500pt army list (I think I could improve it with help.)

HQ:

Chaos Lord: 1
Terminator Armour
Power-weapon
Combi-melta
Personal Icon
Mark of Slaanesh

Troops:

Chaos Space Marine Squad 1
Chaos Space Marines: 8

Chaos space Marine Squad 2
Chaos Space Marines: 8
Aspiring Champion: 1
Powerfist

Chaos Rhino: 1
Daemonic posession
Combi-plasma

This is my army list. I need help improving it as I get killed by the Tau and Space Marines. I thought posting my list here can help.

A squad of zerks and a dreadnaught should fix both of those problems! If you want to play it safe put havocs in a rhino, the havos supplie heavy support and the rhino allows them to quickly capture the highground where their heavy weapons rain heck down on your enemy!!

without any lesser daemons the Greater Daemon would be butcherd! (Did I spell that right?)

A daemon prince in a 500 point game is a wee bit over priced.
As is a knitted out chaos lord, for that reason.
Drop everything on the lord. Terminator Armor is really just a slight perk in such a small game, the power weapon means he's going to suck in close combat due to lack of attacks, the combi-melta... it's useful. But you want to take twin lighting claws instead. Drop the Personal Icon, because it's useless if nothing's deep striking.

Daemonic Possession and combi-plasma on the rhino are pretty much useless, too. Let it be naked. That gives you enough points, on top of pushing the lord down, to get -another- rhino; which means you'll pretty much have the mobile advantage every time.

With your last points, try to give that spare squad of marines a bit of a punch (champion or special weapon), on top of pushing the squads up and giving them more special weapons (although again; in 500 points, there's not a huge worry of anything past transport vehicles (which you won't need more than bolters or CC to deal with) or marines (as they won't be taking terminators!))

And to go off topic; a greater daemon without lesser daemons won't necessarily get butchered. After all, all it needs to do is get into close combat and it can have buckets'o'fun!

I'll get to my army list now. I thought 500pts are just compulsory units (1HQ, 2Troops). I really am confused now.

Oh yeah about the greater daemon I almost killed my friend's Tau commander before but it butchered by a Hammerhead.

EDIT: All done! Its has:

Chaos Lord:
Twin Lightning Claws
Mark of slaanesh

Chaos Marine squad 1:

Chaos Marines: 10
Flamer
Lascannon

Rhino

Chaos Marine squad 2:

Chaos Marines: 9
Meltagun

Rhino

Heres an idea:

Chaos Lord, MoK, Meltabombs - 105

10xCSM; 2xPlasma Guns, Rhino - 165

9xKhorne Berzerkers; Rhino - 224

Total: 494

CSM take objective (if there is any) and provide fire cover, the Lord and the Zerkers go and rape everything. Everyone is afraid of Zerkers.

Or if you want to stick to vanilla CSMs:

Chaos Lord; Meltabombs - 95

9xCSM; Champ, Flamer, Rhino - 190

10xCSM; Champ, Plasma Gun, Rhino - 215

Total: 500

Or if you're playing on a table so small that Rhinos are useless/you hate the other player + you're insane (my case):

Chaos Lord, Personal Icon - 95

Chaos Dreadnought; Multi-melta - 100

Chaos Dreadnought; 2xDCCW, Heavy Flamer - 105

5xCSM; Champ, Flamer - 95

5xCSM; Champ, Flamer - 95

Total: 500

One of these could be a good idea I think.

The fool, the coward, and the ignorant proclaim that the warp is a realm of unknowable peril and indescribable terror, that it is the hell of countless ancient myths and legends. This is a lie, told by those whose authority is based on lies, to keep the masses terrified of the unknown. The warp is limitless power and its secrets are infinite; it is knowledge and strength, life and death, and the untapped potential to make and remake worlds. It takes only the discipline and the will to shape it; those who lack that clarity of purpose are liable to be shaped by it instead.

500 is hard for csm.
No need for MoS on the lord, - he is already I5.

Chaos Lord - MoK, dual lc

5 Berserkers - rhino
10 CSM - IoCG, champ, 2 X melta, rhino
500 points

Lord rides with the berserkers. The CSM push with the lord and melta anything that is mechanized or large and threatening asap, then run and sit on an objective. If there are no objectives, they are countercharge support for the 'serker squad. The lord and berserkers massacre everything on the board. They get 6 I5 power weapon attacks that reroll wounds and 20 I4 attacks on the charge.

You should replace the daemon lord instead with some possesed CSMs, they are QUITE efective!

how would u swap him out you need an HQ
but yea im in a 500 point tourney this weekend and i think im gonna run

Sorcerer-MoS, LoS -125
Zerkers- 5x,champ w/ PW -135
CSM-10x, champ w/ meltabombs , meltagun, missle launcher-170
rhino- either combi or havoc launcher, deamonic possesion -70

Sorcerer rides with zerkers in rhino, using LoS to pull enemy into assault range for zerkers, and CSM deal with other units or mainly enemy vehicles

any suggestion would be greatly appreciated
