Crimson Hunters are trained to become exceptional pilots, endlessly practicing all sorts of maneuvers as well as marksmanship. The Crimson Hunter'a Nightshades are armed with two Bright Lances and a Pulse Laser. The Crimson Hunters are few in number, though their Shrines are becoming more widespread. These temples of Khaine are unlike any other for they are tunnel-like collections of transparent atrium's that float around the periphery of their Craftworlds, allowing the Crimson Hunters and their recruits to freely train in their aircraft.
Crimson Hunter Exarch
A Crimson Hunter shrine is led by an Exarch. They are the most accomplished of all Eldar pilots who have traveled so far down the Path of the Warrior that they can no longer turn from that path to follow another. Crimson Hunter Exarchs often have different weapons on their planes such as substituting the plane's Bright Lances for Star Cannons.
