    How Many Raiders In Your 1500-2000 pt Army?

    I'm pretty curious how many raiders you guys field. Please vote and make a mention of what squads get the Raiders

    For me, I generally use about 3; two for my Wyches and one for my Warriors. My Archon is usually on a Jetbike. This does deny me of Incubi, but I really dislike having my IC shot out from his Raider

    Thanks for your time and cooperation!

    At this point in time, eight. Five to warriors, one to HQ, two to wytches.
    And a pair of raiders on steriods (ravagers).
    EDIT: That's in my 2000 points list. Trust me, that is not what I own (don't ahve that many yet), but my current raider rush plan.

    I'd have trouble believing anyone uses 8++ raiders in a 1500ish point army, or even 2000, let alone the majority of people. Perhaps it's how many they own?

    In 2000 I pretty typically used 5 raiders and 2 ravagers but it depends. I've gone as low as 3 raiders, or even done footslogging armies before.

    5 raiders would be one for a retinue, two for wych squads and maybe 2 for raider squads.

    Hi,
    I would reliably use 4 raiders at this level, 1 for the HQ and possibly 3 for the Wyches. Anything with assaulting goodness I like to place in transport and leave the footsloggong to the more shooty troops.
    Cheers.

    keep in mind this is a webway portal army

    at the moment i use 3
    incubi
    wyches
    warriors

    and then 1 ravager

    if i was doing a raider rush (a group of crows is a murder and group of cows is a herd and group of dark eldar is a car park) i would use 5 minimum or none, this is so that you overwhelm the enemy with targets, and if you can do this, then you will at least get some of your army to the enemy.

    I only use two. Keep in mind I almost always run a wwp list with a squad of kroot hounds so I really don't need more.

    My dracon with incubi rides in one while my wyches ride in the other. If I ever use another squad of wyches I would put them in a raider as well. My warrior squads either are carrying the portal or are sniper squads so I never have them in a raider. The kroot give me a lot of early punch so that I have time for the wwp to be placed. I use raiders only as a way to make sure my best close combat units get into combat their first turn on the board.

    Also I'm still slowly building my army and with lack of funds it is hard and I don't have a real raider model yet.

    1500 = 3 raiders and 3 ravagers (wych cult)
    2000 = 5 raiders and 2 or 3 ravagers (sometimes take a talos)

    So 8 skimmers total and probably try more if I had them.

    Totaly agree on this one. And besides, the raider number always varies depending on the army list you are playing, so you can use anywhere from 0-wutever. I currently have about 20 different army lists for 1.5k games and they range anywhere from 2-6 raiders depending on the strategy.
