The Dark Eldar Voidraven is the big-bad when it comes to the Dark Eldar armoury, which might explain the price tag!
When it comes to armour, the Dark Eldar don't do tanks - everything is airborne - so the Voidraven is it in terms of killing power.
The model itself is very similar to the Razorwing, except bigger, badder and really a centrepiece for your army.
There are a lot of flat surfaces on the model, so if you painted it with the tail sections off you could get some really nice patterns.
This also includes two large clear sections for the bombardier section in the nose which are unusually large for a GW kit!
Now if you're a fan of pop culture, the Voidraven might look kind of familiar. Yes? Read on...!

~ WARNING -
I am not a photographer, so expect dodgy pictures below.
Both of those colour schemes are also very very impressive.
Masking shouldn't be a problem for painting - just put some water soluble glue on the bits you want to be clear and after you paint it up - peel them off.
The kit does come with a stand and also a plug (!!) in case you don't want it flying. That's all fine and good - but the Voidraven kit doesn't have any landing gear to sit on! Awkward...
There is also a decal sheet with all of the kabals from the Codex. Having seen the use of decals I wonder if they'll be sold separately?!
There's lots of room to really go to town on the paint job and it's sizeable enough to attract attention.
I think the real challenge will be not keeping it a big black blob - customized paint schemes and the like have to be explored or it's really a bit of a waste!
I do still think this could have been $95 instead of $115, but maybe the clear parts took it over the edge.
A real shame there wasn't a purely fighter variant in the kit (love a second option) where the nose was solid and had extra armament in it or maybe the two pilots in the front and the rear canopy covered over with a hatch. Just an idea!
