|This article is about the Dark Eldar energy field; for the spacecraft shield, see Shadowfield.|
A Shadow Field is a rare defensive item used only by the most experienced Dark Eldar. It surrounds any person in a dark miasma of energy. It is incredibly difficult to wound a Dark Eldar utilising a Shadow Field, as the field absorbs almost all of the energy of an attack. However it is not indestructible and can be overloaded with enough damage, leaving the Dark Eldar vulnerable.
