Lots of good advice here. I'll use Luke's suggestion as a base here . . .

2- Rhinos

With this in mind you should have enough to make any of the following
10 man chosen squad with actually useful special weapons
2X8 havoc squads with what ever weapons you want
10X2 Marines squads with all the bells and whistles riding in transports
I would honestly add in at least 1 box of possessed not for the unit itself, but as a source of conversion parts. I don't know how good the possessed in the crimson slaughter book really are, but I think the possessed arms, heads, bodies, legs, etc. add a great source of variety in other units. Especially if you might be mixing and matching chaos parts and imperial parts. The possessed sprues give you a nice way to spread the mutation of the Dark vengeance chosen around.

Get a box of CSM and a Rhino. That's the core of any army when you are starting off.

The Dark Vengeance CSMs literally have nothing that causes any damage. So, before buying anything, I'd have a strong think about what you want out of the army.
Along side a squad of CSM in a rhino, a unit of Obliterators will add some much needed firepower to your army. However, you will still be fairly slow. So a Heldrake would also be a viable option.

I personally would discount the cultists entirely, and focus on building a core.

CSM box & a rhino.

a Chaos Predator OR Vindicator (if you want more tanks)

Forge World Legion heavy weapons (most go with Autocannons for havocs)

Get the Crimson Slaughterer codex too.

To be honest it's not a bad supplement and works well with everything.

I'll be running my malal list using Black Legion / Crimson Slaughter as allies.
