I reckon this has happened soon enough that the dark eldar drugs are still in his system. That or the wound isn't fatal in the first place. I mean if Skraat is going to die, I would guess it would be going out in a blaze of glory taking down a bio-titan or some such.
The first picture isn't very good.
The eldar stands in an unnatural pose, the hips facing the enemy but the upper body turned sideways. Also, he's holding his battle-staff in an unpractical way: Held like this, with both hands close the middle, your blows are fast but very weak.
And Skraat's pose doesn't look good either, but staged, twisted and unnatural. 1. He stroke with both blades at the same time, which is a bullshit-maneuver. 2. He uses the wrong foot (the right one) to turn himself back into a battle-ready position. This would leave his right side wide open to an attack.
AND he's totally out of proportion: He's easily taller than an armoured Space Marine.
In fact he is bigger than an armoured space marine. But yeah, i agree the first picture sucks, but when you get stuck with something, the best you can do is just skip it as good as you can and keep on with other things.And i really got stuck with this strip. :P
Skraat is NOT having a good day
However it was quite sporting of that Exarch to not turn on the powerfield on her Executioner. It would have sliced through Skraat's knives on the first parry and they have sentimental value.
so why is it that Shraat can beat a bunch of dark eldar, but gets beaten by a single eldar, who are no were near as good as rak eldar when it come to fighting (we just have a tendency to use the most painful way of killing things as possible)
Pyrak, actually, a Banshee will SLAUGHTER anything with a 3+ armor save or up because of their masks. The only problem is GETTING INTO COMBAT, YOU LAZY GITS. It's amazing how the new editions nerfed melee eldar into oblivion.
You people need to visit Commorragh, lets see how long you live (five seconds if your luck, longer if your really that good, or get captured which than have a nice rest of your life as a slave or whatever happens to you).
