I am having 10500 pts battle this weak and i dont know how to deal with stupid deamon prince.My friend made it (310pts cost)i have some grey knights but it is risky even to hit him.which unit is good against deamon price.Help.I am playing for black templars
first off, im assuming you are playing a game of 1500 not 10500, cause that would be a giant game, and at that point, you wouldnt be worrying about a 310 pt DP.
Anyways, your Grey Knights are a good option, specially with the higher Str to hit him up. An incenerator is a decent idea too should your opponent take daemons sometimes.
Alternatively, take acouple Predators Destructors with sponson HB's and just load them out onto the DP. Honnestly, DP's die just as quick as marines if you shoot them enough. If you can pump 10-12 wounds into that DP a turn, he'll be dead in probably 2, potentially before you get to him.
Try NOT running forward to where the DP is deployed, and use the tactic i just told you to shoot the crap out of the DP. Move the rest of your forces forward to get into combat on the opposite sides of the DP. SHould he deploy in the middle, stand back and shoot with everyone, wait for the oppertune moments to assault.

Tri Las Predators are good for MCs. I wouldnt take Grey Knights, they are a huge point sink. Take PFs in your Crusader Squads in case you have to get to grips with it, though you should be doing this anyway really. Alternatively, I suppose you could use some Assault Cannon Termis. Idk though, for my MC worries I just use a tri las predator and a las/ml dread at 1500 and it works fine.
It's much more fun if you didn't write wrong, and meant the 10500; how about 4 warlord battle titans ! Take that DP.
On the serious 1500-side: weak him up with some shooting (even vanilla bolters is fine) and then charge in your assault terminators. (could be delivered from a land raider). Or you can just stay out of CC (at least try if he have wings) and shoot him to death. At 310 points that's a dam expensive DP. You have to take the chaos demons DP and give him almost everything to get those points. It's a rather bad build in my opinion in a 1500 chaos deamons list.
Heavy bolters and assault cannons work well. Don't shoot him up to the point of ignoring the rest of his army mind you, but as others have said just force him to take a lot of saves.
If you do take the Grey Knights a psycannon can be good.

I play against chaos reg and the best solutions are as explained above. More specifically in my experience, I have a Twin Linked Heavy Bolter Razorback with a PF Sgt. and a plasma rifle inside. I park it to screen a squad of 10 assault marines with Pfist and a chappy. Once the DP comes close, I either blast with the tac squad and razorback or shoot and move them out range of assualt and then counter charge with my assault squad -31 attacks that get to re roll, power fist and power weapons too! wrecks em every time.
It would be a big help if we could see your available units and maybe some of the upgrades to the demon prince.
My bad, forgot we were talking about BT army, I play vanilla. You crazy old school SM's
