So, seeing if the blood god works with the plague god (since they both kill in a ugly way)!

Ok, so first off the bloodthirster deep strikes with the daemon princes and kills things ( hoping the princes but Epidemius special rule is put to good use!) Skulltaker goes with the blood letters releasing carnage. Epidemius goes with the 15 plaguebearers hoping to kill what they can! The rest of the bletters help where needed, and the rest of the PB sit on 'jectives

Not much of a point considering he already has a 3+ save. That's a lot of points for 1 extra attack. Chariot would be better, or just walk him.PBs aren't killy, he serves no purpose.Epidemius:XXXBlessing and Might. He's a priority target, don't expect him to last long unless you bring backup (another Thirster, Grinders).Bloodthirster:XXXToo big and slow to get anything done on their own. Need faster units (Fiends, Flesh Hounds, Furies, Seekers, chariots) to tie stuff down for them or crack open transports (bolt, Fiends, Flesh Hounds, Sherald).3 blood crushers:120

Don't bother with icons.No icon, split into 3 units of 5. They don't kill things, but they make for awesome objective grabbers.15 plaguebearers:250

Good, very vulnerable to melta though.Too slow on foot.Daemon prince:150
unholy mightYou only have 3 speedy units, the BT and Grinders. The Grinders shoud be fleeting around into combat, so phlegm conflicts with that role. Once they go down, everything else is slow and vulnerable. Not a good idea.
Daemon armies need to close quickly to cut down on the firepower coming their way and to knock out vehicles so they can't escape. Fiends are ideal for this role. They're cheap, hit hard, and move extremely quickly. No Daemon list should go without at least 1 unit, preferably 3. To a lesser extent, Flesh Hounds, Seekers, and Sheralds on chariots accomplish this too.
BTs and Grinders/Princes hit like a ton of bricks, but they are very suceptible to getting shot up. If you have so few crucial and obvious targets, a canny opponent will eliminate them first and leave your army at their mercy. If you're going to field big meanies, you had better load with enough to survive multiple rounds of shooting while maintaining effectiveness. Backups are necessary, so Fiends or something similar would play a big role. Don't throw BTs at powerful characters like Marneus and Lysander, they're Eternal Warriors and will laugh off a BT while smashing it into the dust. Tie them up with Fiends and let your murder machines stomp all over the rest of the army.

The flukiest.Actually, my PB managed to kill of 20 odd marines with this list. (it was probably a fluke but heh!).Right, and of those the BT poses the biggest threat since the other 3 aren't as fast. High priority target will get focused on and get dead. As your faster model, once he goes, you've got problems.Actually the grinders and the prince will be close by him.They can take a lot of punishment and do plenty of damage, they're just too slow. Needs more speed.Yes your right with this one. i was going to one man this squad and make them fight on their own but maybe I'll put a bletter squad near them.It doesn't help your first wave and costs way too much.Why do you say that?5, 5 and 5. PBs suck in assault, Epi doesn't fit here either.Might change to a 10 and a 5, the 5 grabbing 'jectives.A lot of your stuff is good, it just doesn't fit together as a cohesive army.he hay! first thing you think i did right.Still too slow, so he can effectively be ignored. Flight is so expensive you may as well get another BT.Thats why7 i gave him the iron hide, might drop a icon for flight.Right back at you.Well thats my comments back.
Actually ==me== i just played another quick game with my PB and they managed to wipe 'em out. Are you sure they suck in assualt? I also can't fit another BT.

A-yep. Tactical Marines aren't the best barometer of winning assault since they suck too, so failures beating failures doesn't indicate much. If they coul drag down TH/SS Termies or Dreads we'd have something to work with.
I'd agree with ==me==. Give that Daemon prince wings, and swap the bloodcrushers for some fiends. Put icons on your PB squads and put them in your first wave. They're tough enough to take it. Other than that, ==me== is much better than me so, you know who to trust :p
