I have been playing Necrons for about two years, and I have finally decided to start a second army, and I settled on Chaos Demons. I just placed an order for the codex, a box of khorne bloodletters, and a box of daemonettes. Since there do not appear to be any herald models, I was planning on converting a herald from each box, perhaps with the assistance of some Tyranid bits I have lying around. It sounds like I'm going to want to put these guys in chariots at some point, but that sounds like a whole big project. Are there any rules or guidelines for base-sizes or anything? Does anyone have any suggestions with regards to chariots?
Does anyone else have any tips for basic strategy or maybe which models I should buy next?
Well first off, welcome to the Daemons, I think you'll find eternal damnation is a bargain price to pay for such a good time
That looks like a good starting point and yes, you convert Heralds since there aren't any official models. Chariots aren't necessarily a must but they help. I'll be converting Slaaneshi chariots from Tomb Kings chariots (you get 3 in a box as opposed to just 1 for other kinds) and Khorne chariots will come from either Chaos or Orcs and Gobbos. For bases, simply use the chariot bases and you'll be fine.
The best way to learn Daemons is to get some practice in, use some Necrons as proxies and get some test games in. Getting the hang of Deep Striking is tricky at first, but testing everything out will give you a good idea of what works for you and what you should pick up next.

Yes, Daemons are incredably fun to play. They really do allow you to individulaze your army the way you want. Shooty or assault. So far in my games against a White Scars Marine Army my opponent has learned.
1. Scouts not in cover die very quicly to my squad of 5 horrors.
2. A unit of 10 tactical Marines against a squad of 10 Bloodletters can't even be close to called a fair fight. (espicially If the Bloodletters get the charge)
3. SHOOT THE FLAMERS!!!!!!!!!!!
4. The great big ugly great unclean one is one mean son of a gun he has yet to figure out how to bring down.
5. If you Deepstrike a Legion of the Damed Unit right next to a Soul Grinder, Be prepared for it to vomit on you, Harvest Cannon you, and charge you with impunity, and finish off your unit of 10, invulnerable, high priced, fearless warriors in 2 rounds. While you stare in disbelief and say " you mean I can't even hurt it in close combat?"
They offer so many options that your opponent MUST Deal with or else a Hurtings coming on next round, Often its just too much for him.

I've seen and had lots of success with suicide squads of flamers. They fire a template weapon that ignores cover AND armor saves. I use a squad of three (smallest you can do and allows you to fire all three on the turn they DS) and wiped out an entire immortal squad of about 11 strong. I also recommend khorne for your anti-MEQ needs.
