Default LatD Raptor Cult (bearing in mind the new codex on the verge)

I was thinking that now I have painted up a legal Chaos Force and I won't be buying much until the new codex comes out due to the massive amount of changes Ive heard about.

Now the reasons I got into 40k where Dreads (tho I hate chaos dread stats), bikes and RAPTORS!.

Now I want to break off a little from MessyArts legion to make my own sector of it. I was thinking due to being a nightlord fan a raptor cult would be great. With furies, winged muties!, raptors and a lord with D.flight. (Fluff wise) Of course Ulzar would have my tzeench Sorcerer look over the antics of this cult within his ranks. My only problem is I head raptors are having a price drop at the expense of a drop of the 'hit of run' rule. It hurts and makes it better at the same time I'm mixed about this still.

Also without the word of plastic raptors I may have to step up my conversion on plastic raptors (depending o what the new marks will do to raptors).

Well how would YOU guys represent a Raptor Cult that could hold its own in battle?
(I'm tempted to let them have a defiler due to its upcoming fleet ability and all other open h.support)

If you are thinking of having a Tzeentch sorcerer leading the army then maybe a mixture of Tzeentch and raptors, that way you could have the bulwark fire support of Tzeentch with the spead and stealth of the raptors for objectives and fast strikes. Maybe a unit or two fo raptors with a leutenant with flight to represent a cult brainwashed by Tzeentch who are being used by your Tzeentch sorceror behind the obvious lines of the rubric marines.

That's how I'd be tempted to do it anyway.

Well a simple fix to that is adding a psycic power to your Raptor Lt. That suggests culty influences, and that yummy warp time spell will probably make up for the loss of furious charge.
