I posted my two first attempts at a 1000-point army list in the army list subsection, but neither of the two lists is to my liking. Originally, I intended a reliable Khorne/Tzeentch mix, which I would know how to build and play, but instead tried to do something uncommon, attempting Khorne/Slaanesh, which I rather liked, but felt was perhaps a bit of a glass canon at low points games, and recently, Khorne/Nurgle.
Currently, I have:
-10 Flesh Hounds
and I can't for the sake of Khorne pull off something that is usable at 1K points. Heralds eat up enormous amounts of points, and Nurgle needs them to be effective. So basically, my first attempt was to take both Khorne and Nurgle heralds, however, this has left me with only two core units (bigger Khorne and smaller Nurgle) and two Flesh Houns, and the army is somewhat unclear on its direction.
The second attempt has seen more core units, albeit very small, and with no Nurgle herald, which kind of makes the 2x10 Plaguebearers pointless.
I find this very strange - with Dark Elves, army compositions have been coming up on my mind almost instantly, yet with Daemons, I am having a difficult time. If you can please take the time to help me with a solid Khorne/Nurgle "in your face" army, I would very much appreciate it. And if you keep an eye on low cost (while still playing the Daemons models), it will be great. Thanks!

How about this?
Herald of Nurgle-level 1, palanquin, noxious vapors, slime trail
Herald of Khorne-juggernaut, armor of khorne
Plaguebearers-18, full command
You have a super anvil of Plaguebearers and the Herald with Bloodletters and Hounds on the flanks. The HoK is optional, you can always swap it out for a BoN and Furies.

Looks rather good, though I'm a bit concerned about the low unit count. The opponent will be able to dance around the Plaguebearers, and Bloodletters are not a unit that can withstand shooting or a good charge.
With Beast of Nurgle and Furies, things might get a bit more interesting - I could let the Hounds loose on archers or annoying fast cav when it comes to range, while the furies will fly around doing all sorts of mischief. And the beast... I think I'm beginning to like this, a lot! Thanks, mate.
