Red corsairs allies?
« on: December 13, 2013, 05:40:55 PM »
 Wanted to add allies to red corsairs, and my question will be. Which one, of the following factions, has more chance and potential (fluff wise), to be an allie to the red corsairs.

 Orcs or dark eldar?

 Just dont say guard. I never liked IG, and never will play them.

I would say Dark Eldar. The Corsairs are pirates, Alot of Dark Eldar are pirates and while they probably won't trust each other Pirates sometimes work together for a big score. Also I remember hearing that Hurons little pet the Hamadrya was a gift from a Eldar pirate, but I don't know how true that is as i can't remeber where i heard it.

True and if you want Orks thats cool, but I just think Dark eldar are better(probably cause my main force is  Eldar and Dark Eldar Pirates). I can see The Corsairs trying to manipulate some Ork Freebooters but I just think D. Eldar bring more to the table, more a meeting of untrustworthy equals. I guess it all depends on what kind of force your going for. I mean honestly Daemons make the best allies then I would say guard(you said you don't want them) but you put 2 out there and of those I would go with Dark Eldar. Just a opinion take from it what you will.

 I like both armies. Dark eldar for their cool models, and what they can bring to the table. And, as you said, they are pirates.
 And orcs, because they are orks ^^)

late post I know, but I agree with the guy above me, Dark Eldar would make the most sense. They're piratical and would compliment your force very nicely with lots of poisoned shots and lance shots, or even a flyer if you wanted one. Plus since both of you are very fast, it shouldn't be a problem keeping up with each other.

and I think there are piratical orks, at least there are in Dawn of War Retribution.
