So yeah. I've never actually played against dark eldar before, let alone with my nids. One of my buddies just bought around 7k points off of ebay so he's not exactly a veteran DE player but still I'm not really sure what to bring. I know I should avoid monstrous creatures, seeing as poison wont care about my toughness. I dont have a list currently but this is what I'm thinking of doing. Keep in mind I literally have no idea what he will bring.

HQ: Torn between flyrant and morty. the flyrant should be harder to hit and give me some AA, but morty is cheaper and has his own benefits.

Elites: I'm thinking podding zoans and venomthropes

Fast attack: adrenal gland gargoyles. spam the hell out of them. They're fast and can easily get the 2-3 glances needed to down a skimmer by shooting and CC. Maybe a harpie? <--- thoughts on this?

Troops: ugh, no idea. On one hand I'm thinking podding devil gaunts, to glance stuff but on the other hand thats really expensive and I want to keep things cheap.

Heavy support: I've heard biovores are good against DE, after you get them out of the transport just bomb them. Dunno what else.

So those are my thoughts. Can something like this work?

edit: thrown together a rough list. key word rough.

Flyrant, devs, hive commander 285
20 hormagaunts + adrenal 160
20 hormagaunts + adrenal 160
16 devilgaunts 160 (outflanking)
20 gargoyles + adrenal 140
20 gargoyles + adrenal 140
20 gargoyles + adrenal 140
2 zoans, pod 160
2 zoans, pod 160
total: 1505

Thoughts?

i would get rid of the gargoyles, and replace one set with 3/4 shrike with laswhips, expensive but very effective you just need to protect them alittle bit.
i would spend point on hivegaurd, their guns ignore cover so no jink(if hes De he should be bringing alot of skimmers.
also 2 mawlocs work very well with the doom o malantai. and at 1500 point you should have a doom in. you dont need to pay for the t/guants pay for a tevigon and get them that way.
nid really are still a good army, i run mine all CC.
