Default 1000pts CSM vs Necrons

Hello everyone.
Tomorrow is going to be a big day - mi fifth batte ever!
My Alpha Legion (all Dark Vengeance minis save DA Captain, 15 CSM and Rhino and Aegis defence line) against guy who recently switched from Imperial Guard to Necrons. As far as I know he have two battleforces, two Monoliths and perhaps a bit more, but since I don't have much experience and "big toys", we are keeping points low. So my idea, with a bit of proxy'ing, is:

HQ:
-Huron Blackheart

Troops:
-10 CSM
-powerfist
-plasma pistol
-plasma gun
-meltagun
-Icon of Vengeance

-10 CSM
-plasma pistol
-plasma gun
plasma gun

Elites:
-5 Terminators
-chainfist
-3 powerfists
-autocannon

Fast Attack:
-3 Bikers
-2 plasma guns

Heavy Support:
-5 Havocs
-4 autocannons

I don't have much models and options, besides I want my army to be balanced between fluffy-ness and competetiveness, hence Powerfist on one Champion. I know it's not good idea to give Unwieldy weapon to Character who must always Challenge, but I like it.

All I know about 'Crons is:
-they have low Initiative
-they are tough
-they can glance everything to death on breakfast

Any comments and critique much appreciated.

Personally I think you should be fine at 1k points with that list.

i'd remove plasma pistols and add power weapons to the marines units.
the first marines unit need to focus on plasma or melta. both will be hampering each other.
2 lightning claws and 2 power axes on the termins should be better. You could even gather some 50 points to get a cheap cultist unit

O'kay, I just realised that I can use Chosen as Chapions, eh.
I was thinking about it a bit more and here's what I am considering now:

HQ:
Blackheart

Troops:
10 CSM
-twin Lightning Claws
-meltagun
-meltagun
-Icon of Vengeance

10 CSM
-powr weapon
-plasma gun
-plasma gun

10 Cultists
-flamer/heavy stubber

Elites:
5 Terminators
-2 Power Axes
- 2 Lightning Claws

Fast Attack:
3 Bikers
-2 plasma guns

Heavy Support:
5 Havocs
-4 autocannons

He's probably going to field "almost all infantry".
