Fiercely intelligent piratical raiders who feed upon anguish to stave off the slow death of their souls, the Drukhari epitomise everything wanton and cruel about the ancient Aeldari race from which they are descended. Their boundless potential is put to every terrible purpose they can imagine, and because their lives span millennia, they have all the time they need to perfect their stygian arts. Collectively, the warriors of Commorragh know all the ways there are to kill the galaxy’s myriad creatures, and delight in perfecting as many as they can.
The Drukhari are a decadent race of alien tormentors and raiders. Once part of a galaxy-spanning empire, the Drukhari now indulge in every macabre passion their supreme intelligence can conceive. They consider themselves superior to the galaxy’s other races, and suffer a gnawing sickness of the soul which only the suffering of others can fill. The ranks of the Drukhari are filled with fleet and agile warriors, each armed with weaponry designed to inflict maximum pain, and through their innate poise they raise their torturous form of war into a gruesome artform.
Get ready to launch raids with superior anti-grav vehicles, hideous vat-grown cyborgs, and coteries of venom-shooting killers. Whether you prefer the gang-like cartels of Kabalite Warriors, the gladiatorial Wyches from the arenas or the surgical horror of the Haemonculi (or even a mix of all three!) this book is for you. Along with inspirational photographs of stunningly painted models, it features the background and lore of the Drukhari, and the rules that you need to field them in your games of Warhammer 40,000.
Inside this 120-page codex, you will find:
– The history and dark origins of the Drukhari, their hideous obsessions and the competing factions that vie for power
– A showcase of stunningly painted Citadel Miniatures that displays the martial liveries, hedonistic colours and gruesome appearances seen among the varied power blocs of Commorragh
– A vast range of datasheets providing tabletop rules for units from the Drukhari army
– Army-wide rules and an evocative Crusade section that allow you to transform your collection of Drukhari miniatures into a terrifying force, poised to strike at the galaxy's vulnerable underbelly and reap the spoils
– And more!
The Drukhari are a decadent race of alien tormentors and raiders. Once part of a galaxy-spanning empire, the Drukhari now indulge in every macabre passion their supreme intelligence can conceive. They consider themselves superior to the galaxy’s other races and are afflicted by a gnawing sickness of the soul which only the suffering of others can fill. The ranks of the Drukhari are filled with fleet and agile warriors, each armed with weaponry designed to inflict maximum pain and, through their innate poise, they raise their torturous form of war into a gruesome artform.
Launch your own realspace raid with Combat Patrol: Drukhari! The contents of this set have been specifically chosen to provide you with an ideal Drukhari force for Combat Patrol-sized games – approximately 25 Power Level's worth of models.
This set includes the following multipart plastic units:
– 1x Archon
– 10x Kabalite Warriors
– 5x Incubi
– 1x Ravager
– 1x Raider
These kits come supplied with the relevant Citadel bases for their models, and the set also includes a Drukhari transfer sheet.
The Archons are the masters of the Drukhari Kabals. Regal and monstrous in equal measure, each wields the power to enslave worlds and destroy civilisations. Archons have fed upon the pain of so many others that it takes true atrocity to invigorate them, so they must lead ever more raids against realspace.
This 11-piece plastic kit makes one Archon clad in Kabalite armour inscribed with runes. The Archon carries a husk blade and splinter pistol, while the cloak of skin and the trophy rack mounted upon his pack proudly display the bounty of horror he has reaped in battle.
Warhammer 40,000 Drukhari or Dark Eldar rely heavily on surprise and raw speed, and hence their skycraft are all fast and manoeuvrable. The most deft of all Commorite transports is the Venom, an arrow-swift skimmer that carries an elite cadre of warriors into battle to strike like a poisoned dart at the heart of the foe. Should even a single Venom penetrate the enemy defences it can be enough to sow the seeds of destruction, laying down supporting fire as its lethal cargo goes to work. For this reason, the Venom is the perfect transport vehicle for Archons, Succubi and their respective bodyguards.
Haemonculi are deranged flesh-sculptors that dwell in the dank bowels of Commorragh. They are master torturers, expert poisoners and dark alchemists that are capable of transcending death itself. Their ability to alter the bodies of their victims to create obscene horrors wrought of flesh and bone is an invaluable dark gift, with many of their creations proven to be essential assets when war is waged in realspace.
This 11-piece plastic kit makes one Haemonculus equipped with an array of deadly surgical instruments and a splinter pistol. His body is born aloft by a grotesquely elongated spine, as he drifts across the field of battle with a macabre elegance, gifting a slow and painful death to all those who cross its path.
