Default New Hordes of Chaos army for 7th ed - 1000 points

So with 7th ed here I want to start a new army. I've finally decided on what to do as well. Being halfway through reading the Liber Chaotica I've fallen prey to it's foul depradations and succumbed to worship of the dark ones.

So I'm planning on an Undivided Hordes army, and I've got a 1000 point list that I think should be fun to use. I tried something similar against a friend in a proxy game and it was good fun (for me!)

Exalted Champion w/ barded chaos steed, sheild, mark of chaos undivided
118

Sorcerer w/ 2nd level, barded chaos steed
136

5 Chaos knights w/ mark of khorne
210

5 Chosen knights of chaos, standard bearer, musician, mark of chaos undivided
255

5 Warhounds
30

3 Dragon Ogres w/ light armour and aditional hand weapons
231

Total: 980

Subtle it ain't, but it's fast and it hits very hard! With 4 dispell dice I think it can very easily hold its own against any magic I'll encounter at this level and the wizard can do some damage. However I'm not against taking the wizard out and replacing him with more troops, in particular I'd like something with the mark of Slanesh in my army, since I find that chaos troops run, a LOT.

Advice appreciated and welcome, as usual!

I'd lose the Chosen upgrade and drop them back to normal Knights, give them the Mark of Slaanesh and full command. They won't back as much of a punch then but just put your Hero with them.

I'd always give the Dragon Ogres Great Weapons, Ive used a small unit of Dragon Ogres like that for years and they are lethal with Great Weapons. They can then smash apart Chariots, War Machines or go hunting for big nasty things. Plus they have low Initiative so your not losing anything by usually striking last.

You may have to drop the Hounds to find the points but it's no big loss. Or you may have to drop a level on the Sorcerer, which again should'nt be a problem. I'd just be using him for magic defense anyway.

I think I'll keep the knights as Chosen, they're just SOOO good. Also I find having two units of knights, both with 2 Strength 5 attacks/model is really nerve wracking for my opponent. Also if the knights get MoS then the Character can't join them unless HE has MoS and if he has MoS then the other knights can't have MoK.

You see my dillema?

Great weapons are good for Dragon ogres, but I really like the tought of 4 (or is it 5) strength 5 attacks each. Though that's definitley one I'll have to give more thought to.

Thanks for the advice, i'll mull stuff over and try some things out. Good old paper hammer!
