Hello habitants of Commorragh, in february I bought the PoisonBlade Raiding Force (the battleforce box), and now and then I've been buying other stuff I like, right now, I have:
HQ 1xArchon 1xDrazhar 1xHaemonculos Troop 20xKabalites 5xWracks Elites 5xGrotesques Heavy Support 1xRavager 2xTalos (magnetized so I can play them like Cronos) Flyer 1xRazorwing Jetfighter Transport 1xRaider 1xVenom
So, with all that, I did some lists but I cant see a good synergy to make with that, can you help me make one? (1500 pts)

You will want to try to build a triple patrol (called a Realspace Raiding Force, which is Dark Eldar only). Based on your troops, it would probably be 2x Kabals and a Coven
Archon 5 Warriors
Drazhar 5 Warriors
Haemonculus 5 Wracks
(this is about 500 points)
Then you throw in some flavor. You have a good number of Grotesques and Talos. Use all of those. Ravager is also great. Razorwing can do some work, same with your two transports.
That is about another 1000 points. That would roughly be your list.
Make sure you remember to use our Power From Pain table for the re-roll charges on Turn 2 and the 2+ WS on Turn 3 (especially for your Coven monsters). Also try to write down our 5-6 good stratagems before the battle so you remember those too (they are here in the Forum somewhere).
Then you need to get in some practice! Dont get discouraged if you lose your first 3-4 games, DE is a very hard army to play. You need to lose a few games so you learn what NOT to do

Moving this to Army Lists as not a rules question - Count Adhemar
You have been weighed, you have been measured, and you have been found wanting. In what world could you possibly beat me?

and don't forget to play the objectives before even thinking on going face to face with the opponent. I don't know what you will face, but as of late our firepower is not that great, but our speed is the key!

I edit the post, I only have 5 grotesques, I need to use all the minis I have ( I think), also, thank you, I'm always picking engaged on all fronts bc we have a lot of mobility and is easy to get 3 points every round, I strugle a bit woth the other 2. I thought about 1 kabal of the black heart and a flayed skull, also a prophets of flesh to get a flesh wall. I dont know where to put the raider and venom, in flayed skull or black heart.
Thanks for the advices, I've already play against Iron Hands (pretty tanky army), custodes (impossible to kill with poison weopons ), and chaos (this one was pretty easy, I was first and kill about 500 points in my first turn)

5 Grots are fine, just throw in your transports. I would recomend your next purchases to be either more Grots (generally converted from other GW miniatures) or more Venoms. Both work best once you reach a "saturation point". Grots are probably better because they dont give up secondaries (2VP per venom if the enemy chooses Bring It Down).
All 3 of those armies HATE our Disintegration Cannons that come on the Raider and Ravager. Make sure you are bringing as many as possible to the party
