problem with that load out is that a) it's expensive, and b) it has to sit completely still if it wants to shoot. 2 Oblits are about the same price and are much more versatile, and in cover, a lot more survivable.

Go with the 2 oblits addition, forget the predator for now. With oblits also, you can change your weaponry to multimeltas if a tank gets to close (2d6 +8 12" and under).

Defilers with battle cannons are pretty good. I would have at least 1 probably.

Havocs always do well and outright demolish in lower point games.

I'm not crazy about the obliterators. Too slow. Too expensive. Even if you deepstrike them it's a crapshoot whether they accomplish anything at all.

Demon princes are okay. Just make sure they have wings or they're kind of a waste.

Mike at Acme plays a Chaos list with 2 winged demon princes and 2 defilers. He does this cheese combo where he uses the prince's psychic power to pack your squads together and then he drops the battle cannon template right in the middle. I saw it kill 13 Black Templars in one shot once.

That's playing chaos right there.

"I'm not crazy about the obliterators. Too slow. Too expensive. Even if you deepstrike them it's a crapshoot whether they accomplish anything at all."

Use obliterators as cover fire or establish a fire base with them, they are not ment to be fast. Not too expensive for multiple weapons from a single choice. Forget deepstriking them.

Obliterators are the way to go, I run 2 squads of three and they are devastating, can shoot and kill any target, can run if necessary, best fire support for chaos and now with plasma cannons being better what a value. As Dume said don't deep strike them keep them on the table shooting every turn.

I didn't realize they have every heavy weapon on them. That is pretty nifty. Still expensive, and deep striking them is not a very good idea.

You need more mobility, land raiders are good as they can act as a transport plus giving great protection and fire support, raptors can be a good choice but you need to be careful with them. I'm currently experimenting with some chaos bikers for that last turn turbo boost to contest objectives.
