I would consider getting some havoc's as the slaanesh strategem allowing u to shoot twice be very fluffy and quite decent.

The terminators, I would consider going all the same weapons to maximise the unit firepower.

Maybe some rhinos for the noise and chaos marines

Can you list any spare models you have as it be easier to access and maximise the fluffy list you are going for

I have five more noise marines, 2 other helbrutes. 5 more termies, a Sorcerer in terminator armor, lord in terminator armor, 20 more cultists, 2 more Exalted champions (7ed aspiring champs) and lucius the eternal. I got the Forgefiend magnetized for conversion for other weapons or into a maulerfiend.

A rhino is the next on my purchase list, I wanted a more vehicle focused army hence the Warpsmith warlord.

Welcome to the boards!! That looks like a pretty good list for learning the ropes - Slanesh is pleased that you have devoted your worship to him/her/it.

Have you played any games with it yet? Depending on the lists that your opponents use (and how much terrain is on the board) you may find it difficult to move your troops. I would echo the need for a rhino or 2. Also, you may find that your terminators underperform. If you have the points to move around you may want to try some other, faster, options.

Let me know how your games go --
