Default New DE Player 1750pt

So Im starting up a Dark Eldar army but unfortunately I don't have much experience with the army. Some help with my list then?

HQ

Haemonculus - (liquifier gun) = 60
Haemonculus - (liquifier gun) = 60

ELITE
4 True Born - (3 blasters, raider, shock prow, FF, torment launchers) = 173
4 True Born - (3 blasters, raider, shock prow, FF, torment launchers) = 173

TROOPS
5 warriors - (blaster, venom + SC) = 125
5 warriors - (blaster, venom + SC) = 125
5 warriors - (blaster, venom + SC) = 125
5 warriors - (blaster, venom + SC) = 125
9 Wyches - (net, HG, raider, shock prow, torment launchers, FF) = 198
9 Wyches - (net, HG, raider, shock prow, torment launchers, FF) = 198

HEAVY SUPPORT
Razorwing - (FF) = 155
Ravager - (FF) = 115
Ravager - (FF) = 115

= 1747

So that's it, what do you think? I suppose the idea is dark light spam with alot of mobility, a nice number of scoring units. I realise the more popular heavy support choice is 3 ravagers but I thought that I have plenty of dark light weapons so I wouldnt mind trading one in for some missiles.

Let me know what you think

Fairly straight forward venom spam list. Should be ok regardless of how much experience you have with it.

On the wyches, I would drop all of the Raider upgrades except the FF. Use the points and drop a wych if necessary to get a Hekatrix w/ agoniser for both squads. It'll help them win out in cc more than the other wyches. Think of wyches as an agoniser delivery system and tar-pit unit.

The Razorwing is Ok, but the Ravager is more reliable as AT. You should have enough AI with all of the venoms.

In my opinion, you have too many upgrades on your vehicles. I'd drop them all down to Flicker Field and as thephish said, you need to get your wych squads a hexatrix with an agoniser. It'll help a lot in combat and winning it. Otherwise, looks solid.

Yeah, drop most of the upgrades except for the flickers' from the Wyches Raiders.
Otherwise your list is fine, as has been said, a pretty solid (if boring) and typical Venom spam list.

I can live with dropping the torment grenade launchers on the raiders but I want to keep the shock prows. After some play testing I find the ability to be able to tank shock enemy units into clusters for the liquifier gun or tank shock units in such a way that they only get to attack with a handful of their models in CC after being shocked by 2 raiders to be just to awesome to drop for 5pts.

With regards to the hekatrix with agoniser, I realise that it could make a difference in CC but at 30pts im hesitant considering she doesn't have the best stat line. Regardless I admit to my experience being undesirable so I made some room for the agonisers

Revised list:

HQ

Haemonculus - (liquifier gun) = 60
Haemonculus - (liquifier gun) = 60

ELITE
3 True Born - (3 blasters, raider, FF) = 151
3 True Born - (3 blasters, raider, FF) = 151

TROOPS
5 warriors - (blaster, venom + SC) = 125
5 warriors - (blaster, venom + SC) = 125
5 warriors - (blaster, venom + SC) = 125
5 warriors - (blaster, venom + SC) = 125
8 Wyches - (net, HG, raider, shock prow, hekatrix with agoniser, FF) = 211
8 Wyches - (net, HG, raider, shock prow, hekatrix with agoniser, FF) = 211

HEAVY SUPPORT
Razorwing - (FF) = 155
Ravager - (FF) = 115
Ravager - (FF) = 115

= 1729
