    I've played against this list several times, with different types of armies. It's quite possibly the toughest list I've went against, except maybe tyranid.

    HQ

    Archon - plasma grenades, combat drugs, shadow field
    (2) warrior retinue - 1 Dark lance, plasma grenades
    (7) incubi retinue, plasma grenades
    Raider - Disintegrator

    (9) wyches - plasma grenades
    (1) Succubus, plasma grenades
    Raider - disintegrator

    (9) wyches - plasma grenades
    (1) Succubus, plasma grenades
    Raider - disintegrator

    (10) warriors - 2 dark lances
    (10) warriors - 2 dark lances
    (10) warriors - 2 dark lances
    (10) warriors - 2 dark lances
    (10) warriors - 2 dark lances
    (10) warriors - 2 dark lances

    (7) Hellions

    Ravager - 3 disintegrators, nightshields
    Ravager - 3 disintegrators, nightshields
    Ravager - 3 disintegrators, nightshields

    Total: 1999 pts.

    Now, I would never field an army like this and don't encourage anyone else to. But, beware they are out there. That's 13 dark lances and 12 disintegrators plus a lot of close combat.

    Jack of all trades, master of none.

    I don't know what you play, but that retinue is weakened horribly by staying still to fire a lance.

    If you have any good hth squads, send them in, straight through his warriors a SM Assault squad or some Tyranid Warriors are good for this.

    For his retinue, any mass squad just to tie it down/***** it off. Ork Boyz, anything with 20 guys, ESP. Chaos Marines!!

    Fire anything w/ a str 6+ at the ravagers. Remember a lascannon glances a ravager on like a 2.
    That's tough... but that's exactly why I invented the USSR!

    Currently playing:

    World Eaters - 2000pts
    Dark Eldar - 2000pts
    Imp. Guard - 2000pts, 270 men

    The Warriors would be more effective with Blasters. And besides, it's not in the Dark Eldar's nature to stand still and shoot at a distance.

    This army has no character. Min-Maxing sucks.

    Yeah, this is a horrible DE list. That player should be ashamed of himself.

    Why in the nine hells would Dark Eldar have snipers when the use lightning-fast raids?!?!?

    IT'S AN OUTRAGE!!!!!!

    Stupid min-maxers!!!!

    These people don't deserve to play Dark Eldar!!!!!

    There is no strategy/tactic in an army like this!!!!

    Dark Eldar are not freaking Iron Warriors!!!!!

    This guy needs to be given to my Haemonculi. . . . now.

    Well, first off, this isnt really a min/maxed list. Its not bad, but has some big holes in it.

    1) The dark lance squads are good, I use three of them in 1500 myself, but that doesnt mean they are that survivable. Against another shooty opponent, they just dont last long. Remember, they are still only as tough as guardsmen.

    2)The retinue is crap. Also, I'm assuming his archon has a agonizer/splinter pistol. He would be much better off dropping those warriors entirely.

    3)Hellions? These are not in a min/maxed list period. He would be better off some reaver jetbikes probably.

    Its a list that i can see doing really well, but it can be beaten. Indirect ordinance is your friend (if you have any). Also, things like gaunts are good. Don't play an armored company or deathwing or even SM for that matter. His guns are best at High T low Save, so use Low T High Save guys .
