I see your going with a reaver theme here, if thats the case your going to want to put a succubus with and agoniser in at least some of the squads. Your wyches are going to be targeted first so be carefull with them. And you really only need 8 in each squad, that will give you enough points to give them all plasma grenades.You are running way too much anti tank, those ravagers need dissies and loose the screaming jets. Personally I would drop the blasters in your warrior squads as nobody should get close enough to be in range. Those guys are all the anti tank you really need. And give your archon and agoniser with combat drugs. the way he is now he will die fast with only a +5 save. and the bike wont protect him that much. Poison blades seem cool untill you realize that everybody gets to make there armour save. pretty good try at a first list. Most new DE players are all over the place, even if they know how to play already. I dont know where you would get the points to add a succubus to your reavers, maybe you can consider dropping a squad of them and making your archon two dracons. just a thought.

Default Re: 1500 point list

Some stuff to think about....

Ill lose the screaming jets. With the points left over, I can give the Archon an Agonizer and give the Ravagers some Dissies. Ill lose the Blasters on the warriors and (I dont have my codex on me) I think I might have enough to give some of the bike squads a succubus. If thats not enough, I can bump the wyches down to squads of 8.

Heavys

=120pts

1 Ravager w/ 3 Dissies
=120pts

total= 1516

Its a lil over but the list is for friendly games and they won't care

I also made a 500pt upgrade block based around the Haemeculus because I love the fluff and conversion opporuntity. Basically this gets added to the current list if/when needed. But it isn't my main list so I wanted it to be seperate NTM it makes it easier in case I need to play a 2000 pointer on the fly or somthing. So here it goes....

HQs:

Dracon gets bumped to Archon and gets combat drugs (+ 50pts)

Haemeculus w/ Stinger and Scissorhands
Retinue of 9 grotesques (Counted as Elites)
All mounted in a Raider
=225pts

Troops

8 Warriors w/ splinter Rifles
2 Warriors w/ Darklances
=100pts

Heavys

1 Ravager w/ 3 Dissies
=120pts

Total= 495

the whole total comes to 2011

you have plenty of anti tank with only two sniper squads and your three reaver squads. so i suggest you drop one sniper squad to upgrade a wych to a succubus with agoniser and plasma grenades in your wych squads. i dont have my codex handy but that should be close to the right amount of pts. your second block looks pretty cool. but you may want to change that stinger to a destructor. it is a way better weapon. and dont expect too much out of the heamy, he dies pretty easily in cc. one trick you might want to try is putting your archon with those grots and see the damage that will do. but try your list as is with my suggestions and see what you like.
