Looks good, but I would lose the disintegrators on the raiders to give it more bite vs tanks. Maybe use the points to give the ravagers some protective vehicle upgrades.

If you what a shooty dark eldar army, I would go for units of warriors with 2 dark lance in each unit, in faver of raider squad. As well as this for each of the units of raider squad you could have unit of 10 warriors with 2 dark lances. what do you think.

The creatures of the Warp have but one trait with which you need concern yourself - their undying contempt for the Emperor. It is your task to quell the rebellion they preach, and the only sure way is to destroy them utterly.

Well personally, I dislike min/max sniper squads- or the like in any army. I played a very similar army against my friend's Chaos Daemons and absolutely ate him.

For being shooty, this is a solid list. Use your speed to attack only one flank at any given time, but be careful because there's usually little to prevent enemy retaliation.

Thus, I recommend Horrorfexes and Terrorfexes on Raiders, Syrabites, and the Haemonculi (in my shooty list, I have a Haemonculi in every Raider). That way, you can engage multiple enemy units or at least use the Raiders to pin other threatening units. Even marines fail a pinning test when they have to take twelve.

I recommend reconfiguring your HQ to have Haemonculi on board the Raiders- I don't think he is in a very safe position right now, especially being alone.

id drop 2 raider squads and max the other out to 8 men and then do 2 dark lance sniper squads and add some splinter cs into ur raiders this way u can still use the disintegators on them as u have some dark lance squads but you could then keep 2 with the dis and 2 with the dark lance
