-Having both this guy and the Princess is a little over the top for 1000p, I'd reccomend dropping one or the other. Fluffwise I'd drop the Princess and have her appear in larger points games, but thats just me. (Her point value would buy you 2 Squads of Daemonettes!)

-A buried Blast Master would add oomph to these squads, and I fiond the use of Bolter-meat-shieds to almost counterproductive.

-Sadly, we cannot take allies from LatD into our Chaos Space Marine Lists... This may change with the new 'Dex however, as rumors abound that everyone may be getting cultists! (Woot!) Consider converting this into another Squad of Daemonettes, and using the extra points to equip your Noise Marine Squads with Blastmasters and some added Sonic Blasters.

-Consider toneing down the HQs at this point level, the 1000p level is where you want to establish your "core", and add the fun stuff as you approach 1500. Also consider whether you are playing a CSM army, or an LatD army. The LatD limit your access to noise marines, give you access to guardsmen, mutants, and IG Tanks. The Slanneshi CSM list gives you access to a gazillion Noise Marines to include their Havocs. Not to toot my own horn, but if you sift through the Slanneshi Cult thread, you will find the rough draft of my "Tactica Noise Marine" which you may also find helpful.

TTFN,
Ged

thanks for the pointers. I read the whole slaaneshi thread before posting, so it looks like time to go back and look again.

Originally this list was supposed to be 1500, but I stopped part way through when I realized it formed a natural 1000pt "block".

Time to revise...

I'd say just drop either one of the HQ's and get more squad(s)

Whoa... You've only got 18 Marines in your army? A little thin on the meat aren't we?

I think what Ged/Sian said is very useful, I know that having a powerful Lord is quite important, but 2 powerhouse Characters!? You need more Marines in your army, you wouldn't last 2-3 turns of shooting. I think the best thing you could do is drop the Daemon Prince as he is a bit O.T.T. at the mo' and should be left for bigger points games.

As for Anti-Tank, the Infiltration skill is your best friend. Havocs with Meltaguns, or Blast masters should work fine.

Alrighty.

I've revised the list, still small but all models have the mark of Slaanesh! As with the last list this army is designed to shoot the dickens out of whatever it faces, while still retaining hardcore close combat efficiency with the Chosen "raptor" squad/Lieutenant combo. Its a pretty expensive squad, and I may need to consider noise marine bikes instead, though they sacrifice cavalry move, or perhaps mount them on steeds.
