Screamer Council Dillema's - Part 1: Introduction

Hi guys,

Half a year later, and I'm here again to not only give a small update as to where I'm at now in the world of wargaming, but also because I'd like to talk about some things that... Well, I don't know any other places where I could talk about them.

Allow me to explain: ever since mr. Dave Simcox from my favourite podcast 40kUK (40kGlobal now) started talking about the dreaded list called Screamer Council, I was hooked.

The reason for that being that I feel that mr. Simcox and I have a very similar playing style. It sounds really cocky, I know, to say you have a similar style to a top UK tournament player, but I think I'm pretty safe when I compare myself to a cowardly, reserve-the-lot player like Dave.
My previous tournament lists were also very similar to his, so yeah, I had to check this one out.

Herald of Tzeentch, Grimoire of True Names, Disc of Tzeentch, Mastery Level 3
Herald of Tzeentch, Portaglyph, Disc of Tzeentch, Mastery Level 3
Herald of Tzeentch, Greater Locus of Conjuration, Disc of Tzeentch, Mastery Level 3
Herald of Tzeentch, Disc of Tzeentch, Mastery Level 3
2x 10 Pink Horrors
Company Command Squad with Flamers
Veterans with Flamers
2x Vendetta's with HBolters (squadron)

And oh my god, it's awesome. For everyone not familiar with the Screamer Council, here's a great link: http://sanguinesons.blogspot.fr/2013/07/etc-lists-tzeentch-screamer-councils-be.html
However, because I don't want you all to lose interest by visiting a more awesome blog than mine, here's a small recap of that article + the list I'm currently playing and it's problems :

List Building - Help on Forums! Competitive IG List without spam... Or at least, not a lot

Hi guys,

If there's something about 40k I really like, it's list building. And because of that, I always like reading people's like, criteria for their list...
It's a like a sudoku or a puzzle to me, e.g. "make a competitive/fluffy/.. list with the following: Blood Angels, Death Company who have to be able to get into assault, fluffy."

It's a really cool way of directly helping people,  and it keeps me mind bussy!
So, normally, if this were a popular blog like 3++ or Fritz or Nick's blog, they'd ask people to send in there questions and ideas... But since I'm far away from that level, I post things on forums.

So, one of those ideas recently came from 'Tankage' on The Warmaster forum (http://thewarmaster.com/index.php)  run by Fritz (Way of Saim-Hann... Really? Oh c'mon go check check him out if you haven't already: http://www.fritz40k.com/).

Tankage's post went as follows:
Hi all, 
I have just got back into 40K after a very long absence and I am looking to put a guard list together. I preffer fluffy lists but dont want to lose every game, so here are the criteria: 
No non fluff spam - i.e. flyers (one or two maybe but not 9!), plasma (would be quite rare) etc
I like grenade launchers, sniper rifles etc as these seem more appropriate/likely.
Minimal vet units 
Must have CCS
I would also like a variety of specials to make it unpredictable/fun 
My modelling skills are currently very very rusty so basic kits rather than custom
Am i being unrealistic? Would appreciate guidance/recommendations on list/tactics?
So: IG, competitive, grenade launchers and snipers, no plasma, minimal vet units, minimal spam and unpredictable surprise units! Before I get on to my reply: there were some mentions about Penal Legion & Leman Russes being very good, so that's why I mention them as well.
Also, it wasn't exactly clear whether he ment CCS as in Company Command Squad or as in Close Combat Specialists. Anyhow, I stuck in both!

Here's what I came up with:
