A local player is working to max out his Astra Militarum Lasgun only army since it can destroy everything.

Yes, and THB, it doesnt make sense as how is a exploded transport "unit destroyed within 6" different to say a vehicle wrecked, or, an infantry unit destroyed within 6".
But RAW, thats the FAQ, thats what sticks isnt it. Lets hope they dont explode your transports.
So I'm working on a list and would appreciate any advice and Feedback that you guys are willing to give. Remember that I have not participated in a single battle of Warhammer or 40k yet. So I am still not 100% sure of the rules or anything else. I am still early in the learning phase, but feel I need to nail down a list so that I can get them built and painted to start playing. So here it is....
Khorne Daemonkin Blood Host Detachment: (1849)
Lord of Slaughter-(275)
Bloodthirster of Insensate Rage
Chaos Lord/Juggernaut,Blood-forged Armor, Kor'lath Axe of Ruin, Sigil of Corruption
1 unit of Berzerkers/Chainaxe(x5) in Chaos Rhino
1 unit of Chaos Space Marines
1 unit of Possessed
2 units of Chaos Spawn
2 units of Chaos Cultists
2 units of Bloodletters
1 unit of Fleshhounds
1 unit of Bloodcrushers
1 unit of Skull Cannon
2 units of Chaos Bikers/2 Meltaguns each = 192
1 unit of Fleshhounds = 80
My thought process with this is to have the minimum sized units so as to possibly generate more Blood Tithe points as the units drop. As I stated in the initial post I want to focus on the Assault phase. So my Slaughtercult focuses on that. My hounds and Bloodcrushers combined with the 'zerkers in the Rhino give me a bit of speed to get in there. The Skull Cannon with its 36" range could go towards the middle of the battlefield and give ranged support where needed. I am thinking of using the Bikers as mobile ranged support/objective grabbers, that's why I took the Meltas... since they don't appear to be strong in the assault they can scoot around the battlefield doing what they need to do/be a distraction by plinking away at vehicles.
I could be totally wrong and really off base here. And if so, I would appreciate someone telling me so. But I hope not. I hope at least part of what I am thinking here is feasible.
Thanks in advance for any and all advice.
Depending on what they're equipped with, 2 - 3, with plenty extra troops as backup.
