I took first place at the local tournament with my Chaos Daemons! I'm thrilled because I've never managed to win a tournament at that particular place before (they always get 8-16 players, and they're really competitive).
My list is in the army section, under 1500/1850 points for local tournament, but basically it was (at 1500 points):
a Keeper of Secrets (with musk, but I wound up never using it)
two units of 8 plaguebearers (each with an icon)
two units of 5 pink horrors (each with bolt)
one unit of 5 fiends of Slaanesh
one unit of 4 Bloodcrushers
two daemon princes with MoT and bolt
one daemon prince with MoN, breath, noxious touch, flight, and cloud of flies
I broke them into two groups that were almost identical, each with a unit of pink horrors, plaguebearers, and daemon prince of Tzeentch. The preferred wave had the keeper of secrets and fiends, and the secondary wave has the prince of nurgle and bloodcrushers.
The first game had 3 objectives and my opponent was a Witch Hunter army. He'd never fought daemons before, and was caught off guard by how fast they were. I took casualties, but as soon as I reached his sister squads and vehicles with my fiends, princes, and keeper of secrets, it was basically over.
The second game was annihilation, against a very cheesy Imperial Guard army, filled with veterans, chimeras, vendettas, a leman russ with 5 plasma cannon shots a turn, some inducted Grey Knights (who stole one of the veteran's chimeras), and an inquisitor with two mystics. I kept accidentally scattering close to the mystics, and they allowed nearby units to blow me away on my turn! Still, I managed to eke out a victory by tying up his larger units with plaguebearers, and using the monstrous creatures and bolts to take out his chimeras and smaller units.
The final game was against a well balanced marines player in a 2 objective game (one in each deployment zone) with ties broken by kill points (needless to say, it was a special mission that the store likes to use, and not a standard one). He had three tactical squads in rhinos, a large unit of sternguard with Pedro Kantor, a predator, a vindicator, and a bike squad.
He started by rushing two tactical squads and the bikes towards the objective in my deployment zone. Since the winner of the match was guaranteed to win the tournament (it was just the way the points worked out, since neither of us lost or tied in any of the games until then), I decided to rush more or less everything towards his deployment zone, rather than try and claim two objectives. With sheer numbers and monstrous creatures, I overwhelmed Pedro and the sternguard, while the fiends and bloodcrushers blew up his vehicles. He shot away from afar, but just as in the previous matches, the speed of my army overwhelmed him. We tied for objectives, so it went to kill points, and I won 8-3 (only lost both Tzeentch princes and a unit of Pink Horrors).
If I had to give an MVP, it was definitely the Keeper of Secrets. With an initiative of 10, a weapon skill of 8, 7 attacks on the charge, assault grenades, and the ability to cover an incredible amount of distance each turn, he tore through everything in his path. The Fiends were a close second, as they tore through light vehicles and small squads, but fall a little shorter than the KoS just because they don't stand up to shooting too well.
In short: THREE CHEERS FOR SLAANESH! ^_^

also, is it legal to induct GK into a list that has psykers? wtf?
Sure is, they're psykers themselves.
Grats on the win grax, Fiends and Keepers rock.
