    From the looks of thing your list lacks the ability to deal with a number of different armies/units. You are very light on ranged anti-tank, cannot deal with high T units, cannot deal with hordes, and have no units that can effectively hold home objectives.

    Shardnets are good against certain units but having 2 or more in each squad is wasted points since the normal squad you'll be fighting will generally have only one model (the squad leader) with more than 1 attack. You'd be better off with either of the other two choices, maybe keep one squad with them for HQ hunting. Likewise haywires can be useful on a squad or two but putting them on the whole army is going to mean lots of wasted points, and wyches are not the best choice for tank hunting since this leaves them open to be shot at next turn.

    If you're going to take the cronos it needs the Vortex. Otherwise it's so slow that by the time it's in flamer range your wyches should be in CC with most of their army already, and it really is not that good in CC. I'd recommend dropping them though, they're nice on paper but have been pretty disappointing for me in general.

    If I may suggest a list with some alternative choices:

    Lelith Hesperax - 175 (With Wyches)

    Hekatrix Bloodbrides (10) - 250
    - Razorflails x3
    - Syren
    - - Agonizer
    - Raider

    Wyches 1 (9) - 190
    - Shardnet & Impaler (remember that Lelith comes with one too)
    - Hekatrix
    - - Agonizer
    - Raider

    Wyches 2 (10) - 230
    - Hydra Gauntlets x2
    - Haywire Grenades
    - Hekatrix
    - - Agonizer
    - Raider

    Wyches 3 (10) - 215
    - Hydra Gauntlets x2
    - Hekatrix
    - - Agonizer
    - Raider
    -- Grisly Trophies

    Wyches 4 (10) - 210
    - Hydra Gauntlets x2
    - Hekatrix
    - - Agonizer
    - Raider

    Ravager w/3 Dark Lances - 115
    - Flickerfield

    Ravager w/3 Dark Lances - 115
    - Flickerfield


    You've more than doubled your lance firepower, have agonizers to deal with high T units, the gauntlets and razor flails will let you take on hordes more effectively, and by putting Lelith with a normal wyche squad you don't give you opponent as much of an obvious target (having her with the blood brides does two bad things, it make the unit serious overkill for almost any normalish squad you'll see, and it gives your opponent an obvious priority target so if they take out that raider they put both your bloodbrides and Lelith out of commission for a bit). The Grisly Trophies are there because you had 5 points left over and so that if your raiders start to get shot down their occupants won't have to worry about pinning as long as you keep them close together.
    The meat things seek to destroy ourselves. They hunt us as we hunt them but they are weak and uncertain. Bring them understanding of the power of ourselves through our strength and their fear. The inferior flesh will be entirely destroyed, all fragments will be smashed. Ourselves will fight to the last, all weak flesh must be consumed
