Here is my 1500 army for chaos daemons - i hope i covered all fields and my opp. will be mostly space marines, tau and necrons...
Bloodthirster w/unholy might
1 herald tzeentch w/ we are legions, mos,bolt
10 plaguebearers w/ icon
10 bloodletters w/icon
5 horrors w/bolt X 3 (one with changeling)
5 seekers X 2
3 fiends w/ unholy might
3 flamers x 2
I try to have mostly fast attackers and my troop i try to have bloodletters to take care of pesky high T guys and marine armor while plaguebearers for the anvil. I have min horror squads to get the bolt in case I face monoliths and tons of vehicles. suggestions?
Looks nice and speedy, but it lacks in staying power. That BT won't last long being the only MC on the board, he'll need some Grinders or DPs to take the heat off, they too can be pretty speedy so it fits the army.
Seekers and Fiends are plenty fast, but you'll need something to carve up baddies after they've tied them down. Bloodletters are perfect for this, I'd take more.
You could probably leave the PBs at home this time. If you're going speedy, you can deploy farther back and with run you can correct most DS mishaps. The fast stuff holds the enemy in place while the real killy stuff comes in to finish the job.
Horrors dish out plenty of firepower and can be used to screen friendlies since they already have a 4+ inv.
Find a way to incorporate some more hitty units and/or more big baddies to run with the BT and you should have a much easier time.

ic. The reason i put plaguebearer in is to hold position and to draw enemy fire. I could take them out for more bloodletters though. I can probably drop the herald and couple of horrors for a DP. Hopefully the army can stand up to shooty min/max marines...
How about replacing the plague bearers with Daemonettes?
With fleet, they can get to the enemy earlier and ya can summon from there.
I would merge 2 of your horror units to make it 10 strong. You need somewhere for the herald to hide and a 5 man unit could easily be blown away taking the herald with it. 7 wounds with T3 and a 4+ (atmittedly invulnerable) save isn't enough. alternatively drop a few seekers to boost one horror unit's numbers.
The rest looks good

yeah you are right. I am just worried they get shot up when they land and i scatter horribly. 2-3 squads of marines can make short work out of them.
