The Tantalus is the Raider's bigger brother and the only Super-Heavy gravtank of the Dark Eldar. The Tantalus was first bought up and crafted by Archon Surasis Grief of the Kabal of the Dark Mirror. The Tantalus is first and foremost an assault skimmer that is somewhat larger and more complex in design than its much smaller brethren.

Its larger size consequently means it has a larger armament. Its distinctive catamaran design houses powerful engine-reactors slaved to enhanced drives and its unique scythevane armament that wrecks both infantry and vehicles alike.

It is by far one of the largest Dark Eldar vehicles yet encountered by the Imperium and the pilot of the Tantalus takes delight in mounting high-speed attacks, slicing through the hulls of enemy vehicles and tearing infantry into crimson shreds, heralded by the screech of the molecular dissonance fields of its scythevanes.

The Tantalus is armed with the iconic scythevanes to chop up some blobs of infantry as well as a giant Pulse-Disintegrator armament for those pesky tanks. The Tantalus was once a unique craft, but after the death of Surasis Grief it was copied and sold to other Kabals.
