Welcome to Librarium Online!
I have found this guy with loads of Dark Eldar models lying around. I've put together a list of stuff I'd like to buy and would like some advice. I haven't played anything with my DE yet so I really don't know what is good and what isn't.
40 Warriors med 8 Splinter Cannons. Have 20 now.
4 Wyches inkl Succubi och 2 Blasters. Have 6 now.
1 Raider. Have 2.
10 Scourges. Have 6.
6 Incubi. Have 6.
What I mainly is unsure about are the 10 Scourges and the 6 Incubi. I had some plans of making a 9 strong Incubi Retinue for my Archon, for large battles, but I don't really know if they are worth the points. The second thing is the Scourges. Are they any good when mostly playing against Marines? Sure, they can spit out LOADS of firepower armed with SC but still is pretty expencive. Do I really need TWO squads or shall I just stick with the 6 I have now?
Should I get 5 Reavers (Have 6 now) instead of the 10 Scourges and drop the Incubi from the shopping list?

I like to be able to field at least one full squad of every unit with all the different weapons load outs (since we don't have too many) and so I own 14 Scourges. But so far I've only ever play against Ultramarines so I haven't actually take them that often. But for you I'd say nix the additional Scourges and get the Reavers instead.
If you get the additional Incubi you could then field two HQ's with Retinue.
After test playing a full 9 incubi retinue against UltraMarines I found it would obliterate any opposition and get fired at on my opponents turn. Having only 4-6 seems to ensure I whittle down his 10 man squad down to to 2 or 3 guys, who then die in his assault phase. Then it's my turn again to charge the next unit.

I wouldnt reccomend all those incubi in one squad, either split them with an archon or drachon, but not in the same unit, if their raider falls, they will be shot to pieces, and for 25 points each? no thanks

imo, you'd probably only need 10 scourges, if any.. and you probably only want X amount of incubi + drazhar, and one lord, cuz the only thing that makes lord best is the shadowfield.
