So I've been drinking a little and I was thinking about something nasty I could throw at my friends or people at the local store.
This list will probably come under attack by a few SM & Eldar, followed by tyranids, IG, and tau.
New edited list:
Chosen * 10
Plague Marines * 8
2 * Plasma Gun
Twin-linked pintle mount
Plague Marines * 8
2 * Plasma Gun
Berzerkers * 8
Raptors * 8
2 * Meltas
Oblits * 2
All for a total of 1846.
Anyone think I need more vehicles? Or is this enough? If not maybe I should take out the chosen squad and replace them with 2 Dreads with multi-meltas, add another berzerker, and add another twin-linked pintle mounted bolter to the other rhinos.
1 multi-melta dread, add another oblit. , 2 more berzerkers, and 2 pintle mounted bolters.
However, I think removing the chosen squad and placing in any of the other choices would make things harder to take out vehicles.

Its all up to you about dropping the noise marines, but I wouldn't do it for a 3 man terminator squad and more raptors. If you really want to drop them, then I would get 1 more raptor with icon of slannesh or khorne, depending on what you want. And then expanding the chosen you can by increasing them to 10 and adding a powerweapon with an icon of slannesh or khorne (I prefer slannesh on the chosen, but meh).
Adding that other Daemon Prince is a good option, but I'd go with more troops to round out the list.
Well the reason I was thinking about trying out a small squad of noise marines is because:
1) nasty 2/3 shots depending on whether I move or not
2) higher init
3) blastmaster causes pinning
I only wish I could afford to make the squad bigger, or at least make 1 guy a champ with p. wpn. O well...
Hopefully that's enough vehicles to frustrate the enemy a little.
I'm curious if I have enough anti-tank.
As of the moment I think you'd be better of with 2 preds with lascannon instead of your defilers as your a little short on anti tank.
After doing this I'd change the melta chosen to plasma because I'm not a fan of chosen being an anti tank unit. IMHO the chosen should be there to harass heavy and or medium infantry.
I know thats kind of a big change so if not that than just replace the berserkers with a squad with meltas and the icon of Khorne.
I have the plague marines to harass heavy infantry. Not only do they have delicious plasma guns, but a p.fisting champ., and have a lesser chance of taking wounds from getting hot.
I keep thinking of throwing out the noise marines.
The demon prince still seems like a great option because it becomes a high priority target by the enemy, yet still has a 4+ inv. save. Not to mention he can be used very well vs. all ranges of enemies.
I believe the chosen need to be how they are since I need more anti-tank. Not to mention I'd like to use them sometimes vs infantry or big creatures. That high STR and low AP can be quite nasty. Also, it's cheaper and less dangerous than plasmaguns.
Maybe I could put in 2 oblits, personal icons on all 3 troop choices, and I.o.S. on the raptors. That way I can use the oblits vs. anti-tank/heavy infantry/infantry, depending on the situation. The personal icons help me have an option of deepstriking them closer to where I want them IF I want them to deepstrike. This can come quite in handy since I can place their template within 6" of any of 4 squads. Which is highly probably that I can pop out, and instantly unload some nasty ranged wpns. vs. w/e I want.
