Just a few things that I observe

2 Icons is alot of points to tie up, ESPECIALLY at 1000pts. You really shouldn't need two, and if your going to take any, you should put it on the Crushers for wound allocation purposes.

If your taking any Pink Horrors, there is no reason to NOT take the Changling...ever

10 Plaguebearers is a bit much, 7 is really the most you should take per unit since (seeing as you don't have squishy troops to play meatshield for) their main purpose is to camp objectives.

For a DP you should pick Mark of Tzeentch or Iron Hide, but both is a bit of a waste. For a TzeentchPrince I would pick up bolt and/or gaze to make use of the DPs high BS

I agree with the above, 10 plaguebearers in 1000 points is a bit much, drop them to 7.

I always feel that a bloodthirster is too much at 1k points, but he's a beast and will do fine. I would do as suggested and Jettison 3 bearers and Icons from each sqaud of plague bearers and score another bloodcrusher for full wound allocation glory. I would also ditch ironhide as mentioned above on your prince, snag bolt, and put the changeling in your horrors squad. With the remaining points you could maybe get three flamers as a suicide drop squad to template some troops. I dont have my codex handy so I'm guessing at the points, but you should be able to grab around 170 points from dropping the above stuff. I'd even consider running 6 plague bearers per squad to get some flamers in my 1k list

6 plagues would also be fine instead of 7.
5 would be to low in 1k, you don't have much other units.
Flamers could do fine, they can dish out some damage

Not a fan of using MC'S worth that many points at this low level, only one I would consider would be a GUO. However, try it out and depending on your gaming area, it may or may not work for you.

Bloodcrusher x3
Total : 120

Considering the rest of your list 5 Fiends w/ Unholy Might for 150pts would serev you much, much better, but if you have the crushers (like I did in my army cause the models are cool), then go ahead and use them, and as mentioned add the icon to this squad for wound allocation purposes and to give you an icon.

Plaguebearers x10 : Icon
Total : 175

Drop the squad down to 7, drop the icon.

Plaguebearers x10 : Icon
Total : 175

Drop the second squad entirely and get something else. You'll never need two squads at 1000pts ever.

Pink Horror x5 : Bolt of Tzeentch
Total : 95

Fine unit, I prefer larger squads of these guys in order to get 30 ap4 torrents (for 10 of them), but some people swear by 5 w Bolt. I don't, In my army I have Bolts elsewhere as well, so you might be as well adding another squad of 5 w/ Bolt too.

Daemon Prince : Iron Hide, Mark of Tzeentch, Breath of Chaos
Total : 165

NEVER buy Iron Hide on Tzeentch Princes, they already get a 4++ buff, so 3+ is redundant. Never use breath without Wings to get you in close. In other words, Mark of Tzeentch, Daemonic Gaze, Bolt, 160pts, job done. Drop him down fire away and walk towards the enemy, or even hide in cover and fire away.

Total : 1000
Its not a bad list for a first go, but could just be fixed a bit.

Hope that helps.