Warhammer 40,000 Hellions are airborne killers. Feral Dark Eldar, they descend upon their prey in a flurry of hooked blades before hurtling away to safety. Hellions ride to war upon skyboards, single-pilot anti-gravity boards, and pump their systems full of combat drugs. They are crazed terror troops who swoop into the midst of the foe, screaming curses and severing limbs with their murderously sharp hellglaives.
This Warhammer 40,000 box set contains five multi-part plastic Dark Eldar Hellions. This 83-piece set includes: three variations of skyboard, 10 different heads, five different bodies (three male and two female). Also included are all of the weapon options listed in Codex: Dark Eldar, including Hellglaives and an agoniser. Models supplied with small flying bases.
The Incubi are an order of Drukhari that hone themselves for war and war alone. Warriors of the highest calibre, they dedicate themselves to the perfection of the killing strike. Despite the Incubi’s monk-like asceticism, no shred of virtue exists in their bloodstained souls, for though they profess a desire to achieve perfection in every aspect of their existence, their true goal is simply to kill as often as possible. Often employed in Commorragh as bodyguards, Incubi are considered as more trustworthy than other Drukhari. More heavily armoured than their kin and carrying lethal blades, many Archons consider the use of Incubi as a status symbol. Add these elite warriors to your army and ensure the success of your realspace raids. This kit is supplied in 68 plastic components and comes with 5 28.5mm Citadel round bases and a 25mm round base. It builds either 5 Incubi or 4 Incubi and a Klaivex. The Klaivex can be assembled either with a pair of joined demiklaives or separated demiklaives and also has a choice of two heads. The kit also includes a single-piece Drukari symbol that could optionally be used as an objective marker.
Warhammer 40,000 Warriors of the Kabals form the beating heart of each Dark Eldar strike force. They are the cruellest and most rapacious of their caste, hungry for power and thirsty for the suffering of others.
Warriors of the Kabals form the beating heart of each Dark Eldar strike force. They are the cruellest and most rapacious of their caste, hungry for power and thirsty for the suffering of others. Kabalite Warriors are merciless fighters of murderous intent, who are led to battle by Sybarites, masters in the craft of war.
This Warhammer 40,000 box set contains 10 multi-part plastic Warhammer 40,000 Dark Eldar Warriors. This 102-piece set includes: five different styles of legs, 15 different heads (5 bare, 10 helmeted), 10 bodies (with three different male and three different female variants), and a host of optional extras. Also included are every weapon option described in Codex: Dark Eldar, including: a shredder, a blaster, a splinter cannon, a dark lance, a blast pistol and an agoniser. Models supplied with 25mm round bases.
The exact nature of the Warhammer 40,000 Mandrakes is unknown and no one, including the Dark Eldar themselves, truly know what they are. Some speculate that they are shadows brought to life, whilst others believe them to be an unholy union of Eldar and Daemon. Whatever their origin, one thing is certain: they are a terrifying foe. Like all the denizens of Commorragh, the Mandrakes thrive on the malevolent infliction of pain, often appearing from the shadows to strike at the enemy when they least expect it, tearing flesh from bone with wicked-looking blades, sharpened claws and their own, blood-flecked teeth.
The Ravager gunship is arrow-swift. Armed with three devastatingly powerful heavy weapons, it provides the Drukhari with armoured fire support, engaging the heaviest of enemy targets. Ravager gunships are so fast and manoeuvrable that they can ambush an enemy tank and destroy it in a single devastating pass disappearing again before the enemy knows what hit them.
This box set contains one multi-part Drukhari Ravager. This 157-piece set includes: darklances, disintegrator cannons, a selection of aethersail configurations and prow designs that allow you to create a whole armada of distinctive Ravagers. Model supplied with a large flying base.
The Reavers of Commorragh are fascinated by the art of war at speed. They ride to battle upon the most streamlined and pared-down of all skycraft - the anti-grav jetbike, a perfect fusion of raw motive power and finely-honed lethality. The goal of every Reaver is to land a well-placed, fatal blow, to take off a head or slash open a throat with a single pass of their blade.
This box set contains three multi-part plastic Drukhari Reavers. This 68-piece set includes: seven heads and three different bodies, a heat lance, a blaster, a cluster caltrop pod and a host of extra blades. Models supplied with small flying bases.
