  1. Cool! Looks like the artist is using the "flat-space technology: dimension compressing" holster concept from the movie Ultraviolet (one of the few good things from that movie) where only the handgrip protrudes and the rest of the weapon is held in a pocket universe.

    Fits perfectly with the Dark Eldar mastery of portal technology.

  2. I had figured that was a knife, but your flat space technology would be much cooler.

  3. A knife would be cooler. With what would he skin his enemies? You can't cut the ears, noses and lips from your kills with a pocket universe.

  4. @TheFool144 - That's what the big fish hook is for! :)

    Anywho, there is definitely source lighting glow emanating from that disc so it stands to reason it's a portal holster.

    What is in it is open to interpretation.

  5. Trent, that glow isn't emanting from the disc, the disc is reflecting a light source coming from Vect's left; there's a similar glow running down nearly his entire left side. So Natfka and Fool have the right of it, it's more likely a knife.

  6. I just the think the litheness and athletic appearance of the Dark Eldar is lacking in this piece of art. It is after the main reason for their cruel beauty and is evident in the Codex's art and the models.
