    Pretty good list overall. There are a few things that could be tweaked. Let's start from the beginning:

    Chaos Lieut: Good. He's the cheapest you can make him, while still preserving his basic offense. He's got the same base offense of his Lord counterpart at 150+ points. Good Job.

    Obliterators: Good.

    Troops: Basic configuration is good. The heavy bolter is going to cause serious problems, as this unit should be advancing each round. Stopping to fire the heavy bolter will encourage infoming enemy ranged fire, and this is counter-productive to the purpose of the squad. Change it out for another plasma gun.

    Side: Plasma guns can work fine in c.c. units, so long as you understand how to properly use them. You must be willing to rapid fire the round prior to assaulting, and then commit to the assault the next round (even though you won't be able to fire your plasma guns during the actual assault). Statistically, you'll produce the same number of shots with the plasma gun, as you will with it's cousin, the melta gun. Actually, you'll be producing 2 of the shots earlier, given the nature of rapid fire.

    Havocs: Add one more autocannon. This is completely optional, since you're playing in a 750 point game.

    Cultitst: What's the purpose of this squad? Yes, it will draw enemy fire, but I think you'd be better off dropping it, and then using the points to increase the squad total of your c.c. units or something similar.

    Since its 750, and its a economy Lt, I highly suggest swapping out spikey bits for resiliance, for cheapy lords resiliance is probably one of the best upgrades you can have.

    Hmmmm.... even at 750, I wouldn't field these guys under 15 strong, they just die that easily, especially since they don't even hide a cultist champ, they're just bodies for your oponent. How about considering another plas/HB squad and splitting down to 6 man between this one and the above one to get them both in. They will form a very nice gun line with your tank hunting autocannons. You lose the Acs, but gain quite a bit of fire power for 750.
