    At 1000pts, you could easily run with 30 warrors, lord w/ResOrb and deceiver (powerhouse unit). Just shoot everything that comes close and use the Deceiver as a counter assault unit/ dedicated CC units deterrent. Using the standard phalanx formation with the Deceiver in between you and the opponent. If you wish, you could sub out a warrior unit and put the destroyers in for long range firepower. With your current models, I would try this one (a few times with the additional warrior unit and a few times with the destroyer unit to see which best suits you).

    Or 20 warriors, lord w/ResOrb, destroyers, tomb spyder and monolith. Once again, its your standard phalanx buffered with a monolith and tomb spyder with destroyers for long range fire support. I wouldn't really call this a "good" list in terms of dishing out the most while taking the least back but its something to experiment with.

    Now, if you made the investment of getting an additional 4 destroyers (or at least 2 more), you could run 2 units of destroyers which is just brilliant. Improved WBB support from the other unit and more S6 shots (hooray!). Such a list would be:
    Lord w/ ResOrb
    2 x 10 warriors
    2 x 4 destroyers
    Fill out the last 100pts with either a tomb spyder + wargear or scarabs. You could go for an additional 4 warriors but its not going to help that much and is just sweeping fodder.
    Or go all the way with destroyers and field 2 x 5 when you get the models (absolute beast this is)

    Personally, I'd just try the list with the Deceiver and see what kind of success you have.

    Well, my 1000 point lists consists of:

    Orb Lord
    20x Warriors
    5x Destroyers
    Monolith

    This seems to work very effectively for me and you're only one model off. You could use the remaining points that you would have from only having 4 Destroyers and field a Tomb Spider.

    I could see a really balanced list coming out of this. I DO suggest getting more destoyers, but in 1k a squad of 4 is fine.

    Lord w/ orb
    Warriors 2x10
    Destroyers x4
    Tomb Spyder
    Monolith

    10 Extra points for fluff (maybe a warscythe or chronometron.)

    General phalans formation, Lord in one warrior squad. Put the tomb spyder near the other warrior squad as a counter charge unit. Keep a single scarab base on the spyder and don't be afraid to charge it straight into just about anything!

    Destroyers are your general "Kill that thing I don't like it" unit. Priority targets for them, weaken them, and warriors should be able to finish it off or deal with lighter targets once you close in.

    I suggest you throw the scarabs and the spyder and add 2 more destroyers and a res. orb to your lord.

    You could add a phylactery to your lord and it's exactly 1000.
