I am curious on how many troop choices some of you are using. Are you playing the objectives, are you playing objective denial (alot of elites, HQ's and heavies) or are you going for "wipe out"?
At 1500 I am looking at 4 troop choices - 14 kill points
At 1750 I am looking at 5 troop choices on average - 16 kill points average
At 2000, definitely looking at 5 or 6 troop choices - 18 to 19 killpoints (mechanized)
However, for "annihilation" (kill point) missions it looks as if I will have to go for "wipe out" with such a high count of kill points. I can't see any way around having a lot of kill points and I am wondering if some of you have given up on missions or the points and are sporting 2 or 3 troops with your list heavy in everything else?
"On a hunch, I melted them down and inhaled the fumes and read the dark eldar codex again, AND FOUND A BUNCH OF NEW RULES HIDDEN BEHIND THE OTHER WORDS..." [Gardeth on modelling & interpreting the DE Codex]
Myself, I am still troops heavy. At the moment its 4 in 1500 6 in anything larger (my 1750 list is basically my 1500 list + 2 sniper squads and some bells n whistles).
Kill point wise
1500 - 13 Kill points (5 raiders)
1750 - 15 Kill points (1500 +2 sniper squads)
2000 - 17 Kill points (1750 + 2 Ravagers)
I figure in annihilation I will mainly be seeking wipe outs, or at least a rapid decimation of the enemy as I think I will often be unable to win on points once I have lost ~50%.
Only 3 for me at 1500, though I take the same no. at 1000. This is due in part to my lack of actual warrior models!
However, a new raider squad in the near future should change this, though I will be getting large numbersof wyches too. Hmmm... maybe a wych cult could be in order at some point too. It would make sense to use the warriors as elite portal carriers (chortle, elite warriors) and use wyches as tarpits on objectives. Hopefully in cover :s

I have yet to make a ew list properly, but it will prob be 5 at 1500 as it is now
Artificial raises a good point which i have been wondering about.
WWP Wych cult.
You can start the game with WWP's on the board on your warrior squads (elites) and bring in a whole heap of scoring units in the form of wyche late in the game that the enemy may not be able to stop.
Dear Game Developer,Caps-Lock, its like cruise-control for AWESOMENESS!
Rock is cheese, Paper is just fine
WWP and other Dark Eldar how to
As I will likely end up playing a Wych Cult, I'm shooting for minimum of 3 Troops in 1500 points, 4-5 in anything larger, whereas in 1000 I could probably squeeze two. If I can get more, I will, but that's my minimum take. Too bad I don't have cheap 100 point filler units.
And Splata, that's roughly what I had in mind with my list, but you can achieve the same thing (objectively speaking) by using Troop Warrior squads and bringing in... more Warrior squads, hah. Wyches are killers and I plan on using them as such. It's just getting them out of combat and onto the objectives is what will worry me.
I absolutely love Raider Squads... I play 3 in 1000 pt games and often 5 in 1500. Lack of Raider models kinda dampens my day in bigger games than that.
At 1500 I run 4 troop choices.
To be specific I run-
A 16 strong warrior squad with 2 splintercannon, a single blaster and a naked sybarite with WWP.
A 10 strong raider squad with 1 splintercannon and a blaster, again with a naked sybarite with WWP. The raider only has a horrorfex extra.
Then it is 2 "sniper" squads.
This gives me plenty of bodies wit the raider and large warrior squad being more of a staging post than anything else, they will move forwards to claim objectives in the wake of my wych unit and archon with incubi while also under the covering fire my 3 ravagers provide.
So far in my 10 5th ed games they haven't let me down yet.
Right now, I'm running three in 1000 points. It will probably be four-five in 1500.
well up to a few weeks ago i just ran 2 troop choices, this obviously not being viable anymore, i switched to a WWP list with more troops. In 1500 points i run 2 sniper squads and 2 16 man warrior squads with 2 SC, 2 blasters and a sybarite with agoniser and portal. I also have 13 kill points
