The idea behing this army is to be fast and hard hitting. I think it could do the job but need some opinions - what do you think?

8 is a lot of screamers, and not enough hounds, against a shooty army, your knights will be shot to bits, I'd at least double the number of hounds to screen your best units.

Other than that, I think your lack of static CR will be negated by your hard hitting and flanking units, so that shouldnt be a problem.

personally id lose the rune sword as there are far better ways that a chaos lord can spend 70pts

id just take a regular great weapon as it will give you the same strenght bonus for alot less points, and you won't strike last because of your helm of many eyes

Couple of things, the Runesword is staying, I have seen many people become very surprised at suddenly having to face a WS9 S6 lord with 6 Attacks when they were expecting something else. I will NOT switch the rune sword, and thats final :p

I switched for a great weapon and plumped for something more BANG in the army - an Exalted Champion in a Chariot. You were right about the banner,
