Dark Eldar do not useTitans. My evidence? The first line of the blurb for the Ravager Titan Hunter boxed set for apocalypse on the GW website: "The Dark Eldar do not use the super-heavy war machines favored by other races, instead relying on their superior speed and maneuverability to achieve victory."

And yes, the craftworld Eldar move their titans through the Webway, there are numerous passageways suitable for transporting such behemoths.

So, forgeworld will be releasing a DE titan in about 3 months?

IMO, Dark Eldar don't have the support capabilities to build and maintain super-heavy warmachines or titans, even with slaves.

Eldar either use the webway to transport their titans, or where that's not possible, presumably land a transport ship like other races do.

A possible (although unlikely) alternative is a Bonesinger with a spare week or so creating one on site.

Do recall that temporary webway portals can be made, though it requires sending a ship to the place with a cadre of seers in the first place. It's extra effort and extra risk, but it allows the Eldar to get where they need to be.
