Never tried the raider rush myself yet so can't comment overall. However, here's a few points that spring to mind:

-Have you thought about dropping your squad sizes to 8? I don't think you would lose too much combat efficiency and across all your squads would save you 100 points!

-I personally don't like blasters in my wyches. I am terminal pessimist when it comes to charging into terrain, so always prefer to fleet my wyches to guarantee a charge.

-Maybe change a raider squad to wyches, for a bit more cc punch.

-Try horrorfexes. they don't sound too great, but with that many raiders you can be forcing people to make enough pinning checks (most would be at -1 or better) to make some fail. Could be a useful, and annoying 8) addition.

-Lastly, I'm personally not a big fan of the dissie ravagers. I much prefer to have 3 lances to increase my chances of killing the target.

Most of the points are just my personal preferences so feel free to try or ignore to taste :D

I'm not a fan of Lance Ravagers. My main opponents are Marines and Tyranids, so getting Marine Eaters and those multi-shot Dissies can kill MEQ and Hordes.

SM+Tyranids= Disintegrator= good choice.

However, get some Incubi!

And get rid of the blaster Wyches, they lose their true purpose.

And think of a Talos.

Truely.

In my experience (no matter how harsh they are criticized on the net) they are a virtual juggernaut. Somehow that 3+ seems to be a 1+. :p

And people are so concerned with it that they devout all their fire to it, buying time for the raiders, etc.

And if they dont, they will soon haveanother in-your-face CC unit to deal with.

Well, you've not seen my dice rolling for my ravagers. I need the three lances to guarantee at least one hit. Even then, the number of times I miss with all three is annoying!
