Default 10 man wych squad loadout

Hello all I've recently started dark eldar force and I was wondering what to give to a 10 man squad of wyches. They will be in a raider if that helps at all.

You can go a couple ways depending on what you usually fight and the role you want them to play. But in my opinion, the Hydra Guantlets are the best of their weapon choices. The others are good too but the potential bonus attacks from 2 sets in a 10 man squad is very nice. Haywire Grenades are great, especially if you face lots of high-armour walkers. But I don't think Wyches should go tank hunting too often. As for the Hekatrix; if you take one, go with the Venom Blade. Always wounding on a 2+, which is re-rollable vs T3(or T4 with Furious Charge) is nice to have around. Sure an Agoniser is AP 3 but on a model like a Wych, it is a bit expensive. I play my Dark Eldar on the theory of wound saturation. If you want a unit to simply cut through enemy armour, go with Incubi.

I'd echo Hydra Gauntlets (Venom Blade on the Hekatrix)

I've found that 5 Wyches in a Venom with Haywire Grenades is one of the Dark Eldar's cheapest means of tank-hunting, but a squad of 10 in a raider is best used for close combat.
