Default {Eldritch Raiders} Army List-750

I just (quite literally) finished up a 750 point game against my friends nids. I played as Raiders (obviously)
My wraithlord killed 1 genestealer squad and the broodlord and was in turn rended to death by the tyrant guard. Cobras killed most of 1 nid squad and the genestealers then killed all the cobras and killed one serpent squad. My leader got a bunch of rending attacks and that is what killed his very tough and annoying HQ. All in all a good and exciting game.
Now how should I change/expand this list for 1000+ points? I'm figuring rangers, more cobras and maybe a fire support squad...ideas?
The LISTS!
Eldritch Raiders
HQ
Pirate Leader-Riveblades, Conversion Field
Retinue-x7 Probati -Power weapons
Elites
Cobra Squad-10 men
x10
Troops
Serpent Squad 1-10 men
x2 Fusion Guns
Serpent Squad 1-10 men
x2 Fusion Guns
Heavy Support
Wraithlord-Starcannon

Tyranids....
Hive Tyrant and 3 guards, 2 squads of genestealers and one broodlord.

Personally, I'd put together a Bright Lance squad.

5 Dragons with Brightlance.
Malefactor with Foresight and Brightlance.
Venom.

Fast-moving, and gets three anti-tank shots a turn!

I was considering taking Fast Shot...double my lance power and they can move fast

It's a good clear-cut list - my only suggestion is to give the Probati Shuriken Pistols or Catapults for the sake of an extra attack, an extra 7 powerweapon hits is nothing to scoff at! And also, what about a Witchblade for one of the members... as it stands, a Dreadnaught will realy ruin your day.

It was a great match indeed. Was very close but a good match. I might start looking into eldrich raiders someday...

does anyone have any pics of Eldritch Raiders...I'm basing my force off the Eldar kill-team in the 40k Big Rulebook....or does anyone know where I can find pictures of them?

I'd personally base them of standard Craftworld models, but more flamboyance. Pirate crews tend to start if I recall correctly as young Eldar who chafe under the strict governing of the Path. My Serpents are based on Guardians, but clearly more concerned about their flashy looks - with golden Shuriken Catapults and flowing emerald cloaks, they clearly want to shred Mon'Keigh with style.

I'll have to post a picture of my Avenger-based Dragon model leaping into the air with a Shuriken Pistol in one hand, Catapult in the other, firing as he goes.
