Default 2k Daemon Epidemius 8th edition list

Hey all, I used to post here in the past, but I stopped for awhile. Made a new account and thought I'd run a list idea by you guys. Hopefully I get some responses, but this Chaos Demon forum section seems a bit dead...

Facing nids, but I don't want to tailor against them, so I made a list that I thought seemed fun but strong and relied a lot on synergy.

BATTALION DETACHMENT:
HQ -
Epidemius
Nurgle Herald - Virulent Blessing

Troops-
30 Plaguebearers
29 Plaguebearers
3 Nurglings

Fast Attack-
Plague Drones x6
Plague Drones x6

SUPREME COMMAND DETACHMENT
Great Unclean One - Steam of Corruption and Fleshy Abundance
Great Unclean One - Steam of Corruption and Fleshy Abundance
Daemon Prince with a pair of claws - Steam of Corruption
Daemon Prince with a pair of claws - Steam of Corruption

So I used to have the great unclean ones replaced with nurgle soulgrinders, but I'm just not impressed with soulgrinders in this edition, and they seem way too expensive for what they do. Kind of ok shooting and only slightly better in Melee (which nerfs the shooting more) makes them way overcosted. The extra points for the slightly weaker GUOs, however makes the leadership bubble and psychic powers way better in the long run, plus they can heal themselves with Fleshy Abundance.

Epidemius buffs the whole army, the Herald buffs both squads of Plaguebearers/GUOs by them, and the plague drones fly around killing stuff per usual/summon in the GUOs if I choose to keep them in reserves. The princes just generally run around killing stuff with their claws and steam of corruption and hide behind the plaguebearers if I need to.

Thoughts?
