Alright, don't give Raveners guns because there going to be fleeting to get to combat.
Additionally, to make this clearer I woud get rid of the idea of using the type A, etc thing cause that just makes it more confusing. Just type the list of biomorphs after the number of warriors, and define between whos got what for weapons.(look at some other lists to get a better idea)
I would also drop the points for each warrior off, thats something that can slide. But we don't need to know what each warrior costs.
Legion Of Everblight: Abyslonia
Protectorate of Menoth: Grand Exemplar Kreoss
Those "Heavies" are godawfully expensive. Really think you'll need the firepower in 400pts? There won't be that many vehicles to worry about, and MEQ's laught at Venom Cannons. GEQ's fear them, but you could honestly blast a GEQ with something else with the same effectiveness.
I'd go with Stranglers. Why? Because you need MEQ's to make as many saves as possible (Better chance to wound!), and they're going to get those saves regardless of weither you use a BS or VC. At least the BS has a pie. As far as GEQ's... You're going to kill a lot more with one pie plate than two shots. And a final plus for the BS: It doesn't cost as much (Dunno what you'd use the extra points for... Ripper bases?).
As for the rest... It'd take the Devourer off the Ravener. Sure, the insane number of shots is really, really nice but they're CC units. Shooting slows them down and keeps them from what they're really ment to do: Assualt.
Well I wouldn't put off devours on ravs as they can still do quite a bit of damage. If you have the points left over and don't need em anywhere else why not. Plus there is the occasion where you don't need to fleet and the massed fire from a rav with a devour is nothing to laugh at.
Is it me or does any other necron player get annoyed when they see people saying "Necrons eat souls". How is that even possible as souls are part of the warp and necrons want nothing to do with it? Eh probaly me just me being picky.
