Aspect Armour is manufactured by the Eldar for use by their specialist Aspect Warriors. They use psychic engineering to construct a psycho-sensitive material which reacts instantly to movement by the wearer and moulds and reshapes itself to provide a tight fit, making it ideal for combat. It stiffens on impact much like Mesh Armour although it also includes further rigid plating to reinforce it further. Dark Reapers, Shining Spears, Striking Scorpions, Warp Spiders and Fire Dragons all have heavier plate armour for improved protection when compared to Dire Avengers, Howling Banshees and Swooping Hawks, each one needing the extra manoeuvrability lost when using heavier armour.
Heavy Aspect Armour incorporates thick armored plates but retain great flexibility, and is known to be among the best in the galaxy.
