Here is my Game 1 List:
Archon (Shadowfield, WWP, Power Sword, Haywire Grenades) - 155
Court of the Archon (3 Sslyth, 2 Medusae) in Raider (Night Shields) - 195
3 Incubi in Venom - 125
Ravager - 105
6x5 Kabalite Trueborn (4 Blasters) in Venoms - 1,080
5 Scourges with Haywire - 120
5 Hellions - 65
Kabalite Raiding Party - Having 24 blasters supported by 7 Venoms was pretty nifty. I was pretty conservative with my Trueborn because I didn't want them to get assaulted and thus kept them 24" away from his super unit.
Ravager with Disintegrators - I actually really liked this option. I think we have so much AP2 and anti-infantry, that this might not get too much play, but against an infantry heavy army it was perfect. I would have done quite a bit of damage if I ran 3 of these.
Incubi - Two Incubi successfully finished off a squad of 3 Marines with FNP in 2 combat phases (not surprising I suppose). I don't think these will have a place in my competitive lists (they need invulnerables against tough units and/or grenades), but they filled a role nicely.
Hellions - These guys didn't do much, but were successfully able to take themselves out of the fight and not get killed with their 12" move. That has to count for something, right?
Court of the Archon - I got my first taste of how awesome the WWP can be when you drop down a shooty unit. Even just having 2 Medusae, I was successfully able to kill 2 of the wolf bodyguard for an Iron Wolf camping on an objective (he failed a morale test and ran off the board). The thought of deepstriking with a unit of D-Scythe Wraithguard is pretty appealing.
