Here is a list for an upcoming 2,500 point tournament, there are special rules each round focusing more on holding objectives then killing stuff. I tried putting units in that could/would hold objectives and units that would draw fire away from my objective holders.  I am planning on going second most rounds (as that seems the norm for me) and most players concentrate fire on my knight first.  I think if I start the possessed in the rhino as close to the enemy as possible then I could disembark and move first turn.  That would get me out 10" and then warptime them for another 7", bringing me close to a 7" charge.  Then move my CC marines into the rhino and move them up the board towards mid-field objectives.  This would leave my poxwalkers and 20 PM blob to hold closer objectives.  I have noticed as long as I have a unit in reserve, most people hold off when it comes to moving stuff forward.  So keeping my Blightlords off til turn 3 to grab an objective and board control seems like a good idea.
I know this is an unorthodox list for tournaments, as I do not have a lot of heavy hitters.  My first question is, does anyone think taking a Tallyman over Blightspawn would do this list better?  My next question would be is Morty a better option then the Knight?  I would have to swap out something for some Deathshroud, but with their lower price it might be a better option.
