Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hey all, after a few hits and misses with army selection I thought I would get some advice from someone else so here goes, my list atm is:
Lord w Res Orb and Warscythe
Lord w VoD
2x 12 Warriors
1x 10 Warriors
2x Heavy Destroyers
The VoD w Immortals and the warriors w the Res Orb and lith.
All comments and suggestions welcomed!!
I like it! Seems pretty solid. My only change would be (and this is because I've had bad luck with them) is to get rid of the heavy destroyers and either sink those points into more immortals and/or destroyers. My Heavy D's always miss, and get killed fairly easily. I always regret spending 65 points on those f'ers.

Hmm, well I prefer more immortals myself. 8-10 especially in that size. Also the warscythe on a foot lord is iffy, since he won't be seeing that much combat, you want to be able to shoot with your shooty squads.
I'd drop the warscythe, and one warrior out of each of the 12-man squads.
Add in an immortal then give the support lord gaze of flame to reduce enemy charging attacks.
Or you could instead drop four warriors and the warscythe for an extra destroyer and the gaze, split destroyers into 2 squads of 3.
Ah , I missed the scythe... Yeah, thats a waste of points.
Also don't ever user gaze of flame with your Immortals unless you're going against tau or or IG or some other army that can't handle an assault. I'm guessing with the VoD you plan on mostly shooting and moving. If you get assaulted during this, a GoF won't do jack for you since when you use the Veil, your Immortals will surround your Lord, thus not activating the GoF. To negate the bonus charge with the Gaze, the assaulting unit needs to be in base contact with the Lord.
This is just me, but I don't like all those points in 2 HD's that can be negated WBB so easily! I would take 1-2 more regular destroyers and break them into 2 squads allowing you to spread targets effectively. 3 shots of S6 is just as good as 1 shot of S9, especially with gauss (weapon destroyed and immobilize is just as good). If you choose just one more destroyer, fill up the immortal squad (personally I like destroyers more). Heck if you do 2 destroyers, you have pts for 1 more immortal anyway.
The only other thing I see is you only have 2 squads capable of capping objectives! Another personal thing I do is take 10 warriors per 500pts I'm playing (at least). So I'd be doing 3 squads of 10, myself. Maybe shrink the immortals, or something of that nature. It's alot of points for 2 lords, I tend to walk my immortals with a res orb lord, and field destroyers. I've stopped the circus myself.

Wow excellent responses!
Darktrainer: there are 2 x 12 warrior squads and 1 x 10 warrior squad in this list.
Stabby and Elzer: good ideas, losing the HDs and making the destroyers 2 squads of 3, also filling out the immortals squad could be the way to go. Actually the HDs could be why I having a few misses w army selection :-D
It's ok to not use heavy destroyers, but I strongly suggest some other sort of tank-killer (wraiths/tombspyders) for 5ed. I like being able to spend shots on troops not just stun vehicles the whole game.
