I came up with a competitive list to run at my local game shop since there has been an increase in competitiveness. I have changed it a bit from what I used to run. I am unable to use Army Builder atm so I created this list by hand. Please feel free to take a look and let me know if there is anything illegal or just wrong with it. The point of the list is mobility and some flexibility towards all armies that I run into. General strategy is flanking and interrupting enemy strategy. Thanks!

HQ
Archon -157pts
-Agoniser
-Shadow Field
-Combat Drugs
-Hellion Skyboard
-Tormentor Helm
-Hell Mask
-Plasma Grenades
(Lots of gear but flys around and harasses the big baddies like Daemon Princes and Wraithlords. Also can provide CC support for anyone who needs it)

Elite
Wyches x10 -228pts
-Wych Weapons
-Plasma Grenades
Succubus
-Agoniser
-Tormentor Helm
-Raider w/Dark Lance

Wyches x10 -228pts
-Wych Weapons
-Plasma Grenades
Succubus
-Agoniser
-Tormentor Helm
-Raider w/Dark Lance
(Locks up annoying assault squads that would run through my lines like bad curry and waits for Raider squads to come in and help finish them off.)

Troop
Raider Squad -181pts
Warriors x10
-Shredder
-Splinter Cannon
Sybarite
-Power Weapon
-Tormentor Helm
-Raider w/Dark Lance

Raider Squad -181pts
Warriors x10
-Shredder
-Splinter Cannon
Sybarite
-Power Weapon
-Tormentor Helm
-Raider w/Dark Lance

Raider Squad -181pts
Warriors x10
-Shredder
-Splinter Cannon
Sybarite
-Power Weapon
-Tormentor Helm
-Raider w/Dark Lance
(These will scoot across the battlefield and help support the Wyches if needed or group up and tackle basic enemy infantry.)

Warrior Squad -186pts
Warriors x15
-Shredder x2
-Splinter Cannon x2
Sybarite
-Power Weapon
-Tormentor Helm

Warrior Squad -186pts
Warriors x15
-Shredder x2
-Splinter Cannon x2
Sybarite
-Power Weapon
-Tormentor Helm
(These will hike it up the field jumping in and out of cover to get into range and provide some fire support for assault units)

Heavy
Ravager -105pts
-Dark Lance x3

Ravager -105pts
-Dark Lance x3

Ravager -105pts
-Dark Lance x3
(Anti armor role. I took 3 and left the Dark Lances on them because I want the best chances to hit what I am shooting at. This forfeits the skimmer rule in order to fire all 3 lances but thats a risk I am willing to take.)

All together its 1843pts and has 89 models in it.

sweet list, the only thing I would do is to drop a Warrior Squad and 2 warriors of another unit of Wyches

Nice list! I like the composition. A couple of notes, though:

An Agoniser is one-handed, so you can swap out the T-Helms on your all of your characters for splinter pistols. Everyone but the Archon gets those for free, so that saves you almost 40 points.... or half a squad of Warriors. The T-Helm is for characters using Punishers or riding Jet Bikes.

The difference between an Agoniser and a Power Weapon is only 5 points, so considering that our DE have a puny S3, it's generally worth the investment. The only characters I give PWs to are those on jetbikes. You should swap out the PWs on your Warrior Sybarites for Aggies. Besides, nothing is cooler than killing a Daemon Prince or a Wraithlord with a S3, T3 Sybarite. :)

I love the Ravagers.. however, are you sure that you want 3 with all DLs? Due to the lack of DLs in your squads (kudos to you for not using sniper squads btw!), I can understand having one and then the other two with DL/x2 Dissies, but 9 DLs seems to be a bit of overkill. A Ravager with the DL/x2 Dissie configuration will crack open AV10/11 vehicles with almost the same reliability as the x3 DL config, but is a hell of a lot more effective against troops; especially if you consider that you can move 12" and still fire the DL and both Dissies (on low power).

Good luck!

The above comments are good; also... do you really need that many squads to be on Raiders?
Drop a raider, that will free up points for some more upgrades to other vehicles, more troops, upgrading Sybarites, and so on...
I'm also a fan of poisoned blades...

I prefer at least some DLs on warriors, too... but because of you have three Ravagers, I think that you'll be able to make it without them. It also makes your squads much more mobile and fluffy, which is what I really like about your list.

id drop the power weps on the syb and go for agonisers and get rid of the tormentor helms on them but keep on the dracon/archon as it gives him an extra attack

An archon on his own? Seems a bit reckless to me, though I've not used any HQs on their own yet...

my archon seems to flee as he is targeted like crazy and so cant rally as they leave the last man with him pain in the neck, he seems to go better by himself

I would give your archon a Jet bike my self, it will give you extra speed and monouvourability, to get you out of tight spots.
