I swept the competition in the last tourney with best general at 1500 pts. There's a new one coming up at 2000, and I wanted to write a list that made use of Malekith effectively. On a dragon, magic missiles could smoke the snot out of him, but on foot, in a unit, he becomes protected and effective as a support character--his best role.

So this is what I've got:

Lord - Malekith - 600 pts.

Hero - Sorceress, Lv. 2, Seal of Ghrond, Tome of Furion - 180 pts.
Hero - Death Hag - Cauldron, Hand of Khaine - 215 pts.

Core - 10 Crossbowmen - 100 pts.
Core - 10 Crossbowmen - 100 pts.
Core - 20 Corsairs, Cmd, Sea Serpent Standard, Pair of Handbows - 253 pts.

Special - 5 Cold One Knights, Cmd, Pearl of Infinite Bleakness - 200 pts.
Special - 14 Black Guard, Cmd, Standard of Hag Graef - 252 pts.

Rare - Reaper Bolt Thrower - 100 pts.

2000 pts. - 9 PD, 7 DD

It's compact, with a significant range element, but the money's in the impact of the three fighty units bolstered by the cauldron. All three are immune to psychology, and the guard are stubborn. Malekith travels with them, benefiting from striking first, and getting the benefits of the blessings of Khaine on the unit.

Let me know what you think.

Malekith is massvily overcosted. I would never take him when a level 4 will do almost as well in the support role, and cost half. Use those extra points to buy the more flexible things in the list like Harpies and dark riders.
