I'm not completely up to speed with all the rules, but would the bonus from Rending help Slaanesh Daemon princes penetrate the knight. Maybe even a full squad of slaanesh heralds on steeds with greater etherblades?

The thing people seem to miss is that while 1 Knight is fairly easy for a prepared opponent to take down, 3 or more Knights is a different story. Remember, Knight players consider the Apocalyptic Explosion marker upon death to be a feature, not a weakness. Also, a Knight detachment screened by allied Grey Knight PA units will have a huge Warp Quake bubble around them, deterring Deep Strike Alpha attacks.

I'd suggest flying units. Preferably allied Heldrakes, as it is weak against air.

Unfortunately, this doesn't mean they won't have a dedicated AA unit unless the person is opting to be a bigger dick by having 3 Knights.

The Heldrake won't do much to take down a Knight. It requires 6's to pen it if using Meteoric Descent.

Have you considered distracting your opponent with cat videos and then 'accidentally' knocking it off the table?
