Chaos Space Marines @ 1250 - Formation Fun!!!

Budget was looking healthy this week so I did a bad thing and treated myself to enough new models to build a Khorne Daemonkin Gorepack - a box of Space Marine Bikes, one of Chaos Bikes and a box of WHFB WoC Warhounds to substitute as Flesh Hounds.  Courier package already on its way courtesy of Mighty Ape so should get them in time to build them (possibly paint) and field them at next weeks Summer League where I am going to try something new.

Primary Detachment
Chaos Space Marines - 610 points

Ahriman - Warlord
10 x Chaos Space Marines - Melta, Missile Launcher, Champion w. Power Sword & Combi Flamer
10 x Chaos Space Marines - Melta, Missile Launcher, Champion w. Power Sword & Combi Flamer
I know I could take Thousand Sons as Troops but I get more bodies with normal CSM.  Never used Psychic powers before so this could be a lot of fun. 

Formation Detachment
Khorne Daemonkin Gorepack - 388 points

3 x Chaos Bikes - 2 x Melta, Champion w. Power Sword
3 x Chaos Bikes - 2 x Melta, Champion w. Power Sword
10 x Flesh Hounds

Seriously cool formation this one.  All units get Ignores Cover or Terrain including the Bikes.  Fleshhounds get Hammer of Wrath and Bikes get Shred on their Hammer of Wrath attacks.  Combine that with Mark of Khorne and thats a fair bit of beat down.

Rules Question - Does the Gorepack still generate Blood Tithe Points?

Dataslate Formation 
HellCult - 251 pts

Hellbrute - Multi Melta, Power Fist with Heavy Flamer
14 x Cultists
15 x Cultists

I know that Hellbrutes are pretty sucky but I have one from the BoC set and want to use it as it looks cool.  This formation is actually quite cool though.  Hellbrute has Rage and gives Cultists Fearless until it dies when they get Zealot instead (which is largely the same thing to me).  Cultists also provide a walking 3+ Cover Save for the Hellbrute which keeps it alive longer.

Total Points - 1249

On another note going to have to apologise to my first opponent last week as I played the Boon turn into a Daemon Prince thing wrong.  Reading the rules my Lord loses all of his Weapons and Wargear and becomes a vanilla Daemon Prince with plain old Power Armour.  Would have still kept his Mark of Khorne though...

Three detachments in 1250 points, classic power-gaming John Murrie move
