Hi folks! I'm thinking about putting together a list for a local event. It's narrative, so I'm bringing my pre-codex Dark Eldar--but it's also a tournament, so I want to bring something optimized given the event restrictions.

Those restrictions are:
- 1250 points, battleforged
- army must consist of either a single patrol or battalion detachment
- warlord must be an unnamed HQ
- army can contain only one of each unit EXCLUDING troops and transports
- no units with the "titantic" keyword

My first impulse is to start off with:

HQ
Haemonculus, electrocorrosive whip, Parasite's kiss, Hatred Eternal (warlord)

TROOPS
3x 5 Kabalite warriors (1 w/ blaster), in a basic venom

What do you all think?

And what else might you include?
(1) Dark Lance spam? (e.g., 1 ravager, 1 razorwing, 1 unit of 5 scourges w/ 4 dark lance, 1 unit of blasterborn)
(2) Webway shenanigans? (e.g., 5-10 mandrakes; 10 deep-striking Incubi, 20 Wyches)
(3) Coven units for T5+ spam? (e.g., wracks, grots)
(4) Other strong units? (e.g., voidraven, big unit of sslyth?)

Give me your creativity! Theorycrafting welcome!

I would be tempted to add an archon in to make it a Battalion for the extra CP. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't hatred eternal only available to Archons? Definitely take a razorwing jetfighter, some dark lance scourges and a ravager, and I like the idea of 10 Incubi webwaying in on turn 2 or 3.

@Kelevra711 I believe it is available to all Drukhari warlords, however, Blood Dancer is specific to Wych Cults and Master Regenesist is specific to covens.

@CaptainCarrots take an Archon with a Power sword or Agoniser. They're less than 60 points with that kit and the extra 3 command points you get from making it into a battalion are worth the cost alone. Have him back up your Haemonculus.
