Alright, I've pooled everything in my collection to create a new list for my chaos warband, and was looking for suggestions. I'm split between two different predators, which I'll post in the heavies section of my list.

HQ-

Chaos Lord-145
Pair of Lightning Claws
Combi-Melta
Mark of Khorne
Melta Bombs

Troops-

Thousand Sons(Model count 9)-289
8 Sons
Sorcerer with Doombolt
Rhino

Khorne Berzerkers(Model count 8)-258
7 Zerkers
Skull Champ with Power Fist
Rhino- EA

Fast-

Raptors-(Model count 6)-150
6 Raptors, 2 Meltaguns, ICG

Heavy-

Predator-145
Twin Linked Lascannon
Heavy Bolterx2
Combi-Flamer(to combat the horde armies I tend to run into at gameday)

or

Predator-145 (The one I favor due to it's MC killing potential.)
AutoCannon
Lascannonx2
Havoc Launcher

Total-987 (13 points left over, not to sure were to put it.)

My general strategy has the Sons holding the objective, while the Zerkers(+ the lord) move out with cover from the Son's rhino. The raptors ride behind the rhinos popping tanks when needed. All while the predator lays down cover fire.

take the MC killing pred, it doubles for the ability to take out other tanks/APCs.

id drop the 6th raptor for a 2xLC champ

Hmm... I think drop the melta bombs on the Lord, and give him wings and stick him the in raptor squad, since the raptors already have a fair bit of anti tank.

I would also take the last predator you mentioned because you have the havoc launcher to deal with hordes, and autocannon.

All in my opinion! :D

Drop the melta bombs. And with 2 claws you have no side arm...so drop the combi-melta

The rulebook says you May take one of the following, and lists the TL bolter and Combi.

You don't have to exchange the bolt pistol (like you do to take a plasma pistol)

How you fire that thing with those long pointy blades is up to you (servo arm, a convenient mutation of a third arm, etc)

I second giving the lord wings. Berzerker squads usually kill what ever you point them at and won't really need the lords help. You can run him with the raptors or keep in the rhino ( wings fit in a rhino, its in the FAQ) and separate him if you get him into range of a particularly squishy unit

MC killing pred FTW.

Not to be a d*ck or anything but about 5 boards down from this you also had a post about a 1000pt Warband which people were trying to help you with. It seems like its a bit of bad form to post about the same thing twice unecessarily as you knock everyone elses lists down, decreasing the likely hood for comments about them.
