Both look good, however i wouldnt give the soul grinders mark of slaanesh, giving them an extra 3" run distance for the amount of points it is isnt really worth it, I would say instead give them tzeentch for the re-roll 1s to save (could really help) or give them nurgle and sit them behind cover with their head popping out and enjoy a 2+ cover save

Slaanesh makes the weapons Rend as well So it has rending shots and Rending Phelgm (Over kill but funny) Right now i am leaning towards the first list a bit more just due the the fact it would do better against necrons i think.

yeah with the changes the 1st list is better for taking down necrons if thats what you are after. My main army is necrons and I have a problem with taking out big monsters, I laugh at vehicles and infantry but monsters rape me, only my characters can take them using mindshackle scarabs but if you charge 2 or more daemon princes into my warlord he is screwed

I'm not too much of a fan of the daemon prince though I think the soul grinder is better in every way, although a little dissapointed it didnt get It will not die USR like the defiler.
And yeah I forgot that rending is also for its ranged weapons, I keep thinking rending is only for melee thats not too bad then.

I prefer the first list, however I think it should have the Soul Grinder in it. I just don't like armies without Ranged AT and the FLAKK might come in handy.

yeah that list looks pretty solid, you have some nice shooting and cc mix, you have 3 monsters and a decent vehicle too. also i would recommend deepstriking the horrors, it means when they come on they will be in range for an easy 4d6 heavy bolter, rather than risking 5 of them getting killed and losing a warp charge.

I don't think the flamers will be worth it unless you can get them close and your opponent is bunched up. There is a good chance you'll make your opponent more resilient with feel no pain. I think the fiends will be a better choice.

Maybe add a Herald of Tzeentch with the exalted Conjuration to the horrors for 6d6 str 6 shots. Deepstriking would be better, but 20 models is a large footprint to risk.

not too risky if you use the icons, and yeah i think a lvl 2 herald might be better than the changeling, I dont actually think he is really all that great, sure he copies an enemies stats, but he doesnt replace them and he still only has a 5++ save so I would drop the flamers and the changeling and add a herald with conjuration and lvl 2 and then with any left over points take some more fiends
