Well first thing first is to basically get FOC requirement filled up (1 HQ, 2 Troops).

But what kind of HQ that you desire and what troops are the question here. Do you have any theme that you want to go by? Or you just want your good o' normal CSM?

Well may i reccomend a Khorne lord with jump pack n other goodies or daemon prince, depends on what u want, 1 squad of khorne beserkers and a csm squad w mok and heavy weapon for support, that should cover your foc.

Most likely you want to be mobile to get to Close combat fast, and thus I would suggest a Khorne Lord with Jump packs and lightning claws, A few squad of Berserkers in Rhinos , Some Khornate raptors, and a few Predator to back your forces up. Either that o just take Obliterators for your heavy Support.

What does a blood thirster count as because i know it has wings but it's a monstrous creature aswell.

A Bloodthirster counts as a HQ choice, but doesn't take up any force organization charts

Greater Daemons are no longer distinguished by their gods. They are now all counted as 'Generic Greater Daemons'. They have good base stats for their price, but cannot be treated as having wings, even though both the bloodthirster and lord of change models have them.

You can take 0-1 Greater Demons. All greater demons are the exact same stat-wise (they don't have wings). You should really pick up a codex and look through it. That will answer your questions quickly and more accurately than we can here (we can't post specific rules).
