Default First try at Daemons

I've always loved daemons and finally got around to putting together a 2000 point list. Feel free to tear it up.

HQ: Keeper of Secrets: Transfixing Gaze, Pavane of Slaanesh 235
Skulltaker: Juggernaut 175

Elite: Bloodcrusher x3 120
Flamers of Tzeentch x3 105
Fiends of Slaanesh x6 180

Troops:10 pink horrors w/bolt of tzeentch 180
10 pink horrors w/bolt of tzeentch 180

10 nurgle plaguebearers w/icon 175
10 nurgle plaguebearers w/icon 175

Heavy Support:
Soul Grinder: Phlegm 160
Soul Grinder: Phlegm 160
Nurgle Daemon Prince: Iron Hide, Cloud of flies and Noxious Touch 155

I figure each wave would be equally smashy. One squad of horrors to shoot, one squad of plaguebearers for the icon, bloodcrusher or fiends, one monsterous creature and a soul grinder. The flamers could be plugged in somewhere. For options I'm still deciding whether or not I want screamers in place of a squad of plaguebearers or if daemonettes would do the trick. I figure shooting will keep my guys alive until the beasts get into HtH. Let me know what you think.

I'd drop the fiends for 3 more flamers in the unit and demonic gaze on the demon prince, keep the daemonettes at home having the plaguebearers who can actually absorb some shots can be a huge difference.

I would say very good army, definatly dont replace the fiends as they are disgusting when they get incombat which is very quickly!!! Maybe drop a unit of plaguebearers for bloodletters as horrors also make quite good icon bearers!

Oh and get a changeling in a pink horror unit!!!!! Its the main reason for having a horror unit and at 5 points you cant afford to not have it.

Also dont bother with pavane of slaanesh on the keeper of secrets as it means he cant fleet of foot when it is used. Give him the Hit and run ability soporic musk or somthing like that.

Good point on the changeling, I completely forgot what kind of super deal it is. I'll keep the fiends since I like flinging gobs of dice around the table. I'll fiddle around with the list and get an update here in a little bit. Thanks for the input so far!
