Hey all!
Long time lurker and Coven lover here.

I have a small tourney I’m going to tonight and wanted to know if anyone’s got some advice & criticism of this little list I have written up. It’s a bit more of a casual atmosphere, so it’s all coven themed, but still looking for some tips! (This is pretty much my whole collection- rest is still in boxes for a move, so at the least looking for any and all advice on how to run it and/or your advice on what coven Obsessions I should use in place of Prophets of flesh?I also have all the gear available to change loadouts)

The tourney is:
750 points
Max 2 detachments
Rule of two

My list:

++ Patrol Detachment 0CP (Aeldari - Drukhari) [50 PL, 748pts, 6CP] ++

+ Configuration +

Battle Size [6CP]: 2. Incursion (51-100 Total PL / 501-1000 Points)

(Also this may be a dumb question, but do the raiders also gain the benefits of the Drukhari Obsession?)

For the most part, yes Vehicles benefit from Obsessions (unless specified otherwise). In this case the Raiders WILL get the mini-transhuman from the PoF Obsession.

I am going to make some comments here based on a Competitive setting. I see you are making more of a "fun" list, so disregard as you wish.

Personally, I really like PoF. IMHO they are currently the best Coven.
-Vex Mask relic is just amazing and fills in so many gaps that Coven have.
-The mini-transhuman makes the Wracks much more durable than their cost (messing with poison and modifiers to the Wound roll, in addition to not requiring the Haemi to stand nearby).
-Diabolical Soothsayer is just a straight up better version of the vanilla WLT

My Competitive recommendations for your army are as follows:
-Chronos isnt really a great unit outside of the Dark Technomancer build. It will be pretty durable for its cost, but I think those points would be better spent on other stuff (like more wracks).
-You have 6 man Wrack squads, they should really be either 5 man or 10 man IMHO. I dont really like Ossifactors either. Electrocorrosive Whips are an MVP of mine, keep those badboys in there!
-Master Haemonculus and Haemoxytes are some of the best things in the Coven section of the army. I cannot recommend enough combining a unit of Wracks into a 10 man unit, and upgrading to the Master Haemonculus and a unit of 10 Haemoxytes (costs you 40 extra points, but so worth it)
-I dont think you need 3 Raiders with this list, since you are not filling them all up. Those points could be spent elsewhere, like Incubi/Scourges/etc
-Lastly, I really like the Talos Ichor Injector. Those Mortal Wounds can really help crack tough nuts.

But feel free to ignore my comments, since this is a Fun list, and the most important thing is to have fun!

Ossefactor and Hexrifles are better used in Dark Creed Detachements, I think.
Its more of a constant threat to snipe wounded character units, than anything else.
