Your cost for both of your level two sorcerers is off, you have them at well below what they actually cost, so I would recheck your math on them.

I think that the Doom Totem is rather pointless here. You have a fast moving force which will probably see combat very quickly, limiting what units can draw line of sight to it.

I fail to see the point of the throwing axes either, you are going to be on them and in combat quickly, and that will stop your shooting.

Finally, you took a Chaos Lord, I think that this is a bad choice. Cost wise he isn't really worth it. You are better off taking another Exalted in his stead, or if you are dead set on a lord choice, take a Sorcerer Lord.

With the points you would free unp you could invest in some marks or some hounds. Slaanesh is dirt cheap for your knights and is really fantastic there. Also, you could get some much needed musicians on your horsemen as well.

I'd probably kit out your two warrior characters to be a bit harder hitting as well.

;) I would throw in at least one Chariot for variety + hitting power. Maybe consider Flails on a Unit or tWo of M Horse instead of Throwing Axes. Drop a unit of Knights and get hounds and another Chariot for your Exaulted Champ BSB. Three Units of Knights should be enougth!

It is better, but your still off on your Sorcerers cost. They should be at 181. I would reccomend investing in musicians for your horsemen for sure.

Chariots are not 2-for-1, so if you want to run two of em you gotta drop a unit of knights, or give the second chariot to your lord.

Because the mark is 20 points, not 15.

Well I already mentioned that you could get by better without spending the extra points on a Lord, but you shot that down.

Simply put though, in a fast all out attack army, you shouldn't be relying on his wounds (3 vs 2), you should be trying to steamroll through the enemy. An exalted in a unit of Knights should have little issues with this.
