Am I missing something fundamental?

Perhaps their line of thinking, if my latter belief is true, that by killing Angron and offering his soul to Slaanesh it may somehow fend it off a little longer. Of coarse, I lack any real knowledge of Xenos races in 40k.

Just wanted to point out, in the third Soul Drinker book, we see Dark Eldar actually working for Slaanesh in hopes in becoming a Deamon prince for her instead of her meal.
It backfires ofcourse, but he was a Slaanesh worshiper and Eldar
