Since you plan on putting the other 2 squads of Incubi in Raiders its probably best to go with more Incubi over klaivex and onslaught. Consistantly you will have more attacks with just another Incubi over a Klaivex which does give you 1 more and Onslaught might give you a few. You have to roll a 6 plus go through to hit and wound again with those extra attacks though.

Probably gonna want more DLs or just more anti-vehicle. With just 11 Dark Lances and 2 Blasters, Im not sure if thats gonna be enough against most armies these days. In my DE army I have about 19 DLs and 2 Blasters, but it is in a 2000pt army. I would just try to get another Ravager in your army in some way and that should help a lot.

I agree with getting another Ravager with 3x DLs. Also instead of having Huskblade and Soul Trap on your Archon, you could probably just have an Agoniser. This way your Strength doesn't matter.

I may try dropping the Klaivex+Onslaught for more Incubi. For some reason I hadn't though of that. I've had great success with my Archon load out. At 1st i wasn't feling the HB+ST, but I've found that with Combat Drugs, most times I roll something useful. Lately it's been +1S or+1A. That, and there are a ton of ICs/MCs running around in my gaming circle. At 2k I'd definitely run another AT unit, but once again, with the exception of maybe 2-3 IG players, the Mech armies in my area don't "scare: me enough to warrant 3 Ravagers at 1850.

Thanks for you advice guys. I will definitely test the more Incubi/Kaivex+Onslaught bit though.

also i'd consider getting rid of the haywire grenades from the wyches for 1 more wyche and 2 special weapons.

and the sybarite and blaster for additional warriors to make 10 and a splinter cannon or dark lance if you think you need more anti armour.

also i think 16 incubi is a little over kill because they are expensive, maybe just 10 would be alright so you have room for upgrades and another ravager.

Hey, it's Dark Eldar, nothin wrong with overkill,lol.
Actually, the Incubi are the center of my Kabal's background, hence why there are so many of em(I actually added more). The Wyches have the grenades for 2 reasons, (1)they are the only unit I'm taking that may be able to tie up Dreads and other walker types.(2)Just in case I DO need more anti-armour, the job will fall to them, as I'm not keen on running Warriors with DLs. Too, static for my tastes.
The premise of this army is to get in, hit REALLY hard, get the hell out, rinse and repeat.

So, with that. Here's the re-vamp.
