Title: Greater Daemonless 2500pts

What's up Legion!
Its been a long while since I last posted. Got caught up in the new Vamp book for a while. I had been in the Blood in the Badlands campaign for a while but I missed a couple turns and now I'm just a vassal. Which I don't really mind. It was getting a little boring with my dwarves sitting back and pounding my opponents into submission while my great weapon hordes mopped up. So without further ado....
HoSl - Torment Blade
HoK - Jugger, Armor of Khorne, Firestorm Blade
HoK BSB - Great Standard of Sundering
HoTz - Master of Sorcery, Spellbreaker
35 Bloodletters - fc
35 Daemonettes - fc
5 Flesh Hounds
7 Bloodcrushers - fc, Icon of Endless War
1 Fiend of Slaanesh
I didn't have enough Hero points left to take another HoK for 2 Bletter Hordes, plus I wanted a little more diversity. My lore choices can also help the str3 Nettes. Debating on Beasts, Light, and Shadow.
I also know that Flesh Hounds and Crushers may not be optimal, but I really didn't want a 3rd Horde as that is getting a little ungainly on the battlefield.
I'm sure I'll miss my Flamers but the extra unit of Furies should help with the redirecting/chaff battles.
Let me know whatcha think!

Well, you got a nice list, but almost no ranged damage. Will give you a hard time against some lists, I think. For example, mounted L4 (dark elves, warriors of chaos), MSU shooting lists,...
So I always try to include some flamers. Of course, this is personal preference :) .
I'd take lore of light, because it's awesome, and it gives you acces to magical missiles, in case of... . But then your daemonettes will be left at str 3 then...
HoS needs that siren song, it's part of what makes slaanesh so good+give the daemonettes the 'no charge reaction banner'. Evil combo, messes the enemyes line up big time.
The block of 8 crushers awakens my curiosity. Can't say much about that, only: tell us how they did :)
You're good in the chaff department, so your blocks should be able to hit their target.

Thanks for the feedback!
My area doesn't have any DE players. Its mostly Undead, Lizardmen, Ogres, Bretts, CD.
My Hero pts % is at 625 already. I don't want to sacrifice the Sundering Banner to get the Siren Song. The -2 to cast puts everyones lvl4 on equal terms with my one lvl2. I'm also trying to get used to not using Siren Song, figuring it will be gone from the new book we eventually get.
I've always wanted to use a big Crusher block w/ Herald in it. The models are just fantastic, and the riders actually have more than one attack, so there will be 8 supporting attacks.
I forgot about the Sundering Banners effects on Lore of Light, so I guess it will be LoShadow or Beasts. Mindrazored or Wildformed Daemonettes are brutal either way.

ah you caught the banner of sundering problem... and yes its of great help if your not taking a greater daemon spellcaster... the problem is that it pretty much voids the lore with the best synergy to khorne... and without a greater daemon beast's tend to suffer
I personally, would pick life... simply for regrowth... getting back a couple 12 point models is no big deal... but getting back a couple 70 point models? thats a different story
and as to your crushers, the back rank only gets one attack... so 4 attacks maximum from supporting ranks.. not worth it in my opinion... running your paying 280 points for 4 attacks... it would probably be worth dropping the back rank... you will be trampling most things anyway, causing a possible 22 wounds with reroll
the only problem is without a greater daemon, to take away the pressure from them, you opponent will likely want to get rid of that unit as soon as possible.
may i ask why you've chosen to exclude a greater daemon?

I would switch the Armour of Khorne from the Jugger to the BSB. Jugger gets 4+ AS without it. BSB could really use the Armour IMO. Also, with the Banner of Sundering, you could be wasting points if your opponents choose the same lore that you do. I usually only take it when using a Khorne mono army or when my only casters are Nurgle.
