Looks like a pretty solid list, but you may wish to consider a few slight alterations IMHO.

I would drop the power sword on the lord and just go with a basic chainsword which can be upgraded to the AL relic "Blade of the Hydra". You lose 1 AP but gain +1 strength, +d3 attacks and a flat 2 damage. You would save 4pts from the sword, and gain some extra damage and attacks that might trigger "Death to the False Emperor" if going against Imperium.

If the berserkers are going to infiltrate or run up the field, you might wish to just outfit them with chainaxes and chainswords as they are best suited in CC and the extra attack could prove more useful in the long run while also not potentially stalling a charge by removing close models with pistol fire.

The sorc in termy armor seems a bit out of place, as he has no real protection to speak of if deep-striking barring the invul save. If he's going to be sitting back w/ the havocs, you might want to just take him plain and save the points to use elsewhere.

Glad to hear you had a good result and apparently a good time, which is far more important IMO. Question tho: Did "A Tide of Traitors" strategem for the cultists come into play, or was it not really needed or applicable?

Congrats again!

Tide of traitors sucks lol well in the game i played it did the morale was about to kill off every cultist and i had to spend 2 cp just to keep them alive in order to spend another 2 for tide of traitors. 4 cp on cultists not a good investment wont repeat that mistake again.

If they could arrive from any edge then it would be worth it.
