Well, this is another topic where it's all based on personal preference. I have a bunch of bikes, but don't tend to use them because of their point cost.
As far as mounting everything in Raiders, I do it. It's extremely effective, esspecially if you play with escalation rules. With the 4th Ed rules, there are some really nasty disadvantages to our vehicles, like not blocking LOS, or the fast crash, but I think it fits the nature of the Dark Eldar and it's pretty easy to hide the small Raiders.
Plus, I still love seeing the look on my enemies face when I show up to fight and everything is on a flying base.
reavers and wyches are actually un neccessary in some games. They are both pretty expensive units. THey are good and I take them, but they arent a must. Depending on your strategy in can change. Mandrakes and beast packs just arent effective, so I agree with you on that.
"There is no middle ground. Strike Hard, strike fast and strike first."
Mandrakes are rather underpowered, but they definately have their uses. As a distraction unit they are useful, you can use them to confuse your opponent and compel him to react to a situation that never develops which misdirects some of his forces for a short time. Or, if the enemy ignores them (many players undervalue Mandrakes) then you can use them in their other role - close support right where it's needed. This, I have found, is especially useful in the new breed of WWP armies where the portal is carried by foot units (squads in Raiders are just too vulnerable for this under 4th ed rules) and you find that you need to ward off/tie up enemy assaulters for a turn to get the portal open. Mandrakes are also good in Escalation missions because they always start on the table so you can get an early advantage in numbers and capture more objectives (+2 to all cover saves is handy here as well to hold them).
Warp Beasts are OK if you use a WWP to get them onto the battlefield, and they are cheap for a unit that can do some nasty damage. However they are easy to kill and need support, for a few points more the Talos is probably more versatile and independant, though it is also unfortunately considerably slower.

mount everything on a raider it would work best. and go with archon for battles that are quite a few points and a dracon for battles that are like 500 points or less.Originally posted by The Exploited@Oct 25 2004, 10:12
