new pirate gun ship

Ok I am not the only one who thinks of the Dark Eldar as Pirate Space Elves, right.?
I have caught the Dark Eldar bug. I cant stop thinking about them I woke up this morning because I was assembling Dark Eldar in my dreams and I knew I was dreaming so I decided to get up and do it for real. I spent yesterday building this ravager. I have a feeling I am going to be going through a lot of boxes of Wytches. I broke into the box of Wytches when building this to replace the bow gunner and the helmsman with Wytch bodies, and I stole the cool helmets out of the Wytch box for the side gunners heads.

 It is still in a lot of pieces because I will glue some of it together after painting. I assume this is going to be a painting nightmare already so anything to make it easier right. I have left all the moveable pieces unglued so it is fully functional, its nifty how many moving parts there are in this kit. I'm really excited about this newly re-vamped line of miniatures since I've really been only biding my time till they come out. I have been pining for dark Eldar since I started with this hobby, But I was advised by Ricalope to wait till the new codex and line of minis came out, He was right, It is worth the wait. I am glad I have more experience as a hobbyist now as otherwise I would have destroyed these delicate pieces. I didn't use 5 of the warriors that came in this kit and I'm sure I'm going to need another one, then I'll have 10 warriors at this rate I won't need to buy any ever, especially since I wasn't planing on it. This kit has a ton of extra bits and on a bacon and cheese awesome scale it is uber bacon and cheesy. I am so Excited!
