Default proxy game

hello everyone,
tomorrow i'll be playing a 1000 point proxy game against either space marines or tau, and im having a bit of trouble making an army list. so far ive got some basic ideas of the necessities, but please give me suggestions.

so far, it looks like ill need:
1. drop zone clearers (to make a safe landing zone for my other troops)
2. tank killers (daemon prince?)
3. scoring units
4. line breakers (are bloodcrushers any good?)

If there is any other basic necessity that I missed, please point it out. Also, if you have any army list suggestions, please let me know. I am leaning towards tzeentch and khorne, and the blue scribes look especially good.
beyond that, thank you all for your help!

2 squads of flamers would be nice anti-troop movers.

Several bolts of tzeench does a good job at anti tank.

Not a fan of the prince as antitank. Think soulgrinder is better. Battlecannon can clear troops as well. Watch out for meltas and railguns.

Bolt of tzeench into rear armour or side armour help remove tanks.

A tactic that works ok fo me is to ds my horrors to where they get assaulted. Than counter charge with juggernauts.

arent the horrors a little expensive to use as a distraction? :huh: what about with something like furies or plaugebearers?

My buddy has a Daemon army so I can only tell you what I don't like to play against.

Bloodletters are nasty, you can equip them all differently for WAC abuse and they hit hard and take decent punishment.

A minimal squad of flamers can be nice to clear objectives, but I wouldn't take more than that because their templates get in the way of each other.

Plagubearers are decent at sitting on an objective and being a thorn that is hard to remove, but other than that I don't see the point.

Soul Grinders are great, and are hard to kill. My firend always seems to miss with that high strength shot, but if you hit with it, it can do damage to tanks.

Bloodletters decimate Space Marines in close combat, just be careful deepstriking them because they fall to shooting easily.

Horrors can work nicely and be sure to bring the changeling. His power doesn't always work, but its real cheap and makes the opponent think twice about shooting near him.
