Ive been playing 40k on and off since y2k. I recently picked up a dark eldar army and as of tonight I've played 3 games in 7th edition. This is an 1850 point list based on the 1500 point list that won my first game in 7th. Basically I added some flyers and mixed things up. Taking advice I've gathered from around the dark city this is what I came up with and I think I will do well in my next game. C&c welcome but I'm not likely to change anything until after a few more games. However if there's some hard counters to this list, I would appreciate hearing about them.



-Archon/agoniser, webway portal, animus vitae
-5 kabalites/raider, aethersails

-5 trueborn/4 shredders(suicide deepstrike/ archon)

-5 scourges/4 haywire blasters

-3 reavers/ arena champion, agoniser, caltrops(harassment)
- Razorwing
- Ravager/3 darklances
- Voidraven/2 dark scythes, 4 shatter field missiles

Drop the Agoniser, take a Blaster, let him hang out with scourges for maximum tank assault. Or, alternatively, leave him with a splinter pistol and Parasite's Kiss, take a Venom and 4 Medusae, watch your opponents cry when you slap his infantry blobs with 4 Assult 1 AP3 S4 flamers, 13 4+ poison shot and a master-crafted 2+ poison shot from your Archon.

Also, which units start on board? Every single unit can come from DP or Reserves, so unless you plan to have half the army on board Turn 1, chances are a sesoned player will easily table you.

If you take Kabalites in a Raider, take 10, Night Shields and Splinter Racks, get tons of Twin-Linked Splinter shots. Or exchange Raider for a Venom if you want a 5 man squads.

Splinter Cannons are a waste of points on scourges - you move, effectively cutting out 8 shots and 12 inches of range. Better to take more kabalites in Venoms.

3 Reavers is not harassment, its death in overwatch.

Skip the Voidraven, take the second Razorwing. Or drop the Razorwing and take a Ravager. Single Razorwing is meh and Voidraven is kinda overpriced.

TLDR: I suggest skiping the raven and reavers, adding some Talos or a Ravager for T1 staying power and droping the cannons on Scourges, picking more Kabalites. Kit the Archon differently or skip him alltogether and exchange for a Lhamean in a Venom for mandatory HQ choice.

Hello you sound like a redditor. Nothing wrong with tgat , just my observation. So back to the point. The suicide deep striking unit is nice because it has decent anti infantry firepower, it also has the potential to buff my whole army and screams assault me when I deep strike next to your blob. He has an agoniser because a few guys in my local meta think the dark eldar fold like chairs in close comabt.. In every game I've played with my splinter cannon scourges they never moved and brought some serious pain. The reavers are great because its a small squad less than 100 points that can move quickly across the board and has the potential to slaughter 5 man squads of mehreens and if you want them gone your going to spend way more than 100 points of shooting to do so. The 5 man kabalite squads are something I haven't tried yet but the idea is that they're fast moving low threat objective hunters.the razorwing has been kinda meh but one day I'm sure it will shine. The void raven on the other hand has been great. The psychological effect is massive. Everyone has thought twice about deepstriking within 36" of my table edge. the one guy that didnt had an entire unit deleted from the game during my movement and then the voidraven still blew the crap out of his front line with its missiles.

Everything except the suicide squad and the flyers start in play
If I'm going first or second with nightfighting. If I go second and there's no night fighting(hasent happened to my yet with this army) I'm going to try deep striking everything but I don't really know how that works.