A rich and daring Warhammer 40,000 Dark Eldar may surrender himself to the Haemonculi, requesting that his bones be hollowed out, that bands of new muscle be grafted onto his torso, and powerful wings and adrenaline dispensers be attached to his shoulders so that he is capable of true flight. The Kabal overlords pay handsomely for these veteran warriors to fight for them and as a result the Warhammer 40,000 Dark Eldar Scourges will often equip themselves with the best weaponry and armour that they can find. It is rare for the Scourges to engage the enemy up close, preferring to lay down a withering hail of fire before flying away out of harm's reach.
This multi-part plastic set contains five Warhammer 40,000 Dark Eldar Scourges in 80 components, including plenty of weapon upgrades in the form of a shredder, splinter cannon, haywire blaster, heat lance, blaster and a dark lance. There are also several weapon options should you wish to upgrade one of the Scourges into a Solarite to lead the unit. The set includes five 25mm bases. These miniatures are supplied unpainted and require assembly - we recommend using Citadel Plastic Glue and Citadel Paints.
The Succubi are the ruling elite of the Wych Cults. Impossibly elegant and beautiful, they stalk through the mayhem of battle as if born to it. They regularly take the lead in the war against realspace, not only for the feast of plunder, but also to hunt the champions of the lesser races and defeat them in showy displays of sheer skill.
This 10-piece plastic kit makes one Succubus equipped with an agoniser and archite glaive. The Succubus carries a trophy rack which demonstrates her prowess in battle, and is sculpted with cables in her neck which deliver her much needed combat drugs.
In the craft of murder, Wyches have no equal. In battle, Wyches feed upon screams of pain. With combat drugs coursing through their veins, Wyches roll, backflip and pirouette out of harm's way, stabbing through visors and neck-joints, slicing open a throat here and piercing a heart there.
This box set contains 10 multi-part plastic Drukhari Wyches. This 92-piece set includes: 14 different heads, 10 different bodies (six female variants and four male variants). Also included are all of the weapon options listed in Codex: Dark Eldar, including: a razorflail, a blast pistol, a shardnet, a power weapon and an impaler. Models supplied with 25mm round bases.
Datacards make referencing your rules in battle easy. Containing quick-reference Stratagems, they allow you to dictate the battle with the skill and acuity of Vect himself – or, at the very least, ensure you don't forget to use that crucial Stratagem when you need it most!
This pack contains 41 datacards, divided as follows:
– 7x core Stratagem cards
– 34x Drukhari Stratagem cards
You will need a copy of Codex: Drukhari to use the contents of this set.
In Drazhar, the Incubi ideal of violent perfection is exquisitely personified. His every strike exemplifies the tenets of his order, and each life he claims serves as a gruesome liturgy for his dark brethren. Those Incubi who fight in the presence of Drazhar set aside their deep-seated jealousy and are driven by his unquestionable skill to even greater extremes of martial expertise. Drazhar invariably becomes the locus of murder on the battlefield, the calm centre in a storm of beautifully enacted violence.
Equipped with the Executioner's demiklaives, nothing can stand before the Master of Blades in combat as he easily slices his way through anyone who dares to challenge him. Clad in segmented armour that is even more ornate than that of the Incubi who follow him, Drazhar makes an amazing painting project as well as an incredible battlefield leader.
This kit is supplied in 16 plastic components and comes with a 40mm round base.
Grab these dice, specially themed to match your Drukhari army. They're perfect for rolling your way into realspace.
Each six-sided, round-cornered die is a deep turquoise colour. The 20 dice in this set each measure 16mm x 16mm and feature the icon of the Kabal of the Black Heart on the 6 face, and traditional pips on the other faces, in an off-white colour. The dice are supplied in a blister pack, with an artworked backing card.
Raiders are the favoured transports of the Drukhari. Bladed skycraft, they are lightweight and extremely manoeuvrable. Raiders travel at extreme speed, using their sword-sharp fins and jagged keels to cut apart the foe, while their prow-mounted heavy weapons punish the foe.
This box set contains one multi-part plastic Raider. This 103-piece set includes two weapon options - a dark lance and disintegrator cannon. Model supplied with a large flying base.
Lelith Hesperax’s athleticism is far beyond those of other Wyches. She has raised death to a high art, wielding nothing more than simple knives. Gifting her victims with precise wounds in a blur of blade and flesh, she finishes in a bloody finale with a gory flourish.
There are few fighters in the game with the ability to slaughter enemies wholesale and duel enemy Characters with equally effortless ease, but Lelith Hesperax is no mere fighter! If you're looking for someone not so much to lead your force as to blend their way through the enemy army in a whirlwind of blades, be sure to add this gladiatrix supreme to your collection.
This kit builds 1x Lelith Hesperax. It comes in 10 plastic components and includes a Citadel 32mm Round Base.
