3x 5 purifiers with 2 psycannons, 2 halberds,1 Nemesis Daemon Hammer, Razorback with psybolt ammo

More bodies on the field

I find that when building a purifier army, its best to leave out the pali's and bring in something more points effective. The purifiers are awesome on their own, and imo work best in squads of 10 with rhinos. Example:

Purifiers x10: MC DH, 4x Psycannons, 5x Halberds, Psybolt ammo, Rhino (360pts)

This provides maneuverability and tons of psycannon shots which we most certainly need for anti tank. Three of these squads can make up the bulk of your army with Crowe for 1,230 pts. You can also drop a purifier from one squad and add Crowe so he can fit in the rhino as well:

9x Purifiers, Crowe: MC DH, 4x Psycannons, 4x Halberds, Rhino (484 pts)

Two squads of 10 plus the Crowe squad will bring you to 1,204 pts. Adding two psyfleman dreads for 135 pts each will give you sufficient cover to make your moves. If you're set on the Dread Knight (they're awesome, I know) consider kitting out with tele, hammer, psycannon and incinerator for 285 pts.

All together you get:

HQ:
Crowe 150 pts

Troops:
10x Purifiers:MC DH, 4x Psycannons, 5x Halberds, Psybolt ammo, Rhino (360pts)
10x Purifiers:MC DH, 4x Psycannons, 5x Halberds, Psybolt ammo, Rhino (360pts)
9x Purifiers: MC DH, 4x Psycannons, 4x Halberds, Psybolt ammo, Rhino (334 pts)

Heavy:
Dreadnought: 2x TLAC, psybolt ammo (135 pts)
Dreadnought: 2x TLAC, psybolt ammo (135 pts)
-or-
Nemesis Dreadknight: Personal tele, DH, Heavy Psycannon, Heavy Incinerator (285 pst)

Both options drop you just short of 1500 pts and seem pretty versatile. This is also fantastic for boosting up to 2k. Hope this helps!

I like the suggestion on adding the 2xPsy Dreads as they are awesome.
Crowe can't be attached to a unit so the theory of putting him with the 9 purifiers is flawed. He isn't an independent character so can't join anyone.
If you were to put the dreadknight in the keep him as you have with the sword , personal teleporter and the heavy flamer or change the flamer for a gatling psylencer. In my opinion the hammer isn't worth it and the heavy psycannon scatters so not worth it, you have just as many chances of wounding with 12 shots.
What you could try is putting the purifiers by 8 instead of 10 and use the other points to add some more bodies, maybe even a GKIS.
