Dark Eldar: Kabalite Warrior by Beckjann Dark Eldar: Kabalite Warrior by Beckjann
Kabalite Warriors are individuals that have excelled themselves enough to be noticed by a Sybarite. They are then granted increased status and inducted in to the warriors of the Kabal. The Kabal furnishes weapons and armour in return for lifetime service to the Kabal. Despite this, the new warrior generally has no loyalty to the Sybarite, seeing him or her as just another stepping stone to power in the Kabal. (Lexicanum)

The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy has this to say on the subject of the Dark Eldar. Stay away. No really stay away. No honestly just stay away, they are horrible.

This is pretty epic. Good to see the Eldar as a properly alien race, not just some tech'd up humans

You know.. Somehow I feel that Dark Eldar as a race should be very grateful that they got your devotion as an artist :D
I mean, you could have chosen absolutely any object to concentrate on while creating artworks, but you went this way, and now we have this enormously wonderful pieces of DE coming at us with an enviable regularity. That's really, really great!

You gotta have a real love for the matter to depict the most COMMON unit to look THAT BAD-ASS. Nice colors, great pose, neat rendering - he really looks slender and agile in this armor. And deadly, yep. :)

I absolutely love the pile of carnage, skulls, and bones the Kabalite is standing upon. Poised for the next target, they stand no chance when the fury of nine hells barrages down upon the enemy!

For the glory of Commorragh! Rip them limb from limb and scatter their innards across the land! Land that will soon be to our own benefit. :mwahaha:

Kabalite warriors are one of the coolest things ever, despite being the 'rank and file' if any Dark Eldar could ever be called that.

Even with all of the crazy units the DE employ, for some reason I feel that Kabalite Warriors are the most badass.
