Welcome to Librarium Online!
Thinking if this build is possible(legal) for a choas lord.
Additional hand weapon
Mark of khorne
Giving a total of 10 attacks strenght 5 attacks, which would be a great infantry slayer. If possible.

While I like your thinking, sadly that build isn't quite possible. The reason is that you can't mix mundane weapons with magical weapons, meaning the additional hand weapon and the Sword of Bloodshed (which I assume you meant?) get in each other's way. That said, of course, taking the Sword of Bloodshed and the Mark of Khorne still gives you a Chaos Lord with nine attacks, which isn't hugely shabby. You've then got plenty points left over to make your Lord even more powerful.
Of course, you have the problem of running a character which, so far, costs 285 points. Warriors of Chaos excel at killing infantry. It's something we arguably do better than any other army in the game. Your character costs nearly enough to add another unit of 18 Warriors with halberds - I'd ask whether it's worth the points cost. You're also likely denying yourself the chance to run a level 4 spell caster.
On the other hand, give him some form of protection and mount him on a monster of some sort - say, a Manticore or a Dragon - and you have a model which gives you a beautiful centrepiece to your army and will eat units for fun. I guess it depends what your focus is.
Happy new year!
Yeah I would agree that it is fun to conceptualize what potential chaos lords could do to enemies, but unfortunately, they tend to be a waste of points in 8th edition. All they do is a ton of attacks, and warriors can do the same thing for the same price, and bring a lot more wounds to the table.
If you really wanted to bring a combat lord, go all out and put him on a dragon. Give him mostly protection (believe me, he will have no problem mincing opponents). Give him Bronze Armor, Talisman of Preservation, and the Crown of Command, with Mark of Tzeentch, Stream of Corruption, a halberd and a shield. That gives him a permanent 3+ ward, immune to psych, killing blow, and poison, he has a 2+ armor against shooting, he has 11 Str6 attacks with the dragon AND 3 breath weapons AND thunderstomp, and if he loses combat to CR because he's on his own, he's Stubborn LD9. That being said, he is 700+ points, so he will only show up in large games, and he better get to work quick because you will be out-magicked and he needs to get his points back.

*points upward* What Brock said.
Actually, the Dragon Lord that Brock suggested will probably be my centrepiece for massive games. I love that build. With regards the thread on spending points "for fun", I will definitely be experimenting with that filth-monger. Nice one.
I think you're better off tooling Lords up to thrash big monsters. For a few reasons.
1] It's the only way he'll make his points back. killing 10 Gobbos a turn won't make his points back. Killing a Stone Horn is a big chunk of the way there.
2] Warriors/Marauders have no problem dealing with infantry. What they really have problems with is the nasty, high toughness, monsters. Characters are there to fill in and cover your infantries weaknesses.......... so thats what they should be tooled up to do.
I really like this build. It's not tooled to kill Monsters (The Glaive and potion of might is good for that) but it can make a mess of them and slice through infantry.............and characters.
Lord, MoT, Preservation, Glittering Scales, HoME, Halberd.
Chuck him in a unit with Banner of Rage or Flaming attacks and he can put out some real hurt. Hitting a lot of times at str6 and most characters will be hitting him on 5's and most infantry on 6's.
I don't think I'd use it in competitive games, but there are some seriously beautiful models out there. I'd LOVE to have a fully-built and painted dragon model in my army, just for the occasional fun game.
Why not use the Chaos Lord on Manticore model? It's impressive looking and comes with killing blow too.
