Just because I love the idea of a legion of vikings marching towards the enemy, I thought up this rather fluffy and incredibly symmetrical 2500 point list. Would it be any fun to play, I wonder?
General: Sorcerer Lord. Level 4. MoT. Talisman of Preservation, Charmed Shield, Ironcurse Icon, Stream of Corruption, Sword of Might, Spell Familiar. 420 points.
General's steadfast bunker of ravenous cunning: 49 Marauders. MoT. Full Command. Shields. 5 wide, 10 deep. 285 points.
BSB: Exalted Hero. MoS. Talisman of Endurance, Enchanted Shield, Soporific Musk, Shrieking Blade. 205 points.
BSB's steadfast bunker of drunken revelry: 49 Marauders. MoS. Full Command. Shields. 5 wide, 10 deep. 275 points.
Wulfrik the Wanderer: 185 points.
Wulfrik's band of teleporting womanizers: 49 Marauders. MoS. Full Command. Great Weapons. 10 wide, 5 deep. 275 points.
Tchar's not so Khorny facebreakers: 50 Marauders. MoT. Full Command. Great Weapons. 10 wide, 5 deep. 290 points.
Those who ride with pointy sticks: 5 Marauder Horsemen. MoT. Musician. Shield, Spear, Throwing Spears. 106 points.
Those who ride with BDSM toys: 5 Marauder Horsemen. MoS. Musician. Light Armour, Flails, Throwing Axes. 106 points.

Might be a good idea to move this to the army list page.
As for my opinion... you don't want it. I hate marauders. But you'll find plenty of others who share your marauder love.
Fear me, mortals, for I am The Anointed, The Favored Son of Chaos, The Scourge of the World. The armies of the Gods rally behind me, and it is by My Will and by My Sword that your weakling nations shall fall. - Archaon, The Everchosen, Lord of the End Times
If your goal is theme, I think you've done a decent job. If your goal is to win games... this could use more Khorne, and you really do need Warriors for the matchups that Marauders can't handle.

Does not really look scary. At all. But I do like the theme though, even while that bloodhungry growling voice in my head that you do not hear tells me "why not Khorne? Khorne would work better! BLOOOOOODD!".
If I'd try to do something similar - I would take 4x5 dogs (or 2x10, depending on opponent), no shooting on marauder horsemen, and 3-6 Ogres just for fun.
Fluff wise the list is brilliant...I think you lack killing power big time. Without warriors in there you'll run into the odd unit that just messes up your marauders and that could go bad for you, especially without MoK on either unit.
I think lore of death, shadow or heavens would benefit this list more than tzeentch ever could...but that's just my opinion.
Maybe for a bit of extra killy power, you could grab stream of corruption for you BSB instead, maybe drop the enchanted shield he's tough enough and for only 5 points more steam of C. would be more effective IMO as it helps out in challenges as well.
