NIGHTSHADE CLASS DESTROYERS
The Nightshade starships are astonishingly fast and highly manoeuvrable, able to deploy torpedoes anywhere they are required on the battlefield. Squadrons of Nightshade Destroyers include Blades of V'enna, Storm of Khaine, Flashing Death (See Starships; Karlaen Shadowbound).
The Night Spinner is a specialised development of the Falcon grav-tank. The Night Spinner gives long range supporting fire in the form of mono-filament clouds launched high into the air to drift down on the enemy, cutting them to ribbon. Night Spinners mount two larger versions of the Shadow Weaver support weapon with increased range (see Falcon; Grav-Tanks).
Nightwing Interceptors are the air superiority fighters of the Eldar army, equipped with long barrelled twin-linked shuriken cannons and bright lances. The Nightwings are able to outmanoeuvre even the swiftest of Imperial flyers with attack and cruising wing patterns, as well as disrupting enemy fire with image shattering holo fields (see Phoenix Bomber; Vampire).
Nuadhu 'Fireheart' is a Wild Rider Chieftain of Saim Hann. He rides into battle mounted on Alean, the Steed of Khaine, a Vyper with a custom build fighting platform that Nuadhu fights from (see Alean; Saim Hann; Vypers; Wild Riders).
