    What next?

    So i've just started collecting Dark Eldar, and my what fun they are to play. Anyway I was looking for some suggestions on what to purchase next. Right now I have:

    2 Lords
    10 wyches (2 of which are succubi)
    2 sniper squads
    2 raider squads (with sybarites)
    2 raiders for them
    1 ravager

    If I make things expensive it works out to about 1200 points.

    So my question is: What next?

    The meat things seek to destroy ourselves. They hunt us as we hunt them but they are weak and uncertain. Bring them understanding of the power of ourselves through our strength and their fear. The inferior flesh will be entirely destroyed, all fragments will be smashed. Ourselves will fight to the last, all weak flesh must be consumed

    I would say some Incubi. Opinions seem to be mixed on them, but they never steer me wrong, and my opponent always gets this look about him when they deploy next to his command squad... The downside to them is they can be somewhat of a fire magnet. Also I would flesh out your Wyches to 2 squads of 10 each on a raider, I like to give them blasters, but YMMV. They need mobility, if you try to footslog them they will get eaten alive. I might also suggest a 10 man squad of Mandrakes. A LOT of ppl think of them as weak, but i see them as 30 attacks on the charge that always reach the target full strength. On a final note, where's the Talos?

    - another Ravager
    - enough wytches to field 2 full raider squads (so 8 more)
    - 5 Reaver Jetbikes (2 with blasters)

    That will take you to 1500 points.
    Expanding to 2000+ points might look like:
    - Talos (maybe 2 if you drop a Ravager)
    - Raider with Grots and 3 Haemonculi
    - Another Reaveer Jetbike squad or two
    - enough Wytches to field 4 squads of 7 lead by a Succubus (for 8 total) (here's your wytch cult)

    more warriors.
    I'm actually not in my sixties. For some obscure reason, my age is set 50 years older than what it actually is.

    Nah, he's got enough warriors. For now at least.

    I say get another ravager, more wyches (enough to make 2 whole squads), raiders for them, definately not a talos though, its too slow. After that, either some incubi for your lord and a raider to transport them or a bike for your lord and a bunch of reaver jetbikes.

    Slow doesn't matter, it's cheap and will pay for it's self in it's ability to let your Raiders get to where you need them. What I mean by that, is most people (at least where I play, perhaps it's different where you guys are) will pour horrendous amounts of firepower into taking out a Talos. With it's high toughness, these are guns that would easily fell a raider that aren't firing at them. This is just an opinion though, based on how they play out for me.

    2 Squads of 3 bikes with 2 blasters each always, at least for me, get about twice to three times their points worth in heavy infantry and tanks. and definitly raiders for 2 squads of wyches.

    If your opponents are smart, they'll completely ignore the talos and shoot down your raiders, ravagers and other vunerable stuff. The talos really is too slow to be in a dark eldar army and I won't ever take one till it can move 12" or deepstrike or something. The talos gets the disadvatages of being a skimmer and none of the advantages. I want a 12" movement, even if that means it becomes a hell of alot more expensive.
