Need help Daemon List 1500

I have just got really into daemons with the completion of my EC and IW armies.
Right now I am fighting Tau, SM (Space wolfs and Codex), Nids and Eldar.

This is alist using all the models I have but for Skulltaker and Masque.

Herald of Khorne, Iron hide-85
Hearld of Tzeentch, We are Legion, master of Sorcery, Bolt of Tzeentch- 95


Troops
10x Bloodletters, Icon -185
10x Bloodletters, Icon- 185
10x Daemonettes-140
10x Daemonettes- 140
10x Horrors-170
10x Horrors, Changeling-175

Heavy support
Daemon Prince, Iron Hide-110
Daemon Prince, Iron Hide-110
Daemon Prince, Iron Hide-110

1505


I would love to put a soulgrinder in but they cost quite a bit of points and money the same with Plaguebearers, they are a great unit but they cost so much. I would not have so many horrors either if I was not lucky and found a bunch of old Horror models at a car bootsale.
So any tips or models you think I should get ? I have a bid on a cheap bloodthrister and Lord of change so fingers crossed I get them.

the first thing you notice in a game with daemons is how easy all of the basic troops die besides nurgle. horrors have a 4+ sv which is nice but daemonettes and letters have 5+ svs and cost more than 11 pts, very sad indeed. maybe run some nurgle units.

Yep I have played a few games on vassal using Plaguebearers and they are a great unit, my only problem is I really dislike Nurgle units, I found the models ugly ( not in a good nurgle way) and really hard to paint. Also they cost alot. I guess with christmas coming up I could ask for 2 packs of plaguebearers. So should I get rid of a unit of bloodletters or daemonettes to make room for the plaguebearers.
I was also hoping most firepower would be on the Daemon Princes and not the lesser daemons.

i think you have too many troops, in a 1500 point game i think 4 troop choices would do, i would drop a bloodletters and daemonettes squad, then use the points to get some crushers and flamers, then put the herald on a juggernaught and join up with the crushers. any remaining points could be used to buy some upgrades for the princes or another herald

Daemons
W:9 D:0 L:0

Chaos Marines
W:21 D:2 L:3

If you want peace.....prepare for war!

Id take the icons off the Letters and stick them on the Horrors, they wanna be coming down first anyway and have a 4+ inv so are more survivable. Id also make the princes nurgle, my cheap prince setup is:

Nurgle, Noxious touch, Cloud of flies - 125pts

Works very well, id also try and get a grinder and Plaguebearers, theyre awesome units, and wots wrong with the plaguebearer model? U gotta love a one eyed diseased corpse

Ok I will update this list in a bit. I just picked up 20 plaguebearers on ebay for £8 so they should add some staying power. Also got a BloodThirster cheap, so do you think I should remove some of the heralds and add a BT.
Also got a Defiler that has been made into a Knight Titan its about as high as 2 1/2 dreads do you think my opponents would let me use it as a DP. It is mutated to look like a DP but it is alot larger and has a larger base.

Yep, nothing says im gonna massacre ure army like a bloodthirster

Maybe drop a prince + some other stuff for him maybe the HOK. Id let u use the defiler/titan. Sounds like an awesome model and i know a guy who used to use a converted defiler for a prince. The only thing to ber in mind is with that big base make sure u dont end up scatterring within an inch of the enemy.

Another thought is u could always ude it as a soulgrinder if u wanna put one in, but that means making room for more pts.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, it is almost always a mistake to not take at least one soulgrinder.
I am not a fan of the daemonettes myself I would turn them into plaguebearers or horrors.
I would also probably turn the herald of korne into herald of tzeench.
