Hi

I just posted my former list with eldar allies, and it worked quite well, but the main reason why I write this is not because I'm not pleased with my former list, but I really wanna have a pure dark eldar list that works.
Believe me, I have tried many different confiqurations but they have always lacked something as I am tempted with some models and always try stick them to my lists, no matter what Razz
So here is the core I want to use as it has been proved to be very efficient. I just need some thought's what to get with the unused points;


3 * 10 Kabalite warriors --- Splinter cannon, blaster
Sybarite
Raider --- (Night shields optional), Dark lance

2 * 9 Reavers --- 3*heat lances
Arena champion --- Venom blade (power spear optional)

2 * Ravagers ---- (Night shields, Flickerfields optional), Dakr lances

Voidraven Bomber ---2*Void lances, void mine, (2 missiles optional)

Total 1418pts

So any suggestions

This is what I've been thinking to add :

Archon ---- blaster, shadowfield, venom blade, goes with one of the warrior squad (dropping the cannon + sybarite, adding a grisly trophies)

3 * 7 wyches --- HWG
Hekatrix ---- Venom blade
raiders

Night shields on ravagers

changing blasters on reavers
Total 2000pts

I like running wyches, but the only problem is the 6th edition... back in the 5th there was no difficulty getting those girls into a combat, but in the 6th I just struggle with them, well needs more training I quess.

would this work or do you guys / girls have better suggestions ?

wyches with HWG always seem to be a suicide attack, so I try to keep them small so that at least it's worth the points... I personally 5 with 2 5man units in venoms.

That said, more than anything I would add venoms. I know a lot of folks prefer raiders, but I like a mix. Also, whatever my opponents tend to most vocally complain about, I usually take that to be a good list, and more than anything else my opponents complain about:

5 man warrior Venoms - 17 poison shots a turn, 22 within 12" at 110pts, one of the best anti infantry
volume of fire units per point in the game.
Ravagers (which you have) - <32pts per dark lance rocks

thanks for the opinion!

I don't personally like small squads.. I have run 5 * warriors with a blaster in venoms before, and I do like the venom though, but in my experience 10 man squads are better. same goes with wyches, the hwg's are there only because I have had too much of those situations in the past, that a dreadnought is close by and I can do anything to it without my hwg's. So the role isn't purely on tank wrecking but being able to deal with those if must.

The idea why I chose wyches, is I can assault any threats nearby, they will be my spearhead and warriors will follow, or if something threats my warriors they can counter assault. only thing with them is that I prefer bigger squads of 'em and am not sure about just having 7...

Another thing I ve thought is dropping the archon and making those 9 reaver units to 6 man units with 2 * blasters. Then adding 2 * succubus with HWG + Vb, raising wyches to 9 man strong and switching one unit of wyches to hekatrix bloodbrides 8-9 + HWG + syren with Venom blade..

The archon is good with warriors and that squad can really hold end game objectives and the only reason I would swich him to 2 * succ is that the wych squads will get quite a boost and can perform well in combat.. Dunno , I think I need to test this list and if it needs more puch in the assault I'll try dual succubus..
