Default 750 Pt New Dark Eldar Player

A friend of mine is thinking of starting a Dark Eldar Army. This is the list he's looking at. As I don't play Dark Eldar, nor have I ever played against them, I wanted to get Heresy's opinion on the list. Oh, we play 750pt battles, and there's a variety of Armies, so I guess this is supposed to be an All Comers list


HQ
Archon -75
Venom Blade
Ghostplate Armor

Troops
Kabal Warrior Sq 1 - 230
-10 Warriors
-Sybarite
-Dark Lance
-Blaster
Raider
-Chain Snares
-Splinter Racks
-Flickerfield

Kabal Warrior Sq 2 - 205
10 Warriors
-Sybarite
-Splinter Cannon
-Shredder
Raider
-Chain Snares
-Splinter Racks
-Flickerfield

ELITES
Incubi - 240
5 Incubi
-Klaivex
-Demiklaives
-Onslaught
Raider
-Chain Snares
-Flickerfield

Archon rides with Incubi, everything is mobile, and does damage just by traveling over troops. 4 Dark Lance shots to pop transports.

Thoughts, critiques please.

Oh, and as he hasn't bought any of the models yet, feel free to deviate from the list, and I'll present it to him.

I would equip the Archon with Agoniser, combat drugs and shadow field. That's my normal Archon.

Warriors+Lance in a Raider is not so good. You can't shoot the lance if the Raider moved!

Normally, you don't need the sybarite.

You also could drop the Chain-snails.

I would play 10 warriors with a splinter cannon in a raider with splinter racks and flickerfield. Cheap and very effektiv against armies like Orks.

I don't think you need Inccubi at 750pts! I also would prefer Wyches in the Raiders.


The list would then look like this:


*************** 1 HQ ***************

Archon
- 1 x Agoniser
- Combat Drugs
- Shadow Field
- - - > 120 pts


*************** 3 Troops ***************

Kabalite Warriors
10 Warriors
- 1 x Splintercannon
+ - Raider
- Dark Lance
- Splinter racks
- Flickerfield
- - - > 180 Pts

Wyches
10 Wyches
- 2 x Razorflails
+ Hekatrix
- Agoniser
+ - Raider
- Dark Lance
- Flickerfield
- - - > 220 pts

Wyches
9 Wyches
- 1 x Razorflails
+ Hekatrix
- Agoniser
+ - Raider
- Dark Lance
- Flickerfield
- - - > 200 pts

--------> 720 pts


Now you still have 30 pts left. You could buy Haywire grenades for the Wyches or invest it in more equipment, your choice.

Are wyches better for Dark Eldar in a small points game?

There is nothing wrong with using incubi in a small game, they are very effective against most oponents (actually not great against wyches though) Don;t bother with the klaivex and upgrades for this small a squad, better just to take another incubi.
Wyches are ok as they aren't very expensive and as troops, can hold an objective. Their 4+ invul save is nice against power weapons but unlikely to see many of those pw in such small games. The incubi save is much better.
I like the agonizer better as well. Shadowfield is pretty nice. In this small a game though I probably would opt for homunculous with liquifier for the fnp on a squad (and for me that would probably the incubi)
Also, don't really need the doo-dads on the raiders, since the raiders are really made of paper and are unlikely to last long. (Seriously, bolters will bring them down.)
