Default Quick 700 pointer!

I am playing a game with my friend who is very new, and I want him to win. I don't want to make it seem like it, though...

He plays an about 700 point Ork army with Warboss [duh], Shoota Boys, Stikkbommas, Burna Boys, a Lobba, some grotz, and a looted hellhound.

I decided to play with my BT force.

Commander: I have 2 commanders for my army. One is the Marshall dude who's statline is quite good. He has the usaul power-gamer kind of equipment .
Using extra bitz, I made another Commander, who is the lesser of two. He is armed simply, with no Command Squad.
Commander
Bolt Pistol
Purity Seals
Power Sword
Bionics [eye]

Veterans: A very basic kit, designed to support my commander with low fall-back risk. I minimized the squad, but kept them even, so 6 models is the final count. I threw in a Melta and some various special weapons allowed for BTs in Armageddon
All in all, they should do some damage, and look fearsome, but probably get toasted by either a Warboss or the Hellhound Veterans
Vet Sarge
Storm Bolter
Power Fist
Purity seals
5 Veterans
1 melta gun
2 bolters
1 power fist
1 Bolt pistol and CC

Tactical Squad 1: With this squad, support was the word on mind. I wanted bolters and plasma, and teh ability to whittle down the Orks assaulting me to the point where it looks like I'll have a chance,
Tactical Squad
7 Space Marines
1 Sergeant
6 bolters
1 Heavy Bolter
1 Plasma gun

Tactical Squad 2: Las-Plas. Simpel Enough
Tactical Squad
1 Sergeant
4 Marines
3 bolters
1 Plasma gun
1 Lascannon

Devastators: This was the most powerful unit in my selection, and it should work well enough with the orks.
1 Sergeant
5 Marines
2 bolters
3 Missile Launchers
1 Plasma Cannon

So... what do you guys think or suggest?

Remember, I'm trying to subtly lose...

Why not try giving him tips and help him improve his army insetad of losing for him? I don't think the tournament players are going to lose cuase he's new.

Try helping him instead of playing bad...

But if playing bad is what you want, here...
The 2nd commander seems pointless and to purposely waste points. Instead, turn Squad 2 into an objective capturer. So it looks like your about to capture that objective, when you foolishly decide to pull them out to reinforce your army.

No no no... My complete 1500 point army has two commanders. I am usinng the lesser in this battle.

For teh past hlaf year, I have been helping him on tactics and army-building. I don't play often, so this is a test on how well he's picked up the tips.

Thanks!
Stankov
