Well, im running a Black Legion army right?
And i'm been looking for a group of demons to throw in. I want a type that isn't bad in CC, but doesn't cost a whole lot. I've been considering Bloodletters and Demonettes.
Any input would be swell
Daemonettes. I've seen far too many Khorne armies. Probably because of the squad of Berserkers in the battleforce.
And over there we have the labyrinth guards.
One always lies, one always tells the truth, and one stabs people who ask tricky questions.
My recommendation would be the Daemonettes. Daemonettes are very deadly in close combat, especially against models with high armor saves.
Bloodletters are definitely more powerful, but they do cost you a big lump of points.
One option you seemed to have forgotten would be the Plaguebearers. Plaguebearers are very useful against high-toughness armies, such as the Orks. However, because they do not have a good armor-piercing ability, they are definitely not the best choice.
Also forgotten easily would be the Nurglings. Nurglings are very useful for swamping your opponents squads. 3-5 Nurglings can keep an assault squad busy for a few turns, allowing your troops to advance easily. However, you do need a squad/model with the Mark of Nurgle, or a pack of Plaguebearers, and they don't come very cheap.
For real assault power, Khorne Berzerkers are your most obvious choice. They come cheaper than Bloodletters, do not need to be summoned, and they are insanely powerful in close combat. The only reason I don't use them more is because I hate the fact that you only control them 2/3's of the time.

go for the daemonettes, cheaper then 'letters but still pack a good punch in combat.
Wir Werden Vorherrschen!

Ok cheers guys!!
I think i'll most likely go with them. Gotta wait 2 weeks for the toy store to get some in so that'll give me enough time to make my decision final.
Ack! Gave blood today. Tired etc
Definitely daemonettes. For the same points as a marine you get better combat punch and the warp scream ability reducing initiative values.
The only difference between tattooed people and non-tattooed people is that tattooed people are awesome and can kick your ass.

If you hadn't added the word cheap, I would go for bloodletters and deamonettes. But for a cheap, hard hitting ,fast, demon that ignores terrain and is cheap; look no further than the furies! their high strength and long range and multiple attacks can make them invaluable in cc. they wont hold the line alone but remember you said cheap!
Oops you didn't say cheap! But I got the feeling you meant low points cost, sorry!
Daemonettes or Plaguebearers, Plaguebearers are good to tied up enemy units, bat if u like something nice, cheap, sure and "clean" for cc action then Daemonettes without doubt.
MEAT IS MURDER
Daemonettes are the way to go dude everyone I know reccomends them. Myself I would go Plaguebearers just because of the whole plague thing and I don't like deamonettes because i've had the bad luck of having them just plain killed when useing other peoples army, if I use plague bearers instead of them I win right away... damn bad luck.
