Default 1000 points First Chaos Daemon Army

So let me know if this will be decent:

HQ
Herald of Khorne 115 Points
  • Juggernaut
  • Fury of Khorne
Herald of Slaanesh 100 Points
  • Chariot of Slaanesh
  • Pavane of Slaanesh
  • Daemonic Gaze
Elites
3x Blood Crushers of Khorne 130 points
  • Fury of Khorne
Troops
10x Bloodletters of Khorne 160 Points

10x Daemonettes of Slaanesh 140 Points
5x Pink Horrors 100 Points
  • Bolt of Tzeentch
  • The Changeling
5x Pink Horrors 95 Points
  • Bolt of Tzeentch
Heavy Support
Daemon Prince 160 Points
  • Daemonic Gaze
  • Bolt of Tzeentch
  • Mark of Tzeentch
Total = 1000

I also have a Defiler I could possibly substitute for a Soul Grinder with Phlegm. Any thoughts on who should be in the first wave are welcome.

Other then the slaaneshi units its a good list.

Chariots of slaanesh are nice, but not for shooting- I give mine musk and unholy might and just throw them at enemy vehicles. With BS3 they just aren't worth upgrading with pavane and certainly not worth giving a 2nd shooting power they cant use each turn. I would change the use of this model or just cut it entirely- if you want a pavane use a DP.

Daemonettes are on of my favorite units, despite being about as hard to kill as a fluffy bunny. The problem with them in this list is that there simply arent enough of them- I use 3*10 in my slaaneshi army and that works most of the time, but they have to team up on enemies to really be nasty, especially when they start taking casualties.
I would switch this unit out and add more bloodletters- I dont like bloodletters all that much but they'll survive longer and fit into the army better (or even better- use another unit of crushers).

I dont like DPs in general... and I see no reason to change my stance now. Again I would use the points for other things: more heralds or more elites being the best options (I would add eitehr fiends or flamers... both are high impact units that can really smash an enemy army).

Flamers I would agree with. As much Breath of Chaos as you can muster. I'd probably use the Masque instead of the herald of Slaanesh. I don't know about Bolt of Tzeentch with the DP, just get him up close to a vehicle and he'll tear it apart. If you can find 5 points somewhere then the changeling in a unit of horrors is a must.

All the best
