I'm going to play a few thousand point games this week, which will be my first games in over 10 years! Here's what I'm planning on fielding, what do you think?

Edit: I made some modifications based on feedback:

Removed both 5-man squads of kabalites and mandrakes and replaced with an additional squad of incubi and a squad of scourges with blasters for some anti-horde capabilities. Thoughts?

What is the point of the Archon in this list? I dont see anything you will be buffing (Ravagers are not Core to my knowledge).

Otherwise this looks like a pretty fun list. At smaller games/boards, punchy units hold more value IMHO. But if I was to bring Kabal, it would be something along these lines (maybe 1 more squad of Incubi).

You make some really good points about the Archon and maybe benefiting from some more punchy units. I modified the Archon to be more combat oriented, removed both 5 man kabalite squads and the mandrakes and replaced with an additional squad of incubi and a squad of scourges with blasters. What do you think?

Mandrakes are actually pretty important, especially at lower games.

At lower games, you tend to get more "skew" lists, because there are less resources to be ballanced. One of the Skew lists involves infiltrating/summoning a bunch of units 9" away for a Turn 1 charge. Mandrakes stop this by infiltrating 9" away from your DZ, so the enemy needs to start WAY back.

But I do like your theory, I think you get the concept. Try out a few lists and let us know how it goes!
