The Flying Bullshit in all its rapetastic glory.

The Voidraven Bomber AKA The Flying Cheese Monger is one of the most powerful vehicles in the Dark Eldar army list. It is an extremely agile aircraft capable of outmaneuvering the fliers of most other factions with ease. It also looks pretty cool too.

The Voidraven's primary armament consists of either a pair of void lances or a pair of dark scythes. These weapons are supplemented by four missiles that can be mass fired in one volley. Just to crank things up to maximum bullshittery, each Voidraven also carries a single Void Mine which introduces darklight into real space in a catastrophic implosion that leaves nothing but an enormous hemispherical crater in its wake. Deploying one is enough to send your opponent into a flying RAGE as his entire army of Grey Knights gets reduced into free floating molecules. It is for this reason that the Voidraven is one of the most feared weapons of the Dark Eldar both in fluff and on the tabletop.

While the Voidraven relies mainly on speed and maneuverability to evade the enemy, it is also equipped with a sonic dampening system that makes it virtually silent to its unsuspecting victims below.

Missile Armament[edit]

Like its smaller cousin the Razorwing Jetfighter the Voidraven Bomber can choose from a wide selection of missile types, all of which kill the enemy in a variety of seemingly impractical yet deadly ways:

  • Monoscythe missiles: This missile's warhead is designed to release a wave of energy at head-height that decapitates nearby foes.
  • Necrotoxin missiles: Filled with deadly neurotoxins, this missile's warhead explodes in toxic shards that kill and pin the enemy.
  • Shatterfield missiles: This missle has two separate detonation chambers. The first one sucks away all warmth, turning the foe into ice-like statues. The second one sends out a powerful blast that blows the brittle enemy to pieces.
  • Implosion missiles: Targets hit by the blast of this weapon instantly implode and collapse into themselves, leaving behind nothing except charred remains.
