Title says it all. I've tried a bunch of different arrangements such as heroes path, cad with 2 farseers and a RRD for AoM archon. RRD CAD CoCot, CoCot Heroes path grotesquerie, CoCot HP Dark Artisan. All with mixed results what do you guys think provides the most stable result at 1850 if you are limited to only 3 detachments?

Eldar CAD (Farseers, Hemlocks)
DE Allied detachment (Succubus w Armor, FA Raider)
Harlequin Cast of players Formation (Shadowseer w Mask, sit in Raider)

So basically you get -6 Ld if everything is in range and have tons of Warp Dice to cast multiple shrieks. The hemlocks flying D-weapons also come in handy.

Oh, to have a 3 detachment limit in my area!

Dark Eldar RRD + Eldar CAD + Harlequin Heroes Path formation - Put the Harlies each in their own Venom. A Succubus with the Armor of Misery is a given, as is one or two Farseers, either in Raiders with a support squad, or on bikes with Windriders. A Hemlock would also be a delightful addition.

Corpsethief Claw + Dark Artisan + Eldar AD/CAD (or Seer Council, depending on points value) - I personally prefer to wrap the CTC around the DA and run them up the board, allowing the CTC to benefit from the Cronos in addition to the DA warlord trait. (He should ALWAYS be your warlord.) Windrider Farseers can flit around to provide support where it's needed, either to other Eldar units or to the heavy hitters (who benefit from Invisibility like you wouldn't BELIEVE).

Dark Eldar CAD + Eldar CAD + Grotesquerie - I prefer to put my Grotesques in Raiders with Rams and charge them as ballistically as possible. Stick the Succubus in the squad the Haemonculus didn't go in to maximize the negative LD bubbles. Other Eldar of various moral alignments can follow up behind them. (Again, Windriders will help play catch up.)

I haven't optimized the list yet, but this completely wrecks opposing deathstars with the Doomstone. It's weak to flyers/heavy mech/interceptor. Some East Coast tourneys allow WWP+Gate of Infinity for scatterless deepstrike every turn. I have toyed with switching out the demons for seer council+Shadow Specters depending on Allies legality at the tournament. This list is the epitome of "Glass Cannon" though. You don't even need to cast psychic powers with the doomstone vs. a wolfstar. I have another version where I'm daemon heavy allying in various DE coven formations without Harlequins to make it ITC legal. Daemons are actually considered Desperate Allies with Dark Eldar according to the BRB.

Harlequin Masque: 905pts
1x Troupe W/Caress + haywire grenade
1x Troupe W/Haywire Grenade
1x Troupe W/Haywire Grenade
2x Starweaver
1x Voidreaver
1x Shadowseer W/ML 2 + Mask of Secrets
3x Shadowseer W/ML 2


Dark Eldar CAD: 560pts
1x Archon W/WWP + Armour of Misery + PGL + Shadowfield
1x Archon W/WWP + Archangel of Pain + PGL + Shadowfield
5x Warriors
5x Warriors
Raider w/Torment Grenade Launcher
Raider w/Torment Grenade Launcher

Daemon Allied Detachment: 379pts
2x Herald of Slaanesh W/ML 2 + Steed +rewards(Doomstone+Grimoire)
11X pink horrors

I "Phanta"size about instagibbing  a Stormsurge or Wraithknight with Mirror of Minds on a daily basis.

How you deal with vehicles and how do the doomstone work first combat round?

Of the three lists can you break down some of their strengths and weaknesses against varied opponents? I wouldn't mind a break down of each.
