Hi everyone newbie on the forums i've been looking more and more into Dark Eldar, I used to play Warhammer 40k many years ago as a Inquisition / guard player, still have the models for that but the style of play of sit and shoot seems a bit dull to me now so i want to go for something completely different.

I've got two lists the first is a 600 pt list and then another 400 pts to tack onto it so that it becomes a 1000 pt list overall. Just looking for some general suggestions/ comments.
Thanks everyone!!

- Archon - 110 Total
  Agoniser + Shadowfield

- 10 Kabaltite warriors - 125 total
  Dark lance
  Sybarite

- Raider 80 total
  Flickerfield
  Splinter racks  

- 9 wyches - 118 total
  Haywire grenades
  Hekatrix

-  Raider - 70 total
  Flickerfield

- Reavers - 96 total
 Arena Champion -10
 Cluster Caltrops -20

599 points total - means i can buy the Battleforce, with an additional Archon and Raider

To make it up to 1000pts i would then add

4 incubi - 88 total

1 venom - 75 total (for Archon + incubi)
splinter cannon
flickerfield

3 beastmasters - 126 (Means i can use the awesome hellion models)
6 Razorwing swarms (Will probably use the Forgeworld ripper swarms here)

Ravager - 115
Flickerfield

Cheers for any comments, been reading on the forums a bit and I am wondering if people think this is a good starting point. I've seen that they might be getting a refit in autumn so should i hold fire??
Thanks Everyone!!

:Edit im not looking for competitive play, but a good alround force would be nice!

Well firstly you should drop the DL on the warriors, since it will be snapshotting each turn you move with it, replace it with either a blaster or splinter cannon. Personally I would drop the squad leaders too, I've never found the extra leadership to be much use, unless you are giving them extra weapons to aid the squad, ie agoniser on the hekatrix.

Possibly get a flyer too...they are reasonably versatile and give a better option to deal with enemy flyers than firing wildly into the sky for several turns. For the beastmasters I've seen many people using vampire count hounds if you're looking for something cheap.

Stick a couple trophies on some main vehicles for the leadership reroll. 5 pt. 12" LD reroll bubble > one LD higher squad leader. Two trophies should cover most of your army and help with checks for damage, running, etc.

I strongly recommend purchasing two battleforces, especially since you're already planning to buy another Raider. Looking back at my (fairly recent) start into DE, that has far and away been the best decision in my purchase plan. If I could do it all over again, I would stick with the two battleforces, and add two venoms.

There is an incredible amount of versatility in that setup. If cost is a factor at all, building your own Archon from spare parts as a stopgap is a real possibility between the extra warriors from the Raider sprue and some of the spare parts. I made a counts-as Sliscus from a warrior that I'm quite pleased with.

You plan to run your archon with the 4 incubi? Then you need a phantasm grenade launcher.
