Default 2000pts Dark Eldar

Here is my current list I'm going to be playing with - but before the list a note:

I am aware this has no Haemonculi in it I'm wanting to give Lelith a go for the fun fact though in a more competitive list she would be replaced with 2 Haemonculi with Liquifier guns and one with a Crucible of Malediction and a Venom Blade the other with a Flesh Gauntlet.

The List: 2000pts Dark Eldar


HQ:

Archon - 170pts (goes with Incubi)
shadowfield
phantasm grenade launcher
combat drugs
soul trap
huskblade

Lelith - 175pts (goes with Bloodbrides)


Elites:

9 Bloobrides - 247pts
syren
agoniser
phantasm grenade launcher
3 hydra gauntlets
Raider Transport

7 Incubi - 214pts
Raider Transport


Troops:

10 Warriors - 175pts (x3)
blaster
splinter cannon
Raider Transport

10 Wracks - 100pts (objective holding and if need be asecond wave CC unit if a Raider survives)


Fast Attack:

10 Scourge - 244pts
2 heat lances


Heavy Support:

Ravager - 105pts

Ravager - 105pts

Ravager - 115pts
3 Disintegrators
Flickerfield

Total: 2000pts (On the Money!)

It's fine to spend this much on a character at this points level. Very strong in CC, he certainly will add bite to the incubi.

Lelith - 175pts (goes with Bloodbrides)
At least someone is giving her a go.

Elites:

9 Bloobrides - 247pts
syren
agoniser
phantasm grenade launcher
3 hydra gauntlets
Raider Transport
No Flickerfield? Considered Aethersails?

7 Incubi - 214pts
Raider Transport
Same as above. A 5++ for what we have to pay for could be a good investment? Considered Aethresails?


Troops:

10 Warriors - 175pts (x3)
blaster
splinter cannon
Raider Transport
Splinter racks or Flickerfields perhaps?

10 Wracks - 100pts (objective holding and if need be asecond wave CC unit if a Raider survives)
Pretty solid.

Fast Attack:

10 Scourge - 244pts
2 heat lances
Scourges over Reavers?


Heavy Support:

Ravager - 105pts

Ravager - 105pts

Ravager - 115pts
3 Disintegrators
Flickerfield
Flcikerfields on all Ravagers?

Total: 2000pts (On the Money!)
Take it you're resisting taking fancy toys on your vehicles? Appreciated that Raiders probably won;t last to long with or without them, but would it not be a good gambit to take them on your Ravagers and the lead raiders (Bloody maries and Incubus)?

If you dropped the Wracks and Lelith, you could upgrade the Archon into Vect, add FFs to the important vehicles and take a small unit of Trueborns with 2 Darklances to camp on the home objective.

And I probably am being overkeen with the Old Voidravens (old? he says), but thought about giving one of those a run?

I may drop a few Wracks to put FF's on the 2 lead Raiders, I'm going without fancy toys on most things as DE performed well without them before and since the stats haven't changed too much (really only gotten better) they should perform just as well as they did before.

Scourges - yes I love the new rules and with now an Assault 3 gun as standard I will use them against hordes of things to mow them down sufficiently.

I've seen leilith used, and iirc she's killing marines on 5+ in the old days it was on a 4+ and you could choose your drugs to boost attacks or WS.
I love the FF, its saved many of my raiders and ravagers recently, (talk sweetly to your dice ).
I'm just throwing units together at the moment to see what they perform like.
Anyone tried a court of the Archon in a venom?
Like the sky boards but they died in CC when I was trying out the 'Drag and drop' rule.
The Talos and its little pal seem to work well, and the wwp has been priced sensibly, just a shame there seem to be fewer characters that can use it now.
BL what models are you using to represent Wracks?

Wracks can't be troops unless you have a haemonculus in your HQ

Space Marines, PREPARE FOR GLORY!!!
