I dare say VotLW is wasted on the fearless Lord (where it costs a bunch more, anyways).

The Termis look good, though I'd be tempted to go for power axes (and/or seeing if you can't fit on a power/chainfist, so they can melee a tank if he survives one round of enemy shooting).

I can't help but think that the first two squads of Noise Marines would benefit from having a Doom Siren more than a power weapon, of they have one at all. They can use it as shooting/Overwatch, so it meshes with the squad slightly better. That is, if you buy the champ anything at all, not instead buying a bunch more sonic weapons.

I'd be tempted to drop the Raptors altogether and replace them with more bikes.

Still, solid start to the list, and I can see it being fun!

I was thinking of dropping the Power Sword on the 2 champs that would save 30 pts. to use elsewhere
I was also thinking I should some plasma Guns too.

Lord - Drop veterans.

Termies - Add one p.fist.

Troop 1 & 2 - Drop p.weapons, go up to 7 sonic blasters each.

Troop 3 - I prefer a lightning claw as it goes better with your dirge caster(better if you charge).

Helldrake - I've never used one.

Bikers - Since this is the retinue for your lord, add more bodies.

Raptors - Drop for a predator with only TL lascannon. Use the leftover points to add more bikes. This is one of the rare times when I think this configuration works. It can start popping armor turn 1 while staying mobile with the rest of your army, rather than waiting for your melta/deepstrike to get in range. More importantly, it can draw fire away from your vindicator and rhinos. Registering as a big enough threat to allow more reliable delivery of their payload.

Vindicator - Until your helldrake comes in, this looks like the priority 1 target for anti-tank. It seems unlikely to get a good shot with its cannon which is why I suggest adding the predator as another threat starting on the table.
