Hmm. Your list looks fine as a base, but I find it looks a bit inefficient.

A single vindicator will easily be taken out or ignored, so it's either 3 or none. And for the record, daemonic possession is a must!

The best configuration for the Chosen would probably be 2 flamers, 3 meltaguns with a rhino, allowing them to outflank and reliably take out some enemy rearguard. However, I find them to be quite poor for what they do, and are, again, easily ignored and/or dealt with when the time arrives. Points better spent in heavy support.

Plague marine squad is too large for what it does in a list like yours, really. Keep it minimal, to be honest. They are your rear defenders, and as such don't need to be as plentiful as your hammer: The berzerkers. Who, are fine.

Here is a modified list, based on yours:

i'd run this list as is, but a single Vindie is a bit of a concern.

however, instead of making drastic changes, drop the Vindie, one PM, and downgrade one plasma gun to melta on your PM squad and you have the points for a two model Oblit unit.

other advice: since your PM squad is obviously supposed to be your 'at home' unit, why not go with a flamer and a melta?

not a necessary change though.

good hunting.

Inquisitor Malaclypse's advice is solid, i'd go with it.

And if you can spare some pts consider a rhino for the choosen so you can outflank relatively safe.

Hope this helps, good luck!
