Actually its fine! (If you let Chaos have Titan Battle Groups, which a fair
number of gaming circles seem to do...)

The Lord of Battles is a Greater Daemon, thus there are three greater
daemons, with 5 units of Bloodletters each. WD (or maybe Cit Journal)
brought out the Blood Slaughterers Legion which is a legion of chaos space
marines which does not require a Primarch. This is where tthe three THawks
would slot in.

The fact is, he has at least two support slots free, and probably five more
free (from the Titan Battle Group).
