Default Starting chaos army

Been playing tyranids for about 7 months and am about to start a chaos army. i was given some and will convert some from the deathstorm box. I prefer nurgle and think my first addition will be Typhus. was wondering with the current list what i should load out my army with. also what should be my next additions I am also considering conversions. as stated i played tyranids so space marine rules in general i am new to and do not fully know how to use them to my full advantage. I currently have.

1 Chaos lord in terminator armor
16 terminators
7 csm ( will convert to plague)
5 raptors
1 hell brute
2 oblitz
4 berserkers

i also have the following and am open to any conversion ideas
1 captain karlean
1 death company dread naught

well you definitely need some 20 cultists for troop base and then...i suggest bikers and some noise marines.

If I had to use the models you listed and nothing else:
Convert the berserkers and chaos marines into plague marines make a 5 man and a 6 man team
Keep ten terminators in two five man teams
Convert six terminators into two three man obliterater teams
Keep the rest as is.
Attach lords to the terminators squads then deep strike.
You will have a lot of 2+ armor and T5 with mark of nurgle but a very low model count.

i figured i would be needing some cultist. was planning on using typhus and having a mixture of plague and zombies as troops. i have not seen noise marines used are they a reliable elite choice.

Noise marines can be nasty with Pinning and Ignores Cover on their weapons, bigger units of them can get costly points wise though.
