Hey I want to break out my old Dark Eldar, but I don't really want to use them as Dark Eldar because the Eldar codex is way better at this point in time. I made a guardian list, but I wanted to use the support batteries, though Dark Eldar don't really have those. So I was wondering if anyone could throw some ideas out there for a cheap conversion, don't really want to spend near $25 per weapon.

Thanks!

Just use them as allies. Eldar HQs can be fairly cheap (Autarch) and you can still set up some sort of defense that compliments your Dark Eldar units.

I'd second using Dark Eldar with Eldar allies. Except get a farseer for the HQ, and put him in a 20 man warrior squad with a haemonculus. The farseer will compliment your shooting and the haemi gives the big squad feel no pain. A farseer and a haemi generally run about the same price as a single tooled up archon. As far as conversions, I might suggest going to one of those cheap plastic jewelry shops you see at Malls, that cater to the young girls. Get some fake plastic gems and use them as a focal point on the send of some gun looking thing or make a tube with plasticard. You could slice up some old jet bikes or something for a base. How good it will look will depend on what you got spare in your bitz box.
