You get the picture. Well...obviously you don't, because I didn't take any...
Oh...go on then, you little scamps.
Let me talk to you a little bit about gaming accessories. The Dark Eldar have a unique system called "pain tokens", where they get benefits for wiping out enemy units. There are three levels of pain tokens so keeping track of what pain tokens each units have what is quite important.
Games Workshop don't currently provide any tokens for gaming use. They do make several suggestions on their website, although none of these really appealed to me.
I found these models, however, fairly cheap. They're Cryx "soul tokens" from Warmachine. I think they're extremely cool. I was tempted to paint them different colours to represent each "level" of pain token, but decided that may look a bit tacky and slow things down. So Instead I'll just use them as individual pain tokens. These are quite rough, but they'll do for now. I've got about 20 all for £8 and painted identical, so my pain token needs are fulfilled for now!
As you know, theme is boss with me. When I ran daemons I ran a set of dice with the same colour (I honestly can't remember whether the dice came first of the daemons scheme, but I did get some bitching dark grey dice with golden spots from my local gaming shop - Something Wicked, in Huddersfield).
This army was no different. I like armies with strong themes that people have taken time, effort and put a little bit of themselves into (hurhur!). So, I like to try and add a little bit of theme to my lists. This runs to my dice as well!
Arf, I jest. But you wouldn't believe how many of these buggers I've lost over the years. Shame my army hardly has any huge pie plates to drop on the enemy...
And finally, I've acquired some excellent objective markers. The dark eldar are cruel beyond redemption - their savagery knows no bounds. The gladiatorial arenas need constant supplies of fresh warriors for the wyches to hone their skills on. The haemonculi require fresh samples to perfect their flesh craft on, and Archons require slaves to torment and do their bidding.
Pray they don't take you alive...
