So, thx for the comments & advice lols
Game is over with a DE win, but game was a mess with rules forgotten on both sides.
Things started pretty terribly, opponent brought Chronos in a Stalker & a Stormhawk!! Oh dear God but we're vulnerable to Anti-Air
The Shawk popped my HQ's Venom T1 & a Ravager T2, crippling the 2nd, thankfully he forgot to move it T3 so it crashed & burned, otherwise I'd have probably conceded/rage quit lol
Blaster/Blast Pistols are great this edition & I found the Ravagers to be greatly improved too, especially with an Archon providing rerolls. Flicker Field on the Venoms I had also under-rated.
Not sure about the Wyches, the Succubus did fine, but I might try a min. squad next time as a tax to take her instead next battle & squeeze some Reavers in.
Oh & Poison is surprisingly good too I think, no AP, but wounding on 4's & just ignoring higher toughness, really makes me want to fill a Raider with Warriors & keep asking my opponent to make saves
