    It's good that you've dug up those old models and decided to give them a whirl again. Your army looks pretty solid, though there are a couple of concerns, namely with your possessed, which I'll touch on later.

    I'll come back to your lord, but first let's talk about your possessed: The retinue is very expensive- over 60 points per model. At this price you can't afford to loose even one. Also in a 1500 point army it's best to stay clear of elites. I would advise you to take another troop squad, which has more staying power.

    Your lord looks good. If you decide to drop the chosen, then drop the lord's disk as well. Personlly, I prefer BoC, because of the 5 B.S. If you go w/ this suggestion, then you can drop warp focus as well. Termi armor is not a bad choice either

    All squads look solid.

    Good choice on the weapons configuration.

    I like Coruscating Flame, but there are lots of bugs in my environment. Unless you are facing alot of bugs, then the flame isn't worth it. Looks good otherwise

    I can but agree with what Boyd said. Only on one point I have a different oppinion and that's on the troops.
    It's about the last of the Squads, in which the Champ has Wind of Chaos and 4 thralls.

    Even though Wind is a very good spell indeed and I'm one big fan of petwizards (thralls) this unit really strikes me as...bad.
    Even though you can cast 2 Winds a turn for four turns I don't think you will. The Sons are way to slow for that. The Wind is depending on good positioning and this unit lacks the mobility to get where you want them.
    My advice would be to take three of the Rubriks from the squad and get a Rhino for them. Give the Champ a familiar and Gift of Chaos too

    Then for the points you get from obeying Boyds advice on the HQ and Elites you get another squad just like this.

    I also saw something when re-reading the list and that's on the HS's, why not swap the Parasitic Possession for Daemonic Possession? It would make your HS much more reliable and the cost would the same.
