Eldar Transport Ship

From 1d4chan
Like an Imperial Transport with pixie wings.
In Battlefleet Gothic: Armada

The Eldar too, has their own transport ships just like the Imperium. Logistics, still plays an important role, even more so, to the dwindling population of the Eldar. However, these ships are far faster than their lumbering Imperial counterparts, making them able to evade capture from corsairs and pirates.

Overview[edit]

The Eldar Transport Ship is a transport used by the Eldar. These vessels are used for trading with more advanced races (rarely interacting with humans) as well as for short-range logistical duties in Eldar operations. What these 'advance' races mean, we have no fucking clue, since a) they are either too busy being dead or b) they are either too busy being enemy #1. Probably psychic species or species who heavily utilize Warp-based technology considering the Craftworlders' are utterly reliant on literal techno-sorcery. Like the Fra'al. The Dark Eldar are ironically the ones who realized Warp-tech is a stupid idea if you can avoid it.

They appeared in Battlefleet Gothic: Armada as a quest unit for aiding the Eldar Corsairs. You must protect them from raiding Ork Pirates from attack. Fortunately, Eldar transport ships have the best weapons of all transporters in the game. Considering the magnetic field that absorbs damage, and the ability to travel quietly, this unit can be the easiest for escort missions.

It is assumed that, like their Imperial counterparts, these are the vessels that would most likely transport Eldar Titans around.
