The Dark Eldar are kindred of the ancient Eldar race, and are more dark and twisted in their ways. They are in favour of torture and murder, and acts of sin and violence. They are not a race to be taken lightly, as they will stop at nothing to destroy their enemies.
Though their numbers are inferior to that of Eldar armies, they are indeed quicker and stronger, with special abilities NOT to be reckoned with. They specialise in using soul to motivate their own armies and damage enemies. They are experts in demoralising enemies, as structures, infantry and vehicles have abilities that reduce enemy morale; in fact, all structures have this ability.
Using the Dark Eldar is not easy; but a victory with this race is more than rewarding.
Paraphrased from the Dark Eldar Codex; if there is any race that can truly be called evil, it is the Dark Eldar. Caring about nothing more than enslaving, murdering and torturing aliens, humans and mutants alike, any sane person would rather die than be captured by the monstrous Dark Eldar.
The Dark Eldar reside in a hidden realm in the Webway System, named Commorragh. It is a place filled with miserable darkness, and is just as darkly twisted as its rulers. From Commorragh, the Dark Eldar launch numerous piratical raids across the entirety of the galaxy in the Warhammer 40,000 universe. However these raids are different from that of rivalled races; rather than conquering or protecting planets and/or territory, they merely seek to cause mayhem, steal and pillage. Most important of all, however, they seek to capture new victims to take back to Commorragh. As stated by the Dark Eldar Codex, what happens to them once they arrive is best not contemplated.
Living for nothing but the misery of others, they are devious and vain, living for no others but themselves. They revel in inflicting pain and suffering, and find glory in causing destruction and death. With such dangerous personalities and intentions, and using such power and technology, the Dark Eldar are not a force to be taken lightly and are not to be reckoned with.
Asdrubael Vect is the leader and Supreme Lord of the Black Heart Kabal. He boasts strength and supremity over that of his many Archons who follow him, and though a player will not immediately see him on the battlefield, he will most likely always be there; in the form of his mass murdering wargear, the Dais of Destruction, a heavily modified Ravager with supreme firepower and defense. Upon the Dais of Destruction sits Vect, on his "throne", with 2 of his bodyguards standing beside him in the form of Incubi. 3 more Warriors stand upon it, operating the Dais' extremely powerful guns. A pilot also sits behind Vect, clearly controlling the driving part of the vehicle. Finally (although this is not very noticeable), 2 enslaved (only slightly dressed) human women, chained up by their feet and hands, lie in front of Vect. These are presumably chained for Vect's twisted form of entertainment.
