The usual power builds have Gorebeast chariots, a couple of blocks of warriors, skullcrushers and some chaff. Your DP can hold whole units up on his own, especially with Daemonic Flight to get him in the right place and some protection in the form of Scaled Skin, Soul Feeder, Charmed Shield and the Dragonbane Gem. The rest of your army should be based around taking out whatever your DP isn't going to bother with. Warhounds are useful redirectors and giving them vanguard can help you threaten war machines early on, as long as you pick your fights Warriors are going to be very hard to beat in combat. Nurgle Gorebeast chariots are really useful for holding up powerful units but I prefer Khorne myself to deal out more damage on the charge. Throgg in a unit of trolls can also be very effective for taking on heavy cavalry (just throw up on them!), or infantry units if you have equipped them with additional hand weapons. Pick a target for your Hellcannon and just keep trying to hit it until they are gone, big blocks of low Ld troops are perfect targets but I tend to target high toughness units like Steam Tanks, etc that even my DP may struggle to wound.

Here is my tournament list, you can drop the Ogres for the Hellcannon and Daemonic Flight on the DP (I think you are still within limits on Rare choices, but not got the calculator out)

You might want to remove the individual points costs - it's against forum rules.

On the other hand, nice list!

Ack! Thanks for the heads up, tournament rules require the breakdown and I just cut and pasted the list. Now edited.

Harder lists usually have chariots as core nurgle/khorne and the lvl2 and BSB mounted on demonic steeds, flexible movement lets you get them where you really need them. Double chimera is always nice if you have the points.
Chaff is down to two choices maurader horsemen with the MoS or dogs.
