Slaanesh Daemons Kill Team

Following Tzeentch, I think the next easiest themed daemon army to get to work is the Slaaneshi one. They get to choose between fiends, daemonettes, and seekers.

Fiends of Slaanesh are just as awesome here as in a regular game. The only question is how many to take and whether to upgrade one with unholy might. I think in a low points value game, unholy might probably doesn't need to be there in combination with rending.

Daemonettes with the fleet and rending are also a good core choice. They don't have a high toughness and get killed fast, but once they're in combat, they should be winning, and winning fast. Again, I'm not tempted by any of the upgrades in a 200 point game. Although transfixing gaze may be cool, it just isn't worth it since I'd hope the opponent won't get a chance to strike back (fingers crossed).

Seekers are plain cool as well. Mounted daemonette cavalry with an extra attack has awesome written all over it.

Here's a couple of lists I came up with.

List 1:
10 seekers of Slaanesh (170 points)
1 fiend of Slaanesh (30 points)

List 2:
2 fiends of Slaanesh (60 points)
10 daemonettes of Slaanesh (140 points)

I'd prefer the first one, but I can't afford the models! In terms of special rules, the Slaaneshi force isn't short of movement, but could do with some staying power (feel no pain) in general.
