Are these armies too strong for Gencon (410, 16 fig max)?

VIPERS - 17 figures (sit 1)
Armoc Vipers/Aubrien Archers x 1
Venoc Vipers x 4
Venoc Warlord x 1
Zetacron (Can bring Deadeye if Zetacron with +2 move is too strong)

MARRO PLAQUE
Su-Bak-Na
Marrden Nagrubs x 1
Marro Drones x 3
4th squad of drones + Marcu / Me-Burk-Sa + Marcu / Stingers x 1

UNDEAD + RANGE
Zombies x 4
Johnny “Shotgun” Sullivan
Syvarris/Agent Carr/Gurei-Oni/Atlaga/Heirloom/KMA (adjust strength to suit meta)
I like the Viper one a lot, especially with x1 Aubriens. That used to be my favorite type of build way back in the day.

I'd swap the drones out for dividers for the second one.... x3 Drones is pretty tricky to play if you only have Su-Bak-Na backing it. Or maybe run a squad of PK's for your last 70 and play the Drones with Su-Bak-Na/Grubs as a slow second wave? I'd probably go with that if you're set on Drones x3. You could always play Drones x5 and Su-Bak-Na without grubs, if you're willing to face that in the off rounds.

The last one is interesting. The Zombies could be brutal for armies that play lighter or include x1 commons (which I think we'll see a lot of). I like Atlaga with that build.
