I'm no expert, but from my experience I would suggest the following:

Take a changeling in one of those horrors squads for 5 points, his special power is awesome. I'd also consolidate those letters into a bigger squad, The last couple games I played with squad of 8 (against nids) and they did pretty well.

I have also played a solo grinder in the last game, and as others had warned.. it was a fire magnet. It could be alright depending on how your DS goes

I would also take BotBG on the Thirster just for posterity. 5 points for saves against force weapons is insurance I'll buy any day

fine, but blessing of the blood god is a must have with the rise of psychic powers and the release of the new GK dex.

3 Bloodcrushers of Khorne (Elites) 150pts
Icon, instrument

fine

5 Plaguebearers of Nurgle (Troops) 75pts

always useful

5 Bloodletters of Khorne (Troops) 80pts

5 is just too small for bloodletters, combine them into 1 unit and they should work ok

10 Pink Horrors of Tzeentch (Troops) 195pts

I normally use 5 with bolt but if you want the anti-infantry firepower then these units certainly have it. Surely its worth throwing in the changeling. He's so cheap you might as well, and his ability is pretty awesome.

1 Daemon Prince of Chaos (Heavy Support) 160pts
Bolt of Tzeench
Daemonic Gaze

1 Daemon Prince of Chaos (Heavy Support) 160pts
Bolt of Tzeench
Daemonic Gaze
Most people leave off the gaze, but this is a decent build

Soulgrinder 160pts
Phlegm
I'm not a fan of having 1 vehicle in a list, but at least you have enough MCs to help split enemy anti-tank fire. Still, any metlas are going to be gunning for this guy. Personally I would just grab another prince (or use more grinders).
1750 pts

What do the experts say? I have no idea actually
Its a strong list, little weak against tanks but then it is daemons so that kinda goes with the territory. The first thing I would point out is that in a 1750 list you have thrown away 100 points right at the start in icons. Thats a huge sacrifice. Personally I would take 1-2 icons as a maximum, but normally dont take any: my thinking is that those 100pts of icons is protecting half the army as it DSs... probably about 750pts by the time you load wave 1 (which most people do). Do you want 650pts in that second wave that can DS safely, or 750pts that take a little risk ...

I would make a few changes:
-combine the bloodletters
-split the horrors into 3 units and give them all bolt (and the changeling to one), remove their icons.
-switch the grinder to a DP (or both DPs to grinders).

Of these I think changing the bloodletters is the only needed change, the rest is just on personal experience and preference.

I would have to agree with combining the bloodletters into one unit or doing the two units of eight. It also really wouldn't hurt to take a changeling. I personally think Soul Grinders are awesome. They can take down tanks and also can distract the opponent. People see something big and scary and automatically want to get rid of it even if it turns out to be the least of their worries. That is at least my experience. Other than that I'd say it appears to be a strong list. GOOD LUCK!
