Hi guys!
Some work buddies and myself have recently decided to get into 40k and ive gone for DE.
Id sorta (not really) settled on the following for a beginner 500pt list;

HQ -
Archon w/ Blaster, Haywire Grenades
Troops -
9x Kabalite Warrior (and the Archon) in Raider w/ Dark Lance, Splinter Racks
5x Kabalite Warrior in Venom w/ Splinter Cannon
5x Kabalite Warrior in Venom w/ Splinter Cannon
Fast Attack -
3x Reaver w/ Heat Lance

With the basic idea being to have everybody in a transport, keep moving and shoot at stuff. Mainly playing Space Marines in that makes a difference at this size.

Thing is, it was then decided that our first few games are gonna be bumped to 600pts and im not exactly sure where those extra 100pts would be best spent?

Any and all advice is appreciated!

If you could get 20 extra points, maybe take 5 scourges with Haywire Blaster? You could get rid of the reaver heat Lance since you'll have to jink anyway.

You could also get rid of the Grenade of the Archon...

I mostly agree with metal on this one, except that I'd go ravager instead of scourges since mech is more powerful the lower you are on points, and dark lances are mor effective against non-mech too. This is what I'd do:

Add 1 Kabalite warrior to the larger squad to bring it to 10 to take advantage of the splinter racks. Add night shields and subtract the dark lance since you're going to jink every time they're shot at to protect the warriors inside(they don't have to snapfire when you jink). Drop the reavers entirely. Then:

Spend 125 points on a triple-lance ravager.
Spend 15 points giving a kabalite warrior squad a blaster.
Spend 5 points to swap that squad's venom for a raider with night shields. (Archon goes here)
Spend 5 points putting a chain snare on one of the raiders.

That would put you right at 600 points.

This is what the list looks like:

HQ -
Archon w/ Blaster & haywire grenades
Troops -
10x Kabalite Warrior in Raider w/ Splinter Racks, night shield, & chain snares
5x Kabalite Warrior w/ blaster in raider w/ night shield (Archon goes here)
5x Kabalite Warrior in Venom w/ Splinter Cannon
Heavy Support -
1 Ravager w/ 3 Dark Lances

I suspect the Archon was with the 9 Kabalite Raider - perhaps @Saito09 does not have 2 Raiders. If you do, definitely consider BetrayTheWorld's suggestions as it's tops. If you're limited to a single Raider, I'd keep it a 9 man strong Raider so the Archon can tag along.

Cool, thanks for the tips.
Managed to score an extra raider on ebay for cheap so looks like its going that way.
Now just gotta find a ravager and a venom...

You can do much better for an HQ than an archon with a blaster. If you want a shooty warlord than you should just upgrade a warrior to a sergeant (can't recall name right now). Our HQ s are better at CC than shooting
