Good start. Anouther Knight, a magic banner. Prehaps give your knights banner of rage and anouther mark. It's like giving them 2 marks effectivly. And hounds are'nt worth it in 8th ed. Take Some more marauders instead, so you can take some wounds and still ahve the hored rukle when you get there

drop the sheild off your hero, armor is capped at 1+ now, and with chaos armor and juggernaut thats 1+ right there.

I would drop both marauder calvary and pick up 12x khorne warriors with shields and halberds.

I say drop one unit of hounds for sure, the other unit may be worth the -1 modifier to shooting at your knights. I agree with getting rid of the Marauder Calv, and definitely the shield.

After all that, you will have enough points for a Sorc Lord (although all you could give it in a 1000 pt game is MoS or Spell familiar) which would be very helpful. I'd go with MoS and you can cast Ecstatic seizures on a 9+ (3 dice) and watch a horde get demolished.

Only problem is that this makes your army very small and a miscast could wipe out a lot of Marauders, but I feel you need some magic defense.

It's a khorne army, it's magic defence is running at people half naked shouting 'BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!'

Shields and halberds is a no go. According to my local GW, if you have a halberd, you use it rather than a shield. No shield bonus to armour in any situation.

I thought that the shield will still work against shooting, it was just in cc that you have to use your weapon upgrade. Now if 1pt/model for a +1 to your AS only against shooting is worth it is a whole different debate.
