The idea of the Slaaneshi 'playing with LD' -army really has caught my interest. I mean, it really has an original idea, not just 'shoot' or 'smash'.
I think I'm about to turn my Tzeentchian daemon army into a Terrorbomb, but I ran into 2 problems:
1) The list needs a lvl KoS, which costs like 600 points, plus the Flying BSB that's around 200-230 points, and the Masque. So, I'd be spending 900 points on a Lord and Hero. Plus, if shit happens, The KoS won't get Phantasmagoria neither Slicing Shards. Is it really worth it? I'd like to hear a good Lord and chero combo for this type of an army.
2) Now that we have about 1100 points left, how to use them? Flamers ofcourse, but I'm talking about the Core choices. I think I'll be using 3x 10 Horrors, or should I be spending the points on Daemonettes? They've never really caught my eye.
OK, Characters plus Core = 1260 points or so. What's next? Seekers? Moar horreurz or perhaps some Flamers? I'd like to include some Slaaneshi daemons too so I might take 2 units of Seekers, to cause fear on the enemies, and fast. The conversion would also be fun, I think (any ideas? ) And last, but not least, Flamers! Who doesn't love them except my friends? Fiends are also a viable option. 3 Fiends and 5 Flamers might suffice.
So, how would you take the best out of this idea? My main concern is everything but the Characters as I think Masque, BSB and KoS are enough (right?)
Ideas very very much appreciated, Thank You!
EDIT: I apologize for the huge amount of typos on the text, sorry

I should remind you that if s*** does happen, you will be getting the other four spells in the book, which are not bad at all. Hellshreik and the stupidity one both work very well with a LD lowering army. Also, getting ASF on a unit that doesn't have it--flamers, perhaps--could be very useful. Also, the KoS is great in combat, so if you don't roll well for spells, just concentrate on destroying things, which shouldn't be hard for him/her/it.
Filling out your core with horrors could work very well to draw out DD or to do some damage if they let it go through. It's really a win-win with them and a big caster. Just make sure you are very careful with the order you cast in.
Fiends are amazing units for killing skirmishers, fast cav, and warmachines, as well as flanking other units or attacking cav before they can get to you. And of course, flamers rape, so no need for an explanation there.
I assume the BSB would be using the LD banner? I also assume it's a Tzeentchian hero on a disc?
No, I don't have any wool.
The T/S Terror bomb is awesome For Core I field two units of 10 Horrors and 18 Deamonettes. I field one unit of kinky ladies because with M6 they can move around quite easily and a frontage of 5 is equal to 15 armor piercing attacks and we all know that 15 attacks on the flank are dangerous. In case of a runny enemy I pin them down with the seekers ( so much fun when your opponent declares a flee and you simply explain to him why he can't look at his face !! )
Playing WoC I am use to having to make the most out of small armies that can be potential point sinks. However Im doing Nurgle, so my Great Unclean one will be extremely hard to kill. Plus with Epidemius, That just adds to the grief. Sadly his 3+ regeneration upgrade is only on him.
As for advice, a herald or 2 would be ok. Giving a daemonette unit they join ASF. Slanneshi -ld abilities are great on units that aren't stubborn. If you face say alot of white lions, you are better off using the Phantasmagora (SP) spell. That is the best way to handle stubborn units i think. As far as i know, only the KoS out of those cause terror. Fear bombing is still good, especially on units that have that spell Phantasma-whatever spell cast on it.

If a Million Guardsmen die, that's a statistic. If one marine dies, that's a tragedy.
