to be delayed until the long-awaited patch comes out).

The mod is now at internal beta stage, and offers a totally new way to play Dark Eldar. Fragile, fast and furious :D
