    What you've done here is listed the typical loadout for an Archon and 2 Raider Squads. It is kind of hard to comment on what you need to do without a points limit you want to stay under. When going for a drive by shooting squad throw a Blaster on one of the warriors as well. Same range as a SR when the Raider moves and a way better chance of killing something.

    Just curious what your plans for that Archon are. at 10 strong, there isn't any room on the Raider for him and he'll never make it into combat on foot. To tell you the truth when below 1K go with a Dracon or even a Haemi to save points. You won't be seeing too many things on the board at those points that he can't kill.

    BTW, the "force field thing" is called a Shadowfield.
    Looking for a compliment here is like looking for a girlfriend in a cemetary. You know you probably won't like what you dig up, but you'll take it anyway.

    Thanks I know its vague and sorry the raider squad is at 9 to accomidate the archon what I was asking for is im building up to 550pts for a series of games with a friend and was wondering what people thought I should add to get there, I will be adding a raider with a disintigrator for the other squad so what else do people think I should add?

    i personally like taking a wyche dracite instead of an archon or a dracon. having a 4+ inv is a must if you want him living. in other words, you cant count on the shadowfield. cause once it fails, your archon/dracon is practically dead.

    i agree with whats already been posted. add a blaster to your raiders and make sure you have a total of 9 warriors in them so you can add your lord to one when the game starts.

    i would also get rid of hell mask and trophy rack. you can still have the conversion on the model for looks but these upgrades arent really necessary, especially on a 550pt game.

    lastly just add another raider squad in there if you can. stay away from ellites and heavy support for now. those things come in handy for 750pt games and up.

    ex army list:

    1 dracite with agoniser, combat drugs, pistol, shadowfield, and plasm nades - 118pts

    3 raider squads with the following: 5 warriors. 1 w/ cannon, 1 w/ blaster. 1 sybrite with agonizer. (total of 6 guys on raider)
    raider with DL. these squads are 144pts each

    so if you do the math, 3 raider squads and 1 dracite = 550pts

    good luck!
