I can see your going for a DS force so here are the following mods I would make:

1. Drop all night shields not worth it if your going in close
2. Give the archon Combat drugs and Shadowfield
3. Drop the Incubi master
4. Haemonculi give scissorhands (the destruction you mentioned keep also it's called a destructor )
5. Give the sybarites in the raider squads poison blades and swap out the dark lance the warriors are holding for a splinter cannons
6. If you have the points get another raider squad if you have around 200pts left over take 2 sniper squads

Other than that looks very interesting

HQ: Archon w/ Retinue = 455
Archon w/ Punisher, Tormentor Helm, Trophy Rack, Plasma Grenades, Shadow Field, Combat drugs
Retinue - 9 Incubi with Plasma Grenades
Raider - Screaming Jets

HQ: Haemonculi = 220
Haemonculi w/ Destructor and Scissor Hand
7 Grotesques
Raider w/ Screaming Jets

HQ: Haemonculi = 220

This revison I quickly did is 1988pts and still gives you what you need but more incubi and a better equip archon.

If I was to change this anymore I would drop and Haemonculi squad and add another troop choice in giving you 4 troops instead of 3 then you will be able to add in another grotesque in each of the remaing grotesque squads this then leaves the list at 1974 points giving which I would spend 15 onmaking one ravager a disintegrator ravager leaving you with 11 points remaining. - No need to double post, my friend! - Katie D

Only change to Blue Ligers list is i'd add the Animus Vitae to the Archon, that takes you to 2003 points.

Not sure putting screaming jets on Ravagers is a good idea. I'd rather hold them in reserve. That way, they can shoot 'over' the units that arrive mid-table.

I will look into these suggestions, still rather new with Dark Eldar. I just knew comming in that I wanted to get as many dark lances on the field as possible (I love dark lances, but not when used against me)

And thanks Blue Liger for noticing what I was going for. I know its Destructor, I guess I was tired last night when I was going to sleep.

What is the point of this Animus Vitae? I keep on seeing you suggesting it Orochi, maybe you could explain why.

I'd only ever put one on a Punisher lord.

A lord of foot, armed with a Animus Vitae (+1S and WS after first kill), Punisher, Tormentor helm, Combat drugs and Shadowfield is a potential:
5 str6 no save attacks with re-rolls to hit (taking 3 upgrades on the Combat drugs btw; +1a, +1S and re-rolls to hit), At WS7, thus hitting most htings on 3s.
A lord wit hte same equipment on a jetbike has 5 str7 no save, re-roll to hit attacks. At WS7, thus hitting most htings on 3s.
These high strength lords are ideal for Anti HQ and TEQs. Some larger things, aka ork nobz and Tyranids will suffer aswell.

Although, a cheaper lord with an Agonsier, CCD, shadowfield and splinter pistol is a btter buy. hovering around 150 points.

Its a matter of preference to be honest

Okay, have my list edited with some of the changes suggested. I am wanting to keep this a deep strike force, because I rather love the ability to randomly pop up and scare the enemy, since he does not know what is coming or where. Guess I love that from playing daemons so much.

Looks nice, I like the grotesque units as when you deep strike the enemy won't know what to shoot at, plus the fact most dont realise that grotesques have a special feel no pain rule so they if they dont ask dont say, grotesques are one of the may banes of the IG and ork army as only thier heavy guns can do something and if the heavy guns are firing at your grotesques it means your other riaders are still alive.

That is why I like them so. This army seems to make so much sense to my and my playstyle. I hope the great minds of other Dark Eldar Archons agree with my tactics.

Armies good. Its nice to see a support unit that isn't Wyches.

As Blue Liger said, If people don't know the DE rules, only tell them if they ask.

I'd like to play this list myself...with my own Dark Eldar.
