But I was checking out the Archon challenge thread and I noticed that some people had kabal leaders and others had corsairs. Is there a difference other than the name and fluff? Just curious, I have the codex and I am reading through it but I haven't noticed anything.

Good question. As far as DE go, it's just a name. There is an actual Eldar Corsairs army list in the new Forge World book made up of Eldar that grew bored with life on the old Craftworld. These are more inline with what Eldar were like in the original Rogue Trade book 25 years ago. Corsairs can take one unit of Kabalites as an Elites choice, but have more in common with Eldar armies in gaming terms. (No pain tokens, poison weapons, though their troops can take Venoms or Falcons as dedicated transports.) Hope this answers your question!

Yup ESE has pretty much hit the nail on the head. What you're probably seeing in the Archon's challenge are leaders of those Kabal/corsair fleets who ply the void for much of their time have than remaining in the dark city. the prime example is the Duke.
