I think it's damn near perfect.
But, there are a couple things to change.
1. Don't forget to give the lord an extra CC weapon, or you may play some jagoff that faults you for it. Your lord seems badass to me, I wouldn't change him otherwise.
2.Ditch the rhino. One rhino, one turn, one penetrating hit and you're hoofin it.
3. Gotta go with powerfists instead of power weapon for all AC's. Nix Stregnth and add mutation. He'll be attacking forever, 17 wounds to get trhough til that things gone. That's a high point squad, so say they get into CC with a monstrous creature of a dreadnaught or something they can't hurt, you'll have all those points just sitting there getting killed with no way to attack back. That fist makes them more versitile. And in an army like you have, you don't have anyone that could really come to their rescue if they did get trapped in close combat they couldn't win. So fist 'em.
First of all, not to be rude, but this should be in the army list section... but ne who, a mod will probably move it for ya...
onto the list.
Chaos Lord: bit pricey but I've been known to sacrifice logic for style hehe.
Predators: I approve, though I like Dreads better... however I think thats just a style thing right now lol.
Thousand Sons As said before, I'd give em Powerfists instead of Powerweapons... but other than that, they are good stuff.
Rhino : Whos going in the Rhino? I assume its a TS unit..., but ne who, Give it Extra Armor and your all set. I like it because it gives the TS the bit of mobility that it needs... sure its made of tissue paper but hey, when you need cheap mobility, what better way to go?
You Can't Stop the Eighp
Had Tzeentch before I knew how to play :P
TS are hard to play. Although the most expensive unit I ever saw was in a TS army. It was a decked out lord with 4 terminator champs. All had tons of upgrades, all had wind of chaos. They were mounted in a LR. It would charge forward, 5x wind of chaos, and then assault. It was 800pts or something. Waaaaaaay expensive. But if ur on the other end of that charge... watch out!
Drop the Rhino. Completely useless. You can't transport any of your units in it as you have it. Or, you can instead drop three of the Thralls in one of the CSM squads. That might be a better choice. While a single Rhino is likely to get itself blown up, often times that added bit of speed is very nice to have.
Your lord looks legal, but he has a serious problem. He'll be all alone. You have three units footslogging and one summoned, and then a speedy Lord that is built for closing with the enemy. Lords are wonderful in Close Combat - but they still need to be supported. Being in close combat all by his lonesome will only get him killed.
Predator - Daemonic Possession before Mutated Hull. Always. Then Mutated Hull if you have left over points.
Lastly, I moved your thread to the correct subforum. Remember that army lists belong in the army list subforums.
thats funny, i posted this army list without the rhino and AC with power fist on another forum and everyone said that i should add D.Str and power weapon instead of Fist and put a Rhino to cover... lol.
For the lord, i think ill remove the Disk and add something else, ill equip him as a good melee beast but he will still be good in ranged(F3ar my 1337 b0l7 0f chang3).
Don't know if i can do this but can my AC have 2 melee weapon? for ranged attack they have Bolt of change so 2 melee weapon would be good, and can i add lot of D. gift ? less then 50 but can i?
Rhinos are great! expecially for missions that you need to take table corners or objectives! and once they get ur troops where they need to be, they block LOS!!! cant really beat that for 50pts!
and power fist > pw and d.str just need to convert some models.

It is indeed a well deserved reputation, but you carry this with pride and you've tought me to relax a bit too.
There is not very much more to add here, though this I must say:
One Rhino may not be the best but it is better then nothing, those 12" of movement can make quite some differance. But you should really take two, make the squads smaller and remember that the thralls might serve you better in CC then the Rubrics.
I use this (pricy but wonderful) setup:
5-6 Sons (depending on how many points we are playing) incl Champ
Rhino X-armour and Smoke.
Two such units can counter all the viscious CC-units my opponents throw at me.
As Caluin pointed out that Lord of yours is going to be a lone guy and he might die very quick. I prefer a cheap Lt with Bolt of Change and 4 Thralls, have him join a unit and blast away.
edited, opinion plz.
imo to many pts sunk into the preds.
i would lose the mut. haul atleast
