I think it looks like a pretty solid list here jspy.
For Heavy Destroyers, what I've found works, is you swing them around a quiet flank (turbo boost is good for this) and take pot shots at enemy armor, make sure you only have LoS and your enemy can only get LoS to/from 1 or 2 units though, minimize the potential shots coming back at you. If you keep them back they could serve well for demolishing enemy transports as well, before they get into "dump nasty things with knives on your warriors" range.
I won against Orks...W00T!!!! It worked. Front deployed Mono as distraction with warriors moving behind for cover. Turbo boosted Dlord and Wraiths with Destroyers providing cover along flank towards 2 ork trukks w/boys. The Hdestroyers hung along back board edge and hit a trukk that didn't explode. So Dlord and Wraiths wiped two boy units and kept moving along Back flank. At start of second turn My Dlord and Wraiths were right next to his Battlewagon and Looted Wagon in his deployment zone. Just continued with same tactic with Wraithwing and Destroyer Units along his flank wiping everything I came across. Wraiths kept dropping but continued to get good WBB rolls. Some people just can't ignore the Monolith. Great distraction when played as mean as possible. Best part was when my opponent said my army didn't need a codex update at all. hehe
P.S. My awesome Dlord has survived 5x games now in a row with no deaths (badass).
Hahaha, well congrats. I imagine wraiths are actually pretty awesome against ork boyz due to their huge number of attacks, and the ork lack of armorsave (which is really what stops wraiths most days).
And yeah, they can't kill a monolith out of hitting it in melee most of the time. Either way, grats on beating the greenskins!
