i would take the 2nd one....
The terminators are too much for such a small points game. Chaos cult marines are awesome and made better as they are troops! make sure you fill up on them.
I would personally loose the pred, take a second rhino for other squad, loose the combi melta on rhino and take a 3rd obliterator.....
also depending on your oponents may be worth keeping the flamer on the defiler.... much better against hordes....
hope this helps

The second list is solid. However, I have a couple questions.

1) Why do you have Plague Champs in the Plague Marine squads with no special weapon? You're spending 15 points on +1 Attack (on 1 model) and +1 Leadership on a squad that is Fearless. I think you'd be better off using that 15 points to get a second Melta/Plasma/Flamer. Or, use the 30 points (15 per squad) and your 5 extra points to get the second squad a Rhino.

2) Why are you taking Daemonic Possession on your Pred? I'm not saying that this is the wrong choice, its just good to think about what you're doing with it. Running it with Combi-Melta means you are going to need to be within 12" of the side or back of most enemy tanks. To do this you'll need to be crossing the field rapidly (12" a turn vs 6") so chances are you will not be doing much shooting. With BS3 from DP you're looking at 4+ to hit on two dice that will probably need a 4+ to glance (vs Armor 11). This means you will average 1 hit and will Glance/Pen with that one hit 50% of the time. All in all, you might be better served dropping DP and finding 10 points to give him Heavy Bolter side sponsons. This increases your shot output by 6 and means you hit ~66% of the time. It will also help you vs Horde :)

3) Your Defiler seems confused to me. He (she?) is in a mid-range list that isn't assaulty or really shooty (which is fine). Annette (do you mind if I call your defiler Annette?) is dedicated assaulty. This could provide a great fire-magnet....but it means that poor Annette will most likely be a smoking pile of twisted metal by turn 2...Which means you'll be out 150 points. Enough to buy two Oblits or a Vindicator with points left over.

All in all, I think you have a solid list to start tweaking. Let us know how it plays.
