Hello all, this is my 1500 point list and my paint project for the coming months. Before I start this I just need to fine tune my list and spend the last few points. So there is where I might need your help and ideas!

Be'Lakor

Herald of Slaanesh
Psycher level 1
Lesser and Greater reward

Herald of Tzeentch
Psycher level 3
Exalted reward
Disc of Tzeentch

16 Deamonettes of Slaanesh
Instrument of Chaos
Allures with lesser reward

16 Horrors of Tzeentch

5 Screamers of Tzeentch

10 Seekers of Slaanesh
Icon of Chaos
Heartseeker with lesser reward

Burning Chariot of Tzeentch

Soul Grinder
Daemon of Slaanesh
Baleful torrent

I have 52 points to still spend. My plan is to put my daemonettes in reserves with the soul grinder and chariot and deep strike them. The seekers are going to run forward and use the icon to help them. The herald on disc usually pulls a grimoire and rides with the Screamers. The horrors roll on the daemonology table and summon stuff where needed, unless I roll cursed earth. With cursed earth they keep casting the power and walk forward for the extra big protection bubble. Be'Lakor mostly uses his invisibility where needed and flies around where needed.

I still need to buy the grinder and seekers and paint all to models, but this looks like the start of a fun project!

Hmm let's see. It's a all-around list I take it, so I will start by saying that it could be a bit more focused on each area in my opinion.

Be'Lakor
Always fun to have and invisibility is insane.

Herald of Slaanesh
Psycher level 1
Lesser and Greater reward
I would dump the rewards and buy a exaulted locus of beguilement instead. Combine it with the Daemonette squad and you got a herald that gives the entire squad re-rolls to hit, with 3 attacks on the charge. Keep her out of challenges and combat, and use her to buff your squad instead.

Herald of Tzeentch
Psycher level 3
Exalted reward
Disc of Tzeentch
Nothing to add, as long as you go with the screamers as a escort.

16 Deamonettes of Slaanesh
Instrument of Chaos
Allures with lesser reward
Dump the allures and her reward, and the instrument. Use the points to buff it up to a full 20-man squad in my opinion.

16 Horrors of Tzeentch
Use some of your excess points and make 2 x 11 squads instead of 1 x 16 man squad. You get more psyker masteries (4 in total) and more flexibility as both units can roll on the demonology table, so a higher chance of the good spells.

5 Screamers of Tzeentch
Nothing to add, as a escort and armorbane unit.

10 Seekers of Slaanesh
Icon of Chaos
Heartseeker with lesser reward
Again, dump the heartseeker and her reward. The unit doesn't need it to be devastating as a full on hardpressing unit.

Burning Chariot of Tzeentch
Have never used this myself, so I will leave it in for the fun of it.

Soul Grinder
Daemon of Slaanesh
Baleful torrent
Sure, why not - Barbecue!
With the changes above, I would suggest a list that is the following:

Be'Lakor

Herald of Tzeentch
- Mastery lvl 3
- Exaulted reward
- Disc of Tzeentch

Herald of Slaanesh
- Mastery lvl 1
- Exaulted Locus of Beguilement

20 x Daemonettes

11 x Pink Horrors

11 x Pink Horrors

5 x Screamers

10 x Seekers

Exaulted Chariot of Tzeentch

Soulgrinder

- Daemon of Slaanesh
- Baleful Torrent

Total: 1498 points

Keep the Herald of Slaanesh with the Daemonettes and keep her secure. She's not there to fight, she's there to do psyker stuff and make the unit even more deadly in close combat. Otherwise, do your worst with the units you have - It may be a bit more random in the deepstriking section than your list, but I think it's a bit more focused and it can bring a lot of pain to the enemy.

I hope it helps and look forward to seeing your progress. Do we get to see the paintjobs as well? :D

That is a lot to think about and some great advice there. I was struggling to get that 3rd troop choice in there.

Here goes my second attempt to get this right. As you can see a lot of copy paste from your list!

Be'Lakor

Invisibility is just that awesome and he can hit stuff when needed

Herald of Tzeentch
- Mastery lvl 3
- Exaulted reward
- Disc of Tzeentch

Grimoire carrier and can cast stuff

Herald of Slaanesh
- Mastery lvl 1
- Exaulted Locus of Beguilement
-Greater reward

Yeah I know rewards are expensive and might not be worth it, but I just like to roll on random tables. Good chance to get some extra protection if needed or a lash or either blade. She is usually my warlord.

18 x Daemonettes

Clean of all upgrades, invisibility is going to help them a lot

11 x Pink Horrors

11 x Pink Horrors


Two squads is a better chance to get cursed earth!

5 x Screamers

Taxi duty and killing vehicles when needed

10 x Seekers
- Icon of Chaos

Same as before, but cheaper

Burning Chariot of Tzeentch

I got to use the chariot twice now and it's great at deep striking to kill infantry like warp spiders and stern guard. After that it is a threat your opponent can't ignore.

Soulgrinder
- Daemon of Slaanesh
- Baleful Torrent

Yes fast and I love barbecues. Him and the Exalted flamer are great at it!

Total: 1500 points

It's a few boxes to buy more then my last list, but it's not something I mind doing. I'll post some pictures when I get some painting done! Again thanks for the advice Nordicus

Hehe trust me I know the feeling :good:. Just make sure, that if she accepts a challenge, that it is one you will win. If you loose, the entire squad gets a big hit not just her. With this setup her biggest strength is the sheer killing power she gives her unit, not necessarily her alone.

Again thanks for the advice Nordicus
Anytime man - If you need anything else, just give me a tag and I'll gladly help out. Looking forward to seeing the army painted and in progress :good:
