Comes to 1998.
If in a more "competetive" enviornment or a less firiendly one I can drop tzangors and swap for a changeling in an HQ slot or as an Aux. This gives -1 to hit against mauler/defiler/forge/magnus/daemon prince.
Leviathan is a monster in all respects and doesn't really need the -1, and the contemptors I have found are pretty solid all around, mine in particular help grind infantry due to kheres and weight of fire.
Forgefiend helps with vehicles AT/Anti-terminator, Tzaangors block out enemy deepstrikers on one side and go from there, as well as being decent in melee.
Everything in the list nearby to magnus gets the re-roll invuls of a 1, and re-roll "to hits" of a 1. as all detachments are thousand sons marked. I always felt chaos can pull off the "monster mash" just as well as any nid list in 8th.
