    How to expand my army?

    With the holiday season coming up, I was wondering what my next move should be in expanding my Daemons army. I currently have:

    Lord of Change
    3 Flamers
    20 Bloodletters
    10 Plaguebearers
    Daemon Prince

    I was thinking I should probably get either some Daemonettes, some Flesh Hounds, or an alternate HQ that doesn't eat up 250 points, but I was hoping for a community opinion, as I am an inexperienced newbie player.

    Soul Grinders (give them phlegm)
    Fiends of Slaanesh
    Bloodcrusher of Khorne
    you'd have to convert it, but Herald of Tzeentch on Chariot

    Fiends, Tzeralds (Horror/Flamer + Disk + Screamer, or cheaper alternates), and DPs are always good.

    You definitely need some more close combat punch. I'd suggest filling out the heavy and elite slots. I always run either 3 daemon princes or 3 soul grinders in every daemon list, and fiends and/or bloodcrushers would be a welcome addition as well.

    Don't rely too heavily on the bloodletters. They're strong, and tear apart MEQ, but they're slow and can't deal with vehicles well. That's there the heavies, elites, and greater daemons come in.

    Heralds of Tzeentch are nice, as long as they have bolt, master of sorcery, and a chariots.

    Also add we are legion to them and they become fantastic able to fire bolt at tanks and gaze at MEQs.

    Eh, legion's alright if you have the spare points lying around, but I don't think it's that important. Daemonic gaze is a bit underwhelming. 3 shots = 2 hits = most likely 1 MEQ kill. It's definitely not bad, but it won't make or break your army.

    I have seen some people dropping legion for the soul devowerer. The chariot has poor WS but with furious charge you get decent S I and enough attacks to make polishing off small units worth a go. It does however mean the chariot getting closer to the enemy and risk getting charged by backup units.
