    ...well if he's stupid - or self-confident - enough to give you details on what he's taking before you play, he deserves what's coming to him

    All in all, your army looks like it's pretty good (although if you're aiming for a thousand I think the general convention is +- 5 points) - but I don't know the terrain, or what kind of armament he's taking on his crisis suits. If the terrain is close, it'll be a miracle if he survives. If the terrain is sparse... the reverse is true.

    use your tyrant and his gaurd as a deversion and see if you can get him to waste all of his railgun shots on them. If you can get those genstealers into CC then it's pretty much all over for him. if he has an etherial, use that lictor to take him down and then his whole army has to take a morale check. just look for the best place for him to hide his etherial and hide your lictor right there.

    That means that Your enemy needs to roll to-hit with their BS-stat as normal, You can reposition the blast template as per the rulebook rules for Blast weapons, and it doesn't scatter.

    Your list itself looks very good, You should do pretty well with it.

    Get into his lines quickly. He may split his fire to dwindle down all of your squads. (This is good for you). By the time you're in combat, you'll still probably outnumber him, make good use of cover and kill that Hammerhead, it could lead to your downfall if ignored.
