    Nice setup here...

    Troops:
    10x Chaos marines
    2x Mletaguns; champion; powerfist; IoCG
    220

    Nice setup here

    8x Khorne berzerkers
    Skull champion; power fist
    Rhino
    243

    Drop the rhino as it is the only piece or armour you have..

    7x Plague marines
    2x Plasmaguns
    191

    Fine

    6x Noise marines
    5x Sonic blasters; blastmaster
    185


    Fine

    9 thousand sons,
    1 sorcerer, doombolt 277 points

    Fine...Though this squad is quite large compared to your others but I like the fluffiness you bring to the list...

    5x Havocs
    2 lascannons, 2 Missle launchers
    185 points.


    You need more ranged antitank you really don't have any in this list...I suggest dropping a squad so you can concentrate on getting some more, maybe a vindicator or just 2x pred with side lascannon sponsons...But you need something...

    It's a great idea - the 4 winds of chaos. Much respect for doing the idea.

    However, I must say, then when writing lists for myself, I can never get a tactically solid build until 2000 points or more... anyway:

    Daemon prince
    Wings; mark of Tzeentch; warptime; bolt of change
    200
    It's a great unit. However, look at the price tag. In all honesty, this dude is far too expensive for the 1500 arena - he'S well over 1/10th of your army. Considering you already have expensive troop choices, you need to cut corners where you can.

    Like i said, great unit.. but you may have to compromise somewhere.

    Troops:
    10x Chaos marines
    2x Mletaguns; champion; powerfist; IoCG
    220
    No complaints really. Some may complain about the lack of a ride, but foot slogging works and will be more powerful in the next edition.

    8x Khorne berzerkers
    Skull champion; power fist
    Rhino
    243
    Perfect load out for Zerkers.

    7x Plague marines
    2x Plasmaguns
    191
    Good load out for plague marines. Shame about the champ, but never mind. Still a solid squad.

    6x Noise marines
    5x Sonic blasters; blastmaster
    185
    Simple, but in my opinion effective. Nice mobile shooting.

    5x Havocs
    2 lascannons, 2 Missle launchers
    185 points.
    I like this heavy weapon load out. Although meat shields are losing importance in the next codex, it's still worth investing in them now.

    9 thousand sons,
    1 sorcerer, doombolt 277 points
    Once again, shame on the rhino, but this is generally how to take 1K sons.

    Ok Hashu.

    all my comments for your individual units are positive you'll notice. However, the army as a whole isn't solid in my opinion.

    The reason for this is that, solid units still need to able to work together.

    I am an Alpha Legion player, so I will always preach in the ways of troops, and I salute you for almost filling your troop slots....

    however, balance is always needed, and I'll never fill troop slots just for the sake of it.

    Troops are amazing.. but only as a lynch pin supported by heavy weapons fire, aided in combat by raptors/daemons, having forward threats eliminated by terminators etc.

    The new Chaos dex truly needs to work as a concert for it to succeed.

    Your units are all great individually, but they have very little synergy between the units.

    It's a great and fluffy army... but you may have to compromise on several elements if you want it to be truly competitive.

    Good luck.

    I think the lascannons on your havocs are too expensive for not having any kind of meat shield. You're better off have ML x4 and then use the pts somewhere else. See if you can cut elsewhere and maybe take another rhino or some long range anti tank
