Laser wake field acceleration (LWFA) mechanism allow to produce extremely short electron bunches of a few fs length with the energy up to a few GeV providing peak current of many kA in extremely compact geometries. This novel acceleration method therefore opens a new way to develop compact "laser-based" FELs. ELI beamlines is an international user facility for fundamental and applied research using ultra-intense lasers and ultra-short high-energy electron beams. In frame of this report we present conceptual solutions for an compact "LFWA" based soft X-ray FEL, which can deliver a photon peak brightness of 10³¹ ph/sec/mm²/mrad²/0.1%bw. A combination of this achievement with novel laser technologies will open a new perspective for the development of extremely compact FELs with few or even sub-femtosecond photon bunches for a very wide user community.
