Archon and the court is not exceptionally great. If you want hard hitting units use 2 units of 4 grotesques one with a haemunculus HQ and one with a succub and then i raiders.
Use 5 warriors in venoms with dual splinter cannons for vennom spam. 5-6 units for redundancy.
Incubi are really not that good.
Get some ravagers with dark lances for heavy support.

Unfortunately, ras is right about the incubi. I know they look awesome and the fluff is great, but mine almost never make it into combat. If you insist on taking them, consider 3+klaivex and use them as a distraction. They will draw a lot of fire, but if you manage to get them stuck in, a small group can still do some damage to most infantry units. Keep in mind that their boat is probably (definitely) going to blow up, then whoever survives the explosion will be on foot the rest of the game.
