So feed back for the following list. It's 1847, and works as msu, probably not in its finest but we'll see. There's a mix of DE, covens and harlies.

RSR:
Succubus- armour of misery, Glaive, HWG

Warriors- venom, Dc, blaster, syrabite with HWG
Warriors as above.

3x reavers, blaster, claptrops
Reavers as above
Reavers as above
Reavers as above

Reavers as above

Covens:
Gritquesuire:

Heami, sump.
3 grots, raider
3 grots, raider

Covens:
Dark artisan:

Heami, wwp
Talos, heat lance.
Chronos. Need to find points for spirt probe perhaps?

Harlequins:

Heroes path:
Death jester, HWG
Shadowseer, mask of secrets, HWG. Need to find points for lvl2
Solitaire, HWG

Heroes path, infiltrate onto the board out of line of sight, solitaire on a stronger flank, DJ somewhere to snipe, shadowseer somewhere safe on opposite flank from solitaire. Succubus goes with grot squad and heami and turbo boosts with second squad to shadowseer. DA deep strikes hopefully turn two. Reavers do what reavers do best and be annoying. Shadowseer rolls on telepathy for shriek, will probably never get it off.

Venoms warriors, I've never played syrabites with HWG so they are more of an experiment for myself, if they shave hull points they shave hull points, venoms will most likely turbo boost to keep up with the raider squads.

Pros-

Msu
Hardish hitting units
Spam
-7ld if played right

Cons-
Lack of anti tank
Dark eldar
My dice rolling

Feed back, criticism, ripping are all welcome.

Here is my opinion:

Spirit probe is a must on Dark Artisan, I also think the vexorator mask is really good in that formation (Keeps those wolf lord types from charging in and killing your pain engines before they can strike).

I would swap the hero's path out for a cast of players, make the death jester the Ibram's specter and give your Haemi from the grots a WWP to ride with them (Shriek bomb at -3 LD) and drop the Succubus for a court (maybe single medusae or lammy in a venom?), hopefully saving enough points in the process to get another warrior squad or your favorite AT unit.

Biggest issue with your list is that you have invested alot of points in fragile characters, so you will likely be outnumbered and not be durable you will have to hit hard to make up for it (a true glass cannon).

The blasters don't help the reavers all that much (they are nice to have for options but with alot of your army in reserve they will be targeted right off and jinking the whole game) so if you need points I would feel free to drop them.

Played against sisters and the four assassins today and pretty much tabled the guy. Used the -5ld to remove a full retrobuter? Squad. Which took the guy by surprise. Dark artisan failed to come on turn 2 due to having a -3 to reserve rolls from one of the assassins. Solitaire didn't do much due to me forgetting you can't charge of you infiltrate, thought you could if your opponent goes first. The list actually worked pretty well together but against other armies yeh things need to get changed.

Succubus failed to kill his cannoness die to my bad dice rolling and his rerolls.

Grots rampaged their way through every squad they touched lol had a squad eventually run after the shooty sniper assassin who was starting to annoy me using a one heavy bolted sister to consolidate faster towards him.

Reavers spend the time knocking out raiders and taking the organ gun off his exorcist before the DA came in and nuked it due to no other targets

Hmm, surprised that you didnt get the spirit probe on the Chronos. That 4+ FNP (re-rolling 1's) can be a real life saver. I would recommend dropping anything possible to get it in there (its that important).

What is the "Dc" on your venoms?
