This is where the shadowfield should be as the Wych dracite has the wyches as free wounds and has the 4+ invul in CC to help her out. The archon just has drazhar and 4 incubi to get through may seem alot but with even wopund allocation he still may be hit easily against enemies with many attacks - he needs his 2+ invul save, also think about a trohpy rack - Ld10 is great in case the rare occasiion where you lose CC or need to take a LD test.

Wych Dracite (116 pts)
Agoniser; Wych Weapons; Combat Drug Dispenser; Shadow Field

:elites:

Wyches (191 pts)
Wych Weapons; Blaster x2;
Succubus; Agoniser; Wych Weapons; Plasma Grenades(Squad))
Raider; Dark Lance x1

How many wyches - people may wish to know - yes we can do math but that's wasting time :p, other than that looks good I don't use blasters as thbat's Ravagers and sniper squads jobs to pop tanks and splinter pistols can still damage squads just before CC.

:troops:

Raider Squad (149 pts)
5x RaiderS; Blaster; Splinter Cannon
Sybarite; Agoniser
Raider, Dark Lance; Horrorfex

Raider Squad (134 pts)
5x Raider Squad; Blaster; Splinter Cannon
Sybarite; Poison Blades
Raider; Dark Lance; Horrorfex

Raider Squad (134 pts)
5x Raider Squad; Blaster; Splinter Cannon
Sybarite; Poison Blades
Raider; Dark Lance; Horrorfex

To few in numbers for this layout - also horrofexes only work well with trophy racks on the raiders too, in this case just drop them, pinning is sooooooo hard to do in this game with the way LD works now!


Warrior Squad (110 pts)
10x Warriors; Blaster x2; Dark Lance x2

Warrior Squad (110 pts)
10x Warriors; Blaster x2; Dark Lance x2

Warrior Squad (110 pts)
10x Warriors; Blaster x2; Dark Lance x2

I see the point of putting more high S and low Ap guns here for closer shot outs that do occur but maybe just have 2 squads like this saving a few points for more warriors in the raider squads - reason when an enemy gets close they will shoot you out and Dsing Terminators can tyake the fire thses guys dih out easily and shoot you up something nasty and usually cause a board run off.

:fa:

Reaver Jetbike Squad (186 pts)
4x Jetbike; Blaster x2
Succubus; Tormentor Helm; Punisher

Looks goo, be careful as it is a small group - if you run this either think about going for 2 more bikes or cut down to 3 and just go blasters for the annoying tank buster squad- these guys can saok up that much need fire from a dangerous squad. Though test it out lke this to see how they do but if worse comes to worse remove the succubus you want the blaster shots!

Ravager (125 pts)
Dark Lance x3; Nightshields

Ravager (140 pts)
Disintegrator x3; Nightshields

Ravager (140 pts)
Disintegrator x3; Nightshields

I have to assume the Wyche drachite goes with the raider squad? i have to agree on the shadow field is an Archon bit of equipment, not a Wyche who gets the 4+ ward when she leaps into combat.

5 man raider squads are too small. They should be ten man squads.

The Blasters in the lance squads are...perhaps overkill. If the enemy is that close to a walking Dark Eldar squad, you're in deep trouble anyway, usually. I prefer (gasp) shredders in this situation, cause likely they're infantry getting close, and patterns make me happy.

People like to DP dreads........id rather have 4 S8 AP2 lance weapons than just 2. for 10 points its worth it....Makes them more concerned when DSing those dreads if they want them ore than just one turn.

Over all i liek the list....just for those 5 man raider squads i would have no upgrades......all they are is a DL delievry system...shouldnt cost more than 110pts for them. You need wariors in your retinue. You need something to soak up wounds when that raider goes down.....because 8/10 times it will get shot down.
