Default Rapture Batallion 1500 pts Emperor Children

Hi guys, in my last game i had some luck with a simple cad, using raptors and rhinos.
This time i'll want to get use of the rapture batallion rules and also get rid of rhinos. Also, i've a bunch of Raptors that i want to field, hence the Talon as auxiliary.
My usual opponent seems to be orks, at this moment, so fear causing units are extra handy.
So, at 1500 pts:

Chaos Warband

-Slaanesh Terminator Lord
combiplasma, poweraxe (127)

-3 Slaanesh terminators
3 combiplasma, poweraxes (124)

-3 Slaanesh Bikers
2 meltaguns (96)

-5 Slaanesh marines
combiplasma, flamer

-5 Slaanesh marines
combiplasma, flamer
(200)

-5 Slaanesh Havocs
4 autocannons
(125)

-5 Slaanesh Havocs
2 missile launchers, 2 autocannons
(135)

Raptor Talon

-Slaanesh Lord
jumppack, sigils, fisticlaws, DRUGS!
(170)

-5 Slaanesh Raptors
2 meltaguns, meltabombs
(130)

-5 Slaanesh Raptors
2 meltaguns, meltabombs
(130)

-10 Slaanesh Raptors
2 meltaguns, lightning claw, icon of excess
(265)

this should be 1502 (ok for my opponents)

The army wide DRUGS roll can be an hit or miss but i have melee covered by the raptors and bikers (WS is meh..., Attacks and STR results are extra good) and BS will just turn the havocs into sexmachines. As always Toughness boost is a boon for everyone and Init boost is moot all over the board. With just 1 "so-and-so" result and just 1 bad result, i am confident enough.
Also, no vehicles around so your opponent doesn't get easy killpoints. The jumplord will have 1d3+1 boost to stats thus becoming THE beatstick.
As usual Obsec havocs and fearless MSU marines squads are the best in objective games. The only thing i really miss are spawns. god how do i love spawns.
Any thoughts?
@DkMiBuch that is basically a rework of your list, with a raptor "deathstar" (more like DEADstar)

EDIT: modified marines loadout, thanks to @DaisyDuke for the hint.

looks solid, the only thing I can suggest is flamers and a combi plasma instead on the marine units. And what made you go for a unit of ten over another five man for the raptors?

agree on the marines units: much more flexible!

About the raptors, there are three reasons:
1) i needed a nice melee threat
2) i owe a full 10 of the new plastic raptors, one with the icon of slaanesh (from daemonettes sprue)
3) they look absolutely awesome
