Welcome to Librarium Online!
Yes just wanted to know if anyone could help or give some pointers in what I can use for fighting Deamons of Choas.
The list I am fighting for now has 8 flamers and 8 screemers, and a bloodthirster and more in it, that is my big problem in the list is them 3 things. need some help.also I have almost everything in the vampire counts army.
This is nothing specific, but if this is a friendly game where you can tailor a list to fight just that then you shouldn't have too big a problem. Magic and combat res will be your biggest strength against him. Yes, he can put a hurting on you with magic, but you need to be able to hold your own and not cave in by going light on that. Bolster your units to a decent size and honestly try to tie up his units with multiples of yours. Flank charges will help. The big weakness with any Chaos army is the fact that their stuff is expensive which means they typically end up fielding the fewest amount of units than most armies in the game. That is why numbers can be to your advantage. Take the ability to increase your core units starting size and focus on getting to him. It is not much to go off of, but those are some basic strategies. For me, my biggest problems are not Chaos, but any army that shoots. Empire and Elves are what I dislike playing. I feel like I'm re-enacting Pickett's Charge at Gettysburg and hoping that somebody makes it across the bloody field to hit the enemy.
7 Direwolves with Doomwolf are a good way to tie up the blood thirster for 1 full turn allowing you to pin him down.
Rank and File units with raising support are your best bet for defeating his Thirster and surviving his flamers.
Magic heavy characters should allow you to get magic missiles off at his screamers and Flamers while still allowing you to raise.
VC rares are not much help against Daemons as they have good mobility and lots of flaming attacks. Blood knights with Flag of Blood Keep would be good if you could trap the Thirster with RnF.
