So I had a few games with mates on a 4x4' table today and won both of my games using this list (a rarity for me so far with my DE). My opponents fielded foot heavy Chaos Space Marines (Noise Marines, Cultists, Obliterators and a Flying Daemon Prince) and Vanilla Space Marines (Tactical squads, Devastatord, Termies and a Dreadnaught) for me to handle.

So here is the list:

HQ:
Duke Sliscus
Haemonculus - Liquifier gun
Haemonculus - Liquifier gun

Troops:
4 x Wracks (fly with the Duke)
Venom - Nightsheilds and TL Splinter cannon

9 x Wyches - 1 x Hydra gauntlets and Haywire Grenades (fly with the Haemy)
Hekatrix with Venom Blade
Raider - Nightsheilds and Dark Lance

9 x Wyches - 1 x Hydra gauntlets and Haywire Grenades (fly with the Haemy)
Hekatrix with Venom Blade
Raider - Nightsheilds and Dark Lance

Heavy Support:
Talos Pain Engine - TL Liquifier Guns
Talos Pain Engine - TL Liquifier Guns

I am not going to say my opponents are great players, but they are certainly not novices so thought I would post here to hear your thoughts on this list as I was pleasantly surprised by it's durability on the table in a face of outnumbering space marine armies.

I really need to scale with up to 1250, 1500 and 2000pts for future games, but I really like the Dukes ability to control the drug rolls so I think the more Wyches and 9 Reavers could be where I will go.

Cheers guys,

I will say that 4x4 table really helped this list. When you get to 6x4s, you will notice a huge drop of effectiveness with this list. So be careful as you scale up.

Thanks for your comment! Yeah I know the table had alot of influence on how this went, they stood little chance really Twisted Evil . Though ithe small table really helped my opponents pop transports turn one too, I had to use some nifty transport taxi-ing to get both squads of wyches to the front lines. I had been having such bad luck with my lists where I had a Ravager and Reavers and the area denial effect of two Pain Engines really helped me to win these.

We are likely to be playing on 4x4 tables for a long while yet though we are building up to a 3vs3 6k each side battle on one of the huge Forgeworld tables at Warhammer World in August, so I need to expand this up to 2k by then really (I have the models, just need to work out a list). I really like the Talos though so would hate to have to drop them for Ravagers, though I can see how I might struggle.

For the 2k I was thinking of adding another Wyche-Haemy Raider, a Wyche Venom, 9 Reavers (with caltrops), an Incubi Venom, and a Razorwing Jetfighter to bring it up to 2k.

Anyone got any suggestions? I would like to keep the list combat drug heavy and not include nay warriors if possible.
