Decided to go with a lore based list.

Lilleth is the champion of the arena and leader of the wych cults. She hires ork captain badruuck to collect slaves for the up coming gladiator games in exchange for some shiney bits and a front row seat for him and his boyz. (Most likley in the arena itself says the fine print)

My list.
Lilleth hesperax w/ 6x wyches. Raider, ff
3x. 5xkabalite warriors:venoms

(Badruuck) warboss proxie: big choppa, kombi scorcha, eavy armor. W/ 30ork boyz(slugga choppa)
3xbig gunz w/6x gretchin (1unit no extra gretchin)

Sky pad landing sheild


Idealy boyz and warboss(badruuk) sit under the platform while big gunz sit atop. Raider and venoms sit on a corner of deployment to avoid desperate allies rules. Everything gets a save if its not first turn. Big gunz support fire with 36" S8 shots boyz run up center feild to draw fire and eventualy charge somthing. Venoms pick off and weaken units for boyz while raider with wyches. And lileth look for easy clean ups.


Only side note is thinkibg of dropping a few boyz for haywires for dedicated tank hunters.

Lelith with only 6 wyches as escort?
And yeah, you've barely got anything in the way of AT in this list.
Haywires or more lance ftw.

Champion of a wych cult brining only 6 wyches in a lore based list? Huh?

That aside I can see a few problems with this list, as mentioned above, it seriously lacks AT, something which could be partially remedied by making this list more fluffy and using wyches over warriors anyway.

Secondly, and probably my main point, you seem to be presenting your opponent (assuming they run TAC) the perfect target. By which I mean, you have relatively few vehicles, a large horde and some static guns. As a result you are basically presenting them with signs that go "point all you AI at this horde, all you AT at these skimmers which are full of easy to shoot up troops which need to get close up, and if you have a linebreaker unit, just mop up these grechin". The kock-on effect also means it seems to lack a bit of senergy.

Personally I would think about making the list generally much more aggressive, whilst still maintaining the fluff perspective. Mount your orks in trukks, they need to get in the thick of it fast and as they stand are AI fodder. I might be tempted to sacrifice the grots /w guns for added mobility and to free up a few points.
Now that the orks can get into CC/short range faster you can be more aggressive with your DE contingent, haywire wyches specifically or at least some other from of AT.
With wyches after their tank-bombing function is complete, if they survive, you can use them to mop up units or just tie them down. Leith is far to killy and expensive to just be used as a cleaner, be more (but not overly, otherwise youre throwing away points) aggressive with her.

My thoughts.

Revised lore list.

Lilleth with 15wyches stock.

5xwyches: haywire; venom
5xwyches: haywire; venom

2x ravagers:ff

Warboss: big choppa, shoota
21 boyz

Deffinetly more of a charging list but still a AI based list. 2ravagers and an assortment of haywires should be effecient right? Plus if badruuck(warboss) gets close to a tank he is S8 charging. Boys T4 should eat a good volley or two

I think I would use the orks as a fire magnet and drop the warboss in favor of a big mek with a Kustom force field and make the boyz all shoota boyz. This way the orks and any near by DE will get a cover save and shoota boyz can dish out a lot of dakka making them a must kill for your opponent. Leaving your dark eldar free to deal with the rest of the army.

shootas i can go for, i was going for a more versatile orkboyz since they can glance small armors easy enough in assault, and my only objection to a big mek is i wanted to use badruuck. hes a pirate looking ork and fits the fluff better. but since hes not a actual HQ choice the closest i can get is a warboss with big choppa and slugga/shoota. since our local tournment offer a few extra points if your army is completely painted, matching, and properly equiped(what u see is what u get.)