The Drukhari employ Razorwing Jetfighters to sow destruction and panic in the midst of the foe. No prey is fast enough to outpace these aggressive and consummately skilled fighter craft, for each of their pilots was once a member of the Reaver elite, and to them fighting at breakneck speed is second nature. To ensure the total destruction of their enemies, the Razorwing is equipped with a huge array of weapons with which they can rend, blast, shred and melt their targets. Most deadly of all is the monoscythe missile, engineered to explode at head-height in a horizontal wave of energy that will decapitate anyone nearby.
This multi-part plastic kit contains one Drukhari Razorwing Jetfighter in 58 components. There are enough parts to equip it with either monoscythe missiles or necrotoxin missiles and a clear plastic canopy, giving you the option to paint the pilot and still be able to see him once the kit is fully assembled. This set is supplied with a clear plastic flying stand and a large oval base. This miniature is supplied unpainted and requires assembly - we recommend using Citadel Plastic Glue and Citadel Paints.
The Warhammer 40,000 Dark Eldar Talos Pain Engines are seen as the pinnacle of the Haemonculi's art. Creations of mad genius, each one is part organic and part mechanical, festooned with surgical apparatus and horrible-looking weapons of war. The bladed forelimbs of a Talos can scissor even an Ogryn into bloody chunks, while whirling blades and drills can eviscerate a man in seconds, disassembling him into his component parts, rending him down until nothing is left. For nearby Dark Eldar this is like watching an artist at work. For nearby foes it is a horrifying, gut-wrenching sight that can turn even the bravest warrior into a quivering wreck. The Warhammer 40,000 Dark Eldar Cronos Parasite Engine is a disturbing, bizarre creation and is used, much like the Talos, as a torture device and war machine. Through the strange blend of alchemy and science practiced by the Haemonculi covens, the Cronos drains away not the physical constituents of its victims, but their life essence. What remains of its prey when the vile creature has drunk its fill is little more than a grey shrivelled husk that quickly collapses into dust. An Archon will often keep a Cronos in his employ for when realspace raids take longer than expected as their mere presence can drive the Warhammer 40,000 Dark Eldar into a murderous frenzy that few defenders can hope to stop.
This multi-part plastic kit contains 89 components with which to make one Drukhari Talos Pain Engine or one Cronos Parasite Engine. The box includes all manner of features: chain-flails, ichor injectors, a liquefier gun and many syringes, as well as several variant heads and arms. It is a remarkably macabre addition to any Drukhari collection.
The Voidraven Bomber gives heavy support to Dark Eldar forces. It is capable of supersonic speeds while delivering a devastating void mine - a bomb that detonates two warheads, one establishes a crackling sphere of energy, the second releases a particle of pure darklight which annihilates anything trapped within the energy field.
This 71-piece plastic kit is a fantastic centrepiece miniature. When assembled this model has a nine and a half inch wingspan. Positioned halfway up the Voidraven’s fuselage is the pilot’s cockpit, while the bombardier lies in an armoured crystal dome right at the front, ready to select his next target with the aid of the targeting graphics sculpted onto the clear plastic of the dome. The Voidraven is powered by four huge jet engines that are built into the back of the double-delta wing design that matches the sleek profile of the Razorwing Jetfighter.
The Voidraven is equipped with a void mine, which is designed to be sited in one of two positions, stowed or ready to drop, under the main fuselage. Two void lances are secured under the wings, which can be exchanged for two dark scythes.
This miniatures are supplied unpainted and require assembly - we recommend using Citadel Super Glue and Citadel Paints.
Each Warhammer 40,000 Drukhari Wracks is an abhorrent example of his master's surgical craftsmanship, an individual cut apart and refashioned into a walking instrument of torture. Masked and modified to better instil fear into those they encounter, they act as the hands of the Haemonculi in the world outside, and upon the field of battle they will defend their creator with their lives. Most Warhammer 40,000 Dark Eldar Wracks will be surgically enhanced with heavy metal gauntlets, razor-sharp blades, needles, vials of poison and all manner of disturbing, exotic weapons with which to shred their foes. The more pain they cause, the better.
This 86-piece plastic kit makes five Wracks. Each Wrack can be equipped with a host of weapons, including hooked blades, studded clubs, 1 liquifier gun and 1 ossefactor. There are also eleven heads, including three intended for the Acothyst. This kit also includes two additional sets of arms which allow you to convert one Wrack into a Raider pilot or gunner
These miniatures are supplied unpainted and require assembly - we recommend using Citadel Super Glue and Citadel Paints.
