Default Khorne Daemonkin VS Tau 1,000 pts.

This is my second list/match with using the newest Khorne Daemonkin Codex.

The only daemons I have are the 3 bloodcrushers, 10 blood letters,1 Harold, Blood Throne/Skull Cannon, and about 4 Princes and Be'lakor.

So I've created a list using as much daemons as I have to get use to the new codex.


-HQ-
Blood Throne (190)
-Exalted Locus of Wrath
-The Blade of Endless Bloodshed


-TROOP-
Chaos Cultists x9 (71)
-Heavy Stubber
-Autogun x7

Chaos Cultists x10 (77)
-Shotgun
-Flamer

Bloodletters x10 (100)


-ELITE-
Bloodcrushers x3 (135)


-FAST-
Chaos Spawn x2 (64)

Raptors x5 (110)
-Flamer

Raptors x5 (110)
-Flamer


-HEAVY-
Maulerfiend (140)
-Lasher Tendrills x2

Total Points= 997/1000

My strategy at the top of my head is have the Throne in the middle, Spawn in front, blood crushers in front of spawn or on sides of Throne, and Raptors in front of the Entire cluster, followed by the maulerfiend, so it'll be a big wave that'll be charging towards you, and hopefully my opponent won't kill them all and wound some here and there, then the units just branch off into his deployment and assault anything that breathes. The bloodletters will maybe deepstrike in front of my opponent to distract a few units for the main assault. The 2 spawn might be funny, for the purpose of there only being 2 but that's all I have at the moment, I would like to get more. I chose the Blood Throne because I've already done the Daemon Prince in the Chaos codex several times, the Harold/Chaos Lord on Juggernaught might be a HQ i'll take in the future when I have more Bloodcrushers. I'm planning on getting 10 more bloodcrushers in a few weeks. I think they look cool. But I feel like the list is missing something, like a supporting unit or something to make the list stand out.

But tell me what you guys think of the list, keep in mind the lack of daemon I currently have, and I would like to stay away from using allies because it seems un-necessary in a 1000 pt. I'll create a list using Chaos Marines as allies and see if I can find that missing something.
Thanks for reading, and Happy Wargaming!

Or I could just get rid of the Raptor and Cult squad and throw in a ForgeFiend.

Thats what I would do, 5 man Raptors wont do to much, but they are small enough to give you blood points when they die

I still have a small squad of 5 Raptors with a flamer, I could deep strike them close and flame them and have them die for the blood point. Or would that be a too expensive of a unit for that? I could easily have a 8 man Cult squad die way fast for the blood point and have some extra points to beef up the other main units.

I feel like if you were to deep strike them in have meltas since hes Tau and he will most likely have a Tank or two to pop, or some pesky 2+ battle suits. also dont forget they can pay for interceptor and shoot you when you arrive, my friend is a Tau player and He does that all the time
